Heart and Soul

{sweater | tights | sheinside skirt, c/o | similar booties | chicwish necklace, c/o}

I'm back from vacation and that means it's time to get back to reality.  {And by reality, I mean winter.} Spending a couple weeks in Florida was a great way to pretend that I don't live in NJ, but just to drive the point home that I do, it's been snowing every day since I returned.    It's almost as if the state herself took a personal offense to the fact that I was fantasizing about residing somewhere else on the east coast, and said, Oh really? Deal with this.  As you probably guessed, these photos were taken before my trip, back when it was still a reasonable 42 degrees outside.  

In other slightly vacation-related news, don't you just love the big pile of mail waiting for you when you come home?  I find that it really helps to soften the blow of coming back from two weeks of hanging around in the sun and eating whatever I damn well please.   This time around I was lucky enough to have multiple packages waiting for me, one of which included these new FDS portable cleansing cloth pouches.  I've used the FDS wash for years now, and am so addicted to it that I kind of freaked a little bit my first day of vacation when I realized that I forgot to pack my tiny travel bottle with me.  These wipes would have come in pretty handy then.  Each package comes with three pouches of ten wipes.  The pouches are so slim that they easily slip into my tiny, overstuffed purse, and are so cutely designed that nobody would ever know what they really are.  Ain't they adorable?

I'm Thankful for...Linda

Today I'm happy to introduce you to Linda of The Dragonfruit Diaries.  She is one of the sweetest, most down to earth bloggers I know.  From the moment we met, I've been in awe of her creatively unique style, and truly eloquent way with words.  Here is her Thanksgiving-inspired outfit.


Hi there, my name's Linda and I blog over at The Dragonfruit Diaries. Most of the time my personal style always has a dash of leather, spikes, or some other form of eclectic edginess. However, that's not exactly the theme that comes to mind when Thanksgiving comes up. So instead, this outfit is something I'd wear for a family gathering. The skull encrusted bag and fun tights still retain that sense of edginess that I like, but I decided to bring out the romantic side of my closet with this artsy print dress and burgundy beanie.

Hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving holiday, and don't hesitate to pop on over to my blog and say hello!

Please note that this is a scheduled post, so if I don't respond to comments, it just means I'm probably enjoying life outside of the internet.  Whatever that's like.

I'm Thankful for...Jessi

Taking over today is my gorgeous friend, Jessi, of Haircut and General Attitude.  She is one of my favorite people in the blogosphere - she is sweet, has a great sense of humor, and an awesome style that features lots of stuff our grannies would wear, but in the most modern way imaginable.  Besides, we're both vegetarian and hate cold weather.  I think we may be soul mates.

Outfit Details:
Jeans - ModCloth
Sweater - H&M
Vest - JCP
Bag - Target
Booties - Forever Young
Necklaces - Local Boutiques

Hey loves! I'm Jessi and I'm super excited to be borrowing Kym's blog for the day while she's vacationing.  Me and Kym go way back.  Well, kind of.  We've just been bloggy friends forever :)  She's the best.  We bonded over our many similarities and crappy weather.  And every time I come here I leave laughing!  I love that!

Anywho, today I'm sharing an outfit fit for Thanksgiving Dinner.  Something totally comfortable but with dressed up details.  I love the idea of wearing a stretchy sweater like this one to hide the little gut I'm sure to get from all that food ;)  The vest adds some more detail (and more tummy-coverage) and the little bit of bling on the collar is my favorite! Add a little jewelry and some fun heeled booties, and I'm ready to feast!  Oh, and the hair totally fits the Thanksgiving theme, right?  I mean it looks kinda pilgrim-y to me...

Well, here's to a fulfilling Thanksgiving for all!  As a fellow vegetarian I won't be having any turkey but I'm sure I'll devour my fair share of mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie!  Mmmm....

I'm Thankful for...Tara

Taking over today is my buddy, and fellow New Jerseyan, Tara from Penniless Socialite.  I have had the pleasure of meeting her in real life and she is just as sweet and wickedly funny in person as she is online.  Every time I visit her blog I leave laughing (seriously, wait until you read what she wrote below).  Fantastic style and a killer sense of humor.  If I was a dude I'd be in love.

Hello Bitty and Bunny fans! I'm Tara and I blog over at Penniless Socialite.  I was super happy when Kym asked me to fill in for her while she's away on a holiday!  However, I was not so excited about the or fashion on Thanksgiving.  You see, I have a terrible secret.  I am a terrible toast burning bad.  And there is a part 2 of my secret, holidays are the only days of my life that are not a fashion show.  On holidays like Thanksgiving, I wear (hope you're sitting down for this) SWEATPANTS.  So I figured Kym's readers didn't want to see me in my cut off sweatpants / shorts (yep, worse than you first thought) or see pictures of pre-made pies I purchase.  Instead, I am showing you a few of my favorite holiday looks (that I have worn on non-holidays).  Consider this my list of things I'd wear if I wore real clothes on holidays.

holiday dresses 2
1. Cats on a dress always make it more fabulous, especially when they're cats from Anthropologie.  If you've ever seen my Instagram, you should assume that cats belong at every holiday. 
2. My Dulcie Dress from Anthropologie is one of my favorite party frocks.  I've worn it to countless weddings and it would look great at the Thanksgiving table.
3. Red is always a great color during a holiday celebration...and patterned tights just make it that much more celebratory.

4. Whoever told you black and brown don't go together is a liar.  This Target dress has made appearances at multiple parties during the winter months.  
5. Lace and frills always have a seat at my holiday table.
6. Sparkle makes every holiday better.  Too bad this dress doesn't even belong to me.  I rented it for a wedding from Rent the Runway.

So, I hope you stop by my blog every other day of the year (except holidays) to see some fabulous outfit posts!
