A New Kind Of Camo

Not a bad bit of camouflage if I do say so! This dress just blends right on in with the changing leaves - I bought it at the start of the summer and even though I rarely wear empire waist dresses, I found a few this summer that I do really love. This dress however is one of my favorites and I can't believe I haven't taken photos of it yet, I usually wear it once a week because it is so comfortable. The print is also really striking to me, I don't normally wear a loud floral print but man, this bright one with the black background just really gets me. I am not normally very creative when I wear this dress, usually just a denim jacket and tada!

Sandal Wearing Weather

This month is moving at such a fast pace, I can hardly believe that September is almost upon us. I'm trying to milk these last few weeks/hopefully not days left of sandal wearing weather and enjoying only wearing a light jacket in the mornings. The first frost hasn't hit quite yet so here's hoping to a long and warm autumm.
This hat is actually my old gardening hat, you've seen it a few times around the blog but with how awful the mosquitoes have been lately, it's gotten quite a bit more wear. It's actually suppose to be bug repellent and while I don't know how well it works now that it's several years old, I'll take every little bit of help I can get, even bug dope isn't helping to keep the mosquitoes away right now!

Party Birks Ride Again

The party Birks are back in all of their sparkly glory! However, they are super hard to get a decent picture of, the color never quite comes through and they are SO much more sparkly in rl than in pictures. I bought Izzy some sparkly Birkenstocks knock offs last year and they were so cute I ended up searching all over for a pair for myself. Why are kids clothes so cute?!

Early Twilight

A mosse jumped in front of the car the other morning, it was right at that early morning twilight which tends to be the most dangerous time for moose. It's difficult to see them in the twilight and this guy popped out of the woods right in front of us - I was so thankful we missed him! A moose went through one of my brother's windshield  earlier this spring (and wasn't injured!) and they tend to be one of the most dangerous things about driving in Alaska. They are several times the size of a deer and moose/car collisions usually end with the moose dead and the car totaled.

Old Favorites

Helmut Lang Jacket (consignment)
Free People Tunic (consignment)
Hue Leggings (consignment)
Ecote Boots
Anthropologie Bag (birthday gift)

Aside from my boots and accessories, everything in this outfit is second hand. By this point, I'd say that's pretty good representation of my closet, most if my clothes are second hand either through thrifting, consignment shopping of good old ebay and most of my accessories are store bought. It's fairly rare for me to buy shoes from a store, I've been lucky enough to find most of mine second hand as well, or brand new on ebay, a serious money saver when it comes to nicer shoes.

These leggings are my fall back on rainy days, they don't get wet at all! Trust me, I've tried - the water just rolls right off them. I haven't worn these boots a ton this past year,  I wore my Rag and Bone ones most of last winter and gave these suede version a break.  They are a little worn but still going strong.
