Thanksgiving by the Lake

The weather on Thanksgiving this year was so perfect for being outdoors. Although black Friday has made its way to ruining its true purpose, this is my favorite holiday because of what its for: giving thanks.  I hope everyone spent the day filled with lots of love and delicious home cooked food. As for black Friday, I can’t imagine myself in a line for hours just waiting for a store to open.  Not to mention, having to deal with people who are willing to fight, push and shove their way through. Definitely not for me.  For those who were brave (and patient) enough to head out at the crack of dawn, how was it?

ps. The photos above aren’t the only ones I took on Thanksgiving, check out the little collage I made with my iPhone below. xo

    You look amazing, Lauren!!! I love these colors on you. The whole ensemble is just gorgeous and goes perfectly with the scenery! Looks like you had a nice, relaxing holiday & day after. I never brave the crowds on Black Friday myself — I just do my shopping online! ;) Hope you have a fabulous weekend, dear.

    Gorgeous! I’m so loving this outfit- wish I was wearing it :) I’ve been looking for sunglasses like that, they’re a great shape. And got to love some sparkly shoes! xx

    Lauren, you look fantastic! Love the colors even more on your blog (I saw the sneaky peeks on your Instagram). That purse is to die for and so are the shoes. You are a beautiful lady :)

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

    Looking very pretty :) And yes, I’m jealous of the fact that it’s so sunny there and you can wear dresses without tights!
