Friday {Five}

Navy blue has always been one of my favorite colors.  My room actually used to be painted navy blue & I loved the soothing atmosphere it created.
When I was on the treadmill today, circulating my thoughts, it hit me like a ton of bricks.
I really need a navy blue sofa.

I seriously don't know what to think about this.
You've probably seen this photo making its way around Pinterest.
Do you congratulate the parents of these kiddos for a costume well done or shake your head in disapproval? (By the way, I just learned that the "smh" thing means "shaking my head."  I never knew why people would put those letters at the end of a tweet or Facebook post.)
All I can say is ....smh.

Brandon has been in Raleigh, NC all week for business, but is on his way back to Charleston right now.
To celebrate him being back ... and well, to celebrate that it's a day that ends in "y," we're going to our favorite restaurant, O-ku.

Until then, then is how my afternoon is looking...

I got off work a little early, so I was able to come home & enjoy this day the way any cold & dreary day should be treated... my robe and slippers, with a candle lit and Real Housewives on in the background.

Here are two OOTDs from yesterday and today.
Vest: J. Crew, Black Knit Top: Banana Republic, Jeggings: Similar here, Flats: Tory Burch

Sweater: Banana Republic, Scarf: TJ Maxx find, Jeggings: Similar here, Wedges: Similar wedge style Tory Burch

This weekend, we are going to Beaufort to attend their rotary club's oyster roast.  Brandon's mom plays a very active role in their rotary.  Personally, I can't think of a better way to give back to the community than to enjoy oysters!

I know oysters aren't for everyone, but these events are something I look forward to every year when there starts to be a chill in the air.  All of us Lowcountry folks take our oyster roasts pretty seriously!  I absolutely love the taste & the atmosphere -when everyone gathers around a table chucking away!
