I spent Thanksgiving with a dear friend and her family this year so I figured I needed to step up my parent-and-grandparent-appropriate dinner attire. I wanted to be comfortable but clean cut, fashionable but classic.
Ladies, for the love of all things holy and leather, have we learned the importance of "belt it!!" yet? This outfit was cute on its own, but as soon as I cinched the waist with my thin brown belt it really all came together. Both the collared shirt and sweater are from the Gap (a go-to for all things classic and staple), the jeans are Mavi and yep, those are my beloved Zodiac boots again. Even the mama bear host mentioned to her daughter, my friend, that I looked cute in my sweater :) Winner!
The next day I needed to nurse my turkey hangover a bit so decided to adventure outdoors (thus avoiding Black Friday mayhem) and get some practice using my fancy schmancy camera (the results of which you can find here). It was a crisp fall day and I wasn't 100% sure where my adventures would take me, so I needed to be super comfy and snuggled. What better way to achieve both than with a knit circle scarf from Heritage Row, doubled up for extra snuggles?
Can someone teach me how to knit one of these bad boys? I'd like one in every color! Please and thank you.
Finally, I've noticed that my wardrobe is severely lacking blouses. I guess, admittedly, I've always been a tad afraid of them because I assumed they'd be uncomfortable in comparison to the basic cottons I tend to stick to. I also hated the idea of extra trips to the dry cleaners. Woof. BUT, I LOVE this Collective Concepts blouse Jenny picked for me from her shop (machine wash cold, hang to dry!); tucked in with a go-to brown belt, good fitting jeans, a simple gold necklace (that you can barely see, but it's shaped like a feather and is oh-so pretty) and duh, my Zodiacs, it was the perfect, effortless dinner look I was going for last week.
Friends--I'm super stoked to announce that next week Heritage Row and The Grateful Life are teaming up for a contest in which the selected winner will receive some FREE Heritage Row swag!!! Tis the season of giving and we want to give to YOU. You won't wanna miss this chance. More details to come soon :)
Love and Light,
