Hot Pants

Head to Toe: Top, Old Navy; Sweater; Guess (Gift); Jeans, Old Navy; Loafers, Steve Madden via Marshall's.

When I asked my boyfriend, Mackenzie, if he could take my blog pictures the other day, he initially refused, saying I've blogged these pink pants far too many times. Point taken...but when something works, why reinvent the wheel? I happen to love my hot pink pants, and don't plan on hanging them up just because summer is over. While I love burgundy and burnt orange, I'm glad to see that summer's neons and pastels have staying power this season.

And then I went to the doctor's and the nurse commented that my shoes look like weapons. Guess I'm 0-2.

Light As A...

Head to Toe: Dress, Old Navy via Consignment Shop; Tights, Target; Sweater, American Eagle (Gift); Belt, Mom's; Oxfords, Forever 21.

I've been loving my comfy autumn outfits, but was starting to feel like I was falling into a rut. Since I have a thing for feathers and colored tights, this look did just the trick yesterday. Plus, the dress was a $5 steal with the tags on at my favorite Consignment Shop...And the tights are $5 from Target. On my list to go back and purchase the rainbow.

Fall for Flannel

 Head to Toe: Flannel, Thrifted; Jeggings, Old Navy; Boots, Hunter; Bag, gift from Art Deco shop Miami; Scarf, American Eagle (Gift).

I have not been able to snap out of flannels this season. Nothing beats the comfort, and they look pretty cute with skinnies or leggings. Toss on a scarf and some accessories and call it an outfit...No one has to know you're wearing glorified pajamas.

Lost & Found

Head to Toe: Tank, Forever 21; Chambray shirt, Gap; Skinnies, Strawberry New York; Boots, Target; Bag, Rue 21.

Apologies for my lack of posts this past week. I seem to have misplaced my camera's memory card containing a few outfits from last week, and contrary to the title, have yet to find it. So I'm sharing some highlights of my weekend. Mackenzie and I took an impromptu trip to NYC (outfit above) and had a great evening walking around, window shopping and people watching. Sunday my friend Monika and I met up for a doggie play date at the park. It felt great to catch up and soak in the Fall sun.

Something Borrowed

Head to Toe: Top, Loft (Borrowed); Jacket, Gap (Borrowed); Jeggings, Plato's Closet; Loafers, Steve Madden via Marshall's.

In a pinch the other morning, Mackenzie's mom styled me in this adorable top and jacket combo that went perfectly with my new jeggings...I think I'm going to need to hit up her closet more often. ;) 
Thanks Ida!

Coffee Break

Head to Toe: Chambray button-down, Gap; Jeggings, Old Navy; Flats, Vince Camuto via Marshall's; Shades, Kenneth Cole via Marshall's; Bag and scarf, American Eagle (Gift); Bracelets, DIY and Urban Outfitters; Watch, Fossil (Gift).

I'm sporting my fall favorite, a chambray top, for a casual Friday. My weekend was also full of fall favorites, like football (go owls!), and I'm currently learning to crochet (thanks to library books, youtube, and lots of help from Mackenzie's mom, who is a pro). Other activities included my anytime favorites like thrifting and some good nachos.

Getting the Boot

Head to Toe: Button-down, thrifted; Skirt, Forever 21; Boots, Target; Bag, American Eagle (Gift); Shades, Kenneth Cole via Marshall's; Bike, Walmart.

Leather boots with dresses or skirts is one of my favorite fall combos. Too bad these are so tired and old that I am slightly embarrassed to still be wearing them...They're cute when you're too far away to see the holes in them, though. Anyone have any suggestions on sites/stores that have affordable shoes in small sizes? Because I may be shunned as a fashion blogger if I keep wearing these in public.

Hey Stud

Head to Toe: Top, Old Navy; Jeans, Delia's; Blazer, H&M (Gift); Bag, American Eagle (Gift); Loafers, Steve Madden via Marshall's; Shades, Kenneth Cole via Marshall's; Watch, Fossil (Gift).

To continue with my goal to wear last fall's neglected pieces, I'm sporting these funky jeans from Delia's. I bought them last season and never quite found the right outfit., but thought they worked well cuffed with my new loafers. Speaking of my new loafers, I am in love with the trend EXCEPT this pair is horribly uncomfortable and gave me some serious blisters. Anyone have similar shoes? Give it to me straight, do they break in eventually, or am I destined to be Band-Aid ridden after each wear?

Thanks a Latte

Head to Toe: Tunic, thrifted; Jeans, Loft; Moccasins, Minnetonkas (Gift); Shades, Kenneth Cole via Marshall's; Bag, American Eagle (Gift).

Fall has officially fallen. Muggy nights and bright mornings have been replaced by Autumn's chilly, crisp ones...and I'm loving it. I'm consuming pumpkin coffee by the pound, and wearing some of my favorite pieces from last year, as well as a few I neglected (like this tunic that I bought at Savers and never wore). What are you loving about early fall?

Long Time No See

Head to Toe: Dress; Forever 21 via Consignment Shop; Blazer, H&M (Gift); Heels, Target; Watch, Fossil (Gift).

Hi strangers. So sorry it's been forever and a day since my last post. I had a fun, eventful Labor Day weekend and then a super hectic week that was kicked off with a photo shoot for work and ended with my best friend's wedding. I wore this awesome horse-print dress (that was a consignment steal, $10 with tags on) for a work event on Tuesday. I'm also sporting my new favorite accessory, a rose Fossil watch my honey surprised me with. Pics of the wedding are definitely to come, but for now, here are some of the other things that kept me away all week.

 Clockwise from top left: Kicking off my Labor Day weekend with one last beach day, brunch in New Haven with my besties,
