Governmental

Beret: Forever 21
Scarf: Borrowed from Darin
Blouse: Tucker for Target
Puffy coat, skirt: Gap
Tights: Hue
Bag, shoes: thrifted
My father is officially retired from 24 years of government work! I can't believe this day has come! Hopefully, this means that he and I can catch up on Laurel & Hardy/Little Rascals watching. It's been a while. He can finally get his priorities straight!

This ensemble took me from work to dad's retirement party to coffee with our friend Joseph. Full disclosure: I am now wearing gnome-adorned pajama pants and Darin's thermal. We had kosher pigs in a blanket and corn for dinner and Rowena took a four hour nap followed by dinner and a bath followed by another nap. Still following? I'm not either. Off to bed with me! (Hmm, that sounded weird.)

Have a lovely & lively Tuesday!

  1. I really love that purse, what a good thrift find! And that mustard hat...I am completely besotted with yellow at the moment. I hope all of the Laurel and Hardy watching is wonderful, I used to watch Laurel and Hardy all the time with my dad when I was little. They are hilarious!

  3. That was such a beautiful post on your father that you did below. A huge congrats to him and wishes for many years of health and happiness.

    I just love everything about this outfit. I was soooo tempted to buy that top a couple weeks ago, but I didn't b/c blouses never look right on me - but it looks absolutely gorgeous on you (now of course I am kicking myself). Again - I adore all the elements here. You've created the perfect fall color palette. You continually give me loads of inspiration:)

    P.S. Later on this week I will be posting an outfit that was inspired by you. Hope you don't mind:) I'll link back to you. Have a lovely day!!
