thank Goodness it is Friday!

Ugh this week has felt like it has dragged on forever, anyone else feel that way? And what makes this weekend, even better, it is a three day weekend, yippee!!
 I noticed on Wednesday I dropped down in a few followers and that makes me sad. I don't know why it does, has anyone else had that happen to them? 
What big plans do you have for this weekend? Anything special? I'd love to hear about it. Tomorrow I'm going hiking with a friend and my two dogs, they really love to hike and I love how much energy they burn off doing it and then the rest of the day is up in the air. Sunday, Sean and I are going apple picking. I took him last year and we had so much fun we will make it an annual tradition. He has been excited about going again for awhile. And Monday, sleep in definitely since it is a holiday, and no work for me! Ok onto this week's Friday Fancies. I wore a blazer to work yesterday actually, with skirts and boots and a striped top underneath. See?





 I might start posting more outfits that I wear on a regular basis, what do you think of that?


This is my Friday Fancies out for you all this week. Enjoy!
 I love my personalized Friday Fancies sign, thank you again Alison! You are the bomb dot com!

I had that happen a few months ago, but maybe people are just deleting their blogs all together?! I'm still a loyal follower :)

LOVE your outfit! I wish I could wear boots, but my calves are too big :( blah.

It sounds like you have a great weekend ahead of you!!

Lauren said...

Cuuuute! Love the outfit!

I think it's easy to lose followers especially when you do a lot of blog hops etc (not sure if you do). But people just join so you'll join theirs when really you don't have much in common... and after awhile you have to weed out the people you don't really read that much. Oh well, chances are those people never commented or contributed anyway!

Jess said...

Girl those boots are the cutest! And you are hiking today? I am so jealous! I bet the weather will be gorgeous for it! Don't worry so much about your followers... You still have like 4 times more than I do! Plus I know I have readers who don't necessarily "Follow Publicly" so its all good! Hope you have a great weekend!

Whitney Ellen said...

Totally loving that outfit... Those boots are amazing!!

Ashley said...

It's Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend :) Cute outfit!

Ashley said...

Love that outfit, girlie! I need to get a cute blazer to wear in the classroom because every one that I'm seeing is so chic and perfect for work! I'm loving those flats, too. And don't worry about the drop in followers- you have so many people who love to read your blog!

Jenna said...

I absolutely love your blazer outfit! You are really pulling it off well! I've never tried wearing a blazer before, but I think I'd like to :)

I feel the same way when I notice a drop in followers, but don't worry about it! It happens to everyone, and you have almost 300 followers who LOVE to read your blog!

Ruthie Hart said...

Sounds like a fun weekend! Sometimes I wish I could take Ernie on long walks and hikes but he gets tired after 10 minutes of a regular walk! lol

Sorren said...

Don't worry, I've totally been there and it does leave you wondering what you did wrong, but it happens to everyone!

I love this outfit and that striped shirt has me drooling!

That is such a cute outfit! We're going apple picking at some point, not this weekend, but I'm hoping next weekend. I can't wait!

Stephanie said...

Love your outfit yesterday...so cute! That's happened to me before (dropping down followers) and I don't know why or what does it. We still love ya!

Laura said...

Happy Weekend!!! Yay!! Love the boots...so fun to be able to pull out the fall wardrobe!!

Simply LKJ said...

Love the outfits! I quit looking at the numbers...they go up, they go down, reasons unknown. For me it's more about the few I've had the opportunity to establish fun relationships with (you included!!).

birdie to be said...

That is sad! Why would someone do that?!!? Dont worry, your blog is fabulous and I love being your follower! Love your outfit and line up today! Xo

Sarah said...

You're lucky! I'm jealous you get Monday off. Just a regular old weekend for me. But, I'm excited because we're going to the pumpkin patch this weekend! I haven't gone to an actual pumpkin patch probably since I was in middle school! Haha! Hope you have an awesome time apple picking! Can't wait to hear about it! :)

Mandee said...

I love the outfit post! You have way more followers than me and tons of commenters so don't worry about losing followers, its probably just because they have different interests than you and nothing personal!

Lia Joy @ life is aMAYESing said...

Love the outfit you put together!! I also paired a striped top with a soild blazer in my outfit for today' Friday's Fancies :) Great minds think alike!!

Have a great weekend, Meg!

Natalie said...

Cute outfit! No big plans for this weekend...but those can be the best. Have a great weekend!

