Plymouth rock!”, stock up on some stylish looks, fabulous entertaining pieces and health-forward finds to steel you for the season. These 16 November FINDS will get you through the holidays with style and grace.

A trendy fall look
You can never have too many sweaters for winter — that’s our motto. The unique side detail of this pewter-grey sweater gives it a trendy edge that you’ll definitely want to have in your closet. Dress it up with a fashion-forward fedora, and you’re set for a crisp autumn day in Louisville. Find this floppy brim fedora for $329, and this grey sweater for $375 at Peacock Boutique.
Fashion-forward winter coat
One of the saddest parts of cold-weather fashion is wearing a cute outfit and having to cover it up with a bulky winter coat. So, we found this fashion-forward bell-sleeve coat to be the perfect addition to your trendy fall wardrobe. This way you stay warm, but you also stay stylish. Find this neutral-colored tie coat for $875 at Clodhoppers.
Outdoor winter coat and hat
Bundle up with layers and this big winter coat, and you’re good for any adventure this season. Plus, hats are great for keeping your ears warm, but they’re also a savior if you’re having a bad hair day. Find this black winter coat for $100 and beanie for $40 at Water + Oak Outdoor Co.
They say “cold hands, warm heart,” but we think you can have a warm heart with warm hands too. These button-cuff gloves will go with just about any fall or winter outfit you throw on this season, so you can get a lot of use out of them. Find them for $24 at Dandelion Boutique.
We’re fond of wearing Louis Vuitton in the cooler seasons for the warm, brown tones, but it’s Louis Vuitton, so it’s in fashion any time of year, really. This necklace and cuff are a chic addition to a simple fall look. Find this necklace for $65 and cuff for $70 at Tunies Boutique.
FOR BURNING CALORIES
With the holidays coming, you may want to get a head start on burning some calories before you consume a week’s worth at Thanksgiving dinner. And just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you have to wear boring, neutral colors all the time. Spice things up by adding a bold pattern with these pink jungle-themed crop leggings and navy running jacket. Find this Luxletic jacket for $118 and these Luxletic crop leggings for $98 at Peppermint Palm.
Of course, you’ll need somewhere to wear your new workout clothes, so why not try out a new workout? Sweat and smile the calories away! We found an awesome deal for unlimited classes for a month for only $99. Find this new client deal at Barre3.
It may be cold outside, but you can heat things up in the kitchen with these Southern Belle-approved aprons. You’ll feel like a country version of Mrs. Claus. Find these Christmas aprons for $42 each at Summer Classics.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer will not come to your house unless you show him some love with this “Oh Deer” plate and Rudolph ornament. This is a great plate for your kids to set out cookies for Santa, or use it for holiday party goodies. Find the plate for $18 and wooden deer ornament for $8 at Darling State of Mind.
