Giving thanks…for a great wardrobe

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  As I prepare for a relaxing, holiday weekend at home I find myself already dressing for the occasion.  This light, airy, and loose chiffon shirtdress is as comfortable as pajamas but formal enough for the dinner table.  The geometric scarf print gives it structure while the tank dress underneath gives you form.  Pair with your favorite heels, a subtle necklace, and a stylish tote.  Choose a tote that’s large enough to use as an overnight bag if your holiday includes a quick jaunt out of town and can carry all day without raising eyebrows. This bag is structured with a sharp mix of faux leather and snakeskin and has handles as well as a shoulder strap  Perfect for both a holiday weekend and the workday that comes right before. Have a great weekend everyone!

 

Tis the seasoning

Hello my lovelies!  The holiday season is upon us and for those of you in the U.S., Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  It’s a time for loved ones to gather, usually for an extravagant meal, and whoever prepares it becomes an artist in the kitchen with the audience of the year. I’m sure that this close to the day, you already have your plans mapped out and the shopping completed, but if you’re still wondering how to make the event just a little more special, I’ve asked my dear friend Annie for a few suggestions to share with you.  Annie is a marvelous cook, and has given me a few super simple recipes for rustic, artisan side dishes that can be used to spice up your Thanksgiving spread or as vegetarian alternatives.  They all use seasonal produce, so whenever possible look for organic options or buy items fresh from your local farmer’s market.  The perfect hostess is always sensitive to the dietary needs of her guests, so in any of the dishes below, you can substitute in soy, almond, or rice milk; your favorite alternative sweetener; soy yogurt or vegan butter.  Bon appetit!
