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.

At First Light

Outfit Details:
Jacket: Wetseal
Dress: Forever21
Scarf & Tights: Target
Boots: TJmaxx
Earrings: Gift
Necklace: Vintage
Bracelets: France, Lace Affair, gift, and Claire's
Ring: Belgium

If I'm going to be honest I'd tell you that the days tend to blend into each other. I often forget whether it's Thursday or Friday - or even worse not realizing it's Tuesday. The day I stumbled outside to take these pictures I had hardly slept, having a wedding the day before and then something early in the morning my lack of sleep might have gotten to me. But having been up since five I took advantage of the early morning light - which is just gorgeous lighting all around. I took time curling my hair and made a mess in my room trying to find an outfit - honestly that's not too unusual. In the pictures the weather looks pleasant, perfect for a stroll, while the real deal was so cold I was huffing and puffing and jumping around like a little girl. After I went onto my day, and fulfilled my obligations I fell into bed and disregarded any leftover hours of daylight. That all being said there is something awesome about waking up with the sun. Heaven knows - me being a night owl - that doesn't happen very often, but the rare opportunity isn't lost on me. 
P.S. I'm such a sucker for fall colors.

Little Tastes of Fall

Outfit Details:
Sweater & Belt & Skirt: Kohl's
Dress: Spotted Moth
Hat & Tights & Boots: Target
Necklace: Lace Affair

This skirt was bought particularly for work, but of course it's had some other outings as well. It's a more classic look than I take to, as I prefer things a little more frilly, but this was fun none the less; and it gave me the chance to bring out one of my favorite dresses that I don't get to wear as often as I would like.

 By this time it feels like fall is practically gone, especially as most of the leaves have fallen and Halloween has passed. All it means is that it's nearly time to discover recipes for thanksgiving and that stores (already) have their Christmas decorations out. Still give me fall anytime - I have a serious crush on it.
