Here's a little glimpse at my Thanksgiving. It was pretty chilly, but I decided on going bare-legged anyway, since I knew we would be indoors the whole time, and honestly, this outfit is pretty darn comfortable. I am obsessed with bodycon skirts because they are just as comfy as yoga pants or leggings, but look so much better. I found this top hiding in my closet, and I cannot believe I forgot I had this little gem. It totally hid my food belly! That's a big PLUS in my book.
My husband and I spent the holiday with lots of friends in the home of a gracious couple who offered to cook for us. They laid out a magnificent and scrumptious feast, and I had a blast catching up with friends and meeting new ones. Some of the conversations from that evening included: Jurassic Park, Indian burial grounds, stained glass windows, and oyster genitalia. Good times, ya'll. Good Times.

  27. I want to go swimming in that pool of olives and reach through my computer screen for the brie pastry. This post is DIVINE. And your vintage (!) panther bracelet? Utterly fabulous.
