Autumn on the west coast and on the east coast do not have much in common but I have found a trend that you can rock no matter if you rep Biggie or Tupac or both like moi. Behold the oversized scarf. Draped it over car coats! Moto jackets! Sweaters and dresses! The skies the limit.
Just drape it like it's hot. Sorry. Had to.
I'm an over-sharer by nature. Obviously, I have a blog. I share photos of myself and where to buy literally the clothes off my back. Sometimes I think this is strange and I wish I was a more tight lipped young lady. I wish I had more secrets. I really can't keep any. Like if I murdered someone let's just say the valet might hear about it. But I'm not the only one who loves to share. The new Taylor Swift album is full of love/loss stories from Taylor's life and I really admire how homegirl is letting it all hang out. Who cares that she's dated a ton of dudes for a few weeks at a time? If she was a guy I believe we'd all call her a player which everyone knows is a secret compliment.
I also love that in her new Blank Spacevideo she's all "yes I'm jealous and I can switch on a dime!" Not saying I relate or anything. I relate.
Now that I'm a grown-up there are tons of women in media to admire. Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Emma Stone, Jill Solloway and Gillian Flynn are all killing it. It's totally trending to be a multi-faceted woman with a point of view who also likes lipstick and leather jackets. It's suddenly cool to be a flawed woman and to talk about it openly. This is really awesome and I can't wait for the trend to get even bigger and explode like skinny jeans and Kombucha.
I'm realizing that this post has nothing to do with this outfit. Except maybe you thought it was cute? I definitely think this outfit is cute, and easy and highly wearable.
Been using this Moon necklace from Christine Elizabeth as a layering piece. Christine makes beautiful and affordable everyday necklaces.
Thanksgiving dressing is all about being comfy and sweet and dressed appropriately for all ages. It is not the day to try out your sexy, new, over the knee boots and bandage skirt combo. It's also not a great day to be in your favorite skinny jeans because they will give you a serious muffin top after you stuff yourself then wait 1-3 hours, eat a leftovers sandwich (not to be confused with a "leftover sandwich") and stuff yourself again.
I'll be sticking to an easy loose fitting dress like this one from Anine Bing. Play it even looser and leave all work related items at home. Bring a cross body bag filled to the brim with various lip balms because you won't need much else. Chances are your family won't ID you for liquor and dad won't make you split the check with him. By all means do not be that relative who brings their laptop. Do not "try to get some work done" between dinner and dessert. Talk to your grandmother instead. Ask her how she met your grandfather or really go for the gold and ask something juicy like "what's the scariest thing you ever did Mimi?"
I suggest getting up early and watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade while wrapped in a blanket and sipping something warm. Santa Claus' arrival at the end of the parade marks the beginning of the holiday season and it's one of the most magical TV moments of the year.
