Fall-ing in Love With Coats

Folks! Here in the windy streets of Chicago, the cold is ‘cozying’ it’s way into our homes and settling right under our skin. Man it’s cold! Plus it’ll get worse before it gets better. Since we have no current power to change the weather to our benefit, we need to dress our skin and bones in protective layers until the weather does us right!

I’ve been fattening my eyes with some window shopping for the fall, and I wanted to share some of my recent findings with you all! There are so many types of coats and jackets, so I hope you find one that will treat you right and keep you warm in this weather!

From the sheep to your body!


Trenches not gutters!

Wrap it up, Anorak!

Fur the love of warmth!

Stay warm my lovelies!!

Thrifting in my Own Closet: So Many Pairs of Black Shoes

Hello my beautiful friends! Today I want to share a little about my apparent obsession with black shoes. I was looking through my closet today and realized that most of my shoes are black. Now, six pairs might not be a lot for most people, but I don’t own many pairs of shoes. I guess they go with most of my clothes, so at least they’re practical.

I am the living embodiment of impulsive shopping. I may have a similar item, or I don’t need it, but if I like, it’s coming home with me. That’s part of the reason I’ve stopped shopping or even looking around online and in stores because I don’t have an income at the moment. Prevention is better than cure! I’m sure someone out there understands the struggle!

I was on the hunt for a pair of Chelsea Boots for a couple months! I even bought a men’s pair from Asos because no where else had it in my size and didn’t expect me to pay with a kidney and half my liver. I found these from Target for only $25. I loved these shoes, but they were so uncomfortable. I had to remove the soles so my feet could fit, but that may the shoe supper thin and it was still a little tight. I was so hard-headed. I wouldn’t give up on it! Plus it looked so amazing with my outfits! Being gawgus hurts, okay …

p.s. In the colder months, jeans become my second skin πŸ™‚Β 

These bad boys came home with me when I started working at Target overnight. (My feet disintegrated after standing, bending and lifting continuously for 8 hours each night so I stopped working there). I bought these at Kohls for $60. They don’t provide a ton of support, but they’re comfortable for exercise and daily use.

These babies are either a year or two years old. I don’t quite remember, but they were cheap and are still comfortable. Simple black sandal with a 1 inch heel for any occasion.

I bought these the same summer I bought the pair above. They were from Payless and were probably on sale. They’re very comfortable. Not much more to say about them.

I got these shoes maybe 4 years ago from Macy’s for $20 ish dollars. They were originally 65 dollars O.o ? Sad thing is, I haven’t worn them!! I bet if I had spent more, they would be on my feet 24/7.

This is the newest addition to this little obsession I have going. They were around $15 from Payless. I love them!!! I’m currently going on interviews and these have been my go-to shoes. So beautiful and easy to walk in, but a pain to get out of when you get home. The cute factor cancels all that though; I still love them.


Do you have any collections happening within your closets? Let me know!

As always, be happy and healthy!!!
