Weekly Outfits Part 2

This is the outfit I wore to the school meet and greet. I wish I hadn't worn these boots because this outfit would have been so much cuter with my Acne cowboy boots, here it just looks a little disjointed thanks to the tall boots. I was really cold that day so I understand what I was thinking but it really didn't quite work in the follow through.

At the other end, I loved this outfit. This is an American Apparel sweater i found at the thrift store and it's 100% cotton and feels really lovely. The color is pretty amazing as well so I was excited to pair it with my light wash AG jeans and these cute leather loafers I thrifted.

And swinging back into the don't like camp, this outfit. again, I understand what I was going for but this outfit could have been saved by wearing one of my white embroidered shirts. This Isabel Marant top has that strange waist line that seems to kill every outfit I wear it in. Might be time to take this one to the consigment shop.

I love this Isabel Marant dress, was just having an icky day and felt pretty off. I like the outfit, just not me I guess?
I wore this is the morning to walk the kids to the bus and liked it so much i wore it all day. It's simle, just black jeans, nikes, a sweater, my husband's cap I keep stealing and this coat I love. I suppose keeping it simple seems to work for me right now since I feel like I'm all over the place style wise.

Weekly Outfits Part 1

Well hi guys. Nothing like a big gap in posting. Time has been getting away from me with regards to putting work into this blog-thing and at some point, I'll have to type up some real posts! For today, I've got some photos I've taken out outfits from this past week two weeks. The first is this one, I wore my Rick Owens dress to go see The Meg with the family and one, love this outfit and two, that movie was actually really good! (Far better than the book I thought. Five mins in I was like, ugh, seen this movie before and by 20 mins in, I'd turned to my husband and said, this movie is great! It's a fun, silly movie and totally worth watching.)

I wore my Isabel Marant jeans this day with a silk top and a leather jacket. I like this outfit, it feels like old me but the pants are starting to fit odd. Ugh!

I loved this outfit, silk top and skirt with clogs? Oh yeah! I hadn't worn a belt with this skirt before and I really enjoyed the orange fabric one and how the colors went together.

Blue velvet bellbottoms baby. I like these pants so much and really liked the whole outfit - a shearling jacket with bell bottoms and big shoes seems to be a formula that works for me.

really nicely and I loved the color scheme. It was a rare warm day so I broke out mu MiuMiu platforms. This summer has felt kind of off for me in terms of style (and I'm sure the long run of cold weather didn't help) and while I've been trying new things, i think i also brought too much into my closet with the thrifting. I'm going to back off from that for a while now because I think I'm just overwhelmed both with my lack of time and too much in the closet. This outfit was a good reminder to wear my old stuff because there were so many items I thought about for a long time before buying and they've proven to be work horses for me.

This outfit is probably one of my favorites in a very long time. Everything came together Yeah, this outfit is a good reminder of what I said above. I've wanted a cute thermal for so long but I also bought these pants and have discovered this summer that I really hate how BDG pants fit me. I realize a lot of people like them as a high rise but I cannot get a decent fit in them. I think I'm going to go through, take out all of the pants that don't work any more and take them to the consignment. I have pairs I love and that do fit well so no time nor money for bad fitting pants!

Weekly Past Outfits

 We went to the Tanana State Fai this past weekend.  Had a good time, was warm and sunny out and then the car's front brake line popped a hole.  We ended up being in town late enough to watch the firework and my husband was able to fix the brake line so it's all good.

 Fringe boots, big jacket and a banana with a tractor - a ok outfit.

Alright, I thrifted this dress - it has no label and is a fake wrap style but I really like it.

 My Spell Designs kimono - I normally only wear it with shorts and..did the same here.  Go me?  I'll have to be more creative.
 This is an Isabel Marant skrit I found for really cheap and while I like it, I think I will mostly wear it with tights, it feels just a bit too short.  If it ends up bin a no go, I know I can resell it for a good price.

 Just a work oufit.

 Ok, I loved my makeup here but the light was weird and I didn't get a good shot of it.
 This might be a bit much of a look, but I really loved it.

 A hot day again so maxi and sandals it is! (Sorry, my words are short because my keyboard is bonkers right now.)

Excited to break out this Ralph Lauren Collection cashmere/wool cape - I thrifted this and was so over the moon to actually find it - I'd been stalking it on ebay and this thing is never affordable. I got it from VV for $12.99!
Love this with the shoes.
 Out on a hike - Dakota was intentionally int his picture for once. #photobombqueen

Fall is coming....ugh.  School starts in a few days so I'm going to be pretty slammed with that and work and the normal winter prep, I'll try to keep up with the blog.
