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:

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!

We had quite the snow storm last week. It wasn't a lot of snow but it really affected the roads. Christian got to leave work early because of the conditions and it took him an hour to get home when it should only take a half hour. I was left to shovel the snow on the driveway and sidewalk before he got home. I also did it again the next morning to get the remainder.  This is my snow day sweater, it keeps me warm and cozy while I shovel. And the best part? It was $1 at a thrift store.

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.

I finally crossed two places off my bucket list this past weekend when I went to visit my youngest brother. He lives close to Mystic, in Connecticut, so we went to Mystic Pizza! I'm not a huge fan of the movie (I know, I know) but I do enjoy good pizza and this was AMAZING. Christian and I shared the Texas Chicken Pizza and it was so good! We also had some of their fries, which he said were some of the best fries he's ever had.

Next on the agenda was Sift Bake Shop! Christian and I love watching all of the seasonal baking competitions on Food Network - Holiday Baking Championship, Spring, Kids, etc. One season a man from Mystic, Adam Young, was on Spring Baking! He made it to the final three that season and also went on to win Best Baker in America on Food Network. He was known for his beautifully made desserts and the ones in his bakery look like they could be on TV. I wish I could have tried everything but settled on the chocolate hazelnut praline and chocolate raspberry torte. Both were delicious!
