It may have taken two and a half months, but I think this is the first week I felt truly settled after starting my big girl job in June. I finally got back to my blogging schedule, I cooked real dinners like a functioning adult, and I just had much more motivation to do things after getting home from the office, instead of lazily lying about like I had been doing most nights.

I had forgotten the whole point of the collaboration… I shifted gears and decided to embrace a much cozier option inspired by a recent vacation of my own—the mountain getaway I took to Breckenridge a few weekends ago! Yes, it might not be as romantic as some of the European-inspired outfits I was imagining, but the girls I saw in Breck were sporting some very cute sweaters and booties, making me very excited for fall. It was the perfect excuse to break out my secondhand camo buttondown!  Continue reading “Travel-Inspired with The Thrifty Six”
