Chanel-esque

Nov 22, 2016















I am so excited about Thanksgiving! We are having it at my house and I can't wait. I'm making pretty much all the carbs haha, thank heavens my mother-in-law said she'd make the turkeys! Too much pressure lol. I did cook a really good roast tonight though, I have learned a couple secrets: brown it in a pan before you cook it in the crock pot, and add some wine to the broth. It will be the most moist, tender roast you've ever had. I know it's good when my husband goes back for seconds...and thirds haha. Today I also turned my stack of pumpkins into a snowman! I was so glad I saw the tutorial video on Facebook- I hated the thought of wasting those pumpkins! I will share pics soon, I need to add some branches of greenery to it...that will make sense when I share :)

Anyway. I love Chanel-esque jackets. I have quite a few that I have collected over the years, sadly none are authentic Chanel. I have found a great one at Target, a super amazing one at a J Crew sample sale, and this one from Shein. I love how chic these types of jackets are, plus they can be dressed up (LBD), or dressed down like above. You may not be able to tell, but this jacket actually has metallic threading in it, perfect for the holidays!
