Monday kind of snuck up on me. I’m on a mission to do some fall cleaning/organizing/purging so I spent most of my weekend trying to get stuff done. It was nice to have a weekend without a ton of plans especially since the next few are looking to be pretty jam packed with happy happenings (wedding, baby shower, engagement parties) and work stuff.
And I know everyone is all excited for fall but it’s still pretty warm around here (think brisk mornings, warm days) so I haven’t quite shed the shorts and dresses for layers and denim. I wore this last weekend for a impromptu football game watching party at a friends house. Speaking of football, I’m still sore about that Kentucky vs. Florida game on Saturday. 3OT’s?!?! I definitely thought this might be the year that they broke that ridiculously long losing streak. Oh well.
Anyways, Isnagged this blazer months ago as one of those “when I’m not pregnant” purchases and it’s been making up for lost time lately.This loafers are making another appearance too. When I bought them I figured I’d be wearing them with mostly basic black and other basics but I’ve found I’m pairing them with just about everything in my closet. And fellow Cats fans, if you’re in need of something in the right color – this bag is it. Perfect color, perfect size.
You guys, I’m pretty excited that this skirt fits now. I ordered it way back when I was a big giant preggo and now that it zips, I’m trying to get my money’s worth out of it. So you’re getting a double dose of it this week.
We’ve seen it dressed down, now I’m jazzing it up a little for work. Nothing too formal though, just enough to make it appropriate for a day at the office. Although I may re-purpose this for a shower or other random summer occasion.
Snagged this blazer during the ZARA summer sale which may be my most favorite sale. I’m pretty sure I haven’t met a ZARA blazer that I didn’t love. I think there’s still some slim pickings on the website so check it out and you may score a solid deal.
Other than waxing poetic on my love of blazers, I don’t have much fun to share. It’s been all work and a lot less play for me lately. Trying to get back into some sort of regular routine is a b***h. Two kids = so much crap to carry around Seriously, why do they need so much stuff?
It may be time to head back to work but you won’t find any work clothes on the blog today (unless you’ve got a seriously laid back work environment – and if so, you go glen coco). Instead we’re getting super local since I’m teaming up with my gal Grace in a tee from Shop Local Kentucky.
I stumbled upon the Shop Local Kentuckycrew through Instagram and have been keeping up with their mission to bring local, Kentucky-made goods, to the masses via the internets. It’s a beautiful bluegrass thing they’re doing. Basically showcasing the products of local merchants and artists throughout the state on their website. They realized that the shop local movement was a great one but why not take it to a state level. And since Kentucky people are obsessed with Kentucky, I’m sure the endeavor will be a successful one.
Oh and if you’re making cool stuff and you live in Kentucky, give them a shout. They’re looking for merchants to work with and showcase on the site.
Grace and I got this bluegrass tee designed by Thirsty Hearts(based in Lexington) to style up and it looks like we both opted out of the basic jeans and t-shirt and instead paired our tee with a skirt. But while she went the fancier route, I’m sure you’re surprised to see I went with stripes and my trusty Supergas (love ‘em so much). I also had to go all blue everything since when I think Kentucky, I think Kentucky blue.
