OUTFIT OF THE DAY: Back to School with Mr. Mouse

number1

Fall has finally arrived. With the turn of August to September came Pumpkin Spice lattes, cool breezy weather, and the anticipation of starting another school year. While I love warm weather, and summers by the lake, I always look to forward autumn with its mystery hanging in the brisk air and also, let’s be real here, wooly socks and oversized jumpers.

Call me old fashioned, but I’m actually looking forward to girls covering up with the onset autumn fashion. Maybe it’s just me, but I prefer not to see stomachs hanging out of  crop tops bras, and butt cheeks peeking down out the bottom of shorts denim underpants.

In the last few weeks of summer I purchased a number of fall items, and I’m feeling pleased with the state of my closet for this season. My excitement is so real, that I find reasons to leave the house just for the sole purpose of wearing my new outfits around town (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this).

Confessions of a Stripe-aholic

Do you ever look in your closet and realize that your wardrobe is slowly starting to all look the same? Or when you’re at the shops you always reach for the same colour or pattern?

Hi, my name is Becca and I am a stripe addict.

The moment I figured this all out was when I was away at a weekend event with my sister, and we both arrived at the breakfast table wearing matching striped outfits. Embarrassingly enough, she ended up being the one to change, because when I searched through my bag for a different top, I found that all three outfits I’d packed were stripes.

I clearly remember a conversation I had in my mid teens when I firmly stated “I don’t like patterns, I only wear solids.”. This statement from my 16 year old self seems utterly absurd to my current self. Since then I have come to the realization that I have a serious love-hate relationship with stripes. It’s not like I go to the shops thinking that I’m going to buy something striped, in fact I do quite the opposite. I tell myself that I’m absolutely NOT allowed to purchase another striped garment. And then what happens? I come home with 3 striped pieces! I just can’t kick it. But do I really want to?

What’s your fashion obsession?
