Winter Rust

2018 hello!! Ok, honestly, thank GOD. I think we can all agree 2017 was one of those years that really just punched us all in the face. Although, I should admire the great things that did happen; getting accepted into my school, my sister's wedding in the beautiful Dominican Republic, and launching this blog. I want to thank everyone and anyone who has wandered to this website and has read my (rather eccentric) thoughts. Pardon me while I get sappy, but it feels so lovely to be able to write about what I love and to hear from my reader's that they feel the same. I am genuinely so excited for 2018. This year will be filled with amazing opportunities and new experiences, as every year is, I have a good feeling for this year especially. Ok now onto the fashuuuuun. 

This. Puffer. Coat.

I have worn this piece so much that I thought it ought to be featured on the blog, duh! You guys, it was on markdown for $15 at H&M..... Like ok! Thanks! Me at the store: *takes off already owned coat and purse, vigorously throws them on top of the rack, puts on the $15 coat, runs to the closest mirror, says "yep" and fast walks to checkout.* Aaaaand scene. Styling puffer coats off the shoulders slightly gives me life. Thanks to the brand Nansushka for being the one's feeding this trend. It adds complete chicness, then paired with some skinny cat eye sunnies. Luxurious. The sunnies are also new, but they were going to be returned until I heard that Kanye emailed (emailed! Ugh that's so me) Kim and told her, 'only small sunglasses this season.' So that's where we are now.

M.I.A Field Trip

 
1A5E0B01-FDBD-4117-BDD0-700782C2970E.jpg

It's my first official autumn 17' look on the blog let's go!! Ok well I'm writing this in the morning currently so I'll settle down but I'm very excited to share this look. I truly incorporated my favorite new pieces from my closet for this field trip to The Minneapolis Institute of Art (M.I.A).

Embroidery has clearly been something seen around in street style and on the runways and I geeked when I found these boots at a thrift shop in uptown this past summer, called Buffalo Exchange. Ok yes and I swear to God they were only $40 so..... thanks to not only God but Jesus (referring to Justin Bieber's acceptance speech at the 2011 VMA's thank you very much). Another piece I honestly wear at least twice a week are the Adidas trainer pants. Honestly I'm kinda obsessed with them, I don't know what it is. Maybe it's the super cute fit or the fact that I love the sport soccer for various reasons (*wink *wink). I really thought it was a "Kardashian" thing to dress up sweatpants but I tbh dig it and I guess now I can that it wasn't just the Kardashian's I've seen do this. Talking 'bout all the fellow fashion bloggers, bless us we can take the credit. I pulled out my silk cami, that I thought I would say goodbye to until SS18, to tuck in with these pants. I love this cami not only because it's very soft but it's extremely versatile as you can tell.... it can go with sweatpants... Lastly, the massive Topshop coat is free and ready to party. I can always count on this coat for giving me compliments because it's literally, and this is a quote from a fellow friend, "Better than life itself." Bold, yes, but not wrong.

I swear I had to draw this piece in one of my art classes before and I was about to tell my prof. I am no architect (although that would be cool) (I kinda am an architect though because of my 8 hour days of playing The Sims 3).

The piece behind me I like to title it "Waiting for My Man to Get His Butt Home". I think she needs a glass of red wine by her though to truly make it come together.

And then it was actually snowing snowing for the first time when we were leaving and it was so beautiful!! We blasted Justin Bieber's (my second JB reference in this blog post? Weird.) Christmas album in the car on the way back of course.

Let's Get Funky: An Archive

 
025890EC-559F-47F0-8498-59C4B2C4E270.jpg

Welcome back-- both to me and to you! Well... I have been living at Starbucks/the library if that isn't yet clear from my absence. These past few months have been a lot, with school and being a maid of honor to my sister who just got married; I have been occupied. But while we wait for some new, fresh, fall content I thought of doing a #tbt (or #tbs because it's Saturday and I make up my own rules) post. Me and Ava did this shoot back in April at a super 90's chic coffee shop. I say this because that green marble just screams 90's office buildings that would be featured in films like The Parent Trap or Home Alone 2 (when they're in New York). Besides my love for nostalgia, these jeans are next on the list. 

Before you ask yes they're from Zara (I mean if they were thrifted that would make me more cool right?) but just look at the distressing and that layering of the denim. Kinda gives me pom pom vibes, like maybe these jeans should be apart of a cheerleader's uniform. That will be a 2018 plan. And yes, these jeans will be coming back out for fall. I paired the funky jeans with yet another Zara piece (geez). Oh and the lovely Gucci inspired loafers that sadly aren't Gucci. I have been needing these babies for a while and they def mean business but in a posh way, of course... really they just form a great team with the funky pants. Now, while we view the photo's, I'm going to sip on the tea that is behind me in the thumbnail pic.

I told you I'll be sippin' on the tea.

Levi Baby

Oh yes, Levi boyfriend jeans... a true love of mine. Years and years ago I had a major thrifting phase (or addiction? Which one was it, Sades?) where I would head to my local Goodwill every weekend and browse through the racks rather swiftly determined to find unique pieces. That's when the love connection happened. Me and Mr. Levi. Most of the time it's hard finding jeans when thrifting because they're all too many sizes too big. BUT NOT THESE BABY'S.

I love that these jeans are cropped too-- so could def pair them with sock boots for fall. Did I mention that the wicker bag and tassel earrings are also thrifted? Wicker bags were everywhere this summer and I didn't have to spend $70+ for one! A blessing. Oh so versatile, I paired the bf jeans with an open-collar, linen (here she goes again) top from Free People. Those shades are also from FP. Should I just call this post "Thrift Free People"? Sounds kinda illegal tbh. Ok, right... onto the photos that I very much enjoyed editing!

Pilot Episode

 

Wow hello hi, it's Sadie and she finally made a blog where she can talk and EVERYONE HAS TO LISTEN (major third person transition here). My dear photographer/fellow MCA alumini (now very into astrology) (bad joke) friend, Ava, and I visited lake Calhoun together to get some snaps in for my very first blog post! Ahhhh!!!! I had a goal of starting this blog during the early summer, and it's very unlike me to be a procrastinator since, "Momma ain't raise no fool" -Cheetah Girls. But better late than never right?! 

I really have been loving linen this summer, whether it be this casual 'throw on' tank or a button up as a swimsuit coverup. Now that I'm thinking about it, I even bought a linen pillow. Just call me linen girl! When I headed to MOA (aka Mall of America for my non-Minnesota readers) a good month ago and found this tank at Zara I thought it would go perfectly with these striped, bow belt waist shorts also from Zara. I also love stripes a whole lot, so really this outfit wins in every aspect.

I'm very excited to start this blog and I hope you all are as amped as I am!! So, please enjoy these pics of me trying to be super cool and super chill

Shoutout to Ava for letting me use her newest vintage find for this ultimate deets pic, and let's ignore my non-manicured nail(s).
