How to Style a Sweater Dress

Happy Thanksgiving week! 

We are finally having winter weather around here...yesterday was freezing! This LOFT sweater dress was perfect for the cold weather (so was a Starbucks latte!). 

Today I'm styling a sweater dress two different ways. It's all about accessorizing
First of all, let's talk about this LOFT sweater dress...

Sweater dresses are a big trend this fall and winter and I've been searching for the perfect one. I finally found it when I saw my friend, Jo-Lynne style it! These dresses are SO POPULAR and are going fast! I went to LOFT to buy the deep ruby color but they only had my size in gray. Fortunately, I ended up loving it! 

This stylish and comfy dress is 40% off right now with code TURKEYDAY

For my first look, I accessorized with my White House Black Market leopard waist belt and leopard Coach bag. Wearing a waist belt over a dress is very flattering, especially on curvy figures.

What to Wear for Thanksgiving

Hello friends! 

Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week already!? I'm not quite prepared for the craziness of the holiday seasons, yet! I love this time of year, though, and I'm looking forward to getting together with family and friends (and for good food!!). 

In today's post, I'm sharing a casual and stylish Thanksgiving outfit. I love dressing up around the holidays, but on Thanksgiving Day, I'm relaxing with family and pigging out! I like to dress casual for Thanksgiving, without sacrificing fashion. 

A sweater, jeans, and boots are the perfect outfit choice for me. I bought this LOFT animal print sweater earlier in the fall. I love the navy and burgundy colors and the fit is very flattering. It was available online for awhile but unfortunately, I didn't get around to posting it in time (ugh). You may be able to find this exact sweater in stores still. If not, I found a very similar sweater with polka dots online that I also love!

I just purchased this two tone necklace from White House Black Market. It was on sale for $14.99! I added this statement necklace to spice up the look and I love how it turned out. Since this necklace was on clearance, it is not available online. You can go to your nearest WHBM store to shop this necklace and other accessories!

Styling Burgundy, Leopard and Gold

Happy Monday! 

Today I'm styling a fall/winter outfit featuring my favorite color, burgundy, with leopard and gold accents. This chic look is perfect for the upcoming holidays!

This leopard print Coach satchel was an early birthday gift from my mother-in-law. It is absolutely gorgeous. I am so excited to be featuring it on the blog today! I love how it looks against the burgundy color of this blouse and booties. I also like the gold accents on the bag that pair beautifully with gold jewelry. This satchel is very roomy and features thin pockets on the front and back (perfect for items you need to find quickly when on the run!). As I've said before, leopard print is so versatile and matches any color. You can even be daring and mix other patterns with this purse. I'll definitely be styling it with plaid or stripes in the future! 

This bag is available at Coach Factory stores. There are also different styles of bags in this same print! Check out your nearest outlet store asap- this is a great Christmas gift!! 

If you aren't near an outlet, this adorable crossbody bag in the same print is available online. I also love this domed satchel in a similar leopard print!

I've had this red H&M v-neck blouse for years and I continue to get a lot of wear out of it! 
It is light and flowy and the color is beautiful! I also like how the buttons are hidden, making it unique. This blouse is slightly longer in the back, which is very trendy right now. I've paired it here with jeans, but I've worn it before with dress pants for work. It works well both ways! 

This blouse is old, but I found a VERY similar version at H&M

Casual Autumn Fashion: Comfy Vest and Riding Boots

Hello friends! 
We are having the most gorgeous week here in the Philly area. It is unseasonably warm at 70 degrees! The autumn landscape and the vibrant leaves are absolutely stunning. The fall season reminds me of the beauty of God's creation every day!

Today's look is the perfect casual autumn outfit...great for fall activities like pumpkin picking, hayrides, football games, church and school events, etc. 

This LOFT striped tee is adorable and a good layering shirt! I added my olive green vest for extra warmth and I love how it looks over the stripes. This vest is from Costco. If you are a member there, browse the clothing can find some great deals on cute items! This vest is lined with faux fur inside and is reversible. You can shop a similar vest at Old Navy (in basil pesto color).

I love how this plaid blanket scarf ties the look together. I featured this SheIn Classic Plaid Fringe Scarf in a post a few weeks back. I absolutely love the colors and am finding that it goes with everything! It is on sale for $14.50...can't beat that price! 

Check out this post for tips on how to tie a blanket scarf.
