Here is a comfy, cozy post Thanksgiving look for you. I’m finally allowing myself to get into the Christmas spirit now that Thanksgiving has come and had its day. I got to enjoy the day with The Fiance’s side of the family, but missed my side just a bit. Sharing is so overrated. Just kidding.

Now about this outfit. So much texture! So much pizzazz with the sparkles and the color of these jeans (The Fiance has been calling me Red Pants all morning)! I’m loving this look mainly because it is so warm and comfortable, but still very styling, in my personal opinion. Can you believe that this is a sweatshirt? It is so soft inside…and it has sequins sewed into little polka dot clusters. Love. Love. Love.

I’m ready to cozy up on the couch and do some online shopping. Because you can never have enough sweaters, right? Right?

Cozy Leopard

Who snagged a cardigan from the little girls department of Target to be like everyone else on Instagram? This girl.

I am so glad that I did too. It is so warm and so cozy, and I might be a little bit biased, but it DOES NOT look like a little girls cardigan. It definitely is long enough – shockingly long enough in the sleeves too. Just a good reminder that great things can be found in unexpected place.

You can’t go wrong with such a classic print. There is this great pin going around Pinterest that is from Jenna Lyons, president and creative director of J.Crew. It says, “As far as I am concerned, leopard is a neutral.”

I’m with you, Jenna. 100%.

Casual Weekend

This is one of the few weekends in November and January that the Fiance and I are traveling, so I am excited for a chill and easy weekend, especially since I seem to have caught a cold and might need some couch time to recover. I made the Fiance take me out for pancakes this morning at The Original Pancake House, and we shared some pancakes (his: banana and hers: bacon) and downed some coffee. He’s off to a nerd card tournament, and I am going thrift shopping with my best friend, B.

This outfit works well for both pancakes and shopping, and it will keep me warm, as the temperatures are dropping here in Indiana.

Cheers to a great weekend!

Tough on Family Fun

Holy moly, this weekend has been jam-packed! Lots of activity yesterday (chicken minis, wedding dress shopping, lunch, more shopping, dinner, and Gravity) and more today! My parents came down for a picnic with my dad’s parents and sister, and The Fiance and I joined them for a little family fun. It was a gorgeous fall day (though chilly at times), so I am glad I had my “tough guy” motorcycle/bomber-style jacket to keep me warm. I wanted an outfit that I could run around in and not be worried about sitting like a lady, since we did a lot of laughing, playing with the dog, hiking and wading in some streams, and eating.

Pretty great day, and now I am going to go enjoy some football to finish out this Sunday.

Labor Day with Mumford!

Happy Labor Day, everyone!

I hope everyone is able to enjoy their day with family and/or friends (or just sitting on the couch surfing the internet because you don’t have to work…because I do that on holidays from work too). Also, does anyone say surfing the internet any more?

Chad, my fiance, and I are headed to the Mumford & Sons concert tonight in Indianapolis with his parents, and I could not be more excited about it. They are such a cool band, and we get to listen to them perform outside at a neat venue (where I saw my first concert…the Spice Girls with my aunt, such a cool kid).  Anyways, I wanted a cool, concert-going outfit, and just scored these red jeans yesterday (I know, behind the times) while thrifting. I love red with black and white/tan, such a statement.

What is everyone else up to today?
