I'm kind of running into an accidental monochrome trend with these September work outfits...

What I'm wearing:
Sweater: TJ Maxx
Dress: H&M
Wedges: Dr. Scholl's via DSW
Necklace: Etsy

I look super unenthused in these photos, but I swear I was just tired. I loooove this dress—it was one that I saw at H&M, didn't buy, kept thinking about it, and went back and bought it. Glad that I did. Also, I cannot believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving!

lace & grey.

These aren't the best photos, but I like this outfit.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Loft
Blazer: Loft via Poshmark
Shoes: BC Footwear via DSW
Necklace: Baublebar

Somehow I always forget about these shoes, but they're actually quite comfortable, and pretty versatile too. This is my standard lazy work outfit: blazer, dress, cute shoes.

fancy floral

Remember that Garden Party? Here's what I wore!

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Amazon
Shoes: DSW
Earrings: LouLou

I wish I'd gotten some detail shots, but honestly, I was exhausted. Hosting a party, even for 12, takes a lot out of you.

houndstooth & burgundy.

Another outfit from long before it was tights weather...

081517x1 081517x2 081517x3 081517x4 081517x5
What I'm wearing:
Sweater: Target, old
Top: H&M
Skirt: Loft
Shoes: Old Navy
Bee ring: flea market

I think I need to recycle this outfit again soon because I do like how it turned out—it's a bit monochromatic, but the houndstooth pattern and the accessories make it more interesting.

review: cruelty free shampoo from Maple Holistics

The lovely folks at Maple Holistics recently sent me their Tea Tree Oil Shampoo to try and review—I've been using it for a few weeks now and I'm really happy with it! I've been trying to gradually change all my personal care products to cruelty free options, so I was thrilled to hear that Maple Holistics is cruelty free and all natural.

This shampoo is tea tree oil and lavender, so one thing to note is it has a very strong scent that takes a little getting used to. It's very cleansing, but not overly drying, which is great—my hair is always very soft after using it. I'm curious to try some of their other formulas, and see if I can find a cruelty free conditioner to work in tandem with this shampoo.

Maple Holistics has products for hair, skin, and body care for women (& men) so I'm definitely going to try a few other products so that I can phase out my big brand (not cruelty free) items. 

What are some of your favorite cruelty free skin or haircare brands?

Thank you to Maple Holistics for sending me this product in exchange for a review.
