Here’s another Thanksgiving outfit idea! What I love about this outfit is that it’s casual but dressy and comfy but put together. Perfect for stuffing (and hiding!) your belly on Thanksgiving!

This scarf is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I love the double sided option and it’s so large and cozy, you’ll just want to wear it everywhere. It comes 12 colors and I already have plans to buy the series 1 red and the series 2 green for the upcoming holidays! And that wallet? If you are in need of a new one, it’s literally the best wallet I’ve ever owned. There’s so much space and everything stays so well organized, not to mention it’s pretty chic. 🙂

Yesterday my oldest younger sisters’ 24th birthday! She is such a peppy, bubbly, one of a kind lady and is worth celebrating in the best way. For your information, “the best way” means the whole family going out to a buffet. And I’m saying in the most unsarcastic way ever. 100% honest. I LOVE buffets. 🙂

Since the weather has done a 180, iit did not get above 40 degrees yesterday. Considering it was 70 Monday, my sinuses are not happy, my flip flops are retired for the season and I am freaking cold! But birthdays are for dressing up and I will not compromise. Plus, I feel like (insert your favorite four letter word here) and wearing heels when you’re sick makes you feel like a rockstar.

It’s beginning to feel like fall! After two weeks spent in the 80s, it has finally started to cool down around here. Sweater time!

The only downside is that the weather has changed so drastically in such a short time that I’ve been feeling pretty under the weather lately. It’s also been a super busy week getting ready for Ireland, prepping for Halloween and not to mention my weekend was super packed with my siblings spending the whole weekend with us, two birthday dinners and a third non-birthday dinner as well. Whew!

This past weekend we went to the pumpkin patch. It’s the same pumpkin patch I went to with my mom and dad when I was itty bitty and the same guy still drives the tractor that takes you into the field. It’s very nostalgic for me. We go every year, ride up to the field, take pictures, pick some pumpkins and buy some candy at the country store on the farm. It’s one of my favorite things to do in the fall.

I have been dying to wear this top since I got it a couple months ago, knowing full well I wouldn’t until fall arrived and this was the perfect occasion! Yes, I wore my boots into the pumpkin field and you know what? I did not wobble or trip or feel stupid once – they are really that comfortable. I’m just as shocked as you are. 🙂 And aren’t these earrings super cute for fall?! My dad bought them for me on a trip a couple years ago and I have never worn them! They remind me of indian corn, so fall was the perfect time to give them a go.

I try not to think about our wedding day. Don’t get me wrong, it was the best day of my life, but think about all the details and the stress I was under gives me a mini panic attack. However, today is our anniversary and I will remember. As much as I give myself hives thinking about the hurricane and the little things that I had no control over, it all goes away when I think about the underlying meaning of our wedding day.

We’re married. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters. We have experienced so much together and there is not a single person I’d rather be jumping in feet first with. My husband is the most amazing man I have ever met. I am so blessed to have someone who truly completes me and has helped me create a life I never thought I’d have. He allows me to be a stay at home wife (and one day a stay at home mommy), focus on what’s important to the two of us and to go on trips I’d never be brave enough to take myself.

Although this past week has been spent hiding from the upper 80s, things are finally starting to cool down around here. No better outfit for breakfast out with my family than a sweater and scarf – even cold enough for a coat!

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll recognize the sweater I’m wearing from a recent thrift haul (see the post here). The scarf I picked up years ago at a thrift shop and it continues to be one of my favorite fall scarves ever. The coat is my FAVORITE; it is so comfy and versatile and I always get so many compliments on it. For reference, I’m wearing a size XS coat and still have plenty of room.
