Currently Loving All Things Satin

Satin is not a material you would think is great for fall. Materials that come to mind during the cooler months are fleece, leather and flannel. When I received these adorable rich rust colored polkadot mule heels in a satin material I just knew they would be perfect for fall. I pictured wearing them with light blue boyfriend jeans and cream chunk knits or an all black outfit. What I didn’t expect to wear with these satin pumps is a satin (silk) tank. So much satin happening and I love it, I even added a satin(ish) blazer!

Lately, I have become really into satin cami’s, especially the ones with lace detailing. They come in basic black and white colors (check out this one for under $30!) but you can also find emerald, maroon and navy which are all perfect for fall and winter. I would wear these satin silk cami’s more often if they were more nursing friendly. If anyone finds a nursing frienly silk cami please let me know!

I definetly didn’t plan on wearing so much satin in one outfit but sometimes things go together when you least expect them. I got this satin tank last month to go under my yellow satin robe and now I want to wear it under everything! For this outfit, I had my shoes, jeans and tank and needed something eles on top. I tried on a few different style jackets and this satin jacket looked the best.

Steppin’ Into 29 In Stripes

Yes, I am now 29 years old! Which I am totally okay with but knowing this is my last year in my 20’s is pretty hard to believe. I am very happy where I am in my life but one thing I wanted to do at some point (I’ll say before I turn 30 because it sounds right) is run a half marathon. I have no desire to run a full marathon because running for hours just doesn’t seem fun at all but I can handle a half.

With that said, I have signed up for the St. Jude half marathon in December as part of the Bloggin’ Miles for St. Jude!!! I am very nervous for the training to begin but I am excited to do it. I’ll talk more about this as the date comes closer but I’d love for any of you to donate to help me reach my goal, you can click on this link to do so!

I have to admit I sure do feel good when I get dressed up sans Myles. Never could I wear this outfit with Myles, white jeans would no longer be white and this shirt would end up being all twisted and most likely exposing more than it should. These earrings would be pulled and tugged as well. Note- this is not a baby proof outfit.

The Breakdown:
My outfit is from Rowe Boutique located in the Short North in Columbus. It is my favorite place to shop when I’m in Ohio. I know there are a lot of other local boutiques here but I have yet to frequent them. This top is by a designer I’ve never worn, MLM Label and is super cute. I had to wear high wasted jeans and this pair was perfect. Since my shirt was more of a blouse and striped it seemed on the professional side so I added a watch. My statement earrings are currently on sale and under $20 and made this outfit a little more fun without being too loud, I also love these earrings. I would have preferred this look with a more simple shoe, perhaps these which I own or a pump but these strappy ones were all I had with me at the time. We are still unpacking into our new house and I have a lot my nice things are still at our condo. Well, I’m off to get back to Myles and hope he behaves today so I can have a happy and relaxing birthday!
