Outfit: Red & Renaissance

I haven’t done in outfit post in over a month, but I’m so happy with how these photos came out! Stan and I were able to capture that elusive “magic hour” yesterday. The sun beaming through the trees makes my new red hair look like it’s on fire. I love it!

I can’t believe I haven’t shown off this sweater before — it’s one of my favorites. It’s cozy and soft and I love the shape. I call it my “Renaissance cardigan” because the way the sleeves fall remind me of that era. Plus, the tag says “Guinevere” (which I think may be an Anthropologie line.) I bought it a few years ago at Teenage Wasteland, a consignment shop in Simsbury, CT.

Oh, and my hair! I think I’ve finally found the color it was always meant to be. Last week, Suzi helped me dye it using Henna Color Lab’s Wine Red Henna Hair Dye. I’ve wanted to try out henna for a few years because there are so many horrific chemicals in regular hair dye and I really love my hair when it’s red. Last year I tried out Manic Panic, which is less chemical-ly, but it faded really quickly. So I took the plunge, did lots of research, and went with Henna Color Lab. I am SO HAPPY! I’ll go into more detail in a few weeks. I want to keep track of how the color holds up.

I’m also glad I get to break these babies out. I bought them at the tail end of boot season earlier this year, so they hardly got any use. They’re very comfortable, and I really like the button detail.

10 American Made Jeans Under $100

10 American Made Jeans Under 100 via @poorandpretty

Now that I’m 27 and can no longer fit into the jeans I wore in high school (hello, hips!), I’ve been on a mission to fill my wardrobe with American-made jeans. I absolutely want my dollars to count toward ethically-sourced cotton and fair-wage practices, but I’m not going to pay couture pricing. Some companies really jack up their prices unnecessarily. After a little bit of hunting, I found 10 pairs of jeans made in the USA priced under $100.

Cozy Fall Favorites

cozy fall faves via @poorandpretty

Happy Fall! The weather has been getting a bit chillier up here in the northeast. I’m breaking out my scarves, sweaters, and chai tea for the season.

1. On The Plus Side Cardigan via ModCloth. How cozy does this cardi look? I need it!

2. Eden Scarf via FashionABLE. I love FashionABLE’s scarves and their mission to create sustainable businesses in Africa. For that, this fall accessory is a win-win.

3. Skinny Skinny Jeans via Madewell. I just bought a pair of these from Uptown Consignment — brand new! — for $18. They are the most comfortable jeans I have ever owned. They will be well worn this season.

4. Madden Girl Elsiee boots via Zappos. I love cognac-colored boots. If I didn’t just buy a pair earlier this year, these would be all mine.

5. Chai Tea via Simpson & Vail. As soon as it starts falling below 60 degrees in the morning, I make my own chai tea lattes before work with Simpson & Vale’s chai tea mix, soy milk, and a little bit of agave nectar. (I’ve also made an iced version.)

6. Super Chunky Merino Wool Blanket via Colorways Gallery on Etsy. I just want to burrito-wrap myself in this blanket and never come out.

Outfit: Chevron Blues & Stitch Fix

Blue Chevron Outfit via @poorandpretty

A few months ago I signed up for the personal styling service, Stitch Fix, and I am in love! Every month, they send me five articles of clothing or accessories based on my taste, budget, and lifestyle. Both the tank top and the skinny jeans from this outfit were in one of my “fixes.”

Just as with my For the Makers subscription, I love getting a box delivered to me every month with surprises inside. The stylists at Stitch Fix do their best to match me with quality pieces based on my Style Profile, a short survey about my fashion likes and dislikes, sizing information, etc. They encourage you to link to a Pinterest board that showcases your style to help them better match your Fixes with your personality. After you fill out your Style Profile, it may take a few weeks to get your first Fix to you, but when you receive it you have three days to try on everything and send back (in a pre-paid shipping bag) whatever you don’t like. If you keep everything, you get a 25% discount off of your entire order. If you send back everything, you only pay a $20 styling fee.

I’ve received only a few things I wouldn’t wear. Most of the time, I keep everything in my Fix unless it doesn’t fit. I especially love when they send me something I wouldn’t necessarily have picked out for myself and I end up really liking it. It really is like having your own personal stylist! You can change your frequency to receive them once a month, every 2-3 weeks, or once every two months. Wanna learn more or sign up? Do it.

Side note: you know how my hair is getting really long and I’m finding myself lazily pulling it back into crazy things like “bear ears“? I’m also all about the messy bun.
