Friday through Tuesday

I am such a blog slacker! Sorry, work has been pretty busy and next thing I know I am on the Metro and I never uploaded my daily pictures! Well here's a recap since Friday…

Friday's Look:
Picture 0251Picture 0262Attire:
Liz Lange for Target: Green and navy print top
Old Navy: “The Flirt” bootcut jeans
J. Crew: Navy bead necklace
Isabel & Oliver: Black Bella Band
Callisto: Beige leather heeled sandals

Day 3, just brushed out
Cover Girl: Smoothers tinted moisturizer in Light/Medium, LashBlast waterproof mascara in Very Black
Nars: Blush in Orgasm
Revlon: Super Lustrous lip gloss in Pink Afterglow
Maybelline: Shadow quad in Mocha Motion – the gray light on lid, brow powder in Dark Brown, UltraLiner in Black

I hardly remember Saturday. We ran a ton of errands, did some home improvements, and treated ourselves to an early dinner at Hard Times Cafe (where they have pretty darn good veggie burgers and chili!). I wore my olive linen shift from Old Navy (which has another week or two before it is too small), brown stacked flops from J. Crew and my silver hoops and cuff.

Sunday my husband taught yoga, we then hit the town's Farmers Market and then we went to visit my husband's grandparents. We hadn't seen them since Easter and though they knew we were pregnant, we wanted to spend time with them in person. It was a lovely time and good to see them again.

For the visit, wore my bright purple woven knit top from Kenar with my black Ann Taylor trousers held up with safety pins (too hot to wear the Bella Band), black sandals, silver necklace from The Limited. Essentially the same look as this previous Wednesday.

Monday's Look:

Monday was pretty cool because I had lunch with an old friend. This woman and I went to kindergarten through 8th grade together, grew up just a couple of blocks from one another, were even in an after-school playgroup together (one of those fabulous setups where one mom would watch all of us after kindergarten so the other moms could run errands or have a lovely kid-free afternoon). We went to different high schools and lost touch, but she found me on Facebook. It was so cool to see her again, hear show she and her family has been doing and to renew our friendship!

    I came over to your blog and see that you are pregnant!! Congratulations!! I’ve been out of it lately and haven’t been doing much blogging. You look great and I’m so happy for you. We’re trying too so hopefully I’ll be following some maternity style advice from you.

    love the full length mirror photos! Great idea!

    Hope you don’t mind, but I left you an award at my blog. Just visit to pick it up. (If you want)

    You are looking great, Allie!

    And, oops, I tagged you for 2008 Premio, as well. 🙂

    Allie, I have been reading your blog for about a month and have to say, “I love it!” You make some great points on here and Wardrobe Oxygen that speak to women and their desire to be both intelligent and beautiful.

    Recently on Wardrobe Oxygen you had two posts where you discussed wedding style (attire and make-up). My boyfriend and I are attending 9 weddings between August and October, and I would like to do something different with my hair. It’s cut in a short bob that is longer in the front and shorter in the back. I have thick dark hair, which although stylists and my friends “love” I could at times do without. If it wasn’t for the invention of the flat iron I don’t know what I would do! I have noticed you are quite handy with a curling iron, and I was thinking about curling my hair in some way to create a different, but subtle look. I want to look classy, but not to made up. My boyfriend is th best man in one of the weddings so I am feeling some added pressure to look nice (mainly from myself). Any tips for curling hair? Your curls always look great!

    I totally believe in karma 😉 That was passed to me by a fellow blogger. But no worries, I WILL return and dole out the karma regularly! 🙂

  10. July 22, 2008 / 2:27 pm

    Nope, they are usually taken in the spare room in my house that is home office, junk room and exercise room. Soon to be baby room! 🙂

    I just figured me sopping wet wasn’t a good representation of how I ended up looking the rest of the day! 😀

    I love the coral top, it looks great against your skin tone!
    Just being nosey but do you always take your picutres at work?
