Friendsgiving Traditions with Express

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year. This year in particular has been a crazy ride moving to Los Angeles, but little did I know I'd be surrounded by some of my best friends going through all the holidays, moments, and life together. 

In the spirit of creating new traditions, my best friend Bethany and I have gotten to partner with Express to share a moment of our mini friendsgiving in the mountains. We wanted a chance to enjoy the cooler weather, still moments before the holiday craze, have some early desserts ;), and take time to write some notes to our family who we can't see this month. Creating unexpected holiday traditions like this have been more memorable because they're new ways to celebrate.

We picked some of our favorite holiday wear with cozy sweaters, comfy denim leggings, and even some table decor to set up. See all the details for the pieces below:

Holiday Feast By The Lake

Happy November! It's officially that time of year for celebrations, feasts, get togethers, and more! This weekend was spent with a friends gathering on the lake sharing a lovely spread together. Creating moments like this are some of my favorite things to do. I envisioned a beautiful table set in beautiful scenery, and couldn't have done it without the help of creative friends. Also couldn't have done it without the perfect outfit, blankets, and record player from Urban Outfitters. All these finishing touches made it the ultimate gathering to be had. See the details below:
