Forgot to check the camera settings, so face = blurry, but jacket buttons = sharp as can be!
Gap Outlet army jacket
Talla t-shirt (promptly discarded after today because it's so old it's gross)
J. Crew Factory ombre purple/blue scarf
Converse white Chucks
A few other things
(1) I really am sorry that I was away so long! I can't wait to check in on your blogs and see what you've been up to - I really missed this community! My week was busy, but I'm glad things are a little settled now and I can get back into a routine (not to mention getting on top of losing the 5+ pounds I know I gained...)
(2) I know I missed doing a budget post on the first of the month, but never fear - it is in the works and will be posted tomorrow!
(3) I'm slightly changing the way I'm detailing my outfits - I'm no longer going to put the prices of everything, because (a) sometimes things are old and I just can't remember, and (b) it doesn't really help anyone to know that I spent $20 on a scarf 3 years ago. I think it might be more fun to do a few posts about how to get great deals while shopping now, and of course I'll still do budget posts so you can see how I shop and keep costs down as much as I can, but the daily cost breakdown isn't that helpful so I'm going to cut it out of the lineup. Additionally, I'm not planning to link to a lot of "similar" or "alternate" items for each post, because honestly, it takes a ton of time to find replacements for everything I'm wearing when a lot of it is either basic or old/not available anymore. I am more than happy to help find alternatives to special items though, so feel free to let me know if I do show something that's not available and you'd like some help shopping around for it! :)
Phew, okay, now that that's all out there, tell me how your week has been! I missed you guys - what have you been doing/wearing/seeing? As for me, as I mentioned, I'm trying to get back into a good routine this week before my birthday on the 12th, and I'm super excited that some fall tv favorites are back - Dexter, Homeland, Hoarders, Intervention, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report... it's a good thing I can blog while I sit on my ass watching tv at home, otherwise my little break would probably be infinitely extended!
