I absolutely live for the month of October, Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays. These pop-up museums and events have been happening for some time now in New York City, have I gone to any one of them? No. Why? Because I get “Yeah we should go!” and then it never happens. Finally, I was able to convince some amazing people that it was a great idea to go to the Nightmare Machine in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. And let me tell you this, IT DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT! And of course, I dressed up for the occasion…
Fall weather had been slow to approach here in NYC – so I decided to take a leap and splurge on some new items. Lately, I’ve been feeling as if my style is evolving into a new chapter. The esthetic remains the same of what I have always loved – graphic tees, jeans, converse, anything and everything athleisure. For some reason, I feel as if it has gone to a somewhat more mature level. So without any more babbles… let’s jump into what I did purchase.
After finally coming back down from the universe & the clouds above, I found a creative kick in the ass to get back into the groove of things. I picked this dress up pretty recently from Dynamite and it was for 3 reasons: Read More
My daily wear is pretty casual. I prefer comfort over anything, this Target jacket I found is perfect for feeling comfortable and looking presentable. Finding a jacket that can be worn 100 different ways means I am getting my moneys worth, and I am all about having an item in my closet that gives me options. Read More
Faux fur coats are my favorite, who doesn’t want to feel like they are wrapped up in a blanket while you are walking the cold streets, dodging puddles of unknown liquids and weaving throughout the crowded sidewalks of NYC. I spotted this beautiful faux fur jacket in H&M while on my lunch break, initially I walked away due to this very inconsistent weather happening. But I couldn’t get it out of my mind.. I had to have it! I loved that I could dress this look up or dress it down. Today I went a little of both, mostly because it was nearly 70 when I shot this look. Read More
I cannot believe almost thanksgiving is a week away! The reality of a thanksgiving outfit is you want to be comfortable spending time with family around the dinner table for nonstop eating. I used to immediately regret wearing pants that are too tight after a turkey day meal when I was younger, so once I was able to buy my own clothes I planned my attire properly. Stretchy fabric and material that “gives” (pun intended) was a necessity, I wanted to enjoy my day of feasting and being grateful with my family.
Yesterday’s look is a good place to start:
My most recent post brings in the leopard trend to this look. Don’t let the jeans deceive you as they are stretchy & very comfortable. Take off the leather jacket and you have a comfortable and stylish look for Thanksgiving Day.
Above are some more of my looks that could be potential thanksgiving day looks. All of these looks can be found in my recent blog posts.
Never forget to consider a dress…which stretches. Although I am wearing a sleeveless dress in one of my suggestions you can incorporate a long sleeve dress like this one here from Express or Nordstrom rack option here.
My Joggers would have to be my top pick for a thanksgiving outfit. An altenerate way to style this look is by adding a black sweater over the tank or even a plain black tee. Recently I wore this look to work, and paired it with my peep toe ankle booties from my green vest look. It was definitely an option for my own Turkey Day look…
Another suggestion would be to wear a tunic, last year I wore a sweater tunic from Dynamite and leggings with a leather side panel. Not only was I comfortable but the outfit looked dressier than expected.
Below are some more options that you can use for your turkey day look:
- Express fitted crew neck sweater
- Express cold shoulder sweater
- Free people off the shoulder sweater
- Free people baby doll sweater dress
- Dynamite Mixed Fabric Shirt
- Dynamite Sweater with mesh insert
- Dynamite Sweater Tunic
- Dynamite High Rise Leggings (Comes in multiple colors)
- Express Faux Suede ankle zip leggings
- Full tilt Dusty Floral Dress
- Taylor & Rose Floral Dress
- Blu Pepper Cowl Neck Sweater Dress
- American Eagle soft cardigan
- Amazon Blanket Scarf
- Amazon Lace Up Sweater Dress
- Amazon Lace Up High Low Sweater
- Forever 21 Geo-Pattern Faux Fur Vest
- Forever 21 Oversized Faux Fur Pink Coat
- Charlotte Russe Faux Fur Vest
All of these options can be easily mixed and matched with each other. Also don’t be afraid to search on Amazon… recently I had been looking for a Lace Up Sweater and was shocked to see the difference in prices for these. They are extremely popular among many bloggers I follow & they look so cozy. All about comfort on this blog!
I know included some Pink items as well but don’t forget pink was a popular color on the fall/winter 16 runways. Personally I think it’s a nice trend to experiment with, it’s also very different from the typical fall colors.
I will be posting my Thanksgiving look next Thursday live from the feast at my home! Stay tuned for my look!
