what I wore : on the tracks

Monday, November 24, 2014

details 
jacket - Vegan Leather Moto Jacket c/o Golden Tote
sweater - c/o Golden Tote
necklace - Hannah Zakari (a few years back)
 jeans - TJ Maxx
camera bag - Lowepro

This feels like a very grown up outfit for me. There's nothing really outrageous, other than my hair. For the most part, this is a pretty chill outfit and surprisingly enough I'm really into it. This sweater is definitely something I would pass right by in the store, never giving it a second look but I actually really love it. It was one of my surprise items in this month's Golden Tote (more info on Golden Tote here!) As soon as I put it on I was smitten. It just fits really well, is cozy and looks great. I have a feeling it will be in heavy rotation this winter. It's so great to find items that are simple, and easy to just throw on with anything without much thought. I'd like to fill my closet with those pieces.

I've been poking around the tracks a lot lately. I didn't grow up around train tracks. I actually can't think of any anywhere near my parent's house but I always wished there were some close. I like that it's a little escape from the city to be near the tracks. It's quiet except for when there is actually a train, there's usually no one else around, and on top of that, they're a nice place to take pictures. I certainly wouldn't mind living a bit closer.

PS. Ya like that rock by my foot that I used as a marker for the spot that was in focus? Definitely meant to kick it out of frame. Hah!

  1. How do you like the Palladium boots? I saw a pair recently and they looked comfy.

    I don't know how to put this without just sounding like a condescending jackass. That probably means I should say nothing, haha. I hope you will consider not shooting on train tracks in the future.

    1. I LOVE them! Basically all I wear anymore. I've got five pairs. Heh.

      Nah, you don't sound like a condescending jackass, just someone who is concerned which I can appreciate.

      (That really sounds so cheesy and definitely something I say all the time but seriously!)

    1. Sure is! It's even a locket, errr, kind of a locket? It's opens up so you can keep reeeeeally tiny things inside.

  8. I love the sleeves on that sweater! I live close to train tracks and I love it. I love hearing the train whistle in the middle of the night!

  9. I live 3 blocks from the train tracks. It can be loud. On the other hand, the mournful sound the train whistle sometimes makes is kinda romantic :)

    1. I completely forgot that I lived one street over from the tracks at my last house. I guess just because those weren't tracks I played on, just ones that were in a super busy part of town. It was funny how fast I got used to the sound.

  10. There's just something about having basics in your closet. On the rack, they seem so boring, but when you're putting an outfit together, they can be lifesavers! I love this sweater, and it's by no means boring! One of my favorite outfits of yours, it's just perfectly cozy, hip, and -- most importantly -- flattering!! Lovely.

  11. I always love your outfits! I really like your necklace, it's adorable. I was just wondering if you could make a post about how you organize your clothes and jewelry. Unless that's too personal haha. I just need some inspiration for my closet.

      Hmm, what exactly would you like to see? I've shared photos of my jewelry here before:

      But it's not exactly organized.

      I'll gladly share more info, and photos just not really sure my closet organizational skills are tops. :P

    1. I know, I cannot get enough of this jacket. It's one of those things I put on and immediately feel like a bad ass in.
