Happy Thanksgiving Friends!

I hope you are enjoying time with family and friends and eating lots of good food! This is such a great holiday because it not only brings people together but is a time to reflect on all the things for which we are thankful.

I am very thankful for so many blessings in my life and thankful for each of you that take the time to read and comment on my blog! Palmetto Couture has been a blast to create, and I can’t wait to see where I can take it.

Today I am taking it easy with my parents, doing some online shopping (I love some deals!) and taking a great, big nap!

I will also get a jump-start on writing out my Christmas cards and pulling some Christmas decorations out of the attic if I’m feeling energetic! What will you be doing today?

I hope you are able to enjoy your day and remember to be thankful for everything not only today but everyday. And again, thank you so much for supporting Palmetto Couture!

“That my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord, my God, I will give thanks to you forever.” Psalms 30: 12

As the temperature gets cooler, we often find ourselves choosing warmth over style. I am guilty of this myself, but when I find a stylish piece of fall and winter gear that also keeps me warm, I don’t hesitate in making a purchase!

This faux fur and chunky knit wrap is going to be put on repeat the next few months! It is so warm and cozy, and I bet you won’t believe I bought it at Target! It is great quality for the price tag of about $40!

Wraps and ponchos are pieces that are easily incorporated into your closet because you can pair them with basics that you already own. Putting a fun printed wrap over a turtleneck or long sleeve shirt gives a nice layered look that will seem like you put much more effort into planning your outfit than you really did! You can always belt your wrap to accentuate your waist and have a more polished look too!

Here are a few other wraps and ponchos that I love: French Connection / Chip & Pepper / Merona

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and that means spending time with family and friends and eating a lot of good food!

Every family has their own traditions regarding the Thanksgiving day menu, but if you are looking for a delicious and festive cocktail to share at your feast, I have just the recipe for you!

You may have seen a similar recipe circling around Pinterest the past few months much like I have. I decided to do a trial run with my best friend, Laura, and her husband, Ryan, to see if it would pass the taste test. And ya’ll, this is dangerously good!

I present to you…Caramel Apple Sangria!

It is a fairly simple drink to make but honestly, it appears and tastes like a lot more went into making it! We added a special touch by rimming the glass with brown sugar and it not only looked pretty, but it added more flavor to the sangria with each sip!

Below is the recipe we used, but if you are wanting a larger quantity I would simply double the ingredients:

Caramel Apple Sangria

750ml bottle of Pinot Grigio (or white wine of your choosing)
1 cup of Caramel Flavored Vodka
2 cups of Apple Cider
1-2 Apples
Brown Sugar (for rim decoration)

Pour all liquids into a large pitcher and stir. Cut apples into small pieces and add to the pitcher. To decorate the rim of your wine glasses: dip the top of the wine glass into a little apple cider and then place lip of the glass into a shallow plate of brown sugar to coat the rim.

Then pour your sangria and enjoy!

Try it and let me know what you think! Happy Thanksgiving!
