Outfit of the Day: Oct 2, 2019

Second of October, wouldja look at the time fly by. We’re already organizing our Christmas card photos since we’d like to have them mailed out a little earlier since most of them go to Canada and I’d like them to arrive before Christmas. Similar to last year we’re going to do them ourselves with a tripod set up in a specific location I’ve scouted out for us this year. Let it be a tradition, I say!

So, another OOTD post. You bored of them yet?

This time I’m comin’ atcha with a new feature – these vegan boots I got as a PR sample. They’re the Luana bootie made by Arcopedico.

Like ’em? I sure do. I got a size 9 and I think if they did half sizes I’d definitely size up. I don’t usually wear socks in my shoes, but come winter time I would and I think I’d need some extra room in there if I’m wearing socks. 

How has everyone been? Thanks for sticking around all these months while I tried to figure out what to do with the ol’ blog. I knew I didn’t want to turn it into a full-blown mom-blog since I prefer not to talk much about my son online, or show his face/name. But occasionally I’ll update you on his fun adventures. For now, I’m trying to find the best time to sit down and write a post, and what type of posts – OOTD/Beauty related etc. I’m not sure.

Anyway let’s get onto a few more outfit photos, then the outfit details. 

This next pic is a more of Instagram vs. Reality. I don’t have a vase for my pampas grass yet, and so I put this one stalk in a giant pot hoping it’d stay put for my photos (which it clearly didn’t since I’m holding it in most the pics). Hence my frustrated face trying to fix it while my self-timer shots kept going on.

Outfit details:
Sweater: Universal Threads by Target. I’m usually a small/medium but I stuck to the small for this sweater. The medium made the sweater too frumpy
Leggings: Forever 21 high wasted. Junk leggings that I need to keep haulin’ up. I’ll keep wearing until they wear out because I hate wasting money.
Booties: Arcopedico (linked above!)

Outfit of the Day: Sept 23, 2019

All black was my go-to for the past year. But it never really suited me as much as earthy tones does. So in the next few upcoming OOTDs I’m bringin’ it back. For now, enjoy an all black ensemble.

I also realized it’s much easier (obviously) to take my outfit photos when he’s napping.

Outfit details:
Tank: Old Navy (they seem to bring this one back every year). I bought it in a size large and wore it while pregnant. Now I use
Leggings: prAna. These have lasted me 3+ years. I wear them at least 2-3 days a week, wash them in hot. Slapp’em in the dryer. Wash them in cold. Doesn’t matter, they don’t shrink, they don’t pill. They were a PR sample years back, but such a good piece. In fact, all my prAna clothes (which were mostly all PR sent/gifted) are fantastic quality that wash even better and still look brand new for years to come.
Shoes: Vince
Bag: Neiman Marcus

Outfit of the Day: Sept 20, 2019

Didn’t think that you’d hear from me again this quick – didja!!

So I found a good way to take self-timershots without a proper tripod and without having my phone dropping onto concrete.

My camera is seriously inside of a shoe, and that shoe is laying on the stroller. Lol. Hey, whatever works. Bebs was down for his nap and I had the stroller out, so I decided to see how it worked for me. And worked it did.

Although this is an incredibly basic outfit, it’s what I’ve been reaching for, and pretty much my daily “uniform”. Fall is coming up and I’m looking forward to start layering more.

Are you guys interested in all the OOTDs, or more of the layering ones. Cause I mean jeans and a tee guys, you can’t get any simpler than that.

Anyway, this is what I wore literally today. Thought I’d share. I’m using my Google pixel to take these shots and often I have “motion” turned on, which means it takes a variety of shots all within probably a half second, so I can save any of the shots in the motion – you know in case I blink, or if I’m squinting hard into the sun. I can omit those. However with those, if it’s not the original, and if it’s part of the motion, it’s like taking a still from a video, the quality isn’t great. But, I mean, it’s only an OOTD not like I’m taking super fantastic product shots here or anything. So I’ll let it go.

Outfit details
Crewneck tee: Target (in stores now!)
Jeans: Articles of Society  (they’re always on sale with the Nordstrom Anniversary sales)
Belt: Decades old from American Eagle
Shoes: Johnston & Murphy (seen here, and here)
Bag: My goodie bag from Neiman Marcus that I got here.

Weird blooper that I sometimes may not include. My keys bulging out of my arse pocket, and me thinkin’ a good ol’ hair flick would look cool. It did not. ha!!!

Up-close shot because this one was too cute not to share. He honestly just squat down behind my shoes, wouldn’t move, and kept saying “CHEESE!”. Sidenote, I need to clean the shoes obviously – but if you’re not aware you can easily clean sneakers with imitation (or the real thing…) Magic Eraser things! Just google melamine sponges. Or pick’em up at the dollar store.

So, there ya have it. Enjoy your weekend folks.
