Rustic Travel Pieces

I am so excited that it is officially Thanksgiving time! I’ve been using my time off to cook, bake, workout, spend time with my husband and scope out all those Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals coming up this weekend. See my deals section on the right side for all the goodies. I already have my eye out on a beautiful cognac travel bag from Sole Society (top). As busy traveling season arrives (and I get ready to head to Charlotte and Milwaukee) to visit family I’m thinking about packing in style. These travel bags are a great addition to my regular travel size luggage (also Cognac from the Jessica Simpson line) and did I mention they’re beautiful!

It’s such a fun time of year! After baking the turkey, ham, and a few side dishes I am thrilled about the return of Gilmore Girls on Friday! It’s going to be a wonderful four day weekend. Giving thanks for my many blessings and all my blog visitors tonight.

Here are some other beauties from Sole Society that I love:

Well, the rain kept us indoors today (not intended) but hey, I finally got some shots of myself in my new clothes (thanks to my husband)! I wanted to feature this new dress I bought for the holidays. I’ve recently purchased so much burgundy this fall and it’s such a beautiful color. I’ve been on the hunt for dresses for Thanksgiving gatherings, Christmas parties, and even to wear on our up coming trip to Charlotte and Milwaukee to visit my parents and in-laws. My favorite things about this dress is that it’s simple, elegant, and semi-formal. This dress did need accessorizing but you can easily change the type of look using different jewelry. The trench coat is from Bar III and it’s timeless and versatile. I can’t wait to try it on with some other dresses as well.

I’m so excited to be working with Francesca’s! I find all sorts of treasures here – and already own so many of their dresses. This post wouldn’t be complete without dropping in some gems from this store too. Here are some other dresses (BOGO 50% off  sale now on dresses) and outfits I like for the holidays!:

Tis’ the season to bring out ankle boots, colorful infinity scarves, and a hot cup of tea! Fall brings such great things not to mention pumpkin spiced everything! These boots are the first to add to my fall collection and I absolutely love them! I packed them on my recent trip to Calistoga/Napa and they were so comfortable and cute while moving from winery to winery. Above are a few other styles I love! #BootieGameStrong
