This may be my favorite shoot of all time ever for several reasons. Firstly, Dani of Blonde in the District is a joy to work with and a total sweetie. She actually organized the brunch for a little group of us at Ambar– there were new bloggers and experienced bloggers and in betweens, like me. No judgment of anything that anyone was doing, just advice and problems we’ve all had and a great feeling of girl-power. I actually got some amazing advice from Alison of Wardrobe Oxygen. I’m going to paraphrase here but when I told her that recently I’d felt discouraged and even considered saying goodbye to LBC1, she told me to not give up on my blog, but since it’s mine all mine, mold it to be exactly what I want it to be. There is no right or wrong here.

Secondly, Dani picked this amazing spot for our shoot. The Fridge is a cool gallery down by Eastern Market, and apparently their mural outside changes all the time. I can’t wait to go back.

Thirdly, I was kinda diggin’ my outfit. It was actually decently warm on Saturday, and I was so happy to be without the bulky coat.I’ve been doing so much business casual on my blog that it was fun to break away from that. I’m also obsessed with my little milk purse. For whatever reason, I’ve wanted a milk carton purse for like a year. Kate Spade had one, Betsey Johnson had one, SkinnyDip London had one… and I wanted one, but didn’t want to spend a ton on a novelty bag. Hi Amazon.com for under $10 🙂



ok- so this is technically an outtake- but this may be my favorite

I remember my first trip to Old Navy. There was a little group of us that all wanted matching outfits for our sign language club performance- I was in 5th grade. The moms had put the kabash on the original plan of Limited Too because it was “Too” expensive. See what I did there? We ended up with banana yellow and tangerine orange shorts with matching t shirts… and visors. It was all very late 90s/ early 2000s.

Flash forward what seems like a zillion years and Old Navy has stepped up its game infinitely but kept the price point at a mom (or budgeting young adult) approved level!  And right now there’s a 40% off sale so splurging isn’t even really a splurge- I even started my Christmas shopping! Check out some of my favorite pieces. I had a really hard time narrowing down my list, especially because I love fall clothes more than any other season. What are your favorite Old Navy fall looks?
