I am starting to feel like those stores you go into, and it seems like they decorate for Halloween and then for Christmas. Thanksgiving is almost completely skipped over, and I’ve always resisted and hated that. I love having each holiday celebrated and given their due amount of time in the spotlight. Thanksgiving is one of the holidays that I love the most, and food is only a small part of that reason. Lol!

Thanksgiving is one time of the year when we all stop for just a minute and focus on what we are thankful for. We eat lots of good food, take a few naps, and I always like watching the parades. This year has thrown everything into a spiral, and nothing is normal about the holidays. People are shopping earlier, maybe because of the fear of shortages or the fear of getting the gifts delivered on time. So, I’ll be getting my holiday gift guides to you sooner than ever since I usually wait until closer to Black Friday. Honestly, it seems like the stores are already in Black Friday mode and are offering more and more specials all of the time. The first gift guide will be at the end of this post, and more will follow tomorrow.

When I ordered this pullover, I thought it was a sweatshirt. I was pleasantly surprised when this came in to find out that it was a sweater instead. If I had looked at the description, then I would have seen that it said a “knit sweater.” I love this relaxed style, and I can see myself wearing this for my weekend look. This pullover knit sweater comes in several different prints, but I loved the crispness of the white. I am wearing a medium in this sweater, and it is plenty roomy.

This Sam Edleman lambskin leather moto jacket is quite a statement jacket. It is soft and subtle, yet it is heavy and structured. I have no idea how you can be both, but it somehow works for this jacket. The hardware is nice and heavy, and everything about this jacket screams luxury. It is on sale for $150.00 off, so this is at a steal! I am wearing a large which is perfect when you want to wear a sweater with it. Here is a different take for a moto jacket, and it is one of my favorite looks.

***When I ordered this jacket, I also ordered another one to see which I liked the best. The other one is supposed to arrive later today because it got delayed for a small time. The Sam Edleman is getting limited in sizes, so give this one a look if your size is not available.

I’m wearing my favorite style of jeans, the so-slimming girlfriend jeans from Chico’s. These black jeans hug me in all of the right places, and my legs look a mile long. I am wearing my normal size .5 in these jeans, but in other brands, I will wear a size 10. I added a new pair of pointy-toe booties, and I love the scrunch shaft on these. Here are a few other black jeans for you to choose from.

I have a TREAT to give out to some lucky reader for Halloween!!! All you have to do is comment below the favorite Halloween costume that you or someone in your family wore. Extra entries if you upload a photo! The gift…A Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream that you will LOVE! This cream, a $64.00 value, is why you don’t see crow’s feet in my photos! I’ve been consistently using this eye cream for four years, and it has turned back the hands of time!!!

    Hi Tania, I love and look forward to your email everyday! One year for Halloween, I made my daughter a costume that was “a side of french fries”. It was her favorite treat. Thank you and I hope you have a great Friday!!❤️

    • My favorite Halloween costume when I was a kid is my southern Belle dress with a hoop skirt. It was a pain to wear, but so beautiful!

      My favorite Halloween costume was of my brother. My sisters and brother went to a church Halloween party as kids. My brother has natural curly blond hair and blue eyes. He was dressed as a girl. He had on a ruffled dress, with girly accessories and shoes. When they gave out prizes for the best dressed my brother wasn’t picked. My sister mentioned his costume and the judges were shocked. He looked so much like a girl that they thought he was just a little girl. He had to go prove who he was. We all laughed when they realized who he was, our younger brother Troy. I think he was kinda embarrassed but with 6 sisters he was used to playing dress up and being and all the things your sisters can do to you.

    Love this outfit. Especially love the jacket. Only small sizes left unfortunately. My favorite costume was when my daughter went to a classmates Halloween party dressed as Snow White and on one knew who she was for quite sometime. Finally the classmates mom asked her who she was and she won best costume.

      Judy, thanks for letting me know that they were limited in sizes on that jacket. I also have another one coming to compare the two to see which I like the best. Here is the link to that one. https://shopstyle.it/l/bnVgD

    I don’t like to rush Christmas either. Although I do start shopping and making my gifts and such ahead of time. I love my fall decorations! I don’t start decorating for Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving. AND I leave my Christmas decorations up until after Epiphany so that I can enjoy them after the craziness of the holidays.

    My favourite costume is when my cousin and I went to a community social in a neighboring small rural hall. We were adults and I dressed up as Oscar the Grouch. I sewed the mask from fun fur and wore all green, right down to my spray painted shoes. A plastic garbage can with shoulder straps and the bottom removed became my ‘home”. That was over 35 yrs ago, and if my memory serves me correct I won first prize. Those were the days!

    Favorite costume was when my husband and I, and another couple went dressed as the California raisins. Even got the guys to wear black tights. We were the hit of the house party. Great memories.

    I dressed up as a baby with footie pajamas and pigtails and carried a big lollipop and calf bottle. My girlfriends and I went to a bar and a handsome young man asked me out on a date and we’ve been married 38 years.

    Love the sweater today! I don’t know whether you remember the Carol Burnett show (love her!), but she always did a skit where she was a cleaning lady and dressed in a ratty dress with rags hanging off and a scarf around her head and she had a bucket on wheels with a mop stuck in it. Funny skit! But anyway, my mom (who sort of looked like Carol Burnett minus the red hair) dressed like that. She looked so cute and funny!

    Hi Tanya! Thanks for putting together the gift ideas post. Looking forward to more. I’m not tech savvy enough to post photos, but my favorite costume has been my daughter (she’s 12 now) who dressed up as a unicorn for 6 straight years. We had to purchase 3 different costumes over the years.😁. But she loved unicorns, so that’s all she wanted to be. This year, sadly, she thinks that’s babyish so she’s dressing up as a devil.
    Miss those years!!

    When I think of Halloween costumes what comes to mind are the two I made my sons when they were young. They dressed as fruit of the loom grapes. One green one purple. No sewing involved, but a lot of hot air! 🎈

    my favorite costume for my girls was the year they dressed up as a red and orange M & M each wearing a tutu. So cute. I tried to add a picture but I am not tech savvy and could not figure out how to upload it. By the way, love the sweater and just bought one for me and one for a Christmas gift for my youngest daughter.

    Love your blog! The moto jacket looks great on you.
    As for the favorite costume, I wish I could attach a picture of my son from a few years ago. At nearly 13 years old, he decided that he wouldn’t dress up for a party we were invited to…Naturally we called him a party pooper! We ran with the idea. He ended up wearing poop emoji suspenders, bow tie, and a poop emoji pillow attached to his dress shirt. We topped it off with a glittery top hat,and gave him a party horn to blow. 🥳💩

    My grandmother always loved dressing up for Halloween. She would concoct costumes out of things she had around the house and was always waiting for us when we came to her house to trick or treat. I think she usually had more fun than the kids. Unfortunately, I don’t have a single picture of her and I cannot figure out why except for the fact that she passed away before the time that we are all carrying a camera with us everywhere we go. Miss her so much!
