183.







It was fairly cold today for a picnic, which is where we went today. Cold weather equals layers! Not gonna lie, I'm excited for fall to start. I really felt good in this outfit - it's quirky, feminine and is ME. Notice my hair growing? Yeah. I'm getting rid of my bangs, I think I said this last time but I've been doing my hair like this and I've gotten compliments. I also kind of miss looking at my eyebrows. I found bangs as a cop-out and excuse not to pluck.





Blouse Thrifted | Skirt Ricki's | Cardigan American Apparel | Belt ASOS | Socks Jacob | Shoes Forever 21 | Glasses Derek Cardigan

This outfit in particular is composed of a bunch of bargains! This shirt was from $2.99 at Goodwill, the skirt was brand new on sale at Ricki's for $5 and the belt itself that seems to pop up at a bunch of my outfits was $10 on sale at the ASOS sale. It's $6.95 now if you guys are interested, I think I just may buy a backup one in case this one gets worn out!

It's all work no play right now, guys. I'm so busy. I actually have to get back to work ... among my other 4 jobs. I'll catch you all later!

Until next time.

  7. Oh my goodness. So much cuteness going on in this outfit! That belt... those shoes... that cardigan... that BLOUSE... I really need to expand my collection of colorful, floral blouses. Most of my tops are very plain, neutral colors. I heart your blog!

  9. Right away I noticed your hair change, you kind of look like a different person. But it's really pretty!
    I had cut my bangs too short at the beginning of Summer and waited for what felt like forever for them to grow out, and now that they are in a good place I figured I'd let them keep growing. It's fun to change looks without a lot of effort.

    I also second that this outfit is totally you! I'm loving the way the bright cardigan picks up the color from the flowers. :)

    This outfit is perfection! I smiled real big when I came across your post! ;) I'm jealous of your cardigan weather. We are having a random head wave in Vancouver and it's throwing me off, haha.

  16. I always loved your bang but I must admit that this clipped to the side look is everything to me! So jealous that your hair grows at that speed! My bangs took a year to grow out :(

    You look adorable as per usual, this look IS very you! 3

  17. Ugh. I hate that my hair grows so fast with my bangs but not anywhere else. :( Bangs are hard to maintain, I tell you what.

    Thanks Franceta. <3
