Living With Great Style

thanksgiving ensemble . . .

Thanksgiving is just a few short days away (I’m counting down the hours and minutes). Although I’m not hosting this year, I’ve been cooking up my families delicious cranberry sauce (recipe here). This year I made three batches – yes, I’m a cranberry sauce-aholic and I have to be sure there are leftovers for the next day.

When thinking about what to wear this year I wanted something comfy and chic. A grey knit sweater with a camel coat is one of my favorite color combinations this season – then spicing it up with a pair of Dries heels and a fur scarf makes it the perfect amount of chic.

What are all of you thinking of wearing for Thanksgiving this year? I can’t wait to be on the road to my aunt and uncle’s.

GIVEAWAY! $100 for Holiday Cards at Minted

Last year, Eric and I couldn’t decide whether or not to send out a holiday card and by the time we wanted to send one, it was far too late. That’s why when November rolled around this year I jumped at the chance to design our first holiday card. The first stop I made was Minted.

After looking through hundreds of designs, I decided to go with the design that Jenna Lyons picked out as the winner of the holiday design contest. When you purchase this design, Minted will donate 15% of gross profit from the sales of Etched to Teach For America. Minted believes in enabling the growth, creativity, and careers of independent designers. Teach For America’s mission is to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation’s most promising future leaders in the effort.”

There are thousands of designs to choose from and there is definitely something for everyone. I can’t wait to see what all of you pick as your favorite. I’m off to go assemble and address mine!

Well, I’m incredibly excited to announce that one lucky reader will win a $100 Minted gift certificate! Just pop over to Minted and then leave a comment here telling us which holiday invitation you would purchase with the certificate.

A winner will be chosen one week from today and please be sure to leave your email address.

a brand new week . . .

After an incredible Saturday photographing our apartment the rest of the weekend was all about enjoying some time at home due to the rainy weather. It was delightful.

A few things inspiring me this week – the first issue of Kinfolk was the perfect read before Thanksgiving, blooms for the house (anemones and paper whites), and lastly a trip to Heath Ceramics to pick up a few presents and some dish ware for the apartment.

I hope all of you have a lovely week ahead whether you’re prepping for Thanksgiving, traveling to visit family or staying close to home. I can’t wait for the holiday weekend – it’s going to be so fun!

Cheers to a wonderful short week of work!

it’s friday + a winner!

I can’t tell you how excited I am that the weekend has finally arrived. Tonight I’ll be prepping the house for a photo shoot on Saturday (very excited about this one!). Flowers have been purchased, different outfit options have been laid out and I hope that by the time I hit my pillow tonight our apartment will smell super clean.

After the shoot it’s going to be all about catching up with friends, doing a little fall shopping, and since rain is in the forecast, I think snuggling up at home with a cup of tea and a good book is needed.

Before you all head into your weekend, I would be forever grateful if you pop over to Facebook to vote for my “Modern Thanksgiving” board I created for a DwellStudio contest.

Finnaly, the winner of the Designer Fluff giveaway – congrats . . . LISA from With Style & Grace! You’ve won two pillows of your choice. We can’t wait to see what you pick out.

Hope all of you have a lovely weekend. I for one hope it goes by quickly because I cannot wait for Thanksgiving next week!

xo, Caitlin

I’m Loving . . .

Finding a cozy corner to sip tea and read my stack of magazines has been one of my favorite pastimes.

On the menu for this weekend – this yummy soup from Sprouted Kitchen. I can’t wait to try it. It’s been on my to-make list for a while.

These chairs have my heart. I’m madly in love with them. Aren’t they divine?

There’s nothing better than a well-styled chunky sweater. I’ve tried to master the look year after year. This one in particular is ultra chic with the skinny black belt.

One last thing I’ve been loving this week – putting together my Modern Thanksgiving board for the DwellStudio contest. I’m a finalist, so if you could pop over and vote for my board I would be forever grateful! Just here click to vote!
