Thanksgiving Threads

H&M Dress (worn as a top) | Express Skirt | New Look Shoes (similar) | Sole Society Bag

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. No matter how amazing or tough the year has been, there's always much to be thankful for. 

If you're still scrambling for a Thanksgiving outfit, try pairing a solid top in a color perfect for fall with a printed bottom. Make sure you have room to "expand," if you know what I mean.

I originally wore this look to church a few weeks back, but I would totally wear it to a daytime work event in the fall or Thanksgiving dinner. It's the perfect mix of comfy and festive.

Happy Thanksgiving!

New In // Zara, H&M & Chicwish

Not Pictured: Zara Navy Tube Skirt | Black Bucket H&M Bag (smaller version)

Black, grey and white were [unintentionally| the focus of my last shopping haul, a trend that typically manifests for me around this time of year. I can't help it; cooler temps inspire me gravitate towards darker, basic colors, if nothing else because of the ease of mixing, matching and layering.

If I've learned nothing else this go 'round, I've learned I can't say no to a black knee length dress with sleeves... So, don't ask me to. Zara came through with the perfect all-purpose corporate or dress-up option while H&M provided the comfy casual style. I've always wanted a blouse with an embellished neckline, and Chicwish had a great quality choice that will pair nicely with my new full pleated skirt boasting an adorable check pattern. 

While my fall/winter color palette has transitioned, I bought my first "sweater" for the season in the form of a black and white knit sweatshirt top from H&M. And, shocker -- I bought another pair of black pumps. But, they are warranted due to the unique velvet/patent mix and sexy silhouette ideal for ensembles for this time of year. Not pictured are my navy mid-calf length tube skirt from Zara and black bucket bag from H&M, both of which I plan to style so many ways, you may just get tired of seeing them. So, don't be too sad that I didn't include their photos in this most.

Dressed-Up Denim

H&M Dress | Zara Heels | Rebecca Minkoff Bag (similar)

A denim dress is one of the most versatile closet staples. Dressed down with a pair of flats and a carry-all tote for errands or dressed up with t-strap heels and a statement bag for a lunch date, the denim dress rules daytime.
