I have two things of good news!
1 – I got my first PSL of the season. I personally refuse to get one until October starts. I also got it iced because Southern California. I do not even have to explain that. I have a confession though, I do like PSLs like any other basic BUT I am not in love with them. They are good but I usually cannot finish them. White chocolate mochas are more my jam AND YOU CAN BET I am all about peppermint white mochas during the holidays.
2 – MY SOMETHING NAVY STUFF CAME IN! For all of you who have been living under a rock, Arielle Charnas and her blog Something Navy launched her own clothing line at Nordstrom full of elevated basic goodness and practically broke the internet within minutes of her launch. I got everything I wanted except for one, the yellow sweater that was all over her insta. I got the pink though so it is okay.
The top I have on below I was ready to buy ever since I saw her style it on insta. Such a perfect fall piece and can be worn at work or casually. I will do a whole haul on my stories most likely tomorrow to show my other pieces. She already started doing sneak peeks of her November collection and I am already obsessed. How many sweaters can one girl really have? Because I am about to stock up and it is not even cold enough to wear them. My jeans below are also Something Navy and they are so cute. They are mid-rise and have a slit hem at the bottom. Sometimes simple details are the best ones. I will link both items below but it may not be there when you click it, just being honest! This stuff sold fast! There are however quite a few sizes left in the jeans. (Sizing note: this top is a small and I probably could have gone XS if I wanted. The jeans are a 4. I am generally a 2-4 but the 2’s were pretty tight. The blue jeans I will show you later though are bigger and I got a 2).

On Wednesdays we wear an outfit again… (I really hope you understood that reference)
Anyways… It’s Wear Again Wednesday where I take a previously worn outfit and change it up a bit. For those of you who know me I rarely wear the exact same outfit more than once unless it’s one I REALLY love. But I’ve been trying to recycle my outfits instead of shopping and it’s working however, it does take some work. It can be so hard to just stare at your closet and see all the same clothes all the time. Imagination is needed to create new outfits! I saw the sleeve of one of my chambray tops sticking out of my overstuffed closet and saw the bottom of my red striped t-shirt dress and this outfit instantly came to me. I bought this dress and necklace last year for the Fourth of July. It’s a combination that is pretty noticeable when worn again so I changed the shoes and added the chambray top and left it open like a cardigan. Although very similar to the original version, I liked it better today!
If any of you share my feelings about repeating outfits try this out! It is almost like a challenge to myself to reinvent something I have already worn!
As for shopping this look I can tell you where everything is from, but it is all older so I can’t link the exact items: dress- Target / chambray top- Forever 21 / statement necklace- Charming Charlie / sandal wedges- Madden Girl by Steve Madden
I bought this super cute black, lace midi skirt like forever ago in hopes to recreate another outfit I found on Pinterest. I haven’t worn it because every time I have tried I felt fat. Finally yesterday I wore it! I was so happy with how it came out and it looked pretty similar to the Pinterest one! The skirt I got from Forever 21, the tank is from Target, the necklace is from Charming Charlie, the wedge sandals are Madden Girl by Steve Madden, and the purse is my usual Michael Kors. This was really a fun yet sophisticated work outfit that can be dressed up more with actual heels, or dressed down with flat sandals.
This is the Pinterest outfit
And this is my inspired version of it
I LOVE pinning!
