Doily. <+ a giveaway>
I've had this lace dress for three months now. Just dying to break it out. Isn't that the worst? I mean great that we had a true summer with hot temps and cut off shorts but it's always so hard to hang onto a purchase. Well, it is for me at least...and I know you fashionistas reading this can relate on some level. #fallcravings
I think it needs a belt, tho. Goals for my next wear I suppose. It's roomy and feminine and I love the quality of the lace for the whopping $37 I spent. I mean...yeah, you should buy it!
I'm into mixing browns and blacks lately, too. Skeptical of how it would look on camera at first but I am loving the outcome. Neutrals just work together you know?
P/S If you don't have trusty, black suede pumps...these are $49. No brainer.
Finally, every good Fall wardrobe needs two things: 1. a classic trench. Mine just happens to be rain proof, too. It's on sale for $50! and 2. This bag. It's this season's "it bag," just a lick less expensive than the real thing.
Shop my outfit below...but wait...there's a giveaway today, too! Scroll down!
Are you ready? I'm giving away my exact bag to one of you dear readers! Happy Fall! <shipping to U.S. residents only> Good luck!
When people talk about Spring. I shrug. I dunno. Florals + me = no bueno. I’ve never been into ultra fem looks. I mean, I get it…they look lovely on many women, my friends even! Just not on me. I guess I consider myself more of a boot stomper. A ripped denim wearer. No frills. You get what you get.
While my wardrobe has decidedly taken a turn for neutrals; I still have my color moments and well, winter is still in the building if you live in Chicago. So…we back to sweaters. Does this green count as a neutral because I lurve it! I cannot tell you how many DMs and comments I received when I posted on IG so here are the Q+A’s:
Hi! Popping in to say, “I’m still alive!” Busy work weeks will do that to you! All that being said, I have some really fun pieces to share starting with this balloon sleeve top. I am somewhat of a late bloomer when it comes to online shopping destinations. I know what I like and I am loyal. Stumbling upon Vici was a happy accident. Thank you Instagram gods.
I punctuate every outfit I put together with shoes. It’s always the frosting on the proverbial fashion cake. I’m just a shoe girl and it’s always been that way.
It’s also true that I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect red boot for what seems like my entire life. An exaggeration, I assure you but it feels that way. It’s always when you’re not looking that you find exactly what you need. Match that with a budget freeze you have yourself the perfect problem. Until now…
Solopreneur. Mompreneur. Entrepreneur. They all point to the same title but what does it mean for you as you contemplate this roller coaster of a journey? I can sum it up in two words: wildly exhausting. Wild and exhausting don’t always have to have a negative connotation. I was a wild 20-something which = I had a heck of a lot of fun! Traveling Europe was exhausting which = fulfilling, enriching, my brain exploded with an appreciation for a different culture.
In case you don’t live in the Midwest, it is f-f-f-f-freezing here. Dressing cute is still a priority but warmth is everything and while I never thought I would be a pullover girl, I can tell you I have officially converted this week! And the best news of all is that the one I am wearing is a mere $20! You cannot beat that!
It recently dawned on me that it’s been ages since I last did an outfit post. I guess life has been busy! Trust me, I’ve been wearing clothes. I swear!
You may have your NYE outfit picked out. Where are my procrastinators out there?
It’s almost too good to be true…a rare Monday post. I used to be so diligent!
I’ve recovered, and I 100% mean “recovered”, from a busy weekend…ready to tackle Monday. This is what it felt like before when work wasn’t as busy and I was actually productive during the work week. It feels great!
