 Hey guys & dolls! Okay so I don't know about you, but every year around this time my life starts to unravel. The weather is colder, work is harder, finals are around the corner and the fur coats I want online are full price! Ugh, the struggle! But thankfully, the light at the end of the tunnel is the fact that we have two major holidays to really analyze our life and realize, hey, it could be worse! Thanksgiving is this Thursday and I truly am amazed at how blessed I am. I have food on my plate and clothes on my back (and in my closets, and in my car, and in the mail). Jesus has blessed me with so much, that it's actually sad I only recognize it this time of year. We should be thankful everyday we wake up and find that our bodies are intact and our minds are still sharp, because honestly, He didn't have to do that. But you know what, most importantly, I'm blessed to have you! You guys will probably never know how much it means that you're even reading this. I love you.

Okay, enough of the mushy stuff. Let us get to the look-of-the-day! I've been buying kimono after kimono, and it doesn't seem to be stopping. But I have to say, this one is my favorite. I love the blue & black mixture against that textile print. I chose an all black ensemble to wear underneath because I wanted the kimono to be the focal point. I know it's a bit too cold to wear something this light, but you can get around it by pairing a turtleneck instead of a tank underneath or a long neutral colored jacket on top. Hope you like! Have a Happy Thanksgiving and I'll talk to you later!

P.S Make sure to eat! A lot! Because I will, and I don't want to feel like the only one!

The Camden Streets

Suit Jacket- Mossimo
Fringe Top- Forever 21
Jeans- Forever 21
Heels- BCBG
Bangles- Macy's
Earrings- Forever 21

This was a look I wore a little while ago to school in Camden. My university is located there, and as a freshman I was skeptical. You know, you hear so many horrible things about a place and it makes you weary of it. But over the years, I realized the heart of this city is actually pretty amazing; you can find people of all walks of life, a mash of cultures and a beautiful community. Granted, Camden does have some growing to do, but this city, if given the chance, can become a thriving, vibrant place to live and work (and go to school...yay Rutgers!).

Anyway, I wanted a laid-back, chill-out look, so I opted for my F21 ripped skinny jeans and a suit jacket. I actually have a matching suit pant to this blazer, but I thought that would be too much for your eyes. Besides, you have to be one confident cookie to rock the entire suit, given that print! Let me know how you feel about this look and I'll catch ya later alligator!

P.S Am I the only one that notices how similar the background of these pics are to the opening sequence of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? "Now, this is the story all about how/My life got flipped, turned upside down/And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there/I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air..."
