Happy Monday, gang! We’re steamrolling our way through November. Today marks the halfway point. Here’s the holiday countdown: 10 days until Thanksgiving, 40 days until Christmas, and, gulp, 46 days until we usher in a New Year. And 21 days until yours truly has her walkout basement renovation complete. But the fun stuff starts to happen this week with the cabinets installed and paint and more paint. For good measure, I threw in my upstairs bookcase, which is being painted navy blue to match my study, and the main bath that will be transformed into black and white. Good news! The internet is back up and running; praise the Lord, although I’m still waiting for my garage door to be fixed while I wait for the new one. Yep, still parking in the driveway…
While we have holidays on our minds, it’s time to shift gears to cozy outfits to wear. First up is Thanksgiving, which can go from casual to glam, depending on your setting. Last week I shared my Thanksgiving Tablescape. This week it’s all about What to Wear to Thanksgiving.
Today’s outfit is simple yet chic that’s perfect to wear to a casual Thanksgiving dinner. If you exchange the faux suede shell (sold out, similar here and here) for a winter white top, you easily convert this outfit into a monochromatic look so many of us love to wear. But I decided to opt for a pop of color and added an animal print scarf to boot. A hooded coatigan adds a layer of warmth without being too heavy. It’s recommended to size down unless you want to layer bulky sweaters underneath. A pair of boot cut jeans in winter white match the coatigan to a T. The reviews are mixed on sizing, but I felt they were TTS – I’m wearing a size 8. Boot cut jeans are flattering to every body shape as they hug the hips and thighs then widen from the knee to the hem giving balance to the shoulders. A little bit sexy, a little bit polished, these jeans are perfect to wear with boots. Western boots are trending this season, so I decided to add croc-embossed boots to my lineup that come in snake print, black, and eggshell. So far this season, I’ve worn these boots with a dress, skinny jeans (yep, still loving them, especially when it’s time to tuck into boots), and now boot cut jeans.
