So long September, tomorrow’s October! If you haven’t already unpacked your flannels, sweaters, and boots, now is the time. Well, at least for us here in the Northern U.S. and everywhere else that is blessed with fabulous cool weather and the smell of autumn leaves during this time of year. I hadn’t made a new “Clarisse Original” for myself in a while, and I’m not sure what inspired me to go with a swan for the sweater, but thank you to whatever it was because I’m pretty in love with it.

What I’m Wearing:
Sweater and Collar: Clarisse Originals
Skirt: @agmarket on Instagram
Boots: AG Saige’s Meet

Ruffles and Dots

Ruffles, polka-dots, color, sparkles, and jewelry, what more can a girl ask for in an outfit? I’ve been trying to hold out until spring to wear this sweater, but alas I can take it no more. You may be surprised to hear it is from AG’s Bitty line, but somewhat like USPS’s shipping policy, I like to think if it fits, it’s fair game. In fact, when my eyes were opened to the possibilities in the Bitty line, I was surprised at the number of things I wanted to try on for size.

Sweater: AG Blossom Outfit

Skirt: JanieJumps on ETSY

Creative Thought Matters


Sometimes you have a light blue sweater when you really need a light blue cardigan. This is where my favorite mantra, “Creative Thought Matters,” comes in handy. I learned it from my friends who attended Skidmore College, where the saying is their motto, and there is not a student there who doesn’t know it. So, when I was putting together this outfit and was feeling a little chilly, I used my problem solving skills and took my light blue sweater, put it on backwards, and voila! Insta-cardi! My scarf conveniently covers the exposed velcro and my long hair covers the detailing on the “back,” so aside from the fact that I just publicly exposed myself, who would know? You can thank Skidmore for this cute outfit.

What I’m wearing:
Sweater/Insta-cardi: AG Frosty Party
Tee: JanieJumps on ETSY
Jeans: AG Store Exclusive
Shoes: Vintage
Scarf and Hat: Clarisse Originals
