Creepin' It Real: 2015 T-Shirt Edition.

I mean, I had to get this t-shirt right? I have evidence that I've been using the phrase 'creeping it real' for at least a year, so when a friend tagged me on instagram that they had a shirt emblazoned with it at Target I handed over my $12 almost without thinking (almost, because not one Target in my area had the thing, so I had to order it online and then wait patiently not only for it to ship but for the weather to get sufficiently creepy. I'll wear it in all seasons, but for the first time I wanted it to be gloomy and moody).

Shirt: Target, Skirt: J. Crew/current season, Jacket: J. Crew circa 2009, Shoes: J. Crew Factory Holiday 2014, Bag: J. Crew/current season

In hindsight I wish I had tucked it into my tights, because I hate that line it makes visible under the skirt-waist, but then there's the conundrum of the tight's waist popping up above the skirt because I buy them large enough to almost wear them as strapless one-sies. Eventually it'll get so cold that I won't care, and everything will tucked into the top of my tights and pant legs will be jammed into socks to create one seamless outfit that no breath of cold air can penetrate.

Not totally necessary yet. It's still jacket weather around here, I've pulled out the stockpile of thrifted sweaters put away throughout the summer and I'm not sick of them yet--I've forgotten about winter--and October is flying by like it always does.

I had plans to do a bit of writing about blogging in general, I've slowed down so much on it, and the general attitude seems to have shifted so much in the last few years. I don't particularly want to stop, but I feel pretty out of step in a lot of ways with what's going on now--my interest in sponsored posts is pretty low, I kind of just want to do my own little thing (whatever that is). I'm cleaning house quietly around here, taking up domain names, working on streamlining and making things prettier. It's all a post for another day--for now it's Wednesday, and there is pasta to eat.

  1. I love your outfit! Everything goes so well together. And the leaves make the background perfect for this outfit.

    I think even if you don't have an interest in sponsored posts you can still do your own thing and post whatever you like. But I'm not a blogging expert, so. :P

  2. Would love to hear your thoughts about blogging, too. I think I've been having some of these same thoughts...about where blogging is going, how things are shifting. Not really wanting to stop blogging because I genuinely enjoy the writing, but not necessarily wanting to follow suit with other blogs just to be "successful" you know? My blogging has slowed down a lot, too. I say do your own thing. Blogging is going to keep shifting and maybe it will even get back to where it started. Anyhoo,I really like your blog, so I'll be reading (all the way from Hong Kong).

  3. I have been reading blogs for several years now and I definitely think that the atmosphere has changed quite a bit. Everything is becoming so professional but also somewhat commercialized. Sometimes I like that, because it feels like flipping through a magazine, other times I find that the authenticity of it all becomes rather questionable. The relatableness was what drew me to blogs in the first place. So, yes, I'd love to hear your opinion on it!
