my outfit: mrs. drapey!

That's Mrs. Drapey - not to be confused with Mrs. Draper. The new Mrs. Draper is sweet French-Canadian Megan. She stole Don's heart and about all the women in America lost their dream "bad guy". Although, if you're still single, he may still have you... that's how he rolls, you know.


Last week I was slouchy, this week drapey... The day I wore this outfit I woke up raring to go to they gym... but my nasty cough is STILL with me folks. Still! I figured my fellow gym patrons and the staff wouldn't so much appreciate a lady hacking her lung out on the elliptical or on the abs floor so I took a pass.

For the record it is going on almost three weeks of no gym for me with Vegas and all this sickness. We are on high alert. We are getting scared. We are losing our breath on the stairs again. This is not good.

Instead of heading to the gym I took my energies out on my house, which in retrospect was a good idea. I prepped and organized all the winter clothes for the kids (scarfs, hats, gloves, etc) and inventoried what we still need and got rid of what doesn't fit, etc. I also organized their closets and even the basement a little. I probably did my stairs (basement to 2nd floor) 10 times or so. So maybe I'm even with the gym after all.

If you read this blog last winter you will recognize this sweater... it was deemed the "Mrs. Roper" sweater. Ahhh... good old Mrs. Roper. I was happy to drag it out again. It's warm, but light as a breeze. I look like I could maybe also fly in it... hmmm.

Super look! I bought the black and white version of the sweater earlier this year and I've only had the chance to wear it a couple of times, but boy people always compliment me on it. It's a great sweater, F21 should offer it again in other colors. I want to wear it more, but it's so darn warm here, it just will not drop below 80 until later this week. Sheesh...

I am so into the slouch cardi right forgiving. The bold stripe gives it a little interest. Love it!

I LOVE Mad Men! Here's to hoping Don Draper's done with all his other ladies for a while. :)

I also love this outfit - the necklace and sweater are a perfect combo.

Oh, I totally get your distress with the lack of working out Jill. I haven't done anything since my 10K race on September 19!! Immediately after the race I came down with a terrible cold/flu, and was sick for almost 2 weeks. Just as that was getting better, a short walk in a newish pair of shoes (which I'd worn a few times before that though) completely wrecked the back of my right heel. A spot with about an inch diameter of just completely tore up skin, oozing and tender, and expanding every time I wore shoes. I even bought the blister things you recommended, which helped a little, but not much. Then, in the last few days I noticed it was finally starting to get a little crusty/scabby (gross, I know, but better for me to walk in, and on the way to healing). Then yesterday, I woke up and my knee was so swollen and sore I could barely walk. WTF!!! I have barely moved in weeks, why is my knee swollen?? I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon, hopefully whatever this is will be short-lived. I've only gained 2 lbs after all this, so it's not too bad, but I am definitely doughier, and need to start working out soon!
