Sometimes, there are outfits that aren't anything special. I'm just wearing a striped tee, jeans, and a trench, but I LOVE this outfit. I actually wore it to brunch a few weeks ago with different shoes, and once I got these cute little flats I knew there would be a repeat. And hey, you didn't see me in it, so really... If I didn't blog it, did it even happen?
I could make a lot of 50 Shades of Grey jokes right now. I could talk about how Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan have the chemistry of a wet paper bag and a moldy PB&J, but I'd have to admit that I read 2/3 of those books and that would just be embarrassing, wouldn't it?
Instead, I'll make a confession - I'm completely addicted to Instagram shopping. @Cleanupcloset, specifically - she's got the best stuff and has amazing prices, plus she does two day shipping. I've snagged Valentino, Theory, and now Isabel Marant from her shop (even though she's taking a break for a bit soon - gasp!). The confession, though, is that I'm swayed by a good deal and something in my size when it comes to thrifting, whether it be Instashops or resale apps. Sometimes, though, you get a gem. I've worn this jacket twice since Friday already and show no signs of stopping. It's GOOD, you guys. And it was a great deal, so putting it on just feels that much sweeter.
Once winter hits, I have a hard time not wearing all black every day. It's just easy (and often matches my mood). So to avoid dressing like a stage hand, I like to throw a few interesting pieces into the mix too. Stripes, because duh - a plaid coat for added cuteness - and a bold printed skirt with tights all keep things interesting (disclaimer: not to be worn all at once).
