Mad About Plaid

photo.jpeg

I find my love of plaid ironic since I spent eight years of school in it and practically begging to get out. But recently, I’ve been obsessed with all things plaid, especially skirts. Anytime I go shopping now, I inadvertently fall in love with another plaid skirt. It’s the perfect pattern for both fall and winter. And with multiple colors in most prints, the pairings are versatile and endless. I went for a slight monochrome look with an orange sweater and orange details on my shoes. But a navy sweater would have looked just as cute. Check out some of the other plaid skirts I’m crushing on below. Continue reading “Mad About Plaid”

Shop Small Business Saturday With Local Stores I’m Obsessed With

current obsessions Small Business Saturday

Small boutiques are my favorite places to shop. I love the unique clothes different stores have and that you can’t buy them at bigger, National chain stores. Clothing from small boutiques feels like wearing something special. Not only are their pieces cute, but they won’t be worn by everyone. So when someone asks when you got a dress or a skirt or a pair of shoes, you tell them and it’s like sharing a little secret. I’ve always been drawn to these kinds of stores so when I’m traveling, I often like finding one to take a couple pieces back with me. It’s like taking a little bit of the city with me back home. These boutiques are also often locally owned, shopping in them helps the owners and their business and helps to keep money following in the community rather than to some faceless CEO across the country. Keeping the local community thriving by shopping small is the whole reason behind Small Business Saturday. And to honor that (and some of my favorite places to shop), here are four boutiques I’ve found and love. And you can buy from every single one of them (even if you aren’t local!).

Classic and Cozy

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away! My mouth is watering from the anticipated food and I’m so excited to spend time with my family. This look is perfect for a cozy Thanksgiving dinner. The chenille sweater is so soft and warm, perfect for staying in all day. And this skirt is classic and bound to get you compliments from your whole family before dinner. These boots are one of my favorite pair; they may look high, but they’re super comfy to walk around in. Plus, being over the knee, they keep your legs warm. Bonus, right? And I love this stunning red color. It’s a pop that’s perfect for fall! If you need me, I’ll be cozied up on the couch with my dog and a pumpkin cupcake!

The leaves are changing and it’s finally starting to look like fall. Plus, the weather is starting to cool down, which means it’s time for oversized, cozy knit sweaters. Lately, I’ve been curling up in warm sweaters and working on my latest book. It’s coming along, slowly but surely. My second mentorship starts Monday and I’m excited to get professional feedback on my work. And while hulled up in my office I’ll be cozied up in a warm sweater working on my first bestseller.
