I came across these beauties on Instagram…to die for!  Joe’s Insta had the Joe’s Jeans Off Duty Releve Leggings styled with a Guns and Roses Appetite for Destruction tee for a post-yoga stretch.  Throw on a jean jacket and a pair of snake print slip on’s and you are good to go for a night out on the town!  I can’t decide whether to go for the gun-metal crackle (pictured below) or black.  Or both??

Mr. Tom Crawford says it is supposed to be a cool Halloween weekend!  I’m having my annual pre-Trick or Treat Halloween party this Friday night.  Everything is in the road…except my costume.  One would think I would have what to wear in the bag…not so!  I’m not creative in that way-for myself at least.  If anyone has any suggestions…please DO TELL!

Fun pictures to follow!  Happy Hump Day friends!  XOXO,  Catherine

Fall Ready…

I am…it’s true!  Though we all know I love summer and all that it entails, #1-I’m tired of being hot all the time.  #2-I’m over my spring/summer wardrobe.  #3-I’m ready to don by most favorite designer denim and new booties to watch Fall Football!

In case you were under a rock this past weekend-or don’t follow SEC Football…USC narrowly beat UGA in I have to say one of the best, most well-played games I have seen within this match-up in years!  I went to a watch party in my neighborhood and we were on our feet the entire time screaming our heads off cheering our Gamecocks to victory!   My favorite tailgate snack was Liz’s Buffalo Chicken Dip…hot, tangy and delicious and easy to make!  The below version is from allrecipes.com and looks easy to modify depending on your taste:

Buffalo Chicken Dip

~8oz. cream cheese softened
~1/2 cup blue cheese salad dressing
~1/2 cup grated mozzarella
~2 cans premium white chunk chicken breast, drained
~blue cheese crumbles to top

Soften cream cheese and blend ingredients.  I am weird about how much dressing goes in-this is a case of less is more.   Pre-Heat oven to 350 and bake for 20 minutes-at the 15 minute mark, add blue cheese crumbles to the top…serve with the “Scoop” Fritoes, crackers, or assorted veggies!  Delish!

Big news this weekend out of Cali…Lauren Conrad tied the knot with super adorable William Tell.  Our favorite Laguna Beach and The Hills alumni, the girl next door whose life we have watched unfold since she was 17 wed her proverbial musician/lawyer in shining armor.

LC& WT

No official (or unofficial for that matter) wedding photos have been released but it is confirmed that the nuptials were a fabulous affair attended by the couples nearest and dearest.  Her long time bestie Lo Bosworth author of thelodown.com served as bridesmaid along with 8 other close friends who dressed in mismatched dresses from Lauren’s dress line Paper Crown.  Though we all loved Jason, Stephen and Brody…I think Mr. Tell is LC’s prince among men.  Who would you have picked for Mrs. Multifaceted Empire’s Mr.??!  Discuss…

I just ordered these two pieces from Nordstrom to add to my lackluster fall workout attire.  Both are 40% off!

Happy 30th Harry!

Prince Harry

I remember his birth like it was someone in my family.  The world watched as Princess Di-the people’s princess moved through her marriage and the birth of the adorable Princes (literally)-it’s crazy to think he is 30!   UK Harper’s profiles his life in pictures.  Click HERE to see these adorable snaps!  **ps, I guess P Charles was not so into Sporty Spice…
