Coming out of hiatus briefly to announce…


The theme this month is Gratitude (something you read that inspired gratitude).

See you Thursday!



I am just in love with Whitney’s outfit from last week. That shirt and skirt look like they were made for each other–an effortless mix of colors and patterns.

I kind of copped out this week and passed on the color green, because I am enamored with this jacket I found at Old Navy! I have been looking for the perfect casual cargo jacket for the longest time, and I’ve ordered several from Old Navy in the past only to return them because they weren’t right. I think what I like best about this is that it’s more of a cropped length like my denim jacket–I can still wear it with a shirt and pants, but it’s short enough to be flattering when worn with a dress (as opposed to longer jackets that bulk out at the hips.) It’s also a soft cotton so although the color gives off the cargo look I want, it’s super comfortable and fits so nicely.

I wore it a few other ways this week, but for this outfit I paired my cargo vest and combat boots with my lace dress for a mix of masculine and feminine pieces. I finished it off with a multi-colored gem necklace which I have loved for this fall!

BLOGGING BESTIES :: of buffalo plaid

Selah has the best collection of graphic tees so of course I loved her outfit last week!

I really wanted to copy her entire outfit but I thought it might be more interesting for you if I changed things up a little bit.  Here are the options that Selah gave me to choose from: “purple, a graphic tee, skinnies, dark wash denim, roses, ballet wedges and Buffalo check.”
Since I’m all about the plaid (like everybody and their brother) these days, I chose to pass along a buffalo check shirt!


Up until this week, I’d only ever worn this shirt with jeans and boots.  In fact, it has made only one previous blog appearance in which I asked for advice about how else to style the top.  Guess who suggested I try it with a feminine skirt?  Selah, of course!  To which I replied, “I’m thinking of a cute grey skirt that this could work with.”
So, almost one year later, Selah has re-inspired me to get creative with my buffalo plaid!
For those of you following along, Alex will be passing on an element from my outfit this week and here are her choices: buffalo plaid, polka dots, pattern mixing, green, grey, ballet flats, or a glamorous necklace!
