Red Alert, people: Thanksgiving is next week!!! Praise the Lord! In just 10 days I will be stuffing my face with mac and cheese, casseroles of various sorts, and a medley of carbohydrates that will lead me to unbutton my jeans in satisfaction at the end of the day. Keep an eye out, because later this week I’ll be posting some ideas for what to wear for Thanksgiving, and I made sure to keep in mind the concealment of full stomachs, because that’s usually a pretty big concern of mine on the holiday.

On a different note, I wore this outfit one day while I was in Charlotte a couple weekends ago! I love the look of this lace top under the leather jacket! This jacket is from last year, but they brought the same jacket back this year, which I linked above, and it just has gold hardware instead of silver! It also comes in five colors, one of which being a metallic color. I’m not sure how I feel about it…It’s very bold, but I feel like it could be styled in really cute way! Go check it out and let me know what you think about it!

I hope you all are having a great start to your week! I’m just trying to make it through to the end!

Here we are. We made it through another week, meaning we are one week closer to fall. To celebrate, I watched two Christmas movies this past weekend and I don’t regret it one bit. I know I’m the kind of person that a lot of people cant stand (Cue the “It’s not even October!” crowd), but the holiday season makes me happy, so I’m going to keep milking it for as many months as I can.

I keep dressing warm in the hopes of summoning the cooler temps, but much to my dismay, it hasn’t really been working. I am not one to give up though, so I decided to share this lovely trench coat with you all. Maybe some of you should snag it too in order to bring on the brisk weather that I am in desperate need of. Come on, people! Bring on the dead leaves!

This trench coat is so flattering, as it has an adjustable waist that you can tighten or loosen to your liking. I also love the hood, and the fact that it is longer too, so it will look cute with dresses as well. The color is called ‘grey’ online, but in person it looks like more of a really pale blue to me. I am really looking forward to layering this with a lot of different looks once it starts to actually get cooler outside. I need to get myself a plaid scarf or button-up that has this color somewhere in the pattern to wear with it!

I am finally back in Charleston after being Charlotte for quite some time due to Hurricane Irma. Luckily no damage was done to my place and I am so thankful. I am also super thankful for all of the unexpected time I got to spend with my family and boyfriend while I was home too. Having to evacuate for hurricanes is soooo stressful, but always a blessing in that sense.

Bows on Bows

Here I am with another post! Just a couple more weeks of freedom this summer, until the school weeks begin. I can’t say I’m too excited about that, but I am excited about this outfit! I love me some bows. Big bows, small bows, all bows. They are the perfect feminine and fun addition to any clothing piece. When I saw these shoes I about died. They come in red too, and I’m probably gonna need to go to the beach and throw my wallet in the ocean to keep myself from buying them. I paired these bow shoes with this adorable top that has a bow on the back, because why not? Too much, perhaps? Hey, at least I’m not wearing a bow in my hair. I do have my limits, you know?

As I’m posting this, I’m currently moved into my new apartment, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve decided that I will definitely do a bedroom tour once it is fully decorated! I am by no means an expert on, or even slightly skilled at, interior decorating, but I think it will be fun to share! Have a great week everybody!
