Anyway, back to business: Since my sis was in town, we spent all day Saturday out and about around town, and ended up spending a good bit of time in the Bishop Arts District. You know what happens to be in the B-A-D? Tons of boutique shops. I bet you already know where I'm going with this... Yes, we spent a good chunk of the day shopping.
And I liked it. Cray cray, right?! Nearly as crayzay as me buying less classic, more trendy NON-J Crew clothes.
This day simply had to be documented. And it was documented at 9am on a Monday, thus the glasses and hair up situation (and sidenote: I'm loving being a red head! This color is sticking around for a while!)
Regardless, here's some of the goodies I scored:
The grey "sweater" (I use that term lightly because it's a Dallas-weight sweater, which is basically as light-weight as you can possibly get) was an instant favorite. It was a bit pricey-ier than I'd usually spend on an impulse, trendy buy, but hey... The hubs approved the purchase so it was game on!

Next was this little gem. I LOVE Halloween, so clearly, this belongs on my Christmas tree, too. Add sparkles and this ornament was pretty much made for me. This has nothing to do with being trendy... Just some of the weird stuff I'm into. Keepin' ya guessing with this random post, right?! #whatjusthappened?
Finally, after putting down an infinity scarf, because get real - I rarely get the chance to wear those - I found this. I really liked the rust color. I don't have anything in my closet anywhere close to it, and I really liked the faux-leather details. I mean, I'm wearing faux-leather now?! Whoa. Has anyone checked to see if hell froze over, too?

I'm still mostly into classic looks (cardigans, jeans and t-shirts, simple gold jewelry) but it is fun to have a few trendy pieces to spice up my look this fall and into the winter. I've found that you're either a classics person or a trendy person, and we rarely cross into each others' camps. Although we should far more often, yeah?
Do you tend to gravitate towards classics or trendy?
