Thanksgiving is always a fun holiday for me. Even if I view it as the start of Christmas season. Don't get me wrong, I am thankful and blessed beyong measure, but Thanksgiving doesn't always get full credit, ya know?
Growing up we always drove to Bienville, Louisiana to my great-grandmother's house. My grandfather is one of a bajillion kids so there was always so many people that wanted to get together. We would get up early and drive to this tiny little house in the middle of what seemed to be nowhere. The house is probably just like you're imagining it—old, totally leaning and full of love. There is this cane patch behind the house that I remember thinking was the coolest thing growing up. We would cut down sticks and then my grandpa would sharpen the end (super duper safe).
This year we loaded up and made the trek to LA like the good 'ole days. I am grateful to still have this time with my grandpa. I'm also thankful for a family that still likes being together. Also thankful for pecan pie, and lots of it.
Currently really loving all things velvet and Levi's. The 700 collection from Levi's is my favorite. The 711 Skinny and 721 High-Rise Skinny jeans fit like a glove. Jean color is a great dark color with a little texture called "cast shadows." I am usually a fan of basic pieces from Old Navy. Sizing can be weird at Old Navy, but I've learned to size down! Sadly, my necklace isn't being sold anymore, but the one linked is rad!
