double trouble

Today, I accompanied one of my friends to try on wedding dresses at the nearest large bridal shop - which happens to be the one where C. works! We had a great time helping our friend and eating a delicious lunch, then strolling around by the river before I headed back to campus to teach my evening class.

I tried some tone-on-tone orange layering for a sunny fall day, and C. kept it simple and classy with this beautiful scarf.

Across the street from the bridal shop is a DSW (I swear I did not know this when I volunteered for the trip!) and I picked up some great fall boots as well as these awesomely high heels.

They are so librarian sexy I can barely stand it. And thanks to the wide heel and padding, they are surprisingly comfortable. Shoe happiness!

Thanks for the great afternoon, C.! You make everything way more fun.
