A Military Jacket & The Blended Blog Launch
In typical Pacific Northwest style, fall has come crashing in without warning. Not even a postcard or phone call to announce its impending arrival.
Luckily, I'm prepared! I've been searching for a new military jacket since spring. Last week, while back to school shopping with my son (who, by the way, informed me that we don't shop well together - how rude!), I stopped by the Wet Seal store. I can't remember why I went in, since I'm a good twenty five years beyond their target market. Anyway, I'm glad I did, because I found the perfect jacket. It's the perfect weight, perfect color, perfect fit - and it has a hood. I did size up to a large so I can wear it over sweaters when it gets colder. They are out of olive online, but the red color is really pretty too.
Speaking of fall, it's time to sign up for Alison's Fall Style Challenge. Early bird registration runs from this Friday, 9/11 until 9/17. The shopping list will be released on 9/18 and the first of 21 outfits comes out 10/4. This will be my seventh challenge, and fall is always my favorite. I hope you'll join me!

And finally, the most exciting news of the day - the launch of The Blended Blog!
We've been working on this space since June, when Deena proposed the idea to Carrie and me in San Antonio. I hope you'll hop over and read the introductory post, and find out what the new collective is all about. With our fabulous group of women collaborating, it's going to be amazing!
