Velvet Shorties

You guys… I am SO on board with the velvet trend! I got these shorts thinking they’d be the perfect fall staple in Florida! I was right about that, until three days ago when it went from 75 and sunny (like it’s been for the whole entire season) to 45 and windy/cloudy/rainy! Brr. I get cold just thinking about it… FL has ruined my cold tolerance. But I wore them yesterday anyway because they’re SO freaking COMFY. I’m a HUGE fan of clothes that feel like pj’s but make you look put together 🙂

I got these shorts at my favorite 30A boutique, Indigo Watercolor! (Also where I work now and I’ve never been happier! If you’re in the 30A area, come see me!) Like I said in my other post, their website isn’t up yet BUT you can find their Instagram HERE! Check us out!

The sweater is from Riffraff a few seasons back, but they have tons of new ones that are just as cozy! And the blanket scarf obsession continues — ILYMIX is where it’s at y’all! Now that it’s cold here, I’ve pretty much been planning my outfits around my ILYMIX scarves haha. They’re so cozy, and they make great Christmas gifts!

Anyone else feel like you’re suddenly running out of time to get all the gifts you need?! I think I have a mini heart attack every other day because I keep thinking of more gifts I need to get! Someone please come do my shopping?! No? Anyways, on a more serious note… I almost didn’t post this post (actually almost deleted the whole thing after I wrote it) because I got on Instagram and scrolled through other people’s feed and felt totally inferior. I let other people’s highlight reel affect my real life. “My photos aren’t as good.” “My legs aren’t as skinny.” “My roots are grown out a little but her hair is so perfect.” Blah blah BLAH! You’re probably familiar with this nonsense. So, if you’re like me and you sometimes let Instagram get in your head, here’s your reminder that it’s simply a filtered highlight reel, not the messy, REAL every day life that people live. So cut yourself some slack, and if you want to post that picture, post it with confidence! Let’s use Instagram as a way to build community not competition, and compliment each other’s strengths rather than focusing on our own weaknesses! 

I hope you guys have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
