Turkey Day Glam
Every year for Thanksgiving I ask myself what I should wear. Just about every girl does this. There are memes all over the internet about it. We sit there staring at our closet wondering what to wear to an event where we are literally just going to eat. Yes, it's silly, we know. Still every year, without fail, I find myself doing the same exact thing.
It's important to dress as comfortably as possible and still look presentable for the family photo. I typically go with a dress or a skirt because they're more comfortable than jeans (at least for me) and still look nice enough.
This white skirt from LOFT is super stretchy and comfortable, so it's perfect for a day dedicated to eating amazing food. The gold buttons add just enough dressy detail and the length is perfect. I love wearing white in the winter because it just feels like it matches the season. Don't listen to that liar who said white after Labor Day is a no no. They're wrong. Rock that winter white.
Who wouldn't want to wear a blanket to Thanksgiving dinner? Wearing this cape is essentially the same thing. The plaid pattern resembles the classic Burberry plaid and the colors are perfect for transitioning fall to winter. The fabric is very similar to fleece making it feel even more like a blanket. I received this as a gift, so I'm not totally sure where it came from. I do know that Cracker Barrel (of all places) has a decent selection of pieces like this if you wanted to check them out.
Since the cape is such a statement piece, I paired it with a plain, long sleeved black tee and black boots. Having too much color would have overpowered the entire look. I added this pretty necklace, that I've talked about here before, for a nice finishing touch.
This outfit looks super put together, yet it's very comfortable. It's easy to accomplish a similar look and feel for your Thanksgiving ensemble. Even pairing leggings with a long sweater and boots would be perfect.
I want to thank each and every one of you reading my blog. I'm nowhere near where I want to be on this journey, but it's your loyal readership that will get me where I want to be. Thanks to my friends and family who pushed me to finally start this blog after wanting to do it for years. Also, thanks to all of my awesome photographer friends who have helped make my vision a reality. Ya'll are awesome. Happy Thanksgiving!
