This outfit is called - I wanted to wear things I haven't worn in a while. All these pieces haven't been getting much love lately. This is partly because I haven't been going anywhere and because I wore some of them a LOT when I first got them so I end up passing by them. When it comes to the Ancient Greek Sandals that's because I have 10 pairs....whoops! The only piece I'm still unsure of is the shorts. They just seem a little too big, especially in photos. But they're comfy and keep me cool on hot days so I keep them around.

I'm writing this post on Monday November 2nd, the day before Election Day, dreading what is to come in the next few weeks. But at least I can look back on this nice and cozy outfit I wore for a quick run to the farmers market a few Saturday's ago. Christian and I stocked up on our favorite pesto before the farmer's market season is over. We bought 1 to use right away and 3 to freeze and get us through Winter! 

 

I wore my new boots for the occasion and paired them with super skinny jeans and a matching cashmere sweater. Basic and perfect. I also realized that this sweater is 7 years old now, wow!

 

Another set of phone photos because I wasn't planning on taking outfit pictures, so the color is a little off on some of them because Christian's iPhone wasn't cooperating, ha ha! I am glad I was able to get some pictures with pretty fall foliage. I didn't get to see much this year because we've been home so much.

October! My birthday month. I usually allow myself a little splurge in October but since I haven't really been going anywhere I wanted to resist buying anything new.

 

Then the first weekend of the month came and I got a text from Lydia with a photo of a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs burgundy buckle up boots. In my size. $60 PLUS 20% off. I did a quick search and found out the boots retailed for $495. I believe they are from Fall 2014. So $48 wasn't bad at all! I had her pick them up for me even though I didn't know when I would actually be able to retrieve them, ha ha. She dropped them off in the middle of the month during a socially distanced visit so I didn't have to wait long! I made us some homemade bagels and Chocolate Coconut Blondies...YUM!


I also ordered a new pair of pajamas from Honeydew Intimates with my Shopbop gift cards and 15% off birthday coupon. They are SO comfy I'm already planning on getting another pair when they go on sale!
