Rose Blouse

Took a little stroll around the neighborhood today on the way to brunch. Just so happy that it really feels like fall finally and I can wear long sleeves again. This sheer rose colored shirt from Simply Be is a perfect transitional piece. The little tie details on the bell sleeve give it something special. It fits true to size and really looks luxe. Paired it with an easy faux-leather skirt and my favorite clutch. I hope you all have a perfect weekend!

Easy Sunday Black Midi Dress

I scored this amazing easy midi dress from Old Navy last year. It has become one of my staple garments in my closet – easily dressed up or down and it’s just so comfortable to wear. I’m really bummed they’re not making this dress anymore – I would easily buy another 5 just to always have it in my closet.

also I cut my bangs a bit shorter – I’m loving this style as I’m working on growing out my hair

Striped Sweater

This weekend was spent with friends and there was lots of PLANTS involved. The best being the morning we all spent at the Garfield Park Conservatory.

I haven’t purchased new clothes in so long, but CityChic just had a fantastic little sale and I snagged this super soft oversized striped sweater for casual weekend days. I love it so much and I’m also so happy to have some new items in my wardrobe.

So we’re back in action sort of here at InTheThickOfIt. at least for now. I hope to interact with some more folks. I’m trying to build up my instagram a bit too – so make sure to follow me there – I post lots of day-to-day stuff. It’s not as curated.

Yes my hair is longer. Yes I’m fatter. Yes I am happy.

Weekend wedding and I needed something pretty and chic. I went with this great Vince Camuto blue and black lace dress. Kept things simple with some faux suede peep toe wedges and a vintage coach bag I thrifted in New Orleans last year. My glasses are from See Eyewear my spouse is wearing a bolo tie by minima maxima

Wide Calf Boots Y’all!

How excited am I to finally find a pair of knee-high boots that REALLY fit my calves? BEYOND THRILLED. These beautiful leather boots are from Ted & Muffy – a UK boot brand that offers CUSTOM calf sizes on their boots. Additionally they offer sizing up to US 12 and wide shoe widths as well. I am so excited to see so many options for folks of all sizes. 

It’s been so long since I’ve had a pair of wide calf boots that was big enough to wear OVER a pair of jeans, that I just had to try this Demeter Boot with a pair of skinny jeans. Weekends are made for a casual look of skinny jeans, boots and an oversized top. But this style of boot could be dressed up quite well too – I love the versatility.
