Here is another weekly outfit post. I’ve been trying to keep up with the October challenge, but it’s been a bit busy around here! Here are some of the outfits I did manage to get pictures of though.
October 19 was “fave fall piece” so I picked my new orange cardigan. Pairing it with this older Modcloth dress worked pretty well, and my Blundstones are a no-brainer! In the past I have struggled with styling this dress, although I think I have finally figured it out!I have been debating covering up that odd point of the skirt fabric near the waist with some black to match the top part. Thoughts?
On Wednesday, the theme was “secondhand style” so I wore this braided belt that used to belong to my dad. Lately I have been trying to embrace a new fashion philosophy: I will wear what I want, regardless of how stylish it may or may not be. For example, I reeeeeeally wanted to wear this summery dress (see it here) over my orange skirt because I thought the colours would look nice. Wearing long tops over long skirt is not really something I see a lot of ladies doing, so I debated going out like this because I didn’t want to look weird. And, it’s fall, so wearing a lot of white may not be seasonally appropriate. Even though I loved this outfit, I had doubts when putting it on. Looking in my full length mirror, I was still unsure, but when my husband saw it and didn’t say anything like “that looks a little off”, I decided to wear it to youth group. I’m so glad I did, because I personally think it looks awesome:) AND I was so comfy.
My hair, however, is another story! It has been the source of a lot of frustration lately, since my bangs are still so much shorter than the rest of my hair. I pulled them up for a quick fishtail braid on either side of my part, then attached the ends together with an elastic. My husband was surprisingly impressed with this style!
Yesterday the outfit challenge was “something old”, so I wore my favourite green tee shirt for a long day of cooking and chores. Friends of ours gave us dozens of plums, so I have slowly been using them to make jam, plum butter, and baked goods. Yesterday I FINALLY emptied the fridge of the last plum, and will now be able to enjoy their deliciousness into winter. I also tested out a new pumpkin cookie recipe that will be making an appearance on the blog soon.
Have a great weekend!
