Cowl-abunga, it's Tuesday!

Since I wore bright pink and red yesterday, I thought I might want to fall into autumn colors today. On a side note, I just realized my brother's bat wasn't cropped out of this pic. Note to self - Move bat. Okay, back to the outfit. Here are the details...

Worthington cowl-neck sleeveless knit - JCP
Isaac Mizrahi dark denim pencil skirt - Target
Gold beaded necklace - Target
Impo faux snakeskin pumps - Rack Room


I'm so happy to have my snakeskin shoes back from the hospital. I've had them for years and just love them because you can practically wear them with anything. Of course after a while, they were looking pretty sad, but after a minor face lift, they have sole again. Now I can slither through the office again.

Last night I finally got around to making E's cranberry applesauce. Well it didn't come out exactly the same, but it wasn't my fault. There wasn't a cranberry to be found. I guess the grocery stores aren't fully stocked just yet after all that Ike non-sense. Since I had some peaches at the house, I substituted the 6 oz of cranberries for 2 large peaches. I also added the orange zest. Because the peaches were pretty sweet, I added just a tad bit of brown sugar (little less than 1/4 c). It turned out so yummy! Thanks E for the fab recipe. Once they get the cranberries in, I'll be trying that out too.

Oh and don't forget to suggest a song for my next workout playlist. I see I already have some good ones. I'll be rockin' on that treadmill in no time. Thanks!

Thanks! Sorry to say though, the sleeveless brown cowl was bought about a year ago now. I'll keep my eye out for you though.
