Happy happy Friday! I don’t know about you guys but I am beyond ready for the weekend. I’m planning to spend my chilly weekend afternoon/evenings curled up with a steaming mug of tea to finish Grey’s Anatomy with Carl (we are SO close!).
Today I’m starting a new series- Friday Favorites! It won’t be on a regular schedule, but I thought it would be a fun way once in awhile to a few life updates, photos, etc. along with some of my recent favorites!
My Halloween look this year! I was pleasantly surprised at how the whole thing turned out. I saw this headband at SPIRIT and I fell in love with it instantly and knew I had to use it!
Pumpkin patch fun! Whoever came up with the idea to put a pumpkin patch on a winery is one of my new heroes.
It’s not fall without cozy sweaters and clocking in hours at my favorite local coffee shops. Read on for my obsession with this nail color!

Sweater weather is here! But as much as I love a good fall weather sweater, I’m more of a fan of fall cardigans. The comfier and more oversized the better, in my opinion. It just feels like wrapping yourself in a comfy but stylish blanket. I wear mine to death and am definitely on the hunt for some new ones for this season.
Cardigans are also great because they are so versatile! So today I’m styling one of my favorite die-hard cardigans from Forever 21 in 3 casual styles.
This is my weekend errand-running uniform for chilly days. Grocery shopping, quick coffee run, farmer’s market- you name it. I’m a sucker for all-black, especially in the fall, and I love having this creamy neutral oversized cardigan to pull it all together. This outfit is always on repeat because it’s lazy girl chic at it’s finest- somewhat pulled together but oh-so comfy! I got this t-shirt from Target and I swear I’m going to go back and buy 3 more in assorted colors- it’s so soft!
This look is perfect for us California girls who have to deal with half cool/half still-warm days. This dress is so versatile and comfortable and it’s the perfect length to wrap up in the cardigan. I’ve also dressed it up with a statement necklace and nicer heels. Short booties elevate this to a look you can wear meeting friends for lunch or on a day date.

This past weekend, I’ve been reflecting a lot on the power of positivity and gratitude in my life. I’ve always been a person who naturally looks on the bright side of things, whether things were going great or they were really crappy. I’m coming to realize what a gift that is, even though at times I can get caught up in self-pity and complaining, about big and little things..
But what good does that do? None. Who am I helping by complaining? No one. How is having a pity party for one going to help my situation? Not at all.

FriYAY, am I right?
This week feels like it flew! I can’t believe we’re almost done with 2016. So crazy!
The temperatures have been cooling off here in San Diego, which is amaziiiing since I’ve been dying to wear all my fall outfits. It’s hard to enjoy your Starbucks red cup while it’s 90 degrees outside, trust me.

What a weekend!
If you follow me on Snapchat (@melissa_ann7) or on Instagram, you saw that I was all over the place celebrating my birthday weekend.
My parents took me out to lunch to P.F. Chang’s on Friday (I live for the Dynamite shrimp!).
Carl and I explored Coronado all day Saturday and met friends in Encinitas at night for bar hopping. If you are ever in San Diego, I highly recommend checking out both areas! I never realized how big (and insanely beautiful!) Coronado is- perfect for an all day date.
