After the holidays I always start getting in the mood for metallics, glitter, sequins, and deep warm bronze colors. Office parties, holiday parties and of course new years eve give me a great excuse to wear all of the above!

happy thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving all! Thanksgiving is just the start to my favorite time of year. Usually I enjoy hanging out with my family all day but this year will be a little tricky as my fiancé and I are going to both our families' Thanksgivings. I hope you all eat as much turkey and pumpkin pie as your stomachs can fit!

breaking winter

 The holidays are just around the corner and the temperature is starting to cool to below freezing. We don't have snow here yet in Chicago but I can feel that winter is about to break. I've been fighting pulling out my hat and gloves but I think I will need to succumb to the natural season change and embrace the weather. It's time for pumpkin spiced candles, hot cocoa, and a good book.

army green

Army green is not a new trend but continues to be prominent through every season. I really thought the color would die down eventually but instead it has become a staple in every wardrobe next to our blacks, greys, and whites. I own the matte green Ray Ban wayfarers pictured above and absolutely love them - highly suggest!

pantone: samba

I'm loving Pantone's Fall 2013 color palette, particularly Samba (19-1662 TPX). This beautiful rouge brings me into a perfect fall mood that will filter nicely into the holidays. It's a little more vibrant than last year's coveted ox blood red but I like the bright fierceness of the color. What fall colors are you wearing?
