Hello November!

Wow, I can't believe it's already November. Time has been flying by this year!

Picked up this great sheer crepe ruffle tee at Martin + Osa yesterday, there is a promotion going on this weekend (ending tonight) where all blouses and tops are 50% off! I thought it would be a great layering piece. I like it tucked into skirts, but also on it's own paired with a pair of slim jeans. Also snagged this anthropologie skirt on sale. The sweater coat is from M+O as well, it's on sale now and I had to buy it in both this oatmeal color and black! I love it. So comfortable and warm, and a great alternative to a jacket if I'm going out and don't want to lug one around.

What I'm wearing:
burgundy Martin + Osa sheer crepe ruffle tee
oatmeal Martin + Osa ribbed cardigan coat
anthropologie sweater skirt
brown anthropologie Snake Bite belt
brown Sam Edelman lace-up boots

As you can tell by the photos, I've picked up a new digital camera! I decided I'd stick to re-buying a Canon Powershot, since I loved my old one so much! Except this time I bought it in a delightful bright aqua color! Sorry they aren't that great of quality, it is raining and nasty outside and I haven't really figured out my new camera perfectly yet.
Yesterday was Halloween! I like dressing up for theme parties and such, but I've never really been a fan of Halloween. But I dressed up as a school girl last night (cheesy and tacky I know, but I had a plaid skirt from ages ago, and it was easy to put the rest of the outfit together) and went out to our local bar and had a great time dancing to a fun band! It wasn't too crazy of a night, but I had my fill of espresso martinis.

Today I woke up at an ungodly hour (thank you daylight savings!) and went out to breakfast.... brunch may possibly be my favorite part of the weekend. Bloody Marys and Eggs Chesapeake (where there is crab cake instead of the ham in Eggs Benedict) may be exactly what I'd want to eat for breakfast every day in heaven. Now I'm relaxing for a bit, then off to work and I'm starting a Princeton Review GRE class today! Not really that exciting, but a necessary evil.

Hope everyone had a great Halloween weekend!


  1. Hooray for the new camera! I love the color palette of the OOTD—and that skirt is so fun! I feel like my OOTDs are so boring...I love getting inspiration from others like you. Thanks! :)

    would you do more of a review of the camera as you use it? looking at that model and another canon for my next point and shoot!

  3. did you go to (have you ever been to) brunch at The Main Ingredient? Or are you still back home? I love their brunch! Harry Brownes has a $5 flat fee free refills bloody mary bar, too.
