drink small

I know that today is Shop Small Saturday, 
and I meant to go to my local thrift store,
 but we ended up going to the local Goodwill & drinking small at Kane Brewing in Ocean, NJ
with my baby Rebecca Minkoff of course!

What I Wore: glasses- c/o Coastal, necklace- Love Always, undershirt- thrifted, sweater- Forever 21, pants- H&M, flats- Old Navy, bag- Rebecca Minkoff

Scored a few things at the good ol' Goodwill!
Love this horse race blouse, giraffe top, and neon overnight bag! {for $13!}

My sister also scored this beautiful tapestry bag & amazing jewelry box {both for $30!}

Also loved these boots but decided to pass since they were cracked in the back...

In light of Shop Small Saturday, 
here is the first item for my online shop that will launch in Spring! 
Love this stripped blouse with fun duck print, and 3/4 button ruffle front!
I will keep you posted on progress of my shop,
 but this has been a dream of mine {one day will also be a brick & mortar shop} 
 I am excited to get started!
Hope you are all onboard!

my black friday

I am a daily shopper {as you probably have figured out}
So I am not big on Black Friday- there is nothing worth getting punched in the face for, 
I shopped from the comfort of my own Nonna's house

Picked up a few Christmas presents for my hubby & sister {surprises obviously!}
But I did have to get these for myself!
Loly in the sky Sonia loafers for 20% off! 
yes! finally!

So I didn't formally shop- but I did find this sweater at Nonna's house & she let me have it!

What I Wore: glasses- c/o Coastal, necklace- Love Always, sweater- found at Nonna's house! {H&M}, pants- Target, flats- Hopes

first frost!

& outtakes courtsey of mom
perfect for Blogger Bloopers {especially love Glitter and Gingham's Bloopers posts!}

Sleeping pug who makes a pillow out of his own face fat...

Not a holiday without a pug in a big pot!

What did you score on black friday?! 
I am enjoying my free sweater!

Smile, it is Thanksgiving!

While you are reading this I will be on my way to NY to visit my family, 
I will finish out camo to work Look 3 on Monday! 

This look is from last weekend when we went to visit my sister in Delaware!
road trip time!
I love these potato chips {& I am not usually a fan of potato chips}
& puppy cuddles during car rides!

& we arrived to my sisters super cute apartment! 
love her shower curtain 
{yes she is a chemist!}

& we got a tour of her apartment building, 
which used to be an old bank! 
The little details were awesome- including vaults, patterned ceilings and wall safes!

 What I Wore: glasses- BonLook, top & necklace- Isabel Marant pour H&M, jeans- Target, flats & phone case- Forever 21

My sister has the perfect mirror/lighting for outfit pictures!

I am so happy that the "Smile" kids sweater from the Isabel Marant pour H&M fits! 
& it wasn't even the biggest kids size! & $20 cheaper than the top I wanted #smallpeoplescore

We ate dinner at Doc Magrogans in West Chester, PA.
honestly best lobster I have had in a long time {maybe forever}
hint of Old Bay spice, juicy & delicious!

Then we went to check out Victory Brewing Company,

Such a fun get-a-way!

Happy Thanksgiving, 
Enjoy your family & friends!

camo from weekend to workweek

I picked up these pastel blue camo pants from the gap 
& have been obsessed with them ever since!
For the next three days I will be outlining how surprisingly versatile these are!

First of all, I am enjoying the camo trend but it is not always practical for work, 
hence this outfit for a weekend:
{See this outfit's details here!}

So how exactly can you rock some camo at work? 
Here is look 1!

 What I Wore: glasses- Kensie, sweater- thrifted, necklace- c/o Luxe Craving, pants- Gap, loafers- Sam & Libby for Target

Another way to incorporate camo into your work wardrobe is this AMAZING
Valentino Rockstud Denim Camouflage Shopper Tote!
If you can afford the $1995 price tag- this is a surefire way to enjoy this trend in a beautiful way!
