I need to start out by apologizing for the glare in these photos. I have been using a smaller camera which I use for traveling, for these blog posts and I am getting alot of glare. These would have been taken outside, which sometimes help the glare but...colder. We have alot of windows in our home, therefore~lots of glare. I hope to find time to get my good camera to the camera doctor, soon.

It was fall break for Danielle over the weekend & Monday and Tuesday. It was really good to have her home. One of her request prior to coming home was a Halloween dinner. You would think that at ages 24, 19 & 15 I would be able to stop the tradition of a Halloween dinner but.....(see below)
The table is waiting for the guests.
We had a great time! Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

I have to admit I didn't do well on our big move to Wisconsin from Indiana, now just over 6 years ago. I'm not a cold feathered friend. This bird likes the south. But, one thing that I have to say is that we have beautiful blue skies here, alot. It can be one of the coldest winter days and the skies will be the most beautiful color of blue.
Goofing around with my daughter photographing me. This picture does show the arms nice on the Stella top.

Yes, I have fallen for Sami! I just love the Sami jacket from one of the clothing lines that I sell, kikaPaprika. The Sami jacket is a military inspiration and on trend for the fall. I wore this outfit to a recent kika show and had many compliments.

When trying to think of a name for this blog, it caused alot of laughs. I asked my daughter, Danielle, what she thought would be a good name. Here was some of our ideas~"Big Red" (which is a drink in the south and then she said "that makes it sound like your big"), Uneven, since I was trying a look with the uneven shirt (which I had saw in a magazine), "Pop the Red" and the list goes on.
The Carrie jacket by kikaPaprika is a blazer inspiration (collar & pockets). If you loved the "Addy", you are sure to like this jacket, as well.
When wearing a larger size shirt or sweater on the top, pair it with something tighter on the bottom. If you wear loose bottoms, wear a tighter top.
I am wearing a custom JHilburn shirt (the men's line that I sell) in charcoal and gave it a try on the uneven tucked shirt. I don't think the uneven tuck is my style. Fun to try! I do like the grey for a softer contrast verses white or black.

Would you wear the uneven shirt?
