Thanksgiving in the words of 'Abdu'l-Baha

'Abdu'l-Baha is a man that I really look up to, the type of man that has made so much effort in helping others that you tell your children stories about his life. There are many things I am grateful for particularly my family but this quote by 'Abdu'l-Baha sums everything up perfectly. "Physically and spiritually we are submerged in the sea of God's favor. He has provided our foods, drink and other requirements; His favors encompass us from all directions. The sustenances provided for man are blessings. Sight, hearing and all his faculties are wonderful gifts. These blessings are innumerable; no matter how many are mentioned, they are still endless. Spiritual blessings are likewise endless—spirit, consciousness, thought, memory, perception, ideation and other endowments. By these He has guided us, and we enter His Kingdom. He has opened the doors of all good before our faces. He has vouchsafed eternal glory. He has summoned us to the Kingdom of heaven. He has enriched us by the bestowals of God. Every day he has proclaimed new glad tidings. Every hour fresh bounties descend." Have a great Thanksgiving with your families! xoxo Tasha Reference: Quote from The Promulgation of Universal Peace p.236-237 Photo Credit: Taken from @sincerelyjules instagram

Ladylike Leather

It's hump day which means a good number of you are dreaming about the weekend. Ladylike leather with a fresh hemline helps you get weekend chic ready. If you are not in Cali where the sun always shines you may want to wear knee- high boots instead of flats. Flat riding boots will maintain the casual vibe. Have a great day!

My Fall Tea

The Fall season brings with it spices and sweets that light up my taste buds. In trying to resist all things naughty and thus absolutely fattening I have created my own tea mix! Twinnings is one of my favorite brands of tea and the Chai has a good kick to it. Add in a little caramel delight and there you have the ultimate balance of naughty and nice. Try it and let me know what you think! xoxo Tasha

Pleat Me

The easy movement of this dress makes me feel like I'm flirting with my surroundings! The wider pleats lend a sophistication but the details of the belt make a subtle statement. The chunky heel of my favorite Rag and Bone booties brings enough edge to balance out the softness of the dress.

I'm yelling Timber!

I love singing along to the chorus of Kesha and Pitbull's song; I'm Yelling Timber. Somehow in my odd way of thinking I always connect the song to a lumberjack and my favorite pencil skirt. Not wanting the pattern of my skirt to be too reminiscent of said lumberjack I mixed it up with a Phillip Lim sweater.

On Monday's I Don't Care

On Monday's I usually try to channel the Brady Bunch and be extra chirpy, but sometimes this is just too much work. With that said I'm claiming this as my 'I don't care' outfit - checkers and leopard, enough said!

Guess Who's Back?!

I've been going through a phase where although I still want to dress girly I also have this desire to be carefree and slouchy. Any shrink might say it's just an excuse to wear flannel once again - I can't help it...I'm obsessed! Tell me the truth - yay or nay to polka dots and flannel? xoxo Tasha

They call me Red

Richly colored berries always remind me of Fall and the nearing of Thanksgiving. Painting my nails in these luscious hues are usually the extent of my love for the berry shades, however these Dana Davis shoes I found in TJMaxx inspired me to wear matching tights (nylons as Americans would say)! What color tights would you wear with this outfit? xoxo Tasha
