So my little greetings of Christmas is a little late, but better late than never. Unfortunately, it wasn't a white Christmas, despite all the snow before the holiday. But then Christmas isn't really about the snow, is it?

Burnt Orange

Outfit Details:
Airforce Coat & Necklace: Vintage
Shirt: Versona (birthday present)
Skirt: TJmaxx
Scarf & Ring: Belgium
Infinity Love Belt: Ruche
Earrings: Rue21
Purse: bought off ebay, but originally from Hottopic

I should have something amazing to say, but it's been a rough week and I'm not feeling very inspiring. But I didn't want to forgo my outfit post, mainly out of loyalty to myself, so here it is. As for the outfit, strange as it is for a redhead-unnaturally I'll admit-I love this color on me, especially when I have earrings to match.

Winter Walks

Coat & Belt: Kohl's
New Kensington Embellished Blouse: Ruche
Skirt: TJ Maxx
Tights: Target
Art Deco Diva Earrings: Laceaffair
Jewelry: Homemade
Scarf: from Belgium

Snow is so strange. From afar it looks like peace and like a bit of magic, just out of reach but perfect in those first few hours as it falls from the skies. However, when you stand among it, it's cold and wet. Some days it sticks to everything and sounds like Styrofoam when you walk on it ech! It's like the step from behind the door to in front of it changes everything. That being said, some days it still can be lovely, whether watching it from a window or  standing right in the middle of it. One of my favorite holiday traditions is a walk about my small town, wistfully covered in snow. I haven't had a chance yet for this walk, but I think it's going to have to happen soon. A cup of hot chocolate in hand, gloves and mitts, and warm socks and it's time from a winter walk.

Puppy Sidekick

Coat & Cardigan: Kohl's
Tights & Gloves: Target
Infinity Love Belt: Ruche
Jewelry: homemade

With winter comes the sudden longing not to have to go outside for pictures, I don't mind the season or the snow that it brings with it, but it's the lacking hours of daylight that get to me. As I work nights it makes the glimpses of the sun I see all the more important, The sun is barely up when I leave work, and sets before I even wake up. That being said, I still enjoy winter and relish the days I'm awake early enough to capture natural light. 

This dress is so fun, as always I search for outfits with unusual details like the skirt. It's easy to dress up or down, and it's been wore to birthday celebrations, baby showers, and shopping adventures - all very successfully I'd say. But, I'd have to say, that my favorite accessory is the little puppy by my side. Seriously, I don't know how people can not love animals. This little guy, he's like my sidekick.

Red Among the Leaves

Jacket: Wetseal
Belt: Kohl's
Boots: Target
Purse: Forever21
Scarf: Claire's
Necklace: Lace Affair
Bracelet & Ring - gift

One rule that I like to break is that red heads should never wear anything red. Red, being one of my favorite colors, has always had a special place in my closet; and I've never been afraid to overdose on the color. (This outfit is a good example of that) As for this dress, while the red is embracing, it was the cut out front and back that caught my attention, it's always the details like that that I like to look for. In the end I knew this was going to be a love of mine. 

The day these pictures were taken it was the last warm day of November, I didn't even really need my jacket. The leaves on the trees had reached their peak and finally they were starting to abandon their place in the sky and leave their colors on the ground. Some of them might have gotten caught in my hair, which was only troublesome is someone else noticed. It was such a beautiful day and it's sad to see these kinds of days gone until next year.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is traditionally my favorite holiday. So from me to you, I wish you all a happy thanksgiving - or as it is more affectionately known - happy turkey day!

P.S. Beware, one day all the turkeys might gang together and lead a rebellion against this day, so make sure to glance over your shoulder from time to time. 
P.S. - P.S. This is a little sneak peak of my next outfit post.

A Step Back in Time

Wendy Dress/Top: Lace Affair
Boots & Blazer: Target
Necklace: made by me
Ring: Vintage

I love vintage inspired clothes, which is why stores like Ruche, Lace Affair, and Modcloth are my favorite online stores. This outfit just feels vintage, whether it's the Wendy dress or the skirt or rather both. I love anything and everything that can make you feel as if you've been transported to a different time, it's like magic.

Autumn Colors

Outfit Details:
Sweater: Kohl's
Shirt: stolen from my mom
Infinity Love Belt: Ruche
Tights: Target
Boots: TJmaxx
Necklace & Purse: Charming Charlie's
Bracelet: Forever21
Earrings: Body Central

For some strange reason my camera was only giving my grainy pictures, but somehow it goes with the outfit. I ended up wearing this to a bonfire, the weather and the outfit all merged together to be a perfect piece. Plus we all know that I like themed outfits, at least on some level, and this one felt so fall themed. The only complaint I'd have, is that the material wrinkles like crazy.

Three Days

Outfit Details:
Sweater & Jeans: Kohl's
Boots: Target
Earrings: Forever21
Necklace: Vintage
Rings: Europe
Braclet: Lace Affair

I wore this outfit three times in one week - but don't tell anyone. Each day played part of a slight variation, the main thing that remained the same was the shirt. It took a trip into the city, played a part in a lazy day at home, and ventured to the vet so that a kitten (Myka) could get her shots. Outfits like this - they are keepers.

See Spot Run

Outfit Details:
Boots: TJmaxx
Skirt & Shirt: Kohl's
Tights: Target
Vest: Body Central
Necklace: gift

The best thing about coming home from work is this - not too little - little guy. He gets all hyped up when he sees me, runs around in circles and steps on my foot - it's how he shows affection. No matter how long a day seemed, he manages to brighten it up when I see him charging towards me, normally before I even get out of the car. Life would not be the same without these little creatures along our sides.
