For several years running, I hosted our big family Thanksgiving. (Well, I made the turkey and a couple of sides, and everyone brought a little something.) Until the last couple of years, when it’s been just the two of us (2020) and just the three of us this year. (Jeune homme was able to come stay for the weekend.) Some of the extended family were traveling this year, so we’re catching up with everyone next weekend for Hanukkah.
I put this outfit on for Thursday and was so comfortable I decided not to mess with success, so wore it Friday and Saturday as well. (By Sunday, it was time for those pants to be laundered.😆) Other than a quick grocery run early Thanksgiving morning for the inevitable One Thing I Forgot, I barely left the house except to walk the dog.
We had such a nice long weekend with our son! He’s really mellowed out in the last couple of years, and is more independent. He and Gigi are pals, and he enjoys going out with us to walk her. And for the first time that I can remember, he asked for a kiss as he was leaving to go back to his group home. 🥰
Whenever I post an outfit with shorter pants and bare ankles, I’m inevitably asked “what do you do when it gets cold?” Our winters are certainly milder than some. We don’t have snow, ice or (usually) freezing temperatures. But when it does get truly chilly, I’ll wear socks or switch to ankle boots (or both).
Usually I’ll try to coordinate my socks with the colors in my outfit, or go for something neutral. But at times, I go a little wild with a fun pattern…
For those who celebrate, wishing you a Hanukkah filled with beauty, family, love and light!
