I can't believe I've had Organized Mess for four years now. It's been so fun to be able to look back on my life through this. The first year and a half of my blog I talked obsessively about moving to the city after high school and now I'm finally here, living in the heart of Philadelphia, loving every second of it. I plan on having some major changes for Organized Mess in 2014. I would really like to have a more clear idea of what my posting schedule will be like and I would like to try and talk more about local fashion and businesses here in Philadelphia. Let me know if there is anything you would like to see! For now, here's a look back at my November outfits.

My go to Starbucks drink for the Fall season is the pumpkin spice latte. I'm obsessed with anything pumpkin flavored. I get super into seasons, so, of course, my favorite colors to wear during the Fall are shades of orange and brown. With Thanksgiving coming up tomorrow, it will be the end of the pumpkin spice season and into the peppermint mocha and eggnog latte season. Is it sad to compare your life to Starbucks drinks? Obviously I'm a little too obsessed.
Happy almost Thanksgiving!

There are certain movies that I buy right when they come out on DVD and watch them over and over again. After seeing this movie with some of my friends the day after it hit theaters, I can tell you this is one of them. We laughed, we cried, we all felt so many emotions and fell in love with the characters and the family. To me, that's what makes a film great. After hearing about it being made from the people who created Love Actually, I was already sold and the film exceeded my expectations by far (and trust me, they were already high). I honestly can't remember the last time I saw a movie I loved this much. Plus, on top of loving the movie I absolutely loved Rachel McAdam's character's closet, 'Mary: lived above a vintage shop, so of course most of the costumes had a vintage or quirky twist to them.
The main idea is that the main character, Tim (played by Dublin-based actor Domhnall Gleeson) finds out from his father that he can travel through time on his 21st birthday. I thought the movie was going to focus a lot on this, but I felt that the focus was more about appreciating the time that we do have, and that we don't have to relive every day in order to find something good out of it. I don't want to say anymore, because I don't want to ruin it, but trust me when I say GO SEE IT!

It's Friday and I can't be more relieved. It's been a hard week but I'm looking up to the weekend and for Thanksgiving Break next week. Sometimes you just need a patterned sweater to throw on with a colorful pair of jeans during a busy week. Oh, and maybe add some sparkly oxfords for some fun.
