Halloween Attire

October 29, 2013

Halloween shirt: Target (last year, similar here). Cardigan: Loft (old). Jeans: Banana Republic. Flats: Target. Watch: Fossil. Necklaces: J. Crew and J. Crew Factory.

I love any and all holidays. Getting into the spirit via my outfits is one of my favorite ways to be festive! However, it's a challenge to wear something holiday-themed and to not end up looking like a 5 year old or a grandma. I think it's important to keep the literal holiday garments to a minimum. For example, with a pair of socks, or this shirt worn with an everyday outfit. 

Hope you all have a wonderful Halloween tomorrow!

Black and Tweed

Jacket: a market in London. V-Neck: Gap. Jeans: Old Navy. Heels: Target. Purse: Phillip Lim for Target (sold out). Necklace: J. Crew Factory

I got this coat in London at the Portobello Market, which was easily the best market I've ever been to. I'm not quite sure if the material is supposed to look like tweed or burlap. Whichever it is, I love the uniqueness of this coat!

Link Roudup

October 25, 2013

I've seen link roundups on some other blogs and I thought I'd give it a try! I like the idea of sharing with you lovely people some of my favorite things that I come across during the week on the wide expanse that is the internet.

1. I tweeted this the other day after I saw it on BuzzFeed. It mirrors my opinion of shopping perfectly.
2. If you need a puppy-pick-me-up (like we all do from time to time), then this link is for you. 
3. I made these caramel apple cupcakes last week and they were fabulous.
4. Bought this print (for $2!!). This saying has a special place in my heart so I couldn't resist.
5. Was introduced to Maison Gray and his lovely photographs. 
6. Laughed so hard watching celebrities read mean tweets about themselves. 
7. And this basically sums up how I feel all of the time. 

Have a fabulous weekend!

Favorite Sweater

October 22, 2013

Boots: Nordstrom Rack (last year). Jeans: Banana Republic. Sweater: Banana Republic (similar). Trench: Calvin Klein. Scarf: Gap (very old). Purse: Topshop (sold out). 

This is my absolute favorite sweater. When I saw that the high yesterday was only 38 degrees, I fished it out from its hiding place in the back of my closet! I love sweaters because you can just throw one on and you're good to go, no need to fuss about layering.

Fabulous Finds

October 17, 2013

It's been a while since the last FF, so there are a lot of them! I follow a few massive amount of blogs. As in I read around 30 blogs every day. It's my "me" time. Even when I've got homework or a pile of other to-do's I always give myself that 30-45 minutes a day to read my blogs and be inspired. In doing so, I come across an unnatural amount of things that I want. This is no good for my wallet. So instead of buying every single thing I'm lusting after, I bookmark them so I can do a little round-up and share all of these fabulous things with you!

1. Old Navy is seriously killing it right now. Loving this leather detailed sweater
2. Can't go wrong with a leopard flat, and that gold heel is too cute!
3. Fancy sweatshirts (sounds like an oxymoron, I know) are all the rage right now. From graphic to studded and jeweled. This chandelier sweatshirt is so cute from J. Crew.
4. Love this tweed number from ASOS.
5. I am craving a camel coat so bad!
6. Can never have too many sweaters. Love this one from L.L. Bean.
7. Old Navy is on here a second time with this tweed vest.
8. Can you say New Year's Eve dress?
9. And here's the New Year's Eve skirt.
10. This coffee table book about Paris street style would be such a fun read!

Over the weekend my mom and I volunteered at the ALS Superhero 5k/10k Dash in Saint Paul. We helped set up and then were on t-shirt duty. The ALS Association MN/ND/SD Chapter is important to my family, so we like to do all we can for them. I even do their social media!

If you have no idea what this post is about, here's the original explaining my quest to do 20 nice things while I'm 20.

Zara Sweater

October 8, 2013

 I picked up this sweater at Zara in London for around 17 pounds and have gotten so much wear out of it already! You've already seen it here and here and I have many more outfits planned for it! I like how when I paired it with this skirt it gave the illusion of a drop waist. 

Sweater: Zara (similar here). Skirt: LOFT. Necklace: J. Crew. Clutch: Gap. Shoes: Target.

Thanks to my fabulous sister Ellen for taking these pictures!
