The Holidays are Almost Here!

It's rather hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here! I feel like this year has absolutely flown by! Since everyone is starting to get into the holiday spirit, I though I would share a few Thanksgiving ideas this week, along with, a CUTE outfit idea!
Who doesn't look forward to the wonderful meal that is always promised by this holiday? Besides getting to see lots of family we don't see very often, the meal is my favorite part!
I was on Pinterest a few days ago and found a super easy idea for little Thanksgiving cookies! You just take a Keebler fudge stripe cookie, turn it upside down, put a little icing in the middle, and stick a mini-Reese's cup on top! Add an orange chiclet and you have an easy, tasty Pilgrim hat dessert! 
Now, I don't know about anyone else, but when I am planning my Thanksgiving outfit, there are 2 requirements: a. Cute and Stylish  b. Expandable! We all know everyone usually ends up eating a little too much and I hate being uncomfortable in my own clothes! So, you can still look super fashionable while having a little room to fit in all of your Thanksgiving dinner favorites! Below is an entire outfit put together that is comfy, yet still stylish! It would be easy to re-create this outfit with pieces you already have since it is based on a neutral color palette! 
All of the girls at McAuley's are gearing up for the holidays and ready to help you with all of your shopping needs! So, if you need a special outfit for any occasion, come see us, or shop with us on the web at  !

This Season's Most Coveted Coats!

No one wants to be left with a boring coat for the winter. Big collars and wide arms are just a couple of the details we have seen popping up in the fashion world lately. Take for instance this beautiful, Aryn K. cream colored coat. It has a just-above-the-knee length with a high collar, giving you a long-lean line.

This next style of coat always has been, and probably always will be,  popular because of its classic styling. Make a statement and jazz it up a little bit by putting on this red double-breasted coat with pockets!
Ponchos really seem to be all the rage this season! For those of you who love your little black coats but want to add a little more style, this black poncho with a precious tie-front bow gives it a fun girly-feel!

Easy Outfit Add-Ons

Are you tired of your same old, boring outfits? Does your wardrobe lack fun, colorful pieces? Don't think you have to go out and buy expensive new clothes, just add-on some fun things here and there to give your outfits a little extra flair!
Notice how boring the plain black turtleneck below would have been had she not added this cute scarf that can be seen here:

Another really easy way to add some edgy flair to your outfit is through patterned tights! Ones like those shown below look super cute with many different boot styles, skirts, and dresses! Dress them up or down... the choice is yours!! 

My personal favorite way to make an outfit really pop is through fun jewelry! There are endless ways of accessorizing with necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings! These gold chandelier earrings are basic enough to pair with virtually any color or style, but still have that pretty flair you are looking for in earrings!
