Happy October! Does anyone else feel like September went by with a blink of an eye?
You might have already noticed I have had to cut back on my regular blogging schedule – temporarily – until we make the move up north and settle in. It may sound silly, but getting back to sharing my daily eats, workouts and shenanigans is something I am looking forward to the most in our new adventure in Michigan.
Today I am highlighting a few stand out pieces from my wardrobe in September. Considering our move is less than two weeks away, I have a feeling this will be my last post involving sundresses for the year… Oh boy.
It goes without saying that there are a lot of outfits that go by unblogged, but my goal is to stop in and document a few notable pieces at least once a month.
You will also notice I am a bit of a bargain shopper. I appreciate high fashion and expensive designer clothing, but prefer to highlight pieces that everyday shoppers on a budget (like myself) can afford.
Night Out With Friends
My first outfit is perfect for a dinner date. I felt extremely comfortable in the loose material, and felt just dressed up enough to meet a few friends at the outside patio of a local, trendy restaurant.
Dress: Urban Outfitters – sale rack
With a busy pattern and bright colored shoes, I kept accessories to a minimum of wedding rings and tiny diamond earrings.
Saturday Night Service
I had been dying to wear this beige blouse with navy blue bows ever since it was delivered to my doorstep back in July!
Although I would have loved to exchange the flats for a pair of nude pumps, I felt the ones pictured were the better fit for a casual church service.
The blouse is extremely thin, so I layered a plain white spaghetti strapped tank under it to conceal the goods.

Skinny Jeans: Forever 21
Flats: BCBG, via Marshall’s

Dress For Success Event
You might recognize this little red number from the recent Dress For Success Stiletto Strut event I wrote about.
I have had this dress in my closet for (try not to laugh) about five years now, and it was purchased from Express, on the sale rack no less. While cleaning out my wardrobe, I wanted to give this dress one more go before giving it away. I simply adore the cutout in the back.
Wouldn’t you know, by the end of the evening I received at least five compliments on my dress. Not only that, but one of the strutters in the contest was wearing the exact same dress. Same color, same cutout, same sale from Express five years ago. Crazy!
I guess it is worth keeping around after all. 😉
Moving into October and up to a dramatically cooler climate, I am looking forward to completely revamping my wardrobe and it is going to start with a trip to the outlets in Orlando as soon as I get some free time.
Winter coats, scarves, boots, and other layering pieces… here I come!
