Happy Thanksgiving week! I’m so looking forward to Thanksgiving. I can’t wait to have a few days to just relax and spend time with my family and (hopefully) take a little break from work.
This is one of my go-to fall outfits. Anytime I throw my Barbour Beadnell jacket on I feel so chic and put-together, but in a very relaxed and outdoorsy way, you know? It’s so Kate-Middleton-out-for-a-stroll-on-her-estate. And if you ask me that is the best possible look you could go for.
I originally asked for my Barbour Beadnell jacket for Christmas one year right before Black Friday because I knew there was an incredible deal at Tuckernuck. I’m sure they’ll be running it again this year! I think it’s one of the only times you’ll find this jacket on sale. I had been thinking about getting a Barbour for years, and I absolutely have loved wearing it. My only regret is that I didn’t get one sooner!
I got these booties from Payless a few years ago and they’ve held up so well! I rarely wear heels because I’m so tall already, but whenever I do I always feel like I have a spring in my step. I need to remember that and wear heels more often!
I took these photos over the weekend, which happened to coincide with “The Game.” The Game is what everyone calls the annual Harvard-Yale football game. It’s always the weekend before Thanksgiving and it is a huge deal. The tailgating is legendary and it is a super fun excuse to dress up in all of our ridiculous Harvard gear and engage in what is, undoubtedly, the most pretentious football rivalry in the world. The only downside about The Game is that it is in mid-to-late November, meaning it is often freezing. Seriously, when I was at The Game a few years ago we brought blankets to sit on and wrap around ourselves, huge scarves, Harvard wool hats, hand- warmers, gloves, etc. We all were wearing a million layers and were still struggling to make it through! But it’s also such a quintessential Harvard experience and even with the cold it’s worth it.
I hope everyone enjoys this super short week! Is there a problem that a two day weekend, followed by two days of work, and then five days off feels like all I can handle right now?? Don’t answer that.
