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.

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 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!

Alright, I know I am not actually jumping for joy in these photos, but I am in love with a good jumpsuit and this is one of the good ones. I spied this baby on the Crossroads Instagram a couple months back as a part of their new merchandise stock and did not wait to run to my local store to pick it up. It’s so perfect. I think I wore it three days in a row last week. This might be why I only post once a week or so; I get obsessed with a certain outfit and I basically wear it out.

p.s. I want to wear this flower crown every day.

It has already been a super long week for me, although it’s only Wednesday. I am planning a super quiet weekend with a lot of sleep! I am beginning to realize just how much sleep I get and deprive myself of and it’s definitely catching up to me.

June gloom has come early! It’s been gloomy and almost on the chilly side in LA lately and I could not be more in love with it!

Summer is right around the corner and my weekends are becoming full with road trips, family gatherings, birthdays, and visions of the beach, barbeques, and probably many weekend afternoons thrift shopping and antique fair hopping. Our little home is finally coming together and we’re looking for a few more unique pieces to add and LA antique thrift stores, flea markets, and antique fairs are almost overwhemlingly stocked. If I can figure out indoor photography, perhaps I will share some photos of my favorite areas when we are finished! I would love to be able to add more life style posts to this blog; it’s just the time needed to so that I need to find!

I’ve had this dress for a couple years now and this is the first time I’ve worn it. I don’t know why because seeing these pictures reminds me how much I loved this outfit and I just want to keep remixing it! I tend to collect thrifted items, even when I have no idea how to style them, but when I figure it out, even years later, I’ll live in the damn thing!

Other things, I keep for years, even when they are literally falling apart, wearing them day after day. Like this jacket; it almost looks like it’s intentional, the grunge look. Not so, this jacket has just been overworn and is showing its age. Despite the little faux leather flakes that follow me around when I wear it, I love it just as much as when it was new. It is the perfect amount of worn in, and I think the wear almost adds to the image.

I hope I’m not the only one who has strange shopping and clothing habits. You should share yours in the comments to make me feel less like a hoarder!

It’s May. Like, almost halfway through the year. What? Am I really getting to that age where time has started to go by so fast that each month I can’t believe it’s already a new month? The good news? We’re halfway to Christmas. YES, I am totally one of those people and I am totally not ashamed.

Another type of person I am? A Class Passer! I was debating signing up for the last month or so, and I pulled the trigger today! There’s nothing wrong with my regular gym (though, I did just type “there’s nothing fine”, so maybe subconsciously I’m not too happy with it!); but I am in love with pilates, barre classes, and Pop Physique and Class Pass allows me to take these type of classes whenever I want for less than a fraction of the cost! Win!

Does anyone else have Class Pass? How have you liked your experience?

I am all for comfort these days. Well, any days really. If I can throw something on and not have to be tugging on it all day, it gets priority in my closet! This Green Longsleeve Backless Casual Dress from Sheinside is just that and it’s perfection!  A breezy tee dress is all I need!
