“Give thanks with a grateful heart.”

Happy Humpday, everyone!  Can you believe that tomorrow is Thanksgiving already? Seriously, where did the year go?!

I wanted to share a quick, little post before the Thanksgiving holiday starts.  I’m sure many of us are looking forward to the holiday weekend and spending time with our loved ones (that would be ME!).  This year, I have plenty of things to be thankful for. With all that’s happening in the world today,  I’ve learned to appreciate what I have and what God has blessed me with: the big things and the little things.  Growing up, my parents would always remind my sister and I that “there’s someone out there that is happy with less than what you have…” and it taught me how to be grateful.  Thanksgiving isn’t about the turkey and the Black Friday deals.  Spend this time with your loved ones, count your blessings, and be thankful with a grateful heart (everyday).

We are only a few days shy from December and I honestly can’t believe that it’s almost been a year since I started blogging.  Just wanted to let you guys know that I am thankful for all of you for reading my posts and for following along!  Love you guys!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones ❤

P.S. Wearing one sweater = two looks! Enjoy!

“#CoachFall2015 event”

Happy FriYAY, everyone!  Here’s a little recap of the Coach soft opening that I hosted a week ago in conjunction with another event, Cocktails and Couture at Westfield Valley Fair Mall. This so far, is a pretty significant highlight of my blogging career!  I have only been blogging for less than a year, and to have been able to do such a thing for a designer brand is truly awe-inspiring.  I am beyond the bounds GRATEFUL for this opportunity and I would also like to thank everyone, especially the ones closest to my heart for making the night enjoyable! ❤

I wish I could’ve taken more photos!  I guess you could say I was having too much fun! Thank goodness my sister, Gladys was around to help me snap a few here and there. Coats, shoes, jewelry and bags galore in the bigger and better location.  Coach now has an edgier, more streetwise spin on their classic label thanks to their new creative director, Stuart Vevers.  Start googling his resume.  You’re welcome. 🙂 Their ready-to-wear collection for Fall 2015 is full of city-country vibes (leather meets sheepskin) and coats that are cozy + cool.  Can I please have one of everything?  Le sigh. #wishfulthinking

Thank you, Coach for the cutest bag that is never leaving my shoulder this season.  It is perfect!  Again, thank you guys for supporting what I love to do and I appreciate each and every one of you.  Love you guys! ❤

P.S. I’ve also picked out some of my personal faves below just in time for gifting season and they are all under $125!  Have a fabulous weekend and happy shopping!

 

 

“Fancy Pants.”

Leather skinnies are always a hit in every cool girls’ wardrobe, but right now, my season favorite is the leather jogger.  Low-slung and slouchy, (just like boyfriend jeans) it’s very menswear chic and completely desirable – these beauties are a combination of androgyny and comfort.  YAS!  No wonder the sweatpants trend is socially-acceptable as streetwear these days.  Whether dressed up with pointy pumps or dressed down with flats or sneakers, this comfy trend will keep you looking chic when paired with the right pieces!  I wanted to keep the “tomboy, but girly” look flow going, so I wore a baggy sheer paneled shirt with a racerback bralette.  Tip for wearing a sheer top: If possible, wear something in a color that either creates contrast or complements the color of your sheer top. This way, your undergarment will look like an intentional part of the outfit. 🙂

Hope you guys are having a fabulous Monday and remember to be amazing today!  My fancy pants and I are ready to take on the world, but first, coffee. ❤
