Cheap Thrills

Cheap Thrills Roundup

I’m nursing a wicked cold right now, so that means no gym time, no hanging out with friends, no real-life shopping. Just me, my computer, Netflix, and a never-ending glass of orange juice. And online shopping. IMO, online shopping only counts if it’s stuff I could actually afford and would wear in real life. Which is why you might see these items in an upcoming outfit post.

Sources: 1) H&M; 2) Forever21; 3) Forever21; 4) Forever21; and 5) Gap.

1) Before we’re up to our shins in snow and it’s “skinny pants + knee high boots” every single freaking day, I want to go wide and baggy (and I’m betting they’re completely comfortable).

2) A fuzzy black cardigan is my new “casual blazer”.

3) I’ve seen quite a few great denim skirts in this shape, but a dark corduroy version works for the office and the weekend.

4) I’m thinking a slim turtleneck underneath and a pencil skirt. Yea? Nay?

5) Gray sweatshirts are my favorite no-brainer. So one with a little bit of detailing is a requirement this fall.

 

I Blue Myself

When colorblocking became a major trend in 2012 (or 2011 – I just had a birthday so I’m old and I can’t remember) I was a bit miffed. Because I’ve always worn bright colors together. And when I was doing it in 8th grade, there wasn’t a fancy name for it.

Well, now I propose a new trend for the new year – Monochromatic. And not just all black. All grey, all blue, and yes…all pink. I just need a fancy name for it. Monochromaticism? Linear colorway? I’ll work on it.

The Clash

I’m sure more than one person thought I was colorblind when I wore this on Monday. Days later, I’m still trying to decide if this is a genius color pairing, or just a big  mess.

(Almost) Monochromatic

You know the best part of getting a new bed? Deciding to get a new bed and then picking it out. You know the worst part of getting a new bed? Absolutely everything else that follows, from picking up the bed to getting rid of the old one to putting together the new one.  I’m still sore from all the heavy lifting. But I am sleeping well in my new bed!

Don’t I look well-rested?
