Feeling Blue

dress // blouse // tote // pumps // sunnies // watch // bracelet 

I'm a fan of remixing and wearing my clothes lots of different ways. Believe it or not, when I was planning this outfit, blue seemed the way to go. Although it looks monotone, I love the cohesive look of one piece.
It's really cold outside and I'm on the verge of abandoning outfit photos (again). I mean seriously! I get ready in the car, then jump out, pose for 2 minutes and jump back in. A huge thanks goes to my sister who is (still) willing to take my pictures.

Today is the last day to enter the $50 GIFTCARD GIVEAWAY!

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape {Home Decor}

Thanksgiving | Fall Tablescape | Rustic Simple Table | Happy Medley

I know that most of us don't have unlimited budgets when it comes to decor, so here is a look on a budget because who isn't trying to save a couple bucks. 

Every time I go on Pinterest to find holiday table inspiration, I love the pretty silverware and the gold accents. But, I cannot spend hundreds of dollars on just table decor, how about food? How about storing all that junk once the holiday is over? I don't have a basement and my garage is stuffed with junk already so really, it's not an option. 

This year, I wanted to create something pretty, simple and affordable, so I dug through my decor and bought some pumpkins at the farmers market. I wanted to create a Thanksgiving table look with everything that I already have. I mean, the pumpkins and gourds were 2/$1 and that's a great deal considering they are almost $5 each at the store. 

I totally forgot about these napkin rings that I scored on clearance at Bed, Bath and Beyond for dirt cheap, so they came in handy. Flowers I had from my birthday and napkins were laying around for few years unused. The vases I bought at the local Salvation army, filled them with red and white beans, and green and yellow peas (I think you can do red lentils for a pop of color, only I was all out at the time) then placed a candle on top.

And ta-da!!!

Alone Is a Good Thing

Plaid Scarf | Oversized Sweater | Tall Brown Riding Boots | Happy Medley

sweater // scarf // boots // leggings // crossbody

For some reason, I don't hate Mondays. I mean, sure the weekend is over and chores begins but I love the quietness of the house when Jonathan is down for his nap. I love doing my own things without people around and although I love spending time with hubby, I crave my own time. For me, being alone is a good thing because I get to think, relax and just be. So this post is brought to you by the quiet time on the couch and third cup of tea. 

P.S. Thank you to all my readers who faithfully stuck by me and continue reading my blog! Also, to all my friends who support me in this venture. I appreciate each and every one of you.

Fall Colors

Black Pencil Skirt | Modest | Mustard Blouse | Fall Colors | Happy Medley

<blouse>    <skirt>   <similar pumps>     <similar tote>   <necklace>
To me mustard, orange and black always mean fall. The warmth of is gone and we are in freezing temperatures now. You see, the blood in body doesn't think it's necessary to reach my feet, let alone toes. My feet are rarely warm and always have to have socks on. It's ridiculous because from the month of October to about May I can't feel my feet and after a while I got used to the feeling. 
I hope you are staying warm and enjoying sunshine! 
Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Life is too short - wear heels! No, seriously, ladies enjoy the season while you can still walk barefoot. The time of the year when we sit at home and look out of the window in hopes of seeing a ray of sunshine is almost here. I'm dreading the next six months I'm going to have to spend in fleece pajamas and triple tights. 

But on a happy note, Christmas time is coming and it's the most fun when you have kids. Can't wait for Jonathan actually get to open presents this year. Yay for white Christmas but then I wish we could just skip straight to May and have beautiful spring all over. Alas, it's not going to happen. 

So head on over to your closest TJMaxx and grab some fleece lined leggings, put them on and marvel at the fact that you haven't been living them before. You are welcome!

Fall Plaid

Miniskirt | Plaid Scarf | Fall Outfit | Side Braid| Happy Medley

sweater: Banana Republicskirt: Gap (real, steal), scarf: Joe Fresh (real, steal), bag: (real, steal),   flats: Marc Fisher (real, steal)

I know that a lot of my readers range in income and buying potential. A lot of times, I only include only ONE option for the clothes I have one, but from now on I will try to include a REAL($$$) price and STEAL($) price. So whatever it is you're looking for, you can find it on here.

Hope you are enjoying your week because mine is going extremely well! Hubby and I got to spend a day together without baby at home and I tell you people, it's such a blessing to have family close by. We weren't planning on anything but it just turned so that Jonathan spent the night at my mom's house and my sister babysit him entire day. 

We were able to get some quality time together (ya know;-), lounge in bed, sleep in and have coffee together in the morning - all without being interrupted for one minute. Then we spent the rest of the day furniture shopping and possibly getting me a birthday present. It was glorious! I cannot imagine my life without my family and so grateful that we live close to both parents. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Mix It Up

Stripe Dress | Target | Polka Dot | Brown Boots | Happy Medley

shirt: Target (similar)

bag: similar
necklace: J.Crew
Welcome to Monday! Hope everyone is getting used to the plunging temperatures and slowly taking those sweaters out. My favorite thing about the fall is riding boots and the many (many) ways I can wear them. I love pairing them with dresses, skirts, jeans and even shorts. You can't go wrong with a nice pair of cognac riding boots. Also mixing prints is always fun, but I like to stay within the same color scheme. Thank you for stopping by gals! 
Have a great day!
