Happy Monday, gang! Happy November! Yes, the holiday season has arrived. Are you ready? Gift Guide season has arrived too. Many brands (and bloggers) are sharing their must-have gifts every direction you turn. We just might run out of steam before Thanksgiving arrives. The times they are a changing and so we must too. But this girl has put off gift guides as I’m enjoying Georgia sports at the moment. Okay, so I’m behind on a few things. If you hadn’t heard, The Georgia Bulldogs are ranked #1, and the Atlanta Braves just might clinch the World Series. Lots of excitement in this neck of the woods, although Sunday night’s game was a heartbreaker. Our bats were hot, but our pitchers struggled on the mound with the final score 9-5 Astros. The series is now 3-2 Braves. Onto game 6 back in my old stomping grounds – Houston. GO BRAVES! No matter if I’m watching football or baseball, it’s fall sweater style this time of year. And I’m loving every minute of it.
If you are like me, you can. not. believe it’s November. November?! There are 24 days until Thanksgiving, 54 days until Christmas and a mere 60 days ’til we usher in 2022. It’s time to think about the holidays in earnest and not just gift-giving. Holiday decorating and holiday meal planning is officially underway. This Thursday, I’m partnering with several bloggers to share our Thanksgiving tablescapes. What fun! This little exercise got me in the mood to think about Christmas and New Year’s Eve tablescapes. Now I’m flipping through cookbooks too. Love this time of year. And I love me my fall sweater style while I’m plotting and planning. How about you?
Fall sweater style never looked so good as in today’s ootd. Cashmere sweaters are always a favorite of mine. I thank my mother for introducing me to cashmere many moons ago. This cashmere poncho from Ann Taylor doesn’t disappoint. This poncho silhouette looks more like a sweater, in my humble opinion, complete with a turtleneck, elbow sleeves, and dropped shoulders. It has a nice slouchy fit that’s easy to throw on over a shirt or a sweater. Plus, it can go to work or the weekend with ease. Today, I chose a pair of faux leather pants from Ann Taylor that are machine washable and fit like a dream. The faux leather pant comes in regular, curvy, petite, and tall. An oversized white shirt from Banana Republic ties back to the white platform sneakers that give this ootd the perfect casual chic vibe.
