Casual Thanksgiving

Outfit Details: Shein cardi c/o, J.Crew top, H&M denim, Old Navy boots

My family has a big Thanksgiving get-together each year. My mom does all the cooking, and I typically bring mac & cheese with a dessert! We typically get a little dressed up for the occasion, but this year we are slowing it down and having a casual, small, Thanksgiving. Our family dynamics have changed a bit with my Grandpa’s recent passing. We are figuring out how to incorporate new traditions. Today’s look is my casual Thanksgiving day outfit. Perfect for family time, and then a big night of shopping for Black Friday!  Hope hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m so thankful for all of you, my friends, for supporting me throughout the journey of A  Daydream Love!



Weekend Recap 11.20.17

Weekend Recap:

I can’t believe the Holiday’s are here! Happy Thanksgiving week! I’ve been preparing all weekend for Thanksgiving-making my shopping list, Black Friday list, and getting my house in order before the mayhem! This will be my first year making the famous pumpkin pies for our family gathering, I’m nervous and excited! I’ve been thinking about making a “test” one in advance, just to be sure things go well. The Holiday season is such a fantastic time and I’m really looking forward to all the celebrations with my friends and family.

On Saturday I went to my very first car show. I had a blast, and now I just want a new car! After the car show, J and I grabbed lunch by the water and went on a little stroll. We had the privilege of getting to spend some time with our niece that night. She brings so much joy to our families life, and I’m so thankful to be a part of her growing life. On Sunday, we decided to do a deep clean in our house to prepare for all of the upcoming Holiday’s. After our house was clean we started getting crafty and made our pup a new doggie bowl stand! Ending the weekend with errands and football.

While we are still recovering from my Grandpa’s passing, some joy has been restored just by being surrounded with all of the love and support from friends and family. There are additional things in my life that are still not at peace, and I’m really hoping and praying that restoration will happen, and stability will be around the corner. I’m so thankful that I can trust in God, knowing he holds all of this in His hands. If you are going through a time of instability, and restlessness, put your trust in God, He will be the firm foundation and rock that your life needs. Trust that He will take care of His children.

Here are some things I’m loving:

Since I’m in charge of the pumpkin pies this year, I figured I would share the recipe that I plan on using since I know I’m not the only one that will be baking a pumpkin pie! In my fall Pinterest board, your will find that pumpkin pie recipe!

My Christmas Gift Guide is live and I broke it down into the tabs “For Him“, “For Her“, and “Under $50

Everyone needs to have a Holiday dress on hand. One that can be worn at anytime, that doesn’t require a lot of thinking, or breaking the bank. This dress is ON SALE for under $30! Snag it quickly!

Friendgsiving Outfit

Outfit Details: Forever 21 skirt , BP. sweater (last year, similar), Forever 21 boots, Cult Gaia bag

A week from today we will all be celebrating Thanksgiving! Can’t believe the Holiday’s are here! I get to celebrate Thanksgiving with some friends tonight and I thought I would share my outfit with you! I love this look for fall, but it seemed to be so perfect for a Friendsgiving! It’s a little comfy, a little flirty, and a whole lot of fall perfection! This skirt is literally under $16 and I’m already finding others ways to wear it this season and in the spring!

Remember when I talked about adding some of summer trends into the fall season? Basket bags where one of those things I mentioned. I paired my favorite one with today’s outfit and I love the look! You can shop this ever popular bag here. You can read more about my favorite basket bags here.

Weekend Recap 11.13.17

Weekend Recap:

This weekend was filled with so much joy. I want to start there because I honestly went into the weekend with a broken heart filled with hurt and pain. Finding that joy can be so hard, but I filled my time with family, friends, and fun activities. I separated myself from the things that are causing the emotional pain and sometimes that’s what we have to do, a loving separation, so that we don’t let that person, or situation steal our happiness.

On Saturday we celebrated the life of my Grandpa, for someone who didn’t think people really cared about him had countless family, friends, co-works, and past acquaintances show up to honor the life and legacy he left behind. Though there were tears they were of joy because we know that one day we will see him again in heaven. It’s ok to cry out of sadness or joy. It doesn’t make you weak. It’s healthy for you to have that emotional release. Something I shared on my Instagram this weekend and I’ll share here: Take each moment of your life and just be thankful, and live each day being humble.

Sunday morning, Jacob and I started with coffee in the park where we also shot the looks for this week! The rest of the day was just letting loose with friends at the pool. We enjoyed games, football, and food! Smiling is good for the soul and there was lots of that! I hope that, even though it’s Monday, you can find a small time today to just smile!

Here are some things I’m loving:

This week our friend group is getting together for a Friends-giving so I’ve been gathering some ideas for recipes and decor, and I just love this table set up! You can find more fall, pumpkins, and Thanksgiving food on my Pinterest board here.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, aren’t we all starting to ask ourselves what we may be wearing? We all typically go for something a little looser on this Holiday because we know we are about to indulge in some delicious food-which is totally acceptable! I found this top that would be so perfect and under $60!




Tie Sleeve Top

Outfit Details: A Daydream Love Boutique top

I am back and excited to show off the latest top from the A Daydream Love Boutique! I’ve worn this top many times since I got it in-I’ve paired it with flats and boots, both compliment the top very well. It’s a lightweight knit, and it very comfortable to wear. It’s a great length to either tuck in or leave out. This tie sleeve top is $35 and you can shop it right here!

This look is my typical go-to fall look here in Florida. Whether it’s a day out running errands, a night out with some friends, it’s versatile to any scenario!  If you have casual family Thanksgivings like we do in my family, this would be a perfect look! I’m already starting to plan my menu and even Black Friday shopping wish list! I will be working on getting some Christmas shopping guides together very soon-stay tuned! We have been enjoying some beautiful fall weather, and I’m hoping it doesn’t go away anytime soon-I’m really wanting to enjoy a cooler Thanksgiving!
