Spiked Cider

Cinnamon schnapps, cinnamon sticks, and warm apple cider? What’s not to love about this fall cocktail courtesy of one of my go-to books, Party Drinks!? I highly suggest this spiced treat this time of year, preferably while wearing similar attire.

Knits & Owls

This pullover was actually the best investment ever. Anthropologie really should have warned me to get one in every color, because they are the perfect fix to these strange spring Mother-Nature-Can’t-Make-Up-Her-Mind days.

Meant To Be

Once upon a time, there was an affair that brought maidens from all over to an enchanted land…

The Anthropologie 50% Off Sale.

And in a dark corner in that crowded sale room, I found one single pair of my long-lusted-after Bowed Lacerta Mary Janes.

And I just couldn’t say no. We are now living happily ever after.

Cue typical day-before-Thanksgiving post.

But in all seriousness, I have a lot to be thankful for.

I’ll keep it short and sweet. I feel so lucky everyday for my supportive family, near and far. For my friends, old and new. For CEM II, who can brighten my day in a second.

For dance, for a job I love, for the blogging community. For cakepops, sequins, bows, chai tea lattes, pink, Pinterest, and parades.

Wishing everyone a very happy, safe, and filling Thanksgiving tomorrow. I’ll be back on Monday :)

Butterfly Kisses

I have a new love.

The Lepidoptera Dress.

This is an interesting one though. It didn’t hit stores until late summer, and even though it is full of some gorgeous fall hues, I knew I wasn’t going to be warm wearing just it throughout fall.

Enter some cozy scuffed boots and  a pullover burnt orange sweater with an extra 30% off courtesy of a couple thread pulls I located. Now we’re in business for 50-degree Beantown.

Purse ‘n Boots

Linking up with the loveliest {av} again for my second Friday’s Fancies!

This week’s theme: Crazy about Boots

Crazy for Boots!

Halima Riding Boot, Lauren by Ralph Lauren, originally $198
Tangerine Flicker Dress, Anthropologie, $358
Deux Lux Snake Chain Crossbody Bag, Urban Outfitters, $49
Jezebel Bronze Butterfly Necklace, CatBird, $220 (fifty percent of proceeds go to charity)

I cannot get this burnt orange color out of my head this fall! I’ve never craved orange, but lately I can’t get enough of it. I actually own those Lauren by Ralph Lauren boots (and I am crazy about them– took me forever to find the perfect pair but I finally did last winter), and I love pairing them with this tangerine shade.

And in the spirit of this beautiful pair of brown and orange, check out this photo my godmother snapped from her back porch of a sunrise this week:

Happy Friday everyone! Have a lovely fall weekend!
