Hello weekend! I’m off to Marco Island, Florida tomorrow and I am beyond ready for a little vacation. I can’t wait to celebrate my mom’s birthday and enjoy Thanksgiving in the sun. You can always follow along with my adventures on instagram.
I wore this easy shift dress to my friend’s rehearsal dinner this past weekend and the dreaded happened… I snagged my tights in the middle of dinner. Not these tights specifically, but I snagged my tights in the middle of the evening and had a big hole on my shin for a couple hours. I wish I had some great advice for how to deal with this, but sadly I do not. It was entirely too cold to peel them off so I just continued to walk around with confidence… with the dreaded snag. I realize none of this is related to this dress, which is cute and snag free.

I’m not typically drawn towards vests, but I loved this buffalo plaid puffer vest I scored from Gap at 40% off. I thought it would be perfect for those breezy, chilly days.

Hello Friday! I’m off to St. Louis this weekend to see one of my dearest friends get married. I can’t wait. I’ve been anticipating seeing all my college friends all week and I just want to get there! Hopefully this artic weather doesn’t derail travel plans. Anyway, I hope your weekend is lovely!
I recently tried on this sequin skirt and it’s pretty darn awesome. I am contemplating purchasing for upcoming holiday parties. (I tried it on in a small, just in case you’re wondering about sizing). Check out my Pinterest board for more sequin inspired styles.
Continuing on this week’s trend of throwback rap music, does anyone remember Bubba Sparxxx? I don’t think he’s that memorable (sorry Bubba) but whenever I pick out of a pair of booties from my closet, the classic lyrics of “booty, booty, booty, booty, rockin’ everywhere” get stuck in my head. (Please someone chime in here and tell me this happens to you…) Anyway, I pulled out these glittered heel booties the other day and they add a little extra something special to any outfit. I also recently invested in this classic pair to add to my wardrobe for work and weekends. Scroll through below for a few of my favorites…
Guess who’s back, back again… If you guessed this scarf, you are correct. If you guessed “Shady’s back” then bonus points for knowing your early 2000s rap music. Anyway, yes my favorite fall scarf is back in action and it has been the coziest thing to wear this season. Also, this blazer was shoved in the back of my closet, forgotten. I pulled it out this weekend and it felt like I got a brand new blazer even though I purchased it two years ago. Guess who’s back, guess who’s back, guess who’s back… (Ok, enough. I know).
Fri-YAY! For whatever reason this week felt long and I am welcoming the weekend with open arms. So tonight, I’m going to a BYOB painting class. You heard right – bring your own wine and get artsy. I feel like the vino will really bring out my artistic side. Stay tuned on Instagram for the finished product.
A few favorites from around the web…
The Nordstrom Clearance Sale is happening now! My favorite boots are on sale and I highly suggest you pick them up. I got them last fall in black and they have held up beautifully and are very flattering. Go.
I’ve always been a collector of cute scarves, by evidence of the bin full of them in my closet, but I may be going slightly overboard lately. I keep finding cute ones to add to my collection and I love that they can add some interest and dress up something as simple as a t-shirt. Anyone else stocking up on new scarves for the season? Scroll through below for my current favorites…
This little combo has been my go-to lately when I need a cozy fall outfit and light layers. A heart print blouse with a slouchy cardigan? Count me in. I think this is why I love fall fashion the most… You can get away with wearing a sweater that looks like it could have been your grandpa’s and yet you still look pulled together. And yes, things are getting crazy up in here, pairing a heart print blouse and leopard heels. When it works, it just works. You know?
