I was looking at Pinterest last month for some fall outfits. It was wishful thinking, really, because the day I wore this outfit it was just about 90 degrees outside. Anyway, I came across this pin. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to own white pumps (I’d definitely wreck them the first time I wore them), but I loved the outfit and recreated my own version with a few items from my closet. That’s one of the things I really like about Pinterest: finding outfit inspiration and making it my own. How on earth did we get dressed before the internet?

I made this skirt back when I was really into DIY-ing skirts. This is the first maxi I’ve ever made and it’s very comfy and breezy. I wore this to work a few weeks ago. It’s a little casual for work, but I can barely function when it’s really hot outside, so the fact that I got dressed at all is kind of a miracle.

I’m still trying to decide exactly what the print on this skirt is. As you can see it’s floral, yet tribal. Flobal? Thaaaat sounds weird. I guess the bottom line (no pun intended) is: it doesn’t matter. The second I saw this skirt at the thrift store, I fell in love with the graphic print. The fact that it fit was the cherry on top!

I wore this little number around the house and to happy hour last week. I love rompers. I love the way they look (and I love the way this on feels–emphasis on the comfy), but the struggle has been real in my attempt to find the perfect adult-sized onesie. They’re usually just too short for my liking, but when I tried this one on at H&M on a quasi-recent shopping trip with my sisters, I bought it right away, even if it wasn’t technically on my “to buy” list. Can you blame me?
I was in Nordstrom Rack hunting for the perfect dress to wear to my friends’ wedding and I came across this one. I loved the print and when I looked at the tag and saw that it was marked down to $3.74 I knew I was buying it. Seriously less than $4 for a dress originally priced at $70! Even if I didn’t fit I probably would have bought it on principle alone. Not really, but I’m really happy it does fit!
One of my absolute favorite things about cooler weather is that you can layer your clothes and create much more visually interesting outfits. I’m always hot, so it feels like a special treat to be able to pile on layers and still be comfortable.
