Music, Books, Miles, and Looks of September


You Make It Real by James Morrison: This song played at the end of the season premier of Brothers & Sisters. I think I have listened to it about 30 times since I bought it on Tuesday night. No joke. I think his voice is amazing and the lyrics are beautiful.

Uncharted by Sara Bareilles: I bought her new album last month - the whole album is great but this is one of my favorites. I get to see her in concert in November and can't wait! I think she's so talented!1


The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O'Farrell: This was the September book for my local book club. I thought it was an interesting read and was pretty easy to get into. There were no chapters, though, which am not used to!

Under this Unbroken Sky: Review can be found here.

Heart with Joy by Steve Cushman: I'll be reviewing this YA book next week

** Very, very slow month for reading for me. My schedule is jam-packed these days, so reading has taken a back seat!


I ran 122 miles in September. I am happy with this number! The first half of the month was spent building up to my peak 20 mile training run, the second half of the month was all about tapering. 122 is a good, solid number.


Excuse the horrible self-photo taken with my blackberry... This is my favorite outfit for the month of September. I got the top and cardigan at Banana Republic for 1/2 off, which was quite the deal. You can't really tell in the photo, but the cardigan has an ombre look to it which makes it a little more interesting. I wore this outfit with red flats.

This isn't an outfit, but this is a picture of the boots my friend helped me pick out. I wore them with skinny jeans for the first time last week and really like how the outfit looked.

Those boots are so cute! Where did you get them? I've been having a hard time finding a cute pair of boots form for my core wardrobe... I'm so picky!

Amber said...

I LOVED this song when I heard it on Brothers & Sisters too but didn't know what it was called!

Still loving those boots, too. They are just SO NICE!

Yup, 122 is a nice, round number :D Mine was actually 120.7 or something silly, but let's forget about that .7! Lol. Though, that is still an extremely HIGH number for what I used to run!

James Morrison has such a wonderful, soulful voice! "Wonderful World" is a great one too. And those boots are lovely :)

Mandy said...

Marlys said...

Wow, I love the boots! Bravo on the miles ran in Sept! Next week at this time you'll be on the West Coast - so excited for you!

Nora said...

122 miles (to me) is more than a good solid number. It freakin' rocks ;-)

Love the boots + the cardigan outfit. Very cute. Very you.

Happy October/can't believe it's here already!

Everytime you people show pictures and talk of fall clothes...I ache. I yearn.

It's supposed to finally start cooling down today (say's our jackass weather man) It's going to be 99!

You know how some men yell at the tv during football games? I yell at the tv during our weather report.

But on a positive note -- I. LOVE. That. Outfit. And boots! You look great! Your hair has gotten long!!!

Those boots are gorgeous! Where did you get them from?

Love the boots!

Love the BR outfit. And knowing that you wore it with red flats makes it even more awesome. I need to get up to the city soon and do some shopping!

Um, and I think you might have run more miles in the past month than I drove. Crazy!

Listening to the song now, and it is great!! Also, I LOVE those boots! I need to get a pair like that in both brown and black. I love that they are flats.

Lauren @ Sassy Molassy said...

Love that James Morrison song! Those boots are super cute. I love the intyce steve madden ones which look pretty similar to these. I'd love to buy another pair of boots this fall, but not sure it's in the budget. :) said...

I want those boots! I am a book addict and tend to fall in love with each and everyone one of mine. What a cool blog. I'll be back.
