Thank you to Irisie for partnering on this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Since it's Thanksgiving Week, I wanted to share a few pieces that you can easily wear for a Thanksgiving dinner. Whether you're celebrating with friends or family, this plaid blazer and these OTK boots (similar here + here) are always key pieces to wear for the holidays. If you're a sweater type of person for Thanksgiving dinners, you can pair this blazer with a navy, black, or grey tunic and a pair of leggings for comfort.
Below, I also wanted to go ahead and include a holiday gift guide for the print lovers. You can shop everything by clicking on the image!
There's something so appealing about glitter and gold when it comes to dressing up for the holidays.
It's always a combo that I gravitate towards this time of year because it always brings me back to a festive state-of-mind.
Never in my college years have I ever hosted a Friendsgiving nor attended one before.
With that being said, my college housemates and I decided to host one for our last year together.
I can hardly believe just how close we are to Thanksgiving. It's finally hitting me today, as we're starting a new week, and I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be hosting a Friendsgiving with my housemates this year. If you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram, I went ahead and shared some behind-the-scenes from the Friendsgiving shoot yesterday.
Hear me when I say this: I've been living in this Henri Bendel sweatshirt for quite some time now.
It's chic, emphasis on comfortable, and true to the fact that I am in indeed, a #bendelgirl.
Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Especially with that extra hour... thanks Daylight Savings Time! #blessed
You know what I'm not plaid about? The price of this blazer. I mean...
Now that Halloween is out of the way, the season of plaid and all things Thanksgiving is upon us.
Over Fall Break, my sister and I took a roadtrip to Blue Ridge Parkway and stayed near Rumbling Bald Resort at Lake Lure. We were able to enjoy some spa time, a fancy dinner with a sunset view, and shoot some photos down at the beautiful lake.
Honestly, give me an excuse to wear navy blue velvet booties on Halloween and I'm sold.
I mentioned in this post that I'd be yet, another pun, for Halloween this year. So alas, I'm finally sharing my FRENCH TOAST costume that I'll be wearing tonight.
If you're a new reader, then I'll gladly rehash Halloween festivities here at UNC-Chapel Hill. Basically, the town of Chapel Hill closes down Franklin Street tonight and families, college students, and tons of people in the area and all over the state come to Franklin Street to celebrate. It's always crowded and quite an interesting spectacle. Especially the costume ideas that people come up with. Just picture it as one big major block party.
Even though I have classes on Tuesday, I'm still going to make the most of my senior year Halloween with my best friends / roommates. So here's one big (French) toast to my last Halloween on Franklin Street!
We're planning lots of fun things tonight, so be sure to follow along on Snapchat (bygracelee) or Instagram.
Hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!
P.S. I'd love to hear your costume choices this year in the comments below!
Wearing: top: Forever 21 (similar here) | skirt: Forever 21 | booties: Steve Madden | scarf: Urban Outfitters | beret: here | lipstick: Revlon's 'Fire and Ice' |
I'll also be wearing these earrings!
