Brighten Up Your Black Friday With Pink!

I needed to get ready in a rush this morning. The turkey made me so tired last night that I just couldn't think! So, I waited until this morning to determine what to wear. No plan in place whatsoever....

To be totally and completely honest with you, I rarely plan my outfit the night before. Occasionally I will have a day that I have the energy to set aside a weeks worth of looks, but I seem to always change up each look when the day comes. Much to everyone's surprise I usually come up with my best looks while picturing my closet in the shower with my eyes shut.

Today my look is simple because I had to think quick. It's Black Friday and I work in retail so I needed to get out the door fast in order to get to work and become one of Santa's elves. 

SHOP my complete look!

Today TALBOTS is taking 50% off any one regular price item until noon and 40% off everything else that you buy! Now don't you think it's a good time to start shopping for the holidays?! Don't forget to pick up a little something for yourself too....

Mad For Plaid

Today I went little mad for plaid. The holiday season tends to make me do that. I spotted this J. Crew blouse on a fellow bloggers site that I admire and immediately fell in love. I wasn't sure if it would be too masculine for me with my short hair, but as it turns out,  J. Crew blouses fit me too a T. They seem to be fitted enough therefore it doesn't look like I am wearing a man's shirt. I was still questioning the blouse until I also spotted these gorgeous statement earrings from Talbots. They are the perfect accessory to feminize my look!

This gorgeous sterling silver vintage green stone Sarah Coventry ring I am wearing came from my online boutique, The Canny Canary. You can shop this ring by clicking right HERE. I must warn you that there is only one! Vintage is so unique!

Neutral Ground

 With all the bright colors in the fashion world this season, go figure I pick out something neutral. To tell you the truth, it all started with this tassel necklace from Talbots that I am wearing.....

I love anything to do with tassels right now. I think it's the vintage vibe that they give off. 
SHOP my favorite accessories adorned with tassels below!

The tassel necklace then led to the purchase of this perfect cashmere cable-sleeve cowl neck sweater and a pair of refined ponte leggings in coffee bean. I can't even tell you how great I felt in this outfit. There is a lot to be said for being warm and cozy.

SHOP my exact look below!

Actually, you could blame the purchase of this entire look on these fabulous 80's vintage Egyptian style earrings from The Canny Canary. They totally gave this look LIFE! There is only one pair available. Gotta love unique vintage jewels! Find them at The Canny Canary by clicking HERE or on the photo of them below:

It's Buffalo Season!
Earrings from The Canny Canary. Buffalo Plaid Vest from TALBOTS.
When I was a little girl I always dreamed of moving to the city. I loved the idea of picturing myself among all the hustle and bustle wearing CHANEL from head to toe. When I would draw pictures I would draw cities. Mostly I would draw Boston or NYC. I never really thought much about moving out west even though I hear that LA is a great place to reinvent yourself every day if you want. Now that sounds kind of fun for someone who loves fashion!

In my 30's I was a little embarrassed to say that I had never moved outside the state of Maine. I started a family here in Maine and It wasn't a good time to pursue my dreams. I never thought I would be saying these next few lines. Now that I am 41 I am proud to say that I have lived in Maine all of my life and I intend to stay! There is just something about this way of life that keeps me motivated and strong. The long cold winters have turned me into a "survivor" which makes me feel oh so grateful for those days that are above 30 degrees. Now don't get me wrong. We have beautiful summers here in Maine. We all just complain that it doesn't last long enough.

But at least the weather in Maine gives us a reason to wear cute winter clothes, like this adorable Buffalo Plaid Vest from TALBOTS. I knew I had to have it when I saw it. This vest is so New England. I plan to wear it for years to come, because New England is where I plan to stay.

SHOP my look!

And I must mention that I am wearing vintage screw back earrings from The Canny Canary. A buffalo plaid vest and vintage screw back chandelier earrings. Some might say no, but I say opposites attract.....

Sea Green Is Not Just For Summer.........

 We typically think of  Sea Green as being a color that we might wear only during the summer. I think that is exactly why I love this Seed-Stitch Turtleneck Sweater from TALBOTS so much. It keeps me warm during the cold fall and winter months and reminds me of the warm ocean waters that I have barely had the chance to experience. Find yours by clicking HERE.

 Today I wore my boyfriend jeans and my Gold Metallic Elise Flats by Sperry to keep my look more casual, but I feel like I could dress this sweater up and wear it with a pencil skirt and a heel as well as with leggings and boots.

 SHOP my exact look!

I've been wearing headbands lately as I grow my hair out. Don't get me wrong. I have totally enjoyed having short hair. But you know me. I need to change it up once in a while. It's all part of the fun of fashion!

And last but certainly not least, I am wearing this Vintage Perfume Pendant from my online vintage jewelry boutique, The Canny Canary. Isn't it interesting? It holds a tiny cotton ball that you can saturate with your own signature fragrance. Great for people who don't necessarily love putting perfume on their skin, but they still like to smell pretty. There is only one of these vintage perfume pendants available at The Canny Canary! Be the first one to own it by clicking HERE.
