Things I Wore :: October 2018

My ultimate goal is to catch up on these enough that I can start doing them weekly. HA HA

October was a weather-y month. We had a lot of rain, some warm weather, and we finally got cool enough to pull out boots and sweaters! To say I am thrilled is a bit of an understatement. I pulled out a few favorites this month, copied some old outfits, and wore the heckin’ heck out of my Joie booties. MVP of the month for SURE. Here we go:

10/1: New contacts day, so I’m letting my eyeballs breathe. Honestly surprised I did this on Day 1. Express sweater and some Dillard’s private label flats that TORE UP my feet.

10/2: I have no idea what is going on here. It was a Tuesday so I must have worked from home here, but had to run errands. This is why people hate athleisure.

10/3: Clean hair and redemption for yesterday’s crimes. Trina Turk skirt, cute top I picked up from Trunk Club. Not pictured: A really cute cardigan I did not need because it’s still hot. We decided to return to our Cache happy hour tradition this month and this was a great idea.

10/4: Busy day of voice over work. I finally got my shoes back from the cobbler so I am wearing the heck outta them this week.

10/5: It is hot and I cannot be bothered anymore. This is technically shorts and a top (from Belk) so it just LOOKS like a romper. Shoes by Aquazurra that co-worker Abby almost stole off of my feet.

10/6: Mall / Apple Store / Beer fest kind of outfit. Weekend appropriate for sure. These shorts from H&M are AWESOME FYI - a little bootilicious but I love a high waist.

10/7 (not pictured): Just wore lounge clothes today - we heard some people cheering outside and decided to go down and see what football team they were cheering for. Oddly enough, it was the Browns and the Browns Fans of Little Rock have a standing appointment at Dugan’s to watch them all season. Their vigor has made me a browns fan now.

10/8: Oh look, it’s that shirt from Express I picked up at the mall on Saturday.

10/9: Not found, must’ve worked from home again

10/10: This dress still going strong! I love it! The weather was amazing so I met up with some friends on the Cache patio and soaked it up. My friend Candice has this dress too.

10/11: Concert outfit! I finally got to pull out these ridiculous Stuart Weitzman boots I bought on mega sale for the Thomas Rhett concert. I gotta tell you, I don’t know that I’ve ever received more compliments on a pair of shoes in one day, EVER. They’re sparkly. I love them.

10/12: Too much fun at the concert, so I went comfy for that Friday at work. The weather has cooled off beautiful and we’re off to the Arkansas State Fair this evening! I had the hot beef sundae, and this dress is from Old Navy.

10/13: And here’s where the rain kicks in. Y’all, it rained so much this day. The Razorbacks play in Little Rock once a year and it’s one of my favorite LR traditions, but this weather made it absolutely miserable. Thank goodness for friends with a giant tent. We skipped out on going to the game in favor of watching the game at our condo and eating brownie sundaes. This Zara rain jacket has been an absolute lifesaver on rainy days!

10/14: Brunch at EJ’s followed by Jersey Boys at the Robinson Music Hall. Old Navy dress strikes again but this time it’s cold enough for tights. After that, we hit up Lost Forty for a concert for Clarke Tucker (who absolutely should have won, keep voting blue y’all).

10/15: You may have caught on by now that my hair is still in french braids. Get over it, it’s been raining non-stop for days and this is the only way I can keep my hair in check. It’s cold and I didn’t feel like wearing anything today, so I’m wearing a giant blanket from the Loft.

10/16: What’s this, clothes on a Tuesday? You caught me (still trash hair though). I had a committee meeting at Heifer so I had to pull myself together. When my friend picked me up (at my house) to drive over there, she was like, “Do you have a hot date after this?” Nope. Just an over-achiever (except the hair, again, I don’t care).

10/17: FEELING this gorgeous dress I picked up from Trunk Club last year (I think it’s Treasure & Bond?). Another gorgeous afternoon so we happy hour at Cache. Also yes, I finally washed my hair. Judge away.

