Hiiii. How's everyone doing out there? Had a fun Halloweekend? And a great start to November? I've had a very busy couple weeks at work, which always results in a very chill outside of work lifestyle, with no laptops, and no blogging. Then this weekend my friend Rachel came to stay (more about that, later!) Hope y'all are doing ok. 

These pants! They were somewhat of an impulse buy, but I had faith in them because they fall into my Wardrobe Essentials list (trousers, or pants that aren't jeans.) I also owned two pairs of trousers from Old Navy already that I wear constantly (tuxedo / emerald.) The fit of these is slightly different and less fitted, and the print definitely on the wild side! They quickly landed on my Fall Un-Capsule list so, who says impulse buys are always a bad thing?

These shoes! Lace-up flats are undeniably the shoe of the season, and I resisted them for a while because I just didn't think they were my style? I picked this pair up at Target after sticking them on my Fall wishlist, and though they add about five minutes on to getting dressed, I'm really digging them! They add some real visual interest to what would otherwise be black flats. One bit of uncertainty- am I tying these right? How do you guys tie your lace-up flats?

In retro (which is what this blog is partially about) though I love this color palette, the combination of billow-y half-tuck and straight leg trousers is looking a little frumpy to me. I'd like to re-do this outfit with a more fitted blouse (or a full tuck!) I think with the right proportions I'd be 100% on board.

Ok, hope your week is off to a lovely start. Be back soon!
