Resurrection: Tucker in Summery Fall

First - to anyone who cannot view my pictures I just don't know what to tell you.  I've not changed any settings (I don't even know what that means) and I put a question up at the blogger/google forum so someone there said they're looking into it.  I've had 5 or 6 of you report you can't see the pictures and it makes me sad!  Click on each one and it will blow up in a separate window.  Other than that I'm stumped!

Okay.  Now I'm so curious as to what your weather is like right now.  Is anyone else having crazy weather?  It was 95 degrees yesterday in SoCal.  (In fact as I type this it's still 80 degrees and it's almost 10pm.)  Now this is not entirely uncustomary for this time of year, however after the very cool spring and summer we experienced I really did expect to see the outline of a true fall season.  Well scrap that idea.  And scrap trying to put together an outfit post in this weather, too.  Fur?  Uh no, that's not hap'ning! (said like Kelly aka Liam Sullivan).  I seriously think I might have had a hot flash in the afternoon while trying to don a pair of jeans!!  I don't want to leave my fur behind!

All I could think about was ice cream, weeeeeeekend, ice cream, weeeeeekend, ice cream.  Is it the weekend??  The heat's gone to my head.  Or has it? 

This is how fast the week went by for me.
And now may the weekend slow down just a tad.  Or ten.
Tucker vest (seen here), J.Crew skinny denim, Tucker tote (gift)
Oh.  And tore up hair because it's too hot for me to care.
Veiny hands (thanks for nothing heat), Nordstrom Ring, Sponge Bob Band-Aid
While grabbing for the razor I almost sliced the tip of my thumb off.
Friday?  You out there?
Oh!! Jadetribe bracelet (I'll wear it again to give a better pic),
and Tucker silk tote close-up, too.
J.Crew flats purchased 2 or 3 years ago on major sale (scour ladies, scour!!) and
resurrected during closet dive 2010.  It's a jungle in there!

And now let us walk off into that good weekend.

Any special plans for you over the next couple days?  We have some friend stuff to tend to, some potential birthday shenanigans and some house cleaning (yawwwwwn) mayhem to take care of.  May it not be aggravated!!  Remember that one?? Yikes!  Have a great one, everyone!

I did see your Halloween comment :) I didn't do Halloween this year (too close to the biggest Hindu holiday, and too much to prepare for that instead).
I live in Northern California, and it is very very pleasant here - low to mid 70's

Young at Heart said...

It's wet wet wet in London but rather mild today!!

jemina said...

Oooh your tucker vest is so pretty, and it's been pretty dreary too here in Indonesia, it's been cloudy and wet...

Wishing you a wonderful weekend

XOXO

Dawn said...

ummmm....do you remember Alberta Weather????:((((
And it is supposed to snow on Monday. Again.
Can I come visit?
I don't mind having to wear the hair up...
(or your outfits for that matter:)))))

Have a super weekend!!

Debby said...

It's been raining and cold in Boston... better than snow I guess which will be coming soon enough. I love the J. Crew flats! I am such a geek I actually get excited when I see flats... what is that? I gasp a little too, (not out loud, thankfully)! No plans for me. I hear the North End in Boston calling my name for some yummy Italian food. xo

I envy you your weather - Oslo is cold and we have already had our first frost weeks ago!
Have a lovely weekend :)

Fashion Meets Food said...

First of all cute bag. Second of all I love the fact that you can pull off Tucker clothes, because I absolutely adore the clothes but look like a frump in them. I couldn`t believe how fast this week went by either... which surprises me since I have no job usually it goes by at a turtles pace lol.

One of the boys college roomies is coming over tonight to stay the night... should be....interesting to say the least. Oh yeah and we are suppose to get some snow...ARGH

It us just now starting to look a bit like fall here in okc. I'm afraid we are going to skip fall and go straight to winter.

just a girl said...

Chicago has decided to turn on my in the last twenty four hours and it appears to very chilly outside. 32 chilly with a high of 42. Brr.

Piper (DailyDivaDish) said...

It's been really chilly in Oklahoma. Love the flats! Have a beautiful weekend.

