What to Wear: Thanksgiving Dinner

Outfit Inspiration: What to wear to Thanksgiving Dinner

Oh Thanksgiving, how I love thee.  Turkey and stuffing and pumpkin pie, oh my.  While what to eat is an easy decision, the outfit is another story.  One must look fashionable but feel comfortable and ready to clean their plate.  I love this look, especially the sweater because the color just screams Thanksgiving, don't you think?  I chose the maxi skirt not only for it's fabulous quotient, but because it definitely leaves room for your waist to expand - which let's be real - it's totally going to happen.  The height from the boots will keep this look from feeling schlumpy.  (screw you spell check, that's totally a word)  Oh, and don't forget the oversize handbag to carry home those leftovers, if you're lucky enough to snag any. 

Ok, now onto some real ish.  I know I should not be encouraging one to eat so much they gain 5 lbs in 2 hours...but hey it's Thanksgiving.  The holidays can be a scary time, with all the celebration we are bound to eat at least one forkful too much.  Let's not drive ourselves crazy worrying about weight gain, and let's just enjoy ourselves.  If you're really worried about gaining weight this holiday season, you need to read this post about how to avoid it. It's simple and brilliant (if I do say so myself)  and it is a practice I live my life by.  

Enough talking...check out some more Thanksgiving outfit pieces below.

Weekly Roundup: Item of the Day


What is the weekly roundup you ask?  Well, because I spend so much time "window shopping" online, and I always find such amazing things, (that I can't always buy of course) so I thought I should share my edit with the rest of the fashion lovers.  

Since you may have missed it on Facebook, I've rounded up all the pieces I featured throughout the week.  The best part is, it happens to make a great outfit! 

Don't want to wait a whole week to see my favorite picks?  Like my page on Facebook and you'll never miss it again!  (Which I definitely recommend, as some of the items I featured here are already selling out!)

Designer Love: Alexander McQueen

Images via Alexander McQueen

The other day I was scrolling through my Facebook feed (as I do every morning when I wake up) and I came across these beautiful images announcing the Alexander McQueen Fall Collection.  Of course I clicked right on through and was mesmerized by the photos before me.  I especially fell in love with the lantern sleeves featured throughout the collection, not to mention the amazing coats.  Okay, let's be real...I loved it all as I always do.  Thank you Sarah Burton for keeping the vision alive.  I'm forever amazed and inspired.
