neutral november.


jacket: thrifted shirt: h&m pants: j brand shoes: bobbles & lace necklace: h&m
welcoming the chilly months this year has been surprisingly easy and maybe even a little magical. i know that technically no one has really "decked their halls" yet, and sure, thanksgiving hasn't even happened... but macy's has a floor dedicated entirely to ornaments and nutcrackers and starbucks switched their cups over to the red ones and maybe i'm just a tad bit excited for what's ahead. despite the fact that i broke out my flannel pajama set a week ago... nyc isn't quite ready to let go of sixty degree saturdays. so before dinner and a trip to hoboken saturday afternoon, twin and i found ourselves under this romantic bridge on manhattan's upper west, as the sun set behind us.
even though i'm a strong lover of brightness and color, i also appreciate a muted look that relies more on texture, and allows your lipstick or accessories to do the talking. the great thing about neutrals is their ability to be paired and piled, and still offer a put-together and effortlessly polished look.
what colors and textures are you wearing this november?

I am wearing a lot of neautrals as well this fall, especially grey + olive green- but I have been feeling like I need more color. I have my eyes on a mustard yellow beanie that I know would solve that problem! Also, will you teach me to find such awesome trifted jackets?! Your's is killing!
