Plaid + Giving Thanks

jacket: Hurley, dress: Old Navy, boots: Forever21 (less than $50!), bag: Kate Spade (almost exact), hooos: Sheila Fajl

Happy November! It is crazy to me that Halloween has come and gone and that November is already here. I love November & December, and pretty soon, the Christmas music will be in full force (yes...I start playing it way too early...) I came across this jacket last week, and of course, I wasn't able to turn it down considering it was green and plaid. I have also been looking for a moto jacket, so this was the perfect option (plus, it's a steal!). I paired it with a trusty black Old Navy dress that I've had for awhile and these OTK boots that you're probably tired of seeing. They just work so well with so many things that I can't get enough!

P.S. If you're looking for a great pair of gold hoops, look no further than Sheila Fajl! I've had a hard time with hoop earrings, but these are the only pair I like on myself! There are some larger options as well, but I love that these are dainty. You can find them at Bevello are shop them here.

Now that it's November, I also want to take the time to mention something in each post that I'm thankful for. Today, my grandmother's church lit a memorial candle in honor of her for All Saints Day. I went into it very optimistic, but was uncontrobally sobbing by the middle of the service because of how much it hurt to miss her. Though it's been almost half a year since she passed away, I still think about her almost every hour of every day, and now with the holidays approaching, it has been especially difficult. Though it's hard that my Nonny is no longer here, I am so thankful for all of the incredible memories that I have of our 24 years together + a relationship that was so valuable and irreplaceable. How lucky am I to have known somebody and something that saying goodbye is so awful. -- The Other Side of the Mountain

  1. Seriously loving that jacket girl! SO cute and perfect for fall. The leather sleeves make it a little edgy but still super cute and fun! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  2. You look beautiful and I can't believe the jacket is Hurley!! I'm so sorry yesterday was a hard day for you - it's so clear how much your grandmother was loved by all and she's continually looking down on you!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. One word for this look: fierce!
    You are rocking it! xx

  4. Those OTK boots are amazing, I had them in my cart but I hesitated and then they sold out in my size. I think it is wonderful taking the time in each post during the month to be thankful. My grandmother passed two years ago and I was in FL with her for the last few years and I am so thankful to have those memories with her :-)

  5. Love that jacket and how you styled it with that dress!! I'm so sorry that yesterday was a tough day for you too. But I love how you mentioned how thankful you are to have so many memories with your grandmother. I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your weekend and that you have a great day today too! :-)

  6. Great jacket! Your OTK boots always look so stylish. I love the idea of sharing what you are thankful for. I'm glad her church remembered her well.

    And I understand where you're coming from... We lost my grandma nearly 7 years ago but still miss her every day. She was incredibly special! But like you said, it's a blessing to have those wonderful memories and to have known someone so worth missing.


  9. I am so sorry that you have such a heavy heart this week. What a lovely thing that your grandma's church did for her. I am sure that this season will be hard, but like you said you had 24 great years with here and your love with continue on.

    Love the olive and black plaid jacket, so unique and fabulous!
