    Three Ways to Wear an Orange Sweater

    Three Ways to wear an Orange Sweater

    Three ways to wear an orange sweater

    Today I’m doing a little remix on the blog! I’ve got three ways to wear an Orange mock neck sweater.

    I’ve had this orange sweater for a long time. There was a massive consignment store near my college. Their regular priced inventory was way out of my price range but they had a clearance room that was just as big! Oftentimes they had clearance inventory marked 90% off!! It was amazing. I picked up this sweater my senior year of college (so around 4 years ago!!) for probably a few bucks. I didn’t wear it a ton when I first picked it up but turns out, it’s been a staple in my wardrobe as my style has evolved since then.

    It’s always fun to look back at these remixes to see what pieces of clothing I still have. I don’t have that leather jacket anymore as I decided it is just a little bit too big! But I still love pairing this orange sweater over my velvet jumper dress. This look was definitely Halloween inspired!

    I actually still have everything featured in the first outfit! The polka dot skirt was also a secondhand purchase in college so it’s lasted me a long time! I don’t wear my converse nearly as much as I used to but maybe I should pull them out again soon. I forget how perfectly they go with anything! Jeans, dresses, skirts – it all works with a simple pair of converse. Even though I don’t wear my converse as often, I still keep them around. They’ve traveled the world with me as silly as it sounds.

    Last year during blogmas I finally shot an outfit I’ve worn countless times before to work! Every time I’ve worn it, I’ve wanted to photograph it for the blog but it never worked out. I love the pop of color with the sweater against my favorite paisley pants from Topshop. I don’t have those shiny shoes anymore from Payless as they were just so uncomfortable but I have a pair similar now that I like a lot more. These paisley pants will probably be in my wardrobe as long as they fit me and don’t fall apart! They are one of the only purchases I’ve made from Topshop and I love them. They are a really nice material, warm, and pretty flattering!

    a Parisian Inspired look

    Parisian Inspired look

    Parisian style is something I’ve always admired, as most people have. The simplicity, the classic styles, the effortlessness – it’s all perfect! Most of the time, my style is a bit brighter and bolder than the Parisian style you might think of but I knew with this outfit that I had to use a hint of Parisian inspiration.

    I knew I wanted to keep this look simple to highlight my new (to me!) Breton striped top. Something about it felt so Parisian and classic to me. I’ve mentioned it before but whenever I wear an outfit like this, with such classic and timeless pieces, it makes me want a capsule wardrobe with only pieces like this. But I know I’d get bored. I’d miss my crazy patterns, colors, and textures that my current wardrobe provides.

    You guys know I can’t help myself if I find a cute striped top at the thrift store. My collection is getting a little out of hand but I am trying to make sure I give one away or sell one if I pick up another one. I’m also a sucker if  I find an Ann Taylor Loft piece that is an XXS petite. I don’t find it too often but when I do (and it’s cute) I always pick it up! There is something so magical about sleeves actually fitting when you’re petite like me!

    My jeans were actually a retail purchase from LOFT. They are seriously the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn – especially for a pair of skinny jeans! I think they are “technically” leggings (or that’s what LOFT calls them) but they are very thick, have pockets, and feel like denim to me! Seriously, if you are in need of a pair of jeans – check these out!! They come in a wide range of sizes too, which is always nice. I’ve got them linked down below so definitely check them out! (They also are not an affiliate link. I just love them!!)

    a Winter Thrift Haul

    Hello!

    Today I’m bringing you a thrift haul video. I’ve been thrifting a lot the past couple of months. It’s a nice distraction, honestly but I’ve also been selling a lot on Poshmark and am loving it! But this video is a thrift haul of things I plan on keeping. I’m also hoping to make a lot of video content during blog/vlogmas so if you have anything you want to see please let me know!

    Coat Weather

    For someone who lives in the south, I have a lot of coats. I mean, a lot. (See my coat collection video from last year). I’ve gotten a few of them retail over the years but a majority of my most beloved coats come from the thrift store!  Finding a thrifted coat that fits well, is in good condition, and warm is one of the most difficult things to find. I’ve found some of my most fun and colorful coats that way, though. I always check the coats during the office season when other people aren’t (so summer for coats, winter for shorts, etc). But this coat I actually found last December!

    After work on most Fridays, my friend and I would venture over to the Salvation Army near where work. I normally never go to the Salvation Army but this one was fairly clean and pretty cheap! I somehow found this coat in the dead of winter and, probably the biggest miracle, the sleeves fit! I’ve featured it before on the blog but I knew I had to rock it again this season!

    I really wanted to take some pictures of my outfit without my coat but… it was 35 (1-degree Celsius!) outside when I shot these! But everything besides my shoes is secondhand, which is always a great feeling! I always forget about these forest green jeans but they are sooo comfortable! They’re originally from Zara, which when I go into the store never seem to find anything I like. But whenever I find it at the thrift store I love it! My sweater is a chunky cable-knit originally from GAP but you guessed it… I got it at the thrift store! I actually found it for only a dollar, which is an incredible deal for such a thick and warm sweater!

    Are you excited about the cold? (if you’re in the northern hemisphere!)

    Welcome to Blogmas!

    Welcome to Blogmas!

    I started participating in blogmas last year when I felt like I really needed to get my butt into gear when it came to blogging so I knew I had to do it again this year. I really want to take this blog seriously and I think posting every day will help with that. I’ve got 25 days of content so get excited for a lot of blog posts and videos!

    What is blogmas?

    It’s where I publish a blog post/video every day until Christmas! Obviously, I’m a little behind but I’ve got a lot of content coming up for you. There will be a lot of different kinds of content too – not just fashion! I’m even thinking of talking more about my vision impairment if that is something you guys would be interested in!

    But let’s get onto this outfit! This fall I actually put this dress up on my poshmark but decided to take it down because I love it too much! It’s originally from Amour Vert, a beautiful sustainable fashion brand but I found it at Goodwill! I couldn’t believe it. I was going to sell it because I thought it might be too tight but I think it works perfectly with looser jackets like this new one from Loft.

    This jacket was another Black Friday purchase from Loft. I figured it would be the perfect “working from home” jacket. It’s the perfect mix between a hoodie and a blazer, which sounds like such a weird combination but it really works with this jacket! Plus the inside is fleece. You can’t go wrong with that! They had a lot of different colors except for the Petite sizing – they only had this gray speckled color but that’s okay. I still love it!
