Fall Basics & Other Important Things

shirt: Forever 21, jeans: James Jeans Twiggy Colada, shoes: Steve Madden (similar), necklace: J. Crew Factory, bracelets: Forever 21

If around game 3 of the ALCS in 2004 (as the Red Sox were losing miserably to the Yankees) you had told me that in the next decade I’d witness three Red Sox world championships, I would have laughed in your face in that way only a 17 year-old can. Last night’s win was met with much less fanfare on my part and more awe. 2004 was just downright shocking to the system. 2007 I was in the city and at Fenway pretty much all. the. time. (How I passed all my courses that semester, I’ll never know!). 2013? A quieter sort of admiration for the little team that could. Scrappy and scruffy all the way. God, I love those Sox.

Terrible segue, commence: This is pretty much a basic fall outfit for me on those days when I prefer not to think too hard about it. I pretty much wore these leopard flats into the ground last year, so I’m trying to preserve their integrity by only wearing them every now and then.

Oh! And before I forget! I don’t know how you all prefer to follow along these days, but I made a little Facebook page for the blog if that is more your speed. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it quite yet. But you can visit here and like it if you so please.

Okay, alsooo: Happy Halloween! May you all be sugar-high by the end of the night!

  2. While I don't follow baseball at all, when my father was spouting nonsense about how this was the first red sox win in 95 years I told him that was ridiculous, they had won in the last decade. No he said, he heard it on the NPR, 95 years.

    I said, "Remember all the news and press and riots and person dying and some players bloody sock and the references on Lost and that whole dumb movie with drew barrymore, that was all because they won before!" 2004 was not that long ago to have completely forgotten! I was so annoyed he didn't believe me.
