Favorite Fashion Friday #74

 photo FavoriteFashionFridaylogo_zpsf66ade9e.jpg


Last week Meagan, of Meagan's Moda, rocked a look that I can only describe as Reindeer Chic.  I never knew a reindeer tee could look so sophisticated.  It certainly didn't when I wore mine.  If only I had known, reindeer tee + blanket scarf + camel blazer = pure brilliance.

Favorite Fashion Friday #73

As soon as I came across Crissy's outfit at Some Velvet Morning, I knew it would be the one I featured this week.  She is so quirky and fun, and her photo shoot in this post is everything.  You really need to click over to see it.  I will just say this: she has giant balls.

Super Trooper

puff trooper hat: c/o Callanan
sweater: exact
jeans: exact
jacket: exact
booties: c/o chicwish | similar
___________________________


Given that most of the country is already in the midst of winter weather (NJ included!), I realize that photos of me wearing just a sweater and a denim jacket look preposterous.  I agree.  But I took these before Thanksgiving, when it was actually still fall during fall (and not this winter-during-fall we're currently experiencing).  And good thing.  Because almost right on cue, I got sick as soon as I got back home.  And I'm pretty sure standing outside in the snow without a coat taking outfit photos is not what you'd call a formula for getting well soon.

Luckily, I have this cozy Callanan Trooper hat lined with fleece and faux fur to keep me warm.  It looked good when I wore it with my jean jacket the other day, but right now it looks especially chic paired with my pajamas and ever-present box of tissues.

Favorite Fashion Friday #72

Hi, guys!  I'm back from my trip just in time for Favorite Fashion Friday.  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving full of delicious food, lots of laughs, and all the family dysfunction you'd expect when  relatives gather to share a meal.   

My favorite this week comes from Liz at Sprinkles + Sequins.  Her outfit is so cool I can't even stand it.  I mean, maroon coated skinnys and a bad ass (p)leather jacket.  I'm just going to file this one as an urgent note to self: find maroon coated skinny jeans, like right now.

Give Thanks

Because this is obviously the day we honor our sexy pilgrim ancestors who fled from Native Americans in their stockings and high heels.


Per tradition, I'm making my annual "pilgrimage" to Florida to spend the next few days basking in the sun and generally trying to forget that I live in a cold climate.

In the interest of brevity (and so I don't sound like a broken record year after year), I will refer you to this post and this post, which really do a nice job summing up some of the more important aspects of life I'm thankful for.  But I'd be remiss to let a Thanksgiving pass by without mentioning a few new ones (or at least some of the same ones that bear repeating).  I am indescribably grateful for my family and friends, all of you wonderful readers out there, 21 Jump Street - the movie not the show, and this awesome veggie meatloaf recipe, which by the way, is a damn delicious alternative to turkey.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

DIY Vintage Infinity Scarf

A few years ago I inherited a whole bunch of beautiful vintage scarves and kerchiefs from my grandma.  (She was a stylish lady, that one - had an entire dresser drawer full of them, I kid you not).  I made this one out of two of my favorites and it's been a staple in my wardrobe ever since.  I love wearing it - it's light and airy and one-of-a-kind, and can even fool you into thinking that a tank top and jorts look kind of fancy.

Lately I've gotten so many compliments on it that I thought it might be time to share the secret of its construction with you.  Note: that was sarcastic.  This DIY is so ridiculously easy I almost feel silly explaining it.

1. Gather your supplies.  You'll need just 3 things:
  • sewing apparatus (machine or manual)
  • pins
  • at least 2 scarves/kerchiefs you want to use (the more you use, the longer your scarf will be).  If they're the same width at the ends, great!  If not, don't worry.  I promise you won't see it in the end.
(1 ½.) As you can see, these two are different widths. That's ok.  By definition infinity scarves are bunched and folded and messy and therefore wonderful at hiding flaws and imperfections.  No one will notice*.
2. Line the ends of the scarves up together with the outsides facing in.  If one is shorter than the other, just try to center it as well as possible.
3. Pin the scarves together so they don't wiggle around when you sew them.
4. Sew the ends together.  Repeat the same process for the other side.  Voila.  Your two scarves have just become one.
5. Loop it around your neck and rock it. 



*Unless you completely forget to make any attempt to hide those flaws....like all of the white stitching you just did, for instance.


Linking up with these ladies.

I'm pretty sure every year around this time I start complaining about how the cold weather and end of daylight savings make taking good outfit photos just that much harder.  So this year I'll spare you the spiel, and just say that I didn't take any outfit photos this week or last.  But I found these ones from back in April that I never posted for some reason, and figured that what I wore when it was chilly then looks kind of like something I'd wear for when it's chilly now.  And my guess is that if I didn't tell you these were from over half a year ago, you probably wouldn't have guessed it, anyway. I'm tricky like that.



p.s. - partying here today
