1 and 2 October 2014: Dressing Room Fun

I’m sitting here, shivering, in flannel and a shawl. My landlord has been replacing the boiler and I think I have heat, but since I like things chilly, I haven’t tried. But it felt weird to squint at the photos on my phone and realize I was going out with bare legs just a few days ago.


Harry David shell, Old Navy Flirt skirt, ANA cardigan, Keds Champions

This was one of those days where I went through several outfits and finally went with something that worked rather than something good.


Gap tank, Old Navy Flirt skirt, anthropologie chevron sweater, anthropologie draped cardigan, Aerosole wedges

A bit of sparkle! I like how this one came together.

I had Friday off so I took a very long walk to hit the consignment and shoe stores.


I put this back, but I’m tempted to go back for it. $13, I like the fit a lot, I’m a fan of bows. I’m not sure what bottoms I could wear it with, though – jeans are fine, I suspect my denim skirt would work. But is it too dark for the khaki button up? Hmm.


Ralph Lauren sparkle sweater. I loved the color and fit, and really loved the neckline, but it was scratchy and too short. Alas.



Danskos! They’ll be $15 if they’re still there tomorrow. I’m tempted. I love this Mary Jane clog look. I’m debating what I’d wear them with, though. Hmm.

And then off to DSW. I have a $20 off card that expires next week, and I’ve been wanting brown boots.



Bare Tracks. I think I like the shorter leg, but I’m not sure if that opens up more wear options or fewer. Are they too cowboy? I don’t want cowboy, I know that.


Steve Madden Girl. Not cowboy! I think I like them a lot? My hesitancy is that I had to size down to an 8 for my heel not to flap (wearing regular socks, which is my norm with jeans or over tights), plus I didn’t need the wide calf version. I walked around a bunch and worried that I started to feel my little toe rubbing on the side. But if I size back to 8.5, I’m afraid they will be too big. I’m so torn.


I’m half tempted to use my card on accessories. Like this awesome thick, warm plaid scarf/wrap. It’s $30, and I keep telling myself I could probably buy fabric for half the price and make my own, but this is right there, you know? I really want a lot of plaid this year. I always want plaid in autumn, I know, but I’m really all about it this year, ha.

  1. The striped shirt with the bow detail looks like it was made for you! Fits perfectly!
    As far as the Dansko clogs are concerned…while I’m not a fan of Dansko’s, I am a huge clog fan! Love love love clogs! I give zero cares if “everybody” hates clogs or if clogs are so “yesterday”. I dig clogs. Always have, always will.
    Dankso’s can be challenging to walk in. The rocking sole can force you to walk too fast & with the classic clog – can friggin take out a perfectly good ankle! So take a solid walk in those clogs down the length of the store and back before you buy to see how they mess with your gait.


    • It is so damn cute. Maybe I’ll visit this week and see if it’s still there. I’ll wear a skirt to see how it works, maybe.

      That is such good info, thank you!! I have a pair of Dansko sandals and it took me awhile to get used to them – that must be why. I’ve never been a clog person, mostly because I’d only see clogs without backs and I need backs, but I’ve been digging styles like this lately. I will definitely do a lot of walking practice before I decide if I like them or not.
