Maison Kitsune Embroidered Fox Sweatshirt

My sister came to visit me last weekend. I love when she’s in town — she lives on the other side of the coast so we don’t see each other very often. Other than the awesome fact that she’s here, I also love that we get to borrow each other’s clothes for a bit, something that we haven’t done regularly since I was in high school. I’ve had my eye on her Maison Kitsune embroidered fox sweatshirt, so of course I jumped at her suggestion that I wear it for a blog post. I also tried to convince my sister to relinquish said sweatshirt to me, but this effort was rather unsuccessful (even when I attempted to make a barter). Well I guess I’ll just have to be happy borrowing it, since this sweatshirt is sold out everywhere.

By the way, all the jewelry I’m wearing on this post, I got from the jewelry subscription service Rocksbox. If you guys are loving the pieces, you can try it out yourself for free. Yep, you read that right, you can try out the super gorgeous Illumina bib necklace for free courtesy of Rocksbox jewelry subscription service.

sleeveless trench

It seems my days of wearing this sleeveless trench without an outer layer are over (insert sad face) the temps here in Minne have dropped to the high 30s and low 20s which means it is just a matter of time before we get our first snow. Can’t say if I’m happy about the change in weather or not BUT I’m excited for Thanksgiving aka fat kid day this week!

Cropped Short

November 20, 2015

Metal Trim Fedora Hat

Yup, you are seeing it correctly: I decided to chop off most of my hair! Not sure what possessed me to do it — probably boredom. I always switch between long dramatic short and long. I get bored of my long hair, so I chop it off. Not long after that, I usually get sort of sad because I realize that you can’t do bun or crown braid hairstyle with super short hair, so I’ll grow it back out. Because of this, I figured that winter is the best time to have short hair. In the cold winter weather, you usually wear hats to keep warm, so you can’t have crown braids (and will probably have to fix your hair anyway).

In a semi-related blog note, I am totally obsessed with these sorel boots. They’re perfect for keeping your leg toasty warm in the winter (I didn’t even need to wear tights) and they’re super comfortable so you can walk for miles in them.

I’m adjusting to the cooler temperatures. Minne has had an unusually warm autumn and I’ve been loving it BUT like all good things this perfect weather wasn’t meant to last… time to bust out the chunky knits and jackets.

Have a wonderful week!

Camo Freak of Nature

November 12, 2015

Nasty Gal Boot Camp Jacket

This is it folks, prepare for the end of the world, global warming is here! AAAAACCKKK!

Just kidding! Sort of… Weird weather patterns like we had in New York last week just always skeeves me out. It’s November and the thick fleece-lined jacket is tucked safely in my coat closet — the weather is still way too warm for it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice and all. But freakishly warm weather, combined with global warming warnings that’s going around, has got your girl all paranoid that I should be prepping for the inevitable. Well at least I’m covered from a fashion perspective. All thanks to my Nasty Gal Boot Camp jacket, which has adjustable rolled up sleeves and back slit that accommodate multiple temperature and weather changes. Not only is it awesome since you can wear more of it throughout the year, there’s another bonus point: camo goes with pretty much any color. So this jacket truly is a versatile wear.

Welp, the weather is cooling down more now, so I guess I’ll stop freaking out. But seriously people, we should do more stuff to reduce our carbon footprint and help mother earth. Because I don’t think I’m rich enough to afford a ticket on noah’s arc ☺.

That Chunky Sweater Dress

November 5, 2015

H&M sweater dress

Sometimes a shapeless chunky sweater dress can be the chicest thing ever, especially when paired with high heel hiking boots. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got no problem with the “no pain no gain” attitude when it comes to fashion. Many times I’ve had to spend all day sucking my stomach in a body con dress, or patching my poor foot in bandages so it can last a few more hours in the sky high stilettos. But days like today I’m thankful to be looking good in something warm, cozy and comfortable. And on top of that since there’s a lot of “room” in the dress, I can enjoy a big lunch and look ever as chic afterwards.

Oh So Fuzzy

Black Swan Womens North Fur Vest

If you guys are like me, you get overly excited and buy a lot of your winter and fall gear before the weather even gets cold. Then you wait in anticipation for the temperature to drop so you can pack on the layers. If you’re terrible like me, sometimes you might also forget that cold weather gear you got more than a month ago (does this mean I have too many clothes?). “Found” clothes like this are a good thing on my book, because it gives me the feeling that you got new clothes for free.
