I loved this outfit, sadly the pictures do not do it justice. This is nothing against my amazing photographer, I just remember being super uncomfortable and in a rush when taking these because we were near a busy street.  (people kept walking in front of me and starring, as non-bloggers do, ha ha. Luckily no one was walking directly on the street behind me.) We had just finished checking out the Annual Scarecrows Along Main in Historic Wethersfield and it was fairly crowded because it was the last weekend before Halloween. 

As many of you know, I have social anxiety so taking photos in public is always a huge ordeal for me. Normally we try to do photos away from people, but I really wanted pictures in this outfit and it was getting too dark to go somewhere secluded (plus we went with my Aunt and Uncle and didn't want to take too long for them.)

Just imagine me looking happier and less awkward.



P.S. Did you know cheesy landscape sweaters like this are in style again this year! So glad I bought this a couple years ago when it wasn't as in, even though people said it was weird, ha ha! Goes to show - buy what you love even if other's don't agree, one day they'll be hunting for something just like it! Who wants to buy me this fun Sea New York sweater with sheep!? So cute. Shop some more below!

Bag: Madewell Medium Slim Saddle Bag in Croc c/o Shopbop



Christian decided to do some experimenting with these photos and I love the way they turned out! This Autumn Cashmere landscape sweater remains one of my favorite pieces in my closet. It's super soft and the print makes it fun! Perfect for an afternoon walk in the park. Right after we finished these photos the clouds rolled in so we caught the lighting at the perfect time! 


I brought my new Phillip Lim Pashli bag even though I didn't need it because it hasn't been worn yet (I bought it in September!) and I thought it deserved a proper blog debut! 


Sadly I can't find this sweater anywhere for resale BUT I was able to find a ton of similar styles on etsy and ebay!

Sometimes I like to pick a color and come up with a monochromatic outfit. It's easy to do when you keep buying all the same colors, ha ha. I always love a good cashmere sweater and this one from alice + olivia is so fun, I love the elbow patches.

Worn earlier this month to go see Captain Marvel with Christian, my brother and his girlfriend. And now we're a month away from Avengers: Endgame. AHHH! The suspense is terrible.  Are you a Marvel fan? I just love the way all the movies are connected, even with the smallest references and Easter eggs. Going to be sad when it's all over! But at least we'll have Phase Four, although it probably won't be the same as everything that led up to it. We'll have to wait and see!

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!
