Fall 2015 Ponchos, Leggings, Pumps....Oh My!


Believe it or not, I am so thankful it is the beginning of a new week.  While I am loving my new business venture, it is also a challenge to do it all…worker, wife, mother, grandmother. Sigh… I did not have a good week last week.


 For the first time in my life, I completely forgot an appointment and did not show up…I also forgot a prospective client phone call…I forgot to set my alarm and missed weight training class on Tuesday…I did not eat healthy or exercise…and for the grand finale…I hit my husband’s car pulling out of the driveway!

 Very un-characteristic of me.  However, my daughter and two grandbabies have been with us for five weeks and there are three weeks remaining…all of us are scrambling to do it all. I suppose this is where a top notch personal assistant would come in handy!  I found myself asking...can I still do it all?




I hate to be off my game…it makes
 me feel old and out of control.  Does anyone else experience these feelings when you make mistakes later in life?

 I will be purposeful this week to set alarms, look at my schedule, and yes, look in the rearview mirror!

This is a great outfit for doing it all…every piece of it is from a different place and I love the look!  I guess putting a lot of different pieces together makes for a successful whole… hmmm, I need to remember that!

  2. Hope the upcoming week is better, Pam. As my husband always says to me..." Slow down, bring your shoulders down from up around your ears...and breathe."

  3. PAM I ALWAYS THINK YOU LOOK SO PUT TOGETHER ALTHO BAD ME, I HAVE NEVER COMMENTED, BUT YOUR BAD WEEK HAS 'INSPIRED ME', AS I HAD A BAD WEEK TOO. PAINTED TWO DAYS ON A LADDER AT MY CHURCH AND FELL DOWN IN MY OWN LAUNDRY ROOM GOING TO CLEAN MY PAINT BRUSH AND BROKE MY ARM. DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR MANTRA IS BUT MINE IS FROM ROMANS 8:28, "ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD'....IT TOOK ME THREE MISERABLE DAYS TO FINALLY GET THERE AND I DID AND I ALSO HAVE A CUTE NEW PINK FASHION ACCESSORY ON MY RIGHT ARM WHICH IS WHY IM TYPING IN CAPS AND ONE FINGERED. I LOVE YOU IN GLASSES. KATHY HENDERSON

  4. I love your poncho, and the tassel necklace is perfect with it! Over here, you can live in a look like that pretty much year-round.

  6. We all have days, weeks, months like that, Pamela! Don't be hard on yourself. Knowing you, you've always picked yourself up and started over again. So...good for you!

    I wish we had a Stein Mart near us. The one we go to in FL is great and I always find something wonderful there. Love your outfit. LOVE LOVE LOVE ponchos!

  7. Sounds like a pretty lousy week. I think when others are living with us, even when we love having them, it knocks us off of our game a bit. We spend more time visiting, helping others, etc., and lack that quiet downtime to plan and review. Hope this is a better week - ponchos are so hot this season!

  8. I love the outfit Pam although I'm not crazy about the shoes. I had to take a step back and breath last week myself. Between babysitting the twins full time, taking care of mom, 2 blogs and just finished my first novel I was beginning to feel overwhelmed. I don't know why I continue to over schedule my days like I do! I hope you have a terrific week this week.

  9. Oh, Pam...we all get these days we have such busy minds and spend so much time rushing about...we need to slow down a little and breathe I'm always telling myself this! You're looking fabulous, as always :)

  10. Pam we all have weeks like this and I know what a bummer it is. Look at you though, up and running again! Guess what, I found the Bernie Mev shoes and they are so comfortable!! You inspire me so so much!

  11. Bad weeks are no good, but I've learned to give myself a bit of a break when I have one. Somedays is ok not to check everything off your list. But missing an appointment does feel bad. Great outfit.

  15. Hope the rest of your week is better! You look adorable and I’ve been wondering if I should try a poncho this season.

  17. Chic and comfy look, Pam! I want to be wearing that right now! And yes, I totally get how you're feeling. Some days I just feel so behind or I forget some important errand and feel mad at myself about it. Or like this week, I usually post on Monday and Thursday, but here it is halfway through Monday with no post yet. Oh well, right? I'm having more fun today reading everybody else's posts!

    Thanks so much for sharing with Fun Fashion Friday!
