soaring high.

 cropped tee: H+M / coral tank: f21 / boyfriend jeans: GAP
Soaring High scarf: Le Mode Accessories / necklace: c/o Little Tree Vintage / Natalia flats: c/o Blowfish Shoes

the South Carolina weather hasn't been the most festive lately.  and i really should be more grateful - that i'm not back in Chicago at a CTA bus stop, bundled up in a long down coat and snow boots, praying for the good Lord to send me the bus like NOW as the winds slice my face with fierce brutality (no joke - that's how it was on my way to work and back - shudder). i guess with thanksgiving just around the corner, i just was hoping for chilly (not brutal) temps. 

soooo...to somewhat kick off the holiday season (since the SC weather isn't doing it for us), my friend and i are making the 40 minute drive out to the nearest Starbucks. we're both from Chicago and miss the blessing curse convenience of having a s-bucks are every corner...and those red, holiday cups and holiday drinks! i die. i've also had this song, on repeat as i reminiscence the Chicago Christmastime.

oh, and the Target lady and her commercials always puts me into the holiday mood. 
bring on the Black Friday crowds and shopping.

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]

  1. oh I totally hear you about the wind. Syracuse is kind of like Chicago. Seriously, the kind of wind that sucks out your soul.

    I love that outfit though! That necklace is super cute.

  16. I don't go to Starbucks that often, but not being able to see one for a 40-min drive would be unusual given there's one (or two...or maybe three or four) in every shopping plaza here in Southern CA! Very adorable pics my dear. You make everything look cute!

  22. Think this has to be one of my favorite fits by far!
    The orange & yellow mixture is my fav! Wish I could pull this cute fit off (but with redhair I looked so washed out).
    LOVE.
