Stripes, Solids, Ducks and Mud

Although this will be more of an update than a fashion post, I just wanted to throw a few pictures; this is from the last week of warm weather here in the mitten! 
           Although I hear it's supposed to be 80 tomorrow! What kind of fall  
               weather is upon us?!

Top: Charlotte Russe/ Skirt: French Connection (similar)/ Purse: Target/ Shoes: Keds/ Bracelet&Rings: F21
I loved this skirt from the moment I laid eyes on it, and knew that I had to debut it with this bargain top from Charlotte Russe.
  Seriously, where you can find such a versatile striped top for like .... $5?!

I don't care what you say, good bargains from CR can be a basic staple for any gal's closet! I know they certainly are in mine!


 We went to (what my town calls) the 'Island'; it's pretty much a gathering place for local ducks and fishermen. Luckily, I scored some free ice cream out of the deal, so I was not complaining one bit!

In other news! Claud and I competed in the Muddy Patriot! It was a riot, to say the least.

Pre-race: 'Game-Face'

 Not tooting our own horns, because we actually had to WALK most of the 1.5 miles. 

You definitely don't leave feeling 'squeaky clean'!

So, it was one tough competition, but I loved getting to jump through mud, swing on ropes, and laugh through all of it with Claud! 

What a treat!

Until next time,vive una vida bonita!
