I think I'm in a blog funk. Christian hasn't been able to take as many of my photos lately and when I have my Dad take them I don't like to take up too much of his time so we just take 5 quick shots and I'm done. So even though my Dad is a great photographer (it's one of his favorite hobbies) a lot of the time the photos just aren't up to snuff because I rush.

In this case it was my shorts fault, the linen wrinkles SO easy and I had already been wearing this outfit for half the day. I also stupidly covered the graphic on my shirt with my still wet hair.  Plus my cousin was visiting from Ohio so I REALLY rushed these photos. At least there's a cute puppy (my brother's) to distract from all of that. 

Graphic Tee: EPCOT Food & Wine Festival Passholder Tee, Shorts: Splendid Arabesque Cargo Short in Antique Military Olive (Marshalls), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Alethea' (bought in Santorini),  Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Perfect Purse ostrich-effect PVC' (Net-a-Porter), Sunglasses: Chanel






Slightly behind in posting outfits, the joys of only posting twice a week now that I can only really take photos on the weekend and if I go to my parents for dinner. I wore this at the beginning of the month for a food blogger event at El Toro in Stratford, CT. I always have so much fun with all the food bloggers, we just chat and stuff our faces with tasty food!

I decided to wear my Disney tee from last year's EPCOT Food & Wine Festival for the occasion.  I paired it with my suede jacket and ripped jeans to make it a little more funky. And yes, these sandals again. Whenever spring first hits I'm always drawn to wearing these more often than any other shoes because they're so comfortable.

Graphic Tee: EPCOT Food & Wine Festival Passholder Tee, Jacket: Lauren by Ralph Lauren - similar (TJ Maxx), Jeans: Current/Elliott skinny jean in Love Destroyed, Sandals: Malu c/o Marshalls, Sunglasses: Chanel, Wedding Band: Sofia Zakia Altair Ring (Catbird), Engagement Ring: Custom Sofia Zakia Wandering Star Ring, Opal & Sapphire



Here's a look at some of the food if you missed it on my Instagram!
For those of you that don't pay attention to every single detail of my blog and Instagram posts, aka everyone ;), it is important to note the significance of Wall-E in my life.  It is the first movie Christian and I watched together and was technically our first date.  We watched it while at a Game of Thrones convention his brother was running.

Since then, Wall-E has cemented itself as one of my favorite Pixar movies - it was already in my top. So now, Wall-E and Eve represent our relationship - see our Wall-E shelf (which is missing a few pieces that were in another room in the house that I've since relocated here.) When I went to Disney back in May I just had to get this cute necklace so I could always have Wall-E/Christian with me.

For some weird reason this is the first time this sweater is appearing on the blog this season. I've worn it at least 6 times since the start of Fall so not sure how that happened!

Sweater: Everlane Wool-Cashmere Oversized Cable Turtleneck, Snakeskin Texture Jeans: Jolt (Marshalls), Flats c/o Joie 'Dylan' leopard loafer, Wall-E Necklace: Disney World, Sunglasses: Chanel, Bag: Louis Vuitton Epi Leather Sac D'Epaule (HauteTrader)




To continue with my December Wardrobe Update I thought I would share my favorite purchases on 2018! I only added 14 new pieces (plus 5 gifted jewelry items) to my closet this year so it's slim pickings compared to past years.

Needle & Thread 'Mirage' tiered embellished tulle dress  - The Wedding Look

If my wedding dress didn't make my top purchases list, we'd have a problem.  I never imagined myself in a white or traditional wedding dress so this sequined lilac dress was perfect for me.

Nicholas Kirkwood 'Lola' embellished Lurex sandals    - The Wedding Look

The same goes for my wedding shoes! I wanted these to be super special and unique so I splurged quite a bit!

I've only worn the dress and shoes for the wedding ceremony and party so far but I will definitely break out the shoes again in the future. I'm sure I'll find another occasion for the dress as well.


Sofia Zakia 'Altair' Ring - The Wedding Rings

Another no-brainer favorite is my wedding band. I love my wedding rings because they're so unique. The shape of the band fits perfectly with the engagement ring - it was designed that way - and I couldn't imagine a better piece of jewelry to wear for the rest of my life.


Franco Sarto "Dolly" mules

You can't beat $20 for a pretty pair of suede mules, can you? I almost didn't buy these because I was trying to "behave" and not buy new clothes. So glad I broke my no spending rule to add these to my closet in January. They're such a great color and go with everything I own.


Dooney & Bourke 2017 Sorcerer Mickey Disney Shopper Tote - First Seen Here

This purchase was a long time coming. I had wanted it in 2017 when I went to Disney and didn't buy it and then spent the next nine months hunting for one on eBay. It may not be worn often but I'm still super happy with the purchase. It's as much a part of my Disney collection as it is in my wardrobe so I'll be happy as a clam to see it sitting with my Disney items until it gets worn again.
 


Vince Camuto 'Davilla' Ankle Boot

Technically I haven't worn the ones I bought yet, but I bought a replacement pair of boots for when these eventually get too gross to wear. Seeing as I've been looking for a couple years I'd say this is a great buy! You can see these are all nice and scuffed. Can't wait to break out the new clean ones!

Some days you just want to wear an oversized men's sweater, Star Wars leggings and heeled boots. I think I've only worn this sweater once on the blog, but its one of my favorite "hang around the house" pieces. Then I decided it needed some blog time in honor of Mickey's 90th birthday last month. I think I paid about $5 for it back in 2013. There are a few on eBay right now too if you want to grab one for yourself!

Funnily enough, half of this outfit is thrifted. The sweater, turtleneck and bag were all under $10! (The bag was $2!) The leggings were a gift from Kohl's as a part of my Star Wars photoshoot. The only expensive thing I'm wearing is my boots, which I also got for half retail price at Marshalls. 

Sweater: Mickey State Letterman Sweater (thrifted), Turtleneck: Vanessa Bruno (Coco's $10 sale), Leggings: Rock & Republic Star Wars Studded Leggings c/o Kohl's, Boots: Gianvito Rossi 'Finlay' (Marshalls), Bag: Etienne Aigner (thrifted)












Sometimes it's just too windy/freezing to take photos outside. On this day Christian and I went to the park for a Pokemon Community Day (yes, we're nerds, we don't care.) and it was super windy and cold. We spent a lot of the time just sitting in the car to escape. We did manage to get a couple things we were hunting for but man was it brutal! Instead of taking photos at the park like we usually do we decided to stay warm and take them in front of my parents fireplace. The lighting wasn't the best so the photos are a bit wonky, but what can you do.

P.S. I love this sweatshirt. It's actually from the kid's section. When Kristen and I went to Disney for my birthday last month we wanted to get a cute Toy Story related clothing item since that part of the park recently opened. Unfortunately the adult options weren't all that cute and they were so expensive - $35 for a t-shirt. This sweatshirt on the other hand, was $30 in the kids section but we got ours for $25 after our Annual Passholder discount. So pro-tip: if you are a Small or Medium in tops you can buy a Large kids sweatshirt and Disney for half the price of adult clothes.

Sweatshirt: Toy Story Aliens (Disney World), Jeans: Everlane 'Mid-Rise Skinny Jean' in Black, Slip-On Sneakers: BCBGeneration 'Yerra' Slip-on Sneaker (DSW), Bag: Chanel Classic 2.55 Double Flap (Madison Avenue Couture)
