owl be home for christmas

Oh hey, poor little neglected blog! I haven’t forgotten you. I have simply gotten way too boring and comfortable with my clothing lately. It’s been lots of sweaters and jeans, which just didn’t seem worth posting.

But my brand new owl earmuffs – owlmuffs, if you will – are definitely worth a look. Let me give you a better view.

a-maize-ing ensemble

Oh, hello! It’s been a while. Truth be told, I’ve simply been getting lazy and the dreaded C-word – no, not that, gutter-brains – comfortable. In any case, I’m back (for the moment) with what I wore to a really fun fall excursion this weekend. More than a dozen friends and I went to Richardson Farm in Spring Grove, IL, home of the world’s largest corn maze! We had spectacularly lovely, sunny weather during the afternoon but knew it’d cool off significantly once the sun went down, so it was all about layers.

Wore a cami under this Merona Ultimate Long-Sleeve Tee (in Mint Air) for extra warmth and paired it with a plaid vest by Heritage 1981 I’d never heard of this brand before, which is apparently made by Forever 21, but I got it at Crossroads in Evanston for $17. I’d been searching for the perfect vest for a very long time, and I really loved the fit, comfort, look, and style of this one (it also has a faux fur-lined hood, which I took off this weekend in favor of a hat).

rainy days & fundays

I feel like half my entries are about the unpredictable Midwest weather, but since it affects what you wear, it’s a necessary evil. Lately Chicago has gone from warm & summery to cold, back and forth all week. It’s not really anything out of the ordinary – fairly typical for the autumn transition, in fact – but sometimes I feel like I just can’t seem to get it right!

Anyway, today’s another rainy one – the sound of raindrops was so nice to wake up to… and, let’s face it, roll over and sleep a couple more hours. But now I’m up and off to meet friends for Easy A.

I’m trying to show you my rainboots (and failing). Top: Mossimo boyfriend tee (size S) from Target, jeans: Calvin Klein (size 10), hat: Target.

september sunday

Oh, Midwest, you tricky little minx. I already started dressing in Fall mode, and here it was sunny, warm, and generally beautiful! At least my colors were equally sunny & cheery:

This has been featured a few times before, maybe not even that differently, but I still thought it was fun enough to share. Dress: Four Stars (size L), brown woven leather belt: thrifted, yellow tights: Gap.

hard & soft

I’m not so sure this worked.

As I was putting it together in my head, I really liked the idea. But seeing the photos made me furrow my brow in slight panic as I rushed out the door with no time to change. Oh well!

candy-coated, soda-shop frock

Despite the fact that this dress isn’t really vintage or retro at all, I get a candy-coated, soda-shop vibe from it – perhaps it’s the colors or the shapes, which remind me of candies or fizzy soda bubbles.

In any case, it’s definitely light and flowy and fun.

casual friday

TGIF, am I right?

Super simple look today, but one I haven’t featured, so posting anyway – although there is really something to be said for simple clothes that are easy to wear and just make you feel good.
