Gap Crazy Stripes, J.Crew Topcoat & the Best Vintage Ring Ever





Well, it snowed another 4 inches..brrr. I'm trying to stay sane, cooped up in my house. I guess it forces me to clean and get some much needed organizing done. Is it snowing where you live? If so, how do you play in the snow?
This ring i'm wearing today, I found at this cute, online vintage shop. Frippery Vintage. I follow her on IG @frippery_vintage, where she shows most of her collection. If you love vintage jewels, you should check out her store. I'd love to hear what items you love!
Thank you for stopping by!

J.Crew Bright Orange, Stripes & the Best Bobble Hat Ever!





It has been snowing non stop the last few days and as you can see, the show is almost over my boots! I'm not a huge fan of the snow, but I do love layering and love wearing my coats! I love coats and have collected quite a few in my days.  I recently found these stripe finger-less gloves at Forever 21 and have worn them more than I thought I would. The Hunter Boots are my favorites, but they don't work well in the snow, I need to get the shearling inserts because even with heavy socks, my feet freeze, they are definitely a rain boot. The best part of what I'm wearing today, is my hat. Not only was it hand made by the sweetest gal ever, but it is so warm and not too tight on my head. Some beanies give me a headache after awhile, but this hat I could wear all day, and I do! Now I just need to get it in more colors!
Thank you for reading!

Rebecca Minkoff Bojana Velvet Booties, Vintage L.A.M.B Cheetah Clutch & Studded Details


These studded boots from Anthropologie are old as well as this vintage necklace, but still two of my favorites. This vintage aviator jacket is a recent find.


This clutch by L.A.M.B is old as well, but these Chloe booties are somewhat new. I think this cheetah print clutch was from one of the first roll outs of the L.A.M.B handbag collection in 2007. I have several from that collection and love them all. 

I have posted a picture of this studded, red leather jacket before, I just had to post another one because I just love it. I know the bright red with the studs might be a big, "no" for some people, but I don't care. 


This sweater and clutch/cross-body, are a couple more oldies that I just can't part with, but these velvet booties are a recent purchase from Rebecca Minkoff. Velvet is so in right now and I just love how these, with the crushed velvet texture, look so different than most of the booties I have found. I feel like these could get scuffed up a little easier than the flawless velvet booties, which makes them easier to wear, I think anyways. 
As I have said before, I am a sucker for a good vintage find. I especially love items from my mother's closet. Some people I know, don't like vintage at all. They only like the newest items or items that have never been worn. Or vintage name brand items, like vintage Chanel or vintage Gucci. 
Which one are you? What's your shopping vibe? Old? New?

Outfit Planning for the Cooler Weather






Fall dressing is my favorite kind. I love bright, bold colored coats, warm fuzzy/furry scarfs, and the textures of the skirt and dresses made for fall. Here are a few looks I put together while trying to outfit plan for the week. Let me know what you think and thanks for stopping by!

J.Crew Ratti Tile, Chelsea Glitter Boots & A Few More Favs

 This weekend, while trying to organize and purge my closet a little bit, I played around a little with some old favorite prints ans some new closet additions. 
I like to keep my closet organized and try, for the most part, to keep it color coordinated, but I also like to move things around a bit. Bring pieces I haven't worn in awhile to the front, etc. 


This bold, Ratti Tile print, an older print from J.Crew, is one of my all time favs. There are so many options to wear this with. I tend to always reach for the neutral or basic pieces, to not add to this crazy print. Plus, this coat is an outfit all on it's own. Don't you agree?


Glitter boots? I mean..need I say more?


Snake skin boots are always a little tricky for me. They are that item that you see on other people and think, "oh they are so cute!" but when I put them on, I feel so awkward and think, "do these look okay?" 

These bow booties and my absolute favorite. They are an older style by Chie Mihara, bought at Anthropologie. This pink silk, fluted skirt from J.Crew is just perfection. I know there has been some similar styles of this skirt in last few years, but this one is my favorite thus far. 
Lately, I have been addicted to the Game Pigeon game app on my phone. Have you tried it? It's fun playing with my kids while i'm at work or while everyone else is panicking over the election tomorrow..I'm not one to get worked up about the election. I will make my vote and myself a stiff drink, then move on, back to purging my closet!
Thank you for reading, and for those who are stressed about tomorrow, 
"May the odds be ever in you favor!"

Outfit Planning







While organizing my closet today, I decided to plan for the busy weekend and try to get ahead and put some looks/options together. It has been really cold here the past few days, which is good because I love wearing coats and J.Crew always has the best selection and I have gathered quite the collection. 
The best thing I found while attempting to organize , was my green flannel that was my very first purchase from J.Crew waaay back in the 90's.  I have always loved green and maybe that's why I was never able to part with it?
Well that's my spiel..
Thank you for stopping by.

J.Crew Cashmere Topcoat, Halloween Favorites & Vintage Inspired Teacups



I love vintage teacups and teapots. I would say that I collect them. I have some that were my mother's and some that were my great-grandmother's and grandmother's.  Some, I have picked up in different vintage shops, etc. etc. So, when I saw these two vintage inspired wax warmers, I knew I had to add them to my collection. 






This week, we have started to get out our Halloween decorations. I have all of my mother's holiday decor and this skeleton and witch are two of my favorites. Webster, the huge spider, tends to move around the house during until Halloween is over.



Yes, even on a rainy day, I still wear my sunnies. These House of Harlow 1960 sunglasses are one of my favorites as well as the song that is playing on the radio, "Jeremy" by Pearl Jam, one of my favorite bands. My bestie and I also went to the Maroon 5 concert earlier this week, best concert iv'e seen in awhile. 


This was a good mail week. This dress from Forever 21 is the perfect length to wear over jeans when the weather gets colder. This j.crew cashmere coat is the perfect shade of orange, it is suuuper soft too. Last but not least, this knit bobble hat, hand made, is so perfect that I wear it almost everyday. Check out her Etsy shop Here
