Winter is coming…

…but it isn’t here yet! Instead, we’re flip-flopping through some sunny weather, rain, fog, and bitter cold that would make anyone want to just wear pajamas and stay home. So just a quick hello between chilly weather, to share this sunny Fall day outfit.

Let’s go shopping: more made in USA

I’m hoping to make this Made in USA  ‘shop along with me’ a new frequent feature, I’ve created a tag for it to follow those types of posts here. The goal being that you can shop Made in USA all over, be it new, used, or recycled.

I’m going to combine several days of window shopping here, over a range of shops. In hopes to show you that shopping made in USA can be achieved at many different price points and tastes.

Crossroads – trendy resale store, good for basics.

Feeling the green

When I did my previous post, I first thought I didn’t wear much green – but after an evening of going through my blog archives, I’m amazed that WOW, I do have lots of green in my wardrobe. When I was young, I went through one of those phases where green was my favorite color and I wore a lot of it. I must have over-saturated myself, because it just wasn’t my color for a long time.

I have rounded-up some of my favorite past greeny outfits. As always, click on the photo to get to the original blog post!

Shades of green

Sooo…I owned (yes, past tense) only one black belt. Because why would you need more than one? And then…it disappeared. I can’t find it. I don’t know if I lost it while traveling. Maybe I threw it away on accident. Something so simple as a belt can change an outfit. I’m not in a rush to replace it, because alas, I have a handful of other belts I rotate (and because most of the time, you can’t even see it).

This outfit for example, I pulled together these three different shades of green, and a black belt would have just thrown the whole thing off. On that note, I think if I had the black belt, I may have fallen into a safer version of what this outfit could be.
