Happy Thanksgiving week, friends!
I’m truly thankful for each and every one of you. Cheers to a week filled with family gatherings, grateful hearts, tasty turkey and a little bit (or A LOT a bit) of Black Friday shopping! I’ll be sharing my favorite Black Friday finds and some insider shopping tips here on the blog this week and also on my Instagram – so stay tuned!
Since I’ll be vacationing with family in Cayman come Thursday (sporting swimsuits, not sweaters!), I’ve been donning my Thanksgiving outfits early this year. Like I mentioned in this previous post, I’m all about dressing for the season & incorporating autumnal hues into my wardrobe. I’m crazy about this particular color pairing of eggplant & rust. Isn’t the marriage of these two fall hues simply sublime?
I must confess, even though Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I’m already in a Christmas state of mind! My Harry Connick Jr. Christmas playlist just happens to be playing in the background as I write… and nothing gets me more excited for the season than a jazzy rendition of a Christmas classic. I know, I know – it’s only November! I just can’t help myself. It’s never too early for Christmas cheer in my book.
As tempting as it may be to break out the ornaments and deck the halls a few days early, I’ll put off trimming the tree until after Turkey Day. In the meantime, I’ve got the most eye-catching ensemble for you to rock wherever you plan on spending your Day of Thanks! It’s a showstopper.
As I’ve stated before, I’m kind of a jumpsuit junkie, so this rich, plum-colored pinafore was a definite YES. Isn’t the buckle detailing at the waist darling? Because no girl wants a baggy blouse bunching up under her jumper (nightmare!), I chose to wear a bodysuit underneath. Bodysuits are an absolute lifesaver when you need a smooth layer that stays put!
This wildly popular Clare V. clutch (aka: Best. Purchase. Ever.) added the pop of print that this look otherwise lacked. In the words of MC Hammer, this clutch is quite literally “too legit to quit”. It goes with anything and everything. If you haven’t yet taken the plunge and purchased this sassy sidekick of a clutch, the time is now. Heck, wrap it up for yourself and stick it under the tree! You’ll thank me later.
And, in closing, these ankle-wrap heels kind of speak for themselves don’t they? They’re pretty darn perfect and comfy as a cloud so I highly recommend you add them to your collection. I’m a firm believer that good shoes take you good places. 🙂
