Thanksgiving Day Outfits

Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite holiday. There is something so cozy, warm, and peaceful about it. I also love the together-time with family and friends! When it comes to what to wear on Thanksgiving Day, it is all about what activities your family usually partakes in. I’ve rounded up ideas for 4 different looks- lounge, very casual, casual-cute, and dressy. If your family relaxes all day at home, the lounge outfit is totally for you. The casual outfit (or the casual-cute outfit) is perfect for those of you that go to a family member’s house for the day and evening. The dressy look is for the formal, sit-down, family dinner. Scroll down to see the 4 different categories, and the outfit ideas for each!

You guys. Here in Cali, the rumor is true: you rarely venture out of your neighborhood because the traffic is bananas. Your “kinda safe” window is from 11am – 2pm, but who knows if that will even be true. So today, I was up for a little change of scenery, took the risk, and adventured out to the beautiful Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica specifically to see the new Sole Society store.

I love this company so much because the shoes are amazing quality at an affordable price. Win, win! The store is absolutely adorable, and they make you feel so at home while you shop. I encourage all you Californians to go visit, and anyone outside of the state, put this on your go-to list when you are in town! Scroll down to shop some of my favorite pieces + I will show you what I splurged on.

Happy humpday! Today, I’m not only sharing this cute striped turtleneck sweater with y’all, but a really exciting announcement! (If you follow me on snapchat [laurenkay2] you might already know). For the past month or so I’ve been in the process of designing/launching my own website! I have had an absolute blast writing for LOLO Mag and getting to partner with Lauren this past year, but recently I really feel like the Lord has been putting some new ideas on my heart and the first step in that direction is launching my own blog (!

The site will be launching tomorrow (Thursday) morning, and I hope you all will check it out and give me your feedback! Thank you so much for all of your support with my posts for LOLO. It has been such a joy!

Guys, are you as freaked out as I am that it’s November already?! This year I am determined to start my shopping early (like, now) to make this amazing season as joyful and stress-free as possible. When you save your shopping till the last minute, you so miss out on how beautiful the Christmas season is because you’re stressed and beating yourself up for procrastinating your shopping, yet again.

So, I’d love to help you out! I will be sharing multiple gift guides over the next several weeks to make shopping as easy as possible for you. Today’s gift round up are all amazing gifts for women, for less than $50. These would make great gifts for your best friend, co-worker, mother-in-law, neighbor, and just about any girl in your life.

olive green + crochet = perfect fall dress

olive-green-dress olive-green-dress olive-green-dress olive-green-dress olive-green-dress olive-green-dress olive-green-dressOlive green dress (less than $50!) | Crossbody bag (also converts to a backpack!) | Booties | Earrings | Ring | Aviators

So it’s no secret by now that olive green is a huge trend this Fall season, which I am loving. My current wardrobe consist of this olive green dress (plus a few others), olive green sweaters, olive green rompers…I cannot get enough. I think this color compliments just about any skin tone, looks amazing with cognac and gold, and just has such an easy/natural feel to it. The olive green trend allows you to add color to your wardrobe, but without straying too far from the neutral family (aka my comfort zone).

This olive green dress was one that I bought, without even trying on (for sizing info, I’m wearing the XS). First of all, because the price is SO good (only $48?! yes please). I also loved the hankerchief hemline, because it reminds of of Tinkerbell! It’s so fun to twirl in. I also figured I’d get a ton of use out of it because it’s perfect for Baylor games, and will look great with riding boots, as well as booties!
