Goodbye November

How was everyone's Thanksgiving?! Is the time flying or what? I can't believe it's already December.  I ate entirely too much over the Thanksgiving holiday, but it was beautiful to say the least. For those that know me personally know that I come from 2 very large families. My dad and brothers flew in from Texas, and we had Thanksgiving dinner at my grandmas. My family members have moved all over the U.S. so I had aunts/uncles and cousins coming in from Florida, Pittsburgh, Detroit, New York...I mean I could go forever. Because everyone lives so far we don't get together on my dad's side as much but everyone came home for this Thanksgiving and it was such a treat. I literally ate my weight in food. We had 3 turkeys, 4 hams, homemade macaroni, greens, dressing (black people's stuffing :) ) spaghetti, ribs and I'm probably missing so much more! For dessert we had several sweet potato pies going, strawberry cheesecake, chocolate cheesecake, ice cream cake, apple cobbler, peach cobbler...I'm not kidding when I say I can keep going. :) It was so much fun though, we laughed until we cried, we played games, took countless selfies, and meaningful conversations, and most of all loved so hard on one another for the holiday.

So since we are now officially within the holiday season...'tis the season to slay honey! Sharing my favorite fall look with you guys. These thigh high boots have made several appearances on this blog...but the weather has been so nice here in the Chi, and I'm rocking these as much as I can before they have to be put up until next year. :) I paired my fave boots with this cute babydoll dress from Lulus. Never thought I could pull off a babydoll dress because I have wider hips, and shorter flowy dresses such as these make me look frumpy and the hem is super high. However when paired with some over the knee/thigh highs such as mine...they really elongate the body, and really gives the babydoll dress a different look! This dress was so cute, and it had bell sleeves! If you haven't already noticed, I'm getting into fabrics that move with my body, and not so much the tight/fitted looks. They just make me feel good. :)

Dress: Lulus | Boots: Lolashoetique

I've been missing in action on social media, but I'm back! I wanted to be completely present when I was with my family over the holiday, and enjoy every second with them. :)
