mini + grids.

 What a month last week was, huh? I think anyone who's been paying attention to what's been happening in the United States (and our country's entire legacy) will agree with this apt reaction to the siege on the Capitol: "disappointed, but not surprised." We've got a lot of work to do, America.

And now, an outfit post.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: thrifted
Leggings: Old Navy
Boots: Nordstrom, old gift
Barrettes: TwoTusksCo.

I've been cutting my own bangs for a bit now, I hope you can't tell. 

Stay safe & take care of yourselves.

little starbursts.

 I guess I really have a plaid theme going on lately, but it's totally unintentional.

What I'm wearing:
Top: thrifted
Skirt: Harkel Clothing
Shoes: Dr. Scholls via DSW
Earrings: Baublebar

I thrifted this plaid shirt back in March I think (before lockdown) and it's sooooo soft. It has some interesting details (like random buttons at the bottom on the back, I cannot figure out what purpose those serve) but it's versatile. 

Also, this is the longest my hair has been in actual years. Good thing I've gotten good at cutting my own bangs!

green + plaid.

 Happy New Year! We're continuing with the plaid theme for today's outfit!

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Smak Parlour via Donna's Dress Shop
Shoes: DSW
Earrings: vintage via Diament Jewelry

I kept this outfit pretty simple because this dress doesn't really need much. I love the collar (obviously), the sleeve length, and the pockets! I also discovered that the brand Smak Parlour has recently gone out of business, which is sad. (Correction: just their store, not the whole brand!) I have to say, I don't even remember how I originally found Donna's Dress Shop on Instagram, but I cannot say enough good things about them! Their shipping is so fast, they have a great selection, and Instagram Story sales. They have a mix of vintage and vintage-inspired, and in a big range of sizes. 

Let me know your favorite vintagey shops!

plaid pinafore.

 I'm not sure when it happened, but at some point pinafores made a bit of a comeback. They have a ton of different names: jumper, skirtall, etc., but lately I've been all about them. 

Bonus Gizmo appearance.

What I'm wearing:
Pinafore: Hell Bunny via Poshmark
Turtleneck: H&M
Boots: Target
Necklace: J.Crew via eBay

I almost bought this pinafore new from Hell Bunny, but then I found one in my size, new with tags, on Poshmark! There are so many pieces of clothing that are new with tags (or new without tags) on secondhand sites like Poshmark and Thredup, so I've been trying to go there first when I'm looking for something specific. 

Speaking of finding things secondhand, I had coveted this necklace ever since Adina from Blue Collar Red Lipstick wore it and after some ebay sleuthing, I found it and snagged it! It was more than I'd usually pay for a necklace, but it was the only listing, and it's a very unique and well made piece. So expect to see it a lot more as I get my money's worth!

I've made one jumper style dress so far (yet to make an appearance on this here blog) but I've got at least 2 more in my sewing queue now.

holiday chic at home.

 This month has just flown by, honestly. I've been so busy baking cookies, sewing gifts, and shipping things out that blogging fell by the wayside a bit. But, I've still been fairly active over on Instagram, and even participated in my first style challenge! This one was called Holiday Chic at Home and was hosted by @styledbyempris and @4myform. It was a lot of fun and I'm pretty happy with how my outfits turned out, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite looks here. You can see the prompts here
