Hello and a good day to you, dearies! Today is going to be a lovely, calm Saturday, with a birthday party to go to, and a nice warm house to come home to. I love days like today, where you can sit back and relax. It seems like everything lately has been a hustle and bustle of business. I will be SO happy when Thanksgiving arrives this next week. Speaking of Thanksgiving and fall, here is a very autumnal outfit I wore just a few weeks ago for Church.
So, to explain the outfit. I actually wore this to a wedding the day before, and since I liked it so much, I decided to wear it to Church as well. I wanted to wear tights, but I couldn’t just have some rust colored tights on the bottom, and no rust-colored-anything on top, so I added my favorite wool cardigan to the outfit. I wasn’t sure of it at first, but it started looking nicer and nicer the more I thought of changing to something else, so I stuck with it. The shoes are my highest pair of heels, which I don’t get to wear very often, so I took the liberty of wearing them with this outfit since they coordinated better than anything else. Oh, and a coat (this one is actually from… Costco… It’s by Michael Kors) is always nice to have.

So, I was having a discussion with my family this morning around the subject of the word cute. Typically when I think of using the word cute, I think of babies, puppies, cute clothes, etc. But what we were discussing was the (rather tragic, in my opinion) use of the word to describe one’s peers of the opposite sex. i.e. “that girl/guy is cute”. Personally, I think using the word cute to describe any person, other than a baby, or perhaps a girl calling another girl cute on account of her outfit, is objectifying the person, and diminishing their person-hood. But I wanted to know what you all think! If you knew a guy said you were “cute” would you like that, or would you consider it as being offensive? On the other hand, would you call a guy “cute”? Would you describe that young man as being manly, if you also called him cute?
