OOTD: On The Street Where I Live









Blazer, Dooney & Burke Bag: Vintage | Belt: Thrifted | Skirt, Tights: Target | Gingham Shirt: Old Navy | Booties: Jeffrey Campbell | Bow Ring Uncommon Goods

These are the first photos taken in my new neighborhood! :) I’ll miss the grungy, urban setting around the loft, but our little neighborhood has been looking so gorgeous with tons of fall foliage–a trade of scenery I was ready to make!

I usually love the look of a good blazer on other ladies, but for whatever reason, they never feel quite right on me. I’ve collected a few over the years, but this cute beige blazer recently came to me from the very depths of my mom’s closet. It feels so luxurious and thick–perfect for the increasingly cold temperatures around here. It’s inspired me to try again to make the look my own. It doesn’t hurt that this one fits like a glove! I feel like I need a big, fluffy, light pink flower pinned on it rather than my trusty teddy bear brooch.

    I’m a huge fan of both blue gingham button ups and blazers so this outfit looks down right like an autumn dream to me. Glad you are enjoying your new home.

      This is totally the kind of outfit I’d love on someone else, but might not naturally pick for myself. It was a conscious choice to be more thoughtful and I ended up loving it! Thank you, Kristian <3

      Isn’t it?! I bought it from a boutique in Springfield, MO when I was in college about 5-6 years ago. I wish I had any idea who made it so I could give credit. :( I know it was a local high school girl, but that’s it.

    That brooch is SO sweet! I always have a hard time finding blazers that don’t make me look like a linebacker. This one was totally made for you!
