Stripe Sweater Dress & Black Leather Boots - Fall Weather Wear

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! Definitely one of my favorite holidays and I am heading to Los Angeles with the family. My two kids, dad, and I are all going. I'm originally from Los Angeles so for me LA is all about visiting family and friends, especially since this is the first time I have been since my mom's passing this year. I'm super exciting, but I am also driving so I'm not that exciting about the 6 hours it will take, especially since this time I will be doing all the driving. 

It's starting to get cold now in the Bay Area. It has been raining on and off so it was time for me to get some warmer weather wear.  I pick up this lovely dress at Ross, which of course is one of my fav stores, for under $20 bucks whoohoo. It caught my eye when I first saw it, but wasn't sure at first how it would look on me. I'm typically cautious with bodycons, but I have recently starting using a new shape wear trick to help me get into all of those bodycons that I love seeing on other people even though my stomach is my problem area. 

The black boots I picked up at the Aldo Outlet in Livermore, CA. I hadn't been there yet so while my daughter was a birthday party near by I decided to check them out. Love the place and therefore probably shouldn't visit that often. LOL The Aldo store was having a sale were they were offering 50% off the lowest marked price. These boots were marked for $90 so I pick up these babies for $45 and they are actually leather. Man I love a good deal.
