live like it's in style

Camo Jacket: vintage | Tank: Nordstrom | Beanie: Ebay

Sorry I haven't posted 'til now! As I've briefly mentioned in my previous post, I've been working a lot more so my schedule's a bit crazy right now. I had to work on Black Friday, which was pretty hectic, but I'm glad that day is over!

 Sported this vibrant red beanie with my oversized camo jacket on Thanksgiving Eve. This getup definitely brings out the New Yorker in me.

holiday cheer

Cardigan: Topshop | Dress: Lush | Necklace: Forever 21 | Bag: Coach (vintage)

It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas! Went for a session of retail therapy with my mom at The District  on my day off, and to my surprise, they already had Christmas decorations up! It looks so pretty during the day that I'm sure during the night it looks even prettier when all the lights are on.

Also, due to the holiday season, I've been working a lot more than usual, hence, the slow updates, but I'll make sure to squeeze in time for the blog! By the way, can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a few days away?! I feel like the holidays came by so fast this year, but I definitely couldn't be more excited!

Happy Monday, everyone!

mixed prints

Shirt: United Colors of Benetton | Shorts: Banana Republic (vintage) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Beanie: F21

Had a little too much fun mixing prints. Took these photos a few days ago when the weather was still nice and warm. You'll definitely catch me wearing beanies more frequently; just yesterday the temperature dropped about 20 degrees! It's finally time to whip out the sweaters, hoodies, and chunky accessories!

Also, I seriously can't believe that the holidays are almost here; it feels like it came by so fast this year! I got a jumpstart on my Christmas shopping and I can't wait to start sending out gifts! What are some things on your Christmas list?

Hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend!

wild thing

Dress: Urban Outfitters | Boots: DV by Dolce Vita | Clutch: Vintage

This stunning dress from Urban Outfitters easily became one of my absolute favorite things to wear. Definitely love at first sight when I picked this up a few months back during my brief trip in LA.

bargain hunter

Top: Asos | Skirt: Banana Republic (vintage) | Bag: Vintage (available here) | Booties: DV by Dolce Vita | Sunglasses: F21 Men's

When it comes to shopping, I always hunt for the best bargains. I personally believe that you don't need to break the bank to create an affordable, yet trendy and stylish look. 

I purchased this Asos button up shirt a while back for its price and of course, I loved it for its gold buttons and fishtail cut. Because the fit is a bit baggier than I hoped, I paired it with this mini skirt and booties for a more feminine look. Couldn't resist sporting a chunky knit beanie as it just so happens to be one of my favorite things to wear during the fall/winter and it seemed only appropriate to throw on, as I'm still very much looking forward to the day when I can finally wear layers and scarves on a regular basis.

What're some of your favorite fall/winter pieces? Share!

 Vest: Vintage | Skirt: Vintage | Necklace: F21 | Bag: Fendi (vintage) | Flower headpiece: Handmade | Beaded Headpiece: Urban Outfitters

Normally, I don't wear long skirts because I always feel like it makes me look super short. BUT, I simply couldn't resist this maxi skirt; totally diggin' the all-over floral print with the subtle slit on the left. It's definitely a great statement piece that can be worn in the summer and in the fall. Paired it with a plain black tank and this cozy, vintage cream crochet vest. Also, I felt like wearing a headpiece with this look, but I couldn't decide which one looked better, so I just wore both of them! The more accessories the better, right? ;) 

By the way I'm soooo glad it's the weekend! Aren't you!? 
Happy weekend, everyone!
