It’s The Holiday Season
November is here & holiday season is in full swing. This time of year brings holiday parties & events as well as lots time with family & friends. Being the planner at heart that I am, I’ve already started putting together outfits for occasions I’ll be attending over the next couple of months. Doing this really eases any stress about what to wear or wondering if I even have anything to wear. Also, if anything should come up out of the blue, I’ll already have cute & festive outfits at the ready.
Thanksgiving is a big event coming this month. I know sometimes it can be hard to know what to wear or what to bring to these gatherings. On the one hand, you want to look cute & put together, especially if you are seeing people you don’t get to see everyday, & on the other hand, you don’t want to look over-dressed or uncomfortable. Here’s what I’m going to wear & bring to Thanksgiving this year.
“But What Would I Wear?”
It seems as though everyone experiences similar sentiments about finding the right outfit as the Grinch sometimes. (see here) If you know me, I always tend to lean on the slightly over-dressed side, but this year I think I have found the perfect look that combines function & fashion.
At the end of summer, when I started to plan ahead for fall content, I knew my wardrobe was in desperate need of one item: a camel turtleneck. I searched everywhere to find the perfect quality piece at the right price. Finally, I found this gorgeous top at J. Crew. Unfortunately it was backordered for a while, but it’s finally here & is indeed just the thing my wardrobe needed.
This camel turtleneck is perfectly paired with this Chicwish floral skirt for a flattering & feminine silhouette. You guys know I love a good silhouette! The classic cut of this skirt as well as the metallic thread that runs throughout the fall toned florals, elevates the look of the whole outfit. Not only does this outfit look good, it is also cozy enough to curl up on the couch under a blanket to watch the parade or a football game, take a post-Thanksgiving meal nap, or to toss an apron overtop & bake a pie in the kitchen in.
You can really go so many different ways with accessories & layers with an outfit like this. For me, I always love wearing my trench coat on Thanksgiving. I don’t know why, but it’s a thing for me. Then I added some faux fur for warmth & extra style. To keep with the classic & comfortable vibes, I felt that sticking to a neutral pair of ballet flats was the way to go, but this look could also be worn with a pair of boots for added warmth.
Get Creative With Your Dish
I’ve been completely inspired by floral cakes as of late, so I thought why not use some creativity & bring something beautiful & tasty to Thanksgiving this year. Now you definitely don’t have to make a cake, but let me challenge you to get a bit creative this year. Put your own spin on a classic dish, or just go the extra mile to add a lovely visual to the thing you want to bring to your Thanksgiving feast. Put a little bit of you into your creation. Not only will others love it, but I guarantee you’ll enjoy preparing it.
