Autumn Sun

Hey everyone! Hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends. 

I wanted to share with you a couple of my purchases that I got during the Black Friday shopping madness! 

Black Friday Deals:
Talula Military Jacket (10% off at Aritzia) 
Striped Abercrombie & Fitch Dress (40% off at A&F outlet)

From my closet:
Enzo Angiolini Boots
Thrifted Dooney & Burke Purse
Rayban Wayfarer Sunglasses

I literally wore this outfit the day after I bought them. The Abercrombie & Fitch dress works perfectly with the green military inspired jacket from Aritzia. Which were both great deals. The dress was originally $40 but I got it for $25! The jacket was on sale for $100, but it was well worth it because I will get a lot of uses from it.

I'll post some Holiday Outfit ideas soon!

Shine in Gold

Sorry for the limited outfit posts :(

But finally a new outfit post! Maybe I can provide you with some outfit inspiration for this holiday season!

The Thanksgiving holiday is fast approaching!!! Time to feast on turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, and pie <3 It's also a time where we can all get a little dressed up for the holiday season.

My family and I are still unsure of where we're going to go on Thanksgiving. Either going to a relatives house or we're just going to stay at home. Either way, I'll be with my family and that's all that matters.

I may not know where I'm going, but I do know what to wear.
An all gold ensemble!
I kinda feel like I look like wrapping paper.

Best part is, this outfit cost me less than $50! Of course this doesn't include the shoes. The top is from Forever21 only cost me $17 and the embellished gold filigree print skirt was a thrift store find at Crossroads Trading Co for only $8.50!!!

Top: Forever21
Skirt: Crossroads Trading Co
Tights: H&M
Heels: Calvin Klein

Happy Early Thanksgiving everyone!!! Be safe, be happy and get dressed up!
