For my second Thanksgiving outfit I went with a skirt and an outfit I have been planning since August. It was a little warmer on this day so I was able to wear my outfit exactly as planned!

V-Neck Sweater: Everlane 'The Cashmere V-Neck', Oriental Print Skirt: J.McLaughlin (Coco's $10 sale),  Silk Reflections Sunkissed Ultra Sheer Tight c/o Hanes Hosiery, Boots: 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Peggy' in patent leather and pony-hair (Barney's Warehouse)

Last Thursday I was invited to a blogger/media dinner at Jack's Steakhouse in New Haven.  Jack's opened in October 2017 in the heart of New Haven. It's close to theaters and Yale so you will have a lot to do before and after your meal. There is even a special Bistro Room where you can seat up to 56 guests for an event. Monday through Saturday they have a 2-course prix fixe lunch for $21. We were there on Thursday night so we got to enjoy live music from a local musician.

It was a little warmer that day so I was able to go sans coat (sans sweater too, but I wanted an extra element to my look.) I've been wanting to wear this snakeskin blouse for a while since it doesn't get as much love as it should and this seemed like the perfect occasion! It was dark by the time Lydia and I were ready for photos so please excuse the use of flash.

On to the food at Jack's Steakhouse. We enjoyed a 4 course meal and got to sample a bunch of different dishes family style. As one would expect from bloggers, once the plates arrived we all spent a few minutes lighting the table with our phones so we could get photos of the food.

My personal favorites were the Beet Salad, Bourbon Glazed Pork Belly Chunks, Curry Cauliflower and Porterhouse steak. The Beet Salad came with roasted red and golden beets, baby kale, pumpkin seeds and maple syrup vinaigrette. It also comes with a goat cheese croquette, which I did not sample (I'm a weirdo who hates cheese on most foods.) The pork belly chunks were roasted for 3 hours and were made with bourbon, brown sugar, salt and teriyaki sauce. The cauliflower was in a delicious curry sauce that added so much flavor. Finally, the Porterhouse steak was 44oz of wet aged beef and was soooooo tasty! I definitely had more than a few slices of that.

Happy almost Christmas! I hope everyone has a lovely holiday and weekend. Mine is going to be full of family and friends. I'm extending the break through New Years (mostly because my clients will also be taking time off.) I'll have a bit of work but will be able to do a LOT of relaxing.

This Monday, Nonee of CT Blogger Babes hosted a wonderful holiday soiree for Connecticut bloggers! Having gone to their smaller brunch back in July, I knew this would be a great event so it was worth the hour drive. It was held at Flora, a vegan restaurant/bar, in West Hartford. I was worried about the vegan aspect since I'm a picky eater but luckily they had some chicken and fish options for those of us who eat meat. My favorite bite was their vegetable fried rice, I even took a bunch home in a doggy bag and had it with dinner the next night!

This crimson Altuzarra for Target embroidered dress is perfect for holiday get together. The color is gorgeous and I love the detailing up top. I've had the dress for a little over 3 years and I still get compliments on it.

Dress: Altuzarra for Target embroidered pleated georgette dress, Merino Tights c/o Wolford (also here), Patent Leather and Pony Hair Boots: 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Peggy' Ankle Boot (Barneys Warehouse), Bag: Dark Purple Chloé Faye (eBay), Earrings: Mejuri 'Loop' by Jamie-Lee, Coat: DKNY (old)

Who doesn't love a good blazer or curling up with a good book? This blazer wraps both into one. I don't wear it much since it's such a statement piece but it's one of my favorite blazers.  I wish I wasn't still wearing blazers at this point in the year, but what can you do? Sometimes Winter just wants to stick around.

For this outfit I was inspired by Farfetch's brand new Style Guide. They have an article on why velvet should be your go-to fabric and I completely agree! It's one of my favorites to wear because it's luxurious, fun and soft! It can be worn in any season now thanks to all the different styles that are offered. Velvet now comes in slip dresses, blazers, pants and more!

It's also my blog's 7th anniversary crazy is that?!! In the beginning I never planned on sharing my outfits, and now look at me! 4 times a week!

This isn't exactly the outfit I had in mind but I forgot to grab my purple sweater before leaving the house and was stuck using one of my mom's to get a similar effect. It's okay but my sweater was a darker shade with a few hints of black.  Still, I like that it's time to start layering with light sweater. Plus, we're getting into the weather where it's okay to wear booties with a skirt or shorts! It only lasts for a couple weeks and some people think it looks dumb, but I love it! I also love this jungle print skirt by Carven. I don't wear it nearly as much as I should.

Sweater: Mom's, Top c/o Simple Retro, Skirt: Carven (Net-a-Porter), Boots: 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Peggy' (Barney's Warehouse), Necklace: Grandma's

And here we are with outfit number 2 featuring my Saint Laurent patchwork blouse! For this look I paired it with dark jeans and crazy boots. It was actually warm enough without my jacket, but the wind made it necessary at some times.  You can see the effect the wind had on my hair, there were a bunch of shots with my face obscured by hair, very attractive!

This is what I wore to go to Roundabout with Lydia this past weekend. We were pretty well behaved with me buying a Jason Wu blouse and Lydia picking up a great jacket and blouse! We both had other things we wanted but we resisted the temptation to buy more because of the deep discounts. So hard.

Blazer: Evan Picone, Patchwork Blouse: Saint Laurent (eBay), Jeans: Mother c/o Marshalls, Boots: 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Peggy' (Barneys Warehouse), Bag: Emm Kuo (Roundabout Resale), Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika' (Ditto), Necklace: Acanthus Jewelry
