what to wear to thanksgiving

I'm so excited for this time of year - Thanksgiving!! I love getting together with family and friends and celebrate our blessings. This time of year is such a fun time. It such a refreshing time of year.

I found all these adorable outfits on Pinterest. You can find my pins in the tab above, on my fall favorites board. These are some great looks for an all day food fest! 

The hubs and I are headed to vacay with some friends! We will be back after the holiday!

I'm so thankful for all of you! Enjoy this time with friends and family.

The shopping event I held at Ruby Rouge on Friday was a blast. I invited a ton of my co-workers to get ready for the holiday season. We found some great looks for now, cute sweaters and boots, and details dresses for holiday. It was a great success and I can't wait to host another event.

green jeans

sweater: J.Crew | jeans: J.Crew | scarf: J.Crew Factory | booties: Old Navy last worn here | watch: Michael Kors | sunnies: Ralph | earrings: J.Crew (old)

I don't know about you, but I love my colored denim. What girl doesn't love denim, first of all, and then to add color - genius! I love busting out my bright green jeans during the fall and winter months. The crisp color brings any outfit from drab to fab cheesy right!? 

What do you like to wear during the chillier months to still feel fresh and cool?

peplum lace

top: Loft | blouse: Express | jeans: Madewell last seen here | booties: Target last seen here | sunnies: Karen Walker | earrings: Buckle 

There is just something about a crisp white button down. I love the clean lines and the classic appeal. The gorgeous lace peplum top I found last year at the Loft and fell in love with it instantly. I paired with boyfriend jeans with the crisp and girly look to balance it all out. 

Are you excited about the event this Friday! See you at Ruby Rouge from 1pm - 4pm!

ruby rouge event

I loved getting to host a shopping event at Ruby Rouge this weekend! Bree who owns Ruby Rouge donated 10% of the events earning to Harvesters! Isn't that sweet!!

My gorgeous grandma was able to stop by and shop for a little bit! Do  you see where I get my fashion sense?

I showed off my favorite pieces with the caitlin's picks signs around the store. That way everyone could know what pieces were my favorite! And yes it was hard to pick - everything in the store is adorable!

I had a blast helping Emily pick out just the right pieces to try on!

How adorable is Cort in this printed cardigan, I'm obsessed!!

Emily tried on a gorgeous lace number for holiday. We were talking fit and loving the eye lash lace. 

Cort was feeling extra sassy in her printed cardigan - so naturally I did my best roar impression. :)

Emily and I went through her "yes's" to see what great pieces she found. She got some incredible pieces for every day and work. Oh and some great Christmas presents too!

Jennifer and I were discussing how to wear the cute crochet hats - so they would not fly off her head.  She was totally cracking me up!

A huge thank you to everyone who came out to my event on Saturday at Ruby Rouge! Bree, the owner of Ruby Rouge donated 10% of the events sales to Harvesters! 

If you would like to shop with me I will be at Ruby Rouge on Friday, November 15th from 1pm - 4pm! I'm hosting another great event!

A special thank you to Kevin (my husband) for being such great support and photographer, I couldn't have done it without you:)

I had such a blast at Ruby Rouge! The pieces they have are just too cute! And the price point you just can't beat! If you are wanting advise for how to shop or spice up your wardrobe send me an email at and I would love to talk to you.
