goodbyes and hellos (and a fun collab announcement you won't wanna miss!).

jacket: c/o oasap / dress: honestly, drawing a blank (it's late) / tights: We Love Colors / lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo / shoes: c/o DSW 

november // you were a good month.
pumpkin pie // because you have disappeared and have been devoured by the Butler clan.
autumn leaves // as you get carried away by the wind and lose your gorgeous colors.
old refrigerator // it was time for you to retire.
cold early morning runs // have to try to get used to afternoon "warmer" ones
fear and worry // i am so over you.
etsy shop // just for a little while as i soak in the Christmas season (shop closes 12/12 for the year so get your orders in - eeek!) 

bangs and bright red streaks // welcome back!
ankle booties // i think i will figure out as many outfits as possible with you (hashtag obsessed)
christmas music // you will be blasted loud and on repeat all season long
peppermint sticks // in my coffee with extra whip cream and red and green sprinkles
apple cider // with extra caramel please (Starbucks and homemade)
christmas decorations // around our little apartment makes it even cozier
anniversary month // one freaking awesome over the moon year of marriage

what are you saying goodbye and hello to in the new month of december?

much love.
