Merlot + Gold

unique vintage roman holiday dress

I can't believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I've always found that having pretty dresses for the holidays makes me even more excited for festivities, and this oxblood colored dress from Unique Vintage is no exception. I love the scalloped neckline and rich color, and the addition of the sleeves to this style comes in very handy for the cooler weather here. I found this particular style to run smaller than some other house brand vintage dresses, so I'd recommend sizing up – especially if you're like me and would prefer to have a bit of wiggle room in the waist to make it through Thanksgiving dinner!

I don't wear a ton of jewelry, but I do love delicate necklaces (especially in gold for the holidays!). I've featured my custom name necklace from Onecklace before on my blog, which I wear often, but when they reached out to me again to review another item, I wanted to try something different. It's weird: music is such a huge part of my life, but I don't actually own that many music-themed pieces! As a singer (and as the child of two musicians), I had to go for this beautiful treble clef necklace. It's the perfect length (which you can choose yourself, along with your choice of chain and finish), and it's of excellent quality. Although I opted to review a necklace, Onecklace also makes earrings, bracelets and rings, and they have a huge selection filled with awesome gift ideas! If you're looking for something special for the holidays (for yourself or someone else!), you can use the code Sammi10 at checkout for 10% off your purchase!

I'm also totally thrilled that I finally have some Loly in the Sky flats to call my own! I love these dressy gold flats (aren't the squared-off toes such a cute feature?), and they're going to become a staple for many of my holiday outfits. Pretty much all of their shoes are so charming and sweet – I have about five pairs on my wish list right now, like these sprinkle flats(!) and these quotation mark flats. Although I normally wear a size 9 in heels, I sometimes wear an 8.5 in flats, and I was advised to size down to the 8.5 on these; the fit is absolutely perfect, and they're super comfortable and padded on the inside. Even the packaging the shoes came in was adorable!

I'm feeling very thankful for all of the new and exciting things that have come my way this year: lots of new creative opportunities, achieving personal goals, new beginnings. I still have lots of work to do on myself, but that's always going to be the case. Right now, I'm glad to be where I am, and I feel very lucky to be surrounded by lots of love and constant support. I'm also thankful for pumpkin pie and my mom's mashed potatoes. :) What are you most thankful for this year?

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Gone Glamping

hey viv pink skirt

I'm popping in for a quick post this morning to showcase this adorable Happy Camper brooch from Erstwilder – and to appreciate what's probably the last of the warmer weather for a while. It actually snowed last night (gah!), but I like that it's finally feeling a little more holiday-like now. At least I had time to wear my peasant top from Pinup Girl before the cold really hits! I've never been an outdoorsy type in the camping sense, but I'd be up for it in a cute little trailer like this (and maybe with more amenities than normal).

I had a much-needed, low-key weekend for the most part, which involved lots of good food, great movies and snuggly company. If you've never seen The Brothers Bloom, I highly recommend it. I'd never even heard of it before, but I ended up really loving it. In contrast, yesterday was kind of anxiety-filled. I don't want to rehash all the details, but it's the sort of thing that happens just when you're moving on and feeling happy, and something from your past decides to weasel its way back into your life against your will. It's really hard for me to shake things off sometimes (I think that's part of being so highly sensitive), but I'm trying to prioritize what really needs my energy, and figure out what will best serve me. It sounds selfish, but if it isn't beneficial or healthy for me, then I can't afford to spend my time on it. I can't be afraid to check in with myself and identify what I really need. It feels weird saying that, which is a big indication that I need to not be so worried about pleasing other people, and need to focus on pleasing myself, above all else. Sometimes it takes someone who cares about you to point out that you should care about yourself a bit more.

Friday Favorites #112

Oh man, am I ever ready for the weekend!
It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away, but at least I get to look at holiday pretties!

I love these wintery + wonderful printed skirts (I might need the middle one)!

I have another scent of perfume by this same brand and absolutely love it. I haven't even smelled this one, but I'm totally swayed by how pretty it is!

I might have to have this Grease-inspired t-shirt...

...And this Ronnie Spector one, too (hi, Ashley!):

I have the shorter version of these boots, and they're awesome! I want to try the tall ones now, too.

This print is perfect for the upcoming winter!

And this new blouse from Heart of Haute is amazing! I need this print in my life.

Autumn leaves

vintage couple

As much as I try to deny it, fall is slowly turning into winter every day – which means that I'm savoring it for as long as possible. My friend Henry and I took these photos early last month, but I hadn't had a chance to post them 'til now. Henry recently posted a photo of his awesome necktie on his Instagram, and I realized that it would coordinate with this new-to-me vintage dress pretty perfectly! So we decided to have a day of antique-ing and photo-ing in our matching outfits before he moved away to New York City.

The leaves are pretty much all gone now, and I can hardly believe Thanksgiving is next week(!??!). November has really flown by. I'm not really looking forward to the freezing cold weather that winter in Rochester always brings, but I am excited for things to come, like the holidays. And the fun outfits that happen around that time. I think next month may be entirely filled with Christmastime apparel... I hope you can stand all the holiday cheer! ;)
