Our Engagement Photos + Camera Giveaway!

on me: similar off-shoulder sweater // Sole Society scarf
Paige denim // Stuart Weitzman boots, similar but less expensive HERE
on Chris: gray henley // Paige denim

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!! Chris and I worked with photographer Bethany Small for our engagement photos and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out (Bethany, we can't wait to see you in June!!). We wanted the whole thing to be pretty casual and candid - Chris kept being really goofy during the shoot and making me laugh - I think some of the candid shots of us laughing are my favorite, because that's how we are in real life. On Thanksgiving and every other day of the year, I'm so thankful for this man in my life. I can't wait to marry you, Chris!!!

I hope every one of you has the BEST Thanksgiving Day, eats lots of Turkey and pumpkin pie, and really takes the chance to reflect on everything we have to be thankful for this year.

Sequin Skirt + T3 Curling Wand Giveaway!

long sleeve turtleneck (closet staple!) // sequin skirt (less than $50) // 
Jimmy Choo heels, similar but less expensive HERE // 
Chanel mini flap bag, similar but less expensive HERE  // black tights //
large gold hoops // MAC lipstick in "Lady Danger"

Good morning, everyone!! I am seriously in love with this holiday outfit... is there anything better than gold sequins!? My sequin skirt fits true-to-size and is less than $50. I paired it with all black for this look, but I plan to re-wear it a couple of times this season with an oversized sweater! It would actually be the perfect skirt to wear to Thanksgiving dinner because of the elastic waistband ;) I plan on eating my body weight in mac'n'cheese and sweet potato casserole tomorrow and I'm so pumped about it!

Our Thanksgiving Tablescape + HOME Giveaway!!

Good morning, everyone! I wanted to share a little peek into our dining room today - this post was photographed last week so we have since changed the paint color and taken down the curtains (and it looks sooo much better lol) but I wanted to share with you guys anyways! I went ahead and prepared the table settings ahead of time this year because both mine and Chris's families will be joining us for Thanksgiving. (We are actually adding two more place settings to the table when everyone gets to town!) One question I wanted to answer quickly is where our dining room rug is from (you guys keep emailing/DMing me about it!) - it's Safavieh but I purchased it HERE - mine is the silver/ivory color. Nice rugs can sometimes be thousands of dollars so I think this one is pretty reasonably priced, especially for how beautiful it is. It's GORGEOUS in person. :)

On to the table! I am LOVING mercury glass right now so I knew I wanted that to be the theme of the table, with lots and lots of Mercury glass candle holders. I found a silver and white table runner and matching napkins, and they look so good paired with these antique silver chargers and the white dinner and salad plates. The table still looked a little plain, so the finishing touch was this silver dollar Eucalyptus garland to add some greenery. I arranged the candlesticks around the garland so that it weaves in and out of the candles. I even added a few tea lights for a more romantic feel. I love how it turned out!!

If anyone needs a refresher on how to set a formal table, I found this really good diagram on Pinterest!

Now on to the fun stuff :) Thank you guys for all of your great ideas on Twitter yesterday! You guys are so appreciative and sweet it makes me want to cry when I read some of your tweets!! I have all the giveaways planned out this week thanks to you guys. Yesterday's winner of the $250 Nordstrom gift card is (drumroll please) Elise Bingaman (@elisybing). Elise please email me so I can send you your gift card!

Since today's post is centered around the home, I wanted today's giveaway to have a similar theme :)

One lucky reader will receive:
- a $100 Pottery Barn gift card
my favorite home organization book
- a Barefoot Dreams robe (my favorite robe of all time!! See what mine looks like in this blog post)
- a Voluspa mini candle set (also my favorite candles ever!!)

And all you have to do to enter is:
1. Follow me on Pinterest
2. Re-pin 3 of my outfits
3. Leave a comment on the blog post with a link to your Pinterest board so I can verify! :)

and that's it! Check back tomorrow for the winner of the giveaway AND another giveaway!!

The Perfect Party Dress + Giveaway!

black tights // Jimmy Choo heels, similar but less expensive HERE // 
 MAC lipstick in "Lady Danger"

I am alllll about some holiday parties, and even more about holiday party dresses! This black lace fit and flare dress from Nordstrom is a dream come true - it's both figure-flattering and slimming, and the lace detailing on the dress is beyond gorgeous. To dress this up even more I would add a faux fur coat or faux fur stole - and don't forget a red lip color! (By the way, if you're looking for the perfect red lipstick for the holiday season, try MAC lipstick in "Lady Danger" - it's my new favorite). Nordstrom has a TON of great party dresses, so I picked out a bunch of my favorites and linked them in the widget below.

Since this week is the week of Thanksgiving, I thought it would be really fun to show you guys just how thankful I am for all of you!! Each day on the blog this week I'll be giving away some of my favorite items (so check back every day for a chance to win something new!). Today I'm giving away a $250 gift card to Nordstrom.... All you have to do to enter is:

1. Follow me on my Twitter page (@cmcoving)
2. Tweet at me telling me what you think I should give away next :)

The winner will be announced tomorrow and a new giveaway will be announced so be sure to check back!
