I stole Charlie Brown's shirt (kinda)

Outfit: Sweater, thrifted; pants, Target; boots, Macy's.

Doesn't the background look like one of those corny 80s backdrops? I love that I found a really cool clearing about two minutes from my house for these shots.

I know this outfit isn't mind blowing or anything, but isn't this the sweetest sweater ever?? I found it at a thrift store awhile back, complete with shoulder pads. It's finally getting to be sweater season, so I've been wearing it to work quite a bit over the past few weeks.

And I love mixing black and brown. (Like the lamest rebel ever would.) I just get an earthy vibe looking at all these colors together, and it feels relaxed but still fun. This may or may not be my last outdoor outfit post for a bit, just because it's supposed to get freezing now. Buh bye, leaves and jacket-free days.

I'm usually not a fan of the cold, but I'm just thankful to see all the seasons, and thankful to be alive. I almost got into a serious car accident last week. To make a long story short: I hydroplaned while driving 70 mph. My car spun in circles on a major highway, with 18-wheelers approaching. I somehow came to a stop on the shoulder of the road, no damage done. I was shaken up, but relieved nothing happened.

I buried the lede a bit, I know. Just trying to be a little more of an optimist right now, and trying to set some life and project goals that are really meaningful. I know it's corny as hell, but carpe diem, guys. :)

AND just a quick reminder, Pittsburgh area readers can enter to win admission for two to the Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer on Nov. 22. Contest ends Friday.

  1. I love wearing black and brown together too! Drives my mom nuts because she believes int he old rules of no white after labor day, black and brown don't mix, neither do black and navy, etc. LOL!

  3. That crash sounds terrifying! I've been in a car that skidded on ice once, and I'm pretty amazed I didn't literally pee my pants.
    You look really cute in your Charlie Brown sweater. I really like that kind of pattern, it's very Missoni.

  6. Omg, I'm so glad you're okay! That's scary-it's always a sobering experience when so many things could've gone wrong but for some reason...didn't. That color palette looks so good on you, girl. You've officially inspired me to go thrifting for sweaters!

  8. So a couple of things:

    1) I laughed out loud once i noticed your background DID look like an 80s backdrop haha
    2) I now need a charlie brown sweater in my life
    3) and lastly, whaaaat, that car story is terrifying!! You are one lucky lady to just go through all that and end up on the shoulder of the highway, like nothing happened. Ugh, so glad you're alright!

    1. Yeah, I really didn't notice the background too much until I was editing the photos. And then I noticed it was totally reminiscent of something from Awkward Family Photos. Haha.
