So this post should have been posted weeks ago, but I am a firm believer on fashionably late, or rather three weeks late! So here is a recap of my fabulous Thanksgiving break spent in Connecticut!

To fill you in a little more about me, I have been known to overpack a time or two. Okay okay, I can hear my mother saying.. try every time! Usually I am the girl who can't lift her suitcase into the overhead compartment! So, I have been trying to turn over a new leaf! The last two trips I have taken, one to CT and one to Philly, I have been setting out my outfits prior to packing! I think it has helped eliminate packing clothes that I just won't wear! Now I'm not perfect so it's a work in progress! 

The outfit I finally decided on! It was quite chilly in CT this weekend!! 

My mom and I worked really hard to put out all these delicious appetizers!

Mediterranean Polenta Bites

Sweet Brandy Cranberry Brie- definitely a favorite

Smoked Trout Green Apples

Smoked Salmon Cucumber Bites

Sun dried Tomato Stuffed Mushrooms

Pomegranate Drinks!

My gorgeous mom and sister

My happy family! Can't wait to see these three in Florida!

  1. Ooo I love the pink sweater outfit!! I do the same thing when packing; lay out all my outfits to make sure I'm not bringing too much extra. And yum - that food looks amazing!!

  2. Thank you so much Darcy for checking it out!! It must be a girl thing! I love bringing extra! Girl needs options!

    The Pink Sweater was Gap

    The Blue Shirt was J Crew

    The Necklace was South Moon- and I can't find it anywhere :(
