What I Wore: H&M leopard top

We now have a few H&M stores in town but sometimes they are hard to look through since it seems like stuff is everywhere in there and not well organized. I decided to give ordering online a try and ordered this $10 "jersey top" a couple of months ago that comes in a ton of colors. It's really just a thin soft flowy top.. not sure why it is called jersey. It was perfect with a camisole underneath it but if you got it in a darker color then you might not need it.

I don't usually like to take photos inside because the lighting isn't as good but it was raining outside.

Christmas Mantle

Our Christmas mantle this year is just slightly different from last year. Of course the wooden reindeer I got at HomeGoods last year had to be up there again.

And I also added these wooden vintage snowmen my godmother made me several years back. These are really special to me because she made their hats out of my godfather's socks who passed away suddenly 5 years ago. Now whenever I look at the mantle (which is often because it is sorta opposite our couches and I just love our mantle) I think of him :)

The Santa basket on the floor is also from my godmother. And the stockings were made by my mom. The garland is from target.

Whenever we are home we have our mantle lights and tree lights on because you can only enjoy them for what seems like such a short amount of time... and where in the world is the month of December going?!?

Here is the mantle from last year. One year I'm going to think about doing something more white/silvery/gold instead of the typical red and green.

Clemson vs. Syracuse Reunion Weekend

This was the 8th year that we had our roommate reunion in Clemson! This year it was the Clemson vs. Syracuse weekend of Oct 19th.

Eric and I drove down to Clemson Friday afternoon and walked around downtown with Vickie and her boyfriend Kelly. It also happened to be Clemson's Homecoming so we got to see some of the Bowman floats.

Eric and I had some time to kill before having dinner at Mellow Mushroom so we went to one of our favorite spots on campus... the amphitheater.

Then we went to Mellow Mushroom and met up with some roomies and friends at Tiger Town like we do every year. The next morning we were out at Strom bright and early for the Morgan tailgate graciously hosted by Vickie's parents each year. We had breakfast and caught up with everyone and watched some tv.

We had lunch and played tailgate games.

I was able to see my other friend named Brooke and her sweet family for a few minutes.

Husband and I.

Of course we had to do a roomie photo session. Love these 3 so much!

Then we headed into Death Valley before kickoff. Night games are always really fun even if it makes for a long day and no relaxing at Tiger Town afterwards.

CLEMSON WON! And all the girls from the tailgate (roomies and friends) were able to get a photo together. That wraps up another wonderful roommate reunion in Tiger Town! So glad w are able to get together every year!

What I Wore: Thanksgiving

We had Thanksgiving last week at the in-laws in Columbia. While they do not dress up for Thanksgiving, I think it is always good to look a little bit nicer for a family dinner like that. I suppose you could call this a What We Wore since Eric is in the photo too (although don't mind his flip flops... guy never gets cold). It was a really nice cool day outside and I wanted to wear a scarf even indoors so a way to tie it without it feeling too hot around your neck is to tie it in a low double knot. You still get the look of a cute scarf accessory without feeling too hot inside the house. Also this tunic is super comfortable and has pockets in the front that are kind of hard to see in this photo... great item to have in your closet paired with leggings or skinny jeans!

Striped tunic: Nordstrom, very similar, similar  love that Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns by mail!
