Last Minute Thanksgiving Day Outfit

Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? Time has been moving so quickly. If you’re like me and the holiday really just snuck up on you. You might be scrambling for something to wear. It seems a little absurd to just sit in the living room but most us like to dress up for this day. It makes it feel special. ya know?

I created this last minute Thanksgiving Day outfit to work whether your family festivities require a formal or casual dress code. You’ll be able to accessorize accordingly. A long black dress with a bit of stretch is perfect for this day. It’ll keep you warm, looking great & comfortable. I’ve picked out a few options that can be bought in store if you scroll all the way down.

It’s coat season. Trench coats are one of the easiest ways to elevate a look. You all know I live by this saying which is why I like to invest in quality coats. This particular coat is by Reformation and is amazing. I’ve had it for about 2 years now and I never see myself getting rid of it.

To tie everything together I decided on green accessories. It really pops against the black of the dress and the camel of the coat. I usually like to pair 3 colors in my outfit if I’m not doing a monochromatic look. It’s my method and always helps keep my outfits balanced and chic. If you guys would like more insight into my “styling methods”  just leave a <3 in the comments.

My Take on the Athleisure Trend

adidas

This week has been going by super slow for me especially since I didn’t have Monday off. I’m so thrilled it’s Friday. I just want to snuggle in bed and watch Netflix all weekend. However, I can’t because I have a jam packed weekend of projects and planning.

A few weeks ago I gave some tips about how to make your wardrobe meet your lifestyle. In that post, I mentioned the trend athleisure. It’s basically made wearing workout gear acceptable in any setting. I mean most have been doing this since high school. But you know things don’t become trendy unless adopted by the fashion world. There have been so many brands and designers creating lines geared specifically toward this trend. So for the girl who loves sweats and jerseys looking chic became a whole lot easier.

I must admit I’m not the sweats and hoodie type of girl but I like the whole relaxed vibe around athleisure. When I saw this jersey by Adidas I had a little heart flutter. I mean it’s so fly. I had to get it and add my own twist to this trend.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Rocking Denim and Suede for Fall

denim and suede Happy Wednesday! It’s currently 9am and I’m listening to Solange’s, A Seat at The Table, trying to decide what I want for breakfast. If you haven’t heard this album I highly recommend you give a listen. My favorite songs have to be Cranes in the Sky and Weary, such beautiful lyrics. If you’ve listened to it, share your thoughts in the comments below.

Just wanted to pop in and give you some fall outfit realness. It feels like deja vu because I’m here another fall season rocking denim and suede and fringe. I know, the fringe is back! I introduced another trend I never thought I rock, a choker. I’m always so late but I have to feel compelled to wear trends, it’s the only way it feels authentic to my style. Shay Mitchell released a collab jewelry collection with Bauble bar which includes this choker, needless to say, I needed it. I love the glam. To balance out the bling of the choker I paired it with an all denim outfit.  If you want a few pointers on styling denim check out my post, 4 Tips for Rocking an All Denim Look, to help nail this look. Let me know your favorite thing to wear or do in the fall!
