Holiday Dinner Outfit Inspiration

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving! We did, but I think I could have found a little more room for some food in my left leg. My brother-in-law made this amazing smoked turkey that I couldn’t get enough of! But after all the cookies, potatoes, stuffing, and everything else I’m ready to get back into my gym and healthy eating routines. Today I thought I would share what I wore for Thanksgiving dinner. It might not help you with Thanksgiving dinner this year, but I think this can be worm all season long. So, hopefully you can find some holiday dinner outfit inspiration in this post. I think the best way to dress up your holiday dinner outfit is to keep it classic. Christmas dinner is not the time to experiment. Of course the level of “dressiness” depends on your facility traditions. Sometimes corduroys, a tattersall shirt, and pair of country brogues is the perfect holiday dinner outfit. Perhaps your family tradition is to keep things completely casual. If that’s the case, a pair of dark jeans, oxford shirt, a chunky sweater and pair of boots is perfect. In…

Shawl Collar Sweater

Oh man it was pretty chilly today! This shawl collar sweater kept me warm though. Layered with one of my favorite OCBDs underneath, I had to keep my self cooled off when I went back inside. I spent most of the day running errands, and the freedom to pop in and out of the car without worrying about grabbing a jacket, putting it on, taking it off, etc. was a treat. This sweater and shirt combination was enough to keep me toasty during my journeys with temps in the mid 40s. A shawl collar is also a fantastic way to add a little extra flair to a cold weather outfit without hunting around for scarf or bundling up into too many layers. I know there’s a huge, currently running trend right now focusing on layering for fall. In fact I’m even a proponent of it. But sometimes I just want to throw on a pair of jeans and a sweater and get on with my day. A shawl collar sweater like this adds some uniqueness without weighing you down too much. There’s a cardigan-like quality that adds a little extra sophistication too. If…

OOTD: What I Wore for St. Patrick’s Day

I had a great St. Patrick’s Day post planned for last week that was completely thrown off by Stella. The kids were home for days on end, and I just wasn’t able to get it pulled together. I probably should have. I’m still struggling with getting out as many posts as I’d like. But I guess this is all part of the writing process. What I can do is take a look at what I wore on St. Patrick’s Day and share that with you…

Twillory Is Crushing It Right Now!

Twillory Is Crushing It Right Now! A constant refrain in my house is, “I’m going to write a letter.”  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve uttered this in either joy or frustration.  I honestly believe that “feedback is the breakfast of champions” (a key quote from one of my favorite management books).  I have learned over the years to try and take feedback as objectively as possible, but I have also learned that the only way to encourage or change something is to give feedback. This blog has given me a much stronger voice than just a single letter or tweet from a customer.  While I have written some critical reviews, I also want to use that voice for for good to encourage companies to keep doing what they’re doing.  Recently I had an experience shopping online with Twillory that I just had to write about.  I’ll talk about the shirts for a few minutes too, but first I want to run through what has now made me a loyal customer. I took the opportunity to use two promos to try six shirts from Twillory for $300.  I think $50 per shirt is…
