Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I can't wait for tonight, I get to spend it with some of the people I am most thankful for! My sister Carol is baking away right now. Orange chocolate chippers, brussel sprouts, turkey, potatoes....mmm. Now is not a bad time to mention that I am very thankful for the culinary talents of my mom and sister.

And I would like to express my greatest THANK YOU to everyone who has read or is reading this blog! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for checking in with me. I've had so many readers touch my heart and my family's this year, and you make up A LOT of what I am thankful for today!

Whether you're stateside or not, I hope you get to spend tonight with amazing people (and pets, because they're family too)!

I have to say, I'm completely disoriented by this weather. We shot this outfit yesterday afternoon, it felt like it was June. I am wearing a Tobi surfer sweater, One Teaspoon bonitas shorts, a Rugby men's belt, a watch c/o Daniel Wellington, some old turquoise and silver jewelry from my mom, and Golden Goose superstar sneakers.

Tomorrow I've got a hair appointment with the talented (and stylish) Jessica. My head is always swimming with idea those few hours before a hair appointment....maybe I'll go silvery blonde, maybe I'll cut bangs! I usually end up doing a variation of the same. Better safe than sorry. In any case, here are some of the dreams I'm dreaming lately. I'm really into architectural and compact hairstyles recently, but then I love my big Barbie hair too.

I was so excited to get my hands on a few pieces from the Margiela for H&M collection. I've admired the originals for so long! My mom and I had so much fun grabbing these--not that many people were there for the launch here in Dallas, so everyone was able to take their time and try things on. I met lots of people while I was there, by the end it kind of felt like a private party! I heard that wasn't the case for shoppers elsewhere! We even went back with my dad to look at the collection. He got a a coat with a severed collar and the same fair isle sweater I bought. I have to say I was pretty shocked by his sense of adventure! Haha!

I'm wearing the Margiela for H&M oversized turtleneck, folded skirt, and candy wrapper clutch with Margiela cut-out boots.

Also wearing the Margiela for H&M perspex boots with vintage cut-offs, shiny Kova & T leggings (thank you to Kova & T for sending me these!) and Style Nanda jacket.

A lot of people on Instagram were asking for a tutorial on how to do the hairstyle I'm wearing. Thanks for your feedback! I will be posting a how-to for this look next week!

Here is a breakdown of what I'm wearing:

Jeans: c/o of Koral, perfect cropped skinny jean!

Turtleneck: Junya Watanabe F/W 2006

Lamb wool vest: Zara

Turquoise fringe necklace: 1970s Pauline Trigere

Ankle boots: c/o of Pamela Love, these are the boots she designed for Nine West! I love them so much. My friends Stevie and Erin have them too so now we're a gang.

Melanie is not the shy, retiring delicate flower that she was when we found her. She is quite the dare devil these days. Every morning at 7 am I am awoken by her pouncing on me and attacking my feet. I feel terrible for my sister and my boyfriend--they are her favorite targets. She's a good girl when its just the two of us! She's rarely two feet away from me--definitely a mommy's girl.
