Fall Fashion Week: day dos

so I'm a little disappointed in my arizona weather. after going through everyone's fashion posts yesterday I've come to the conclusion that either every blogger who participated live really close to each other or my home town is just unlucky. everyone seemed to be having a rainy monday - not here in apache junction/miami, az. nope. clouds, sure, but no rain.

for those of you who are curious: here's my "out the door" look at 5 o'clock in the morning.
flannel: target
jeans: vf factory
holes in jeans: copper sulfate solution
belts: target
purple cons: kohl's

that's my: I'm-totally-awake-now-and-motivated-to-work look. I work at a copper mine. I don't have to wear a uniform persay, but we do have strict dress code policies (well not too strict, but again, the risk of getting acid on your clothes kind of prevents you from wearing anything too nice - see exhibit a: torn up jeans - totally did not buy them like this). this is what I wear to work usually (fall edition) and when I get to the mine I change into my steel toed boots, add a few more layers (it's usually around 10 degrees cooler at work - ew) put on my red hard hat, my scratch up safety glasses, and my over-sized reflective safety vest. not too cute.

I had such good intent to come home from work yesterday and take a trip to kohls to take advantage of their sale and my 30% off coupon (seriously - how does that store make any profit??) since I realized that I don't have much of a fall wardrobe. well it didn't happen because my monday sucked and I didn't feel like doing anything when I got home. I barely found the energy to get dressed up. buuuut I did.
top: charlotte russe
jeans: kohl's
black & white puppy = pepper
brown puppy = ginger

we recently got some trees for our bare backyard. I'm posing next to our new eucalyptus. I started a tradition in my family that whenever anyone in the family buys their first house, you have to plant a eucalyptus. my parents planted one when they moved into their first house, so I thought it would be neat to make it a tradition. if you've never seen a full grown eucalyptus before they get huge. monsterous. the trunk is probably as thick as I am tall minus a foot or two. (at least the one we had growing up was.) I'm not sure why ours is so funny looking though. I thought it'd be funny to pretend to pose next to a huge tree. and of course my pups couldn't resist getting in my pictures.

the accessories:
kick-ass blue cons: kohl's
peacock necklace: forever 21
key earrings: target
teal blue nail polish (if you can see it): walgreens

my "photographer" wanted to join in the fun too.

unfortunately, I don't think my outfits will get much more exciting this week as fashion week came at a bad time for me. this week is a super busy week. I've got to finish putting together my office furniture, today marks the opening of the suns season, date night wednesday (hopefully), dinner for the parents thursday, and sun home opener vs. the lakers on friday which we'll be attending. so I'll try to make time for fashion.

check out the other awesome fashionistas here!
