The Formula

Matthew and I have been constantly on-the-go for the past week since we're tying to mark off everything on his "Austin to-do list" before he heads back to Massachusetts. We've been all over the city to different food trucks, restaurants, parks, downtown, comedy clubs, the movies... phew! I can't remember the last time I went out this much. I mean, I stayed up past 10pm last night and started to question who I was, y'all. Serious stuff.

Since things have been so fast paced lately I haven't had much time to pick out outfits in the morning, so this ensemble you see here has basically been my formula for getting dressed. Long sleeve top + jeans + boots and just add a jacket and scarf for warmth. I can't wait to slow things down when I go to my parents' house tomorrow and don't have to worry about anything other than which sides to eat with my turkey (the answer is all the sides). I hope you all have a relaxing holiday as well!

Life at 24



Another year, another birthday! This one actually kind of snuck up on me. I guess because for the first time in a couple years I'm not having an "omg I'm getting old" moment. Looking back now, freaking out over turning 22 & 23 was ridiculous, so why stress over turning 24? I'm aware that I'm getting older, but I don't feel older. Sure, more & more of my Facebook friends are getting married and having babies while I still live with roommates and have no desire of doing either of those things for a long time, but that's just my own personal pace. I'm in absolutely no hurry to grow up; you could even say I'm doing my best to resist it, haha. I'm just trying to enjoy these moments as a twenty-something-year-old one day at a time.

So here's to 24, I hope it's a good one! :)

All that wishing for cooler weather finally paid off, y'all. For the past couple weeks I've been waking up to temperatures in the 30s, and it even snowed in north Texas! So basically I wished too hard, and now we're dealing with winter in November. Oops. 

Since I didn't think we'd be getting this type of weather until way later, my box of sweaters is still sitting in a closet at my parents' house which I won't have access to until Thanksgiving. Thankfully, I've at least had this cardigan with me which has seriously been my savior. It feels like I'm wearing a cozy blanket in public (major plus points in my book)! Like those people in that Snuggie commercial, just not as cool. ;)

Remix Roundup | Slouchy Cardigan

slouchy neutral cardigan

I've had this cardigan foreverrr, and it's still in the same condition that I bought it in! I always have it in my purse when I go out just in case I get cold (which is all the time), and I love how it's neutral color basically goes with anything I wear whether it be casual or more dressy. It was also my go-to piece of clothing during my trip to Seattle back in 2012. I need more wardrobe staples like this in my life.

One of my favorite parts about thrifting is that the rule of "sticking to your size" is basically thrown out the window. That and everything is dirt cheap, of course. I found this plaid shirt in the little boys section at my local thrift store, and it was the perfect fit! Sure it's a size XL and the sleeves don't exactly reach my wrists, but hey, it works. I mean, a plaid shirt for fall + it's only $2 + it's cozy = I should probably buy this. It just makes perfect sense, y'all.

I actually wore this outfit right before a major cold front hit Austin yesterday. I was not prepared for 35 degree weather after weeks of glorious 70 degree temperatures. My gloves and beanies and scarves are hidden somewhere at my parents' house, so I'm just sitting here freezing to death. And yet, I've been wishing for this weather since fall started, so can I really complain? Apparently, yes.
