Third Thursday Threads: Fall Footwear

I was so excited (and honored) when Bri asked if I would co-host Third Thursday Threads with her this month. This month's theme is "Fall Footwear." Well, if there's any theme that I can dress to - it's footwear related! I decided to pick these BCBG leopard pumps. I had originally seen them on Sabrina, and wouldn't you know, Cha Cha and Sheila are also now proud owners.

Leopard pumps are certainly not limited to Fall, they're pretty seasonless to me. However, because I love oxblood so much, which is inherently fall to me, I wanted to pick a shoe that I always turn to as a pairing with oxblood. Cue all things leopard!

I really love the simple pieces in this outfit - the silhouette is classic, there are no real big statement pieces, but everything about it makes me feel put together and complete. The scarf is also my new favorite purchase, as I've worn it about 3 times in the last week. How has this stripe addict never owned a striped scarf before?!

Be sure to hop on over to Bri's blog to check out her favorite fall footwear! And link up with us, too, while you're at it!

His birthday!

I decided to take the plunge and get this jacket after seeing it on Rachelle here. I figured it would be nice to have a jacket that isn't a moto jacket, since I seem to have accumulated a handful of that style! I'm so happy with the fit! It's probably a little lightweight for the winter, but that's nothing a few layers can't fix! It even has buttons in the back so you can adjust the waist! I loved this option since I can cinch my waist when I'm just wearing a light top, but when I'm wearing a sweater like this, I can loosen the fit.

Can we all say, "Happy Birthday" to Mr. Carylee, aka my photographer? After all, if it weren't for his time and energy, this blog would not be what it currently is. This is what I wore during the day before my hair appointment on Saturday. You can see my after haircut pic here! I ended up just switching into my black destroyed skinnies when we went out later that evening to celebrate with dinner and a movie. It was hard to follow in his footsteps after what he did for me for my birthday this year, but I still think I did well!

I bought him a driving experience at the New Orleans motorsports track. He gets to drive a Lamborghini, and I get to eat some authentic beignets. Don't you love the way I think? I have never been to New Orleans before, so I figured it would be a nice long weekend. He seemed pretty stoked about his present, so I shall call this year a success!

Tile print scuba dress

Speaking of shopping with Jenna, I found this dress while we were shopping last weekend. We are going to a wedding in DC this coming weekend, so I was on a hunt for a dress. I tried this one on and fell in love with the fit and printed scuba material. While I didn't end up choosing it for the wedding itself, I could not pass it up for 40% off.

Sunnies: Tom Ford | Necklace: Kate Spade | Jacket: Kenneth Cole (option) | Dress: Taylor Dresses | Bracelets: Express | Heels: Saint Laurent

Today I am in Rochester, NY for an overnight trip. Yeah, that sounds cold to me, too. I was on the phone with someone from Buffalo yesterday. The conversation went something like this:

Him: Buffalo is supposed to get 1-2 feet of snow tomorrow.
Me: Oh no! I'm going to Rochester tomorrow!
Him: Rochester is only supposed to get 6-8 inches.
Me: Only!?

Please send me on-time flight vibes!
