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 🙂 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 Some fashion rules are old, outdated and, doesn’t make sense, but for some reason I am compelled to follow them.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.

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.

Guys, I am so sick of being sick. I think I told you last week I was under the weather. It’s like as soon as I get over having a cough, I now have a sinus issue. Honestly, I think today was the most normal I felt in two week. I’m so over it.

On a brighter note, we still are having war weather even though it is officially fall. How does it feel? It’s like a dream to me. I am so dramatic I know. What did you all do over the weekend?

Outfit story: I have had this jacket since college. I wear if often and I still love it as much as I did when I first purchased. This shirt is from the Gap quite some years ago, I just recently started appreciating it for how great it is! It’s so warm and comfy. Here is the kicker. I found these pants from the thrift store! Do you all shop at the thrift store? I have since I was a tiny little girl. You can find really good deals. The day I got these pants, they were having a buy 2 get one free sale, I participated.

Casual Wear

This is by far one of my favorites outfits I have worn in some time. I love how comfortable it is! On the weekends I spend much of my time running errands and getting stuff done! One of my favorite trends right now is the athleisure trend. I love it. I am a huge sweatpants and hoodie girl. I played sports all throughout high school and I love to be comfortable. Sneakers… give me life! I believe I may have mentioned before, I have been having foot problems and since I have been wearing sneakers more, my foot have gotten 90% better!

I hope you all liked my photo shoot. I took it specifically for my birthday 🙂 While searching for something fun to wear, I found this jumper at a super cute boutique here in Maryland called blush boutique. If you are looking for something sparkly this season and you don’t live in the Maryland area you can order the same jumper here.
