.bordeaux & moto.

yay! back to the bordeaux / burgundy colors for fall! this night was so stinkin' windy out and the sun was setting, but I really love the mood and vibe of these images. not everything needs to be perfect to be beautiful or worthwhile - that's a lesson I'm being taught everyday. it's hard to see my tee, but it says "hashtag blessed" and I truly do feel so #blessed. I see God's hand in my life and I know we are all given in this life the things we can handle. God doesn't give us challenges and opportunities that He doesn't already know we can face. my family has been going through some changes and we've been getting through it, and it's truly amazing how we have seen God through it all. 

my look today is simple. black, bordeaux and a bit of moto ;) I don't wear my faux leather jackets too often, partially because I don't feel like I'm edgy enough to truly pull them off - and then other times (like in this case) I wonder why I don't wear it more often?! I mostly wear black at work so I rarely want to wear black on my days off - but these colors were meant for each other! I love the tough, sassy vibe that is this outfit. 

even the girliest of girls can have a little fun switching up their looks too ;) 

my friend Lisa has talked with me about my style before, she wants me to reach out of my comfort zone more often, and go for these edgy looks. I'm so glad I have friends that challenge me and stretch me :) I mean, it's clothing. it's not like I'm changing who I am and it's not the biggest deal ever - but I do appreciate it. It's fun to get an outside opinion, and the truth is I like all kinds of styles, I feel like each one is a different part of my personality - it all works! :)

.fall haul video.

today's fun post is my fall haul :) with a very special guest, my daughter Navi! she is so funny lately, always wanting to be by my side and being my 'helper'. I totally love it though. I hope she always thinks I'm cool ;) I went a little crazy lately buying new things for fall but I'm so excited because most everything is a basic that can mix and match with everything in my wardrobe :) I love finding updated basics that can transition through any season and any style. what's your favorite thing about fall???? 

thanks for watching!

hey hey hey ... what'do ya know?! I'm in a 90's inspired look again. and I'm not even mad about it. ;) 
I wasn't joking. I LOVE it. I love that I can basically wear what I wore when I was 7. except now I wear lipstick. but black leggings, tunic tees and denim jackets (also here) sound about right. 

if you've seen my instagram then you probably know that I've become a Lipsense distributor (you can find my pages here and here @stripesandlipstick) :) I LOVE Lipsense - it's basically a long wearing moisturizing liquid lipstick. the color I'm wearing in the pictures is "bella" which is a limited edition - that sold out! but they're bringing it back! so we'll see if I can get my hands on more of this goodness! it's a beautiful 90's lip ;) and I'm praying they release it in the permanent line. 

you should all know by now that I'm a sucker for the little details, and the cut outs on these booties are just perfection! too bad I can't wear them once it's snowing outside! ;) gotta get my use now! so you'll be seeing them a bunch. fair warning. and they come in tan and black. so there's that. 

I'm becoming a one trick pony with my denim jacket and my olive striped tee but if I could tell you 1 thing - it'd be to get either this jacket or this tee (or if you can get both!) I swear they are so comfortable, yet I feel like they can go with anything and everything in my wardrobe. my one regret is not getting more colors of this tee! it's already selling out fast! 

these leggings are a dream. they have no buttons / zippers / etc. they're just comfy. I love that they look so tough and fun but really I feel like I'm in sweats. maybe that's not a good thing ;) because now I want them in EVERY color. I bought the burgundy ones too - couldn't help myself! haha.

I hope you're not sick of my casual 90's type of outfits yet ;) I feel like when a trend comes and it sticks, it's because people love it. I sure love it. and as much as I LOVE getting dressed up and being all feminine, in dresses, pink and florals - it's just as fun to wear an outfit like this. I secretly think my husband likes these types of looks better than the girly ones ;) but that's just between us. 

have a fun day! thanks for reading!
