    Brisk days call for lots of layers, cozy styles, and the perfect accessories to keep you toasty! While you engage in your favorite fall-to-winter activities like apple picking, cooking up a Friendsgiving feast, or shopping for holiday gifts, the perfect outfit can make all your events even more special! Whether you're making an entrance in a sparkling party dress or having a cozy night in, you can always find inspiration from other Ruchettes. Here are the charming outfits a few of our favorite Ruchettes wore this week! 

    In this understated yet chic outfit, Signe of Signeroo looks absolutely darling! We love how she plays with proportions with her high waisted jeans and long printed cardigan. Wintery hues like navy blue and deep mustard yellow perfectly complement the other neutral tones in her ensemble, and her outfit leaves us inspired. cozy

    Rebecca of The Clothes Horse looks perfectly retro in this sweater dress adorned with wintery tones and a geometric print. Her sweet side braid, beret and B.A.I.T Footwear oxford style pumps keep this ensemble perfect vintage-inspired. We're swooning!

    In an outfit that perfectly balances femininity with edge, Adri Lately stuns by pairing a printed drop waist dress with a moto jacket. We think this pairing is the perfect way to bring even the most summery dress into the cooler months. On extra chilly days, we would add tall socks and boots for a cozy touch.

    If this is the first time you're hosting Thanksgiving, or you're planning on having a few friends over for an intimate dinner, a traditional place setting adds a classy touch to your celebration. We still can't believe that the holidays are just around the corner (where does the time go?!), but nevertheless, we are preparing for a busy season of wining and dining! In addition to any season decor you place at your table, we've illustrated a handy guide for a simple, yet proper place setting that even your mother-in-law will approve of!

    We know that between finding the perfect gift and making sure your guests are enjoy themselves, it can be a challenge to get a little "me" time. Once you've set your table, don't forget to slip into a sparkling party dress, or a floor-grazing maxi dress to make your evening of hosting even more special!

    While Thanksgiving is traditionally spent with family, we certainly can't forget about the friends we hold near and dear! Thanksgiving is all about feasting and reflecting on what you're thankful for, and Friendsgiving is the perfect way to share all the best parts of this glorious day with your friends! Hosting a Friendsiving shindig is simple, and it's truly a great way to share a few laughs and indulge on a feast if you don't have the means to make it home for the holidays. Here are a few steps to get your Friendsgiving celebration started! 

    friendsgiving-feast

    Invite Guests: Choose a date and send your guests an invite. You can opt to keep it casual with an online event invite, or go the extra step with mailed invitations. Whether you're keeping it close knit or going all out, try not to stress about accommodating everyone's schedules. The holidays are a busy time, and no matter how hard you try, the date you pick may fall on a day where a friend is out of town or has a previous engagement. Do your best to choose a date that works for the majority of your guests and try not to stress if everyone is not able to attend! 

    Friensgiving Menu: When it comes to the menu, you have to ask yourself one question: Exactly how much do I want to cook? It's perfectly acceptable to organize a potluck-style celebration where you can take on main dishes that require a little extra attention and time in the kitchen, like the turkey and gravy. In your invite, you can divvy up food responsibilities by allowing your guests to respond what they'll be bringing when they RSVP. If this is the case, make sure to include foods that adhere to guests' diet restrictions. This could be anything from a vegan pumpkin pie to gluten-free stuffing! If you're ready to cook your very own Thanksgiving feast, you can also craft your own dishes and request your guests bring hors d'oeuvres and desserts. 

    thanksgiving-with-friends

    Delightful Libations: The key to choosing the perfect libation to accompany your Friendsgiving feast is knowing your guests. If your friend group is always exploring new breweries and they discuss craft beer like it's a science, provide a selection of delicious brews in lieu of wine. You can always craft a seasonal sangria and keep it in a pitcher for easy serving.

    Entertainment: While you treasure the time you spend together, you still want to keep your guests entertained, especially if there are a few guests that don't know each other very well! Keep the mood light with a casual game or two. Music is also an essential, and even if you don't want to stick to the traditional sounds of the holidays, you can still curate your own playlist, or have a few vinyl records on hand to play! 

    friendsgiving-drinks

    Leftovers: Instead of worrying about lending out your plastic containers, we love the idea of buying simple paper take-out boxes so your guests can pick and choose what leftovers they'll be taking home with them. This way, you can easily write names on them so your vegetarian best friend doesn't end up taking your college roommate's turkey and gravy home! 

    Lastly...Enjoy! Don't fret if the mashed potatoes aren't quite mashed enough or if you don't have enough desserts to go around - the most important thing is to sit back, relax, and enjoy time with your friends! It is called Friendsgiving, after all!

    Each passing day grows a little more chilly, and we are loving embracing lots of layers and bundling up! With a chill in the air comes our favorite cozy sweaters, tights, boots, and hats, and don't forget essentials like printed coats and long cardigans! Of course, one of our favorite cool-weather accessories is a steaming cup of hot cocoa (with extra marshmallows, of course!). As the days grow colder, we love seeing Ruchettes grow more creative with styling and layering. See a few of our favorite outfits from a few gorgeous Ruchettes this week! 

    Looking like a chilly weather beauty, Amber of Barefoot Blonde shines in our Evening Glow Metallic Sweater! She keeps her ensemble neutral and cozy with black skinny jeans and a wide brim hat. Her bright blue purse is perfect for adding a sunny touch to this winter outfit! amber-barefoot-blonde

    A vintage-inspired print can brighten up and dreary day, and Lacy of Lacy Rose XO adds a colorful pop to the season with our Esme Printed Dress. We firmly believe that florals are perfectly acceptable all year round, and we love how she keeps warm by pairing this printed dress with tights and boots. lacey-rose-xo

    The Dainty Darling's Courtney looks ready for a brisk day in our Varsity Club Plaid Jacket. Plaid is certainly a must-have for fall, and we adore her perfectly preppy attire! We can't get enough of this outfit featuring our favorite fall hues like burgundy, forest green, and chocolate brown. the-dainty-darling

    There is only one thing we love more than our winter lookbook, Away We Go, and that is this dreamy illustration by Shy Davis of Eternal Tresor! Shy fell in love with Away We Go, and used the images of glamorous outfits, sparkling accessories, and cute dresses as inspiration for this darling drawing of a Ruchette outfit! We adore how Shy captured the intricate details of our Lady in Waiting Red Coat and floral lace of our Evening With You Clutch. Even our Rita Plaid Dress is replicated in perfect detail. We're using this fashion illustration as inspiration for all of our holiday attire!
