I used to not really wear many scarves. Then I moved to the coldest place I’ve ever lived (Pullman, WA) for school and I about died. Give me all the scarves, I said.
Since then, I’ve added a few new ones each year to my arsenal. They keep my neck warm. They’re cute. They make accessorizing an outfit super easy since you basically don’t need to wear jewelry.
When my friend Stef mentioned she was going to start up her Etsy shop again, I was really excited. I don’t know anyone who has enough time to be able to make me scarves, and there are so many sellers to choose from on Etsy that I get overwhelmed and close the window. She’s really talented, and even offers to make custom pieces!
She sent me over this fun fringy triangle scarf, mentioning that though she loves the style, a lot of her customers just don’t know how to style them. So, challenge accepted. Here are three ways I styled her Autumn Triangle Scarf. Give her some love on Etsy, won’t you? And just for this month, Stef is offering free shipping on anything in her store! Hurry, this offer expires on November 30th!
3 Ways to Wear a Triangle Scarf
I’ve had so much fun thrift shopping the past few months with Seattle Goodwill. I’ve found some really great pieces (enough to make two oversized sweater outfits… my favorite fall staple!) that have incorporated well into my wardrobe, and I’ve rekindled my love of the thrift. Now, as much as I love a good thrift find… I’m sure you’ve been burned before. I know I have. And I almost got burned with something in this very outfit. Have you ever found the perfect vintage item only to get it home and realized… it’s not so perfect? Like maybe you get a certain pair of boots home and a certain liner falls out? Yeah that would never happen…
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. Continue reading
I don’t think it’s a big secret that I enjoy exercising as much as I enjoy getting my teeth drilled (which luckily has only happened once, and I no longer have those teeth so…) But what I do love is wearing work out clothes as soon as I get home from work. Don’t lie, I know you know what I mean. You get home, and the first, second, or third thing you do is strip off the uncomfortable bras and skinny jeans and into something… well, actually it is kind of tight, but in a much more forgiving and comfortable way. Yes, I’m talking about yoga pants.
No, I don’t do yoga. Not yet anyways.
But I can pretend in my yoga leggings that I basically live in on the weekends and have even figured out how to add into my rotations for work wear. With the cold season upon us, I figured now is as good as time as any to share my secrets for where I find my trusty leggings, yoga or otherwise, and for when I am dragged to the gym by certain people who shall not be named, what I like to wear.
5 Places for Great Activewear
The life of a fashion blogger is not easy when it starts getting dark at 6pm and you have a full-time job… and you leave the office at 6pm. Clearly I am not used to this mayhem, and thus have no photos of my own for you today. But, now that I know, I’m going to try to better plan in advance. Can’t it just get dark at 8pm year round? I like that better.
But, I’ve been shopping a lot as usual (though not actually spending much of my own money, I’ve actually been doing pretty good this month!) and have a round-up of some of my favorite items that really scream “FALL!” to me. Continue reading