10/18: Feeling de ja vu? That’s because I wore this exact same outfit exactly one year ago. I saw it on Timehop and decided it was a great choice for the day. JustFab has restocked this cardigan and I was excited to pull out the ole 5050 boots for the first time this year.

10/19: Casual vibe for work. I later changed into a lace shirt for a dance party and Italian food.

10/20: Happy Pride, Arkansas! It was a little too warm for this cardigan in the sun, but perfect on the shady patio where we decided to watch the festivities.

10/21: Gorgeous cool day, so we biked around downtown and did the regular Sunday Bike2Brews tour. It was also Pokemon Go community day, so I caught a bunch of pokemon. Oh look, it’s those boots again.

10/22: Work stuff - Cute skirt from JCrew Factory and a cropped sweater from The Limited. I love this outfit even though it’s super simple.

october-7.jpg

10/23: SheIn is now actively stalking me on Facebook and Instagram. I had to have this sweater, even though the pearls click on my desk when I try to type. And look, more emerald. I have never been more predictable.

10/24: Another SheIn target but I LOVE this set. It’s so fun, I feel like a fancy pinata. I had to look extra cute today because I was taking headshots for the radio station. Then we did our normal Cache happy hour which was way more embarrassing this time because I had a giant run in my tights.

10/25: It’s raining. I wore a sweater from Asos.

10/26: Conference Day! I attended the Made by Few conference (for makers of the web!) instead of going to work so I had to make sure I was comfy cute for that.

october-8.jpg

10/27: Day 2 of MxF and my Nordstrom order from Atlantic Pacific x Halogen arrived just in time. This sweater is SO soft and cute!

10/28: There’s an Air Show at the Jacksonville Airforce Base and Mr AJ got us into the chalets, so of COURSE we were going to that (I love a VIP perk). It was actually 70, sunny and gorgeous so I didn’t even need a jacket. The Thunderbirds were really cool! Also peep appearance #4 of these Joie booties. I need to get them in black, yo. They’re so comfy, so cute.

10/30: Halloween Eve, peeps! I wore my favorite spooky sweater to work, and then we hit up a Halloween alley party downtown before getting food at Stickyz. I need to stock up on some more spooky stuff while it’s on sale, I love it.

10/31: Halloween party at work and IM A BASIC, DUH. Two days in a row with the peace sign, woof. I wore these ears every chance I got this month because they’re from the official Disney World store and I spent too much money on them, tbh. Especially since they’re halloween themed and I’ll only be able to wear them once a year. But I love them and that’s all that matters. We hit up some Scary-oke because it rained all night and Mr AJ won $100! Not for singing. For being born in the same year as the bill. Either way - boom.

Things I Wore :: September 2018

Now that October is basically over, what better time to recap everything I wore in September?

It was a rough month, weather-wise. It was hot and I get cranky when it’s hot this close to fall, so my parade of cheap SheIn tops continued for the first half of the month. I also made a pretty large Old Navy order with some transitional dresses. I’ve slowly been getting back into dresses. Why did I ever stop?

sept-1.jpg

9/1: Birthday party for my dear friend Sandra + a little touch of Razorback flair.

9/2: Sunday Funday bike ride to Diamond Bear for beer and pretzels. This skort ended up working fairly well for biking! I wanted to look cute but not chafe my thighs, so I loaded up on Lush Rump too.

9/3: Labor Day. I guess we went to the pool or something because I did not log an outfit that day.

9/4: SheIn is mostly hit or miss but I LOVE this top. Super easy to throw on and go while still looking put together.

sept-2.jpg

9/5: No idea what I wore to work today (maybe I worked from home?) but we had tickets to go watch the Arkansas Travelers play and I decided to show my love for Otey the Swamp Possum, one of the most horrifying team mascots ever to exist.

