Circle Scarves and Speaking Whale

This outfit is me officially jumping head first into fall.
I’ve been dying to wear these boots for at least 2 months.
And this scarf! The circle scarf is a revelation.
I’m in love.
Picture the outfit without it. Booo-ring.
With the scarf? It’s practically fashion forward.

I win the award for wearing super basic stuff, adding one accessory
(i.e. scarf, bold necklace)
and pretending like I’m a fashion blogger. 
Just go with it.
It does wonders for my confidence.

Sweater: Goodwill, $3.50
Leggings: TJ Maxx, $5.99
Boots: Go Jane, $29.99
Scarf: Aerie Outlet Store, $9.99

I read somewhere that it’s least attractive to take a picture head on.
And yet I keep doing it.
All other poses just look, well, too posed. You know?

On to the weekend update.

Friday night my guy invited me on a hot date to see…wait for it…
Finding Nemo in 3D!
So I did what any loving girlfriend would do,
I invited 3 more people from the 12 and under crowd.

I don’t need to do a review of the movie because duh,
everyone has seen it and it’s still super adorable.
The whole experience was a preview of parenthood.
It’s date night, but the kids are there too.
And our theater seating:


Uber romantic, sitting three seats away from each other.

Side note:
Ryan Reynolds just came on TV urging people to 
protect themselves against melanoma by wearing sunscreen.
You know what would make the women of America wear sunscreen?
If every time you applied sunscreen you could enter to win a day with Ryan Reynolds applying sunscreen all over you.

That would certainly motivate us. 
Am I right or am I right?

Happy Monday, folks.
Let’s all hope this week flies by.


  • I’m laughing at the sunscreen comment!! I’d never get my pale skin sunburned again if that were the case 🙂 My bf got tickets to Finding Nemo and we’ll probably go this weekend, so excited! Lovee your scarf also!

    • There is just something so different about seeing movies in the theatre. It’s so much better. I’m sure you’ll have a great time. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Seriously BAHAAAAAA at the Ryan Reynolds thing! I saw that yesterday and pretty much died. I might have thought the same thing! 🙂

    And looove the outfit & the boots girlie!!

    • I mean, thats why they chose him to do it, is it not? It’s all I could think about until his beautiful face got off the screen hahaha

  • Cute outfit! I can’t wait to wear fall clothes, it’s just still way too hot here though!
    I want to see Finding Nemo in 3D so bad!

    • I’m so grateful that it’s finally cooling off here! I bought those boots in July (who knows why, to torture myself maybe) and I was so glad to finally wear them.

  • i love your idea,,,,sunscreen sales would be going through the roof!! 🙂 hahaha love it!

    • I know! I really hope he succeeds and being pale becomes super cool again. I thought I had a shot when twilight was all the rage but I still think looking tan is a thing.

  • You are so cute!! Both in the outfit and with the sunscreen comment. I love it. Also…those boots were $29.99?!?! Seriously. I die. So cute.

    • Honestly, I’ve bought a lot of shoes from over the years and they are really good quality. These are “vegan leather” which is obviously the fancy name for pleather. Always google “ coupon code” before checkout because there is always a coupon for at least 20% off.

  • I LOVE your outfit!! Fall is my favorite season for clothes! 🙂

    • Oh definitely. It’s really the only season that the 3/4 sleeve sweater works. Once November hits, it’s long sleeves all the way. I have no idea why I own so many 3/4 sleeves when I freeze my butt off trying to wear them later in the winter.

  • LOVVVVE the outfit

  • hahaha yes to the Ryan Reynolds thing. that’s a definite motivator.

    also, you’re a lucky duck for finding that sweater at Goodwill. I live in things like that in the winter but can’t find a damn one at thrift stores.

  • Oh I adore your blog! Love that outfit…the boots and the scarf are so cute! And I absolutely love your sunscreen idea…any way we can make that happen???

  • Hey girl, I just found your blog through LIY! Just became your newest follower and I can’t wait to catch up on some of your posts. 🙂


  • Hey hey! I just found your blog… you’re adorable!

    I busted out my boots last week and I LOVE it! I’ve been waiting since the beginning of August to wear them. Here’s to boots and a scarf to brighten any outfit. 🙂
