Sweet Parrish Place Style ( Vol. 1)

Hey all!  Welcome to my Weekly What I Wore Wednesday post!  Only, you might have noticed that I changed the name of the post to Sweet Parrish Place Style.  Same post I do every week- different title.  So let’s get on with the show!  Every week, I take pictures of my outfits and join the WIWW link party with The Pleated Poppy.  These posts are something that I really enjoy, because I have always had a passion for fashion.  I love putting together new outfits, and shopping my own closet to wear things in different ways.  I wear the clothes I own forever, but I usually don’t wear any item in the exact same way more than once or twice.

I wore this outfit on casual Friday, but I also had a work meeting that afternoon, so I was a tad more dressy than I usually am on casual Friday.  I think this outfit looked casual yet still professional.

My Fall Front Stoop

DSCN6077

Hey all!  Last week, our fall mums out front were looking gorgeous, so after work, I busted out the camera to capture them in all of their glory, so that I could share my Fall Front Stoop with you today!  I would say our front stoop d├ęcor this fall is pretty standard- mums and pumpkins.  I didn’t do much on our front stoop for summer because it seems I have a hard time keeping anything alive out here.  We have now spent two summers in this house, and there is no shade at the front, so I have yet to find the perfect flowers that will thrive out here in the heat and sun of the summer.  So I splurged a little more than I usually do on flowers for fall, since I spent practically nothing over the summer.

What I Wore Wednesday- October 15, 2014

Hey all!  Welcome to my Weekly What I Wore Wednesday post!  Every week, I take pictures of my outfits and join the WIWW link party with The Pleated Poppy.  These posts are something that I really enjoy, because I have always had a passion for fashion.  I love putting together new outfits, and shopping my own closet to wear things in different ways.  I wear the clothes I own forever, but I usually don’t wear any item in the exact same way more than once or twice.

This outfit was my favorite of the week.  This is a summer skirt that I paired with a striped shirt, a sweater, and booties for fall.

Trashtastic Tuesday- My Vintage Finds

Vintage Finds Collage

Hey all!  Welcome to Trashtastic Tuesday! This is a little series around here where I show you something that I thrifted, sometimes I make it over, sometimes I don’t.  Or it may be something that I have owned and I am tired of, or no longer like, so I make it over.  But nevertheless, it is usually something that I paid very little money for.  For this edition of Trashtastic Tuesday, I didn’t make anything over, but I wanted to share these two fabulous finds with you.
