Keep Holding On

Hello there! Sorry for the lack of update yesterday. My outfit...fell apart. Well, not really. It more-so grew than anything. You see, I've lost a bit of weight so some of my clothes fit a bit strangely. I put on skinny jegging-esque jeans and a cardigan (buttoned up, of course), and everything was swell. Everything fit allright. But as the day dragged on, and boy did it drag, my clothes started to grow and stretch. By five-o-clock, it looked as though I had shrunk (I didn't for the record). So I deemed the outfit un-photographable and changed into pajamas. BUT, I'm back today with a non-growing outfit! Hooray!

Shirt: Thrift, Skirt and Trench: H&M, Belt: Target, Boots: Delia's, Purple socks that you can barely see: We Love Colors

Today is the first day of October, and, appropriately, it's the first day I deemed cold enough to wear a jacket. Since it was still tropical-stormy out I went for some darker colors, mainly in the skirt. I just got two pairs of little socks (in purple and ivory) from we love colors that I'm looking forward to pairing with heels and oxfords, but I put the purple pair on with boots today since they happened to match the flowers on my shirt well. You can barely see them peeking out, but I thought it was a nice little unexpected pop of purple.

I also did a little bit of thrifting today! I headed up to a new Goodwill that seriously just opened. It was super clean, organized, and big, which was nice. The only problem I really had with it was there were a lot of "sample" items from big name stores like Ann Taylor and Target. Don't get me wrong, I loves me some cheap Ann Taylor Loft tops, but a lot of the shirts had "SAMPLE" written on the back in what seemed like sharpie marker, and I wasn't sure the stain would come out so I didn't get any of those. I did, however get a cute floral belt (that it looks like someone handpainted), a gray blazer (FINALLY), and a cozy sweater, all of which seemed to be donated by people rather than stores. I can't wait to wear them/show them to you guys! I also explored the AMAZING home decor department, which had so many cute, kitschy items. I took a few pictures of my favorites:

Tiny to tiny utensils!

And an adorable Pooh Bear mug that I wanted so bad.

Anyway, I have a WHOLE mess of work that I need to be doing but don't want to, which is causing me to feel overwhelmed. Hopefully I can find at least some time to relax this weekend. I hope you all have lovely relaxing weekends :)



  1. I can't believe you braved the day today and looked fabulous! I took one look at the weather and decided I was going to stay in my jammies and just hang out in bed, haha.

    That trench coat is so cute. I need to get one for myself. I love it buttoned up! It fits you so nice. And that's great about the weight loss but boo about the baggy clothes. ♥ You go, girl!

  2. That pooh bear mug is amazing!
    I think theres something about trench coats that make any outfit 10x more chic, and you look amazing. Well done on your weight loss but having to get a whole new wardrobe must be a little irritating. at least, it's an excuse for shopping. Love all the different colours here and your shirt is lovely!

  3. This is suuuuuch a cute outfit! I love the blue of your skirt and those boots are amazing! <3 I have so much work this weekend, too-- hopefully we can both finally relax. Have a lovely day, my pretty! :)

  4. Heck yes it's Friday, you've got to enjoy at least a little bit of time to yourself :) Fantastic trench btw, I am so jealous that there's no H&M near where I live!

  5. i am in love with your skirt! it looks wonderful paired with your trench coat!

  6. What a cute outfit! I love that jacket and those boots! It's a perfect transitional outfit from summer to fall :)

  7. I'm really digging the neutral trench coat with that shade of blue. And oh my goodness to your falling-apart outfit story. This is why I am convinced that jeggings (or stretchy jeans in general) are not meant as investment items. I don't know how to get them to unstretch after wearing them!

  8. i love the jacket paired with the boots , u look good in this how wonderful to put off weight i am hoping i can lose some weight to fit in some of my skirts that
