Since yesterday morning it's been crazy to see all the damage that hurricane Sandy has done to the Northeast! It gives me chills to see how quickly a lot of people have lost everything. My area got very lucky and we barely had any damage, but certainly puts things in perspective. My own brother who lives close to the CT shore has lots of damage, lost his car, motorcycle, garage and his roof is damaged! But thankfully he and his expecting wife are OK! Still no power though, so if he does not get it back soon he will have to come stay with me or my mom! But all those things are replaceable, I'm just glad they are OK. So hopefully those of you affected can get the help you need in order to bring some normalcy back to your lives.

Today's outfit is featuring a polka dot tee and my super comfy knit blazer from the LOFT. Greyish colors, but added a little warmth with my natural tone boots.  I think I mentioned before that I like to wear a different color boots than my pants so they stand out more!   I very rarely will wear matching boots to my pants! Oh and Happy Halloween & Trick or treating.  Scroll down for a sneak peat at baby Emma's costume :)

  7. I live at the Jersey Shore...about 4 miles in...so our home was OK...but not the same for so many of my friends. We evacuated to our philly condo on Tuesday for power...I have an 8 week old and couldn't have no heat/bottle warmer etc. Been a scary and emotional few days..hope your brother recovers all his lost posessions but most importantly he is safe. Crazy what this storm did.

    Anyway...I swoon over those boots...you wore them recently and I love them more and mroe each time I see them...great mix of color.

    You lil one has the sweetest face..OMG!

  8. The polka dots with strips combo is classic! Love it!

  9. Your boots are gorgeous, and I love the pattern mixing! I found your blog through Marion's trend of the month linkup, and just started following you on GFC. I would love it if you have a chance to check out my blog, let me know what you think, and follow if you like it! =)
