Polished for Potluck Wednesday

I look sleepy in this pic. Here I am off to work. We stopped outside and took a quick pic. Here are the details...

Swiss dotted white button-up - Gap
Mossimo short sleeve jacket - Target
Skinny Belt - Macy's
Pencil skirt - Anthropologie
Lined tights - Kroger's
Maripe peeps - Rack Room
Fab necklace - gifted from KT!

So I read these tips from Jessica on taking your daily outfit pic and thought I'd try the outside thing. Of course with Will taking the pic, I can only get 2 or 3 out of him to choose from. Not sure if the morning light agrees with me, but I'll probably play around with it in the next few days.

Today we had a Thanksgiving potluck at work today. I made my famous peanut butter mousse pie. It's definitely not healthy, but it sure is fab! If you care for the recipe, let me know. I'll either shoot it to you via e-mail or I'll post it up.

So while making 2 pies (for my office and one for Will's), I was a little obsessed with tv last night. First I watch The Biggest Loser. Why am I always in tears when I watch this show? Next up was The Housewives of Atlanta. Is anyone watching that show??? All I can say is OMG!!! I somewhat watched the other Housewives, but this Atlanta season have been captivating, crazy, and hilarious. I soooo can't wait till the reunion show next week!

Yay! I'm glad you like the necklace. I keep hearing people say the Housewives of Atlanta thing is pretty entertaining. I need to check it out!

Trace said...

Another awesome outfit! The belt and the necklace really polish it off. The dessert looks delicious too, I will definitely take note if you post the recipe!

Leslie said...

Oooh I like that skirt! Those v lines are so chic and slimming! Love optical illusions like that.

Katie said...

I'm glad your potluck went better than mine! :-) Your pie/cake looks delicious!

I soooo love this! The whole outfit is gorgeously polished, but I'm particularly loving the skirt -- as Leslie said, those V-lines are terrific...stylish & flattering. Really, what a great look. Oh, and the outdoor light absolutely agrees with you :)

Ally said...

Okay, a few things:

1) Love your outfit and the outside pic.

2) I want that pie!

3) I freakin love that show! I can't WAIT for the reunion show. Have you read all the gossip going around about it? Evidently Kim gets all crappy with Lisa and L goes off on her.

Love the outfit!

I also LOVE The Houswives of Atlanta too. I heard that Kim and Big Papa broke up and he's in the middle of a DIVORCE! She was hitting on Mario Lopez on Extra last night (I couldn't sleep!).

When is the renunion show is? Lisa's so nice, I want to see her kick Kim's bleep, bleep. Does Kim wear a wig? I can't figure her hairdo out.

Ally said...

I watched that too!

Evidently Kim said some crap about Lisa's kids. Lisa is my favorite but you know she'd cut you. hahaha

Her ex is Keith Sweat and her two oldest kids are by him and the baby is with Ed.

I think Kim's hair is a bad weave. I love how she says she's 30. Whatever!

I think the reunion show is either next Tuesday night or the week after that. The finale was last night so it'll be soon.

First of, thank you for the compliments on the outfit. This skirt is one of my favorite purchases when I worked for Anthropologie. It has always served me well!

Ok now on to the juice! RHOA is a trip! Kim needs to buy some better hair and she needs to clean her ears. SHe cannot sing. Plus if she is botoxing at 29, and has been for years, somethings wrong. Check out Dallas Austin's blog on myspace and see what he wrote about working with her. And in my opinion... if you can't sew or sketch your own design, you are not a designer, Sheree. Ok sorry, had to get it all out!

You know I love all of the RH shows, but the ATL is my absolute Fav! I agree with Ally, PPP, and you. I CAN NOT wait to see the reunion. Seriously, Kim is NOT 29 or 30, whatever! She needs to learn to line the lips, sing, and get a new weave. The others are okay.
