Wine Mom Thanksgiving

 Back into the south I go for the holidays. Thanksgiving was held at my uncle's pad and let me tell you. This guy lives out in the boonies. Driving there the night before, I got lost and out in the country, there's no street lights! So imagine the fear I had. 

The talk of my outfit was wine mom from Beverly Hills. Look, I see it as, you're going to eat enough for 4 countries. You have to wear appropriate pants once your pant size blows up in 30 minutes. As for the turtle neck, I f*king love a good turtle neck! A little advice from the past: don't wear a dress unless you are planning to keep it unzipped from being stuffed all day.

It's always a blessing to get to spend family time every year. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Tasseled Out

I have never been a fringe person, but for some reason, this particular jacket sucked me in. It's fall time, so why not? I stepped out of my black and white and no fringe world with this brown and white and fringe look. 

Also, fringe makes me wanna dance. It's just the flowy movement it gives. It's unfortunate you guys are seeing it through these pictures and not through real life. Maybe, it's best that way.

2/3 Primary Colors

There's a category of items that I have too much of and will always continue to add to. First and fore-most will be shoes. The other: coats. I love a good coat because they literally make an outfit sometimes. For example, wearing a black sweater with black pants would be too simple. But add a coat and bam: not too simple.

My example doesn't even go with what I'm wearing in this post, but I'm sure you guys understand. 
I did two of the three primary colors in this look with tying the colors together due to my lil' coat.
  • Yellow button down: Thrift store
  • Blue dress: gifted from my best friend!
  • White coat with 'graffiti' print: c/o Zaful
  • Black/gold booties: Vince Camuto
  • Black/gold purse: BCBG
  • Gold arrow necklace/ring: c/o Onecklace (has my name on it!)

Spooky Strawberry

For the past few Halloweenies, I have dressed up as characters in scary movies that I have never seen. I'm a scaredy cat, so anything scary does not flow with me well. Every time I dressed up, it was a fashion forward kind of look. More so inspired by that character instead of dressing exactly like them. Check out the past posts:
2013: one / two
This year, I decided to go with one of my favorite things: food. Here I am, a (not so) spooky strawberry. I would have been a carrot, but I don't own any shades of carrot orange. 
Which, if you guys are looking for last minute ideas for next Halloween, try opting for a food. You really cannot go wrong, unless it's celery (the only veggie I will not eat).

Coffee Shop Crushing

Being in New York has made me an avid coffee drinker. I still love my nightly teas and morning hot chocolates, but I've grown to drink coffee just as much. Although, if I drink coffee after 1:30/2 PM, I will not sleep that following night. So that's a bummer.

I am the type of person who will not waste a day relaxing in doors. My definition of relaxing is not staying in at home, I would prefer going to a park and people watching or reading. Because of this, I explore everything. Meaning, I have probably been to every hip/cool/boring/trendy coffee shop in the city! Also, I realized that NY is just a city that lives off of coffee and bagels. Coffee shops on every corner and bagels are at every photo shoot!

I have compiled a list of my fav coffee shops for you guys to explore if you're ever in New York. The places on my list have either a backyard, industrial settings, spacious seatings, or just all around cuteness:
 The Cupcake Shop
 The Sweat Shop
 Yours Truly 
Nolita Mart & Espresso Bar
 Capitoline Grounds
 Sincerely, Tommy
 Ost Cafe
 Brooklyn Roasting Company
 Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
 Spread House Coffee
 Happy Bones
