Camo Casual

Jacket: Primark / Tee: Sheinside / Jeans: American Eagle / Necklace: Target / Clutch: TJMaxx / Shoes: Nine West / Sunnies: Vintage

Happy hump day ya'll! I can't even believe it is Wednesday already, well really I have no idea what day or time it is. I have this thing, were I can not sleep on planes. So my travels to Europe and to Vietnam are not always pretty. I get a little loopy and sleep deprived to say the least. I usually fly overnight and then go right into the office (for Germany), trying to get a full day of work in on literally zero sleep. I leave tomorrow morning for home and then it off to another wedding in CT. Talk about quick trip. So I am sorry if none of these words are not spelled correctly or if I am not making sense. You will have to bare with me. Not that I usually make sense or spell correct....

How beautiful is this reservoir.  It is right near my parents house, of course, like everything else I ever talk about in CT. It was peak tree peeping weekend and we got our money's worth that's for sure. It was a little windy and chilly on Sunday but oh so beautiful, I really can't complain. This is my go to casual outfit, when the weather is cool enough for a jacket, but if the sun hits just right you are sweating your tail off! Yea this look is for that! I love camo and leopard together, I think its one of my fav pattern combos, maybe because they are so juxtaposed. Girly x Edgy = Fabulous. 

Can we also talk about the perfect length of these jeans? They aren't even a short? I pulled these puppies on and realized I found my new fav pair. Check them out if you are short like me, and American Eagle always has great prices on their jeans!

Classic White Shirt On A Farm

Top: Old Navy / Jeans: Old Navy / Wedges: Nina Shoes / Necklace: Forever 21 / Clutch: Vintage (my grandmother) / Sunnies: Kate Spade

You all have seen some images from AuerFarm before, it is the amazing 4-H farm next to my parents house in Connecticut. We get our Christmas tree here every year, they also have blueberry and raspberry picking throughout the summer. I love going there to see the animals in the barn that is always open for people to pop into. The grounds are amazing and they also often hold educational and fun field trips for children! Such a great thing for the community. I try to stop over here as often as I can when I come to visit my parents, there is just something so wonderful about farms. I really would love to live on a farm, or maybe I did in a past life?

There is nothing better than a simple outfit pumped up with some leopard. Leopard makes pretty much any outfit better to be honest. I love these Nina wedges because they are casual and super comfortable but give you just the right about of height and extra oomph you need in a simple outfit. Add a bold lip and your out the door. I really think the goats were digging it... =)

When this post goes live I will be either wandering aimlessly in the Amsterdam airport or on the plane on my way to Germany -- Hope you all have a great Tuesday or Monday night or whatever the heck say and time it is where you are!

Pencil Skirt & Chambray Shirt

Top: American Eagle / Skirt: JCrew (old) / Sunglasses: Vintage / 
Shoes: Ann Taylor / Purse: Michael Kors / Bracelets: Alex & Ani

Well it was another beautiful fall weekend in New England. I spent my weekend in CT helping my parents clean out my grandmothers house. She has always been a collector of well, everything. Some pieces worth collecting, some maybe not so much but it made her happy and at the end of the day that's all that matters. While it is a lot of work and we are still not close to being done, we all got a good laugh out of looking through her old photos and toys we remember playing with when we were young. I  also came across three pairs of sunglasses! How fab are these vintage sunnies I am wearing! Thanks Gram! My hubby was working this weekend so my mom helped me out and she was my wonderful photographer..thanks mom! Oh and I dyed my hair last night, lush cherry. Undecided on it. 

Do you have a chambray shirt? Because if not you need one right now, you can literally wear it with so many different outfits, from jeans and skirts, to dresses and shorts. Buttoned, un-buttoned with a tee, tucked, un-tucked, over your shoulders, and tied around your waist the options are endless. This one I found was $39 from American Eagle if you are looking for a new one this one is great and has snap buttons -- which I love, because I am old and don't like buttoning buttons! HA!

Bold Yellow Jacket

Jacket: Sheinside / Top: Zara (old) / Jeans: Old Navy / Booties: Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom / Clutch: TJMaxx / Necklace: Target / Sunnies: Kate Spade

I bought this Jacket (p.s. it is $27) over the summer when I did a big order from sheinside. I like to order at least a few items when I order from there seeing as it takes a little while for stuff to get delivered. I have had this jacket on my rack of "need to wear this" in my "closet" aka our spare bedroom. I put it on many times over the summer then start sweating and took it off. I was perusing through pinterest and saw a outfit similar to this and immediately felt the need to wear my awesome yellow jacket...right meow! This jacket is very similar to Zara jacket that I feel like every blogger but me owns. So, when I saw this on sheinside's website I had to have it. Not to mention yellow is my fav color, but believe it for not I really don't have a lot of yellow in my closet. 

Happy Friday all! I am spending the weekend helping my mom clean out my grandmothers house.  It will be quite interesting -- she loved trinkets to say the least! Then I will be spending next week in good ol' Germany for work. Don't worry I will still have posts for you!

Banana Republic Leather Skirt & Plaid Shirt

Top: Old Navy / Skirt: Banana Republic / Shoes: Sam Edelman(old - so glad I kept them) / Necklace: Nordstrom / Sunnies: Ray Ban / Bracelets: Alex & Ani

When did it become summer in Boston? It has legit been almost 80 these past few days, like seriously my body is so confused. My office is negative degrees and I go for a walk at lunch and I am sweating! Speaking of, did you see during my walk yesterday I ran into some elephants? I am totally not kidding! They were so freaking cute -- and they were holding each others tails!! I literally died inside. Check out my instagram to see the pic of the four cuties walking down the streets of Boston

Anywho, have you guys had a chance to check out Banana Republic lately? If you go to the mall you need to pop in, they have totally revamped with a new look and I am LOVING it, I wish I had an unlimited amount of money to spend in there, I would buy one of everything for both me and hubby. The first time I went back in I was so excited I was taking photos of all the mannequins because I wanted to copy all of the looks. I picked a few pieces while I was there this leather skirt and a to die for moto jacket which you will see soon I'm sure. The skirt fits so well, is so perfect you could totally wear it 3 times a week and never run out of pieces to wear it with. If you do not have a black leather skirt in your closet, you need to run, not walk to the nearest BP and pick this one up! Banana Always has the best sales too -- so keep your eye out and you can get these dreamy pieces at really great prices. Side note -- this top is only $15 -- yea you need this too.
