Today is Thanksgiving & it’s also my 30th birthday! So cheers to leaving my 20s and entering into my 30s! We’re celebrating in style too. We had friends over last weekend and did a blind champagne tasting (more details on that to come) and yesterday we took off and landed on Toronto for a long weekend away! Ethan and I have never been here before and it was on our list so I am so excited to explore. Today we grabbed coffee, did a little shopping, had a leisurely lunch and then actually just relaxed (something we almost neverrrr do on trips since we try to squeeze in tons of blogging too) so it was really nice. We did head downstairs and snap these pics before it got dark though. I plan to wear this to dinner tonight and I am really excited because Ethan picked a place and made some surprise reservations for us [how sweet, right?]. I wore this lace tunic last year for NYE and I thought it would be a good thing to pull back out for a celebratory dinner. I added my favorite new faux fur coat [on sale] and a hat and muff I have that were my grandmothers. I adore wearing things that are old and special so I knew this would be a great time to pull out these glamour items. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving day!
I couldn’t help it–truth be told–I actually purchased this faux fur number in July. And while it is still too hot here to wear it just yet, I don’t regret it! I cannot wait to throw it on this Winter to keep me warm. I think it’s so chic. I love the deep black color, the stitching of the structured square pattern, the slightly oversized fit and the open collar. Oh, and just one more thing—it is SO soft to the touch and very luxe! Totally timeless. [wearing a small]
Faux fur is only one of the huge trends that we will be seeing this Winter for coats. They all center around texture. Fun, right?! This is the most excited I have been for outerwear in years! The options are just SO good! I rounded up my favorites below since now is really the time to shop for one.
&& back to my outfit here for a quick second.. My sweater is a splurge, but it is on sale right now! Can you believe it’s 50% off?!? It’s a Vince cashmere so I know it was a good investment. Plus, you all know how I feel about black and grey! [wearing a small]
You are going to see sock booties everywhere this year. I looked high and low for a inexpensive pair to try out before I headed to NYC for fashion week and ended up landing on these. I love them! [I always size up a 1/2 at Forever21, wearing an 8]
I know it’s not fun to hear anyone complain…..but this has been the most Mondayest week. It has felt long and I feel like no matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to get ahead. But it’s nose to the grindstone for today, tonight and tomorrow and then it’s smooth sailing because we are heading to Chicago for the weekend with some of our best friends. I CANNOT wait. We have the architectural boat tour scheduled for Saturday morning and that’s it so far. Sooooo, if you all have any coffee/food/bar/shopping/photo spots that you know I would love will you send them my way?! I’d love it!
Let me know if you buy a coat! I will keep you updated on which one I pull the trigger on next!
