Guys, I’m kicking myself. I waited too long to post this velour duster by Leith and it sold out. I wanted to share it with you too, because I adore it. I pulled up some similar dusters and the good news is that I found some great ones that are under $30! I probably have about a dozen dusters in my closet. I especially like the lightweight ones for spring. Did any of you watch Highlander back in the day? I’ve had a duster obsession since that show. If you’re on the short side and you’re concerned about the length of a duster I’d encourage you to buy a mid-calf length and then wear a platform heel. Hey, short people problems are a real thing. My jeans are on sale so make sure you check those out too. Have a wonderful, productive week.
Ahh, the softness of this sweatshirt. New Romance reminded me of a literary quest many of us writers made four years ago. Indie publishing was on the rise and a handful of writing pioneers set out to publish a new kind of romance. We were tired of rejection letters, tired of being told that what we were writing wasn’t publishable. It seems kind of silly now that publishers rejected books about college aged kids, as if their stories weren’t relevant. Most of the big things in my life happened during the four years I spent getting a college degree. Nevertheless we persisted. We published our rejected books on our own (thanks to the help of Amazon) and they did so well that publishers couldn’t ignore us anymore. They coined the genre New Adult and it thrived. Today New Adult books are widely accepted and quite favored among readers. The readers spoke! Sometimes the artists know better than the gatekeepers, eh? Anyway, love this slouchy, soft sweatshirt. And I have so many things in my wardrobe this color you’d think I’d lost my edge. I’m just embracing the romantic dusty pinks.
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 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.
