THANKSGIVING OUTFIT INSPIRATION

Can y'all believe that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away?! That just blows my mind. A year ago from yesterday I was spending the day getting all gussied up to marry the love of my life! That's right, D & I celebrated our first wedding anniversary yesterday! Yay, us! It has been a fun, crazy ride, and I am so excited for the journey God has for us! 

So back to CLOTHES because CLOTHES OVER BROS, amiright?! ;) (just kidding, babe- sorta) I've been brainstorming Thanksgiving outfit ideas and wanted to share a little inspiration with you guys. I'm all about comfy, loose clothes on Thanksgiving because- DUH. Let's be real, I want to eat everything in sight and not feel like I'm bursting out of my clothes. I found this dress (also thinking about this one) that looks like it would fit the bill for the occasion! Cute, cozy, and a tad bit loose- SOLD (well, actually still sitting in my cart, but I'll have to change that today because Loft is having their Friendsgiving sale for 40% off everything just for registering your email! Don't miss out) 

And to keep my coziness still looking chic because- PICTURES, I chose some great accessories like this bib necklace, classic clutch, and beautiful over-the-knee boots! Wine is the new black this season so don't be shy- give it a try! HA. I'm sorry, I had to after I read that back to myself. Forgive my cheesy humor :)  



I hope this gives y'all some inspiration for outfit planning! Let me know what you plan on wearing for your Thanksgiving festivities!

FALL HATS

Let's talk fall and winter hats today! If you've never been a hat person, donning one in public may be a little bit scary for the first time, but I am a firm believer in the fact that adding a hat can take your outfit to a whole new level! My advice, if you are a newbie hat person, is to start off small and work your way up. Maybe rock a smaller panama hat before moving up to a full floppy hat, and beanies are also one of the easiest winter accessories to add to any look. Just go for it! Chances are, everyone you see will be jealous of your look and wondering if they could rock a hat as well as you! Below are some of my fall and winter favorites!

NEW FAVES

Hi y'all! I am beyond excited because today is the first day in San Antonio to feel like fall ALL DAY long! No 60 degree morning weather and 90 degrees in the afternoon. It has been a delicious 60ish degrees all day!!! I actually got to pull out my boots for the first time this season! Oh, San Antonio, I won't miss your weather when I'm gone. But enough weather speak...I wanted to share some of my new makeup and hair product finds I've been loving recently! 


Laura Mercier Foundation Primer- Hydrating: I have always heard great things about Laura Mercier products so I finally decided to give them a try, and they did not disappoint. I have been on the hunt for a new primer/foundation combination so when I saw that this was specially formulated to hydrate skin, I was sold. I put this on before my foundation or tinted moisturizer, and it makes the rest of my makeup application flawless and acts almost like a second moisturizer (which my skin can always use as much moisture as it can get)! 

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation: This foundation is absolutely my new favorite product! I have had so much trouble finding a foundation that works with my skin because it is so dry. Most foundations cling to my dry spots- no thank you, but this specially formulated for dry skin moisturizing foundation has been wonderful! I apply it with a damp beauty blender, and it looks seamless. I love that it offers full coverage with only a small amount of product, AND it doesn't rub off throughout the day! 

YSL Rouge Pur Couture #205 Matte Burgundy: My new fall go-to lip! The perfect matte, deep wine color! Buy it now- thank me later! 

NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray: One of my best friend's introduced me to this product, and it really is a game changer. I was having so much trouble with my foundation gradually rubbing off throughout the day before I started using this. Now, once I finish my makeup, I spray this on a few minutes later, and it gives my makeup that matte look I want. There are so many different setting sprays out there, but this one absolutely lives up to its claims. It has kept me matte through sweat and rain so that is saying something! 

Sebastian Potion 9: This is a styling product that can be applied to wet hair or dry hair! I apply this to my damp hair before blow drying, and it leaves it so soft and adds extra volume! I've also applied it to my dry hair to give it extra texture. Ulta has a sale on the travel size, as well, so you can give it a try before buying the big one! 

KMS California Hair Play Makeover Spray: I would describe this product as a mix between a dry shampoo and a texture builder! It absorbs oil for refreshing day-old hair, but it can also be used to give fresh hair more texture and volume! This is definitely one of my new favorite products that I've been using almost daily! For day-old curls, I spray it on and it gives them a little refresh for a beachy wave, or for straight hair, I have been spraying it on to add texture and hold! I originally bought the travel size to try it out and am obsessed! I can't wait to get the full size! 

Thanks for reading, y'all!
