A couple weekends ago, Tommy and I headed out to San Francisco for a last-minute trip to see his family. Unfortunately the reason’s weren’t the best, as his grandfather isn’t doing very well right now. We got to spent time with his aunt and uncles who live in the area, and see his grandparents, so it was a really special trip.
Our small town has quite a few festivals throughout the year, and a couple weekends ago was the Harvest Moon Festival. There were country singers, food vendors, mini ponies for the kids, and lots of people set up to sell their artwork; Tommy and I had a great time walking around and chowing down on some Texas BBQ! The festival was held at our town square, which is home to the old Granbury Theatre. Since I was wearing a monochrome back and while outfit, I fit in perfectly with the Theatre entrance, and naturally had to take photos there.
I don’t usually wear a lot of animal prints, but when I saw this A.L.C. sweater on Poshmark a few months ago, I was drawn to the colors. The black and tan tiger print sweater (which can be found on sale here in size M) resembled a more interesting version of plain stripes, and the neutral color palette is just my style.
While some states are already experiencing sweater-weather, Texas is still hanging on to the summer heat. I took advantage of the cooler, rainy morning this weekend and put on my J Brand leather vest, and a hat to protect my hair from the rain (obviously). By the time the afternoon rolled around, the sun came out and the vest came off.
Everyone knows that the statement necklace has been “in” for a while now, and it has gone through the evolutions: neon colors, chunky golds, pretty pastels…now, it’s all about the silver boho-style necklaces, and the bigger the better. I had started to see them on bloggers and decided I wanted one, but then I saw the prices.
Well, it’s the first of September, which means it’s time for a roundup of what I bought in August (and of course, how much I spent on it). I’ll start with the plain-Jane white tee shirt I got from TJMaxx for $12. Pretty much anyone who knows me will know that Vince is my favorite overall brand, and I’m always looking for their basics at TJ, so when the yellow tag sale rolled around in the beginning of August, I was able to snatch up this shirt.
