Kids’ Thanksgiving Style

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away! Like most, I love spending time with my family. My father is such a great cook and I look forward to his grilled turkey and hand mashed potatoes each fall. Getting three children dressed and out the door is definitely a lot of work! I have their coordinating outfits ready to go this year. Christmas and Easter are the holidays when I splurge a bit more, and get a little more “fancy”. I like to keep Thanksgiving attire simple and affordable for our family.

Here is my Kaia girl in a chambray jumper from Target. Click here for this exact Cat & Jack jumper, or see the products below for a similar look.



Grayson James.. he gave me a run for my money trying to get a nice picture of him in his Thanksgiving outfit. Below is the best I could with my wild, almost-two-year old! I included a flat lay, so you could actually see the clothing. Yikes!



Last but not least, sweet Reece. He is seriously an angel! He is also rocking his big brother’s hand-me-down sweater, which is just life with three small children. I am happy we are getting another wear out of this collared sweater.


Hopefully I will be able to get a picture of these three cuties together, or our family of five, on Thanksgiving.. I won’t hold my breath though! I can’t blame my toddler for not wanting to sit still and pose. “Let them be little”, right!?

November Style

I cannot believe October has come and gone. I enjoyed all things Halloween with my children, and am getting excited about the upcoming holiday season! I live in the Midwest, and our typical November weather has arrived. We have seen quite a bit of rain recently, gloomy days and much cooler temps.. like I have had to bust out my winter jacket already type of temps.

This is the outfit I wore for this chilly November day. This striped midi dress is comfortable and modest; ideal for a teacher. It has pockets, as well, which I think is a great touch. I wore my neutral Fendi scarf and Vince Camuto suede booties. I love how they coordinate so well! And the denim jacket… I feel as though this is a staple in a teacher’s wardrobe. I wear my denim jacket over a variety of dresses or sleeveless blouses. It allows me to generalize my clothing across the seasons and weather changes.

My dress is from the Fancy Frills Boutique, which you can view their website by clicking here, or their Instagram page by clicking here.

Crop pants, booties & sweater


I wore this fall outfit to work today. I am a teacher, so professional, yet practical dress, is an every day must. I am on my feet all day and the classrooms are typically cold. I was so comfortable the whole school day in this outfit. The mornings are cold, but the afternoons have been so warm and sunny. I love this time of year!

I love this LC Lauren Conrad blouse. I find the prints and details are always so feminine and pretty in her lines. The button details are usually my favorite.

I purchased these Vince Camuto booties at Nordstrom Rack this summer before the year started. I love them! I always look for a low heel, because I am pretty tall. These boots are so comfortable, and the detailed sides are flattering on my feet and ankles. I have not been able to find this exact pair, but linked some very similar booties from Vince Camuto. All linked booties are under $80.00!

Happy Friday Eve, all!
