A Thanksgiving Lowdown: What to wear and to bake!

It's time to eat until we think we can't eat anymore, take a nap, and then eat some more!
Happy Thanksgiving!
But most importantly next Thursday is about what we are THANKFUL for so... us gals here at Horseshoe feel extremely fortunate to get to spend time helping each of you lovely ladies. We love the interactions and relationships we build each day with so many amazing women.  We truly can't thank you enough!
You are all the BEST!

We put together some of our favorite items that would be great outfits for this coming holiday along with two family dessert recipes that are sure to please.