Staley Mc said...

It just got really chilly here in the south this week, I'm not really a fan! I love this look-so cute!

Daniela said...

Here in Boston it was 30 degree the beginning of the week, now it's about 50 and raining. A lot.
Love the colors on that vest
have a good weekend!

shopgirl said...

Great outfit photos! I really like the shoe photo last!

Weather here has been pretty damp ....until yesterday, hope it will stay sunny for a little longer.

Nikki said...

Its been cooold in NY- like 30's-50's! but I'm kind of loving it!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend Carrie, and get your ice cream!!!

Anna Jane said...

i can't believe it's so hot there. it suddenly became winter in chicago...WHAT?! and boo. you look great, though, and am now sort of jealous that you get to wear sleeveless shirts. the grass is always greener...

thisgirlbeck said...

ahhhh I wish I was in sunny so-cal right now. I am currently in upstate NY and right now its cold and raining. I hate it. Its miserable type of weather and I feel like hibernating..

I especially love those flats! (Even better they were part of the closet treasury :)).

The weather's been grey and rainy, not pretty autumn, not nice hot SoCal. Just...grey...hoping for more SoCal-y sun soon!

Ms. Givens said...

Oklahoma and we are having one amazing Fall. This morning it was 33.
I have large veins in my hands as well and they protrude out even further when I am tired.
Love the dark wash denim!

Valerie said...

This heat in November after our cold front all summer is throwing me for a loop. I can't get a handle on what month it is, let alone how to dress. I also have come down with a nasty cold that has left me bedridden for the last 2 days! Ugh. But I'm still happy it's Friday. You make 95 degrees look like a breeze in this adorable outfit. I can't believe you actually put jeans on! I have a denim aversion when the weather gets above 75. Haha. And as usual, I'm loving your closet dive JCrew flats. Hope you have a great weekend, Carrie!

the chirpy bird said...

What I will say is, GOD bless the closet dive! {You never know what treasures are in there until you delve} And double GOD bless ice cream... Holy hell I need all the help I can get... The H Hills are not keeping it cute right now!

jennine said...

i looove jcrew! i think it's the catalogs that get me. but this outfit is really great... those ballet flats could really come in handy a lot!

Nikki said...

It was 70 here the other day! That's hot for us...especially in November.

I can't see your pictures lately. I don't know why they won't show up, no matter how many times I refresh. I'm sure your outfit is darling as usual.

none said...

I'm actually jealous of the weather you guys are having, it's so cold here. And I love your outfit!

Dancing Branflake said...

Love those jeans and flats! And I live in Sacramento- the weather is way too hot for November! Have an awesome weekend, gorgeous lady!

hip hip gin gin said...

Boston area was freezing earlier this week (so cold I put a sweater on the dog because I didn't want to turn on the heat yet and the poor thing could not have curled herself up any tighter), and the past couple of days it's been chilly and raining. Except for the rain I don't really mind, it's been all sweaters and boots this week, and I love it!
Those flats are adorable! Hope you have a lovely weekend!!

briannelee said...

Such a wonderful outfit! Love the vest and shoes!

Happy Friday!

Courtney Erin said...

I love your stripey top! Normally I'd be in Connecticut right now but I'm visiting family in Northern Canada and the weather is actually a little bizarre in that it's like 10 degrees warmer than it should be. But I can't complain.

Alicia said...

Wow, can't believe it's that hot in LA! It's been in the low 70's during the day in SF - which is rather warm for November! I've been pulling out my fur at night tho ;) Great JCrew flats!!

Josie said...

Carrie, I ADORE your flats, bracelet, and that lovely, lovely Tucker bag -- you lucky girl! I'm from Minnesota, where no doubt it's freezing cold, per usual, but I go to school in northern Indiana and it's currently snowing. So not the time right now -- we kind of missed fall, which was sad.

Marie a la Mode said...

lovealamode said...

