The Cape Blazer

I feel as if this is the mullet of blazers; business in the front, party in the back. Costume party. But, hey! I liked wearing it. I’m a blazer fanatic anyway, so this addition was perfect. It’s also forty percent off right now, and I’m jealous about that. So, go check it out!

Peasant Prices & Blogging

Okay, the wedges are at least. They already were a great price and now they’re on sale too. So, go check them out. As for my lax blogging. It’s my camera’s fault…my friend’s fault…my…my…my…

I’ll do better.

I’ve had a hectic few weeks, and let me tell you, there’s this period of impossible fashion blogging in Washington state. Why? Because while the rest of the country is experiencing full fledged summer, here in the PNW we are still experiencing winterish spring? So, anything I post would be from last year’s winter wardrobe. So, excuse my slower posts, things will pick up when summer treats us all fairly. Also, I’m trying to just balance out right now. If that means less blogging and more writing-so be it. I’d like to share more blogging things with you too. Fashion and feelings are my forte, yes?

There have been some home projects we’ve had to work on like flooring, and deciding if we want to invest in the backyard, or if we are selling. I’ve had my eye on another house. We live in a development now. I have an amazing view of the Cascades, and I love my location since I am a few minutes away from the kid’s school, but I’ve been wanting something a little more private for a while now. Somewhere I can put dragons on my fence, and have a yard that neighbors can’t see into. I came to Washington for peace, and while I’ve mostly found it, I’ve discovered that in my line of work I need a certain sense of separation from people to maintain that peace. So, whilst I try to adjust to a new balance of work, and home, and decisions, I’ll be spreading out all of my extra curricular activities and depending on the week you may see more or less of them.

Bad

I’ve been looking for a green  bag for a long time. People get really excited about this one when I wear it. The bad news is you can’t get it stateside. So, I found a kelly green hobo and linked that for you. Otherwise, my shoes are on sale!  The really unique thing about these wedges are that they have a velcro strap at the ankle. They are comfortable and sturdy, and for someone like me who has wobbly ankles they’re a great thing.I’ve yet to fall down in them. Anyway, I know it’s Monday but I hope it’s a decent one. I’ve  had to do some soul searching this weekend. Soul purging? Soul cleansing? It’s not purged, or cleansed, or found. My best friend did tell me I need to take up yoga, smoke lots of weed, or have a seance. Honestly, the last thing I’m willing to do is yoga. So…

Metallic Summer

I am in-love with all sneakers this summer: wedges, flats, sporty, pretty. I saw them worn so many different ways in Europe I came back with sneaker envy. My friend Karina got me hooked on Ash shoes so I grabbed these metallics (which are so comfortable). Unfortunately, the wedges sold out really quickly, but they have the flats in stock. And how about these white Joe jeans on sale. They’re 50% off so hurry!

Touristy

Here’s great news, my designer jeans are on sale for 40% off. I’m a pretty big fan of these since they have great stretch and are super comfortable. The wash is also flattering. That’s a strange thing to say but it’s true. They have all the right spots on your legs highlighted. It’s like contouring for jeans. Do you have anything by Splendid yet? the softest cotton tops that you can wash over and over and never see any wear on. You are going to hurt a little with the price tag, but I’ve been purchasing Splendid for five years now and my oldest tops still look brand new. Anyway, these photos were taken in Rome on vacation. I refused to use the elevator while I was there and only did the stairs. I would also do extra trips up and down the stairs for exercise (we were on the fifth floor). Guess what? I still put on a bajillion pounds and though my butt is hard like a rock, it is large like a boulder. Fail. Lucky I have stretchy jeans!

Red Ryder

That’s his nickname. Surprisingly he’s the one who volunteers to model for my fashion blog. Scarlet, is mostly disinterested. She spends most afternoons in a strict classroom atmosphere, wearing fake plastic reading glasses, and teaching her dolls to read.

Ryder likes clothes. He will wear anything with insects or animals on it, so these shorts were a hit. I linked you below.

Flats & Blazers

Ripped jeans, ripped jeans. ripped jeans. Shit up with your ripped jeans, Tarryn. Mmkay. I tried to look a little bit professional since some of you asked for outfits you can wear to work? My suggestion is always flats with print and lightweight blazers. And adding a statement piece necklace can change the whole look of an outfit. I don’t wear them because they look too happy. Lucky for you my blazer is on SALE for under $27.00! And so are my Michael Kors leopard flats. I included some other leopard flat options. Just so you know the Crocs are SO comfortable. Yes, Crocs! Happy Shopping. When in doubt, be edgy.

Free the Stripes

All the sales, guys! My Free People top is 40% off right now. So is my Miranda tote! You hardly ever find a Miranda for that price, true story. By the way, I almost returned my new Kate Spade shoes after they arrived in the mail. I tried them on and decided they were uncomfortable right away. But, I have to tell you after wearing them all day (and walking all the places with my nature loving boyfriend) they didn’t hurt one bit. As it turns out they’re incredibly comfortable, and I have an intense love relationship with black and white stripes (you should see my house). And hey! If you’re in a warmer climate I linked you to the exact same top but sleeveless! (also on sale)
