My sweet sister-in-law, Lidija, took some photos of me on Thanksgiving day while we were in Jackson. She is incredibly talented; check out her website! She travels all over for wedding shoots. She's a fabulous photographer! Here is a couple of our engagement pictures that Lidija shot for us at Notre Dame and Saint Mary's!
On the steps of Le Mans ^^
In Lilly on the Ave! (Lidija also went to SMC! And her husband, Mike's oldest brother, also went to ND. Well, all his brothers did. And my other lovely SIL, Molly! And his dad. And aunt Joan and uncle George . LOL. Oh, and cousin, Becca! And cousin Katie at SMC! Have I forgotten anyone, babe?)
^ with the Golden Dome behind us :)
This outfit was super simple to throw together (ideal for a packing situation), and the Winnie Pants I'm wearing offered ample stretch for the turkey, green bean casserole (GBC thanks to Court!), pumpkin pie, apple pie, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, salad and apps I ate! It was really great to be with my in-laws and nephews! :) I can't wait to reunite with the entire Fremeau clan over Christmas break.
I am so obsessed with this vest. I got it a few years ago at J.Crew Factory, but here is a link to my last blog post about it! (I wear it A LOT!)
I am equally obsessed with this elbow-patch shirt!
I bought mine last fall at YM Boutique in Aurora, but they've since re-released some new elbow-patch tops. My friend, Lauren and her sister, Melissa, totally got me hooked on these! The length is perfect- longer to wear with skinny pants. Also, we bought my sister one with pink elbow patches! Adorbs.
This is a great option with black elbow patches. Here's a really similar one to mine for a whopping $8.99!
Here's another version of the elbow-patched shirt for under $10!
I am all about a cropped Winnie pant + a critter sock for winter. I like that you can see a peep of my matching socks when I sit down. Check out these Winnie Pants and critter socks from J. Crew:
PS: best stocking stuffer, too! Especially the J. Crew Factory socks for $4!
I bought these Sofft booties a few years ago, but they are incredibly comfortable. Again, I can't buy a shoe that isn't practical for work. I'm on my feet all day-- there's no way to be in pain! Sofft shoes are really the only work heels I own. They last forever, too!
I love layering chunky necklaces. The top one is super old Loft and the bottom is equally as old Charming Charlies.
Trying layering any of these:
This TJ Maxx version of the puffer vest is currently $22! You can't beat that!
The J. Crew Factory version is only $43! I wear this puffer vest soooo much, guys! You need one. Stat! Also loving this red tartan version. My all-time fave: this splurge from Vineyard Vines.

More comfy brown booties to add to your collection:
Never be scared to mix patterns. It is a fashion risk worth taking!
How is everyone doing back at work this week?
