Buffalo Rock

buffalorock_1

Rock and roll and buffalo plaid creates a surprisingly simple, laid back look.  This weekend was all about getting things done, be it work or things around the house, but comfort definitely played a roll, and since skirts and t-shirts are my go-to, paired with slip-on sneakers this combination was key.

Early Mornings

earlymornings_1

I am all about early morning flea market trips, but while in the summer getting up before the sun means you can slip on a sundress and beat the afternoon heat, a mid-November visit in search of vintage treasures means you’re going to pile on the extra layers.  Tall boots, a thick knit, and soft flannel was all it took to keep me shivering a whole lot less under my oversized camo.

Show Stopping Shoes

showstoppingshoes_1

Someone pointed out this week just how close Thanksgiving actually is, and with that I feel like I’ve instantly transitioned into holiday prep mode.  While I still happily have pumpkins out on display, I’ve seriously started to start my holiday gift shopping and find myself scooping out outfits for festive occasions.  This pair of shoes immediately caught my eye and there was no way they weren’t getting into my closet.  I’m a sucker for a fun shoe, and the giant red bow makes this pair a seasonal show stopper; even a little laser-cut leather couldn’t steal the spotlight.

The ‘Crew

thecrew_1

Typically, I try to break up my outfits so they’re not featuring all one brand; more so to keep things a little more interesting for you guys than because of some weird, personal neurosis.  That said, most days you just want to wear what you want to wear (especially if you’ve picked up something new, like this sweatshirt I just couldn’t resist), and if they all happen to be from the same store, so be it.  When J. Crew does a sale, they tend to do it right, and while each of these pieces were scored on separate occasions, I grabbed them all for a song.  Right now J. Crew has another sale going on, 25% off full-priced items and an extra 40% off sale, so I thought I’d share some of the pieces I’ve got my eye on right now.  Full disclosure, they’re mostly sweatshirts not unlike the one I’m wearing here, but hey, there’s nothing wrong with looking cute and being comfortable.

Tall

tall_1

I may wear a lot of heels, but I am definitely not “tall”.  That didn’t stop me from ordering this illusion skirt when it went on sale this summer, even though the only sizes left were “Tall”.  I love the midi length that was created, and it’s made me realize that I don’t need to shy away from a cute style I spot just because I don’t fall into the suggested 5’9” and over height requirement.
