I wasn’t even going to do a post today, but I felt compelled to share this sweater with you. I stopped to pull it off the rack because of its unique rounded hemline. Most sweaters nowadays have the square boxy cut on the bottom so it was a fun change of sweater pace. Not to mention its thick and soft and I want to wear it every day forever. Anyway, have a fabulous weekend. We are taking the kids to see The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at the Children’s Theater. I take them about once a month to see a play and since they loved the movie they begged to go to this one.
So, this week I was supposed to be cruising the Bahamas with my readers, but that nasty cuss, hurricane Matthew decided to tear through Florida, ruining our plans and sending the state into emergency preparation. Josh and I spent our day in Seattle tracking the storm and texting friends who were getting ready for the category four hurricane. Though missing the chance to hang out for four days with my readers makes me sad, the devastation many people will face puts things into perspective. I am thinking about and praying for all of you.
I traded my shorts and bikinis in for sweaters and boots. This doesn’t make me sad since we all know how I feel about summer shit. Happy Fall y’all! Josh and I are going to buy Christmas decorations tomorrow. Don’t judge me. He has the week off of work and OHMYGODILOVECHRISTMASSOMUCH!
Here’s my outfit. I love, love, love these pants by blogger Sincerely Jules. So flattering and comfortable. And my cardigan/coat speaks for itself. I never want to take it off it’s so soft.
I wasn’t even going to take the camera with on the day I wore this outfit, but Josh said I looked Guise of the Villain. So here is a villainous outfit. I guess. Why did I call this post Black Bat? It’s Scarlet’s favorite Jack White song and she made us play it all day. Tip, if you have a lot of hair try wearing men’s fedoras. They’re the only hats that work for me because I can’t stuff my hair into women’s hats. They always look awkward and half way through the day they look ready to pop off. I also tend to prefer straw hats in the summer. So, hey, hey! Links below.
I remember bitching about Monday and now it’s Monday again. How does this keep happening? For most of you it’s a holiday. A depressing holiday. Is that why they give us all of these sales, to distract us from how sad today is? Today we remember people who died, here is fifty percent off… Also, enjoy your BBQ.
Anyway, my Docs are my new favorite thing. I have a ton of Doc Martens, but these are the most kick ass pair I’ve ever owned. Link below.
It’s hard knocks for those of us living in chilly, wintery states. Spring is here, but the warmth is not. For those of you who know me, you know I’m not really complaining. It just makes blogging hard since half of you want short sleeves, and half are still in limbo likes yours truly. Either way I am a dress girl. Hard to believe, I know. But, in spring and summer dresses are all I wear. So, I found this swing dress that I can wear in spring (and next fall). It’s a lightweight material so it’s not too warm, and it comes in a couple colors. I included a more affordable version (it’s on sale for under $26.00!) If you’re in warmer climate flats would be very cute with this. Puppy not included.
So, there are these stripes…
I love them. I have so many plans for this striped tee: blazers, shorts, skirts. My pants are from All Saints and they’re my favorite. And my jacket is something I picked up in Australia last year, the brand is UGG. I listed a similar one, and also a more affordable look-alike.
So, every time I’m in Seattle I find a new corner or street I’ve never seen before. I love that. Oh the sushi Seattle has to offer! I had a roll called Ponies and Unicorns, and it was delicious. Aside from the excellent food, mild climate, and overall beauty of my city, there is an acceptance of artistic personalities that I found so welcoming. No one raises eyebrows at you for…well…being you. I hope you make time in your life to visit one day. I’m very proud to call Washington my home.
So, these pants…
I love them. But beware, if you purchase they do run big. I normally wear a size 28 in pants and I bought a 26 in these. I also listed my boots and some affordable options.
