Hello darlings! Can you believe it’s Thanksgiving week already? I’ve been a bit busy with a few different projects but today I'm excited to bring you another "Style & The Bar Cart." If you're not familiar with this series let me quickly break it down for you. 

Style & The Bar Cart is a creative series that combines my passions (style, decor, vintage & DIY) to serve as outfit and occasion inspiration for the modern-vintage girl who loves to entertain in style and prefers cocktails over wine.

For this Bar Cart I wanted to create a simple Thanksgiving themed cart but with a bit of a topical twist because that’s just how I roll. For the cocktail I made a Mango Mint Aperol Spritz and included other mango-flavored beverages such as juice and seltzer water on the cart. I also baked (via Trader Joe’s, lol) a delicious Pumpkin Spice Pie because what’s Thanksgiving without one?

Here’s a fun fact, I’d never had Pumpkin Pie until moving to the US 10+ years ago and initially I thought the idea was weird because we use Pumpkins for savory dishes in Guyana. Well my perspective quickly changed after trying the pie and now I have to have a slice whenever the season rolls around.

A vase full of greenery and my DIY Fall Macrame Wreath kept the decor friendly while my vintage vegetable print dress and raffia fruit heels play up the entire theme. I’ve rounded up several pieces at the end of this post so you can recreate the feel of this look and entertain in style this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!

Can you believe it's almost Christmas?! It felt like I was just adding my flamingo ornaments to my tree and now here we are again. Earlier this week I shared my recent "Shop & Tell" highlight featuring a small vintage-inspired apparel business and I also promised to share more of the looks from that highlight. 

Today I'm happy to do so and bring you two ways to style a vintage-inspired tee from the lovely shop Mischief Made. I have a few shirts from them but keeping in theme with the holiday season I decided to style this mischievous Jingle Bells t-shirt for you.

Yuri's designs are so adorable and the quality of the shirts are impeccable. They're made of a nice soft stretchy cotton so it provides a bit of a tailored fit. To learn more about her business you can check out my recent "Shop & Tell" highlight.

Now let's dive right into two ways to style this retro holiday t-shirt.