It's still nice and hot in Arizona too. I for one am enjoying the extra time at the pool, and using it as an excuse to eat loads more ice cream than normal for November. There are also some potential birthday shenanigans in my weekend plans. Mixed in with some papers for school, ick.
Bisous,

The weather's been crazy in SF, too, and of course the day starts chilly and by noon I'm stripping down! Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend-I just told a friend my big plans were drinking in the bathtub!

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Your outfit's prints and colors make my eyes happy :) Thank you!

Kate said...

Ooh, at least I can see your pictures my clicking on them! Thanks for letting me know! No idea what's wrong, unless mybe your picasa album is full or something?? So bizarre! As for weather, yesterday I scraped frost off my car, and it was -2 celcius in the morning! Afternoons have been about 6-8 degrees lately. I'm wearing sweaters, scarves and tights on a daily basis, and this week switched over to my wool winter coat! I can't belieeeeve yesterday was 90 degrees for you! Crazy!

Erica said...

Good for you finding some cute flats on sale! I need a new pair myself and I just keep putting it off, hoping to find a great pair that is exorbitantly cute and inexpensive. So far, no luck!

Jess said...

95 degrees?? UGHHHH - I'm jealous! It's currently 40 degrees here and there were actually a few snow flurries this afternoon. :(

Claire Kiefer said...

I LOVE THAT TOP SO MUCH! It's so cute and looks perfect on you! You've inspired me to initiate a closet dive of my own--lord only knows what I could uncover hidden in the nooks of my (horribly messy) closet!

I'm feeling sorry for you southern Californians, cause it's dang gorgeous up here, I gotta say. I hope it cools down for you and can't wait to hear what you get yourself into this weekend--fun fun fun! XO

Oh Carrie, I love these flats! (score is right).

Absolutely love this cute outfit! The colours are all so cheerful and the flats are just perfect. The weather has been gorgeous here too... not quite short sleeve shirt warm, but much nicer than normal! Have an awesome weekend! xx

LyddieGal said...

I think it's fun that you are back to summer again - it's definitely fall in new england, we've had frost and cold and the heat is ON.

Chic on the Cheap

S.I.F. said...

It's definitely winter in Alaska, but not as bad as it could be... sticking around in the 20's so far! :)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I just got back from LA. Anticipating going I thought it would be nice weather. Wow, was I wrong. Yesterday was certainly HOT. And I was outside all day! The forecast looks better for this weekend, so hopefully it's nice. Is this really November??
Have a great weekend! xo

la franglaise said...

It's pouring down with rain in Paris today!
Love your cute bag. Bon weekend xx

style'n said...

weird carrie-I always can see your pictures...but right now I am on a slow connection (in DC) and I actually can't see them. But it could just be my computer. So strange. Anyway i will have to come back to comment on your outfit.

style'n said...

oh I can click on the pictures and see them...adorable flats and love how you rolled up the jeans to show off those adorable flats.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

It's supposed to get into the near 60's for us this weekend, which for Wisconsin in November is pretty darn good. If the snow can hold off till at least December I will be one happy girl!

heather yalin said...

Oh goodness gracious heat! My whole (mom's side) family is in your neck of the woods enjoying that heat and my cousin's wedding. Weather here is changeable. Been warm for here tho, splashes of rain, gusts of wind, sun. The usual. (I'm happy there's lots of hours of light and that it's not freezing!)

p.s. you always have the greatest shoes!!!

wow its freezing here!

Jessica said...

Oh man, I haven't checked in with you in ages. I'm a bad, bad blogger! I can't believe you're having such an incredible heat wave. I'm beyond jealous. We were spoiled with a nice October and I was convinced winter would never come. Nope. I've been scraping ice off my windshield and burying myself in a wool coat and furry scarves. Boo hiss.

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Hi, Carrie! So sorry for not being able to visit ur blog in the past two weeks or so. Ugh, I'm having major problems with the internet/laptop. They're somewhat fixed, hopefully they will both behave for awhile lol Anyway, yes, what's up w/this crazy weather?? Can't believe it reached 100 at one point last week!! I can't see the pictures either on ur post, but they did show up when I clicked on the small icons. Love the mix of patterns in ur outfit, btw:) Hope u enjoyed the weekend!