9/6: I let Alexa decide what top to wear with these overalls and she picked this one from SheIn.

9/7: It actually cooled off thanks to some rain. This wrap sweater from Leith is so soft and comfy, and I’m really into green this season.

9/8: Went to my friend Maegan’s house (check out her blog Southern Blondie) to watch Arkansas lose football. It rained all night. Actually, these rubber Chelsea boots from JustFab got a LOT of wear this month.

sept-3.jpg

9/9: Since it rained its face off the day before, the Main Street Food Truck Festival was moved to Sunday. The rain did make it a little cooler (70s! Hurrah!) so I could wear pants! I had some tacos and then we went and sat on the patio at Live Life Chill.

9/10-11: Did I not go to work on Monday? Why is there no photo? Tuesday was crazy with freelance stuff so I’m assuming I wore leggings all day.

9/12: There’s that cute dress from ShoeDazzle again, and this comfy little jacket from Old Navy (this year’s version is sueded!). We were hosting a fundraiser for a local candidate so I dressed up a little and drank wine for democracy.

9/13: A dramatic SheIn top for work, followed by a birthday dinner for my friend Amy at Cantina Cinco de Mayo. It’s our favorite cheap Mexican place and I’m thrilled they moved in downtown.

sept-wedding.jpg

9/14-17: Wedding in Cincinnati. I didn’t really keep track of my outfits except for what I wore to the wedding, this gorgeous maxi from Luv Boutique and a fun crop from Everlane with a dramatic back. I may do a short blog on what we did in Cincinnati (mostly beer tourism).

sept-4.jpg

9/18: My Old Navy packages are starting to roll in (four in all for one order, get it together guys) so I have some cute new stuff to wear! It’s cool enough for a dress with sleeves but I need to keep my legs out. This dress is a new favorite.

9/19: Work and getting my roots done! It’s hard to tell but this dress is a deep green. This was pre-hair.

9/20: I had a committee meeting at Heifer International at lunch today, which I like to dress nice for. Plus fresh hair, duh. Another comfy-but-cute Old Navy dress! They’re killing it at basics right now.

sept-5.jpg

9/21: A weird SheIn top with some shorty shorts since it’s super hot again. My dad was in a show so we drove home to Texas after work.

9/22-23: No photos because I’m in Texas but I basically just wore all of my Old Navy dresses and it rained all weekend. But the show was great! And I got all of my favorite foods!

9/24: This dress is the comfiest thing I own. It’s soft and slouchy and I bought it in both gray and red.

9/25: The heat is back. I had lunch with Maegan today and ran all over town for errands and work.

9/27: Guess I worked from home on Wednesday? The weather roller coasters once again and I finally get to wear my new Spanx leggings. I love them so much, I replaced my old ones this year during the NSale (and picked up the Moto ones!).

sept-6.jpg

9/28 (day): A super cute SheIn top for work. I’ve been waiting for it to cool off so I could wear it!

9/28 (night): We won a silent auction recently for dinner at the 1836 Club, a membership only restaurant and club. It’s in this gorgeous old house I’ve always wanted to go in, and we got to spend the evening with some dear friends drinking great wine and trying some amazing food. I opted for this dramatic cape jumpsuit c/o SheIn, which made me feel like a sexy witch.

9/29: And it’s hot again. We did it ALL on this Saturday. Pizza and college football watching at Gusano’s, Oktoberfest at Rebel Kettle, a little patio time at Copper Grill, followed by dinner with friends at Ira’s Restaurant, a new place downtown that is absolutely amazing.

9/30: Sunday Funday has become a staple in our house, and I decided to dress comfy for it today in Gap leggings. We rode our bikes to the State Capitol and I grabbed some Pokemon, then we did a little patio hopping from Vino’s to Bark Bar to Brewski’s for wings and football. It was a PERFECT patio day and I love our bike riding Sundays.

So, that’s what I wore in September! October - coming soon.
