Going down in blaze of glory

What better way to look casually preppy or preppy casual than to wear a blazer and jeans. Amirite? It’s a casually cool and comfortable look.

Striped blazer, given to me; ruffled button up tee, given to me; ripped jeans, old; backpack purse, old; black cat eye sunglasses, Rue21; red floral necklace, Anne Taylor Loft; red chandelier earrings, old; sketchers, Ross.

A friend gave me a bag of clothes a month ago and since then discovered she has leukemia. Please send prayers!

Today I styled and photographed some outfits put together with things she gave me plus some of my own stuff.  (Just one featured today.)

Before fall is totally gone, I had to get in a bit of leaf throwing!

Yep. I’m a dork. And I’m okay with that. Then just like that, back to smooth jazz, real cool…

Thank you for stopping by, and happy leaf throwing!

How to style a basic tee two ways

This post is all about the basic tee and how to style one.

T-shirts are foundational pieces that can be worn alone or layered up for cooler weather. As we transition away from summer, it’s important to have different layers for different types of weather, even same day weather changes.

Look 1:

Navy tee, c/o Mott & Bow, here. Denim jacket, old; olive jeans, Kohl’s, old; Kate Spade New York handbag, gifted to me, old; feather earrings, Kohl’s; Suede sneakers, Ross, old.

A typical fall morning is cool, so you’re likely to be wearing pants or capris. A light jacket is a good idea most mornings. It’s also time to start pulling out your closed toe shoes like these blue suede sneakers.

As afternoon comes on, you may want to change things up for a cooler outfit. Ditch the jacket and closed toe shoes. Knot up the tee. Add a hat if it’s sunny.

Knotted tee, c/o Mott and Bow, here. Patterned jean shorts, Kohl’s; rose gold purse, Ross, old. White laser cute wedge sandals, Ross, last year; Wish you were here sunhat, Marshall’s, old.

Weather is a fickle thing in the fall time. And in Oregon, for that matter.

This tee was from Mott & Bow. It is really good quality soft, silky cotton for an affordable price. It’s so comfortable, I could sleep in it. (And have!)

Thank you to any and all who sent prayers our way for the fires in Oregon. I am happy to say we finally got rain, which helped clear all the smoke from the sky so we can breath non hazardous air again.
