ann-taylor-navy-velvet-1ann-taylor-navy-velvet-4ann-taylor-navy-velvet-3velvet-gift Going all-out in midnight blue with rich velvet and cozy textures for the holidays, from Ann Taylor’s newest collection. This blazer is even more gorgeous in person, perfect for my festive night out with friends. I also picked up the matching velvet pant – love having the option to match it or wear the pieces separately (I envision wearing the pants with a cozy oversized sweater for the holidays!).

Thursday Things 06

at home cozy A few thoughts on this Thanksgiving…

  • We were in a car accident on the freeway (the other driver didn’t see that traffic in our lane was slowing to a stop and just blew into us, ripping the back corner of the car off!). It was a timely reminder for what’s truly important today on Thanksgiving (and every day): the health and safety of loved ones, family and friends.
  • I’ve mentioned a few times recently that my older dog is 15 years old. She’s been showing her age more and more every day… Thankful to have every day with her and our younger dog. They were in the car with us when we got in the accident and luckily they were not harmed (they were in their travel bag).
  • Hoping to spend the rest of the weekend cozying up with Lucia and my hubby. That’s what holiday weekends are for, right?

Wishing you and your loved ones a very special, happy Thanksgiving. xx

Polka Dots

designer-balenciaga-1designer-balenciaga-2designer-ferragamo-belt-1 Three things I’ve been crazy about in one look:

  1. berets (I also picked one up in gray),
  2. polka dots (I can’t wait to wear this dress again and I love my new pumps from Nordstrom’s Designer Collections),
  3. and belting my coats. It’s all in there today, that and the kitchen sink, ha!

Switching out my pumps for sneakers tomorrow though: we’re excited to be with family to kick off the holidays and for our annual floor hockey family game (10 adults and 8 kids!). It’s happening and Lucia is into it! Happy almost-Thanksgiving!
