This fall has been all about faux fur and it’s a great transition into winter, as well! I’ve always like fur, but it hasn’t always been in style. About three years ago, I purchased a black fur vest from New York and Company, wore it for a season and then BAM – fur is out. This is why I’m a clothes hoarder – trends come and go too quickly. I still have my black vest and now, I’ve added this brown vest from Forever 21 to my wardrobe, too!
I scored this floppy felt hat at the DSW sample sale – $1 – HOLLA! It was probably my favorite find from this year. It’s the cherry on top to the outfit, if you will.
The horizontal strips on my top paired nicely with the horizontal stripes on my vest. I completed my look with a statement necklace, jeggings and over the knee boots for extra warmth (You can still see snow in the background. I mean, it’s Ohio, so it was warm this day, but not THAT warm..).
What are some of your favorite bohemian looks?
There is so much to give thanks for this year! Not to start off on the dark side, but I’ve always been thankful for having all 4 of my grandparents until I was 24. I have a special bond with all of them. This year, I’m thankful for the times I get to spend with my Grandpa, esp after my grandmother passed. He lives in Virginia Beach. Ever since I was younger, I started calling him Bumpy and called my grandma, Bada. The start of Bada of Bumpy began – and the nicknames stuck with everyone!
When I picked him up from the airport, I brought him to my neck of the woods – Short North – and we hit up The Pearl’s happy hour – beers and oysters. SO DELICIOUS!
I even sweet talked my Bumpy into taking my blog pictures for me. He’s really into photography – normally birds – so I think taking photos of an actual human was a new experience for him.
As I picked out my Thanksgiving attire – comfort was my number one goal. This oversized varsity sweater has been my go to this fall. I first fell in love with it when it was the cover photo on Cosmo’s Sept edition. When I found it a few weeks later on Francesca’s website, I scooped it up. I paired it with a Chambray shirt for extra warmth (the sweater is more thin than I would have wanted). These camo pants were a no brainer because who isn’t thankful for the brave men defending our company. I am very thankful to live in America. Land of the great! I kept it basic with these cognac flats.
My family has all of the food covered this year, so I was in charge of table decorations. I used a lot of leaves, candles, mesh, pumpkins, and GLITTER. I also took to pinterest to learn about napkin folding. I’ve impressed myself.
What are you most thankful for this year?
Would you believe me if I told you my dress cost less than these shoes??! Well, that’s a fact, believe it or not!
Thanks to Francesca’s and their amazing FLASH SALE, I scored this dress for only $29.99! I couldn’t wait to receive it in the mail, and it came just in time to wear to a friend’s wedding. It was an outdoor wedding, but the dress was a little heavier so I wasn’t cold like I anticipated – oh, listen to me, “Cold” in August?? I know it’s 93 degrees this weekend, but a few weekends ago, it was down in the 50’s…. are other states feeling these temps??
I loved the fit and flare of this dress! Not to mention, it was easy to dance in – I was the one who requested B.Spears ten times, you’re welcome, wedding guests! Because of the floral texture and the beaded waistband, jewelry wasn’t really an option with this. Sometimes, less is more and that was the case for this dress. If I wore silver jewelry, I would have paired it he dress with some silver bracelets for some extra Bling! But these BCBG suede dorry heels took care of that extra Bling for me! Talk about “W-O-W” Best part is they were soft suede so I was actually comfortable all night for my first time wearing them.
DId I mention the best part?! Francesca’s is having 30% off right now on dresses. Score this Jun and Ivy Embellished Floral dress for 30% off (Regular $118). I have to say that buying this dress during their flash sale was one of my best bargains yet….. Ain’t that the truth!!!
