What I Wore: I Heart Cognac

I am SO excited for Thanksgiving! 
It is tied with the 4th of July as my favorite holiday! I am so THANKFUL for a short work week so that I can spend time with my family and friends out in Scottsdale, AZ. WOOHOO! I have already attended two Thanksgiving festivities with friends and I was able to avoid Gluten. Stuffing is my favorite and I was so sad to not have a single bite BUT very proud that I didn't succumb to temptation. Thank the lord for sweet potato dishes becasue I load up! So I am not too worried about eating healthy and avoiding gluten for the REAL celebration. 

Do you have a favorite dish?
What are your Thanksgiving plans?

I have to tell you guys that my love affair with cognac boots is alive and kicking. I am having a hard time finding outfits that DON'T look good with them. They are the perfect pop that completes the look yet still stands out.  I have LOVED playing around with neutrals, specifically black and gray, with the cognac. Most people would pair black boots with this look, but that was too tame for what I was going for. This may be a basic outfit but I think that it is just different enough to make a statement. As it gets cooler I think pairing a bright colored cowl or scarf with the look will be even sassier. Do you have a pair of cognac boots in your wardrobe? If not, buy them. Seriously. You need!

  1. Mandy, congrats on avoiding gluten! Is everything going okay? I make a mean gluten-free chocolate chip cookie that tastes for real, so if you're in the market for a smattering of sugar just say the word. Have an awesome Thanksgiving in AZ and TAKE THE BOOTS ALONG!
