Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello! Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you guys all enjoy today and are able to spend time with your friends, family and all the other people that you are thankful for.

For today's look, I slipped a knit cream sweater over a black bralette. I layered a dark green checked button down over the knit sweater and layered a vintage, tan jacket over top of that. I love how the different textures and neutral colors of all of the tops look layered together.

I styled my black skirt from Skirt the Issue with the look. I received this skirt about a month ago and have been in love with it ever since. The classic shape and color make this the perfect skirt to style with numerous, different looks. Not to mention the fact that it's also incredibly comfortable. If you are looking for a versatile skirt to add to your wardrobe, I would definitely recommend checking out Skirt the Issue's selection of skirts. All skirts retail for $30 each.

On a related note, I recently started working as an intern for Skirt the Issue mainly working with the online and social media aspects of the company. I feel so lucky to be working as an intern for Skirt the Issue and really love the company that I'm working for. Working in social media/PR after I graduate from school would be a dream so I'm very grateful for the experience that I'm gaining from this position. Be sure to check Skirt the Issue out on social media (Twitter, Facebook & Instagram) to keep up with my work for Skirt the Issue.

Rainy Days

Hello! The weather is cold and rainy here today and I have little motivation to leave my bed. I took these photos earlier in the day when there was a lull in the rain. While taking these photos, the cutest black cat decided to join in as you can tell from the second photo above. 

For me, rainy weather is sweater weather so I slipped into a burgundy sweater today. The oversize shape, burgundy color and bohemian, free-spirited vibe of this sweater make it my favorite sweater in my wardrobe. I haven't worn this sweater in a while and the second that I pulled this sweater on, I remembered all the reasons why this is one of my favorite sweaters. I would spend everyday in this sweater if it was socially acceptable. 

I paired the burgundy sweater with a classic pair of black denim. I love the way that these pants accentuate my legs. Black cut-out booties accompanied the burgundy sweater and black denim. I accessorized with a couple golden necklaces and a small golden bag. 

Hope that you guys are enjoying your Thanksgiving break so far!

Hello Richmond

Hello! I just arrived in Richmond last night for Thanksgiving break; I'm extremely grateful for the break from Philadelphia and all my school work even though it's just a week-long break. And nothing's better than being home and being able to cuddle up with my Yorkie, Bella.

For my look today, I slipped into a simple teal dress. I purchased this teal dress from Forever 21 for less than $20 about a month ago and am very satisfied with my purchase. The deep teal color and flattering shape of this dress are irresistable. I kept my look relatively simple today and styled a black pair of tights, vintage loafers and an infinity scarf with the dress.
