Random Roundup

What a week! Thanks to everyone who has stuck with me. All my fashion week posts, and then my sporadic posting this week while I was sick.  Hopefully I can somewhat make it up to you with this installment of Random Roundup. These are all the random outfit selfies that didn't formally make the blog, but usually make it on Instagram for those of you that prefer a real time update. As always, I'm only linking to those pieces that are still available, and hopefully haven't sold out by the time this post goes live! Let's get get on it!

Necklace: Stella and DotBag: Kate Spade | Dress: JCrew Factory | Shoes: Valentino

Oh how I love this dress. You've seen this twice on the blog already. The first time was winterized here, and the second time was worn as a top here. I wanted to simply wear it with bare legs and pumps, so here you go. The weather was cool but still "warm" enough to go bare legged. This dress is such a happy piece. The saturated colors make me fall in love with it over and over.

Top: Express | Skirt: American Eagle | Shoes: Steve Madden

Really not much to say about this outfit. The husband and I were running out for weekend errands. My hair went up, I reached for my foolproof top, easy skirt, and loyal leopard sneaks. Honestly, I may as well be wearing pajamas because this outfit is that easy and required little thought or effort.

Oh look, yet *another* time I am wearing wine color skinnies like I talked about last week. The day I wore this was the day of the blogger awards. I needed a more casual outfit with flat shoes I could wear for work so I could preserve my feet for my heels that night. I just needed a neutral canvas for my face and hair that I could easily supplement and get all gussied up for the evening. I loved how the metallic cap toes of my shoes brought out the shine in my necklace.

And so begins scarf season. I can't help it guys, I'm addicted. And when they drape beautifully like this, it just makes me happy. Anything + a drapey scarf equals an outfit. And because two pairs of destroyed jeans are not enough, I recently bought these from American Eagle. This is my most happiest outfit formula.

Tee: Cardinals store | Jeans: Express Rerock | Shoes: Isabel Marant

October is so stressful for me. Baseball in general is so stressful for me. And yes, I am sad that the Cardinals didn't make the World Series, but I really can't complain about the season they had! I figured I'd post one last Cardinals outfit to officially close out this season. Crazy because it feels like just yesterday I was blogging about the shopping I did in Florida while I was there for Spring Training!!

Necklace: Banana Republic | Top: ExpressSkirt: The Limited | Shoes: Sam Edelman

Last but not least is this "work" outfit. I've said many times before that I can wear anything I want to work - hence the outfits above. But when I know I have to meet with people outside of the office - I do try to wear more of the traditional work pieces - slacks, button ups, and in this case a good old pencil skirt. How adorable is the peplum on this thing? A subtle detail that makes it a little more special, and you know I still need to keep it interesting with my heels.

I feel like it's been awhile since I've done this yet I didn't feel like I had as many outfits as accumulated as usual. Guess it just comes and goes in waves! Have a great weekend! Can't wait to get back to normalcy next week!

    1. What a difference a week makes! First head cold, then migraine, now, well girl stuff. I can't wait to be pain free, but I guess what I'm going through now is the least of all evils?! I think?
      And glad you like these. I do like seeing them all together as well. It's helpful for me!

  12. I love the Cardinals outfit as well! Say...are wedge sneakers still in for 2015??? Just wondering because I still love my wedge sneakers.

    1. I don't plan to retire these ever. I bought them before wedge sneakers became a thing, so I was prepared to wear them with or without the public fanfare! If you love them, flaunt them!
