Back in business

I have officially stepped out of my blogging hiatus; blowing the dust off and starting this new year.  My parents got me a lovely camera for Christmas, so I cannot wait to start taking my outfit pictures with that, instead of my iPhone.  In fact today's outfit picture will be the last one taken with the iPhone.  So, let's shed a tear...  okay, I'm good.

A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through Google Reader catching up on blogs.  On a whim, I started following the Quiksilver blog, the brand famous for their surf, swim, and extreme sports wear, but also, some pretty chic pieces for women.  I was inspired by this outfit:

I am frequently inspired by other bloggers, and knew I had the tools to pull of this look.

Two of the items in this outfit were amazing cheap scores.  The top was on the clearance rack at Anthropologie for $19.95 and I got another $10.00 knocked off of it because there was a stain on it, and it totally came out when I washed it.  Also, the skinny jeans were an amazing steal.  They were $29.99 on the clearance rack at Express, originally $98.00.  They are as comfortable as leggings, with lots of softness and lots of stretch.  Also, the waist is a little higher on these, which I really like. 

Top: Anthropologie
Skinny Jeans: Express
Necklace: Nashville Boutique, Pangea
Boots: Anthropologie (by the way, these are "the boots")

I also wanted to show off me all bundled up in this outfit.  It was actually pretty cold that day.

Scarf: American Apparel
Hat: Gift, Forever 21

I love this coat.  It is so adorable, and has a great vintage look to it.  I took a huge chance and ordered it from about a year and a half ago.  It is long, which is perfect for the cold Nashville winters, and has some really great vintage details to it.  (hello!  collar, buttons, love it!)

I am working on finding a new place to take pictures.  As much as I love our kitchen, its not working for me.  Got suggestions? Please send them my way!


  1. I love the second outfit!!! it's so pretty and simple!!

  2. SO Perfect! An excellent combo! I love it when I see a combo of things I have but never tired! Great job!
