Thanksgiving Morning

Happy Thanksgiving! After a hell of a year, I am especially thankful to be surrounded by the people most important to me for a day of pajamas, football, & of course, a feast...

Ready, Set, Road Trip!!!

Back to the Midwest we go, this time to celebrate Thanksgiving & spend much needed time with family & friends.  I get emails quite often asking what I pack when we go away, which is mostly casual basics & easy to assemble outfits.  This time however, we're bringing our eldest furbaby along so things could get interesting...

Layers of scarves, vests, & sweaters are top priority, as well as flat boots & party umbrellas for the Iowa game Friday...
I usually over-pack jewelry, but you just never know... (Asos, F21, J.Crew, Michael Kors, Seiko, & Zara)
Suitcase is definitely stuffed, layers tend to do that.  Packing a surprise for a friend, as well as a few new additions...
Bringing all Christmas gifts with us to avoid shipping them :)
This little guy is making the trek back to his homeland with us :)
Packed this sweater to wear tailgating on Friday morning! (Victoria's Secret PINK)

I purchased this shaggy beauty just in time for what appears to be an early winter.  Sometimes you just need something luxe to toss on over a simple sweater + skinnies combo.  Faux fur furever...

Photo Friday: Cozying Up

I'm really excited to share these photos that I shot over the past week.  The idea of sharing some personal milestones & holiday cheer had me impatiently awaiting the weekend.  Also, it's just one day closer to making the trek back to the Midwest next Tuesday for American Thanksgiving..

Woodland Princess

So into this flower crown headband, which is conveniently composed of the perfect fall color palette.  I've been searching hard for the perfect pink coat, at the perfect price, with the perfect amount of slouch for over a year.  It was yet another happy accident when I stumbled onto the Choies website & fell for this exact one...

Draped in a cape for some chilly weather this morning.  This cape has been worn more times in the past few weeks than anything I've ever bought, partly because it feels like wearing a socially-acceptable blanket out in public...

Zara Knows Me Well

I really upped my Zara game when they started shipping to the states & it got a little out of control when they began shipping to Canada.  Zara knows me & my collecting habits well, creating pieces every season that seem to pair perfectly with ones from seasons before...

Photo Friday: Bills vs. Chiefs

Happiest of Fridays to all of you! Last weekend we made the trek to Buffalo with friends to celebrate two anniversaries & a birthday at the Bills vs. Chiefs game.  We tailgated in Chiefs gear, which we were razzed for openly before the game (but not after since Buffalo lost) & had a great weekend away...
