Holiday Sparkles

What is all this crap about Winter Storm Bella?!! It isn’t even Thanksgiving yet and Chicago is already expecting a doozy snowstorm this weekend.

I’m just not READY! I need at least a few more weeks to brace myself for snow. I haven’t even invested in a big Winter coat yet?!! Ughhh, Mother Nature – what are doing to us????!!!

Anyway, what better wardrobe for a crappy snowstorm than a big fluffy sweater? And one with sparkles and jewels I might add! This Ann Taylor sweater may be old, but there are plenty of newer & similar styles out there and I promise they are equally as comfortable and glamorous. Now granted, these shoes probably wouldn’t be very comfortable in a snow storm (um, hello frostbite on your little piggies!), but at least the leather pants would still be warm, and you could always throw on some hunter boots, or a cute pair of over the knee boots to make this outfit more appropriate for the hateful weather we get here up North.

And can we just take a second to revisit my first paragraph in which case I am in utter disbelief that Thanksgiving is next week! I’ll be traveling further North to Michigan next week, and I am hoping to catch up on some blogging, and plan a little for the next few weeks, as I have some exciting collaborations coming up, and did I mention – my ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!

I am still figuring out all the details, but if any other bloggers or companies are interested in collaborating for my Blogiversary, feel free to email me, or DM me on Instagram :)

And in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to take a second to let all of you know how grateful I am that you take time to support my blog! Whether it’s through Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or on here, I sincerely appreciate you taking time to comment, like, email, or share my content as I had no idea how much this blog would grow over the last year. It has been a crazy ride, and one that started as a simple hobby to share my love of fashion on the internet. I’ve got to build friendships with so many of you and collaborate with a ton of awesome companies over the last 11 months, and could not be more thankful for the support you all have shown!

So while I am most thankful for you (YES - YOU!) what are you most thankful for this year?
