Outfits of the Week


Finally Sweater Weather

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! With high temperatures in the 60s and even 70s for the past couple weeks, snowfall and lows in the teens have been welcomed by this winter-lover… minus the slipping and falling on my booty in the ice. Whoops! And Harper loves [to eat] the snow!

Anyway, before we take part in our pre-Christmas sushi-delivery dinner tradition and then head to Philly for holiday festivities, here are some sweater-weather outfits from the week.

Also: An exciting $2,500 giveaway!

How I Get Stitch Fix Items for FREE!

Rack Up Referral Credit

When it comes to Stitch Fix, I learned early on that it might not be totally worth it to use the service unless you downright hate shopping or have no time to invest in your wardrobe. The clothing can be pricey and not any better quality than your average store.

BUT it’s definitely worth it if your items are FREE. Let me show you how I do it.

Stitch Fix #6: Patterned Blouse, Skinny Jeans, Brown Suede Booties, Patched Sweater, Fall Fashion | THE REAL LIFE Blog | fashion, fitness, food, lifestyle, Colorado

For my stylist Leah, I decided to create a new Pinterest board focused on Fall fashion: sweaters, scarves, boots, etc.

See what I did keep, though!
