Off White Sweater with a Pop of Color

Happy Wednesday! I am still in shock that Thanksgiving is tomorrow because this year is flown by! Tomorrow I will be spending it with my family here in Texas and enjoying all the yummy food. I am so thankful for so much in my life and so grateful to be able to celebrate. What are your plans for this Thanksgiving? 

So, this outfit is more simple but with the pop of color just makes me love it anymore. You can never go wrong with a great off-white sweater. In my opinion, it is so classy and can be dressed up or down. I really like it paired with ripped jeans because it gives that edgy classy look. I paired it with a soft pattern pair of pumps and this bright Gianni Bini clutch! This bag really pulls this whole outfit together. This would be perfect for a Thanksgiving outfit because it is comfy but looks fabulous!

I hope yall enjoyed my look! As always thanks for stopping by and if you like this look, shop below. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Talk to yall soon:)

Cranberry & Leopard

Happy Thursday! I am so happy it almost the weekend again. I am ready for a friends wedding and relaxing the rest of the time (which most likely will not happen lol). I still can’t believe next week is Thanksgiving, this year will be over in a blink of an eye!

I wanted to share this super cute outfit that really tells a lot about me this season. As I am sure most of you can tell by previous posts, that cranberry is by far my favorite color this season. I think I tend to lean more on the red tones ( I think because of my hair color).  I love how this look has a couple statement details that mesh very well together for this fall season. You can really dress it up or down but overall very comfortable. Let me know what you think of this look and as always thank you for stopping by.

  • 1 cup of goldfish ( I like the baby ones)
  • 1 cup of buggles (original)

  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 4 tablespoons of season all salt
  • 8 tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce ( the seasonings vary depending on how much flavor you like.) I tend to add more after I have made it for the first time)

  3. add the seasoning to the butter then stir.
  4. Once you have all that mixed together gradually pour all your dry ingredients into the pan.
