Outfits of the Month?


To Post or Not to Post?

I’ve been terrible at doing Outfits of the Week posts! My last one was in August? Geez.

Do you guys want me to keep doing these updates, or do you prefer other types of posts—and if so, let me know which kind in the comments section!


The Real Life means sometimes you don’t make the bed and you’re running late and you have sunglasses on your head and a to-go bag for a performance after work and you’re just a mess.

  • Beige sweater, Target
  • Dark wash skinny jeans, Gap
  • Brown booties, DSW



Other times The Real Life means getting your s*** together: making your bed, curling your hair, confidently sporting a denim vest? Ha!

  • Black skinny jeans, Gap
  • Brown and white striped top, Target from 1,000 years ago
  • Denim vest, Nordstrom rack
  • Black booties, DSW



It feels like half of my wardrobe is being used for Love/Perfect (we did our own costumes), so I am wearing some oldies-but-goodies lately.

  • Teal floral top, Kohl’s
  • Blue skinny jeans, Gap
  • Beige booties, Target



I look possessed by a demon in this photo! 🙂

  • Blue flowy rank, Kohl’s
  • Pink oversized sweater, Target
  • Dark wash skinny jeans, Gap
  • Brown booties, DSW



I’m throwing this one in for good measure! It was from my 30th birthday and I felt super-cute. I’m budgeting hardcore lately so the lack of any new pieces has made my outfits feel lackluster…

  • Burnt-orange dress, Forever 21
  • Cardigan, Francesca’s
  • Gold jewelry, Etsy (necklace) and Forever 21  (bracelets, rings, earrings)
  • Brown leggings, Target
  • Brown booties, DSW

So please tell me:

    Love the teal floral top and the red dress! I am also horrible at doing outfit of the day posts- I have a good camera and I usually end up just taking the picture on my phone in the mirror like this too because it’s so much easier. Lol!

    It was your outfit posts that first attracted me to your blog, so yes, please continue them. But now I feel I know you, cheering your success in the theater, love that you have a good new man in your life, share your food appreciation, and your artistic style!
