What I’m Loving Wednesday 10.2.13

1. I feel like the easiest way to transition from spring pastels and summer neons is to dive into neutrals. I’m just not ready for my annual winter blackout. (Yes, I LOVE wearing all black in the winter.) How fun are these Gap leopard print skinnies? They were practically giving them away for free this weekend.leopard

What color top would you wear with them? I wore white (again, neutral fan right now), but could easily pair them with a bright color. Advice welcome!

2. Now you can see them closer in this picture, along with these new M&M’s. I admit to being a marketer’s dream, falling for every new version of anything. Football chocolate! touchdown mix m&m's

I had to buy M&M’s to make cookies for someone, so the obvious decision was to buy the “cuter” ones, right? Yeah yeah yeah. Now drool over this dough.

3. And speaking of M&M’s, have you guys read about the Birthday Cake flavor? They come out in May 2014, so let’s start our 8 month countdown now.

How good will these taste on top of birthday cake ice cream?

4. Thanks to reader Cate, I hunted down this Coconut Crushed Pearl body butter by Pacifica. If you can’t have any baked goods, you might as well smell like one. Bonus: It shimmers!

5. E-cards are the best. Here’s to you, future ex-boyfriend:

And this one. Gotta love a back-handed compliment.

6. This Sunday, October 6th, I’m part of a fundraiser supporting Florence Crittendon Programs of SC. Along with several other ladies, I’ll be one of the shoe models at event featuring wine tastings, a designer boutique market-place, a fashion show, and a live auction.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

    ah! How cool is that event? You look gorgeous in the picture!! Those skinnies are super cute. I’d do a bright color with them- like a pink or green!Birthday cake M&Ms? Those might make food blog world explode

    • aww, thank you! ahahha so true, the food blog world will explode. agreed on pink!

  • Karen @ Runner Girl Eats

    I ama sucker for any m&m and am definitely counting down the days for the birthday cake flavor release. Also, those pants are adorable and perfect for Fall!

    • seriously…it’s the month before my birthday month so i will definitely be celebrating with those.

    Congrats on that shoe modeling opportunity! You are too cute in that picture. And birthday cake m&ms?! omg – need.

    • thanks! i know. you need them for your froyo. miss you!

  • I love trying new m&m flavors! I would pair those pants with a bright orange top and lots of gold accessories 🙂

  • Megan

    Love those skinnies! Almost any color would go great with them! Coral, deep teal, black. Both of those e-cards are spot on. Cameron told me we could start eating carbs again and I was like nooooooo, I don’t want a winter coat of fat! Because let’s be honest, I have totally fallen off of the gym train.

    • ooh coral is good. a winter coat of fat? haha. god, the worst is when you put on your winter coat and it’s too tight…and then you remember wait you have to put on a sweater first too. CRAP.

  • Cate Hartnett

    Thanks for the shout out! Now I need to get moving on my frequent posting. :). I’m obsessed with the coconut lotion. Obsessed.
    I love the pants! I think cobalt blue would look great with them.
    Congrats on the modeling gig if I was local, I’d definitely go!

  • Brittan Morris

    Ugh I wish I could pull off skinny pants. Lucky! I love those. My hips are way too big!

  • Erin @ The Grass Skirt Blog

    It is very dangerous for a pregnant woman to know about birthday cake flavored M&Ms!

  • birthday cake m&m’s?! okay YES i’d try that 🙂 as for the skinnes — maybe a blue top? or coral or even stick with the gray. i think you have some options for sure. xo jillian – cornflake dreams

    um, i am such a sucker for gimmicks. i can’t say no to new products. like, gotta have it RIGHT NOW kind of girl.

  • Amy

    I’ll be there with heels on!!! My first thought when I saw those jeans was purple top. M&Ms are the bomb diggity. I’m currently working on my fall body and succeeding. Go me.
