Hearts and Stripes

Top// Scrapbook
Skirt// H&M
Tights// Aerie
Shoes// BCBG


Hello! So, this has definitely been the busiest week of my etsy career so far, and I'm definitely not complaining,b ut it sure makes it hard to give my beloved bloggie blog some attention. I have a few DIYS and Mailbox post to share with y'all, the day just needs more hours in it. Tomorrow I'm taking most of the day off cause I'm going to a taping of the Wendy Williams Show! I'm not a big fan of celebrity gossip and that kinda crap, but theres some thing about Wendy Williams that I just love. She's just effing fabulous. I can't wait to show you what I plan on wearing to that, its sooo cute. 

I better get some shut eye, cause I have to get up at like 5:45 in the morning and I'm exhausted.

So Long Autumn

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Dress// Miss Sixty
Boots// Vintage via Mom
Glasses// Ray Ban
Necklace// Vintage via Grandma

Two words: elastic and waistband. This is what I wore yesterday (Thanksgiving) and it's super comfy, and Thanksgiving is the last day of fall, in my head. I'm actually vegetarian, so I don't get too overly pumped about Thanksgiving, but my dad is a great cook and super accommodating to me and my non-meatring eating needs. One of the things he made yesterday was an onion suflee..and words cannot express how good it was. Oh my god. 
My two Aunts came over and dinner was interesting, lots of dysfunctional conversations but that was supposed to happen on Thanksgiving, right?

Anyways, now I can break out all my Christmas-y velvet dresses in red and black! My favorite kinds of dresses, and I only break them out around the holidays. 

I'm really enjoying my long weekend, and I'm off to go see Lincoln with the old folks!

Stripes and Tights

 Top/Dress// H&M
Boots// Bass
Brooch// My Shop
Belt// F21
Bracelet// Kate Spade
Ok, so me and this top have been through a lot together. Do you have garments like that? Ones you wear a bunch, especially during important times in your life, and when you wear them you're reminded of all kinds of things and feelings?

So this is just my go-to winter outfit, it has been for like the past 2 winters. Especially back when I was in school, getting dressed on a cold winter morning and getting ready for my commute, this sweater dress was my best friend cause I love how it looks and its so easy and warm. It came with me to my countless trips to visit Mike in Montreal back when he was in McGill.. Canada is COLD! (one time I spent spring break there and it was snowing..wonderful) So yeah, this will always be one of my favorite things. It's starting to pill at the bottom but I don't care! I will wear it until it magically disintegrates into nothing from so much wear. Everyones needs that one garment they share everything with!

Farmer Midge

Dress// Modcloth
Sweater// Anne Taylor Loft
Shoes// Blowfish
Glasses// Vintage

I had this dress for ages (I think it may be my very first modcloth purchase). I love it as my go to outfit dress, because it looks like a top and a skirt. Easy peasy! 

Nothing too new to report here, same old super busy work days and loving it! I may get my hair cut later this week, so its back to when it was all short and flippy and cute. My mom doesn't want me to, she likes it longer..but GOD MOM IT'S MY HAIR JEEZ! Stop ruining my life!

And scene.

That's all.

Cool Tones

 Top// Thrifted
Skirt// Zara
Glasses// Vintage
Shoes// Blowfish
Its the weekend! And its gonna be a normal one at that, no more staying inside, woo!
Going to a friends birthday party tonight, not sure if I'll be wearing this or not tough. And crap, I still have to make a card...
My brother finally got power back, so him and his little doggie are both leaving today. While it is nice and quiet with out them I'll miss it. But power being restored for more people is good.

I should probably get some work done now... or maybe just drink my coffee and watch tv. I'll flip a coin.

Houndstooth Reunion

 Coat// Bitten by Sarah Jessica Parker (discontinued.. :( )
Shoes// Target
Hi everybody! So, I know I've been missing in action as of late on this blog...
I'm still adjusting to living in a post hurricane, and now post snow storm area. I cannot begin to say how lucky me and my family were through all of this.
I JUST caught up with getting all my etsy orders out from before the storm, after the post office being out of power most of last week. The gas situation is out of control too, so I'm also very lucky that I'm able to walk to a lot of places I need to get to, and that i work from home. I only have a little gas left, so I'm just going to wait this out and walk everywhere until it goes back to normal, because i know I am not mentally equipped to wait online for 2 hours for gas.

Which is why I'm showing you this awesome coat today! Walking everywhere means taking advantage of wearing stylish outwear, and I haven't worn this coat in a  couple years. I got kinda sick of the houndstooth thing so I put it in the back of my closet, but re-discoverd it yesterday and decided I like Houndstooth again.
I also found two jelly beans in the pocket. Normal people find old receipts and maybe money in their old coat pockets, but I find candy.

Oh and meet Hilda, my new gnome I painted! Isn't she pretty?
