Statement Jackets! Buffalo Plaid + Stripes do mix, right? :)


 The best part of a statement jacket, in my opinion is that you can usually keep everything else basic and let it stand on it’s own.  I didn’t happen to do that in this case though, haha.  We took my parents out for dinner to thank them for watching Maya while I went to Austin with the Huz, and I felt like getting a little festive.  I mean, any reason to dress up, and I’m “GAME ON!!” 🙂

You can never go wrong with stripes!  At least, I don’t think so.  I wore a pair of faux leather leggings to keep me warm, and threw on a pair of Frye boots that I’ve had for 6-7 years.Blog Elliot Lauren Buffalo Plaid Silence Noise Striped Dress Frye Fiona 3 Strap Boots-1 Blog Elliot Lauren Buffalo Plaid Silence Noise Striped Dress Frye Fiona 3 Strap Boots-2Oh, and this jacket?  Random eBay add on purchase last year to get combined shipping for….$2.80!!!

Say WHAT!??!

Btw, am I the only one that will always look to buy something else to save on shipping?  I know that over the long haul I’m spending more, but I FEEL better about it haha. 😉Blog Elliot Lauren Buffalo Plaid Silence Noise Striped Dress Frye Fiona 3 Strap Boots-3 Blog Elliot Lauren Buffalo Plaid Silence Noise Striped Dress Frye Fiona 3 Strap Boots-4 Blog Elliot Lauren Buffalo Plaid Silence Noise Striped Dress Frye Fiona 3 Strap Boots-5 If there is one thing I will never get over being appreciative of, it’s all these SMILES I’ve captured of the two of us in this blogging journey…Blog Elliot Lauren Buffalo Plaid Silence Noise Striped Dress Frye Fiona 3 Strap Boots-6Yes, that’s a granola bar in her hand.  Ya do whatcha gotta do.  I managed to hide it in a few…and then not in a few 🙂 Blog Elliot Lauren Buffalo Plaid Silence Noise Striped Dress Frye Fiona 3 Strap Boots-7But really…if she’s happy, I’m happy. Blog Elliot Lauren Buffalo Plaid Silence Noise Striped Dress Frye Fiona 3 Strap Boots-8I absolutely LOVE her jacket!!  I scored it for $4!!!  It’s in mint condition!  Probably because whoever owned it before wore it for a nano second for a fancy occasion, and was too scared to ruin it.  One of the many reasons I love thrifting.  Yeck yeah, I’ll throw that adorably WARM wool coat on her for no good reason 😉Blog GapKids Wool Gold Button Jacket Naturino Boots-1Dying over that smile.  It’s a little kooky because she has a mouthful of granola bar, but still….love. Blog GapKids Wool Gold Button Jacket Naturino Boots-2 Blog GapKids Wool Gold Button Jacket Naturino Boots-3 Blog GapKids Wool Gold Button Jacket Naturino Boots-4There are two trees that she loves to hide behind and then run to and from.  It never gets old.  For her or me 😉  So, yes.  I’m feeling like I have these exact pictures in about 5 different posts, but whatever.  That’s our life… Blog GapKids Wool Gold Button Jacket Naturino Boots-5 Blog GapKids Wool Gold Button Jacket Naturino Boots-6 And I so wish I had these boots in my size.  The little lace up the back?!!!  $4, yet they retailed for around $100.  Every once in a while I totally score on shoes for her.  At the thrift store they were covered in mud and looked like they were on their last leg.  For $4 I took a chance.  All I did was wipe them off with a wet wash cloth, and I swear they look brand new!  SCORE!Blog GapKids Wool Gold Button Jacket Naturino Boots-7

      Thanks Leyla!! In the past, I’ve worn it with jeans and a plain white top, thinking I had to just let it be on it’s own. I only grabbed it, because I wanted something festive, but now I LOVE the combo!! Honestly, I think I wear stripes 80% of the time hahaha. I might need an intervention… And, I KNOW!! I didn’t even get a good picture of it, because she wouldn’t stand still. It’s BEAUTIFUL! So many fun details. I totally want it in my size! Happy Hump Day to you!

      Ps- I almost stalked you and sent you a private message. I seriously wanted to reach through the computer and give you a hug the other day…

      xx Lauren
