Happy November!

 You know when it's been a while since your last optometrist visit when your eye doctor says "Wow, how are you able to see with these!?" (holding up current glasses).   With my recent visit to the doctor+new prescription=these new glasses!   I went to pick out glasses with eyes dilated...and well, the ones I picked out ended up being Ray Bans(I could not tell at the time). The price I thought I saw was completely different from the actual price and not at all affordable even with insurance.  So, I left without ordering new glasses to find a free glasses coupon online at in my email inbox.  So, same style as the Ray Bans I wanted but FREE!  Yay!

In other news, we are leaving to go overseas with my husbands high school choir in just 2 days!  This trip has played a biiiggg part in why blog posts have become scarce.  I have had some great outfits in the past month, just no one to take my picture (husband off doing choir rehearsals, fundraisers, ect).  It's either that or it is too dark...I get home from work around 7pm, bleh.

With that, I hope to start putting out more posts in the future!  

Happy November, folks...we will be back from our trip to Germany, Czech Republic, and Austria December 1st!!!

I leave you with a lovely picture of a snow topped mountain out my kitchen window...

Hangin' Around

Just bumming around town for this Columbus Day. 
 Went out for my free Starbucks rewards drink after getting my hair dyed ombre (my first time to ever have my hair professionally dyed).  I love the results of my ombre hair, the colors are perfect for fall!

What do you think about ombre hair?

Casual with a Side of Bling

As outfit post (finally)!

This is my favorite type of outfit.  I love the feeling of being somewhat dressed up but comfortable at the same time. The necklace and leopard flats take this casual outfit up a notch, the perfect outfit for running around town!

It's That Time Again....

Well folks, it's that time of the year again.   Fall.

I love this season, but I very much dislike how the sun sets earlier and earlier in the evening.  I now have about a 30 minute window of sunlight after work.  This means it is becoming increasingly harder for me to even think about taking blog photos.  I guess I must resort to the weekends!

Update on my life as of late:
I am 2 months in to my new job as an outpatient therapist at a regional medical hospital here in New Mexico.  I started as a pediatric therapist and am now working both pediatrics and adult rehabilitation and LOVING being able to experience both settings!

Also, I have been hiking quite a bit.  As always, I can't help but share my pictures from my hiking adventures!! 

 This is from Wheeler Peak, Taos Ski Basin.  Highest mountain in New Mexico at 13,161ft elevation.  This his is in my top 5 favorites, can't wait to go back!

Thanks for stopping by!  Outfit post coming soon!

Magenta and Chambray

Another one of the staples in my closet is this chambray blazer.  Like my military style vest, it seems to go with just about anything.  If you have been a follower of PWP for a while, then you've probably seen this blazer in quite a few of my outfit posts. 

I wore this outfit to Santa Fe for a very busy night out.  We went to a friends birthday party and then to watch another friends band play at a restaurant near the plaza.  It was a fun night! I always love an excuse to go out on the town in Santa Fe (I work in SF but I just drive strait to work and back).

Once I got in the car I remembered to remove the hair tie from my wrist!  I keep forgetting I have it on there until after my pictures.

Return of the Military Vest

Have I mentioned how much I love this military vest? 
If military vests ever go out of style I will be very sad...and probably still wear them anyway.

This striped shirt alone makes me look wider than I am, so using a vest or blazer cuts off the full view of the striped top and allows me to wear my stripes without looking in the mirror and going "yikes, what happened"!?!?
