Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone! I hope you’re off celebrating with friends and loved ones. This is my favorite holiday of the year because our family has a long tradition of getting together at my grandparent’s house in Poughkeepsie, New York. My extended family is huge–especially on my mom’s side–and it’s the one time of the year where we are able to slow down and spend time together.
My mom is one of six siblings and I have 21 first cousins on that side of my family alone. This doesn’t include our second cousins and their husbands and kids who also come to celebrate with us. Needless to say, there are so many people at Thanksgiving, I still sit at the kids table, but it’s a day our family looks forward to all year and we love every minute.
Since I’ve lived in LA almost ten years (hard to believe!), I have not been able to make it back east for every turkey day. Each year I do have the opportunity to make it, I count down the days. This year, my hubby and pup are here too and we can’t wait to see everyone.
Sharing a holiday look today for anyone looking for any last-minute outfit ideas. I love the color blush–especially during the winter because it tends to look good on all skin tones and I love that it’s simple and girly. I scooped up this lace shirt from Zara at a steal–for less than $30. I paired it with a nude tulle skirt that I’ve had in my closet for a couple of years now. It’s one of my favorite pieces because it easily dresses up any look and it’s nice and comfy.
If you’re as excited for Black Friday shopping as I am, I’ve gathered a sneak peek at some of my favorite sales I’ve seen so far below. While I’ve never been one of those girls who goes out to shop all night, I absolutely love snuggling up with my iPad and shopping amazing deals online. This has become my Thanksgiving guilty pleasure and I can’t wait.
