Happy fall, y'all. This week, I'm participating in BLOGtober Fest, a fun and delightful challenge from Arkansas Women Bloggers. We must write something each day from October 15-19. They even give us the topics, which this working gal loves; a few decisions I don't have to make.
And our first topic is...fashion and decorating. I'm being perfectly honest; when I saw this topic, I thought...le sigh.
I'm aware that there are many, many blogs that are full of good writing about such things. But I don't read a lot of them, and mine isn't one of them.
Here's the thing. I'm not crafty or decorative. My halloween/fall decor consists of a sparkly cat my dad bought me at Lowe's and a silver pumpkin candle my mom bought me two years ago. I love this new little silver leaf knicknack my friend got me as a present last week, and the OTHER pumpkin candle another friend gave me (both pictured at left), but that's about as far as it goes.
On the fashion front, yes, I've become obsessed with boots lately (and through 10/23 you can still enter to win a pair of kick-ass boots here), but aside from wishing I was more fashionable (or at least skinny enough to wear more fashionable clothes), I don't have much to contribute to the dicussion.
And at this particular moment in time, when so much of such importance is going on in the world, I wish that we could have supportive, civilized discussion (like we do about fashion, decor and cooking) about politics, world events and social issues.
But I know that's a pipe dream. So instead, I'll link you off to a few of my fellow bloggers who are talking about fashion and decor, with so much more skill and passion than I have.
Approaching Joy - the lovely, sweet and talented Paige can give you all kind of fashion inspiration, and plus, she's just a really nice gal, so go check her out.
In the "not a blog" category I give you: There are about about a million boot giveaways happening via Country Outfitter right now, so check out this pinterest page or just go like Country Outfitter on facebook.
You'll also see some pins about cool fashion/refashion tips on ohbygollyblog.com.
Catalog Living - ok, this is a humor site, but it's one of my favorites because it takes pictures from catalogs and creates stories about the people who live there. Their names are Gary & Elaine.
The Inspired Room - I found this blog on a google search for "decor" - such pretty pictures. I want to live in those pictures.
Happy fashioning and decoring. Until tomorrow, when I will hopefully have something more interesting to say.
