Thrifting for the WIN!

 I didn’t set out to do this post as an “all thrifted” post.  Honestly, I just put on some of my favorite things, and then realized they were all MAJOR thrift scores!  I love it when I score things (obviously!), but it’s even better when the super scores become my favorite items!

I keep thinking it’s going to be time to pack away all the winter coats and bring out the spring wardrobe, but alas….not quite yet.  Admittedly, I originally took these images a month and half ago, but sadly it could have been taken this week as well.

This jacket is reversible, and is lined entirely in the body with faux fur.  SO warm and cuddly, and I love the bomber jacket look!blog-faux-fur-lined-bomber-jacket-rag-bone-moto-jeans-frye-harness-1 blog-faux-fur-lined-bomber-jacket-rag-bone-moto-jeans-frye-harness-2 It’s hard to tell, but the moto details at the knee and thigh are super fun and flattering!  I swear they suck you in, which I’m totally ok with haha 🙂blog-faux-fur-lined-bomber-jacket-rag-bone-moto-jeans-frye-harness-3 And don’t get me started on these boots.  I still can’t believe my luck in scoring them.  They are BEYOND comfy, as all Frye boots are!

On me…

Jacket- Thrifted for $12!! (Similar here).
Sweater- Michael Stars (thrifted for $3.50, similar here)
Jeans- Rag & Bone (thrifted for $6.50!)
Boots- Frye 12″ Harness boots (thrifted for $10!! They were in the men’s section!!)
Keeping it Real…
Not much in the way of keeping it real on this post.  I literally took these in 5 minutes in an alley near my house.  Get-er-done!  haha.
As a side note, does anyone have anything in particular they’d like to see??
I’m all ears!!

Neutral Shades…

 I bet you’re thinking…”I think I’ve seen that outfit recently…?”  Ok, yes.  It’s the oatmeal version of the Zara Boyfriend sweater that I wore last week.  I LOVE IT!  Am I the only one that buys things in multiple colors when you find something you love?  Especially if it’s on sale?!  Anyway.  So comfy, and I love the elbow patches.

Side note-don’t you just want to squeeze her (obviously, I do!)??  Since I take all these with a self timer, I don’t really know what she’s doing until later.  GAH!!  I could just eat her up.Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-1 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-2 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-3 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-4 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-5 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-6 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-7 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-8 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-9On me…

Dinner with the Huz’s boss…

The Huz’s boss came into town last night from Chicago, and took us out to a nice dinner.  I was all excited to get a little dressed up, and even had some options picked out (duh)!  Then…got a call a few hours before go time.  “So, we got done with our meetings early.  He wants to go back to the hotel and change into jeans.”

What??  Jeans?  Conservative?  BOSS??

So…nothing fancy, but here’s what I wore.Blog Moth Anthropologie Sweater Community Denim Frye Boots-1Blog Moth Anthropologie Sweater Community Denim Frye Boots-2Blog Moth Anthropologie Sweater Community Denim Frye Boots-3Blog Moth Anthropologie Sweater Community Denim Frye Boots-4Blog Moth Anthropologie Sweater Community Denim Frye Boots-5Blog Moth Anthropologie Sweater Community Denim Frye Boots-6And, earlier, this is what M wore.

Do you ever have those days when you feel so overwhelmed with work, kids, and LIFE that the last thing you want to think about is “what am I going to wear?”??  Yeah, me too!! 🙂

Gray Frye Booties…what do I do with you?

I bought these boots a while ago, and thought they were perfect!  Until…I tried to mix them into outfits.  The color is a little light… I can’t quite figure out a color scheme that works with them.  After many attempts, I figured I’d just go for it and see how it looked on camera.  It really is funny how I’ll see something in the mirror and think it looks good, but when I take pictures of it, I think….what was I thinking??  Kind of makes me feel bad for celebrities.  Kind of… 😉

That is one of the things I’m really liking about doing this blog.  The experimenting… Trying outfits I might not have tried before.  Well, that, and actually just getting out of my work out clothes and taking a shower haha 🙂Blog Design History Cardigan Joes Jeans Frye Booties-1 Blog Design History Cardigan Joes Jeans Frye Booties-2 Blog Design History Cardigan Joes Jeans Frye Booties-3 Blog Design History Cardigan Joes Jeans Frye Booties-4This face makes me forget all about bootie woes 🙂 Blog Design History Cardigan Joes Jeans Frye Booties-5 Blog Design History Cardigan Joes Jeans Frye Booties-6 Blog Design History Cardigan Joes Jeans Frye Booties-7She kept going up and down this driveway.  Up…and down.  Up…and down.  Don’t you wish it was that easy to find joy as an adult? 🙂 Blog Design History Cardigan Joes Jeans Frye Booties-8 Blog Design History Cardigan Joes Jeans Frye Booties-9So…I’d welcome any suggestions on how to wear these boots!  I LOVE them, but they have just been sitting on my shelf :{.  They need to be worn!

Can we just pretend I took a shower?

Ok, good.  Now let’s carry on.  🙂

Ever since starting this blog, I’ve started dressing up a little more than I have since I started working from home (which was 6 years ago).  The Huz is really liking that part 🙂  I’ve always had the other clothes, but kind of fell into a rut.  When you work from home, are a stay at home mom, or in my case both, it can just be easier to stay in your sweats haha.  Most days, I don’t take my shower until later in the day, which means hair in a bun…  All that said, I feel SO much better about myself when I do get out of my sweats and actually put some thought into my clothes.  Even if I don’t make it into the shower haha 🙂

So, I may not have taken a shower, nor put a lot of thought into my outfit, but at least I’m not in my sweats 🙂blog H&M Army coat J Brand Jeans Black Frye Harness Boots-2 blog H&M Army coat J Brand Jeans Black Frye Harness Boots-3Oh, but wait…at least we don’t match!1Maya 103 weeks rain boots vest-1On me…
