Shaggy Baby

Shaggy Baby

I admit it. I totally coveted this sweater from the day I saw it at Free People. I watched it, visited it, knew I absolutely had to have it. However, I never spend full price on anything, especially when it’s that expensive. It’s just a sweater. I could wait. And wait I did. Finally — 50% off! Woohoo! Mine! Since the sweater itself is such a statement I chose funky, but all black to wear with it so as not to overpower its awesomeness. Like it?

Happy Birthday!

So it’s taken me a week, but this is what I wore to supper the night of my birthday. What number you ask? I’ll never tell. I have recently become a little obsessed with Urban Outfitters. They have an amazing selection of oversized, asymmetrical sweaters and tops and I want one of each! I snatched this baby up a couple of weeks ago and saved it to wear on my birthday with these beyond awesome Rag & Bone teal suede pants that I’ve been saving for a super long time! It’s kind of a personal tradition of mine to wear something new and special on my birthday. Do any of you do things like this?

Fall For It

The second the temperature drops the tiniest little bit I get completely psyched for fall. I feel more like myself in dark colours and boots. I started out getting dressed this evening in much lighter coloured garb. I couldn’t do it. I kept looking in the mirror and wondering who was staring back at me. I’ve realized that you should stay true to who you are — doesn’t only apply to outfits. If you’re not comfortable in an outfit don’t wear it out. More importantly, don’t buy it. Only spend your money on pieces that call to you and make you feel awesome!

Missed You!

Hi everyone. Sorry I was missing for a few days there! Life just gets in the way sometimes. All weekend I kept thinking I was going to have a chance to sit down and blog but it simply didn’t happen. All fun events though (other than having to work) so good stuff. Anyway… I did have a few chances to shoot some pictures. I love this track pant trend! Have I said that? These are faux leather. I love them, but they are a little warm so I figured I’d get a wear in on a nice cool evening. The weather here is starting to heat up so there may not be many more opportunities. I wore them with one of the first tops I ever bought in the Nordstrom Savvy department. My how far I’ve come. It was too wet and chilly to wear open toe shoes so I took out these platform booties. I’ve had them for years but I still love them. They also provide some nice height which I am not privy to by birth. Enjoy!
