Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? Have y’all made your lists and started your party planning? I’ll be hosting my husband’s family and a few friends on Thursday for a traditional feast, then Saturday my family will be visiting for a little post Thanksgiving gathering. Instead of doing turkey twice, Mike and I decided to serve prime rib on Saturday night which is always festive and delicious. I just finished gathering my tablescape details (watch for it on Instagram) but I’m still working on a signature drink to serve guests! Hoping to get a little help from Pinterest tonight. Tomorrow the kids and I are baking cookies and making my twice-baked cheesy mashed potatoes! Yummy! My mom always taught me the more you can do in advanced the more you will enjoy your holidays, so I try my best to do just that!
Let’s talk about this red sweater, which also comes in many other colors. If you are more of a neutral girl, the black, cream, and grey are great options, but red is everywhere for the holidays so I choose this festive color. I think it’s pretty obvious what I love most about this sweater – the SLEEVES! While I love the over-sized sleeve trend, I really need to pick a sweater that is functional for me too! As a busy mom my hands are in everything so I can’t be worrying about my sleeves getting in the way. The sleeves on this sweater are perfect, layered, not too long, and super flattering. It’s also not a bulky sweater, making it easy to tuck in a skirt or layer a fur vest over it! Grab it here on sale for $17 from $55. It’s definitely one of my new faves! You can shop the rest of my look at the end of this post. I found my scarf at another retailer for only $10!!!! Such a steal!
I feel like I’ve been talking about the weather so much the past few posts, so I promise this is the end of it! But, I want to jump up and down because it actually feels like Fall! Wahooooooo! I’ve finally transitioned from my daily iced coffee to hot coffee! I recently tried the pumpkin latte from a popular coffee roaster but I have to be honest, it’s too much for me! I find that the holiday drinks are too heavy, I do like to indulge in an eggnog latte or two (probably the richest of them all, lol). What’s your favorite holiday drink? As for the weekend, the kids last soccer games are tomorrow, we have birthday parties, and our 2nd annual neighborhood progressive dinner is tomorrow night, so it’s a fun-filled weekend! I know I’m late to the party, but I’ve started embracing instastories so you can check out what our neighborhood progressive party is all about on my Instagram account! It’s loads of fun!
Anyhow, I wanted to share about a jewelry line that I recently partnered with. If you love jewelry then you will love learning about Jeulia. In fact this post should be forwarded to all your husbands, lol! They offer beautifully hand crafted affordable jewelry that would make a wonderful gift for Christmas, an Anniversary, Birthday, or really any special occasion. When working with the brand, I wanted something I could wear on my right hand. I tend to wear a lot of gold so I fell in love with the pear-shaped champagne set! It works so well with all my jewelry and I love how elegant it looks. They have a wide variety of jewelry, including personalized necklaces, charms, and bracelets. Check them out! We may do an Instagram giveaway for the holidays so I’ll keep you posted!
It’s October 24th and we are expected to hit 90 degrees in Danville today! I’m trying to stay positive but I’m really missing Fall, warm lattes, soups, brisk morning walks with Louis, and lots of cozy layers. We are hosting Thanksgiving and I’m starting to think I should tell everyone to bring their swimsuits, lol! When we shot this look, it did have all the Fall feels so it must be coming to stay soon!
Y’all know I adore boho-style and color, but lately I’ve been wearing lots of muted staples like this green knit sweater. It’s super cozy and a tad chunky without looking bulky on. You can shop this sweater on sale for $18 here! How cute would it look with a plaid shirt layered under or a plaid scarf wrapped around your neck. I’m also so excited to share I found my Sam Edelman leopard leather and fur booties for almost half the price! Wahoo! These booties have been a huge hit on my Instagram account lately! Some sizes are already gone, so hurry and grab them. Shop the rest of my look below and some of my other fall finds at various price points! The Target velvet wine colored crossbody linked looks high-end and at only $30 it’s such a steal.
Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! It’s no secret I like a good deal and one of the fabulous brands that I partner with, Shein.com is having their 9 year anniversary and throwing a HALLOWEEN sale! Congrats on 9 years y’all! So, I rounded up a bunch of my favorite items that are marked down even more! I included all the regular “mom” staples, cozy sweaters, stripes, cold-shoulder, but also trends like velvet and long kimonos. Also someone please get the flamingo pajama set! Its adorable and I think it would be the cutest matching gift for a girls weekend! Happy shopping! I’ll be online all night if you have sizing questions! xx
If you caught my Instagram stories last Sunday, then you know I attended the sweetest garden themed baby shower! The ladies who hosted did such a fabulous job. When I looked at my gorgeous friend who is due in 5 weeks with her first child, I couldn’t help but think about being pregnant with my own kids. It seems so long ago, but I still remember the feeling of them rolling and kicking in my tummy. Pregnancy can be hard for some and easy for others, but it’s amazing that women are able to grow and give life. Truly a gift (even if some of us are sick the entire time)! So, let’s talk about this dress and jacket! I bought this jacket last year and because it’s suede I wear it year round! If you are looking to add a colored suede jacket to your wardrobe then look no further than this one! I promise that you will wear it all the time! My Flame of Love Dress is from one of my favorite boutiques – Yellow Peppers and it’s currently 50% off at $30, so HURRY and snag it! I love the print of it. I’m wearing a small (my usual size) but I actually feel like I should have ordered the medium. If your bra size is larger than a C cup, then I’d suggest you order up from your normal size because it will be a tad tight on your chest. You can shop the rest of my look below the post, with several options/price points for the blush jacket.
