Closet Confessions and Tofurkey

Happy Wednesday {for me Happy Friday} !
I hope everyone is getting ready for lots of turkey and fixings tomorrow!  I will be celebrating with meatless beef-tips and veggie-friendly side dish on the table.  With my parents now living in Ohio, I spend Thanksgiving with my husband's family here in NC.  My mother-in-law is sweet enough to make me a vegetarian dish every Thanksgiving even though they are complete carnivores.  She has even started making meat-free collards, stuffing and baked beans so I feel like I am experiencing everything Thanksgiving has to offer.  It truly is heart-warming since I am so far away from my own family each year.  While I love my in-laws dearly, it gets harder each year to be separated from my family on a day in which the entire premise is to be with a celebrate loved ones.  But I do have an infinite amount to be thankful for.  I hope you all take a few moments tomorrow to forget about blogging, Black Friday and wish-lists to remember what is truly important in your life. 
Ok, on to the fun stuff.  Confession time - I have had this faux-leather peplum top hanging in my closet for at least 2 months now and have yet to wear it.  It was random $15 find at TJ Maxx one day, and I have been waiting for just the right time to wear it and I have completely forgotten about it.  I kept telling myself once I found the perfect necklace I would dust it off and share it with the world.  Enter this marbled beauty from Happy Wrist .  I loved how the thick acrylic chain paired with the edgy faux-leather, and the snakeskin clutch was just a perfect match. 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Thanks for reading.  Linkups below!

  3. I think I love everything about this outfit! I can't believe you didn't wear this top any sooner, I would've ripped the tags off as soon as I got home and wore it forever :) you're MIL is so sweet, I am glad you were able to spend it with loved ones. Stopped by via the Three-fer Thursday link up. Have a great weekend!
