Happy Turkey Day 2014

Happy Thanksgiving! I always look forward to Thanksgiving, not only because of the delicious food, but because it gives you an opportunity to really tell everyone how thankful you are to have them in your life. It's a great day to reflect on the wonderful things that you are blessed with and the people who help you through it all. 
I am extremely lucky to have amazing parents and friends and a good education. Not everyone in the world has those luxuries. I'm also thankful for those of you who read my blog and watch my videos! It's so neat to see people who like what I'm doing. So anyways, I just wanted to do a short little post saying thank you, and also to remind you of what Thanksgiving is really about. It's not all about the turkey and stuffing, but also about being thankful of your life right now, even if it's tough, you have to stay positive. Take risks, enjoy life, and surround yourself with people who make you a better you. 
Have a fabulous Thanksgiving and make sure to wear clothes that can stretch if you know you'll be eating a lot haha! Trust me.

Don't forget to tell you're friends and family how thankful you are to have them in your life! One day they might not be there anymore so don't waste any second! Let them know how much they're appreciated! 

Oh and here's a little vlog of my Thanksgiving morning haha!

Movie Theater and Burgers

Funny thing about going to the movie theater, I never want to go but once I do, I usually end up really enjoying it! Maybe it's because I'd rather be active and doing something instead of just sitting and staring at a screen, but when I actually decide to go, I have a few outfit guidelines. I'm always cold in the movie theater, I don't know if it's just me or if having the air conditioning on high is just a thing, so I like to wear a sweater or bring a light jacket. I also like to wear jeans to keep my legs warm. Overall, I tend to wear clothes that are comfortable and warm. So here's a video of my most recent trip to the movies along with my outfit AND burgers because I love burgers. Have a fabulous day!

DIY No-Sew Fall Shawl

Wearing new outerwear is one of my MOST FAVORITE parts of fall and winter! I love wearing everything from leather jackets and cardigans, to capes and coats. I am always in need of new pieces to wear in autumn, so I came up with this easy cardigan/ shawl and there's no sewing involved! I love how put together and effortless it looks, it will definitely be put to use this season! Anyways, hope you enjoy and have a fabulous day!

Autumn means cooler weather, warm drinks, sweaters, boots, and everything cozy. One thing I love in the fall would be picnics. There's just something about spending time outside with a little food and a cute outfit, of course. For my outfit, I am wearing a navy and white striped sweater, which is actually my mom's shhh... I chose to pair this orange jersey scarf with the sweater because it was a solid color so as not to distract from the stripes, and it also contrasted well with the navy blue. Jeans were a must, and I wore a pair of leopard print flats to add some dressiness. I would describe this outfit as classy and casual. Each piece of the outfit compliments another, and I loved mixing stripes and leopard print.

How has your fall been so far? What are your favorite fall activities? Let me know and have a fabulous day!

Let's Eat Greek

combat boots and jeans

green lace crop top and high waisted jeans

Traveling is something I definitely want to do after I graduate high school and college. I'd absolutely LOVE to go to Greece. But for now, the closest substitute is to go out to my local Greek restaurant and order some chicken souvlaki. Good enough right? So for my lunch outfit, I decided to wear a green lace shirt from Macy's and my high waisted jeans from Aeropostale because the shirt is actually cropped. I paired it with a geometric print pom pom scarf, also from Aeropostale, and my black combat boots from Target (be prepared to see these boots in a lot of my posts as the weather cools down). My three bracelets are made by me, and they make the outfit a little more casual and bohemian, rather than edgy (which could be done by adding some metal accents like a silver cuff bracelet). This could be worn as a traveling outfit, or a lunch date ensemble as I did. It's nice to wear for cool weather, but if you have actual cold weather, I'd suggest a jacket because I was kinda chilly. Anyways, have a fabulous first day of November!
