20 Nov Turning Heads Linkup – A Thanksgiving Outfit Idea
It really is amazing that I got these shots to share with you today. We had 40-45 degree temps last week and it rained the entire week! The weekend was my saving grace when I could take blog pictures. Today, I am sharing a potential outfit for Thanksgiving. I do tend to dress up more for Holidays, but it will be a quieter one this year, with my family out of state and us visiting my Moms at Christmas time. T Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
You all know by now my love for Fall. The colors, the fabrics, textures and the ability to be more creative with clothes layering and mixing patterns etc. I was quite happy with how this outfit with burgundy, rusts and golden mustard came together.
have been working on my denim wardrobe over the past year, finally being able to wear jeans more often, without discomfort and sensitivity I used to have.
I love classic styles- bootcuts, flares etc. but, there have been fun cuts and details to denim over the past 2-3 yrs and I couldn’t resist the tulip hem. I love that they highlight whatever shoe you are wearing. It was, years ago, that you wore a pointed toe shoe and most of the shoe disappeared into the length of the jeans. Now, we have tulip hems, step hems, cropped flare, slits, and more interesting designs.
I wore a split hem design on this FRAME denim pair I bought from the Real Real this year.
I bought the jeans I am wearing today on LOFT in my normal size 4.
My hubby bought me these Franco Sarto jacquard booties last year with a few hints, I just adore all of the rich fall shades and wear them often.
Let me tell you about my sweater…
The orange sweater had yet to make its debut on the blog. This knitted, flared design was first spotting on Poshmark, via Anthropologie. I love the knitted detail and peplum style, plus its cozy goodness! My friend, Kellyann, calls me the Queen of Poshmark! I have bought more secondhand this year, but i have been shopping this way for years. Thanksgiving was the perfect time to wear it. If you have heard me talk about Poshmark and want to know more read – Poshmark, What is It and How to Shop There.
I know I would help mom in the kitchen, as we woke up early on Thanksgiving day to prepare for company. There was the “big table” for adults, and the “little table” for the kids. I couldn’t wait to sit at the big table! Let’s face it, it was a beautiful wood table designed to be enjoyed, not the little fold out that the kids had. But I wouldn’t complain! My relatives would visit, mom would cook all day and I would help set the table and help with the sides. We always dressed up.
Later, the triptophan would work its magic, and I would get very drowsy wondering just how long my parents would be up chatting with family. As a kid, I would go to sleep when I needed to, telling whomever was in the house, “good night”. Maybe that wasn’t the best of manners, but when you are tired you are tired! Turkey does that to you.
The tradition of watching football was what the men did. Lots of shouting, yelling, and excitement in the other room. My Dad was a big time Steeler’s fan, and I would joke you could hear him down the street!
This year, I miss all of us getting together for Thanksgiving, but we are all over, in different states, and we will be gathering together for Christmas in Pittsburgh with my mom. I think the older I get, the more sentimental I become.
What will you wear on Thanksgiving? What are some of your traditions?
