[su_column size=”3/4″]Keeping things modest for some family parties in a mid-length leather skirt and a sweater. This sweater is the softest thing I own. I’ll admit, I’ve worn it almost every day this week. I think this outfit is perfect for those holiday family parties. Grandma will have nothing to complain about.

This is where I go when I want to escape the city and catch some incredible views. There’s something about the mountains that has always brought me peace. Hiking through this beautiful landscape with my pup is my idea of an #EverNaturalEscape. These new waterproof EMU Australia Sandy Bay Hi boots can tough out rain, snow, and of course dirt and are perfect for such an occasion.

I’m partnering with EMU Australia to bring awareness to their #EverNaturalEscape competition where you could win a trip for two to Australia! In order to enter, you have to upload an original image of your favorite outdoor getaway to instagram or twitter with the hashtag #EverNaturalEscape and follow/tag @EMUAustralia in your caption! The contest is open through November 15th. You can visit www.emuaustralia.com/evernaturalescape for more details.

Keeping things simple as always. I love a pointed toe for fall. We’re in that strange transitional phase, but these booties are perfect for really anything. For this post, I’ve teamed up with Marc Fisher LTD to bring awareness to their #MAKEYOURMARC program which celebrates women and the amazing work that they do. Basically every time you use the hashtag #MAKEYOURMARC on Twitter or Instagram, $1 will be donated to Karlie Kloss’ charity, Kode with Karlie. I’m sure you guys have heard of it! Additionally, for every purchase on select styles (including these booties) on marcfisherfootwear.com, $20 will be donated to Kode with Karlie.

 

Go to marcfisherfootwear.com/makeyourmarc to nominate yourself or someone that inspires you to be awarded a grant to support their efforts.[/su_column]

Switching Gears

     For those of you who are judging me for wearing
open-toed shoes in winter, just shhhhh. :P
I never do the dress over pants thing so I thought
that a long sweater would be a happy medium.
Its finally getting “cold” outside here but now I have
to switch gears because I leave in one day for
New Zealand, which is currently in summer! This
will be my first time there and I’m so excited. If
you guys have any recommendations for things
around Auckland, Christchurch, and Queenstown,
let me know! We will be hopping around!
Make sure to follow me on instagram (@bethanystruble)
to stay updated on my travels!
Love you all.

Thanksgiving Party Outfits

     With “friendsgiving” trending and everyone throwing
multiple holiday parties, I figured it would help if I put
together a blog post of things to wear to Friendsgiving,
Thanksgiving, and everything in between.
I try to stay comfortable and modest for Thanksgiving
to keep Grandma from commenting on cleavage and
instead have her comment on how much of a “young
lady” you are. But maybe your grandparents are not as
vocal as mine..  Still, don’t wear your dress too tight
because you’ll regret not wearing a loose top after that
third helping of pie.

Beaded top: Joie and here
Pants: AG jeans
Fringe Bag: Malibucali
Boots: Shoemint

Dress: Similar

Chill In The Air

     I wasn’t expecting the cold to be so harsh in Michigan.
     I had to layer up what sweaters I brought just to stand
     outside for a minute. You can see me clutching my coffee
     like it’s my lifeline. I’m also in desperate need of another
     haircut. My hair grows way too fast to keep it shoulder
     length. Anyway, hope you like the photos. Michigan is
     one of my happy places and I never spend too much of
     my time blogging when I’m there. It’s sort of my place to
     disconnect and enjoy the nature that I don’t get to see
     in Los Angeles.
     Love you all.

Where the Wind Blows

     I’ve had dresses tailored, but nothing made specifically for me
     until I created this dress on Piol. It was such a fun process and
     super customizable. I went with a simple wrap dress, but there
     are tons of patterns and different fabrics. Check out Piol and
     have a go at designing your own dress, starting with a color
     palate that perfectly matches your eyes, skin, and hair color.
     Love you all!

 

In The Family

     Meet my sister Hannah. She’s one of my three younger
     sisters. Having younger sisters has always been my biggest
     source of inspiration to make myself a better role model for
     them. They always keep me in check in return. Hannah is a
     talented and driven girl and I’m always inspired by her resilience
     and spirit. She was actually one of my first photographers when
     Snakes Nest first started. Hannah has always been there for me
     and for that, I’m so thankful.
     I’m excited to share that Calypso St. Barth is having a Friends
     and Family discount going on now. Use the code FRIENDS14
