Yay Monday! Since the days have been flying by, I am trying to enjoy each day for what it is! I find that if I focus on one day at a time, life is a little more enjoyable. (I know, easier said than done!)

Today I am bringing you all a really fun look! It’s not every day you see someone walking down the street wearing electric blue pants & a full on fur coat, but hey. I can’ tell you how many people looked at me like I had 75 heads while we were shooting — they just don’t understand!

Let’s start slow and move our way up to the big leagues, shall we?

Hidden Gems

IMG_8019Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I am writing about how and where to find the best pieces, that fit your style and wardrobe!

The idea for this blog post came to mind, because in the picture above, I am wearing a $4 sweater that I found at the place my grandma lives! It goes to show that you don’t have to be looking in the trendiest place to find such a gem. This sweater probably has a story that I may or may not want to know about, but the fact that it is mine now is so cool to me!

KISS: Keep it Simple Sista

IMG_7691

Welcome back, everyone! Tonight I am sharing a simple, yet chic look, that has become one of my go-to’s this winter. Between the cold and unpredictable weather, I want to keep covered at all TIMES! With that being said, I am obsessed with turtlenecks. They are so comfortable and cute. They are also quite stylish because I don’t think a lot of people wear them or think to wear them!

Going Out? Here’s a Look!

Hey everyone! I don’t know about you, but here in CT, we are getting so much rain today! The upside? It’s 50 DEGREES! Last week we were seeing temperatures like -10, so this is quite the treat.

For my rainy day blues, I usually like to cheer myself up by writing a blog post and sharing some outfit inspiration. A couple days ago, I took some photos for my blog with my friend, and fellow blogger, Samantha Glasow! Check out her website, samanthaglasow.com for more!

Opposite to my usual Friday nights, I am actually going out on the town tonight! I figured, what better, than to share a “night out” with you all. Here it goes!

It’s Been Really Cold…How I Keep Up!

It’s officially FREEZING! Here in CT, we are dealing with temperatures that feel like -6 degrees and sometimes colder. I know people from other parts of New England that are dealing with temperatures as low as -30 degrees with windchill (S/O to my brother & his girlfriend who are SO COLD in Vermont!)

Though its cold, I have been trying to keep up with my style because …isn’t beauty pain or something? Either way, I like to dress for winter, so I don’t let the cold temperatures stop me. My theory? Anything you wear, you can always throw a huge coat over and then you’re probably wearing more layers than anyone else anyways.

I am breaking down three looks for you that I’ve worn over the past week — what I am wearing and how I stood the cold in them. Let’s get going!

My 2017 in Review: Blog Edition

IMG_4326.JPG

Welcome back, everyone and Happy New Year! I took a bit of a break from my blog to enjoy the holidays with my family and friends, but now that it’s 2018, I couldn’t be more excited to be back.

I thought I’d ring in the new year by doing a sort of reflection, but instead of on my life, on the expansion and growth of my blog! I have to say, 2017 was a big year for Breakfast at Raes.

What to Wear: Holiday Edition

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to…have a really good outfit! …I hope you all just enjoyed my ‘Elf’ reference with a little bit of my own spin! In all seriousness though, it’s a couple days until the Christmas festivities begin (if they haven’t already) and a good holiday outfit never goes unnoticed!

I compiled three outfits to feature for you all today in hopes of sparking some holiday outfit inspo so that you’re sure to be looking good when you see a bunch of people you don’t normally run into! Let’s get started!!
