Welcome to another edition of Links + Loves! Let’s jump right in…

Thanksgiving is upon us and however you choose to celebrate this year, we hope you still end it with a full belly, a thankful heart…and probably a full cart if you’re anything like us. {photo from How to Throw a Boho Meets Rustic Friendsgiving}

If you love a good floral dress and weddings in the woods, just want to go ahead and direct your attention here.

We’ve had some inquiries re: what the heck to wear if you’re getting married in the snow. Turns out, there’s a cozy new trend and it’s here just in time for winter weddings!

We also added some fun new gift guides this week. Here’s one for kiddos and here’s one to support small businesses!

And HERE are a few things our editors are loving lately:


From Jen:

Just discovered this new probiotic yogurt (from a woman-owned company!) and it’s my new fave afternoon snack! The Strawberry Rose and Peach Cashew Butter are my fave flavors!

Christmas decor is in full swing at my house. I love adding a few bottle brush trees each year and World Market has a great selection in the prettiest green colors – plus 20% off this weekend!

Bought these PJs (in grey stripe) for the winter and they are so cozy!! Pair with this top.

Loved architect Chet Callahan’s house tour.

From Katie:

If you need a beauty gift set for someone this Christmas (or honestly, yourself) Sephora’s $25 and under section is incredible! Might pop into a store this weekend and snag a few.

We bought our first faux tree this year and I couldn’t be happier with the deal on it! It’s this 7-foot Blue Spruce.

Are you watching season 4 of The Crown? As if I couldn’t love Princess Diana anymore…turns out I can!

From Brittany:

I’ll be making this perfect side dish for Thanksgiving next week. And then I’ll lick the plate when it’s all gone.

I ordered this printable to add some a little vintage whimsy to our Christmas decor this year. I printed it at home and it looks so good!

Speaking of holiday decor, this $5 garland is 9 ft long and surprisingly great! I bought two and doubled it up for a fuller look then added a string of lights. (AND it’s BOGO 50% off wreaths + garlands until tomorrow!)

From Danielle:

My husband caved, and we got a pink Christmas tree. I caved and bought these hippo ornaments for it!

I just added these to my cart. Faux-shearling is arguably my favorite texture for winter!

Greenlights – by Matthew McConaughey is supposed to be a really good book! I’m ordering a copy for my man.

One of my favorite F1 drivers, Daniel Ricciardo, was on the Armchair Expert podcast and I really enjoyed it! Give it a listen if you’re into racing…or fun.

Thinking of doing something a little different this Thanksgiving for ‘pie.’ Of course, it’s coming from Half Baked Harvest — my favorite!

From Jessi:

Okay, so I finally caved and bought a shacket. It’s a little different than the traditional plaid print, so I’m excited because it’ll go with anything!

I’m really loving dried fruit for my Christmas decor this year. I just snagged this cute and minimalist front door wreath that features dried oranges, apples, and cinnamon!

I’ve got to sing the praises of this little guy. I was shocked by how much dirt and grime it removed from my carpets!!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at GWS!
