Black, White and an Off-Yellow

 This sweater I recently bought from Ross, and I am IN LOVE it is so SO soft and lamby. Perfect for this winter!
shirt- h+m // sweater- Ross // jeans- IZod (thrifted and up-cycled) // shoes- thrifted // earrings - handmade // belt- Target

I just love dressing all slouchy, big and baggy loose and lovely is such a fantastic trend that I'm loving. Who cares about shape? It's no longer about having a tiny waist and luscious curves... It's all about being comfortable and feeling good in my book. 
And I for one, feel great.
Especially with my new cut!

It's Winter, It Really Is....

 Wowy... It has been sooo cold these past few weeks. I love winter, but I hate the cold when you're standing outside the car waiting for the driver to unlock the passenger doors as you shiver. Or when you think that wearing leggings underneath your jeans is a good idea to say warm, when in reality, the blood flow has stopped in your legs, it's uncomfortable, and you still aren't warm... 

Luckily! Today was a bit more warm, well not exactly warm just not freezing. Which I guess is a little treat before we go to Colorado and freeze our little tails off in the mountains over Thanksgiving...

Are you just in love with this ring?! Or is that just me...
My mom gave it to me as a gift, she got it from Etsy! Monica Retana makes the best jewlery if you are into making a statement. Check her out!

Happy Monday :)

Words With Sunday + Chapter 33


To finish off my extremely busy weekend of birthday parties and fashion shows (posts coming soon) ... we ate close to home for brunch, a place called Azzuros. Having been there for dinner many times and loooovvvving their classic Italian, we were excited to try it for brunch! Unfortunatly... it's really a dinner place, brunch wasn't that spectacular. Saunders and I had a tough time deciding what to order, simply because there was so few that was appealing! 
If you're thinking about going to Azzuros, dinner or lunch is the time!

I ended up getting a margarita pizza, only because it's all I knew was good, and weirdly was on the brunch menu... However, Papa did enjoy his eggs benedict, Saunders said his pancakes were "okay"
 This is one of my FAVORITE thrift finds, this midi dress is timeless, its flowey-flounceyness and deep colors make it perfect for fall. It is so light weight and still a statement! One of my favorites in my closet by far...
 These shoes my mother and grandmother bought for me at a local thrift store. Not typically something that I would pick out, but their metallic snakeskin print is TDF! Plus, since they are lace up, like most heals-- you don't have to worry about your heels slipping out or clenching your toes when you walk, they are a perfect fit!
 Oh and hey... I chopped off all my hair!
A post about that coming soon!!
 dress- vintage thrifted // shoes - bcbg // belt - forever 21 // purse - Ashby's

My mom thinks that beanies make me look like a cat burglar... mmkay thanks mama.

Mondays Aren't Bad... You Just Hate Your Job

I'll admit, nobody enjoys going back to the daily grind of work or school after a fun relaxing weekend. But during the summer or on a break, Monday is just another day. I think that we need to start to love Mondays and all the greatness they bring us. A new week brings us new challenges and tasks to take on! Woohoo! 
Boyfriend jeans plus sequins equal true slouchy fabulousness!!
What do you love about Mondays?
