Happy Monday! Who else can't believe that Thanksgiving is nearly here?  2013, you have flown by way too fast.  If the cold snap we have experienced in Philly since the weekend continues, I definitely see more pants-wearing and a temporary retirement of my skirts and dresses in the future...

So I haven’t managed to capture outfit photos in the last few days (it gets dark so early now!), so I thought it would be a good opportunity to discuss some of my recent reads.

I don't have much to say about my outfit today, but I will say, that my thoughts are with all of the veterans out there today especially the special veteran in my life, my 94-year-old grandfather.  

Have a wonderful week!

October Favorites

Ocotber Favorites
Here are a few of my favorites from the month of October.

Snack: Almond butter with honey was my favorite snack of the month.  It works great with fruit, bread or crackers or all by itself.
Outfit: My favorite outfit of the month was 90's vibe.
Beauty: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Blackberry is my favorite color of the moment.  It's a nice change from the bright red shades I typically wear during this time of year.
Book: Americanah was my favorite book of the month.  I'm not quite finished yet, but I love Chiamanda Ngozi Adiche's writing.
App: The Skimm isn't actually an app, but is an email subscription I read on my phone that gives highlights of the major news stories of the day.  The Skimm is great for those days when I don't have time to read the news in detail.
Music: I didn't see the recent TLC biopic, but I still indulged in a little nostalgia by listening to the TLC 20 album.

What were your favorites for the month of October?

The holiday season hasn't yet started, but I feel compelled to wear brick red a little early this year.

Gray + Black

gray skinny 3
Jacket: Marshalls (similar) // Top: Marshalls // Jeans: Old Navy (similar) // 
Ankle Boots: Buffalo Exchange // Bag: Marshalls

Why did it take me so long to get gray skinny jeans? They are awesome. 

On another note, I woke up feeling refreshed this morning from the extra hour of sleep (I sure do miss the evening daylight though). Now that I've gotten rest, it's time to conquer my to-do list and start tying up loose ends for this year because I'm sure the November will go by as fast as the rest of the year has. I can't believe it's already time to start thinking about holiday gifts! Have an amazing week.
