• What To Wear For Thanksgiving 2019

    Thanksgiving is a little over two weeks away! Do you know what you are wearing? I don’t! We are headed to my in-laws this year and despite my propensity to over plan and pack (way) ahead I can barely wrap my head around Thanksgiving being in 2 weeks! I love dressing up a bit for the holiday. We always used to when I was little and it seems like putting on your best clothes honors what a special day it is. Gathering with friends and family, taking a breath and taking note of how much you have to be grateful and thankful for. So here are some ideas of what…

  • Fall Fashion: Leopard

    Leopard is everywhere! And for good reason… it is basically a neutral in my book. A friend and I were just talking about how leopard is THE print for Fall. And good news;  you have so many options out there to add a little or a lot to your look. Even better news is that options seem to come in all price points… I mean just in case you don’t want to really invest in a leopard coat (but there are a few REALLY chic ones!)… but mark my words, leopard print isn’t going anywhere! (And, yes, #17 may be technically a “cheetah print” but who cares!) Find my picks below!…

  • A Week Out West

    We headed out to California for Christmas break for a change of scenery this year. My other brother and his family live in Marin County (north of San Francisco) and it was the perfect choice. What to do for Christmas week in Marin County, CA? Well most of this is what to do for any week in Marin County… but there is one very special Christmas stop we went to in San Francisco that I highly recommend! What I love about being out West is the emphasis that is put on being outdoors. The playgrounds and hiking trails are honestly the best. If you have elementary or younger aged kids…

  • What to wear for Thanksgiving!

    Thanksgiving has always been a favorite holiday in my family. This year we will be having a very low key family filled Thanksgiving and remembering what we are grateful for in this life. I am sure I will be wearing something comfortable and casual… but dressing up is fun too! It is only two weeks away so here are some ideas of what to wear when gathering for the holiday. The mixing of textures and fabrics is the key for these outfits. Velvet is so hot right now and give me a chunky knit any day! I also have a handful of friends heading to warmer climates for the holiday…
