Elevate your Sweats!


Remember the days when people only wore sweats when they were in a hurry to get dressed, worked out, or just felt plain old lazy? Well those days are no more! I love this Peter Pilotto for Target Collection sweatshirt because I can dress it down with leggings or jeans on days when I want to be extra comfy, or pair it with a skirt and heels for a different look. I wore this outfit a couple weekends ago.
You know those things that you wear for a time and then forget about for years? This skirt is one of them. I was cleaning out my closet this summer when I came across it and decided that I liked it again. lol This is why it's good to go shopping in your closets every once in a while! Needless to say, I decided that it was good enough to wear this fall. 
The big kid in me decided to play at the park, because you can't go to the playground and not play!

Black and a Floppy Hat


 
This is a continuation of  the previous post. I eventually threw on my trenchcoat over my outfit for warmth because was quite chilly and windy! As you can see from some of my previous posts, I like wearing color. However, I love wearing black. Black has always been one of my staple colors (along with grey and navy). I dress up in black, I dress down in black,sometimes I wear black for days. Wearing black has never failed me.

 I've had this hat for a couple years but I hardly ever wear it. Why? 1. I have to be in the mood to wear it (which doesn't happen often). 2. I have natural hair (a lot of it!) and my hair is hard to fit under hats.


I have had this trench coat for years and it always serves me well. I personally think that a trenchcoat should a staple in everyone's wardrobe.


I don't wear jewelry often, but when I do, I like to wear pieces that make a subtle statement. I like that this necklace stands out without being overpowering.

Tweed and Leather

Hey everyone! Life has been busy as of late. I'm in the process of securing photographers so that I can create content for you more often. I found this faux leather and tweed jacket on H&M's website a few months ago and knew I had to have it. The best part? It was on sale! Don't you love getting things on sale?
