Dressing for Thanksgiving

Sometimes half the fun of holiday parties is getting dressed for them. I love an excuse to dress up, pull out my favorite pumps, or just to wear that glitzy necklace. However, if showing up to dinner in rhinestones and leopard isn’t your jam, I’ve got a few ideas for you too. Outfit 1 (GLAM): … Continue reading

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape

I have really grown to adore Thanksgiving over the last couple years. It feels like a time to slow down, enjoy incredible food and even better people. I remember growing up and seeing my grandparents and magazines flood their tables with elaborate decorations and place settings. Well, now I’m 23 and I don’t own a … Continue reading

DIY Pom Pom Wreath

I have been making pom poms for weeks. I would grab my yarn and a pair of scissors and plop down on the couch and mindlessly make pom poms as I watched the Food Network. Five small balls of yarn later I finally had enough to make my pom pom wreath. I wanted to add … Continue reading

Aztec Print

I am happy to report that we are over a week into November and fall is still going strong! A coat is nearly mandatory, but I can still get away with exposed skin so I’m going to call it a win. No snow yet! Since fall is still here I can continue to play around … Continue reading

DIY Mason Jar Sconce

A couple weeks ago I came across a pin on Pinterest of this project. Of course, no tutorial to be found. After the hubby did a little hunting he found one that we read through first. Hopefully our photos are detailed enough to help you replicate the project too! We used a piece of wood … Continue reading

Get Cozy

Over the weekend we got to work on a little project for the house (check back later this week to see it!). I didn’t want to wear work clothes for this project so I dressed in something simple and cozy. I got this plaid button up at Target last spring for $8! It was fabulous. … Continue reading
