Hello, fall!

Fall is officially here and I'm trying to embrace it as much as I can. You see, I don't want to be a downer, but to me cold weather means having my asthma inhaler handy at all times, extremely dry skin and cold sores, having a runny nose (the whole time!), oh, and my mom passed away in fall, so unfortunately I think more about her and how much I miss her during this season. However, as I told you before, fall and winter in the States are all about celebrating (Halloween, Thanksgiving, the Holidays), so I'm trying to focus on its perks rather than its drawbacks ;).

So, here's my first outfit post in fall; it doesn't look too autumn-y because here is SoCal temperatures are still above the 90sF (30C)! But anyway, I really like this dress, but after I bought it, I realized the upper part looks like a cheerleader costume. What draws me to put it on is the fact that it's covered in white sheep :p and in my opinion, anything that has sheep on is worth wearing! Our youngest niece turned 8 years old on Sunday, so I thought her birthday party was the perfect occasion to wear it.

This dress is from Objecto (Argentina), which no longer exists :(. However, its designer has created a new brand called Chiche, which is pretty much the same thing.

Yeah, I don't know what I'm doing here ... Just wanted to show you how high these wedges are :/. It took me a while to get used to them. I bought them online on a special offer (3 pairs of shoes for the price of 1), no returns; since I couldn't exchange them, I'm wearing them whenever we don't need to do much walking.

My idea was to fix my hair in two big buns to complete the outfit, but I didn't have time. I was hurrying till the last minute to finish baking these babies :p. This was my first experience using yeast, so I didn't know how these garlic cheese bread sticks were going to come out. My first yeast + warm water mix didn't work out, but I googled "how to use yeast" and followed those instructions instead; lucky me, that link totally saved me! And my two batches of bread sticks were a complete success, yay! :D

One more thing, I wanted to tell you that Monday was a great day! 1) I finally got some parts I needed to start using my sewing machine and I'm slowly figuring out how to start using it; 2) David started his online classes (he's studying anthropology); and 3) they called me from the City to have a job interview to fill a part-time position at the library I'm volunteering!!! Hurray!!!! :D I don't want to get too excited, but this is huge to me, guys! I know it's just an appointment to have an interview (that won't take place till mid October!), but I am beyond happy. I need to get this job! :D Fingers crossed.

Hope you've started this week with a huge smile, too! ;D

Love that dress on you. I'm finally learning not to buy heels even if they are super cute. I can't walk in them so what's the point. I have a couple of shoes with small heals. Like training wheels for me.
