Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, but to be honest, there is not a holiday I don’t enjoy! We are heading up to Sacramento tonight to spend the weekend with my family.

I didn’t put together a proper Thanksgiving post, but I do want to say a few words about what I am thankful for.

I am thankful for having a caring, loving husband who is there for me whenever I need him, no judgements or questions asked and who makes me feel safe and loved, always.

I am thankful for having a supportive, strong family who I enjoy spending time with. You don’t get to pick your family, so I am very lucky that they are who I would pick if I had the choice.

I am thankful for the amazing friends that I have that are more of an extension of family.

I am thankful for the opportunities that I have in my life and that I have a chance to take advantage of. Not everyone is so lucky to be healthy and safe in their own home and environment and I am so grateful for my life. I am thankful that I am growing and gaining the strength that I need to push aside my fears and take chances. I am thankful for the blessing that has been given to me to be able to live a safe, healthy, and successful life.

And now sharing these outfit photos seems a bit silly, but that’s what I get for procrastinating and not creating content for a proper post.

I’m wearing this scarf these days like I need it to keep my head on. I think the small detail is a nice touch to a simple outfit. I need to expand my collection.

If you are celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, I hope you have a beautiful day full of family, friends, thanks, and food.

Life is pretty tame these days. I’m trying my best to lay low and rest so I can completely recover from this viral infection I’ve had for the last few weeks. I typically jump back into life, hanging out with friends, and working out too soon after being sick and it makes my symtpoms linger. I feel super lazy and guilty for being such a bum, but it’s definitely in my best interest to take care of myself. I want to be able to be able to enojy this holiday season, being healthy and happy!

I think you can tell how pale and weak I am even in these photos! This was a mid day, no makeup, weekend sandwich run!

First of all, is it allowed to express love over a pair of jeans? These jeans are the best. The flare is so wide, I wasn’t sure at first, but I just could not leave them behind!

Second, this tunic? So fun! I use to dress with more of a boho flare and I feel that I’ve transistioned a bit to a more minimalistic style, but I can’t help but revisit that boho look sometimes.

It is so insane to me that it’s mid November and almost Thanksgiving. I am so excited for the holidays!

Getting dressed and realizing that I’ve ended up head to toe in Crossroads finds, thrifted or new merchandise, happens a lot. It’s definitely my first stop, whether I’m looking for something specific or just have an urge to shop. It’s a place that I can go that I don’t have to worry about looking at the price tag and being disappointed and then depressed that I have to leave it behind. I could gush all day!

I’ve worn this outfit multiple times, and it might look familiar because I wore it to the Crossroads Spring Social shopping party a month or so ago and shared some photos on Instagram. It came back into the rotation and I remembered that I never took proper photos!

Also, I think you need to know that the Backstreet Boys documentary is now on Netflix, so you’re running out of excuses to not see it. It’s that simple.

This is me just thinking about watching it. For real. Except at this exact moment, I really am watching it. We don’t really need to explain how happy it makes me, because I’d like you to think I’m a bit more normal than I really am.

With 9 days to go, I am busy, busy, busy! I’ve been working non stop on making sure this wedding goes smoothly! I am kind of obsessed with this outfit and have been wearing it a couple times a week. Other than this, I’ve been in leggings and tank tops. There’s no need to put much effort into getting dressed when I am just sitting on the computer and the phone, planning all day!

I have been a list making, DIYing, everything down to the teensy detail busy body the past few weeks! Wedding planning is super stressful, and somehow I kind of like it. Even when I compain and say I hate it and show a bit of my bridezilla side. I am so confident that everything is going to turn out so beautifully, I cannot wait to be able to share photos and tell you all about it!

I also can’t wait for the night where I get a full night sleep and not toss and turn with my wedding induced stress.

I have only done a couple of DIYs in my life, but this is my favorite. If you count cutting the sleeves off of a denim jacket as a DIY. With my lack of expertise, I certainly do!

We are nearing the end of summer and that means starting to layer summer pieces. I love being able to wear my summer pieces just a bit longer, like this sheer top, into the fall with layering!

Why, oh why, when I am the most busy do I feel that I want to take on even more? Is it because I become busy, check things off my list, get things done and reveal in the satisfaction of it so much that I want even more? Probably. Luckily, I know my limits and even though I have found a few more interests, I am still only focusing on getting through wedding planning and the wedding. Three weeks to go. Three. Weeks. It’s a bit mind boggling to me! What I am supposed to do and talk about after it’s over? I suppose that’s where these new found hobbies will be able to come into play!

David and I had a mid-week lunch date to, what else, talk about some wedding details! I threw on this day time little black dress from Cali Free to beat the So Cal heat.

After lunch, David thought he saw Ceelo Green walk into a restaurant and although we had already eaten, we were a bit curious to confirm his suspicions and we walked in. Once we were in and we realized it was literally us and Ceelo, we decided to save face we had to grab a drink!

