Hi guys! If you’ve been following me on the blog for awhile, you know I go MIA on the blog when life changes seem to filter in. In this case, it was another huge work schedule change. Thankfully this time, it’s in a good way – going from 13 hour shifts to multiple 6-8 hour shifts throughout the week. On one hand, I’ll be working more though out the week, but won’t be near as exhausted at the end of the day. I think I’m going to go back to the way blogging used to be for awhile – where I post flatlays and #ootd photos as I take them, and update here in real time (at the same time as Instagram and Facebook). For awhile, I was doing a huge roundup when I had the time, but with the schedule change I’m not going to have a lot of whole free days to work on things. As you could probably see from my wish-list post yesterday, I do have a little spring in my step to dive into new arrivals for spring! While they won’t actually start hitting stores in full til mid-end February, I get excited just to see sweaters in spring colors. 🙂
My first flatlay “back” is featuring this awesome shaker knit sweater. It has a ballet neck (could be worn off shoulder) and is the perfect length to do either a front tuck or wear like normal. The neckline and loose knit give more interest also, and I just love the way it looks. The sweater also comes in olive and black colors.
I also wanted to share the “IT” bootie for fall! I waited and waited to purchase these bad boys (full price they run $150.. ouch.), but when they went on sale I didn’t hesitate. They truly are everything! Reviews suggest sizing up 1/2 size. I went with my normal size since sometimes I need to size down, and I don’t think they fit too small. I would say if you normally are in between your regular size or a size smaller, go with the regular (or vice versa if you sometimes size up ~ go 1/2 size up). And there are ten color options to choose from!
