Waves of Grain

Monday already! Mine started out with getting my packages jammed in the post office drop box door followed by a free latte, so I guess that cancels out to a neutral morning before work.  And I feel like neutral is the best you can hope for on a Monday!  I had a really mellow but really nice weekend though so with those memories still fresh in my mind I'm ready to tackle another week!


Outfit Details: Dress - Vintage - for sale in shop here // Boots - Bamboo // Socks - Target

    This weekend we had gorgeous weather! While we are starting to see snow on the mountain tops in the distance, it was in the 70s here.  I baked, sampled lots of pumpkin beer, did a bit of shop work, and of course, watched the season finale of Breaking Bad!
     On to the outfit.  I wore this to work last week, and while I know 60s shift style or tent dresses sometimes aren't the most figure flattering, their comfort sure makes up for it! This dress is for sale in the shop and I just love the neutral florals paired with the high ruffled neck!  The sky was gorgeous while taking these but its so hard to catch sunsets on film when there's an item (uhm, me) in the foreground. 
      Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!

Mellow Yellow

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a giveaway on Marlen's blog for a shop credit to Nautie Godiva Vintage! Whenever I find vintage I love, I usually put it in my shop right away instead of keeping it for myself, so it was extra nice to get to pick something out just for me! Eileen recently closed her shop so I lucked out and swooped up this gorgeous floral eyelet dress just in the nick of time!
                       Outfit Details: Dress - Nautie Godiva Vintage // Heels - Blowfish Shoes
 
 I absolutely love the cut of the dress as it fits like a glove and has such a pretty full skirt.  I was originally planning on taking up the hem, but now I am thinking I like it just the way it is.  So a huge thanks to Eileen for letting me choose such a pretty dress and to Marlen for always hosting the best giveaways on her blog! I actually just realized I won these Blowfish shoes in a giveaway last year as well, so this whole outfits is a lucky one!
     I hope you are all having a great week so far!

Fall Roundup

It feels exciting to finally have a seasons worth of blog posts to look back on.  To welcome the official start of fall, I decided to go through my photo archives to find some of my favorite looks from last fall! Sometimes it is easy to forget that having a "style" blog isn't about just outfits though.  Each one of these photos evokes such great memories from when the photo was taken.  I can still see who I was with, where we ate, what we saw, and even what kind of mood I was in for each and every one of these.









Here are a few things I am looking forward to with the new season:
1. Cozy sweaters
2. Colorful socks and tights
3. A mountain drive to see all of the changing leaves
4. Pumpkin ales and seasonal beers
5. Starting to work my vintage shop full time and preparing for the holiday season
6. Flannel sheets and blanket layers
7. My sweet foster kitty Pookie hopefully finding the best home ever!
8. The colors burgundy, burnt orange, cobalt blue, and mustard yellow.
9. Perhaps a visit from my parents!
10. R's birthday!

What are you looking forward to?

Friday's Favorite Finds {Vol. 6}

I missed last Friday's Favorite Finds since my town was mostly underwater, so now I have two whole weeks of inspiration and finds to share!

I check out the daily deal site Zulily (<-- personal invite link) a few times a week, and this week's favorite was this awesome and cozy looking weekender bag, perfect for short mountain getaways!

 I wish this lavender ice coffee from A Beautiful Mess was sitting next to me at work right now! I know the blogging world is all about the pumpkin spice right now, but this sounds like it would give that a run for its money and you can make it at home!
I've got my eye on a few statement necklaces for fall, as I am picturing them paired with a long sleeve blouse under a sweater.  This one is super cute and is only $13.99!

I love reading menus and seeing the insides of different restaurants, so I really enjoyed this article from Open Table on the best rated Top 100 restaurants in the US.  It was also fun to see if I had any near me to try out!

I may have just "accidentally" bought these.  I pinned them to my wishlist on pinterest and then actually purchased them within three minutes flat.  I had some rewards points saved up and free shipping so these babies cost me a whole $35. They seemed like the perfect way to bring floral into fall and winter!

I recently discovered photographer Kevin Russ's work and it is stunning! I am definitely ordering the buffalo print, but have my eye on at least three more! You can see his whole gallery on Society6 here!

The online boutique eShakti just launched their fall line, and I think this skirt has to be my favorite from it! I think it would have endless remix potential for fall and I love that all of their clothing is customizable!

This banana cream fudge recipe is so pretty and sounds easy to make! I think little bags and fudge would make a nice gift for the holidays, so I am going to practice some recipes in the meantime!

 Spotted: DREAM HOME! I came across blogger and designer Kelli Murray's home tour while browsing Design*Sponge and I think it is the best house I have ever seen.  Bright whites with cozy wooden touches and lots of art. 

Speaking of dream homes, I am planning an IKEA trip this weekend to get some things I need for my apartment and shop. This is my first time I am going in to the store actually planning on spending money instead of watching R spend money, so I am kind of excited! Hope you all have a fun weekend planned!

Polka Stripes

I love me some print mixing, but when the prints are already mixed for me on a single piece of clothing I say even better! My mom sent me this amazing vintage dress that has a polka dot print mixed with stripes and I don't think it could get any cuter! Unfortunately, it is just a tad bit snug on me around the waist (must stop eating pizza + snacks all weekend long) so it is now up for grabs in the shop!  She always sends me the best vintage finds!
Outfit Details: Dress - Vintage, for sale in shop here! // Red Oxfords - c/o American Apparel 
// Sunnies - Lulu*s

Anyway, two posts in a row with my new sunnies from Lulus.  Don't say I didn't warn you.  There was absolutely zero sun to block on this particular day too but I wore them anyway.  Though red isn't at the top of my favorite color list, I think its my favorite pop of color to add to outfits, it always adds a bit of fun.
     I can't believe we are over halfway through September already.  Time is just flying by and while I am certainly welcoming a bit of fall weather, I am not welcoming winter in the least!
Hope you're all having a beautiful week!
