348 : 365 The extent of my Christmas decorations this year.
349 : 365 Saw a new view of the city.
350 : 365 Set out on an evening ride by myself only to get a flat tire, my second in just as many days. Luckily I wasn't too far away from Jeff's place, and he was able to come rescue me. Later in the week I actually had a nightmare about both tires going flat on the same ride. Hopefully that was my last flat for a while, I've had enough of that.
351 : 365 Are you seeing a theme this week? Everything so far has been shot after dark. It's killing me how early the sun goes down this time of the year. It makes the days seem so short.
352 : 365 I had kind of a stinky day but it was redeemed, if only for a little bit, by these plugs from Omerica Organic. I can't believe how many incredible designs they have. As always you can use rep code "daintysq" for 20% off your first order.
353 : 365 Got out fairly early in the day and biked 12 miles. I wanted to keep going but my toes were SO cold.
354 : 365 Spent the afternoon exploring with Jeff, and Brandon. In the third floor of abandoned building with suuuper sketchy floors we found this golf cart. Perfect prop for a group shot! It's a mystery how it got up there. There are no elevators, and half of the stairs are missing.
It was a pretty awesome week. Climbing, biking, exploring - all my favorite things!

You guys. I kind of definitely 100% need this for my bike.

 I can't decide if I absolutely love or hate this round frame polaroid film. I bet portraits would look really pretty in them. It also comes in gold frame, which I always like!

Recently I was admiring this coat in store at Macy's but couldn't bring myself to purchase it since I'm SO rough on coats and it does cost a pretty penny. It's so cute!

This vase is probably the coolest ever.

Love love love this calendar. I can't believe it's so late in the year and I still haven't purchased one yet.

I've shared Quill and Fox's work in my Friday Favorites before but this postcard is just too good!

I'm really digging this top. But Kaylah it's just a plain gray top!? Hear me out. Earlier in the year I found this plain black shirt at Target. I bought it just for something cozy to wear and bike in. It quickly became one of my favorite items of clothing. I had no idea a simple shirt could be so powerful. Now I'm kind of the hunt for more things like it. This one looks like it has potential. It also comes in light grey.

I actually don't have a christmas tree up this year but if I did I'd definitely want this ornament for it.

This has to be the coolest tablecloth fort ever.
 Obsessed with this cardigan!

sweatshirt - Mulberry Press Co.
necklace - c/o Shlomit Ofir
jeans - TJ Maxx

This sweatshirt was my one and only Black Friday purchase. I recently discovered Mulberry Press Co on instagram and was bummed to find her shop was completely empty. The night of Thanksgiving I was having trouble sleeping so I was scrolling through intstagram when I saw she posted that a huge update and sale would be happening at midnight. So I tiptoed out of bed, made myself a cup of tea, and settled down in front of the computer. I refreshed the screen at exactly midnight, checked out, and was in back in bed by five after. I like online shopping, it's almost too easy! Hah! I didn't have to face any crowds, got exactly what I wanted and was able to get back to my warm bed in no time.
The beach is so quiet this time of the year. It's incredibly cold but my goodness, the glass pickin' is GOOD. I went with the intent just to take outfit photos, quick in and out thing since it was frigid but couldn't help but stop and pick some up. It's hard to ignore when it's so abundant. I didn't take any of it home except the piece pictured above. It's such a beautiful color, certainly not one I find often.

necklace - c/o Black Crystals
hat - Target
everything else -c/o Macy's

I'm so pumped about this outfit for a multitude of reasons. First of all, how awesome does that cardigan look with the eye graffiti?! I'm maybe a little too excited about that first photo. As soon as I spotted this cardigan I knew it had to be mine. It's not even my size, it's a xs when I'm typically a medium, but it fits perfectly! Some things are just meant to be. When I started considering where to shoot I remembered that eye on the wall and had to make it happen!

Secondly, I convinced Jeff to join me for outfit photos! He really didn't take much convincing at all. We really need to work on taking pictures together that aren't the cheesiest ever though. I actually text him after I got done looking through the photos to remark how annoyed I am with them. I look at him the way I look at baby animals, pizza, and everything else I love so very much. I am the human version of this emoji around him.

Perhaps most exciting of all, I've teamed up with Macy's for this post! I've never really been huge on shopping at department stores because I've always had a hard time finding things that I really like but I guess I haven't been in Macy's in a while! I'm really excited about this whole outfit. I was just about to type "especially..." and then name one of the items but I seriously love every piece. I spent SO much time in the store picking out this outfit. Probably actually the longest I've ever spent in any store, seriously. I went through the entire women's department at least three times, finding new things to try on each time. I couldn't believe how much of their stuff was 100% my style!

Below are some of my favorites Inspired by Macy's winter fashion guide. I've been wanting to add more colorful pants to my wardrobe so I was pumped to find the maroon pants. In store I only saw blue, black, and maroon, but online I noticed they have whole range of awesome colors. That orange is awfully tempting!