I totally felt out of practice taking outfit photos! I have kind of put this little blog on the back burner the last month to really focus on getting my wedding planned. I’ve missed it! It not only gives me an excuse to get dressed, because come on, I’d live in pajamas if it was appropriate, but it’s the comradery of the blogging community that is so fun!

After lunch I spent the rest of the day running errands. Getting married reminds me that I am actually an adult and it has made me want to keep a presentable home and become more organized. My number one thing to do to feeling more organized is cleaning out my closet! I do it several times a year and of course stop by Crossroads Trading Co to sell my clothes for either a bit of cash or trade, if I have a shopping itch! Now, I don’t even have to go to Crossroads to sell my clothes! Have you heard that Crossroads now offers a Sell By Mail option? You simply request a bag from their website, fill it up with your clothes and send it back, postage free! You can still choose to receive cash or trade, and if you want the clothes that don’t sell back, you can have them send it back for a small fee, or they will donate the rest for you. It’s such a great option for those who are busy, or who may not have a Crossroads near them.

Hello? Anyone still around?

Excuse my absence. I’ve been sick and have now come to diagnose myself with bronchitis. Last week I felt like I was hit by a big rig; It was like I had the worlds worst hangover for an entire week. Do you know what worse than the worst hangover? The worst hangover without the fun the night before.This week it’s down to sniffles and coughing, but I could probably fill an ocean with the fluid rattling around in my lungs right now. It’s so nice not to have health insurance. I am counting down the days until this wedding of mine; health insurance by marriage!

I am so ready to be healthy again. I never thought I would say this, but I really miss working out and running! I have definitely been lying low, trying to rest up. Usually when I am sick, I keep going so I don’t get behind or miss anything, and then I end up sick for an enitre month. I’m trying hard this time to do it right, but time is really testing my patience!

In other news, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have seen the other day that I did some extra work on a made for TV Christmas movie with Dean Cain. It’s probably the lowest form of work someone in LA can get, especially considering I was not paid for it. But believe you me when I say it was a dream come true. I have wanted to be in a made for TV Christmas movie my whole life. They are literally one of my favorite things in the world! I am cheese filled Christmas fiend and I was so in love with that day! The best thing is that I got called back to do more today! I am pretty sure there is a good chance my face might make it into the final edit for at least 1.5 seconds.

Is it Christmas yet?

A few things: I look like a watermelon. It is evident that I do not iron my shirts. My necklace is awesome.

This necklace is from Penh Lenh Deisngs, meaning “whole” in the Cambodian language, Khmer, and what makes them so special, is that they are a handcrafted jewelry line that’s working with Cambodian women rescued from sex trafficking. I was really excited to receive a piece of this beautiful line, not only because I think the necklace is beautiful, but for the empowering message it stands for. Penh Lenh’s mission is to empower these young women to pursue their life goals through quality education, vocational training, and advanced career opportunities.

Please check out more from the Penh Lenh collection!

Do you think this cliche pretend walking photo is bad enough to get my on GOMII would recommend not clicking that if you are an easily offended blogger.

Proof of my sickness. Also it may be the first picture anyone has published on their style blog of them mid cough. It’s kind of gross. You’re welcome.

I don’t know if you have noticed over the last couple of years of me sharing my outfits, but I occasionally dress like a Grandma.

And I like it.

Very much like Macklemore, I go thrift shopping and I wear your Grandma’s, and let’s be honest, sometimes Grandpa’s, clothes. I am able to admit that some of my favorite outfits are not the most flattering, or what is considered stylish, and I hate this word, but “hip”, but damn if this was not the most comfortable outfit I’ve worn in a long time. Besides my pajamas, and I work at home so I am in pajamas the majority of the day!

It probably would not surprise anyone that this outfit is completely thrifted, minus the necklace; If you are a reader of this blog, you know I thrift often. If you are not, you would take a look at this outfit and take a good guess that at least half of it came from Goodwill. Maybe even that I got dressed in the dark. And that’s ok.

I would not call this a fashion risk, but I like to dress how I feel and dress like myself, and deep down, I am an 80 year old woman trapped in a 27 year old’s body.

Hey, it’s Friday! TGIF! Except I work at 7 a.m. tomorrow morning, but at least I get to stay in my pajamas, drink my coffee slowly and no one is the wiser!

Does anyone have any wild and crazy plans for this weekend that I can live vicariously through?

We almost have our Save the Dates printed. Shits getting real, guys. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful friend who has offered to design and print the Save the Dates! It is one less thing to stress about, and Lord knows I could use less stress.

I’m one of those people who stress and worry about absolutely nothing. It’s fun times!

I am excited to share more about the wedding planning process. Would anyone be interested in seeing an update with the style and feel we are going for?
