everything in this wish list just looks so good. i would do anything to be wearing this cashmere sweater and wrap right now. they both look so soft and warm!

i feel like you can never have enough clutches, pouches, and makeup bags. i always find a use for them or something to fill them with. these metallic leather cases from cuyana are beautiful!

lastly, i have had my eye on these stuart weitzman boots for over a year now--the black suede looks so luxurious!

this is going to be it for me this week. i'm going to take the rest of the week off to spend some time with my family and enjoy the thanksgiving holiday!

happy friday!

happy friday! man, these weeks are flying. time definitely goes by faster when you're busy--at least i was busy with lots of exciting projects! i'm a little burnt out now, but it's nothing a good, relaxing weekend can't fix (oh, and some sugar cookie tea... i'm addicted).

whatever you're up to this weekend, i hope it's good! be sure to check out this week's links below!

i've never been that great at liquid eye liner, but this eye liner is magic! the tip is so precise and it's really easy to apply. now i need to master a cat eye.

diy sugar scrub (just in time for winter).

this long shawl-cardigan looks so comfortable.

i've been craving gingerbread. these gingerbread bundts with cinnamon glaze sure do look delicious.

a sparkly and festive nail polish!

cozy sweater & tuxedo leggings

there are a two things that i live in all winter-long: cozy sweaters and skinny black pants (jeans, ponte pants, leggings... i wear them all). this sweater and leggings combo from ann taylor is absolutely perfect. the sweater is so soft and i adore both the style and the color. while most of my sweaters are solid colors, this one changes things up with a mix of grey and white. it's every-so-slightly longer in the back, and i think this sweater was just meant to be paired with these tuxedo leggings.

the leggings have a strip of leather down the side which gives them a bit of an edge (i'll admit, i feel cooler wearing them, too). the legging material is really thick which makes them both slimming and flattering. just like the sweater, i think i'm going to be reaching for these pants quite a bit over the next few months.

and being the accesories-lover that i am, i couldn't resist this tassel pendant necklace or this chunky knit hat. i've never been much of a beanie person, but this one changed me! and i definitely have a slight obsession with pendant necklaces right now, and this one is so gorgeous.

buddy editions

i'm very excited about katie armour's newest venture, buddy editions. katie has the best taste (if you aren't following her on pinterest or instagram you're seriously missing out), so if it has her stamp of approval i know it's good.

buddy editions is a new online gallery filled with the spectacular work of emerging artists around the globe. i had signed up for buddy this past summer, and when it launched last week i was happy to see that some artists i have long-admired had contributed their work. i also love that each artists has a full profile with a bit of background info and answers to a questionnaire.

while i have many favorites, i have always been a big fan of danielle kroll's illustrations. and i can't get enough of oliva rae james's photo of bill murray. really, who doesn't need a print of bill?!

be sure to stop by buddy editions to check out the full collection!

bill murray, olivia rae james / abstract no. 2, natalia roman / manhattan matches, danielle kroll / cherry blossoms, haleigh chastain walsworth / photo-synthesis no. 5, satsuki shibuya / tasting stars, danielle kroll
