It's always so hard for me to take outfit photos in Winter, yet they are usually some of my favorite outfits. I always feel bad making Christian stand out in the cold taking photos so sometimes wee don't take pictures. As was the case last weekend when we went to visit my sister. I wore two cute outfits, but no photos. Maybe I'll rewear them so we can get some pictures.

I wore this a couple weekends ago to visit my Grandparents for a bit. We hadn't been over in a while, for obvious reasons, but Grandma does get sad when she doesn't see us so we still try to go every few weeks. I don't think Grandpa minds seeing us either, ha ha.

These photos are obviously from before Halloween as I'm at the pumpkin patch, but I feel like pumpkins and gourds are still great decor all the way up through Thanksgiving. I still have all 12 (they were 12 for $20, haha) gourds we bought on this trip and my pumpkin since we didn't have time to carve it.

While I'm all for decorating for Christmas as early as you want I still like to keep it more Fall themed until closer to Thanksgiving (I usually start decorating Thanksgiving night, haha.) This year I'm decorating before - probably this week - since we only have three and a half weeks after Thanksgiving to get all our Christmas cheer out!

On to the outfit, I was originally going to go sans vest, but in the end I knew it would be a bit cold at the pumpkin patch so I threw on one of my faux fur vests to keep the chill off.

Notice something odd about this outfit? If you're saying the pink top - correct! If you have followed my blog for any amount of time you will have noticed I don't wear light colors often. But I bought tee from Everlane a couple years ago because you never know when you'll need a light pink tee. It went perfectly with the flowers on these cherry blossom printed pants but I still feel odd in it. Give me dark colors any day!

I've been wanting to re-wear this outfit for weeks but it's been too darn hot! Then on Saturday we had a day with a bit of a chill to it so I was able to wear it! Wearing this cardigan doesn't add all that much weight to my look but lately I haven't even been wanting to wear t-shirts so this was out of the question. Obviously the sweater didn't stay on all day but I did keep popping it on when I got a bit chilly and needed a bit more than the thin silk dress.

What I love about this outfit is the dress and cardigan are the same length so it creates a nice streamlined look.  I also wish I could wear these sandals more often but they're very old and starting to come apart in certain spots so I don't wear them as often as I used to. They were a weekly or bi-weekly wear back in the day!

The Original:

I wore this over the weekend to do some shopping with my parents. It was almost Spring-like weather so I decided to wear my new Franco Sarto mules before they'll have to go away for a few more weeks once this warm snap disappears. For their first outing I went with a monochromatic blue outfit and threw on a faux fur vest for an extra layer since it was windy.

Happy December!!!!! As is tradition, the day after Thanksgiving, my family went to find our perfect Christmas tree at Jones Family Farm in Shelton, CT. After finding our tree, we head to Grandma's for leftover turkey soup and sandwiches!

I've worn this sweater to get our tree almost every year since I bought it.  In 2014 I wore a fun llama sweater I had just got, but 2013, 2015, 2016 and now 2017 have been all about this Stella McCartney polar bear sweater! It just screams Christmas to me and will never go out of style.

The sweater's story on the blog started in 2011 when I featured it in a "dream" Christmas Tree picking outfit. Little did I know that the following year I would find it in The Outnet's clearance sale (going on now.) It was still pricey at $229, but far better than the regular price of $1075. I've successfully styled it in different ways each time. But this year I had to add another layer since I ran out of different colored tights.

And now pictures of Jones Family Farm, where we've been getting our tree since I was little.
