Thanksgiving Day Look

Thanksgiving is one week away and if you’re like me, you still need to purchase the turkey! The last thing you need to worry about is what to wear on Thanksgiving Day.  Hopefully this Thanksgiving Day look will take the guesswork out and make your day less stressful.  Now you can just stress over the food and your family!

Our Thanksgivings are pretty casual and although I like to look nice, it’s not a runway show.  I’m generally the one who hosts the day at our house, which means I’m in the kitchen all day long.  The last thing I want to be is uncomfortable while I’m slinging the hash, or rather, the turkey!  My Thanksgiving Day look usually involves jeans and adding a fun sweater and boots  just makes it the perfect look for the day.

This sweater from Express is HOT and not heat hot, I mean fashionably HOT.  The balloon sleeves are such a statement and it comes in multiple colors.  Plus it’s currently 40% off! Why wouldn’t you get 1 or 2?

I finally caved and indulged in the the “Marlo” Over The Knee Suede Boot from Goodnight Macaroon ! If you have never checked out this online boutique, you MUST! They have the cutest things!!! These boots come in Tan, Black and Gray Taupe.

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving! XOXO-T

Over the Knee Boots



Hey Hey!  It’s Thursday…yet again and I see the dawn of the weekend coming over the horizon!  Have you noticed that I am always happy for the arrival of the weekend?  I mean, who isn’t? Right?

So today class I want to talk about the soooooo popular, must have, get them in your closet now…OVER THE KNEE BOOTS!  And no, I’m not talking about the ones that Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman…I mean, well you could get those but I wouldn’t recommend them for everyday wear…maybe in the privacy of your own home or maybe a night out at the Club…dance club that is…not Country Club, just to clarify.  Anyways…back to Over the Knee Boots or OTK as we # them on Instagram.  They are all the Fashion rage for this Fall/Winter and I happen to have acquired 4 pairs for the season…excessive? I think not!  I “need” brown, black and then of course taupe and need heeled and flat.  However, with the Frugal way that I like to shop…it is VERY practical to have multiple pairs (insert a wink here). OTK can be worn with everything from skinny jeans…to skirts…to dresses…and if you want to be BOLD to shorts (I did say BOLD). So, go get ya some…and if you have 1 pair…go get ya some more (insert another wink).

Fall Must Have’s

fullsizerender_3

Well Happy Monday to my Peeps!  I hope everyone had a Super Sparkly Weekend and is ready to tackle the week!  With cooler temps on my end…I am READY (well the mornings and evenings are cooler and during the day is a tad better…not 100% Fall weather yet but it’s coming, or at least I keep telling myself that!)  Sooooooo…I have been putting this blog post off because it’s hard to talk about Fall Fashion when it’s almost 100 freakn’ degrees outside (at least to me it is…the Fashion industry started talking about Fall Fashion the Spring before Fall hits…how do they do that?) Anyways back to ME talking Fall Fashion for your benefit.  Now, there are TONS of things I could go over because the trend list for this season is ENDLESS!  But, I am a Mom and most of your are Mom’s who don’t want to rock every single trendy trend out there SO, I am going to go over some of my

F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E-S!

Okay…so for my little look…Bomber, Stripe top (timeless piece) and corduroy skirt with Midi Boots!  Every single one of these pieces is very versatile and didn’t break the bank.  I’d say the entire look was less than $150…minus the Ray Ban Aviators. Duh

Bomber Jacket // Stripe Top // Button Front Skirt // Shoulder Bag // Midi Booties

Let’s start with my #1 on the list: THE BOMBER Jacket.  Run, don’t walk to get one of these!  They are a great  piece to add to any wardrobe.  You can get them in a variety of colors but I love Army Green…or Olive or Camo Green, whatev you wanna call it…it’s my color Jam.  Also you can get them in different fabrics from Nylon to Satin to leather.

Next, MAJOR Plaid!  And this plaid can go any which way.  You can rock it grungy or more dressed up with Cashmere…anything goes with Plaid! Pair it with Leopard print to shake it up!

Women's Plaid Shirt Dress - Merona™ Plaid Flannel Button-Up Shirt 

Ruffles and Lace…together or separate…the romantic yet vampy look is IN!  I’m not a big ruffle fan, well…I take that back, depends on what kind of ruffles really, but I do love Lace!  This look goes great with everything…however you want to rock it!

Flare Denim…It’s back Ladies, whether you like it or not…it’s back!  And believe me, I am glad!  I feel Flare Denim is very flattering, especially if you have hips, thighs and a booty or all of the above (which I do!).  The Flare bottoms help to balance these “lovely” features out and can also help you look taller!  Which is a bonus when you’re 5.4 and a half…ya, that’s right, I’m 5.4 and a half!

Lace Up…whether it be shoes, top or dresses…just Lace it up!

Shoes…or rather BOOTS, BOOTS and more BOOTS!  Go Over the Knee…as high up and they will go or go “Midi”, the new replacement for Ankle Booties this season (oh, and they are also very Mod looking).

Embroidered!  Yes, makes me think of Mexico and Summer, but the warm weather vibe is pushing it’s way into cooler seasons! You will find it on tops, dresses, jackets, jeans and even on boots!

Floral Embroidered Sweatshirt 

Chokers!  Ya, they may have been popular in the 1800’s, then again in the 60’s and again in the 90’s but Chokers are back and better than ever!  This time you can find them in a variety of styles like layered!

Handbags…skies the limit from Saddle Bags, to Bucket bags to Snake Skin to fit your every fashion whim!

  

HATS! Not just necessary for bad hair days but also when you’re having a GREAT hair day!  Hats are the ultimate accessory!
