What to Wear: Thanksgiving

Camel Blazer

LOFT long sleeve sweater
Gap jacket
Lands End jeans
Gap ballet flat
FOSSIL satchel handbag
FOSSIL bracelet watch
Fossil earrings

Well, it's almost here!  It's Thanksgiving week and although everyone has much bigger things to worry about, like what dish they're bringing to dinner, or if their turkey will turn out, we can't forget about what to wear.  I love this classic, preppy look for Thanksgiving.  Layers are always good, especially if you're not sure whether your host likes the thermostat cranked up or turned way down.  Flats are always easy to remove if you need to take your shoes off, and a good pair of stretchy jeans is a must! 

This year I am so very thankful for each one of you who take the time to follow my blog, those of you who hire me to help revamp your closet and wardrobe, who ask me to come shopping with you all around town, refer me to your friends, and buy gift certificates for your loved ones.  Not to mention those of you who hire me to speak at your wonderful events.  I have much to be thankful for, so thanks for making this dream of mine a reality!!

I know leggings are all the rage these days, so here's a great casual weekend look to sport those leggings.  I also threw in another popular trend, the menswear inspired flannel shirt to keep things nice and cozy.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Great Jackets from Gap!

Great Jackets from Gap!

This season we're seeing lots of fun jackets that can be worn as sweaters or as a jacket, depending on the weather where you live.  It's a fresh look that adds a little variety and spice to the cardigans and blazers you may normally use to layer in the cold months.  Gap as a bunch of great options right now.  Here is a sampling of my favorites, have a great week!

Color Blocking

Black Jeans

Block sweater
black skinny jeans
tall boots
Fossil jewelry
chunky necklace

Color blocking continues to be a big trend for fall and winter and I've been swooning over this particular color blocked sweater from J. Crew Factory for awhile. I'm really digging black on black lately and think this outfit looks very city chic put together.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 

By the way, don't you love this bracelet from Fossil?  I think it's going on my Christmas list! Speaking of Christmas, Real Life. Real Style gift certificates make great gifts!  Email me at,, and I'll take care of the rest.

Cozy Classic

Cozy Classic

j crew shirt
slim fit jeans
black boots
post earrings

It's that time of  the year to haul out the cozy, dare I say wintery (don't know if that's really a word) wear.  I love this look for all my classic dressers out there.  Each piece can definitely stand the test of time and last for years to come. Have fun getting cozy!
