Where did this year go? I keep asking myself that! The fact that it is almost the end of 2016 is crazy! It has gotten much colder here this week and I am really aware of the fact that the end of the year is looming. Thanksgiving is a time for us all to reflect on what we are thankful for. I try not to rely on Thanksgiving to remind myself to be grateful but it is a great time of year.
So many things have changed this year and I have so much to be thankful for. For one thing, this blog! It was only a few months ago that I started Waketon Road and I am so grateful for the community that has grown from it. I have “met” so many amazing people through this blog and I am so happy to fill my days with positivity and inspiration. I started this journey without too many expectations and I could not be happier with the opportunities that have come thus far.
Since the holidays are all about family, I am thankful to be able to spend so much time with mine. Family means everything to me and I am grateful for them every single day. Brian and I have been together since we were in high school, so we are very close with each others families. I always look forward to seeing all of the extended family around this time of year. We all have our own traditions and schedules but I am so happy when we all end up in the same room.
I have been thinking about what I want to wear for Thanksgiving. Am I the only person who associates Thanksgiving with camel, hunter greens and burgundy? I seem to always wear those colors around the holiday so it has become a kind of tradition. I like to get a little dressed up for the holidays but comfort is always my number one priority. I’m thinking stretchy pants and an oversized sweater just like this look.
Recently I jumped on the faux leather leggings bandwagon. I’m not saying they are something I would wear all of the time, but I think with the right outfit they are great! With the colder weather over the weekend I felt like it was time to break them out. They were great to break up all of my camel. I admit I have a slight obsessed with camel, but I think it’s under control. Right? Camel is such a classic color. I’ve talked about it on the blog before, but I just feel like you can never go wrong!
Around the holidays I start to add a little pop of red to my makeup routine. There is nothing more festive than a red lip. I recently found a few shades that I love, like the Bite in Red Velvet I am wearing in these photos. It’s such a true red and has amazing staying power. Something I always need from my reds.
I am curious what you are thankful for this year? Let me know in the comments! I have one of my favorite gift guides going live tomorrow morning – it’s all under $50! See you tomorrow! xo Bryn
