Hi Friends. If you saw my Fall Haul, you would recognize this skirt from that video. The first time I wore this skirt was for this photo. It is so soft and comfortable. I love it when I find great items built to last. I went thrifting a few weeks ago and found this super cute blazer, it is a BCGB Tuxedo blazer, the sleeves are knit which is so comfortable. I have been looking for a black blazer for a while, I love how this one is different and will add some texture to an outfit.

Happy Tuesday, today is a little bit of torture for me. Yesterday was a holiday, and now getting back into the swing of things is always hard. Last night I stayed up much later than I should have. So I am feeling it today. All and all, lets make the most of it!

Today I wanted to share this simple outfit with you. If you are looking to make your outfit a little more polished, a long cardigan is the best way to do it in the fall. It’s so easy, all you have to do is put on one sleeve at a time ūüôā Booties help too, but if all you have is flats- go with it!!!

Breaking Fashion Rules

Today I am throwing fashion rules out the window! Some fashion rules are old, outdated and, doesn’t make sense, but for some reason I am compelled to follow them. We all know the saying don’t wear white after Labor Day, we shouldn’t mix prints, and be sure to take one accessory off before you leave the house. Today, I am saying so what to the rules.

Recently, I heard about a challenge call Try-day Friday, created by Dia&Co., where Friday’s they wear something to the office they typically wouldn’t wear. The idea is to face your fashion fears. I love this concept because we can all use a little push every now and then.

If I am honest, ignoring the rules did make me uncomfortable, when I wore these jeans, I kept thinking everyone is looking at me because I am wearing white after Labor Day? Once I realize I’m doubting my outfit choice, I tell myself, “it is what it is,” and I hold my head high and let it go. I must have liked the outfit at some point and fashion is not that deep to care about what other people think about my outfit.

I wanted to wear these pants (in the fall) because I found them at the end of the season and I just loved them. Apparently, they are mom jeans, who would have thunk mom jeans are in style lol. They are really comfortable, because they have the perfect amount of room and they are high waisted, which are my favorite.

Happy Thursday! I have been under the weather lately, which is never fun. I am giving myself a few pats on the back to get this post up today. It took every ounce of strength to sit up and type this. Ok, I know that is slightly dramatic, but I really don’t feel well. What do you like to do when you are not feeling your best?

Welcome to October! This is the month were I put away my summer clothes and break out my fall (and winter) clothes. That means it is not time to break out the high boots, and I am so excited about it. In the next couple of weeks Frank and I will be making our bi-annual shopping trip. I am making a list of all the things I will need for this season. I am such a nerd about how much I love planning and organizing my closet.

I have been wanting to work out for about a week now! I have been sick back to back and it kicked my butt, knocking me off my game. Tomorrow I should have time to go to they gym and I am going to go take a run which I am excited about it.

You may think I live in Old Navy, I do, but only because they have great things that are always on sale. I found this workout top in the spring for under $10. It is very comfortable, I love how it has a loose fit. I love wearing all back especially going to the gym. It makes working out chic.
