I haven’t been feeling well the last week or so. I think it’s due to the weather shift. One minute it’s 12 degrees and misty outside, the next it’s 32 and a scorcher of a day. Anyway, I can’t wait to get rid of this aggressive cough – otherwise I feel grand and dandy – minus the two random days where I actually got sick sick. That’s never fun.
But what’s fun is more OOTDs. Yay. Hope you’re enjoying them like I used to post way back in the day. These pics were from a few weeks ago, but that’s what happens when I’m a tired mama. I don’t get time to post as regularly as I’d like. I’d rather shut everything down (ie: my body lol) when I put bebs down for the night. Anyway too many excuses! Let’s get onto the post:
Alfie will be TEN YEARS OLD in a few days. Can you believe it?
You’re not gonna believe where this sweater is from. I’ll tell you below in the details. I LOVE it. It comes in many colours, but make sure if/when you buy it you have a coupon.
Here Alfie’s in mid-bark because he sees my husband and bebs coming home from a run with the jogging stroller.
The foolish side of me then comes out. Trying to make bebs laugh ;)
Sweater: Old Navy
Belt: American Eagle (circa 2004 or so lol)
Jeans: Articles of Society (one of my faves, find them at Nordstrom!)
Shoes: Lucky Brand (but bought them at TJMaxx!)
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 – theseÂ 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.Â
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.Â
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.
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!)
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.
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.
Bag: Neiman Marcus
