For all you Fashionista’s, I know Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without a fab & festive outfit. Yes, we enjoy those mashies and, lets be real, the endless amounts of wine, but putting on a cute outfit is what makes the holidays fun! Then, there’s the struggle. You want to drown yourself in the holiday comfort food. So what do you do? Throw on sweatpants? Or stay away from the goodies? I’ll tell you…NEITHER! How about choosing an outfit that is both cute and comfortable? It doesn’t hurt that your bank account is still in tact, too. Lets take a look!
First & Foremost, the statement piece. What is a piece you want to showcase!? Of course it was this amazing plaid throw that can be worn as a shawl or tied up as a scarf. (The best part—the wind decided to drown me in it throughout the shoot…but of course we made it work!) It’s Top Shop that I got from Nordstrom Rack on Clearance for only $25.
I highly recommend taking advantage of the sales at Nordstrom Rack because investing in these statement pieces for the Holidays will keep you festive all year round. Pay attention to when they have EXTRA 25% off clearance, too!
Now I kept the rest of the look simple! I paired it with comfy black jeans that were EXTRA 30% off clearance at Forever 21.….. & this new $10 camel loose sweater that I bought recently from H&M! The deals are just too real y’all. And to finish the look, I added a vintage pearl necklace that’s been in my family for decades, a moody but festive lip, & the most comfy pair of booties I own.
And there you have it. For all the food lovers, you can be fashionable during the holidays. And for all the fashion lovers, you can indulge in all your festive faves while still feeling & looking fab! I hope everyone takes the time to reflect on what makes them thankful this year. Enjoy your family, friends, & a little bit (if not, a lot) of boozin’. CHEERS!
and sometimes this happens in the windy city- I told you we would make it work. (;