Hilliary@ Happily Ever Healthy said...

Cute outfit btw!! And I love your Friday's Fancies!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Karen said...

I lost followers too but I tell myself they just quit blogging and try not to take it personally. Love the outfit, you should definitely do more fashion posts. I need to go shopping because the 2 posts I did, I am out of outfits!

{av} | {long distance loving} said...

Happy Friday, Meg! So happy to see you linking up for Friday's Fancies :) I love the stripes in your real outfit and your dreamy one! It looks so put-together and polished! Enjoy your long weekend...I'm JEALOUS! And I'll echo Karen's comments: it takes a lot to "unfollow" a person, so I try to think the ones I do lose are because they stopped blogging! You're not alone though! xoxo {av}

p.s. be sure you've gotten all your entries in for my Lilly P giveaway!

sherri lynn said...

yes I feel like this week has dragged on too! Your outfit is super cute, and so is the one you put together for Friday's fancies. Have a great time hiking and apple picking this weekend! :)

Kaysie said...

Maybe we should think of it more in terms of "trimming the fat?" who knows. 200 something is still a good number though ;) sometimes I feel like I'm blogging to the quiet fields.
(that's a reference that I just made up, intending to mean that sometimes I feel no audience at all. Hopefully you weren't like "wth is she talking about" haha)

amy b.s. said...

great jacket!

Alexa said...

Love your fancies and your sign. Haha. Yep, we've had followers leave us...so sad. I feel like it's a breakup I swear. But you'll get new ones! :)

TC30s said...

I love the blazer! But your whole outfit looks cute. I still need to go apple picking...have an awesome one!

Fashion Meets Food said...

Cute outfit doll!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

Julie said...

I get sad too when I lose a follower...it happens to everyone so don't worry about it too much :)
And at the risk of sounding really stupid, what holiday is on Monday!? I've heard of everyone having the day off but have no clue what for! That's awesome though, enjoy your long weekend!

Ashlyn said...

i know exactly what you mean about losing followers. but i also get frustrated when i have alot of people stop by the blog, but they don't comment. i am trying to not let it bother me.

but i hope you have a great weekend hiking. its the perfect weather for it here. not too hot & just the right amount of chilliness!:)

& i love your outfit. i love pairing up a black blazer with jeans!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Very cute outfit! Love the boots :) I've been trying to find more boots this fall that I like...so hard to find ones that fit just right!
I totally forgot it is a holiday weekend! I think there is work to be done, so I might not be able to take advantage of it though :(
I have noticed I have lost followers before. Even though I have no idea who, I always wonder why. It could always be something like they deleted their account or something I suppose.
I hope you have a wonderful long weekend! xo

Kristin said...

TGIF is right! Love that jacket lady!

Faith said...

how cute!!! love those shoes and the bright pops of color.

Susan said...

Meg I love your outfit post! It's so cute!! I want to wear that to work :) And of course I love your Friday's Fancies. Those tb flats are some I've wanted forever. I love that blazer too! Have a fabulous weekend!! Relax and enjoy :)

amy grace said...

Cute!! We don't have off on Monday. Totally lame!! (as far as followers go I've got less than 40 so I've not noticed any rise in that for a while) Might have dropped if you required being a follower for a giveaway and maybe people were only following for that? (not sure if you did or not) Have a great weekend!!

REBrown said...

I'm soooo glad this week is over. It seemed really long for me too.

I'll be doing a whole lot of nothing this weekend!

Tonia @ TheGunnySack.com said...

Sorry you dropped a few followers but don't sweat it you will gain some more in on time! I love the outfit. I helped a family member move on Friday, an out of town wedding on Saturday and church and a birthday party today!

siddathornton said...

i love this bright, preppy look!

Ashley said...

Love your boots! So cute!

Newlymeds said...

I say yes to more outfit postings and I am sorry about the followers. It has happened to me too and it too made me sad. xx

Shannon said...

Loving your outfit!

Danielle said...

I love your the color of your blazer with your striped shirt! It's a great combo.

Nikki said...

Yay for skirts and boots. Unfortunately we need tights here too. It's already too cold :(

P.S. I'm going to be talking about the dreary weather until July. Bear with me.

BeckyJo606 said...

Such a cute outfit! I love it! I hope you had a good weekend! I know mine was just what the doctor ordered :)

Amanda said...

You look so cute! I hope you had a good weekend! :) I love that last outfit too, definitely something that I would wear!
