Put a scarf on it...

{Scarf: thrifted at Act II Consignment ($2.00);  Shirt: Thrifted at Buffalo Exchange ($6.00)}

This was taken on one of the days my mom was in town.
I had a lovely time with her and can't wait to see her and the rest of my fam (hopefully) for Thanksgiving.
I also can't wait to share Halloween photos!!!
Last night was a doozy.

{Turtleneck: Ralph Lauren thrifted ($2);  Shirt: F21 ($4);  Chords: Levi's ($30);  Shoes: Doc Martins thrifted($4)}

You guys, it's the little things.  I found this Ralph Lauren Cropped (or super shrunk?) Turtleneck for $2.00 at Goodwill.  It's beautiful.  And I tell you what, my neck stays warm.  
I really can't say enough about thrifting and sale shopping.  Not only do I save boatloads of money, but the accumulating and then piecing together of an outfit from two-ish years of thrift/sale finds is so satisfying, so meant to be.
If you're not in on thrifting yet, get after it.  Iowa City folks, get to REVIVAL.  Denver folks, Goodwill on Broadway or that one place on Colfax and Lafayette.  Everyone else, Buffalo is an obvious go-to.
I hope y'all are doing well.  I just started club volleyball at UCD and I'm feeling a bit giddy from the physical exercise.  Bump, Set, Spike!  Just like high school.

[Scarf&Sweater: F21;  Shirt: Gap (Thrifted);  Jeans: F21;  Shoes: Nine West]

I love October.  I love the build-up to Halloween and the scattered leaves beneath my feet.  I love drinking apple cider and wrapping myself in the coziest of scarves every day.  I love coming home to homemade soup or chili in the crockpot.  Although the days get shorter and the nights a bit more brisk, October has always been my favorite month of the year.


[Shirt, Scarf and Floral Skirt: F21 (I know, shame on me!);  Leggings: Kmart;  Best Socks Ever: Nine West]

I've been trying to be more of a free spirit when I dress lately.  It can be a bit too tempting for me to fall into genre-dressing; so, I've made an effort to break free of my typical grunge, 90's, western, equestrian, lumberjack and prepster looks.  I wore this for a little pumpkin carving party my roommates threw.
I was so comfy I bailed on the party and went to bed.  HA!
The end.

On the dot...

[Coat: Banana Republic;  Sweater: Thrifted ($2.50!!);  Pants&Scarf&Shoes: F21]

I have a lot of different theories regarding the importance of dressing in an intentional and playful manner.  Choosing specific clothing items not only informs your mood and the tone of your day, but it also feeds the creative side your soul.  YOUR SOUL!!
Anyway, I have a million things to say on the subject of getting dressed, but! its 2am and I'm ready for sleep. 
Hope you had a lovely Friday night!  I went to the movie, "Sleepwalk With Me," and then had a couple of much needed drinks with Dan.

[Sweater: Max Mara (thrifted);  Scarf: Target;  Jeans: F21;  Leather backpack: Thrifted!!]

Today was a fine day.
I've been hangin round some fab people lately and they have really lifted my spirits.  
Ned, Spencer, Stuart, Morgan, Kyle, Swathi, and more.
I'm trying to incorporate more human interactions into my work/school/robot life and it has proved to be most beneficial.
Let's see, what else?  Despite the trials of work, the cash flow has allowed me to do a little shopping!!
This Max Mara sweater was a total steal at $5.00 and when I found the leather backpack below, I could have sung to the fashion gods.  $10.00.  Goodwill is the ish!!  I'll be sharing more of my thriftylicious finds soon.

Long lost...

[Shirt and sweater: Gap (thrifted);  Jeans: F21;  Scarf: Iowa City somewheres;  Cup: High school senior graduation present;  Rings: Denver Gems&Mineral Show!!!]

Howdy from your long lost blogger friend!  I swear that despite my wild and crazy school/work schedule, I still find time to put on clothes.  Sometimes even outfits.  Sometimes they're even cute outfits!!
I like this one okay.
Is anyone else stoked that it's FALL!?
This is my favorite season for fashion so hopefully I'll check into this bloggy a little more often.
Take er easy.
