thank you!


denim: anthropologie blouse: forever 21 boots: madewell zipcode (also here and here) sunglasses: ray ban clubmaster

i wore this outfit on thanksgiving, mainly because it was so dang comfortable (and this simple blouse is one of my favorites)! these photos were snapped outside of brian’s parents’ house down in socal (minus the bottom two that were taken at my mama’s house). we has lots of fun and interesting moments while visiting back home. it was so nice spending time with family, taking photos, and filling our bellies full of mashed potatoes, salad, stuffing, and all the other sides. yep, no turkey for us! it’s always great seeing family and old friends… they are hard to leave each time, but it’s always nice to be home in sf with our kitties.

now for the most important part of the post (i saved the best for last): i’m about to hit my one year blog anniversary in a few days and i have to say that it has been such a fun experience writing a blog, reading blogs, and being part of the blogging community. i have experienced such welcoming and wonderful feedback and comments from people and that means so much. in a world with so much negativity, it is so refreshing to have such a creative outlet with a positive community of writers and readers alike. i remember people used to say they loved blogging because they made friends through their blog and i thought okay “internet friends”. but it’s so true. sometimes when i’ve had a complete and total shit day it can really be turned around by reading a funny or inspiring blog post or by having conversations with other bloggers who enjoy sharing personal style, food, inspiration, and photography! so i want to say thank you to my readers! this may sound super cheesy but i’m truly grateful for those of you who have made this new experience of blogging a fantastic one. so in short, besides being thankful for my awesome husband and best friend brian, family (thanks moms for cooking yummy thanksgiving feasts! i love you both!!), and friends, i’m thankful for you, your feedback, and positivity. thank you! thank you! 🙂

p.s. i meant to post this on or before thanksgiving. sometimes even my best laid plans fall through. better late than never, right? haha. hearts!

  1. Your so darling! I love this outfit on you. I feel the same way about blogging and in a world where women intentionally hurt other women it is so refreshing and honest to share this positive outlet that we all have in common. I have loved getting to know you and catch up on what you have been up to. I have no doubt in my mind I will meet you someday. Keep blogging, it’s women like you who encourage me along the way too! 🙂 Happy 1 year!!!


    • thanks so much!!! so are you!!! it’s so true many times women do try to hurt one another and hate on each other which is so awful. we are fortunate to have friends that aren’t like that, whether it be in our everyday lives or in the blogging community. it’s been so awesome reading your blog and watching it grow! it’s very inspiring!!! 🙂 keep up all the hard work, girlie girl!

  2. Happy (belated) Thanksgiving and THANK YOU for sharing! I couldn’t agree more – blogging has become something I look forward to everyday; in fact, I may be mildly obsessed – but it wouldn’t be what it is without all of the amazing, inspiring, fashionable ladies out there, like you!

    ps. Love the outfit! 😉

    • i think i’m obsessed too! not only with my blog but with reading other blogs as well (i love yours)… i guess there are worse addictions. haha! thanks for the inspiration you give. 😀

    • thanks, girl!!! you’ve made my morning. i just blew it dry and then flat ironed it. i rarely use products because they tend to make my hair greasy. boo! do you use any hair products? some that you would recommend? perhaps, there’s something out there that i haven’t tried. 🙂
      oh and over the summer i picked up a chi flat iron and i think those work really well! i think that makes a huge difference too. 😀 hope all has been well with you! ❤

      • I try to use as little as possible too, always keep my “tips” moist with cream or conditioner to avoid split. There is only one principle in my routine: no silicone. I worked for our mothers and grandmas so it must be right 😀 I really love your new hair style though! It is so on the verge 60ies to 70ies!
