Favorite Things | Stocking Stuffers

It's almost that time of year! Yes, I know Thanksgiving hasn't come and gone, but the early bird gets the worm (and the sales)! I've listed some of my favorite stocking stuffers below, some of which I have and love. You can't go wrong with any of these for your lady, friend, or sister!

Saturday Casual Comfort


This fluffy cardigan came with my cable knit sweater with the neat elbow patches. Since I received it in the mail I have not gone a single night without wearing it. It's extremely soft and warm and is just what I need while I watch TV or read before bed. It's also perfect to throw on during a cold front. 
Some of these items are Etsy finds that would be great gifts for friends and family! Check them out here:

Not Your School Girl Skirt


Unless you're new here, you know I have a deep love for plaid. It's what Fall is made of in my mind, and the holidays too. My sister sent me a pic of this skirt while she was shopping, and to be fair I didn't think it was anything too special. And then I saw it for myself at J.Crew Factory. I had clearly made a rash decision before as it simply lovely! Wouldn't you agree?

Grandma's Turkey Stuffing

One of the biggest things I look forward to about Thanksgiving is my grandma's stuffing. It's the best stuffing I've ever had, and I've been practicing her "recipe." My grandma is the one who taught me how to cook most things, and we share the tendency to not use actual recipes. I suppose it runs in the family. She did give me her recipe, mind you there's very little measuring included. 

The first part of making the stuffing is baking corn bread.  

Once the cornbread is made, you are ready to start the remainder of the stuffing. 

Once you've sufficiently dirtied your hands with the stuffing goodness, you're ready to start loading it into the turkey. My grandma told me to "stuff it to the brim!" Don't leave any nook or cranny unstuffed. My favorite thing about stuffing is that it absorbs the turkey flavoring while it cooks, so don't miss any spaces!

Now your turkey is full of tasty stuffing, wrap it tightly in heavy duty tin foil. Grandma says this keeps all the flavors in tight and helps them meld together better than loose or open wrapping. Once the turkey has cooked the allotted time, open the foil and allow it to brown for 10-15 minutes.

All you need now is the sides to complete your Thanksgiving Supper! I'd love to hear how yours turns out if you try the recipe!

Cable Knit Workwear


As the temperatures dropped at the end of last week, I scrambled to find all of my warm winter sweaters. Luckily this sweater had just arrived at my doorstep a few days before! I am in love with the elbow patches and the unique cable knit pattern. Paired with a pair of wool pants it's perfect for a day in the office!

If you can't find it...

Have you ever gotten an idea of something you need in your wardrobe but can't find it anywhere? Well that happened to me a few weeks ago. I was on a serious hunt for a big, chunky cream cowl neck scarf that wouldn't cost a fortune. I wanted it to look like the one Claire wore on the show Outlander

So I decided I would buy the yarn and knit it myself. It only took a few days (bits of time throughout) and voila! I have a scarf! It's incredibly warm and chunky as ever. I'm not going to lie, I was rather surprised at how it turned out being my first knitting project. 

Oh, and I highly recommend you try this show out. It has a great story line and is almost as good as Game of Thrones!
