Pack for Thanksgiving With the Family
I feel like Thanksgiving is a lost holiday. With Christmas getting bigger and bigger every year (the avg amount spent on gifts in Dallas alone is $534), Thanksgiving is getting skipped over and thought about less and less.
This makes me so sad! I love Thanksgiving and it is definitely something I look forward to every year. Wow, I just got teary eyed just typing. I am such a baby sometimes!!
As I get older, I realize more and more just how important family is. Time with them is so precious and should not be taken for granted.
Troy and I spend every Thanksgiving with his parents in Omaha, NE. Most couples go back and forth with Thanksgiving and Christmas each year, but we consistently go to Omaha every year for Thanksgiving. This is because my little sister is in medical school and doesn’t get much time off for Thanksgiving, but she does get to come home for Christmas. Troy knows how important she is to me, so he has sacrificed seeing his family for Christmas for me. That’s love guys.
It is also why I love Thanksgiving so much. I know that I get to see his family and friends every November and it is something I always look forward starting Jan 1. Now that we both work from home (long story), we will get to start spending more and more time with them! This year we are staying for a full week starting Monday!
If you saw Tuesday’s post, you read that it is a bit colder there than in Dallas. That’s why I stocked up on cold weather accessories from Marks & Spencer. Read below for ideas and tips on how to pack for Thanksgiving.
One of my favorite things to buy from Marks & Spencer is cashmere. I own this sweater I am wearing in these photos in two colors and I could honestly buy all of them (12 colors total)! This oatmeal color just goes with everything and is a little dressier, which makes it perfect for thanksgiving.
Cashmere is also a great holiday gift idea! See the complete cashmere collection here. You can grab gloves, scarves, sweaters, wraps, and so much more! Their cashmere collection is really inexpensive and you seriously can’t beat the quality!!
Cold Weather Accessories from Marks & Spencer
Marks & Spencer is a retailer that has just about everything you need. Right now they have the most amazing Christmas shop that you should definitely check out!
They also have a great selection of cold weather accessories including scarfs, beanies, and gloves. This fur pom beanie I am wearing here is only $25 and comes in five pretty colors. Here are a few more I am loving (just click on the photo to shop), but make sure to see their entire Winter Hat collection:
My red gloves add such a great pop of color my beige sweater! It is definitely an eye catcher and head turner! These gloves are only $10 and come in 5 colors that match the fur pom beanies!
Here are some more gloves I am loving:
If you are looking for a scarf to go with your accessories, head to Marks & Spencer! They have a massive collection of amazing scarves. I have especially been eyeballing all of the cashmere and knit pieces.
Best Coats for Traveling
Marks & Spencer has a great collection of coats and jackets, but some are better for traveling than others. I like one that can be easily packed into a carry-on, like this quilted and padded jacket I am wearing here. It is also really warm, comfortable, and stylish! It also comes in a beautiful mink color as well.
Did I mention this gorgeous jacket is under $100 and comes with free shipping?
This wool coat below is also one of my favorites and one of Marks & Spencer’s all-time best selling item! It comes in 8 colors, but here are my favorites:
