The Calm Before the Turkey

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! A day full of family, friends..and food of course! For those of you in America…you know the drill. Dress your best, show up at your aunt’s house, and eat. And then eat some more, and then some more. Don’t forget the pie.

So we all site down at a beautiful table and enjoy eachother’s company.

No-Shop November

This whole no-shave November gimmick has got me thinking about a challenge of my own. For this month, I am not going to purchase anything clothing or accessory related. Necessities only. I spend way too much money on things I think I need, and am seeing my bank account suffer.

So this lovely month of November I will window shop! I will post things I am drooling over, and who knows, maybe by the end of the month I will know what I can afford and actually make a well thought out shopping choice!

Join me in window shopping!

First up: This amazing twill coat!  Twill Trench Coat from Riordan Roache- $179.99

Resist the Urge to shop!

Lets Talk About #2….Pencils

I recently signed up for a few fashion classes at a local college this fall, and my first day is on Monday! What?! I haven’t been out of school for that long, but it is still a weird feeling going back to school. Since I will be surrounded by aspiring fashion designers, I need to be on my A-game!  So let’s continue our countdown (oh my almost there!) and see some must haves for going back to school!

Striped Backpack from Bagy Bag

Mustard Skirt from Flattery

Pencil Tool Roll from Bundle and Stow

Vintage 1940s notebook from Salvage Nation

Stump Laptop Table from Real Wood Works

Enjoy!

Let’s Cuddle Up

If you were me, you would be sitting here at 8 in the morning, with a fan pointed directly at you, while its a lovely 82 degrees out…at 8 in the morning.  But if you were any where else but here you would be happily winding down your summer and preparing for the best time of the year ever! FALL! You get to wear scarves and coats, boots and tights and everything in between. At least if you live any where but Phoenix.

That’s besides the point. While living in Switzerland, Fall was my absolute favorite. It was a season I got to enjoy but dragging out those coats I only seldom got to wear. So let’s take a look at a few of my favorite items to savor this fall.

First off, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this belted jacket from forever 21!

Although I already have some like these….I still need this pair of Steve Madden Boots from Norstrom

I am sucker for a cozy sweater, and this beauty from Spool 72 is no exception!

Finally I found this hipster magnet of a scarf from Blue Birds Fly Boutique on Etsy. So simple and so cozy looking!

Keep dreaming of colder weather my dears!
