OOTD Roundup, Vol. 9

We have a lot to cover today, so I won't waste time with a witty, compelling intro. You're welcome/I'm sorry.

TRAVEL CHIC AF

Yeah, I did it. I took a typical "travel chic" photo for the 'gram. But can you blame me? I was heading to Chicago and able to don not only the best cardigan, but also A JACKET. So employing Ellen to snap this pic wasn't a debate. 

There's something magical about this cardigan, y'all. Any time I post it, people go ape shit for it. It pains me that Nordstrom didn't bring it back once it sold out during the Anniversary Sale this year. But I found a SUPER SIMILAR one to make up for their mistake. Overall, this look was super comfortable and seamlessly transitioned from sitting-at-the-airport-eating-chips-and-drinking-a-beer to sitting-at-a-bar-in-Chicago-and-eating fries-and-drinking-a-beer.

COZY IN CHITOWN

I bought this coat from Abercrombie (yes, that Abercrombie) last year and am so glad they brought it back this year 'cause it's that good. Plus PLUS, it's on sale which is tight. IDK why the reviews about it are so poor. I have nothing but great things to say about this cute ass peacoat. It's cozy, it's tastefully oversized and it's grey, white, and a little black. In other words, it's perfect.

TIERS FOR FEARS

This sweater is yet another restocking miss by Nordstrom. COME ON, GUYS. WHAT GIVES? I also grabbed this during the Anniversary Sale and have literally been waiting since July to wear it. That day came last week, and it was everything I hoped for and more. NO FEAR THO because I found a SUPER similar (and way cheaper) option by Forever21. I don't typically describe my clothing as "fun," but this cardigan is very fun to wear.

PUMPKIN PORCH POSIN'

There's A LOT going on in this outfit. I absolutely love these long-sleeve, flutter-sleeve tees from GAP. The little ruffles at the wrist look so cute under cardigans and jackets and add a little feminine UMPH! The cardigan is from Target (shocking), comes in several colors, and is a wonderfully affordable option compared to its $100+ cousins all over town. And the heels — oh, the heels. I am not a heels girl, so I welcome the block persuasion with open arms and these do not disappoint. They're also from GAP (who, like always, is having a great sale right now) and everything I'm wearing is TTS (that's True To Size, FYI).

WINTER UNIFORM ON LOCK

Not sure if you guys have picked up on this yet, but GAP makes up about 85% of my closet. They make good quality stuff, it's ALWAYS on sale, and it fits so I go with what I know. This hoodie is a part of their softspun line (which I'm almost positive is 50% angel feathers) and just the tits. Such a clutch throw-on for around the house or to run errands or go to the gym or to wear work. And these adorable #onbrand sweat-joggers are as comfortable as they look. When I saw GAP had named the color "Milkshake Pink," I was like ADD 👏 TO 👏 CART 👏

the CARDI strikes again

From the day I purchased this cardigan, my promise to myself was to overwear the shit out of it. So far, so good. What sucks about this entire look is the dress and damn cardigan are sold out. Sigh. But, per usual, I've linked some similar stuff. The point is — more long cardigans over midi dresses. That's the point.

PUT A BANDANA ON IT

Once in a while, a bandana will come along that changes the game. This is that bandana. $12.50. Pre-washed so it's not stiff and rigid. And the perfect, traditional red bandana color. It's a new purchase from Madewell, and I love it very hard. Also, this dress is still $46 and still available in NINE colors and still the perfect casual throw-on. It was warm the day I wore this look but, in cooler temps, SUPER cute with a jean jacket or cardigan added to the mix.

WHEW. That's all for this week. I am exhausted; are you? Until we meet again...
