We had our first snowfall of the season a few days ago, and it was so beautiful! Snow never lasts long in Tennessee, so I made sure to grab my winter boots and get a few outfit photos before it was too late. My go-to in snowy weather is a warm sweater, a scarf, and comfortable winter boots!

Although I’m almost done all of my Christmas shopping, I’m on my way to the city to see what Black Friday deals are out there today. I didn’t line up at 5am for anything specific this year, I just love being in the midst of all the craziness!

Bow Blouse: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s, Pants: Dynamite, Shoes: JoeyO, almost identical pumps available at Nine West (on sale!), Clutch: Old Navy (old), cute alternative here, also love this lips clutchBracelet: T.J.Maxx

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Here’s a peek at my Thanksgiving outfit this year. You can’t go wrong with a black, white, and red color palette, and tons of bows! I thought that this LC Lauren Conrad pleated bow blouse was adorable for the holidays, and I just love the peter pan collar!

I have so much to be thankful for this year. I have a loving husband, a wonderful family, and great friends. I don’t know where I would be without each and every one of them. I was lucky enough to spend Canadian Thanksgiving in October with my husband’s side of the family this year, and we had a wonderful time! Wish he could be here today to celebrate American Thanksgiving with my side of the family, but thankfully Christmas is just around the corner!

Sometimes you just need to steal from your sister’s closet in order to feel inspired. When I saw this brand new houndstooth dress hanging in my sister’s closet, I knew just how I wanted to style it. She reluctantly gave in and let me wear it before she got a chance to, but that’s what sister’s are for right? She’s also the mastermind behind all of my fabulous photos.

The weather here has been calling for lots of layers lately. Adding a collared shirt underneath a sweater dresses the look up, while adding warmth on those chilly days. I prefer to wear collared shirts with a bold print or color, because it really stands out against the neutral knit. If you aren’t one to wear a bold snake print on its own, try layering it first! How do you dress up your casual sweaters?

I’ve mentioned before that I am a huge fan of oversized comfy sweaters. I received this midi-length cardigan as a Christmas gift a few years ago and was instantly hooked! You can’t go wrong with a super soft, cozy sweater that doubles as a coat. I still can’t believe that it’s the only midi cardigan I own. I just never seem to see many sweaters this length, however this Free People cardigan at Nordstrom has definitely caught my eye!

Don’t you just love those days when the weather calls for a leather jacket, chunky scarf, and a comfy pair of jeans? I could wear those three staples every single day. It’s effortless, perfect for grabbing lunch downtown with your girlfriends, yet still looks stylish paired with your converse for running errands around town. I’m definitely getting a Kate Moss vibe from this look, which I don’t have a problem with!

Dress: Marshalls, similar dress at Forever21, Shoes: Bjorndal, similar style here, Handbag: Winners, Hat: Target, Watch: Michael Kors

Normally when I hear the word ‘tie-dye’, I think of neon t-shirts that we made when we were kids, definitely nothing fashionable, but when I saw this neutral tie-dye dress at Marshalls my mindset completely changed. This dress is so different from anything else in my wardrobe, and more versatile than I originally thought. Wear it on its own, or throw on a chunky knit over top for a completely different look!

I’m all about denim, but when it comes to colored jeans I’m always a bit hesitant. Although I bought these mint jeans last year, I never seem to pick them out when I’m styling my outfits. I noticed them in my closet yesterday, and figured I would give them a try! I’ve always liked the combination of mint and navy, and I thought that this sweater really complimented the jeans. I’ll definitely have to bring my colored denim out more often this year! How do you style your colored jeans?

I’ve always been drawn to black and white, which is probably why the majority of my wedding was black and white with pops of color. I love how classic the combination looks. So when black and white popped up all over the runways for Fall/Winter 2013-2014, I was thrilled! Now, let’s talk about these splatter pants. I was instantly drawn to these at T.J.Maxx, and they are one of my favorite finds! They can be dressed up or down, and are super comfortable! Who wouldn’t want to wear pants that feel like pajamas all day? So, the next time you are shopping and going for an animal print, try something splattered instead. I guarantee you won’t regret it!

P.S. If you are having a hard time finding splattered pieces, grab some paint and DIY it!

Although I’ve never lived in Chicago, I was raised a Blackhawks fan. My dad has been completely obsessed with the Chicago Blackhawks since his childhood and passed that on to the rest of our family. Let’s just say that 2010 and 2013 were very exciting years in our household! In order to gear up for the game last night, I figured I would show my Blackhawks pride all day. My parents brought this shirt back from the Stanley Cup Parade in Chicago this past summer, and it’s probably the most comfortable shirt I own! However, the shirt alone just wasn’t enough pride for me. Yes, I snuck into my younger brother’s closet today and stole his Blackhawks beanie, I just couldn’t resist styling it with this outfit!
