A few months back, I ordered Alala’s sophisticate jacket because the draped look and neoprene fabric had my name written all over it. It fit looser in the body than I expected, so I reluctantly sent it back. After that, I found myself second guessing the return. I looked back at the pics I had taken for the blog, which only confirmed my desire to re-buy. Luckily, I was able to snag it on sale at the beginning of the summer before it disappeared for the warmer months. I’m so glad I re-bought it because I’ve worn it about 3498 times since. It’s warmer than most of my knit cardigans, so for a cold-natured person like me it’s the perfect weight for over-air-conditioned restaurants, offices, or just chilly evenings outside. This re-purchase was definitely a success.
On that note, September is here and temperatures are already wavering. The nights are getting cooler and the 80-degree mark has already nearly disappeared from the weather forecasts. As much as I love my speed shorts, I’m looking forward to mixing my crops and pants into the rotation. And besides that, I’m also excited to freshen up the cool-weather side of my wardrobe with some new purchases. I’ve already gotten started picking up a few things from new brands, so look for reviews coming soon to the blog!
