what I wore : cozy at home

the dainty squid home, green hair alice & olivia glasses, pink cateye glasses, the dainty squid, kaylah doolan, green hair

glasses – Ludlow c/o Alice & Olivia
romper – button-down shirt romper via Urban Outfitters
cardigan – Macy’s
socks – thigh high socks via Amazon
slippers – Marshalls (similar)

I’m not going to lie, this post feels a bit more like a string of selfies than an outfit post. Also, I’ll probably end up doing an actual outfit post in this same thing another day but y’all I’m living for this romper and don’t want to wait. Also, new glasses & the coooooziest blanket ever need shown off too.

The weather has finally cooled down in Ohio. I’ve been nesting like crazy. This is my favorite time of the year. I love a clean house with a fall scented candle burning and cool breeze blowing in. Being under a cozy blanket with a mug of coffee. It’s my ultimate happy place. Each year the same feeling strike. It’s the high before the winter blues inevitably come. I wish autumn could last forever.

I prefer to take my outfit photos outside for a multitude of reasons but also always wish I had more photos of me in my home. I’m so proud of this apartment. I really love this place, and I love how I’ve decorated it. Photos of me in my home, in my element, feel so personal. These aren’t the best photos technically. The lighting is driving me bonkers, I’ve edited and re-edited about five times now but I love them so much. My plants, my pets, my collections. These are a few of my favorite things. Also, how could I not post those ridiculous photots of Professor?

Hope you’re having a great day.

  • I think you’re the only person who would be critical of the lighting of these pictures! Love this outfit [socks and slipper game = strong] and how cozy it all looks. I also love the decor – I only have a tiny apartment so I’m trying to work out how to get more plants in without it feeling cluttered and I love the dedicated table for one big plant. That’s what I need!! Stealing! 😛

  • In the sixth picture with you and Professor, I love that little green spot on his tail!! I’m guessing that’s from your rainbow makers… absolutely adorable. Also, your lighting looks amazing.
