Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

1. What if I overcook the turkey, and the breast meat is dry? Slice it thin and soak it in warm chicken or turkey stock.
2. How do I get the skin beautiful golden brown? Lots of butter! Separate the skin and push butter directly over the meat then spread more butter over the outside of the skin. Also cover just the breast of th…

My Favorite Jeans for Fall 2014 featuring Madewell


I love to wear dresses all summer, but in the fall, I practically live in my jeans. A nice top with skinny jeans is an easy and comfy way to look put-together. When the weather just starts to turn, I go for my skinnies, ballet flats, and a blouse. Then when winter sets in, I'm usually in my skinnies with riding boots, a sweater, and a pea coat. Though now that I'm in the south, I may have to rework my winter wardrobe. But no matter the weather, jeans are always a staple of mine.

There are a few standout trends in fall denim 2014; like coated jeans, slim boyfriend jeans, and patchwork jeans. Wide-leg jeans are also back, but I'm not too crazy about that. I've featured Madewell to showcase my favorite jean trends for fall, because they have such a wide variety of skinny jeans for 2014. When it comes to jeans, Madewell is a leading seller. They have their own "denim bar" on madewell.com, and offer free shipping, free returns, and even free hemming.

Madewell also has a denim donation program in which you can recycle your old jeans.They've partnered with Blue Jeans Go Green to turn old denim into housing insulation for people in need. Though that is a reward in itself, you also get $20 off your purchase for bringing in a pair of old jeans. This offer is for a limited time through October 6th and must be completed in-store.



Madewell's Skinny Skinny jean is super-slim, perfect to pair with a sexy pair of pumps and a nice blouse. The biker-zip version on the left would also look great with ankle boots.

The Skinny Crop is a great transitional jean for fall. Hitting just above the ankle, you can style it just as you would traditional skinnies, though because they won't bunch at the bottom, they're perfect to wear with sandals.

If you've ever worn leather pants (I unfortunately have), you know that they can be uncomfortable, and they can look a bit strange if you don't style them just right. The Madewell coated jeans offer the slick look of leather in the comforts of denim. I really like the racetrack version in black on the right.

I love the boyfriend jeans trend, though it's a bit too baggy for my taste. The Madewell slim boyjean is the perfect fit if you want a straight-leg, slightly loose boyfriend jean. Pair it with pumps and a blazer for fall.

Madewell's new alley-straight skinny jeans are still fairly slim but has a little give. I'm admittedly quite curvy, so even at my thinnest, I don't always like how my jeggings look with flats as opposed to boots. These seem like they would help to balance everything out.
