It's a wash

sweater: thrifted, CA // vest: loft (exact) // skirt: thrifted, CA, skirt wrinkles: c/o sitting at my desk all morning //
boots: urban outfitters (exact) // necklace: forever 21

Post title = 1. My face is pretty washed out in these pics; 2. I really need to do some laundry and this is a subtle reminder to myself to do that tonight. My 30 picks have dwindled significantly, making this feel more like a 10-30-30+ (ten items, thirty outfits, waaay too many days to count).

Again and again (and again and again)

I'm taking a brief break from my 30-30 for a different remix challenge, this time from Mata Traders. When they asked if I wanted to participate, I was thrilled to say yes -- Mata Trader's classic cuts and eye-popping prints make me swoon, plus all their clothes are fair trade. I was drawn to the saddleback skirt because it transitions perfectly across the seasons, and can walk that fine line between vintage and modern.

skirt: c/o mata traders (exact) // sweater: thrifted, ME // socks: urban outfitters (similar) // belt: thrifted, VT //
necklace: c/o mata traders (exact) // boots: h&m

skirt: c/o Mata Traders (exact) // chambray: forever 21 // vest: thrifted, VT //
wool cardigan: thrifted, IA // bag: h&m (exact) // shoes: marshall's

skirt: c/o mata traders (exact) // stripes: h&m via thrift, CA // cardigan: j crew factory (exact) // blazer: thrifted, CA //
boots: steve madden // scarf: thrifted, CA // glasses: c/o (exact)

It's taken me a forever to get this post up -- the fault is entirely mine, and not the skirt's -- but you can also see how I styled it back in October (with bare legs!), below (and read the full post, here).

Rain, rain...

pants: h&m // boots: urban (exact) // socks: urban (exact) // chambray: forever 21 //
cardigan: loft (exact) // bag: gift -- thanks, Tim!

I made the foolish mistake of showering while down a hair dryer, so I had to brave Maine's recent cold wet weather with the questionable pairing of damp hair and a beanie (and, for good measure, no make-up too). This hairstyle is brought to you by icicles in my ears and a bad case of hat head, which -- pro tip -- is clearly not a winning winter look.

Hi Sissy

skirt: loft //  sweater: thrifted // shirt: loft // scarf: h&m (exact) // jacket: thrifted //
boots: steve madden // sunglasses: urban //
fleece-lined tights: urban (exact) plus, lace tights: target (similar) //
socks: urban (similar
// hat: h&m // belt: thrifted, VT

Okay, okay -- I'm back. (Mom says that across-the-country sister wants to know what I've been wearing, which is as good a reason as any to start posting again.) November totally derailed all efforts to maintain a regular blogging schedule (work travel + some intense deadlines, many lovely visitors, an MIA cameraman -- it goes on). On the list of things to be thankful for: a blogging audience that puts up with my inconsistencies. (Thanks, y'all!)

I do promise that I'm going to buckle down and squeeze in the last 2/3rds of this 30-30 (even if it's significantly colder than when I started); and, on the horizon -- a specific post that I've been meaning to finish up for months now.

glasses: c/o firmoo // bag: h&m (exact) // necklace: urban outfitters (similar)

I woke up feeling blah and under the weather (thanks cats, for that unwanted 3:30 AM wake-up call), hence the glasses -- plus it was raining like crazy. So, I threw on the clothes that were sitting in a pile on my floor and I must admit, I did not have high hopes for the day. But, then it stopped pouring -- the sun even came out and brought the temps up into the 60s, which hasn't happened all week -- and I was super productive at work. To top it off, in a few hours I'll be heading into the woods with some friends for a weekend mini-vacation. Today's looking up. (And and and, I actually really like this look. Floor-chic kinda worked out.)

Bang, bang

boots: urban outfitters (exact, on sale) // dress: madewell // scarf: h&m (exact) //
bag: urban outfitters // jacket: thrifted, CA

Well, I didn't have time to take pictures yesterday -- so apologies for being a day behind now. You didn't miss much; I wore jeans and a shirt and some shoes (and I definitely will do it again soon, so don't sweat it). This is what I'm wearing today, and as much as I love this dress (it has pockets), the most exciting thing happening here is this snazzy new haircut I got this morning. Bangs, y'all!

Broken record

skirt: jcrew via thrift, CA // shirt: forever 21 // cardigan: loft (exact) // 
scarf: gift from skins // boots: steve madden // bag: h&m (exact) // necklace: forever 21

In the last few days, my hair has gone from lovely defined curls to flat and static (even before I hacked at it with scissors this weekend), which is another way to know that Winter is right around the corner. In case there were any doubters in the crowd.
