Snapped these photos on the Lido Island docks near Blake’s parents’ house in Newport. The sunset from this spot was so perfect…dark clouds and all!

Hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was filled with of lots of turkey eating and wine drinking with loved ones. Ours definitely was! And a special belated thanks to YOU, for reading OnTheRacks and giving me motivation to challenge myself and explore my personal style. Your kind words and support have meant more to me than I could ever say. ♥

This sweater was part of my recent H&M faux leather binge and it is super warm and cozy. Paired with my trusty quilted Wang shorts (yes, I am wearing pants…err, shorts underneath) and these cute tights my mom got me! It is amazing how much more comfortable a pair of not-so-pleasant-to-walk-in heels is when worn with even the thinnest of tights. It’s just a shame that I tend rip them after only one wear.

My parents were in town for the weekend, and on Saturday we escaped the city for a quick trip to Napa! Wine country is pretty much my favorite place to be, and I couldn’t have been in better company. Not only was it great to spend time with my family, but we decided to bring Lola along in honor of her fourth birthday. Happy birthday to my little flea!

Scored big on the faux leather front at H&M a couple weeks back — these pants in brown and black being among the few things I picked up. In my past experience similar pants have only survived one season (like they literally ripped in half while I was wearing them), but at 25 bucks a pop I’ll still claim they’re worth it.

Lately I have been drawn to all things shimmery. So clearly the second I laid eyes on this hologram-like sparkly thing from Anarchy Street, I knew it had to be mine! Paired with a lacy tee for a bit of contrast and my go-to clunky platform boots and was on my merry way.

My parents are coming to town tomorrow and then we are off to Napa for wine tasting. Party time!! Following me on twitter? Stay tuned for what will likely be drunken tweets and instagrams along the way. ♥

Wore this outfit a couple weekends back…before it turned into WINTER. Isn’t the time change weird?

Borrowed the pink vest from my sis – so nice living 3 blocks away! I may try and steal it from her for good…it is pretty perfect. Shh, don’t tell.

Hope this “Fall Back” B.S. is treating you better than it is me — I hate leaving work in the dark. Bah humbug!

Hooked on this Australian line called My Pet Square (or is it myPetsQuare?). They make the coolest dresses!!

Gotta love a piece of clothing that you can just throw on and call it a day…no fuss fashion, if you will. Just mess up your hair a bit, add some oversized sunglasses and a pair of big heels to stomp around in. I always feel most comfortable this way.
