Happy Friday Friends! 

How’s life? How was your week? Ours definitely flew by, which is my favorite kind of week! I don’t know what it was, but I just felt super inspired all week. I was getting up early, getting things done at work, I was super productive at home in the evenings and went to bed at a decent hour, like every night. Cough, cough, like 9:30. Who am I?? 

Oh and one more thing. I literally only had one glass of wine all week. Could this be the reason why?? I’ll keep you guys updated. 

In other news, I’m not sure if you guys have noticed or not, but the past few Fridays, I have been trying to show more weekend outfits for you all. Specifically going out and date night outfits. This Ayana Sweet Heart Dress has been a total show stopper for me. The moment I put it on the other evening, before heading out, Colton goes, “Wow, you look really good! I really like that dress!”. Which obviously made me feel super confident when going out! I also just love the details on this dress. This Ayana Sweet Heart Dress is also under $100 so total plus there too! While I would not wear this to a Holiday party, I will be wearing this dress when going out to dinner with my girlfriends, as soon as they get in town for the holidays. 

I also love these Steve Madden booties because they are surprisingly super elongating. I was a little hesitant to get them at first, just because every girl I have seen wearing them, are like 6 feet tall and total model status. I wasn’t sure how they would look on my 5 foot frame – lol. 

One more thing! I’ve been getting asked on Snapchat from a lot of you guys what lip color I have been wearing all week, and it’s this Stila Lip Stain in Patine. I highly recommend it and love the color, but because it is a lip stain, it can dry out your lips pretty fast so be sure to put some sort of lip balm over it! 

 I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Colton and I are heading to Waco for the whole weekend to work on a fun project, as well as see Baylor play! 

Have a great weekend! 

xo,

Lauren

Almost one week until Thanksgiving guys! My goodness, the Holidays have really come fast this year.I’m not complaining though, because I love everything about the Holiday’s, especially Thanksgiving.

Christmas can just get a little hectic, ya know? Plus, there is way more stress during Christmas time. Thanksgiving on the other hand, way more laid back. 

The problem with Thanksgiving in Texas, is that you never know if we’re going to have nice fall weather, or if it is going to be almost 90 degrees. Last year, we were closer to the 90 degree mark. It was the worst

When I received this dress last week, I immediately knew I would be wearing it on Thanksgiving. I love the color, because burgundy is the color of the season. I love the fact that it is flow-y (super important for Thanksgiving!), light weight, and the fact that it is so easy to dress up or down. It’s also incredibly soft! I paired this dress with these lace up heels to make me feel taller and leaner, then added this scarf, just in case we have cooler weather. If not, no worries – I’ll just take it off! 

The other great thing about this dress is that it is only $14.99 so #winning lol. I’m not going to lie, when I pulled this dress out of the bag, I wasn’t “Oh my god” impressed. Then when I went to put it on, I was more than presently surprised. Like it literally fit perfectly and like I said before, is so soft

Last year, I shared with you guys this post on my tips for dressing for Thanksgiving. I’ve applied all of my same rules to this year, except I mixed it up a bit! 

A key thing to remember, is that you don’t have to dress frumpy to dress comfortably. 

What do you guys like to wear on Thanksgiving?
