Maybe They Are Bootcut?





UO Hat / Paige Jacket (thrifted) and Velvet Pants (ebay) / Winter Kate Top (ebay) / Free People Clogs / Dooney and Burke Bag (thrifted)

The velvet pants again. I like them so much, I wish I had an heart emoji or something.

I wear these Free People clogs the majority of the time I wear bellbottoms which is funny, I don't wear them that often with skinny jeans because they seem like they throw off the silhouette but they are so perfect with flares. They also make me really tall.

Priorities.

Turning Leaves








AEO Hat / Fred Meyer Top / Rag and Bone Leather Shorts (ebay) / Isabel Marant Flatforms (ebay) / Free People Bag (christmas gift)

As I mentioned before, there's not a lot of time left for bare legs up here in the Interior (although I do remember not wearing tights with dress in the dead of winter...I'm fairly sure that I did quite a bit of that at the start of the blog but I'm a super wimp now...) and I've been trying to take advantage of the few nice days we've had. I got a lot of wear out of these shorts this past summer and I'm sure I'll wear them quite a bit with tights this winter - I love shorts with tights! This top is from Fred Meyers (Kroger I think to most of the lower 48) and while it has been years since I bought anything from there, I saw this top and really fell for it. It's a nice material, thick and textured rather than a shiny poly blend and the stitching is very well done. (Because I'm the werido at store turning clothes inside out to inspect seams...) I love the print and so far have worn it quite a bit and it's nice that I don't have to baby it in the was, also, those sleeves! I really like the variety of sleeves in the trends right now and while I'm not a ruffles person at all, I really love the shape of these.

Blending In





AEO Bodysuit and Skirt / Clogs (thrifted) / Free People Bag (birthday gift)

This was a really simple outfit - top, skirt and clogs but I tried to make it a little exciting by wearing a velvet bodysuit, big earrings and a blingtastic bag. I didn't realized my skirt is apperently fall camo, it competely blends in with all of the leaves. I am trying to enjoy the last few days of going bare legged, the cold has been holding off but hat can't last forever.

Colors of Fall

Fall hits and I start pulling out all of my fringe bags I suppose. And all of the embroidery. and All of the color. Let's just go with it ok?

Yellow







UO Hat / Fake Leather Jacket (thrifted, old) / Fred Meyer Top / American Apperal Skirt (thrifted) / Free People Shoes / Celobella Bag

Look at all thos pretty yellow leaves! It would have been nice if they'd stick around for a little while, I swear they turned yellow, stayed up for a few days and then everything fell down. It was warm for a short while so I sucked it up and went sans tights (I don't know what's wrong with me now, I use to go no tights, no problem in the depths of winter but 40F now and I'm Wimpy McWimperson.) and while I don't love these shoes with this outfit, it probably would have been cuter with clogs, it's ok.

So Cool Man




UO Hat / Fred Meyer Top / Acne Jeans (consignment) / Free People Shoes / Celobella Bag

I've had these wide leg Acne jeans for a few years now and don't wear them that often, mostly because there's SO MUCH fabric when i wear them that an outfit can veer into frump territory real quick for me. I'm finally on the wagon about all of then new jeans styles that are out and man, I love those crop flares so much. Rather than buy more jeans, which I reaaaally don't need, I ended up hemming these up several inches and tada, new pants that feel so cool. (Because I'm old and way behind on the times ok?)

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






 


UO Hat / Issabel Marant for H&M Scarf c/o H&M (2013) / AEO Coat (2013) / Isabel Marant Top (ebay) / F21 Skirt (thrifted) / Rag and Bone Boots (ebay) / Spell Designs Bag

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








UO Hat / Issabel Marant for H&M Scarf c/o H&M (2013) /AEO Poncho (older) / Winter Kate Top (ebay) / Paige Velvet Pants (ebay) / Free People Clogs

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.
