2020 AVE Plaid Flannel Shirt Dress // Fantas Round Sunglasses // American Apparel Opaque Stockings // Alexander Wang Rocco // Celine Buckle Strap Clogs

It was Sean's idea to stop by this bridge. He said he wanted to take me to a bridge where all these rap music videos are shot ha ha. So we stopped by and it was funny because I've driven over this bridge a ton of times since I work right next to it. It was really windy and not so easy to climb in these clunky wooden clogs.

I saw this Flannel Dress on 2020AVE and I had to have it! It's so cute and the front is shorter than the back so I decided to wear my black stockings. I'm also very happy because I have my round sunglasses back! I crushed my first pair so I bought two of them in case I am destructive on an off day.

Lace and Camo

Finally, a baggy maxi skirt that doesn't make me feel like I'm hauling around a fabric store! I picked this one up at the Nightcap sample sale in the Cooper building this week since I started work later than I usually do. I paired the skirt with my Lisbon top because it has fluttery edges and I thought it was the perfect girly complement. I threw in the faux shearling camo jacket and Tardy boots to make it a little more tomboy and more my style.

Who knew this dirty old alley by my place could look so dreamy! I've tried doing countless blog posts in alleys and they usually turn out less magical. Maybe the lack of dumpsters did the trick today. I almost wore this top with a high waisted maxi skirt and I am so happy I decided to wear these navy bells instead. I love the fun 'Japanese daisy' print and they are my only bells I can wear without heels. I'm just praying that Spanish Moss does another sample sale so I can buy like everything they make. So much regret only buying two things at the last one.. 

Late Night Delirium

One of the best parts of going home is digging through my old clothes! I found these suede boots that I bought in college and thought they would be perfect for fall. I'm not into the jeans-with-tall-boots-look so I wore mine with some itty bitty faux leather shorts. I got a package with a bunch of Michael Stars clothing and I purposefully picked all the soft, stretchy goodies because I want to be comfortable once the weather starts getting colder. The hi-lows do a good job of covering up the rear, a major plus in my book. I also played it up with the textures and wore my glossy leather jacket with lots of suede accessories.

Good night, world!

I was fiending for another Nightcap piece ever since I got my first Nightcap dress during Planet Blue's amazing 75% off sale last year. I spied this little floral romper on Free People a while back and I have been mega stalking the site bi-weekly until it finally went on sale. It actually had a really generous first-cut discount so I purchased it right away. I'm a fan of the straight neckline and the adjustable criss-cross side ties. The front panel is perfectly sized so there's no weird side boob spillage, but it shows enough skin on the sides to stand out.

I also got these DV ankle boots on Shop Akira a couple weeks ago when they had their additional 40% off sale. I accidentally shipped them to my mom's house, but I picked them up last week and I've been wearing them non-stop to work every day. They are so comfortable, not as comfy as my dicker boots, but they come to a close second. I sense that Shop Akira will be having an even better sale during black friday so I would highly recommend these boots if you're in the market for an every day ankle boot.
