Giving Thanks

For this day of Thanksgiving I am forgoing my traditional post and sharing just a few very important things I am thankful for. While we can’t be with our families this year, we have reflected on what is most meaningful to us and how our lives have been blessed this past year {and every year}. I hope you enjoy this more personal post and take time in between turkey, stuffing and naps to give thanks for the people or things that have touched your life. Happy Thanksgiving y’all!

I love my family! Everyone says that right? But seriously, we have seen each other at our worst, our best and just our plain old usual and we love each other more every day for it. I am so thankful for all my parents have done for my brother, Erik and I and the opportunities they have provided. They support us in everything we do {with parental questioning of course} and no matter where our lives take us, they are always close by. People often ask how we move around so much and say “isn’t it hard on your family” but its never been an issue. There are {of course} times when we miss each other more than usual, but I always know my family is just a phone call or airplane ride away!

These girls are my bests! For real, we have life or death packs {but seriously}. Our group texts are infamous and we blow each others snapchat up on the regular. We tell it how it is, give unwanted advice, shop each others closets, throw sleep overs, laugh and cry with one another, celebrate life’s miracles and love each other every day! Theres just some people in your life who always stay with you and these are my people. They’re the Christina to my Meredith. 

The Classic Cape

J.  Crew / Sweater: J. Crew / Cape: J. McLaughlin {similar} / Bottoms: Lilly Pulitzer {similar/ Wedges: Tory Burch / Watch: MICHELE

I snagged this amazing cape from J. Mclaughlin a few years ago and every season I pull it out. It’s my favorite winter staple and provides the perfect amount of warmth when it’s chilly but stays in style all the time! You can find a similar one from J. Mclaughlin here and Serena & Lily also has a great one thats on major sale here. I love layering my cape with a classic oxford and crew neck sweater. I choose a pop of color to add a little sass to my outfit and to make it a bit more dressy, a comfortable wedge.  My outfit is perfect for the Holiday season {especially with a pop of red!} and can be even more dressed up by adding pearls, statement earrings, and a show stopping clutch! I’ve linked similar capes starting at $30 along with my favorite gingham oxfords below!

Holiday Cheer

similar} / Bottoms: J. Crew / Pumps: Louboutin / Watch: MICHELE / Necklace: Kendra Scott / Photos: Jessica Edwards

We had such a fun time at Bluetique’s Holiday Wish List party last week that I just had to share some of the details! I was so reluctant to surrender my pumpkin spice lattes for peppermint mochas, but once I got the slightest taste of Christmas it was game over. I couldn’t wait to start decorating and the Holiday party gave me the perfect excuse to get into the spirit! I wore a silk Elizabeth McKay top with J. Crew’s Pixie Pant and loved the green hue of my top {it was perfectly festive!} I accessorized with classic pumps, my staple MICHELE watch and favorite Kendra Scott necklace. 

For bites we served homemade treats and they were so delicious! It really felt like a Christmas dessert spread your grandmother would serve! For cocktails we made Jingle Juice {Vodka, Sprite and Grenadine} along with white wine and added fun red ribbon straws to finish them off. We decorated with traditional cedar and pine garland but added a touch of the south with magnolia leaves, branches, and burlap decor. I’d love to hear how you’re decorating for the holidays and any tips you might have for making it painless {hint: I use staples and floral wire to secure garland to moulding and mantels!}

A Pop of Color

similar} / Leggings: J. Crew / Clutch: Gigi New York / Flats: Chanel {similar} Bangles: Bourbon & Boweties {here & here}

There’s nothing I love more than a bold pop of color and Gigi New York makes the best clutches in the best colors. I love their embossed snakeskin collection along with their pebbled leather. The Uber clutch is larger and perfect for any occasion, but you can’t go wrong with the All-In-One. Its the perfect size to throw in a tote or handbag, but also great to double as a clutch. I accessorized with the All-In-One in orange and I just love how it pulls my whole look together and makes my bangles pop!

The Barbour Jacket

Jacket: Barbour / Top: J. Crew / Denim: J. Crew / Wellingtons: Hunter / Necklace: Kendra Scott

There’s nothing better for keeping your feet dry and warm than Hunters! And for your upper half, Barbour is where it’s at. When we lived in Seattle this jacket was all I wore. It has fleece lined hand-warmer pockets and also snap closure pockets for running around town. I love it’s double zipper and waxed coating to really keep you protected from the elements. Now, it’s my go to for when it’s a bit chilly and rainy out, I seriously love it!

SALE ALERT: My denim are on super sale and if you love the ‘Toothpick’ fit from J. Crew sang these right. now. They’re only $60 so you really can’t go wrong…

Holiday Chic

Top: Elliott Lauren {similar} / Skirt: J. McLaughlin {similar} / Heels: Tory Burch {similar} / Watch: MICHELE / Pearls: J. Crew

With the Holiday season in full force I’m sharing a chic way to dress your best for all those parties! I started my look with a classic black skirt. Mine is made from raw silk and actually wraps to tie in a bow at the hips. The one I am currently wearing is past season J. McLaughlin, but I’ve linked similar and affordable ones below! I chose a wrap skirt with bow detail as an alternative to your classic black pencil {I mean it IS the holidays right?!} to keep my look fun, flirty and chic. A sweater with appliqué details is perfect for getting this look too! Mine is Elliott Lauren but J. Crew and Neiman Marcus also have great ones. I completed my look with some pearls and heels that had a bit of sparkle! What’s on your radar this holiday season?!

The Cable Knit Sweater

Chicwish / Denim: J. Crew / Handbag: Louis Vuitton / Watch: MICHELE / Boots: Tory Burch

I have been living in military and hunter green this Fall! I can’t get enough of the color and this cozy cable knit sweater from Chicwish is everything. I paired mine with Tory Burch’s Junction Riding Boot and a dark wash denim. I also love this sweater with leggings and smoking slippers to give it a “menswear” flare. You can’t go wrong with a chunky sweater this season and if you’ve been searching for “the one” Chicwish has a ton at great prices. You can shop my look below and everything I’m wearing {bootsdenim and sweater} are all on sale!

I have been living in denim and top knots lately {sorry not sorry} and I couldn’t help but pair my favorite J. Crew vest with a classic plaid {and oh so soft flannel} shirt today! Louis couldn’t help himself either and made a great side kick! My boots are Tory Burch and on super sale {over $100 off!} I also couldn’t resist this cute key fob from Target. They have every letter of the alphabet and come in gold and silver and at $8 they makes the perfect stocking stuffer {or mid-week pick me up!} See other ways I styled my vest here.
