That's So Kitsch







Free People Hat and Bag (christmas gifts) / Anthropologie Cardigan (thrifted) / Scarf Handmade / AEO Top / Loft Ponte Pants (thrifted) / Vera Wang Boots (consignment)

Remember when anthropologie was the bomb.com? I loved their look from 2008-2013, it was the perfect amount of kitsch and coziness with all of the colors. I'm not super into their current look but I do keep my eyes open when at the thrift or consignment store for some of Anthro's older items from that time period. This cardigan is one of the few I've found and I like it so much, a decent wool content, a soft pattern and it's pretty warm. Seeing as I live in the land of frozen body parts, it makes sense to have a solid winter wardrobe of sweaters, coats, boats and cardigans. I love those pretty summer dresses but the time to wear them is so short that I have to restrain myself. (Not very well that's for sure!)

In The Sun

I've been leaning way back towards color this fall after wearing so much black last winter - I don't know if it's a style shift or if I'm just feeling pretty good about stuff but it's been all the bohemian, all the color, all the time lately. Ha, maybe it's been the spurt of nice weather after a month of rain?

Velvet Pants

Flares man, I am so into them right now. I didn't wear them for so long because the extra volume on bottom made me feel frumpy (and did even when flares were last in style) but these are more of a bootcut then a true flare and I like them so much. These are a little long but after seeing a lot of stacking in street style/on the runways with flares, I kind of prefer this look to a perfectly hemmed flare.

Feeling The Boho





UO Hat / F21 Jacket (thrifted) / Scarf (Christmas gift, old) / Isabel Marant Dress (ebay) / Rag and Bone Boots (ebay)

I really like how this dress works with coats although I normally wear my black leather ones of my denim jacket over it, the burgundy is a bit new! There's a lot going on with this outfit again, lots of patterns, but I tried to keep my boots and bag simple so they wouldn't compete with the dress/coat/scarf and keep the whole thing from being overwhelmed.

Falling Into Fall






UO Hat and Cardigan (thrifted, older) / Isabel Marant for H&M Scarf c/o H&M (2013) / Winter Kate Top (ebay) / vince Suede Leggings (ebay) / Seychelles Boots

There's a lot of volume in this outfit but I don't care too much about that, winter might be coming but I'm going to enjoy comfortably layering for the moment! I realized fall hasn't yet started down in the lower 48 but we're in the last little bit of it up here and the snow can hit any day now. (UGH)

I've had this cardigan for a while now after picking it up at the thrift store and it's been a staple for me. It's pretty thick and has a decent wool to acrylic ratio so it's worn well and I can toss it in the wash without having to baby it too much. I love how the pattern works with other patterns, I've got quite a bit going on with the rivets on the boots, the woven bag, the patterned cardigan, the top and the scarf but I feel like having the basic black pants helped keep it from looking like too much.

Wash








Free People Hat (christmas gift) and Dress (ebay, older) and Boots

Another dress I don't wear a ton, I'm trying to break that bad habit and wear all of the things I don't wear as often as my black skinny jeans. Haha, those are becoming a crutch...

Coming Back Around





Free People Dress (ebay, older) / Seychelles Boots (old) / Trouve Belt (thrifted) / spell Designs Bag

I never wear this dress, even though I've had it for years and even though it has embroidery. It didn't help that I had a style shift for a little while but this past summer seemed to have brought back all of my bohemian sensibilities. Go figure right?
