Fashion Fall Colors Challenge 2012: PUMPKIN!!

So, I woke up to a rainy, cold, dreary, gray morning. I also woke up to a cold, runny nose, fatigue and sneezing. I hate being sick. I have a weak immune system and it's easy for me to get what ever viruses, flus and allergies are flowing around. Fortunately, they usually don't last many days and are usually light, no fever. Carrying a baby now, every time I have gotten a virus or a cold during this pregnancy, I have been extra careful and quite worried. I have only drank lots of fluids, taken lots of vitamin C and just the one (soft) over-the-counter drug that is allowed for pregnant women. Anyway...

Yesterday was the third day of the Fashion Challenge and the color was Pumpkin. (Love that name, makes it more season-appropriate.) I don't own a lot of orange/pumpkin, but I still have a few pieces. I paired my pretty sweetheart-neckline, pumpkin tee with a classic and simple black cardigan, skinny black cords & comfy flat boots. You see it's the same silouhette as yesterday's Challenge post in Wine: cardigan, tee, corduroys (skinny pants), headband and even the same earrings. It might be a boring repeat of the previous day, but I figured I was comfy and cute and when something isn't broke don't try to fix it. =)

    1. So do I. I think some sleep will do me well, too. I plan on hitting the bed as soon as I get home from work, today. =)

  3. When something works it works! Hope you feel better soon. It's important to take care of yourself, especially when you're under the weather.

    1. Thanks Megan. I agree: when something works, it just works. You put it so well. =) I am trying my best to drink juices and take lots of Vitamin C, these days.
