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!
