Back in Cali w/ Bday Loot!

Hello, Fabbers! Thank you to everyone who replied on my OT thread last week... it can feel awkward coming back after so long an absence, but I'm glad to not be forgotten. <3

I have been in Missouri with my family, so I didn't take many outfit-specific shots, but I wanted to share some of my bday loot! 

I have talked before about my gigantic head, and it turns out I wear the same hat size as Dad. I kept trying his on, so he brought me to pick one out for myself. I tried on lots of Rag & Bone fedoras, but I liked the shorter brim of the men's Pendleton - PSA: if you're looking for a menswear hat, Pendleton and Scala rock, and they're less than 1/2 the price. 

Dad was also drawn to fur jackets, and my sister and I both ended up with the Hollister cardigan in the first picture. I couldn't see myself wearing a full-fur bomber that often, and this was a nice hybrid on sale. I love it with my YLF leopard booties. 

The yellow wristlet was a gift from my sister - great match for my Kate Spade bag. :)

Pic 2 shows one of the gifts from my (step)Mom, a wonderful mauve scarf from American Eagle. I think she has officially set me off on a mauve kick - I need more! Worn with my Theory pants and Vince scuba (Ebay super score). 

Extended and pic heavy account of the trip available on my website if anyone is interested... some really yummy restaurants there! 

My only regret... too warm for coat weather! Didn't even wear my puffer. Sigh...

    How cute are you and dad ^^ Great hat, in such a fab shade of olive for you. Totally love the entire color combo in the first outfit: charcoal, brown fur, orange cheetah, olive, and YELLOW. Super fun. That's a cool sweatshirt, certainly looks like a less bulky way to wear a "fur vest" and it's got that excellent drape that you rock.  The second outfit looks perfectly comfy casual, and the mauve is a surprisingly good color for you. Really like the light bag with the outfit, keeps it from looking overly heavy. YAY I'm happy to see you post :D

    You look so great in your hat, as well as the furry jacket. What a cute photo of you and your dad. Mauve is pretty on you, too!

    Rae - so glad to see your back!!  Wow, your dad is so dapper, edgy and uber stylish!!  Now I see where you get it from.  I have the opposite problem, little poindexter head.  Hats are too big on me.  I wish I could wear something wonderful like you have on!!  Lucky girl.  Amazing gifts, love the jacket!!  You look wonderful!!  Enjoy all your gorgeous holiday goodies!

    You are such a hat girl!  Love it.    Dad is a cool dude, and how fun that he would pose for a picture you posted.
    Hope to see more of you, and will check out your blog!  Happy holidays.
