Hey there! Happy Monday! Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? That’s so insane to me! For the first time since I’ve been here in London, I am a little sad I won’t be waking up to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade while making Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls. Over the weekend, though, Whitney and I went to our friend’s house for a Friendsgiving get together! It was so fun to celebrate our American holiday here in London with people from all over the world, like Dubai, Italy, Switzerland, and England!

I was going to share this look after Thanksgiving because it’s more holiday-esque but, decided to share it now because a lot of the items I’m wearing are REALLY good pieces to have in your winter wardrobe. This coat is my absolute favorite! Y’all will be seeing me wear it a couple other upcoming posts but I encourage you snag it now because it’s currently 30% off with code FESTIVE! Don’t wait, though! Take advantage of these prices now! This coat is super warm and very well made. It comes in a wide variety of sizes making it easy for all of us to get one that fits us perfectly. Outerwear is such a nightmare to have altered, so J.Crew is always my go-to! Germany was colder than I ever expected so I doubled up on wool & cashmere sweaters. I wore this lightweight cashmere turtleneck in the silver gray color, and this wool blend crew neck sweater in gray. They are both currently 30% off with code FESTIVE, as well, along with the plaid scarf I’m wearing!

The castle behind me is called Eltz Castle, a medieval castle built in the 12th century, that was a short hour and a half drive outside of Cologne! Unfortunately, tours weren’t available because it’s closed this time of year – I’m assuming due to the cold temperatures and unexpected weather conditions. Based on the drive, it would be hard to get to with the snow on the ground. There were a lot of winding roads and sharp turns. Still, we were happy we ventured out to see it! It’s like something you see in a Disney movie. I really want to go to the castle in Germany that Cinderella’s castle was based on. It looks absolutely GORGEOUS! Maybe next Fall … 🙂

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today, lovelies! Hope y’all are excited about the upcoming sales! Last year, some big ones started on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving so be sure to stop by here first thing in the morning. I’ll have a roundup for ya!

Here are a few deals already underway … some Black Friday warm ups, if you will! Enjoy!

    I absolutely love that coat. I’m trying to contain myself on all these precious pieces for fall. I think visiting the castles would be my favorite part of living there for sure.

    Love the scarf and castle! Heading to Neuschwanstein Castle next summer. I’ve heard that the Smaller one nearby is better as far as in terms of completion but the splendor of nBuschwanstein is better!

    Hello! I am here clearly digging in the archives for winter outfits 🙂

    Can you recall if this coat was true to size?

      Hi there! The retailer that the coat is from has changed their sizing a bit. I believe I got 000 Petite but they no longer have that as an option. Their brand mostly runs big, if that helps!
