These past few Thanksgiving day holidays were super low key for us. We didn’t have any family in town and really just spent it the 3 of us. We went to a Thanksgiving buffet and cooked some staple Thanksgiving foods of our own, we did A LOT of Black Friday shopping, we watched the Michigan – Ohio State game (me and the husband went to the respective schools, it was a darn good fight by Michigan even though we lost), we put up our Christmas tree and sang and dance to Christmas songs. Oh and I finally got my first caramel brulee latte from Starbucks and it was amazing.





But before I get carried away with Christmas, I’m loving the mini heat wave (of 50 degrees) we got this past weekend.  This outfit was just perfect for wearing without a coat. I love the look of buffalo check and camo mixed together… and I also quite like pink and burgundy colors together as well, so decided to mix it all up in to one outfit!



Outfit Details:

Sweater c/o Conversation Pieces (15% off entire store on Cyber Monday – discount reflected at checkout!)
Button Down: Madewell
Pants: GAP
Shoes: Forever 21
Necklace c/o Daily Dose
Bag: Chloe
