Dooney and Burke Bag (thrifted 2013)

Hey, it's velvet time! Or at least, I am really excited about velvet being a big trend this year, I love velvet and it's so great to find it in such great fall colors like burgundy. I want velvet boots so bad but I have a feeling that may just be a pipe dream - they would get trashed up here with all of the rain and snow and slush. Bah humbug.

Lighten Up

UO Hat
Fred meyer Poncho
Isabel Marant Entoile Shirt (ebay)
Rag and Bone Leather Pants (ebay) and Shoes (thrifted)
Free People Bag (ebay)

The leather pants ride again, this time with a poncho! (Hmm, I think this might have happened before...) When I say I love this poncho, I mean I LOOOOOVE this poncho. It's one of the cheaper things I've gotten over the years, a few dollars at the local grocery store but it's so perfect with the burgundy and black ombre and it has held up so well to all of the wear from last winter, zero pills! It was warm enough to just layer over my shirt this day but most of the time I layer it over a jacket and it's pretty effortless - it's basically just a big scarf.

Time Waster

UO Hat
Old Navy Cardigan (thrifted)
J.Crew Long Sleeve Tee (thrifted) and Skirt (thrifted)
Coach Leather Bag (thrifted)
Free People Clogs (ebay)

A 100% second hand outfit today! (ahhh shoot, no it's not, I forgot about my silly hat. But by this point, I think it's down to a penny per wear so close enough? Upward inflection?) One silly thing I do when I find certain brand at the thrift store is look at their tags to see when they were produced. Old Navy is one brand that does this and I amuse myself by trying to guess what year it was made....sadly, most of the time I'm pretty spot on in my guesses so I'm not sure what that says about me. Old Navy can be fun because their older sweaters were ~amazing~ and they use to use silk and cashmere, I even remember when ON sent out a questionnaire asking people if they would rather have nicer clothes at higher prices or crappy close at low prices. (I will say, it seems like a lot of their stuff is on a upward swing, their kids clothes are awesome right now and pretty durable and the few things I have bought I've really liked.) This cardigan is from 2008 and it is in the ~amazing~ section of what ON use to be, mostly made of wool and even thought it's 8 years old, this thing is pristine!

Don't Say It

Muubaa Jacket (ebay)
AllSaints Dress (ebay)
Rick Owens Heels (ebay)
Coach Leather Bucket Bag (thrifted)

After not wearing many of my jackets during the hot part of the summer, I'm pretty excited to start wearing this one again. When I'd ordered it, I'd actually thought it was black and was a little surprised to see it was brown. The brown has ended up being really awesome, it's a rugged looking jacket and the brown seems to really work with a lot of the colors in my closet - it also helps keep outfits like this from being too dark. This shoes took some breaking in, they were SO painful the first time I wore them and yet they were so easy to walk in, they really work well with my natural stride so it was weird to have shoes that hurt and yet were easy to walk in! Since them they've become far more comfy, the only downside is that my daughter calls them Monster High shoes and now I can't un-see it.

Fall is really settling in around here. The kids are in their last week of cross country which after several weeks of after school practice/practice runs at home/races, I think we're all ready for a break - we're also really happy our season didn't get interrupted this year with snow!
