We had a chilly but sunny Thanksgiving and I’ve been waiting to wear my Leather Pocket Mini-Dress from Madewell. I paired it with a Light Gray Tissue Turtleneck Tee from a few years ago since my Black color looked dingy. I added Black Assets Leggings and my lovely Harper Leather Boots. I was comfortable all day and had plenty of room to hide the Thanksgiving Food Baby.
The Boy and I goofing around.
Friday evening we went out as a family to celebrate Husband’s birthday. He had been sick all week, including his birthday and even missed out on Thanksgiving. I have on my J Crew Sample Cashmere Pants
, a Cashmere Tee
in Olive, Martina Wedges
I purchased from a JCA, and my jumping-on-the-bandwagon/better-late-than-never Lexington Blazer
in Ivory. I have been slowly finding the Lexington Blazers in the solid and tipped and I think I now have every color I want. I have also been able to find two Wool Oxford Blazers that are gorgeous
! I wish these two would come back. I added my Dorado Necklace
at the last minute and it paired wonderfully with the outfit.
I did stop at the J Crew Factory store on my way home on Thanksgiving since it opened at 6 p.m.!! It wasn’t busy at all since everyone was at Kate Spade and Coach on that side of the mall. I didn’t venture out on Black Friday as there are just too many people out-and-about. Unfortunately, one of those people was in a little bit of a hurry and pulled out in front of The Boy. He wasn’t hurt, Thank The Lord! but the truck his grand-father gave him is a total loss. We are sad only because the truck is sentimental to us but we know dad was looking down on his Grandson that day to keep him safe.
Even though I’m one of the first in line when there’s a sale or new arrivals, in the end it’s all just stuff. Nothing is more important than the time we have here on Earth with our loved ones. And, now, because The Boy has no vehicle, I get to dust off that black Chauffeur Hat and spend a little more time during the day with him than I normally would. Woo Hoo!! Which is great for me (and him but he won’t admit it) because he’ll be off to College in 6 months and then I’ll be really sad! (J Crew better have a great Fall 2014 to cheer me up!)
Have a Great Evening!
A few outfits from my recent office visits. The first outfit is one I copied exactly and originally planned to wear earlier this year but due to the cold weather changed out the bottoms that are in the second pic below. I love the color combo and the heels are one of my favorite pairs.
Sweater: Ann Taylor Extrafine Merino Wool 3/4 Sleeve Sweater, Cameo Pink
Skirt: J Crew Factory Double-Serge Cotton Pencil Skirt, Byzantine Blue
Next up are the most comfortable dress pants…EVER! I found these Cashmere pants on ebay last year and love them. They are not lined but I’m ok with that. I stayed in the Cashmere family with a Cashmere Tee. I was cozy all day in my fabulous pants.
Sweater: J Crew Cashmere Tee, Green (old)
Pants: JC Cashmere Plaid Pants (Sample, ebay)
I’m so excited for this evening as Molly from Anthromollogies is having a Holiday Event at my local Anthropologie. It’s taking all my energy to stayed focused on work and not run to my closet to figure out what I’m going to wear. I hope to Tweet some, if my phone cooperates.
Have a Great Day!
