What to Wear to Thanksgiving Dinner

Just the other day one of my friends posted this quote on instagram "I never understand why we get so dressed up for Thanksgiving and don't go anywhere, just walking around the kitchen looking fly as ever," and I couldn't agree more. Every year, everyone in my family gets all dressed up and for what... just to move around the kitchen and dining room to eat. I LOVE to dress up, but I also go for comfort on Thanksgiving. Because we all know it's the worst, when your parents start to feel snug and it's only been round one.  My goal for Thanksgiving is to be comfortable & presentable. This cold shoulder dress is the perfect solution!

Wedding Wednesday: a Night Out with Forevermark Diamonds at J. Albert Jewelers

I was so flattered when Forevermark Diamonds reached out and invited me and my fiancé to attend one of their events at J.Albert Jewelers in Fairfield, CT. But first, I have to say it; thank goodness I was engaged prior to this event or else my {instagram fiancé} would have had a night out with a disgruntled girlfriend! After all, everyone knows diamonds are a girl's best friend. Besides trying on Red Carpet pieces worn by Rachel McAdams, complimentary tasty treats and massages, the best part of the event was 10% off the night's proceeds were given to the environmental education non-profit SoundWater.

Three Reasons to LOVE Bell Sleeves

I am definitely obsessed with three things right now: blanket scarves, lace up heels and bell sleeves. This is by far one of my favorite looks because I can't get enough of burgundy and blue as a fall color combo. Did you know, Pantone released their Fall colors of the year for 2016 and both were on there. These shoes are just the right shade of plum meets burgundy. They foster my purple color obsession to be age appropriate. Often times, I associate purple as a younger color, since it's often a fan favorite for my students.

Bell Sleeves & Lace up Heels

Birthdays are the best days. I say this because my family has hooked me up! They gifted me some gorgeous lace-up heels {shop the exact pair in the link below (they are LESS than $100!)}. Can we talk about how obsessed I am with lace-up heels?! I mean what's not to love. Additionally, I was also gifted some fabulous new makeup and gift cards. This girl definitely has some shopping to do. Be sure to comment below if you would be interested in a fall favorites or make up tutorial.
