Happy October, friends!  Am I the ONLY freak that was uber excited that October 1st fell on a Monday?  Monday’s are already for fresh starts, but when the 1st + a Monday collide….happy AF!

A happy little buzz (not the wine kind of buzz) comes along with the month of October.  How can you not crack a smile when you walk past piles of pumpkins at the grocery store.  The temps start taking a slight dip.  Dream of hearty recipes.  Fluffy blankets.  Cozy sweaters.  Red wine…oh yeah.  Festive fall candles.  Changing of colors.  We saw a lot of this in Oregon last week, which I’ve never experienced before here in California.  Slowing down.  And starting fresh.

Hence the 1st falling on a Monday.  And it being the last 90 days of the year.  It’s the perfect time to freshen up.  Change your routine.  I’m jumping on the #last90days challenge.  Basically living the last 90 days how you lived the first 90 days of the year. We’ll touch more on that next week though.

I need to add #twinning with my tween to the list!  Ha!

Our LA sweatshirts have been on maj repeat.  We’ve declared them to be our weekend wear.  And she still thinks it’s cool to match me!  Insert happy dance.

Wanna twin with us?  lol!  Our sweatshirts are 40% off with code: BIGSALE  And the Levi’s are marked down today too!

{casual + edgy + dressy}

Blazer // Denim // Grateful Dead Tee ($16)// Heels // Earrings // Sunnies // iPhone case

 

I’m all about an eclectic look.  Putting some of my favorite classic pieces together.  Mixing and matching different styles to come up with something new + unexpected.  I like to call this one casual with a touch of dressy and a side of edge.  Ha.  A little business mixed with a little casual.  Kinda reminds me of my {the mullet} #ootd from November 2016!

During my {spending freeze} (aka the worst 30-days ever) I was challenged to create new outfits with things I already had.  So, I pulled out all the classic, timeless pieces that I wear over and over.  J.Crew Blazer.  Levis.  Heels.  Then find a way to jazz it up into something new + fun without spending money.

Ladies, grab all your tanks + graphic tee’s!  Mix and match them with cardigans + blazers.  It’s such a great way to incorporate summery items while transitioning to fall.

Would you rock something like this?

Tuesday would be a lot cuter if it were Friday!  Just saying!

The vacation hangover is a real thing.  I’m dying peeps.  I mean, not really.  Just a passenger on the struggle bus this week.  It just so happens to also be one of those weeks where there is something penciled in on every.single.day.  Whyyyy?  And it’s going to rain.  WTF Mother Nature?  Get it together.  I was in sandals (pictured below) and a short sleeve top yesterday.  Obvi Spring Fever is a real thing too!

Okay, enough bitching.  Maybe if we all bust out our cute spring outfits, the sun will come out + stay out?  It’s worth a shot 🙂

Here’s what I wish I was wearing/can’t wait to wear……

It’s Hump Day…..unfortunately not Friday.  Even though it feels like it should be Friday.  Anyone else?  All day yesterday, I thought it was Wednesday.  I wrote it.  Almost screwed up some plans.  Then I realized it was Taco Tuesday, and that made it a little better.

Speaking of Taco Tuesday, Maria’s Cantina stepped up their Taco Tuesday game.  The normal 2 Woodland Tacos + Modelo for $5 have a new partner.  2 Woodland Tacos + Margarita for $10!  And the bartender can also make a mean skinny, skinny marg too!  You’re welcome.

You guys…..

TOMORROW is the first day of March!  We are inching closer and closer to Spring.

20 days to be exact.  The countdown has begun.

I’m dreaming of Spring.  And all things Spring.  Nothing beats the onset of Spring.  Am I right?

And how about this scallop eyelet trim sweatshirt?  It’s perfection.  Crisp white.  Feminine eyelet detail.   Keyword: ON SALE!

I put this sweatshirt on and fell in love ♥

I can’t wait till it warms up just a little and I can pop this on with a pair of cut-off shorts + sandals.

But, until then, I’ll be rocking it with warm jeans + closed toed shoes…lol.

{chardonnay}

When your homegirl tells you J.Crew has the perfect T-shirt.  Not just any old T-shirt.  A T-shirt that represent you.

A fucking chardonnay T-shirt you guys!

IMG_5501

You buy that T-shirt.  And you wear that T-shirt with pride.  Well done J.Crew, well done.

CHEERS!!!

The only thing missing is a big glass of chard in my hand.  But this was taken at 7:30 am and that may have looked kinda funny?

{sick outfit…literally}

You guys, I’m officially sick.

The cold finally hit me.  I’ve been fighting it for over a week.

I have a rule for sick days…..

Don’t dress like you feel.  Wear something cozy, but make sure it’s cute.

Is it just me, or can a cute outfit make you feel a little better?  Just a little?

If I wore a hoodie and leggings to work (which I’ve never in my life done) I would probably just surrender.  Lay my head on my desk and give up.

I will survive.  Because I have a cute cozy sweater on.  My favorite slide on sneakers.  And of course, jeans.

S W E A T E R // I know, I know….everyone in the world owns this sweater.  It’s basically Instagram famous.  I tried it on and now know exactly why.  #1 – price tag $39.  #2 – The bell sleeves are to die for.  #3 – Brown rustic color is so on point.  #4 – Pairs great with denim + white + black bottoms.  #5 – Soft AF!  #6 – runs large, so when you order a size down you feel all skinny and shit..HA!

{shopbop sale}

I interrupt your regular scheduled programming to bring you this VERY public service announcement……
Shopbop is having a sale.
And I’m currently accepting applications for a sugar daddy so I can scoop up some of these great sales 🙂  Only till Friday night though.  Then the sale is over.  And your services will no longer be needed.
Ha!
I’ve told you before, and I’ll tell you again.  You need these Levis.
They are the “IT” jean.  GAP True Skinny are a close second.  I don’t know how to explain it, but they almost give you a nice little butt lift.  Sounds crazy, but you gotta try them on to understand.  You can even grab a pair for $70!!!  Do it.
I even wrote a post about it!!
Remember my shades from {friday 5}, yep, they are on sale too!!!
$55!
Check out my other picks and pretties that I currently have my eye on!  That Madewell bag is everything!!!

{fringe + tassel sandals}

FullSizeRender (16).jpg

Target got me again.  Just take all my money + see you next week!  Ha!

Have you checked out the shoe department lately?  Peeps – It’s like really, really good right now!

I locked my eyes on these fringe toed + tassel tie sandals and knew they would be coming home with me!

IMG_4781.JPG

Ginger Slide Sandals

I know you’ve seen these all over the internet.  The price tag is normally wayyy out of my range for a sandal.  Thank you Target for making an affordable version so I can keep up with the trend!  I’ve tried these black beauties wrapped around my ankle and tied in the front with the tassel dangling…so cute.  Or you can go for a more dramatic look by crisscrossing up your leg.  Also super cute.  For $23 I’m very happy with this purchase.

Details:

• Flat/no heel sandal
• Ankle-tie lacing for a custom fit
• Fringe toe & tassel details for style
• Rubber outsole for durability & comfort
