Ah, Thanksgiving: A time to eat, drink, be with family, and wear forgiving clothes. If I’m going to be spending my day eating, drinking, hanging on the couch, and playing with dogs and babies on the floor, you can bet I’m going to wear something that’s comfortable and requires no sucking in. I’ll admit, I’ve spent many a very casual Thanksgiving in leggings and a hoodie (ie when only immediate family who have to love me no matter how I look were present). This year, though, my future brother-in-law and his wife hosted Thanksgiving in Chicago for both mine & my fiancé’s families (yep, big undertaking) and in order to fit in with the gorgeous flower arrangements, tablescapes and food, I had to look somewhat presentable. These jeans may as well be leggings for how comfortable and stretchy they are. I figured the gold dots on my tank added some subtle holiday glitz, especially when paired with my current favorite statement necklace.

Playing Dress Up: Winter Wedding

Last weekend, we went to a gorgeous wedding at a vineyard in Connecticut. And though technically it was fall, the weather was feeling more like winter. Dressing up in the winter can be a seriously daunting task—hence why I spend most cold days in leggings and oversized sweaters—but it is doable. The dress I wore to this wedding has saved me from winter fashion woes on numerous occasions, from New Year’s Eve to a company holiday party and now, this wedding. Seriously, it’s one of the greatest purchases I’ve ever made: It’s chic, versatile, and can be accessorized in so many ways. I got mine from the juniors department (affordable!) at Nordstrom a couple years ago, but here’s a similar one. It almost makes up for the frigid November temperatures.
