It is really hard to come up with titles for these blog posts! HAHA. I hope I don’t lose readers just because the post names are super cheesy. Just be aware that I know how embarrassing they are. But, I still do it anyway 😀 How fun is it that we found this train during our photoshoot?! It was just parked there, and I happened to be wearing overalls! I was like, “It’s just waiting for me to be the conductor!!” Haha. This was a funny shoot!
This has been one hell of a rough week over here! I’ve been getting these sickness attacks since July. We’ve worked with my Drs and health advisers for months on the possibilities. I’ve tried so many different things. The pain starts up in my sternum and the radiates through my back and down into my stomach, over by my liver and gallbladder with the worst nausea, pain, and vomitting. Anyway, it got so bad (it’s actually been this bad, I just finally gave in) that I went to the ER on Monday. The CT scan showed a thickness in my stomach at the bottom, so they think it is Gastritis caused by an ulcer or infection such as H. Pylori. Funny, because I treated H. Pylori this summer when we figured that was probably the case. Looks like I must have a nasty case of it. Hopefully it is not an ulcer. I have to go for further testing later. Have any of you struggled with gastritis, H. Pylori, or stomach ulcers? I’d love to hear your experiences!
On the fashion front, I’ve been so obsessed with corduroy lately! I love it! It’s such a great fabric for fall and a new fun texture to add to the wardrobe! I used to have an awesome pair of cords from Abercrombie back in the day. I wish I would have kept them because I would totally rock them again! But, I’ve found a couple new corduroy pieces to share with you!
These overalls by Free People are so comfy and are perfect for running around in the chilly, rainy, fall weather! The color is perfect for fall, too. You can easily pair this with any other neutral color! You could add a cardigan sweater over top when it gets cooler, a moto jacket in leather, suede, or knit, a rain jacket, pretty much anything goes with these bad boys! I wore them on a warmer day, so I chose a ribbed off the shoulder top from Express that comes in a few different colors, and my favorite mules of the moment by Kristin Cavallari. I love these mules! They have gold studs all over them, so they add a little fun to any outfit! I’m also wearing my favorite backpack from Rebecca Minkoff. I use this bag all the time! It’s so versatile and convenient. It feels so casual and cool, yet polished and put together. That’s my jam.
The second corduroy piece I am loving on is this adorable dress from Tularosa! I love Tularosa! They have such fun, vintage inspired, yet modern pieces in their collections. This dress is a perfect example. It has the puffy shoulder trend as well as a dramatic A-Line which makes it super feminine and flirty, too! I love that the zipper in the front allows you to control how low you want the neckline to be. Sometimes I order things and it’s like “WHOA, I can’t possibly walk around in public like this”. Hahaha, no judgement, it just doesn’t look good on me to have my entire chest hanging out, LOL. This dress is so soft and comfortable. I paired it with some over the knee boots for cooler temps, and my favorite new bucket bag from TOPSHOP! How adorable is this bag? I love it because it looks really chic and designer like, but the price is great AND you can fit a lot of stuff in here! It also has a little drawstring at the top, so your stuff inside is safe and secure and not falling out when you bend over (yes, this has happened to me too many times!). Unfortunately, I just saw that this dress is SOLD OUT 🙁 Hopefully they will re-stock it, though! But, never fear! They have one exactly like it that is plaid and super adorable, too. I’ve also linked some others that are very similar.
What is your favorite way to wear corduroy? I’ve linked my these outfits here as well as some of my other favorites I have been eyeing!
