Janelle In Real Life: living and learning.


living and learning.

Remember how I told you guys that I couldn't stop wearing this gold arrowhead necklace from Waffles & Honey?


Where she got it: top: modbod // jeans: nordstrom // cardigan: my sister's closet boutique // mocs: forever 21 // necklace: waffles & honey

It's so gorgeous, and I'm dying for a few more of their necklaces for layering (but I'm holding out for Christmas).

Do you guys ever have issues with getting a little clothes shopping crazy? I am legitimately a reformed shopaholic and every once in a while I slip, just like any addict. Last month I exceeded my clothing budget. I excused myself by saying, hey, I just won some giveaway cash so I don't really have to pay attention to how much I'm spending on myself this month! I didn't go craaazy over budget, but it still made me feel really guilty to see how much I'd actually spent. So this month I won't be spending money on myself (unless it's a necessary thing). It's the season of giving and I'd rather focus my efforts on others and recover a little from my overspending. I'd rather put extra cash from things like giveaways, or gifts toward something better and more important.
I did, however, buy my son a good portion of his winter clothing wardrobe. Yesterday it snowed ALL DAY and there was about a foot of snow on the ground. It was also ridiculously cold and I realized that my child has NO winter clothes! I had gotten so used to having the weather in the 50's and I just had to dress him in a long sleeved shirt and a light jacket. So Carson and I are pretty much home bound until the weather clears up a little or his new clothes come in the mail. Am I the most horrible mom ever for not being prepared for this?! Oh well, you live and you learn, right?

    I am hoping for one for Christmas :)
    And your hair is so pretty!

  3. I recently purchased a similar cardigan. I love how you wore yours with a White Tee, Gold Pendant & Jeans. So simple and Chic. Hope you and your family enjoyed Thanksgiving, Janelle. =)

    Stop by to see how I am wearing my Fox Sweater, today.

  4. I wish I could go to your sister's closet boutique- love that sweater! ;)


  5. I love this whole look - so cute and cozy! Definitely making me want to pull my moccasins back out!
