I don’t think the jumpsuit trend will ever end for me. It’s just too easy. Even when it goes back to just being for babies and little kids, I’ll still be here, wearing my jumpsuits, being more comfortable than you. Yes, it makes using the restroom more of a chore, especially if I have a jacket on, but I think the all day comfort wins. I don’t even rush to change into my sweats when I get home if I’m wearing a jumpsuit because it already feels like I’m in them. It’s genius, really.

And these platform sandals are everything to me and I’ve owned them for les than 48 hours. I wasn’t sure if they were silly or cute, but at this point, I don’t even care because I get the height of heels and the comfort of flats and they are everything I didn’t know I needed and now I don’t want to take them off. Also, I feel like a Spice Girl. You know they were all about the platforms.

So that’s my life right now.

Oh, and we got a puppy. Scroll to the bottom to see the cutest little girl ever!

Meet Phoebe. The sweetest, tiniest Dachshund/Chihuahua mix. And yes, I have to look up the spelling to both of those every. damn. time. But she’s worth it.

Guys, she’s two pounds. That’s how much butter goes into one frosting recipe. How much do you want to cry right now at this tiny two pound puppy that only wants to give you kisses? So much, right?

Happy hump day! This week is crawling along, but that’s totally alright with me! I’m finally back to being healthy! I was so sick last week; I slept for about 3 days straight and that seemed to do the trick. Unfortunately, it looks like David might have caught my bug, so we’re hoping the same helps him.

We’re heading out of town this weekend for a family reunion of some sorts. Every year we do what we refer to as “second Christmas” with my mom’s family in January. My mom’s side of the family is a bit scattered so it’s the one time of year that we are all able to get together. I think my favorite part is just listening to my mom and her sisters tell stories; It never fails that everyone ends up in tears from laughter, even if we’ve heard the stories or jokes before. Also, it’s a second Christmas. What’s better than Christmas? A second one. True.

Did you catch my Snapchat (@crossroadsstyle) takeover for Crossroads on Sunday? If not, you must not be following me on social media; Check out the links above or below (obviously shameless self promotion for the win) and be sure to follow for updates. If you did, you would recognize this outfit and know that we went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It was our first time there, and actually, my first time out of the house in a few days after my hibernation, and it felt really nice to get dressed and be a real human again. Too bad we didn’t  need anything, because I fell in love with a couple things; It’s always the furniture that gets me!

Honestly, I like the Melrose Trading Post better. It’s smaller, which I like because I can see everything in one trip. The Rose Bowl just has more space for more crap. We were just getting to the good stuff when everyone started packing up, so I could be too quick to judge just yet.

We didn’t spend too much time at the flea market. We slept in and took our time getting there and it closed earlier than we expected. I ended up falling asleep in the car on the way home, so clearly good times were had. Also, clearly I am getting old when I can’t handle a 30 minute drive without falling asleep.

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!

Hey, it’s just me. Still waiting for Fall to start. Any day now LA. Green leaves are beautiful and all, but I’m ready for some orange and red. Hell, I’ll take bare trees if that’s what you need to do. I just really need a bit of Fall in my life. I’ll keep pretending and wearing sweaters, hats, and jackets while I crank up the air conditioner, just to make myself feel better. Yeah, I’m that whiny LA resident. I miss seasons. You can take the sunshine and warmth, all of it. I just want a crisp Fall. Luckily I am going home for a long weekend in a couple of weeks. It’s been hot there too, but should cool off by then.

In other news, I am impatiently waiting for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I am another one of those people who have been extremely excited to already see Christmas up in stores. If you don’t like it, steer clear of Target and Michaels for sure. I’ll take it all in, enough for all of you.

This whole entry has come off very passive aggressive so far, hasn’t it. I think my unintentional blog break made me a bit rusty.

Let’s start over. Happy hump day!

How completely dorky would it be for me to create a holiday bucket list; Maybe my own version of the 25 Days of Christmas? I feel like I wait all year long for this time of season and then it’s over in a blink of an eye and I’m just left wallowing in my post holiday depression.

If you have any ideas, I’d love to hear them!

Also, this blog needs a major overhaul and a face lift; a real domain, regular content and scheduled posts, possibly a professional photographer so I don’t have to drag my poor husband around. I’m trying to find some time to really learn just how to go about that. I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions, but this year might have to change.

Happy first day of Autumn! Now if only the weather will start cooperating over here in California. Those of you who live in areas with temperatures already dropping are probably massively eye rolling me, right? The grass is always greener, my friends!

UntitledWe spent Sunday exploring the Pop Up Flea at The Grove. I was a bit disappointed because when going to a flea market, I am expecting more vintage, craft, unique items for a bargain; The set up at this pop up was made up of all very new, curated, very expensive items. Oddly enough, mostly leather goods geared towards men. I went hoping for more women’s clothing and home accessories. Don’t get me wrong, everything was well made and crafted, but it just was not what I was expecting. We ended up spending a few hours shopping around The Grove after and I treated myself to a few goodies from Nordstrom and Topshop that I am pretty excited about!

I am literally obsessed with this jumpsuit and have already worn it out. Literally. Last time I wore it to work, I noticed a little split in the seam, right down my backside. Luckily, I have a couple fantastic co-workers and I was sewed up in no time.

I probably walked around this little pop up about 7 times. Even though I knew I couldn’t actually afford anything, it all was really beautiful and the craftsmanship was worth paying detailed attention to. David took his quick spin around and then spent some time in Barnes and Noble while I shopped the rest of the afternoon; With his encouragement! What a good husband, right?

We’ve been having a massive heat wave here in California, but today was dark and rainy, such a contrast from when I took these photos on Sunday in the sweltering heat. I think Fall is finally making an appearance. Before I completely pretend that LA has real seasons and suffer just to wear my sweaters and hats, I have a few more weekends for dresses and bare legs.

I was gifted this bright dress from Rowme. It’s not typically my style, but it’s such a classic shape that when I saw it, I knew that it was love!

When we have a free Sunday, need to find a gift for someone, or add an accent piece to our apartment, we head over to the Melrose Trading Post in Hollywood. That’s where we spent our Sunday afternoon this past weekend. It always happens that we find just what we’re looking for on our way out, after we swear that we’ve looked at every little thing. It’s my favorite treasure trove!

We know I love a good jumpsuit! I do have a couple more in my closet and wouldn’t be opposed to add to my growing collection!

Look, I do smile! I tend to not full on smile in blog photos – no reason why. I think I was smiling in theses photos because David was following me down the street, like my own personal paparazzi. This is actually my embarrassed smile; It was a Sunday morning, prime brunch time and the street traffic was heavy.

This is my last day before entering my last year of my twenties. It’s like my own personal New Year’s Eve. I have always thought that the real start of a new year was on your birthday, because, that literally is the end and beginning of a new year for you. I don’t make resolutions, but I do tend to make a mental list of goals and personal priorities to continue to better myself. I am hoping that this year I actually follow through. Maybe I should write it down! Has anyone ever done one of those “30 things before 30” goal lists and been successful with it?

I don’t know how I feel about getting older. I think I am generally okay with it; I’ve always been an old lady at heart anyway!
