I apologize for being so M.I.A. these past few days. I worked over the holiday weekend and then I came down with the stomach flu to end all stomach flus on Sunday. Matt & I even had to miss the Justin Timberlake concert that we had tickets for, because I've just been so miserably sick. I'm still fighting it pretty fiercely today :( I've been trying mass varieties of anti-nausea methods this whole week, sleeping as much as my body allows, and watching Christmas movies, as I try to wish away this illness. 'Tis the cold and flu season though, no?
This outfit for today is actually from a while back, but seeing as I'm feeling like poo, I needed to post a bright, cheerful outfit like this one :)
Happy Thanksgiving! Even though I haven't celebrated the holiday with actual turkey in over a decade, I'm always still pretty psyched for the family time & feast. Plus one of our best friend's from college, Jotir, is visiting from San Diego, and it's so fun to see him! My mama made all the traditional fare, but added in a vegan turkey roast for those of us non-meat-eaters. Mmmm.

These pieces of jewelry are by far some of my favorite new accessories that I own. They are so classic, but have a cute twist. (Seriously, how darling is that "A" ring?!)
Today's outfit is something I'd wear to a family Thanksgiving dinner since it's kind of conservative, yet fashion-y. (I won't lie to you though -- I intended to dress up all cute today, but I chose to stay in leggings and a sweatshirt for most of the day instead. Whoops. But it's okay though, because we were all pretty casual for the bigger part of the day :P) What did you wear for your Thanksgiving festivities? Are you going shopping on Black Friday?
Living in Phoenix, I don't get much of a chance to wear the fall staples we all know and love [you know, scarves, tights, flannels, boots, and the like]. When we visited Sedona the other week, I got the chance to bust out my fall favorites -- even a coat! Yeah, guys, an actualwintercoat (which I happen to be pretty infatuated with, seeing as it's the perfect mix of vintage-y & classic) in Arizona.
Side note: Right before these photos were taken, we had just finished a particularly long hike. Since we had already checked out of our hotel, I was forced to gypsy it by changing my clothes in the car and I had to go without any "sprucing up" ... or even showering (I apologize for the TMI). Oooh, the things bloggers will do for an outfit post and a pretty background, eh? ;)
I apologize for the mass amounts of photos, but this view in Sedona was waaay too pretty not to share (and share... and share).
Is it too cold now to wear fall fashions where you live? If so, do you have an adorable winter coat to keep warm in? As much as I enjoy a cute coat, I do not miss the extreme winter weather from back in the days when I lived in Ohio. Brrrr. I am freezing just thinking about it!
