26 Oct

On my fall/winter shopping list this year is a camel colored coat.  The color goes with pretty much anything and is a nice break from the black and grays of the season. Here are a few that I would love to get my hands on.


Wilfred Cashmere Cocoon Coat @ Aritzia

Chalayan Scarfneck Blouson Jacket @ SSense

Double Breasted Coat @ Victoria’s Secret


Maybe I’ll be able to find one that is a combination of all 3 styles.

BBQ Pork Sandwiches

25 Oct

I had some friends over for dinner last week and decided to try out a new recipe!  I made BBQ pulled pork sandwiches but I was a little skeptical of the recipe because it seemed waaaay too easy!  Never the less, I followed this recipe here and dinner was DELICIOUS!



There are a bunch of suggestions on the recipe page but I was really lazy and stuck pretty close to the original recipe, the only thing I did different was I added sliced onions and sauteed them in the dutch oven before I shredded the pork and added it to the oven.  I also used Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce (according to some reviews the BBQ sauce is too sweet so I mixed in a little bit of white vinegar to the sauce before mixing it with the pork and onions). For sides we had sweet potato fries and apple/pear coleslaw.  Bon appetit!

Venus Fly Trap

21 Oct

I am super excited!  J bought me a Venus Fly Trap plant yesterday. I’ve been wanting one of these for the longest time…



Now I just have to sit around and wait for some little bugs.  Let’s hope I don’t kill this plant like I have my cactus, pin cushion plant and tater pots.

Today I am feeling a little grandma/grandpa-ish.

peter pan blouse (Free People)
jeggings (Forever21)
boots (Steve Madden)
I love the elbow patches on the grandpa sweater and the collar on my blouse.  They are such fun little details.

A tweed blazer somehow always makes me feel a little more scholarly.  Here is one of my transition outfits for this season.  The tights gave me a little bit of warmth but the weather wasn’t too cool yet that shorts were out of the question and the scarf gave the outfit a splash of color since I’m not quite ready to let go of summer…

Teenage Dream

12 Oct

Long gone are the days of walking down the hallways of my old high school gossiping with girlfriends about who the hottest boys are and what we’ll all wear to the latest dance.  These dresses make me want to go to homecoming dances all over again…

Grecian Beaded Chiffon Dress (TopShop)

Spun Gold Dress (ModCloth)

Sweet Jamz Dress in MC (ModCloth)

Sequin Puffball Dress (Asos)



I may not be going to dances anytime soon but at least there will be cocktail parties to look forward to this coming season where I can put on any one of these dresses, take the hand of my dashing date and live out my teenage dreams.
