Style Scouting: Vol. 70

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are getting to enjoy the last day of the holiday weekend.

My daughter Mandy did an excellent job hosting for the the first time. We have yummy leftovers to enjoy for another meal or two.

I also got to see my younger sister and brother-in-law whom I haven’t seen for 3 years. We just hung out and enjoyed just being together again.
