December Rain

We have had an unusually warm and dry winter here in the SLC thus far.  So when the rain and sleet started coming down this past weekend, I was actually a little thrilled because I am hoping for a white Christmas (duh!), but also a little bummed because rain and blog photos usually don’t mix.  But we managed to take cover and get these shots done.  And guess what?  I’m rocking green again (in a little different shade than Monday’s post) for the holiday season!  This outfit is an easy one to put together and perfect for a holiday party-especially when paired back a red lip!

Holiday Dressing

I love planning outfits for the holidays.  In fact, I already know what I’m wearing on Christmas Eve (which also happens to be my absolute favorite day of the year).  But truth be told, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to dress for because it’s the only holiday where it’s perfectly acceptable to wear your stretchiest pants and be totally casual.  And so, this year, in true Thanksgiving fashion, I opted to wear my favorite grey t-shirt, stretchiest legging jeans, and go-to wedge boots for a lovely dinner with friends.  But because I was feeling festive and wanted to dress things up just a little, I also added fun accessories and a cute (but comfy)Rachel Roy twill jacket to complete my look.  And let me tell you, a cute and stylish jacket (much like a fantastic pair of shoes) is a super easy way to dress up any outfit-a little secret weapon in your closet, if you will!

I still can’t believe another Thanksgiving has come and gone. Why is it that the things we always look forward to the most always seem to pass us by the quickest? But on the bright side, I can now officially put up my Christmas decorations, play Christmas music to my little heart’s content, and even eat Christmas cookies for breakfast if I feel so inclined (don’t judge). It really is the most wonderful time of the year, isn’t it?

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!!

Thankful…

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. A day filled with good food, family, and friends, and a time to pause and reflect on all of the blessings we have in our lives. This year, I am of course incredibly thankful for many things, but one thing is new on my list this year. And that is all of YOU. Starting a blog has been such an amazing adventure, and it would not be possible for me to be able to do this without all of you-my fabulous readers. So thank you for your support, your feedback, and your encouragement over the last couple of months-it has meant the world to me.  And as I count my blessings this Thanksgiving, please know that you all are right at the top of my list. THANK YOU.

20121122-114853.jpgI started off my day today by running the Cottonwood Heights Thanksgiving 5k.  It was a gorgeous morning and 2,000 people showed up for the event!  J couldn’t run with me this year because he is still healing from a broken ankle, but he and the pups cheered me on from the sidelines.  And little Charlie even ran the last 1/2 mile with me!  And while it was fun to bust out my Indian costume and run, it wasn’t quite as fun without my other half.  So I thought I would leave you all with a photo of J and I last year after our turkey trot in Golden Gate Park.  

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
