Can you tell I'm impatient for fall weather? It was *marginally* cooler this weekend, so I used it as an excuse to wear the blazer I've been dying to share with you guys! I'm obsessed with this color for fall (in search of the perfect skinny jeans in this shade, if anyone can point me in the right direction!) Needless to say, the rest of the day I didn't even touch it because it was still a toasty 75 degrees, and sweaty isn't a good look for me. I might just have to resort to wearing it around the house with the A/C blasting. 'Cause that makes sense.

Also, how awesome are these glitter sneakers? Best $25 of the summer. I'm contemplating getting more colors if H&M has them. They're kind of narrow for my wide feet, but there are some things worth sacrificing for a boatload of sparkly glitter.

  2. I honestly don't dig the glitter sneakers (I'd probably trade those for a pair of wedge sandals or wedge peep-toe pumps), but the rest of the outfit is very nice. The blazer is especially lovely. I also like the blouse. Your hair, face, and smile all remain vintage Allison cuteness. Cool look.

    1. Ha! Me selling the bag is unlikely (just bought it for myself as a 25th birthday gift!), but I think there's a phone number you can call linked above to see if there is stock left! Worth a shot, and I will say that it's definitely worth the money! <3

    1. Aw I bought it online! I guess it's sold out now?? =/ You can probably find it in store still. I'm eyeing the grey/neon, navy/black, and fuschia/white combos online too though! haha But 4 of the same blazer is probably excessive. ;)

      xx!

  23. I'm in love with your blazer and glitter sneaker...you nailed it! I don't think I own a plum blazer and you just made me want one and I may have to consider doing a DIY for glitter sneakers.

  24. I'm so VERY ready for fall, too! That blazer is fab, I dig the glitter sneaks, and I saw two fits of burgundy/plum jeans at SimplyBe last week. Let us know how the Torrid ones work? <3
