The Perfect Patchwork Wrap Dress for Thanksgiving

Head to Toe: Dress, Moon River //  Bag, Brahmin // Boots, Frye (similar) // Necklace, C/O Kay Jewelers

This Western patchwork wrap dress is one of my favorite pieces from this month's Nuuly order. I wore it to a blogger event, my bestie's baby shower, and a cocktail party this month. I also think it would make a perfect, easy look for Thanksgiving.

A few years ago, I would've cringed about the dress covering the top of my boots, but I've really been digging the layered, prairie look lately. These Frye riding boots were my first expensive "adult" purchase, and they are true investment pieces. They only look better with age, and they're incredibly comfortable. I stashed them on the shelf for a while while ankle boots reigned the day, but I'm glad calf-height boots are back in fashion. What was your first big fashion purchase?

Vintage '70s Sweater for an Early Cold Snap

Head to Toe: Sweater, Vintage // Cords, Anthropologie // Booties, CAT Footwear // Headband, Amazon

I found this super warm vintage 1970s sweater at Little Ghost Vintage during our trip to Portland, Maine. I thought it might be stashed away until December, but it got super cold here this week so I busted it out early. (Sweater weather for Monti too, since he just got a shotty DIY mom haircut.) I love the simple color scheme and fair isle pattern, and it is incredibly warm. They just don't make things like they used to, amiright? Happy Friday, folks!

The Perfect November Look

Head to Toe: Sweater, The Good Jane //  Skirt, Maeve by Anthropologie // Bag, Brahmin

November isn't my favorite month of the year, but there's something charming about it. It's a good time to homestead, hunker in and rest before holiday craziness. I think this outfit pretty much sums it up—Little Women vibes met with just enough sparkle, with leaves crunching under your boots.

I know the holidays have a shorter timeframe this year with Thanksgiving falling late, but it just feels to me that everyone is jumping the gun. Maybe they do this every year, and I'm just being a Grinch, but I'm so not ready to deck the halls. I'll be humbly protesting over here ordering pumpkin spice lattes and enjoying my fall decor for the next few weeks. How about you?
