An Easy + Warm Preppy Thanksgiving Outfit

Tiered Plaid Top (Also available here. Love this one, this one and this one as well.) / Velvet Leggings (They’re the BEST. Here’s the leather version, btw. But I also have and love this pair of velvet leggings, which are more affordable.) / Block Heel Pumps (Also love this pair.) / Sweater Blazer (Also available here. In navy here and in gray & black here.) / Wool Trench Coat (Not pictured, but available in more sizes here and here. And my favorite peacoat–only $38!–here.)

You’ll actually see this outfit in another blog post soon, but I wanted to pop in today to share an easy (and warm!) look for Thanksgiving.

Life Update & Recent Finds, 11/17

I think it’s perfect for the holidays!) / Marc Fisher Pumps (But LOVE this black velvet pair. I tried them on recently and they’re SO comfy and they fit TTS. There are also these navy velvet bow pumps. DYING.) / Tortoise Clutch c/o / Lisi Lerch Earrings c/o / Mitch’s Bonobos Suit

It’s been a while since I wrote about what’s going on in my life, so I thought I’d share a few quick updates!

Transitional Sweater Dresses

Camel Sweater Dress (Sold out, but love this one, also available at Madewell in more sizes. And recently bought this one, available at Nordstrom as well. And the gray Donegal sweater dress and striped version?! Swoon.) / $38 Peacoat (Have you seen the Kate Spade bow version?! I’m crazy obsessed with my Ralph Lauren coat, and this one’s a classic.)  / Over-the-Knee Boots (This waterproof pair, which is much more affordable, is amazing. See more waterproof Blondo boots here. And an A+ for this pair, which all my cousins have and swear by.) / Striped Turtleneck (Love this onethis one and this one as well.) / $48 Tote (So soft and holds a ton! Love this leather tote and the bow version, too.)

Okay. I have NOT forgotten about that “What I Packed for New York” post. It’s coming soon, I swear. I even took the photos of my suitcase! (#miracle, haha…)

Okay, guys. This is it! We’re roughly a week out from Thanksgiving, so the blog is unofficially in holiday mode. I’m SO excited.

It’s kind of crazy that the holidays are upon us. Until a few weeks ago, I was pretty stressed about ’em, probably because I was a little traumatized by last year, haha. (We simply did way too much as new parents.) This year, though, we’re reelin’ it in and taking the holiday season a bit slower. And I really think it’s going to be fabulous as a result. We’re ready for the Holidays.

20 Things I’m Grateful For

Stuart Weitzman Boots (More affordable versions herehere and here) / Hudson Jeans (And love this pair.) / Similar Cape / Pearls / Similar Flannel Gingham Shirt / Emma’s Dress and Bow Coat

^ Kelly recently posted the above photo to Instagram for a campaign, but I couldn’t help but use it in today’s post.

Mitch here!

Surprise! I’m taking over the motherhood series that my wife does with Emily and Shaheen today because Kelly is working on another project and needs some help tonight. Yes, I realize it’s a little weird that I’m writing the motherhood column, but I’ve done it before and god knows I’ll do it again!

Blue Wrap Coat

T Tahari Wool Belted Wrap Coat (It’s on sale! And it comes in so many other colors. Looking for a new coat that’s an absolute steal? My favorite peacoat is on sale for only $38!) / Fair Isle Sweater (Love the matching hat, gloves and scarf! Other great fair isle sweaters here, here and here.) / Stuart Weitzman Boots (More affordable versions here, here and here) / Hudson Jeans (And love this pair.)

Are we sensing a theme in this past week’s blog posts? I’m cold, haha. Anyone else far chillier when winter first arrives compared to when we’re in the middle of it? It’s just such a shock to the system, and I can’t seem to warm up. THE STRUGGLE, guys.

Canada Goose Shelburne Review

Canada Goose Shelburne Puffer Jacket / Sorel Boots (Old, but just got this pair and LOVE them! They run small. Order a half size up.) / Rag & Bone Jeans (They run TTS.) / Free People Scarf (Also love this one and this one) / BP. Sweater

Orange and red leaves on trees; snow on the ground. Such a weird sight, but it’s our reality at the moment. ;) Which you know if you saw this post. Magical… but somewhat shocking to the system!
