who enjoyed their thanksgiving feast as much as i did? maybe i savored my turkey fixings a lit-le too much if the number staring at me from the bathroom scale is any indication… i swear those mashed potatoes were worth it at the time, and the pecan pie too. let’s not forget the whipped cream. but i have my work cut out for me this week. maybe next. it’s time to get healthy meal plans back in the rotation and cork that wine bottle. it was a lovely long weekend spent with two out of three kiddos home with us. they helped trim the christmas tree, and i finagled with decorations. let the christmas music play!
to get into the festive spirit, i’m wearing a black watch plaid blazer from Talbots trimmed in velvet last seen here. it’s paired with a tissue tee turtleneck from J.Crew that’s a lighter version of the traditional turtleneck and a great layering piece. dark rinse skinny jeans from Ann Taylor, modern loafers from Everlane, and hobo handbag finish off this simple but chic ootd that’s perfect for so many occasions. i wore this outfit to sunday brunch at one of our favorite restaurants Five and Ten. and, yes, i skipped the waffles with praline pecans. but they sorely tempted me that’s for certain.
my peloton is beckoning me, ladies, but have a wonderful day!

my favorite brands for classic style
Gap: founded by the Fisher family in 1969 Gap went from selling levi’s and lp records to private-label merchandise in 1974. there are several brands underneath the Gap Family: Gap, Old Navy, and my two favorites Banana Republic and Athleta.
Everlane: this is a new brand with a fabulous online presence and two brick and mortar stores on either coast. there are quite a few key pieces i like from this brand. but their cashmere and loafers are top-notch.
