I didn't intend on taking outfit photos this day. Christian and I went for a walk in the park for a Pokemon Go event (yes, we still play, haha!) and it was a chilly September day. We stumbled upon this pretty area of the park (sometimes these are all cut down so it doesn't look as nice) and I decided to have Christian snap some photos with his phone. 


Upon viewing the photos I realized these jeans, although SUPER comfortable, are not the most photogenic. They're a little loose in the wrong places. This sweater and leather jacket combo on the other hand is perfection. I will definitely be re-wearing the top half of this at some point. It's been quite a while since I wore this jacket which is a shame. I used to wear it ALLLLL the time when I first got it in 2012.



While Christian and I are still staying extra cautious, many people are starting to get back into old routines, but we should all still take as many precautions as possible. That includes wearing masks and using hand sanitizer after touching public surfaces. Obviously I took my mask off for these photos but whenever we are near people it is always in use.

Today I'm partnering with Nakturnal to give one US-based reader a College Care Pack PPE kit from Get Go Care! It includes 60 packets of moisturizing & hydrating hand sanitizer, 15 high-quality, disposable masks and 5 durable, latex-free, disposable gloves.

Get Go Care, based in Illinois, was founded this year because of the need for PPE among not only essential workers but also students. The products are made in China at an FDA-approved factory.

To enter: Leave a comment stating who you would gift a Get Go PPE Kit to and why!

Decided to re-wear this outfit on a warmer day earlier this week. Can you believe I'm just wearing a tee under my leather jacket? Admittedly it was a little chilly but not horrible. This leather jacket remains one of my favorite steals. I think I need to recondition it though, it's getting a little scaly! I actually found one available on eBay too! Go snatch it up, you won't be sorry!

I also decided to break out my old ring collection. It felt a little strange to wear all my rings again after just wearing my engagement ring (and then wedding band) for months. I'll definitely start bringing some back, but maybe not all of them at once like this. Not that it's bad, but I should probably be a bit more subtle now that I'm a married woman ;)

Over Memorial Day we had the first weekend guests in our new home! On Saturday we went to lunch by the "beach" (aka a rocky/shelly beach near our house) and took a stroll by the water. I went with a nautical themed look for the occasion.

Enjoy lots of bag and back of sweater pictures because we were experimenting and I liked too many of them. I also realized the majority of this outfit is from the Clinton Crossing outlets. I got each one a different year at their Spring fashion event, funny how that works out and they're all still in style.

Sweater: Club Monaco (Clinton Crossing Premium Outlet),  Shorts: Banana Republic (Clinton Crossing), Bucket Bag: Tommy Hilfiger (Clinton Crossing), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Clio' (Nordstrom), Sunglasses: Gucci, Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon)

I wore this for a belated birthday lunch date with a friend last week. VERY belated since her birthday was in March...oops! We went to our favorite restaurant, The Chowder Pot in Branford. It is SO good. We always stuff ourselves with salad, honey butter bread, shrimp and fish! This time we shared blackened tilapia and shrimp scampi....mmm!

P.S. Happy Star Wars Day!!!! I'll be spending my day working and watching Rogue One and Episodes 4-8! May the Fourth Be With You!

I still remember the day I wore this outfit. It was from when I used to work in New York City and two work friends and I went to a shopping event at a Madewell store. I didn't buy anything, but we did get some tasty froyo! I wore this for a less exciting occasion - to the bank to order some Euros for my upcoming trip to Italy. (WOO!)

Weekends are all about comfort. Okay...maybe every day is about comfort, but especially weekends. I wore this a couple weekends ago for an afternoon at my Grandmothers. This leather jacket is still one of my all time favorite steals. A Theyskens' Theory leather jacket I found at Nordstrom Rack for $172, it retailed for $1150. INSANITY!

This romper was one of my April buys. It's a tiny bit too big, but that's what you get for shopping sample sale sites...I couldn't exchange for a smaller size - because it sold out - so it was either return it or keep it. Since it was only $27 I opted to keep it. I love the little bit of skin it shows in the back, it also adds a nice breeze when it's super hot out.

I've been meaning to get these sandals fixed but I have no idea if a cobbler would be able to do what I need. Or where there is a cobbler near me.  My friend borrowed them when we were on vacation and it rained so the leather stretched out a LOT. I need to get the back straps shortened so I can buckle them again. When I wore them this day I kind of faked it since I knew I wouldn't be walking a lot. #shoehacks.

Another Thursday, another throwback outfit! It has two of my old stand-bys in it: the leather jacket and sandals! Sadly the sandals are falling apart due to their age so I try not to wear them too much now. And I've been neglecting the leather jacket lately too...shame on me!
