Good morning, everyone!
We woke up to a bit of a dreary morning here in Raleigh. I don’t mind a bit of rain but the temperature is supposed to hit 78 degrees today. If it is going to rain, I prefer that it at least be cold outside. It’s insanity. We enter into December tomorrow and we are still fighting humidity.
There hasn’t been too much going on this week. I have primarily been focusing on taking down fall and Thanksgiving decorations, although my pumpkin-obsessed little one keeps unpacking them as soon as items were placed in a storage container. Finally, David and I realized that the task needed to be completed while Ryan napped…although I did just notice that there is somehow still one pumpkin floating around.
This Saturday is Ryan’s second birthday as well as his birthday party. We are having small party with our families here at our house so I am beginning to organize those decorations. Ryan chose Curious George as his theme so we are doing a Curious Ryan party. If you follow us on InstaStories or Snapchat (baublesbackdrop) you may have seen some of the decorations. Thanks goodness for Etsy. While I love craft projects and creating, hosting Thanksgiving and working on Christmas shopping makes time a bit too scarce for me to handle everything so I am thankful for so many talented Etsy shop owners. I’ll share the party pictures over the next couple of weeks.
As for what I have been wearing while out and about running party errands, my go-to piece has been a moto jacket. While I have owned a couple of moto vests over the years, I had yet to find the perfect moto jacket…until a couple of months ago. This jacket is pretty darn close to perfection. One of the issues I have had in the past while trying on this style of jacket is tightness in the arms. They made me feel confined not to mention the fact that there was no way I could have fit a sweater underneath. This particular jacket offers ample room for layering. Also, in the past, faux leather jackets that I found always seemed to be cropped. I am 5’10 with a long torso so I can assure you that a cropped jacket is a no-go for this girl. This jacket sits perfectly on the hips. Honestly, I can’t sing enough praises for this jacket!

I have linked several other faux leather jacket options (at varying price points) as well!
