Red Sweater

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!

Pastel Plaids

It’s safe to say that plaid is this season’s “it” look. From clothing to blankets to tablewear you can find this trend just about anywhere and everywhere. Target’s recent Adam Lippes plaid collection was both affordable and stylish. If you didn’t have a chance to check the collection out, many pieces are on markdown now, so hurry! You could even snag yourself a container of mouthwash dressed in the popular print. Lol! While I love all the classic red, navy, and green plaids, bringing in an unexpected color combo, such as this blush sweater is a great addition to your wardrobe. The sweater can be worn year round, but paired with boots and layered over a chambray button down, it’s a pretty pastel winter look. I linked a few of my favorite pastel plaid’s for y’all to check out!

// Love this pastel plaid scarf from Anthro //

// Adorable and inexpensive poncho option here //

// This Vivienne Westwood leather clutch is adorable at $180 //

// This sweater option is the same designer and print as the one I’m wearing, but with a different cut. Paired with over the knee boots this look would be gorgeous //

// Lucky Brand always makes a great classic button down and this one is perfectly pastel. Pair it with a chunky scarf, fur vest, and boots, and you’ve transformed it to a winter look //
