Hot Tamale

Ever since Karen posted her Fall Styling tips video (I can't remember which fall video exactly, they are all good), I've been wanting to try her tip of a monochrome #ootd. While this #ootd isn't exactly monochrome (hot pink and orange aren't exactly the same color), it's close and turned out just the way I wanted.

Sweater: Zara, Palm Tree Button-Down: Thrifted (Goodwill Akron), Pencil Skirt: JCrew Factory,
Socks: Old Navy, Boots: SheIn, Sunglasses: ReDress

I also recently placed my first order with SheIn - have you heard of it? Abby shared some shoes she had scored from them, so I thought I'd check it out. These boots were one of the pieces I kept. I sent half of my order back because of sizing issues - nothing crazy, just usual online ordering risk - definitely invest the small fee for returns if you do shop online with them. 

Good or bad, I love that SheIn offers knock-off versions of all of the super trendy designer pieces I couldn't afford when they were popular (and still can't afford). These boots are obviously based off of this Balenciaga pair that have been popular for several years. Next up on my list is a version of these Stella McCartney creepers.

Formal Wear

Another day, another Canadian Tuxedo. Why is denim on denim called a "Canadian Tuxedo", and is that rude to continue to call it that? Canadian friends, let me know! I love denim on denim, so I mean no disrespect.

Jacket: Thrifted (Goodwill Akron), TShirt: Hand-Me-Down, Jeans: JCrew, Slides: Target,

We have tomorrow off in honor of Veteran's Day, so posting a "casual Friday" look a day early. 

Hope you all have a great weekend, and take some time to reflect on everything you are grateful for (some of which is most likely thanks to a Veteran). That's my plan for the weekend.

Fly Away

It's started too cool off around these parts, which means sweater weather is upon us!

Sweater: Hand-Me-Down, Jumper: Thrifted, Boots: SheIn, Socks: Gabriel Brothers,

A few weeks back, I volunteered to be in a photoshoot for the upcoming season of the Cleveland Flea. Since it was a holiday-themed shoot, we were asked to wear cozy clothes, and I wore this. Too bad it was about 80 that day. Thankfully, I thought better of wearing my tights and packed them in my bag, in case they were needed later in the day (they weren't). At the time, the thought of the upcoming holiday season gave me anxiety, but now I'm rather looking forward to it, especially bundling Harvey up in his cozy winter clothes!

Smells Like Teen Spirit

The last weekend of my maternity leave, Harvey and I joined my mom for a night away up on Lake Erie. My favorite part of a last minute getaway (besides the "getaway" part)? The last minute packing: i.e. throw a bunch of random clothes in a bag. I didn't plan it, but was pleasantly surprised when I was able to pull together this accidental 90s grunge #ootd with minimal effort.

Tshirt: Target, Jeans: Swapped, High Tops: Vans via Zumiez, Flannel: Hand-me-Down,

Speaking of "teen spirit": acne - postpartum or 30s related? I haven't had it this bad since puberty. What gives? Thankfully, it's mostly cleared up now thanks to a miracle spot treatment my mom gave me.
