Well, I finally bit the bullet. I bought a tripod. I really didn’t want to, as I always feel like tripod shots just don’t feel the same. But you know what? I don’t think they’re that bad. While the location isn’t stellar (sorry, I only had a few minutes before work… #notamorningperson) things can only go up from here. I promise to not post sucky tripod shots too often, but when it starts getting dark in the morning and at 4pm, no promises.
In other news, I’m kind of obsessed with this sweater. Dave calls it my “Golden Girls Sweater.” He’s so sweet.But really, I think that’s quite the compliment, considering Golden Girls would probably make my top 20 TV shows of all time. I’m a Sophia for sure. I aspire to be just like her when I’m old.
You may recognize it from my September budget post, and was one of the few things I kept from the Altuzarra Target line. The thing I like about this particular sweater material is that it’s not the pilling kind. It’s more of a flat knit, and won’t get all fuzzy and gross looking after a few wears. Does that bum anyone else out? I had that happen last season to a Catherine Malandrino for Kohl’s sweater, and it broke my heart.
On a much happier note, Happy Halloween! I can’t believe it’s here already. No outfit for me this year, I did think about it though. I’ll be dressing as a crazy dog lady this evening at home, wearing my fox leggings and watching Hocus Pocus and/or Paranorman on repeat. I wish I could say I’ll be doing something as fun as answering the door for trick or treaters… but we have never had a trick or treater! Such a bummer.
What I’m Wearing
Sweater: Altuzarra Target
Jeans: LC Lauren Conrad
Booties: Sole Society
Jacket: Lucky Brand, on sale via 6PM
What are you up to for Halloween? Hope everyone has a spooktacular weekend!
Being compared to a Golden Girl is always a compliment, duh :) Haha and I think your tripod pics look great!
Haha, my thoughts exactly! Thanks Chelsea! :)
Your Altazurra Sweater is so pretty and unique. I am a huge fan of sweaters with animals and of birds. Gorgeous coat too. And I like your versatile, neutral booties. I own some similar ones myself.
Have a Happy Halloween Jen!
Pleasure stopping by again. Welcome by when you can. <3 Ada.
Thanks so much Ada, I’m loving the sweater too. I hope you and Vivian had a lovely Halloween as well! :)
Such a great outfit overall! Dave just doesn’t appreciate that sweater haha
Haha, he loves to make fun of me for my grandma style… I’m also a big fan of Murder She Wrote, bahaha. ;)
Your sweater is beautiful! I love that whole outfit, especially the jacket. :)
Thanks Olya! I’m really loving the jacket too. I’ve been wearing it as much as possible before it’s not warm enough for the weather!
Cute shirt, but I LOVE those booties and the jacket! Great outfit.
Thanks so much, Andrea! :)
Oh my gosh, I love your boots! How perfect for fall !!!
Thanks Summer! I’m definitely a big fan of them, they’re super comfortable and easy to walk in. :)
I’m not usually a fan of booties but I LOVE THOSE BOOTIES.
Haha, thanks Becca! They’re comfortable too!
I think these turned out great!! maybe it just takes some time getting used to using a tripod. :)
Aw, thanks Esther! It’s definitely different, I accidentally got my remote in several of the shots. Definitely a learning process!
OMG, I love these pictures! I’ve been wanting to get a tripod myself for a long time, but I keep putting it off. I also love your booties! You make me want to get some for myself :)
Thanks Moana! I’d been doing the same… finally with the crappy weather, I decided it was time! Thanks, these booties are seriously comfortable. I wore them on Thursday to move our office furniture for about 8 hours and my feet didn’t fall off! ;)
Such a cute detail on your top! :)
Hope you learn to love using your tripod too! I find having the tripod a lot easier than trying to balance my camera on things, haha! :)
So good! I wanted the black button down shirt & black pencil skirt combo dress – but it was sold only online & sold out within minutes…
Thanks Kim! Some of the items went crazy fast! I ordered a ton of stuff but ended up being disappointed in the majority of it, I kept this and the fringe scarf.
OMG STOP I LOVE THAT OUTFIT
Haha, thanks girl! :)
I absolutely adore that sweater, and those boots! And who doesn’t love the Golden Girls? Classic.
My thoughts exactly Ree, I took it as a compliment! ;)
Great outfit! Love the jacket and your booties! I need to get a tripod at some point too but keep stalling.. Maybe one of these days! Enjoy :)
Thanks Trish! I stalled for a nearly a year, I think it was a good and inexpensive investment though! :)
