Black Friday

Good day, everyone! Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving celebrating with the ones you love most. I went to San Leandro (my cousin's house), and had a marvelous dinner filled with laughs, old family recipes, and tradition. I live for my mom's sweet potato pie and my aunt's famous mac & cheese. Thanksgiving is probably one of my most cherished holidays since it's a real big to-do in my family. Everyone gathers 'round....whereas Christmas is a lot more lowkey. I really couldn't have had a better holiday- and I'm very thankful that I had Thanksgiving off this year.
Any of you end up going Black Friday shopping? I'm curious about any deals you may have found! Please let me know in the comments!

Mixing Prints

Hey guys- how's your week going so far? Hope it's a short one for you with the Thanksgiving holiday this week! Can't wait to be at home with family- and it is expected to rain, and I LOVE rainy holidays inside. Still debating if I should venture out for a little Black Friday shopping. Haven't seen any great deals yet- if you hear of any let me know!

Gotta Love It

I've spent most of my life in dresses/skirts. Because I grew up going to Catholic school, we wore a uniform, and rain or shine, you wore a skirt every. single. day. Sometimes, I just feel more put together in a dress...even when I want to be cozy in the cold. This chunky sweater dress feels like a blanket on, and comes in multiple colors! It also matches many of the scarves in my collection, so I can see myself remixing this over and over during the cold season.

Bundled Up

Since I work early mornings, and some of my commute includes walking, it's no surprise that I have more than a few comfy coats to match my wardrobe. All of my coats are classic, timeless, and have really held their value. Many of my coats I've had since college, and they still look great over any outfit I put on! My favorite spots for a cool coat include Zara, J. Crew, & Nordstrom Rack. Old Navy surprisingly has quality coats, including a few J. Crew dupes for more than half the price! Check them out for quality vests, too.

Grunge & Fringe

Hey guys. I am sooo excited Thanksgiving is next week. For the first time in my working years, I am off! That means precious time with family, good food, and football! I spent this week attempting to put up my Christmas tree, get the key people in my life their Christmas gifts, and prep for the pie I'm making for next week's feast!

Leather on Leather on Leather

Hey all! There has been a serious CHILL in the air so to see me not completely bundled in a blanket scarf and chunky sweater is a rarity these days. I had lunch in Oakland with two of my best friends from college (AOE), and then ran some errands to prepare for a dinner I'm hosting at my house this weekend.
I kept this look simple, and even broke the Labor Day rule by wearing white jeans. Because I'm wearing a long tunic and over the knee boots, there isn't too much white so I think I'll be alright :)

Stripes & Suede


Hey all! I wanted to take a moment and share another way I've styled this suede skirt. It's a great Fall staple, and instead of just pairing it with a black top, I tried a striped one! Also- this bag is amazing! I've been on the hunt for the perfect bag. I tend to like black leather... I wanted one that could be worn crossbody or comfortably on the shoulder...a zipper to prevent pickpocketing (hello San Francisco!)... and one that would fit the copious amount of stuff I have. This bag definitely fits the bill- and will be featured a lot here on the blog! It's the Marc Jacobs Too Hot To Handle 2 bag. The original has a metallic button closure, so I find this one a little more secure with the zipper!
