Giving Thanks


Happy Thanksgiving!! This year I am grateful to be home for Thanksgiving, since last year I spent the holiday in London. As much as I want to go back, I have to say the British turkey feast was definitely not the same. Aside from being way too excited to indulge in turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and more, I am truly thankful for my family and friends for supporting me through this exciting time in my life. As I enjoy my last year of college and start a new career opportunity, I couldn't be more grateful for all the support!

And, of course, thank YOU for reading and supporting All Dressed Up, Everywhere To Go! I love reading your comments and emails, and I'm excited to continue posting.

Now, let's start feasting! Comment below with what you're thankful for!

Heathered Fleece Featuring Charles River Apparel

Photography by Stephanie Brown

This outfit post is a bit artsier than usual, but my friend Stephanie is taking a photography class and is always in need of models! We wandered around the Fens and found this beautiful view of the Pru. I always forget about the pretty parks around Boston other than the Commons. The Fens has lots of little ponds and streams and lots of geese (watch out for the bird poop…). 

Other than these fabulous photos, I want to talk about the heathered fleece I'm wearing from Charles River Apparel. This fleece is the comfiest. I wear it while studying, heading to the gym or when I just want to feel cozy. The jacket also has a monogram on the sleeve, similar to the one in my New Englander rain coat post, which adds a personal touch. Holiday gift idea? I think so!

Charles River Apparel is sold on Amazon, as well as through numerous retailers. For a complete list of retailers near you, fill out this form for details. You can also purchase monogrammed jackets like mine on Etsy!

Do you have a favorite fleece to keep you warm and cozy this season?
Thanks for reading!

Handbags 101 Courtesy of Rue La La

Recently Rue La La posted a style guide for handbags on their blog to help you determine which style bag is best for you and your lifestyle. Although handbag trends come and go, the clutch, the tote, the pochette, the hobo and the satchel are here to stay. Of these styles, I'd say my favorite would have to be the tote. As much as I love a statement clutch, a tote lets me carry everything I could possibly need for the day when I go to class or work.
Totes are perfect carry-all bags that can be used for any and all occasions from the beach to the office. In my tote, I carry my laptop, planner, laptop and iPhone chargers, pens, chapstick, lip gloss, hair ties, Band-aids, gum, hand sanitizer and all the essentials. Usually to organize my tote I use a smaller compartmental bag (read blog post here) to keep smaller items from floating around. When transitioning from a large tote to a small clutch, I only bring along my iPhone, ID, credit card, cash and lip gloss. A small, leather credit card holder keeps your valuables in one place and can fit in a small clutch. 


Not only does Rue La La's style guide for handbags help you pick the best style bag for you, but it also gives you a full history of handbag styles dating back to the 16th century (yes, the cross-body dates back that far), designer hand bag signatures that teach you how to tell if a designer bag is authentic, and care tips for your handbags. I feel more informed about handbag styles than ever after reading Rue La La's post. Be sure to read up on your favorite hand bag!

Which style handbag is your favorite?!
