At this point in the year I always find myself falling hard for fall! With Thanksgiving just days away there is no denying that the holiday season is in full swing. Thanksgiving means three things: family gatherings, cute outfits, and sales! That's right, I said sales! We'll get to that a little later. First, let's talk about cute outfits! There are two trends that are taking the lead in this year's holiday style race - knits and prints.

Is there anything as fabulous as a cozy sweater on a chilly day? I don't think so either! There is something about throwing on your favorite jeans or leggings with a cozy sweater that is absolute perfection! I actually can't imagine a better outfit for your Thanksgiving feast! Now I know what your thinking, won’t a sweater look frumpy for  Thanksgiving? Allow me to introduce you to a new generation of knitwear. Gone are the days of lumpy, frumpy, ugly sweaters! This season’s knits have taken the fashion world by storm. They are so versatile and a must! A good sweater can be dressed up for a night on the town or edged up with a pair of leather leggings. A good sweater will take you from your desk to the office holiday party! Think cute, cozy, and chic! 

One of my favorite sweater trends at the moment is embellishment! How adorable is this lace up front sweater? The little extra details make all the difference. Some of the best details to look for in sweaters are neckline, hemline, and embellishments. I love a good neckline! Whether it is cowl neck, cutout or completely off the shoulder, a neckline can change the entire feel of a sweater. Choose the silhouette that best flatters your individual body type. Next, find a sweater who's color speaks to you! We all look good in certain colors. I tend to favor a rich cobalt blue or pale pink! What shade best suits you? My favorite sweater trend this season is embellishment! Look for knits that feel special in their design. Style is in the details! Whether it's stripes, tassels or ties, find that special detail that speaks to you! Once you find your perfect sweater, pair it with jeans or leggings depending on the length of the sweater and occasion. Then, pair it with fall’s other hot trend...BOOTS! You'll be perfectly wardrobed for all of your upcoming occasions!

If fall 2016 had to be summed up in one word it would be PRINTS. Prints are leading the pack this fall and I am loving it! There are three specific trends that are on fire for fall: plaids, florals, and animal prints! Now I know what you’re thinking, hasn't plaid been a fall trend for years? Well, this year's plaid has been reinvented and used in some fresh and unexpected ways! No longer reserved for bulky flannel fabrics, plaid has been        revamped this season. Think of it as a new spin on a fall staple! You will find plaid sprinkled throughout scarves, vest, and even blouses. There is nothing that screams fall like an autumn hued plaid scarf. I love a good plaid blanket scarf with a colorful piko top and jeans! Look for plaid in unexpected places like this fabulous plaid vest, or combine two of fall’s hottest trends with this lace up plaid blouse! The possibilities are endless and can be customized to your personal style preference! 

Take a walk on the wild side this season in fall's wildest trend, Animal Print! Whether it's leopard or python, you will be right on trend. I love this leopard top paired with leather leggings and booties. This look is perfect for a holiday party or a date night! Speaking of parties, how fabulous would this python dress be at a holiday party? You can dress it up with heels for an event or make it more casual by adding some layers. This python dress could be paired with a long black open front sweater and black over the knee boots for a more casual look. My absolute favorite way to wear animal print is in my footwear! These leopard booties are the perfect way to amp up a simple black dress or add some pizazz to your favorite jeans! I feel that an animal print bootie is a must have for this fall and holiday season. Don't be afraid to walk on the wild side this year! 

Finally, let's talk about sales! Thanksgiving weekend sales have been a part of my familie’s holiday traditions for as long as I can remember! The excitement of making your list and checking it twice. The feeling of the holiday rush and victory you feel when you select the perfect gift at a fabulously discounted price!
