I can never seem to make it a whole month without buying something! This month it was a pair of jeans. They're not necessarily a "new" item because it is an exact replacement of a pair I currently own. I originally bought these Le Skinny de Jeanne jeans in April 2015 from Shopbop and they have been worn soooooo many times. When I bought them they were a major splurge at $141 (retail $189) but proved to be a worthy purchase. (According to my Wardrobe Update that month I used $100 in a gift card so they were $40) This time I scored them for $30!


My Mom has already had to patch my current pair once because a seam started tearing at the back. FRAME still makes this same style but I really love the wash I bought and wanted the exact same color to replace my current pair. I think I've been searching for over a year. There was a false alarm at the end of last year where I bought a pair and the seller never sent them - UGH! This time I was successful and the pair looks like it has never been worn! I'll obviously keep my current pair because they have wear left, but I feel better knowing I have a pair waiting in the wings.

I can't believe it is already December.  For the first time in what feels like forever, I'm sharing an outfit! This year has been so strange and I hate that I haven't been sharing many outfits. But I haven't been going many places other than the grocery store and when we do that Christian doesn't want to stop off to take photos very often. I wore this for an outside distanced visit with my parents and siblings in early November. It was nice to be around people besides Christian for a change, ha ha. 

 

P.S. How gorgeous is this tree? My parents planted it the year my sister was born so its 2 years older than me, ha ha. It always looks super pretty in Fall.

A comfortable weekend look worn to hang out at my Grandma's on Sunday. Sadly the baby was sick so my main source of entertainment - kids - was gone. Luckily, Layla came with my cousin so I was able to bug her for a few hours. It's almost her 11th birthday...CRAZY! (My cousin rescued her when she was 4 and I lived with them for 5 years, time flies!) I haven't been going to his new house to steal her as often as I would like because I'm lazy, but I'll have to grab her soon!

For some reason whenever I wear this grey faux fur vest I find myself wanting to pair it with my Marc Jacobs mouse flats. If it's not broke, don't fix it, I guess.

It's so hard to dress for Spring when we've had rain or colder weather almost every day. I've been trying to inject a bit of Spring with colors or prints since I can't wear less clothing. In this case I wore my cherry blossom print pants with a cozy cashmere sweater.

I do love wearing new pieces for the first time! In this case it's a new-to-me sweater jacket from Rag & Bone. I wore it to a meeting and then dinner at my parents a couple weeks ago. I got it for around $30 in Roundabout's end of season sale and found a bunch available on The Real Real (in the widget below the post!) I tried to make my outfit less Wintery by wearing my Marc Jacobs mouse flats, but it was still rather chilly!

Say hello to my new favorite sweater!  You may have already heard the story about this Autumn Cashmere landscape sweater from my January Wardrobe Update but for those that didn't I'll share again! It all starts with an Instagram photo in August. You know I'm all about the statement piece and this one is extra soft & comfy - bonus! At one point it had sold out so I was pretty sad and had non-buyers remorse. But then one came back in my size but was still full price so I patiently waited. Eventually it went on sale plus Autumn Cashmere was offering 20% off sale prices. It was still a splurge but I used the remainder of my advertising and Christmas money to buy it.

It's such a fun piece and has a lot of the colors that my wardrobe is built on. I already have a few more looks I want to wear. I don't have a photographer during the week anymore so my photo taking is now strictly on the weekends unless I want to use my tripod outside in the freezing cold (I don't.)  Once it warms up a bit I may be able to take them during the week again but for now we'll be a little light on posts unless we do a big chunk on the weekends.

Last weekend I wore this to go to Dave & Busters with my siblings and their significant others. I had a gift card as a thanks for doing a giveaway with them a couple months ago and decided to share the wealth with everyone so we could have some fun. We were brave to go to the Connecticut Post Mall the weekend before Christmas but luckily Dave & Busters wasn't TOOO crowded because we went right when they opened.
