Today I wanted to share with you 2 Winter-Ready Looks. The weather is starting to get a little cooler around here... I can finally pull out some layers, such as this striped poncho I'm wearing over a velvet dress. I've also been seeing faux leather leggings everywhere and I finally found a pair that fits like a dream. It'll definitely be a nice change from regular leggings and they look great under tunics, dresses, etc. I am …

Ruffled Tunic w/ Velvet Leggings

Today I wanted to share a post that I recently shared over at Shea Lennon's blog.

Today I'm wearing an outfit that I wore on my anniversary. My hubby took the day off work and we had a 'date day', except it turned out that he got sick and stayed home to rest most of the day. We did go out for breakfast and had some delicious gooey butter cake! He also took me to the mall and I got a new band for my Apple Watch. The one I had was more for the summer, so it was nice to get a darker band (of course, he took these photos before I got it!).

What I'm Wearing:
Plum Ruffle Top - c/o Agnes & Dora
Velvet Leggings - Stitch Fix
Lace Up Booties - F21 (Similar, Similar)*
Statement Necklace - J. Crew Outlet (Similar, Similar)*
Kiss Ring (Similar, Similar)
Gold Leopard Clutch - Charming Charlie (Similar, Similar)*
Renegade Cluster Bracelet - Stella & Dot

Thanks for reading today and I hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The Creative Corner Link Up Party & Weekly Recap - 11/27/16

Welcome back to our DIY/Craft Link Up Party! Thank you for stopping by every week!

Today's Feature is DIY Rustic Holiday Ornament Decorby Simply Designing.

I like to share a little recap of my week at the start of each party: We had a full week! The kids only had TWO days of school (lucky ducks) and then we headed to Kansas City to celebrate Autumn's birthday at the Great Wolf Lodge! I will be sharing a recap post of our trip on Friday. Today we had Thanksgiving #2 with my family at my brother and SIL's house. It was a lot of fun and my brother always makes the BEST turkey! Yum!

My plate from Thanksgiving #2 and a birthday cake for my mom and Autumn (both had birthdays on the same week!).

Autumn's birthday was on Monday and I got her FAVORITE flavor of ice cream in a cake- Cookies and Oreo! Yum!

On Tuesday, Nathan's class went to the fire and police stations and a nursing home to drop off gifts and spread a little cheer. It was a fun morning and they enjoyed playing bing…
