I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving spent with loved ones, whether it be your family or good friends, and copious amounts of food.

I was fortunate enough to spend a week with my family. It was the perfect opportunity to sing Olivia Newton-John classics, window shop, and watch “The Real”, “The Voice” and “Dancing with the Stars” at full marathon speed with my mom, and actually run at full marathon speed with my dad on several occasions. Ran almost 11 miles last week! All of my siblings were home, and we got to celebrate with my cousins that I rarely see. So much fun! My siblings and I are spread across I-10, so I treasure any moment that we get to spend together.

This time also allowed me to thank God for my many blessings. I focused on all of the good in my life. Thank you so much to you for the continued support, too!!

Now, for the fun outfit details!

Love this bib necklace from Baublebar $68 (free shipping and 15% off your first purchase)! It is the statement piece to bring an outfit from 0 to 100, really quickly. The plaid top is from Nordstrom Rack $24.97 and is long enough to cover the bottom. A must for leather leggings.

For long-lasting color, I filled my lips with the Sephora $13 waterproof lip liner in Rose and topped it with a splash of wine using the Mulberry lipstick from Bite Beauty $24. I kept the eyes natural with my favorite Naked palette from Urban Decay $54.

Nordstrom has the fall over-the-knee boots that every girl needs. The stylish Vince Camuto Karita boots are 30% off right now at $118.26 and free of shipping costs. The soft leather is of great quality, and the stretchy material in the back makes it easy to put on and take off the boots. This military green jacket is so comfortable and effortless over any ensemble. I got it at Wolfgang Clothing, the hippest boutique in Five Points, last year. I knew it would be a classic piece for every fall. Similar Items ASOS Forever 21 On sale for $23.12.

And, these Forever 21 (faux) leather leggings that look oh so real? Bought them a few years ago, and they are back in stores. If you are like me and want the look of luxe leather, but can’t fathom spending $100 on a pair, then these are for you!! Only $12.90.
