So I stuffed my face with cranberry sauce.

Yes, I just can’t help myself.

Does cranberry sauce not go with EVERYTHING THOUGH?

Like cranberry sauce x stuffing…YES?

Cranberry sauce x turkey…YES?

Cranberry sauce x pasta…SO MUCH YES?

Cranberry sauce x sweet potatoes…YES YES YES?

I mean it even goes with corn bread?

We’re getting off track but really it does go with everything.

During this time of year, I just really love my cranberry sauce. I also love my knee-high boots.

Reason being: knee high heel boots are slimming after the major cranberry, cornbread, sweet potato moments.

Much needed !!

In other news: how was your Thanksgiving? Anything fun? We ended up going to my parent’s house AND of course Michael’s parent’s house. We did a lot of mingling, eating, & a little drinking.

SO on that note, I figured I’d show you guys what I wore in the days leading up to Thanksgiving: knee highs.

I know it’s cliché but I’m kind of obsessed.

There are a couple reasons why: 1.) you can roll them DOWN. 2.) they really flatter the leg and 3.) they’re hot AF. Every girl needs a pair. I mean I just really like how they lengthen the leg. Ideal after too much cranberry sauce.

I paired these boots from Nordstrom with Michael’s shirt. Nordstrom has a ton of amazing boots right now— our poor, poor bank accounts. And there’s nothing I love more than experimenting with the guy’s clothes. There’s something very sexy about men’s clothes, right? Lastly I added a severe middle part with super slick, straight hair & I was good to go.

I feel like this is one of those outfits that doesn’t even need makeup. CHIC, SLEEK, TO THE POINT.

  6. Cranberry sauce is my life during the holidays. We have a family recipe for our own with orange, apple and cranberries (duh!). My mom makes it for the table and then puts some of it in muffins. 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, Lauryn!

    1. YUM! That sounds SO good. I’ll have to give it a try especially on some muffins. Thanks for sharing it Breanne! xx

  7. Okay. Phew! I thought I was the only person who DEVOURED cranberry sauce (homemade, of course!) I kept seeing on Thanksgiving day that people thought it was a waste and I’m over here like HUH?! They must be eating the shit out of the can haha
