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.

Leather Jacket: Theyskens' Theory 'Juno' (Nordstrom Rack, similar), Cashmere Leopard Print Sweater: Nili Lotan 'Abbey' sweater in Shiraz c/o Shopbop, Jeans: J Brand 811 Mid Rise Skinny Leg Jean in Moral (Gilt Groupe), Sneakers: Sperry Rio Aqua Slip-On Sneaker (DSW), Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika' c/o Shopbop







Worn on a slightly chilly day last month. These jeans are definitely a transitional pair for me since they're looser fit. When I wear them with anything other than sandals they make me look a little dumpy. I don't wear this cashmere sweater often since it's pink, but I keep it around because it's so soft! It's also a nice darker shade of pink so it doesn't feel as frilly.


I didn't really get a chance to wear any of my Summer sweaters this year since we've really only been going to the grocery store. We have had a few backyard visits with my parents as well, but those didn't really call for sweaters, ha ha.


Cashmere Sweater: Paolo Rodesco (Roundabout Resale), Jeans: IRO "Faxy Cropped Jean" (Gilt c/o Wikibuy), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Apteros' in Crosta Wine (bought in Athens), Sunglasses: Chanel, Amethyst Necklace: BubuRuby

This dress is one of my favorite eBay finds in recent years. I got it last October for only $25 and luckily was able to wear it on a trip to Disney that November. I finally had the chance to wear it again on a warm day. Just to the grocery store and a backyard visit with my parents. But at least I was able to squeeze in a wear before Summer ended. 

 

It's always fun to find pieces you've been wanting for a long time. I originally posted the dress on the blog in 2012 and said I was "obsessed" with it. Definitely an overused word but as you can see I loved it enough to find it 7 years later. I've always been drawn to Edun and their prints so it's very sad that they are out of business. I guess I can keep searching for secondhand pieces!

Temperatures are on the decline but I still have some hot weather day outfits to share before we get to my favorite - jeans and sweaters! I will be sad to "put away" all my sandals though! I say that in quotes because in reality they stay out on display all year thanks to my closet room.

 

 This is one of my favorite thrifting buys/alterations. I bought it back in 2012 for $6 and it was super long. I wore it that way a couple times and then decided to have my Mom shorten it so I would wear it more. I probably should have left it a little longer but I think we had to go all the way to the top of the slits so it wouldn't be noticeable. 

 

I wore this to go for a walk in the park and then Christian and I headed to Brick + Wood to pick up a pizza! We then drove to a parking lot and ate it in the car because we didn't want it to get cold on the way home, haha. It was soooo good! Definitely recommend if you're near Fairfield.

The original dress:

I haven't been getting out much these past few (aka FIVE) months, because we're staying safe at home, but when I do it's with minimal jewelry due to the heat.  How adorable are these small stackable pinky rings from Aurate? You can get them in sizes ranging from 3 to 10 so they're fit for any finger. I definitely want to add more of their thin rose gold rings to my jewelry box.
If you are a long time follower of the blog you'll know that I used to wear a LOT of rings, almost one per finger. But since getting engaged and married I've worn a lot less. These thin rings are a great accompaniment to my wedding rings. I went with rose gold vs white gold to add a bit more fun. Who says you can't mix metals?!
Both rings (and my cute twist huggie earrings) are made with ethically sourced and sustainably made Rose Gold Vermeil. Similar to yellow gold, rose gold is made with a blend of color-saturated alloys with a bit more copper for a rosy hue. Vermeil is basically a fancy name for gold-plated. Aurate goes above and beyond the required amounts and uses 14-karat gold with over 2.5 microns (thickness) and finishes with a top coat to ensure durability and shine.
To make your purchase even better, Aurate has a lifetime guarantee! They'll re-plate, polish, and repair your jewelry when needed. Additionally, for every piece of gold purchased, Aurate donates a book to a child in need in your name.
Summer and hot temps are the perfect time for bold prints! You don't want to have a lot of fabric covering your body so why not make it fun and vibrant. This dress by Farm Rio is so much fun, I was looking forward to wearing it at Disney this Spring but sadly that trip didn't happen. Rather than let it sit in the closet until next year, I decided to wear it for a day of nothing.

I finished the look off with a pair of sandals - I live in my Ancient Greek Sandals all Summer. I'm up to 9 pairs so far - with another possibly on the way, wow! I didn't need a bag since we were just going on a walk but if walking is the only activity on the schedule for the foreseeable future why not make it a complete outfit. This Madewell crocodile effect bag was a pre-quarantine purchase that I never got to wear before lockdown. So glad I was finally able to use it, even if it was just holding my phone, mask and hand sanitizer!
Last minute I threw on another new piece. A layered necklace that I got my Mom for Mother's Day. And no, I didn't steal it from her - I got one for my sister and I too so we could all match!
