Finally Out Of The Closet-Hype Wedges

Remember back in September when I purchased these wedges?

I still sort of love them...they make me smile, but as I predicted then, I've had a hard time pairing them with anything. However, now that I've started to dip into my autumn/winter clothes they seem to make a little more sense in my closet. Or at least I like them with this little plaid jacket...

Loeffler-Randall for Target Purse-Swap
Luxe Jacket-thrifted
Pilcro Jeans-Anthropologie
Hype Shoes-Thrifted

Which also happens to be a little tricky to work with. With just the jeans and turtleneck it comes off a little lumberjack-ish. Yet somehow the shoes seem to perk it up and make it seem like I should be carrying a purse instead of a pick ax...

Ahh, fall...

Last Of The Warm Weather?

Well, a cold front has finally moved into central Texas last night and I can't tell you how lovely and crisp it feels! I know most of you have already been enjoying cooler weather for a while now and we have had lower temps as well but nothing this cold for a very long time! Hooray for fall and winter! That being said, I'm sure we'll still have plenty of days in the 70's and 80's but for now I'm celebrating.

Anyway, this is not what I'm currently wearing, but it's from earlier this week...

Silk Tunic from Lil
Sweater Vest from Moth/second hand
Leggings from ???
Shoes from Qupid

This is the perfect outfit for my busy days! I can go from work to the dance studio, (I teach dance as a second job,) do some grocery shopping and not look like I came directly from the gym. (I admit, I dress like the biggest slob when I'm on the treadmill, and only slightly better when I go to yoga, but that's a different post entirely!)

I kept my accessories minimal...

Purse from Walmart (years ago!)
Ring from Charming Charlie

When working with kids I try to be a little careful to not come off to "hard," but I love the edgy touches that they add! I couldn't resist!

Well, I guess I'll break out a sweater and pants today...I wonder how long it'll be before I start dreaming of summer again...
