Looks & Life Lately {9}

I can't believe that as I'm typing this our little touches around the house of Thanksgiving have already been packed up as the Christmas stuff is taken out.  We mainly go straight from fall to Christmas but I couldn't resist a couple specific Thanksgiving touches.


When we arrived into Long Island a couple weeks ago for our friend's wedding a few weeks ago we set up camp to grab drinks and lunch while watching the Penn State game, of course.


Arriving at work to see that Mom and I are matching with one of our many matching items - leopard loafers.


It's hard to resist a nice bright outfit every now and again amongst the neutrals of this season.  I sure do miss looking in my closet and seeing row after row of bright.


I finally took the time to get some new glasses - long overdo.  Like a year or more overdo.  Loving finally having a bigger and new pair.


Walks with my little lady on the trails by my parent's house this time of the year always make me laugh.  They live right behind a farm so signs like below are just another day in the neighborhood.


A date night with the hubby and cheersing to him and a new raise and accomplishments at work.


Food bank gathering.


We've been going with fall flower types around the house but it's hard to pass up some white roses every now and again.  Classic look.


Grabbing dinner with some of our best friends before everyone else got into town for Derek's 30th birthday celebration weekend.


The girls enjoying a relaxing night at the basement bar - Sotherden's Saloon.


An overflowing shopping cart of decor and wrapping supplies at Target must mean that the holiday season is upon us.


Tis the season for lazy couch cuddles.


And just because she's my favorite… Been loving bar time AND walks with Stella.


Don't forget to enter this $325 Nordsttrom gift card giveaway.  There's a lot of Christmas gifts you can buy with that!

  11. I went shopping yesterday and for some reason I was drawn to the blacks and grays, which I already have so much of! I stopped myself from buying anything in those colors because I was like, I will NOT wear dark colors all winter! I WILL wear some brighter things! Glad we think alike! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Christina!!
