Currently – October 2017

Currently – October 2017


I’m linking up today with Anne at In Residence and Dana at Something Good for this month’s Currently!

On this first week of October 2017, I am currently…

Styling:  outfits from the Get Your Pretty On (GYPO) Fall Style Challenge.  These challenges are always a lot of fun and incredibly helpful.  They’ve taught me how to shop wisely AND how to stay on trend!  Here are a few of my favorite outfits so far.  (The Fall Work Wear Capsule is available now!  Yes, that’s an affiliate link!)


Saving:  time and money by using Prep Dish.  Prep Dish provides weekly meal plans and more importantly, well-organized instructions for preparing the meals.  Watch for a full review of my experience with Prep Dish REALLY soon!



Searching:  for Christmas gift ideas.  One of the items on my Autumn Adventures list is to enjoy Christmas shopping by doing it earlier.  If I want hand-crafted gifts, for instance, I know I need to get them ordered soon.  (I’m looking at you, Etsy!)


Picking:  books I want to read and restaurants I want to try.  I’m currently reading The War that Saved My Life, another fantastic recommendation by Modern Mrs. Darcy.

Making:  time for a special treat!  I’m treating myself to an afternoon out tomorrow!  Books and food MIGHT be involved!  Stay tuned for all the details!

What are YOU currently up to!  Leave me a comment and let me know!


Top Ten Posts for 2016 – Most Popular

Top Ten Posts for 2016 – Most Popular

What a fun year here at OutAndBack!  Thank you for stopping by, reading a while, and cheering me on!  Here are the ten most popular posts for 2016 (based on number of views).

1.  Electric Pressure Cooker – YES!  My initial foray into the world of electric pressure cookers.  I started with the Farberware model; here’s what I thought of it.  (Coming soon:  a post comparing this to the Instant Pot that I purchased later.)


2.  Michael Ann’s Kitchen  Day One of the Write 31 Days Challenge.  Welcome to my kitchen!  Let me show you around!  You’ll find the complete list of posts in this series here.


3.  One Carly, Three Ways  LuLaRoe posts have been VERY popular this year!  LuLaRoe fans abound, and for good reason!  If you’ve not succumbed to the LuLaRoe world yet, Carly is one of their wonderful dresses.


4.  Style Perspectives: How Would YOU Wear It?  I linked up with the fabulous ladies at The Blended Blog for this one.  We styled a blazer, tank/t-shirt, and jeans.  Easy peasy and FUN!


5.  Currently – December 2016  Each month I link up with Anne at In Residence for her “Currently” posts.  The topics change every month.  This is a fun post to write AND a fun way to quickly check out bloggers I don’t know.  The variety of responses each month always amazes me!  Beautiful Thomasville, Georgia featured prominently in this “Currently” post.


6.  In the Beginning  This was Day 2 of Michael Ann’s Kitchen, my response to the Write 31 Days blogging challenge.  On this day I shared what Mama taught me about being a successful cook.  She knew what she was talking about!  (Do you suppose my kids will ever say that about me?!?)


7.  Capes!  This post is nearly a year old now, and it’s cape season again!  Check ’em out and see what you think!  (I like THIS cape post a lot better!)


8.  The Letter R and the Elephant  Yes!  THIS is one of my favorite posts of the year!  Funny, funny story!


9.  Cozy Fashion for the Holidays  LuLaRoe fashion hits the Top 10 again!  This time I styled LuLaRoe leggings and linked up (again) with The Blended Blog.


10.  Fall Fashion Find: A Casual Dress  Wow!  Another fashion post and another link-up with The Blended Blog!


So, I’m curious.  Did YOUR favorite post(s) make the top ten?!?  Leave a comment and let me know!  I plan to list MY favorite posts tomorrow, and most of them ARE NOT on today’s list!  (You KNOW you’ll need to come back tomorrow, right?!?  HOW will you ever sleep tonight?!?)






Fall Fashion Find: A Casual Dress

Fall Fashion Find: A Casual Dress

Fall fashion is my favorite!  And the weather here in Coastal Georgia is FINALLY cooperating with the calendar!  Hooray!  Today I’m sharing a great fall fashion find, an affordable, comfortable dress from Old Navy.

I’m 5’6″, and a lot of Old Navy’s dresses are too short for me to wear as a dress.  I have to wear them as a tunic instead.  But this dress is JUST the right length for me!  PLUS it’s an A-line swing dress!  That means it’s forgiving and works well for multiple body shapes.

With the wine colored dress I’m wearing a Land’s End scarf, Target tights, and Payless boots.  This outfit is perfect for

Get Your Pretty On!

Get Your Pretty On!

It’s the most wonderful FASHION time of the year!  Am I right, or am I right?!?  If you’re wanting to update your wardrobe and (A) need some help doing it or (B) want to have a lot of fun while doing it, I happily recommend the Get Your Pretty On Fall Style Challenge!

Click here to read all about it!

I’ve done several of these challenges, and I absolutely love them.  They taught me how to:

  • put together outfits that are trendy AND appropriate for my age
  • shop wisely.  (If I can’t style a piece of clothing at least 3 ways, I don’t buy it.)
  • accessorize confidently with a few, fun, affordable pieces.

PLUS I made a lot of great fashion friends with whom I’m still in touch!  (From all over the place, y’all!)

This challenge works well for all ages and body types.  You can spend as much or as little as you like on the clothes.

Click the link above to see how it all works!  Here are a few photos of my outfits from a previous fall challenge.
