I've had a few questions about how/when I take my pics and if I really wear my looks. This is how MY blogging works...I will either wear an outfit wherever I'm going and have whoever I'm with (usually my sister, my husband, or my blogging friends. I don't ask my friends who don't blog lol) take my pictures (literally takes 10 min at most) OR, like this look, I'll wear it out one night and re-wear it for pictures. Obviously you don't get the best image quality at night time and it gets dark so early this time of year, so that's how I gotta make it work! I wore this out to eat the other night then saved it (lol) for when I was meeting my friend, Carolyn for pics. We usually get together a couple times a week, snap a couple outfits each time (while we're guzzling lattes and goofing off the entire time), then we'll grab lunch after :) It's nice to get work done while you're having fun. So yeah, I do wear each and every look because I'm not a millionaire and hate wasting clothes and a good outfit. That's also why my outfits are...how to say...real life outfits? I love love love the editorial looks that you see on some blogs and in magazines, it just isn't practical for my lifestyle. Work with what you've got! When I was working full time I would either shoot my looks after work (in summer time when it stays light longer), or I would 'bulk' shoot and get three looks shot on a Saturday or Sunday. That's also why I was only able to post 3-4 times a week vs. the 5 that I {TRY} to get up now :)

About this jacket...I love a moto jacket (like here, here, & here) and this one is budget friendly & still looks expensive. I always size up when I order from Shein, I am wearing a medium and it fits like a small. I love the ribbed detailing, I actually wanted an identical jacket from Nordstrom a few seasons ago but it sold out too fast, plus it was 5 times the price- for faux leather! So glad I stumbled on this one 🖤
