How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? We were at my little brother’s house which was great for many reasons – turkey, dressing, desserts of all kinds, football, gossip. You name it we had it or talked about it. I had on a sweater dress that I Polyvore’d but changed because the weather was beautiful. I lost the cardigan about two hours into the day. It was just too nice and warm.

J Crew Miller High-Heel Boots, Brown

These are my “Tim Gunn” jeans. The pair I bought to be able to meet him. I had them altered in length a few weeks ago for heels and they are amazing. They have just the right amount of stretch and accommodated all my Thanksgiving eating without an issue. I was comfortable all day.

Today, I was up by 4:30 a.m. thinking about going to Anthropologie at 6 but I just couldn’t bring myself to actually leave the house even though it is only 10 minutes down the road from me. I did get online and ordered the Fire Ants Maxi Dress. I’ve never tried it on so I’m hoping the size 6 will fit.

My in-laws took us to lunch for Husband’s birthday which is Sunday. He was actually born on Thanksgiving Day way back in ’69. Again, gorgeous mid-70 degree weather decided my outfit.

I hoped you got some good deals, if you braved the shopping madness today.

Have a Great Evening!

So here are some IRL pics from my last post of recent purchases.

J Crew Bici Tee – Size S – I usually take a Medium in the tees but have started to size down with different materials.

Sequined/Beaded spokes

Ann Taylor Tiered Shirt with Grosgrain Trim in Smokey Mauve Yarn, Size MP – A little fitted through the bust but I’ll be wearing a cardi or blazer with this.

J Crew Marled Pullover Hoodie – Size S – I love this hoodie! I can’t wait for the weather to get even remotely cool so I can wear it. It’s so comfy and soft. I missed out on the Marled sweater last year and still regret it. It’s a little tight in the arms for me (but most tops are in a Small) but the Medium was too big. I don’t plan on layering much under this hoodie so the Small is fine.

J Crew Plaid Boyfriend Cardigan – Size Small – There were no Mediums left so I grabbed a Small. Again the tight arms thing but I was not leaving the store without this sweater.

Anthropologie Alma Mater Blazer – Size 6 – Worn with Frances Cami. I love the texture, fit and contrast of this blazer. FREAKING CUTE!

J Crew Bi-Stretch Wool Minnie – Size 6 – I really like the Minnie pants and will be wearing this with a long cardi or sweater and boots.

Have a great evening!

I want to apologize. I have not been in the mood for blogging. September always seems to be the one month I can’t get it together and everything just sucks. But we’re half-way through, right? So forgive me if I don’t finish out the month strong. Ok?

Here’s what I recently purchased when “attempting” to make some returns at J Crew. You all know how that goes right? Especially on “new roll-out” day?

I returned these.

(I returned this because I love my Alma Mater blazer from Anthropologie. I also recently purchased the J Crew Outlet version of the Eden blazer in Iris and have the Wool Schoolboy Blazer in Redwood that I have yet to wear.)

(I bought this in Mink also and kept that one. $59.99 in store)

And brought home these.

Bici Tee (very cute, spokes are sequined)

Then I stopped by Ann Taylor to see if they had the matching belt to my Perfect Pumps in Porcini. They did.

And I also bought the Tiered Shirt with Grosgrain Trim in Smokey Mauve Yarn to get 25% off. I really wanted another pair of their Perfect Pumps but don’t need them so I held off.

Have a great day!

P.S. – I had a “mini-stop” at the J Crew Outlet on Sunday and saw they had the “Paris Tee” the “All Spice” Tee (from this post) and the Flower Sketch Tee in Olive Moss. All direct from the retail store and not an “outlet” version. I don’t recall pricing, sorry, but there was a % off all tees.
