This beautiful vintage bracelet was given to me over Thanksgiving break by my grandmother. She used to wear it to college parties and sorority events, and naturally, I fell in love with it at first sight.

Santa's elves are busily working the toy factory. On the other hand, I am sipping peppermint tea and frantically shopping at a very different kind of factory...
J Crew Factory to be specific.
With only nine days left until December 25th, the time to finish last minute gift shopping is drawing upon us.
And to make the rush a tad easier, J Crew factory is ALL 50%, (with an extra 10% and free shipping using code 12DAYS)!
Here are some of my favorite picks from the sale, and also some samples of what I already ordered last week!
May the days leading up to Christmas be filled with hot chocolate, good company, and maybe a little mistletoe.

: glad that something has happened or not happened, that something or someone exists, etc.
At this moment on December 2nd, I am thankful for three certain things:
1. That I am blessed with such a fun and loving family. There is never a dull moment at the Long house. EVER
2. Black watch plaid (my favorite thing to wear at the moment)
3. The fact that I ran into one of my favorite bloggers, the darling Rachel Timmerman of A Preppy State of Mind. We both happened to be in Colonial Williamsburg at the same time (I knew this because of instagram), and I was simply dying to run into her! I am a firm believer that God makes things happen for a reason, and he happened to put us both on Duke of Gloster St. at the same minute. It was so delightful to meet her, along with her mom and adorable puppy Jaycee. Talk about a one in a million chance!
On the topic of my favorite tartan, I recently made a purchase in a place I never shop: the men's department. Let's just say it has quickly become one of my favorite pieces! My Black Watch plaid flannel (see bottom left) goes perfectly with just about anything, it has made appearances with leggings and riding boots, skinny cords and flats, and will soon go over dresses for a little extra warmth.
Here are some of my other favorite fall pieces. At least one of them makes an appearance in my outfit on an almost daily basis!
These items all have one thing in common: they are fabulously versatile, comfortable, and darling.
(Just kidding, 3 things!)
Stay tuned for more styling featuring my favorite tartan.
Have a beautiful day, and Happy Cyber Monday shopping!
