31 x 31

It's always good to challenge yourselves, right? My sister came into town recently and she made a comment about how I'd been playing it safe with outfits lately. And she's right, I have. Most days I go to work without even wearing earrings. The fuck!? I'm not one to play outside the box when it comes to what I wear, I just learn how to play within the box. So, to re-set my mojo on my clothing, I've decided to play the capsule game that a lot of my favorite bloggers have done either in the past or present, two favorites being this fantastic  New Yorker & this gorgeous little mama. The idea here is that you choose a set amount of clothes, and only wear those clothes for the length of time you choose. I will be doing 31 for 31 days in October. It just so happens this is my favorite time of year to dress, and I think this will just be marvelous. Opinions may change by the 16th day, but that's why it's a challenge.

*Disclaimer, not everything is pictured.. Because, well laziness. I took the pictures while home sick, and the items not pictured were in my car - meaning I'd have to take a trip, to my car, outside of my warm bedroom. Hence, laziness.

So there is my round up. Dare I say it, finding 31 items was almost tough. I'm sure there are items I have missed and will be kicking myself for, but hey, live and learn. I'll be posting all of the outfits up here, as to avoid inundating my non-fashion loving instagram followers (ie, my boyfriend, his friends, my brother, and the other straggler male friends) with everyday posts of "look at the combo I used today!" But too bad for them, some of them will make it there. If you want to follow along, it's @breezylutz.

Taking Stock.

I don't know about you but for me, Fall has always symbolized new beginnings. It is without a doubt my favorite season, because it is coming off the crazy busy blur that is always summer, and everything is a little cozier, relaxed, and romantic. You can spend days hiking in the sunshine, to come home and snuggle on the couch with a book, some tea or a special person. The crispness in the air and the realization that we'll all be effing freezing soon just always motivates me to clean my house top to bottom, and reflect on where life has taken me in the last 365. 

unnamed Making: muffins, and by repeated request, banana bread for the boy. 
Cooking: warm your soul up soups. these kinds are tomato based, fyi. 
Drinking: 1/2 sweet non-fat pumpkin spice lattes; because fuck it, they're delicious. 
Reading: Harry Potter... And no, I am not ashamed. 
Wanting: The weather to find comfort at 14-16 degrees Celsius, and stay there for a good long while. 
Looking: At old photos and sincerely missing my blonde locks. 
Wasting: the weekends away cuddling. funny how it doesn't feel like a waste when you do that, though. 
Wishing: January 1st would come faster so I can have the most handsome person sharing my space with me. 
Waiting: for January 1st, rather impatiently. 
Enjoying: how unbelievable it is what finds you when you stop looking, and how what found you is what you had been looking for, wanting & needing your whole entire life.   
Liking: the direction life is taking me.
Wondering: If my life has come this far in a year, what is next Fall going to look like? 
Loving: sunsets.   
Hoping: that this season, I actually start to enjoy jogging. not just pretend I do once.
Marveling: At the goals I set myself for love & life this time last year that have come true, almost like serendipity. 
Needing: more storage. and then a little bit more storage  
Smelling: vanilla, cinnamon & coffee scentsy. is that a scent they sell? no, that's a "I'm too impatient for this one to melt fully, so i'll just combine all three and hope for the best". results were very pleasurable.  
Wearing: the dolce & gabbana "pour femme" rollerball I got at Ulta last year, only to be forgotten about and loved one year later.
Following: instagram accounts of french bulldogs, and british fashionistas. inspiration and future fur babies.   
Noticing: how much I love this sleepy little town more and more as I get older.  
Knowing: I really shouldn't read the spoilers for homeland, but I reeeally want to.  
Thinking: about all of my smartest ideas, right before I fall asleep.   
Feeling: unbelievably loved. 
Bookmarking: crockpot recipes for the coming winter. I will be domestic!! 
Opening:  treasure boxes from high school since my parents are moving, and letting nostalgia crash over me like waves. 
Giggling: all the time. I never knew myself to be so giggly.
Feeling: amazingly, peacefully, content. unnamed (1)
