An office appropriate fall outfit. What I wore on October 1st and a sad goodbye

An office propriate fall outfit

A fall outfit: Poutine and Prada fall 2019 Aritzia Michael Kors Sam Edelman

Well, it’s October. Fall is officially upon us. I’m scraping the frost off my car in the morning and the air is starting to smell like snow. On the positive side – it’s time for office appropriate fall outfit planning!

I found this Michael Kors skirt at a consignment shop last week for a mere $25! I was so excited and immediately started planning all the great office appropriate fall outfits I would be able to create with it. On this day I paired it with a slim fitting black turtle neck and ankle boots. As I was throwing on my trusty leather jacket I spied this scarf hanging in the back of the closet and decided to wind it around my neck a few times to finish off the look and keep me warm. I liked the resulting look.

Slow Fashion Season Challenge: The Last Update

Slow Fashion Season

This year’s Slow Fashion Season challenge ended on September 21st. I explained the challenge in detail here, if you’d like to read about it.

The Slow Fashion Season Challenge was created by Collaction and the basics are that, from June 21st to September 21st, participants were to buy no new clothing. Second hand shopping and swaps are allowed. The point of the challenge is to draw attention to the wasteful nature of fast fashion.

Outfit Round-up: Monday

Outfit Round-up: Monday Camel blazer and Aritzia dress and Sam Edelman boots; What are the best fall outfits

I am not a Monday person. I do not greet the start of the work week with energy, goals, and peppiness. On Mondays my outfits tend to go one of two ways:

  1. Comfortable because the exhaustion is real;

  2. Power outfit to motivate me to kick this week’s a$$.

Everlane Review: a review of the pieces I’ve purchased myself

Everlane Review: Everlane How to Wear; Everlane What to Buy; What is Everlane known for?

I’ve written a couple Everlane reviews before but I was sent the pieces for those posts. Today I want to talk you through the Everlane pieces I’ve purchased with my own money. All four of the pieces I’m going to talk about today I purchased second hand and two are no longer available on the Everlane website. I think the review has merit in spite of that because it speaks to the quality of Everlane garments in general. So, that said, let’s get into my third Everlane review!
