Grey Sweater & Black Pencil Skirt

Front Outfit Pic

How Fall professional is this outfit, guys? I'm in love with tucked in sweaters and I'm so happy I invested in this one a few years ago. This sweater is one of the only pieces of clothing I've ever paid full price for at Anthropologie. We all know, I'm a frugal gal but I knew if I bought this sweater, it would be my friend for a long long time. As you can see, it's back for another year...

Thrifted Red Leather Jacket & Blanket Scarf

front of outfit

There's nothing more that I love than a thrifted or secondhard leather jacket. First off, it gives something old a brand new life. Two, who doesn't love a gorgeous vintage jacket? 

This jacket screams 1980s Michael Jackson. With it's bright vibrant color, mild shoulder pads and tiny front silver chain zip-pocket. I've spoken a lot about My Staple Black Leather Jacket. You've seen me wear it in a number of posts (I'll put some below for you crazy kids to enjoy). Even though my love is endless for that black zip up, this red guy has a special place in my heart.

Thrifted Blazer & Victorian Top

front of outfit

Another amazing thrift find, friends! I mean, check out this blazer. Love, right? This find was from a local Value Village that I frequent and it was less than $15. Which, is a bargain considering all I did was get it dry cleaned immediately after my purchase.

Cozy & Warm Fall Favorites 2018

Vision Board for Fall

It's been nothing but drizzling here, in our Seattle. The sunrise is later and the sunset is earlier. Soon, we'll be headed into "vampire season", as we affectionately call it. I've been working on this montage for a bit too long, primarily because I didn't know what to call it. At the end of the day I went with Warm & Cozy because that's the vibe I get from my vision picture above. However, it was inspired by a "staycation/me day" concept. Especially after adding that weekend sweater by Barefoot Dreams.

This would be a terrific day in, wouldn't it?

Travel Bug: 48 Hours in Coupeville, WA (Whidbey Island)

Walking on this Shore in Coupeville, WA

Last month, we took a family trip. Nothing but relaxation, family time, adventures in a small town and board game victories! We had agreed to take a long, well deserved, weekend out to Whidbey Island as Summer turned to Autumn. Whidbey is about an hour and a half just north of Seattle. It's an actual island and you can take one of the ferries there. Not taking the ferry results in an additional hour drive but to cross Deceptions Pass bridge is worth it. We, for the sake of time, took the ferry.
