Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from the Musings Family! Below is my recipe for cranberry-apple sauce with cinnamon if you need an y last minute side dishes for your holiday meal:

4 cups of cranberries
1 large apple
1 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon and sugar

Boil water, add cranberries. When cranberries burst, remove from heat and let cool (do not drain). Pierce then bake apple at 300 degrees for about 15 minutes, let cool. Peel, then and mash the contents of the apple, stir in to cranberry mix and let cool.

My Look Inspired by Bonobos

The new patterns and colors of Bonobos' mens suit collection got my attention. As I've said before, I'm not about Charlotte and Trey SATC mathcy-matchy, but I am all for a subtle compliment to my hubby's attire. I also like a look that can go from day to evening, as many of our days start in the office and end with cocktails alongside the boss or new a client. When I was asked to style myself as inspired by some of the new suit collections, I thought about the holidays and their festive shimmer.

For him: I love the grey, silver tones of this suit with a crisp, classic white button down for this time of year. This can go from a day full of meetings and an appearance in court, to dinner at our favorite steakhouse.

For me: The play of champagne tones against the silver and grey of his look creates a little depth and captures the best of the holiday season. I would wear this to work, and then switch out my tote and shoes for a clutch and a striped metallic pump to make it night perfection.

One Jacket Two Ways (II)

My new favorite piece for fall: Banana Republic's tweed sweater blazer. I scored this early in the season with a 40% off coupon and have been loving it ever since.

the perfect pout

the perfect pout

I am perpetually searching for the perfect beauty products. Girl Meets Glam turned me on to Chanel's Rouge Double Intensite liquid lipstick, and I have since bought 5 shades. My perfect evening color is Deep Rose, while my office look is Light Rose. When I say I put it on at 7am, and only reapply the top gloss 3-4 times throughout the day, I am not kidding. I still need remover to take it off at 8pm. And it doesn't transfer, doesn't get on teeth, and doesn't budge when smooching my toddler. The all around perfect product! at $35, its really more than worth the price tag.

Vests are a fall staple. As are pumpkins, mums, and the daily struggle to get my 3 year old to wear a jacket.
