fashion friday // the black jumpsuit

Confession? I have yet to own a jumpsuit or a romper.

Every one I have tried on has caused the dreaded "diaper" effect...and you know what I mean.

However they can be really cute on other people, so I'm holding out hope. Specifically, I have hope for this one. It's pretty reasonably priced and the cut (and color) are classic enough that it can be dressed up or down. 

The necklaces are just eye candy. 

Happy Friday loves!

what to wear // thanksgiving weekend

traveling shirt | sweater | boots | bag | coat | scarf | jeans | hat
lounging sweatpants | sweater | booties

Thanksgiving is next week and I cannot wait. Like many of you we will be heading out of town early and I am already planning my packing. 

I love a coat with big secure pockets for flying so you can stash your boarding pass and cellphone right on your person. The airport (or car) is also the perfect place to wear your biggest pair of shoes or boots. They won't take up space in your luggage, and you can wear socks with them so you don't end up barefoot in security (gross!). And of course, layers are key when flying. I like a shirt with a sweater and a scarf in case it is extra cold. 

Dinner at our house is pretty casual, but if you want to dress up I love this polka dot shirt paired with these sweet bow tights. Adorable. 

And onto my favorite part of the weekend, lounging. Some comfy sweatpants, a warm and cozy cashmere sweater and these to.die.for fur booties are all you need for the perfect night (or day) in front of the fire.   


what to wear // a weekend in the country


This weekend we are headed upstate for a little weekend getaway. The weather is supposed to be rainy and cold which is just fine with me. It's about time fall showed up! Here are a few of my favorite fall items to create the perfect (and practical) look for outdoor adventures. 

One of my favorite fashion tricks is buying things in the boys section. I love this L.L. Bean vest for it's vibrant color and fuzzy lining. I normally buy a medium or large in boys and it fits just fine. A word of caution though, the website says the large in this vest is a 6-7 so I'm not sure this would actually fit any adult. Not to worry though, they also have classic women's versions at great prices. 

And have you seen the Rag & Bone collection for Hunter boots? I bought a tall pair of Hunters a few years ago and I remember thinking, "They are so expensive for rain boots." Then, I proceeded to wear them almost every day in the winter and they have more than made up for their price tag. These little boots are a pretty penny, but they are super stylish and you know when you're buying Hunter you're buying long-term quality. #enabler

Happy weekend my friends!
