Forever 21 faux leather vest | Uniqlo turtleneck | Aldo booties | MAC's Diva lipstick

Today's photos were shot in a neighborhood near Boston over Thanksgiving break. Speaking of, does anyone else miss those few days off as much as I do?! My personally-cooked pasta and chicken is nothing compared to the feasts made by my grandparents. 

I wore this oversized faux leather vest over a turtleneck on the Saturday after Black Friday, aka recovery day. We didn't do much besides eat (more) and watch Catching Fire. I had no problem with this though; the movie was fantastic! I thought the relationships between different characters really had the chance to develop in this film. The action was also incredible - I found myself clutching my sister's arm the entire time. I haven't heard great reviews of the third book, but I have high expectations for the movie!

I also featured one of my favorite details again in this outfit - the red lip! This time, I chose a darker shade from MAC called Diva. In the spirit of this season's early sunsets, I like to intensify my lip color for the fall/winter. I even went ahead to buy the infamous Cyber shade, which I am still trying to plan a look for. What's your favorite lip color? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I'm in love with vampy lip colors this season, but I haven't found one that I'm absolutely in love with yet. How's the formula for the MAC lipstick? I have my eye on the Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel in Seduce Me because it felt so moisturizing, but it's sold out in Sephora :(

    1. I adore vampy lips too! MAC is my absolutely favorite brand for lipstick (so far). I've found that mine stays on for the majority of the day, even after eating! I will definitely keep my eye out for the Marc Jacobs product. I still haven't tried the infamous YSL lipsticks yet either!

  4. The red lip is definitely a great detail in a black/white outfit! You look stunning :)
