The following information will perhaps cause you to clutch your pearls, buuuuut… truth be told, I’m not that crazy about the color purple and don’t have much of it in my wardrobe. Now red and blue, I can totally rock with. But I’ve just never been able to muster up much excitement for the color purple (aside from the movie and Broadway musical – the book was a little too heavy for me). In any case, I’m slowly coming around to it – especially when I recently found this gorgeous wool coat for fall. I decided that if I’m going to give purple a shot this season, I may as well go all in and commit with a major wardrobe staple. Once I paired it with yellow accessories (and freakin’ LOVED the way it looked), I knew I was finally coming around to it.

One peek at my husband’s closet (or his Instagram), and it becomes pretty clear he has a favorite pattern: Black Watch Plaid. Over the years, he’s amassed quite the collection of garments in his signature print, including everything from socks to a winter parka. I’ve even jumped on the bandwagon and purchased a few goodies myself to mix into my wardrobe.

Once a year on the day after Thanksgiving, while most couples are probably out shopping ’til they drop, I indulge hubby’s passion for tartan by celebrating his favorite fashion ‘holiday’: Black Watch Friday. Hence today’s uber preppy and matchy-matchy ensemble.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

After a long weekend of binging on turkey and sweet potato pie, the last thing I wanted to do is squeeze into a pair of skinny jeans. So instead I reached way back into my closet for this swingy sweater dress that I’ve had for years. The bow keeps it festive, but the loose fit means I can keep my food baby under wraps for at least another day.

I paired this look with my two favorite accessories of the moment. The first being this adorable beret that I just couldn’t resist as soon as I saw the bow on the back. And last, but definitely not least, these gorgeous yet super comfy block-heeled mary janes with a colorful graphic print.
