AJ Wears :: A Hat

There's always great debate about whether someone is a hat person or not. Whenever the subject of hats pops up, someone always chimes in that they are "not a hat person." But what if you just never found the right hat??

Today is not just about hats, though. Today is about fitting a bunch of blogger cliches into one post. Trendy hat? Check. Mixing prints? Check. Useless draped jacket? You betcha. That one clutch that you have to buy to be considered a legitimate blogger? YUP. Seriously though, I've admired this clutch for a very long time. I don't have many nice clutches, so this was a welcome addition to my handbag collection.

AJ Wears :: A Splatter Print Skirt

I have a hard time endorsing any of the shady (usually foreign) clothing websites. Quality is lacking, shipping takes forever, and sizes are all over the board. But let's face it, they can be a GREAT source for something super cheap and unique. So occasionally, I'll take a leap of faith and hope it pays off. This time it did - not only was the shipping crazy fast, this skirt is actually a winner. It's a great dupe for this Tibi number I always regretted not splurging on, but for like...$15. When midi skirts go out, I'll probably have it hemmed above the knee and just keep on wearing it.

Pardon the fuzziness, but these shoes are also something I missed out on and found later, for cheaper. JustFab has them in both black and red, and they could not be more perfect for the holidays! I would jump on these (the name is Hadley) because I bet they'll sell out quickly.

AJ Wears :: Pleather Leggings

Red pleather leggings? Why not! These are some of the most comfy leggings I've ever put on, which was surprising. They're deliciously stretchy and have a nice high rise, so they were the perfect item to start my week. Comfort + Cute is kind of my thing. If it's your thing too, stay with me until the end where I give away a gift card so you can get some of your own.

The leggings and necklace were a gift from Our World Boutique, a super cute little shop packed full of goodies - particularly leggings. If you've been looking for a certain print, this might be your shot! They're having a killer sale right now - 25% off with the coupon code FALL25 (ends Sunday so get on it!). And, because they're so cool, they've put a $25 gift card up for grabs for you guys. Rafflecopter it below and I'll choose a winner on Monday! Good luck!
