Thanksgiving Outfit Inspirations
First, I apologize for the delay in getting yesterday’s post published. It’s been quite hectic the past couple of days and it’s all I can do to keep my head straight. You know what this means right? Since I’m late with yesterday’s, today’s won’t be posted as soon as I would have liked…oh well what am I gonna do?
I wasn’t even thinking that next week was Thanksgiving until a friend of mine stopped by yesterday. We were shooting the breeze when she says something about the holiday next week. I didn’t give it much thought because I insisted it was the week after next.
Well, I was wrong, proof of which was that ‘deer in the headlights look of sheer panic.’ The reason being-while I am not preparing the dinner this year, my cousin and I talked about delivering dinners to a couple of shut-ins whom we personally know.
Once the meals are delivered and we spend some time with each of them it’s off to my cousin’s house we go for fried turkey-YUM!
Anyhoo, since I now know for sure that Thanksgiving is next Thursday (which also happens to be my brother’s birthday) I searched far and wide for some outfit ideas. Of course I’m exaggerating because as we know far and wide is no further than my computer but it did require some maneuvering. So without further delay I’m going to describe four outfits that are shown within this post. Please keep in mind that this post is only intended to provide some suggestions and I am not focusing on the products pictured.
- Thanksgiving Set #1 – Since plaid is so prevalent this fall I wanted to incorporate it into a couple of these sets. This one is semi-casual since the leggings are of a higher quality material than the run of the mill type. For us ladies over a certain age we look better pairing leggings with a longish top to cover the nether regions. The sweater dress is a cozy looking top that goes well with the plaid leggings. A multi colored scarf that adds a pop of color works as a great accessory in addition to drop earrings and a cuff bracelet. To dress this outfit up you could swap out the ankle boots for a pair of heels or dressier boots.
- Black & Gray Plaid Leggings
- Burgundy Oversized Cable Knit Sweater Dress
- Chunky Heeled Ankle Boots
- Abstract Print Infinity Scarf
- Black Tote Bag
- Thanksgiving Set #2 – I know I said I wasn’t going to focus on the actual item but I have to make an exception for the blazer in this set. It’s a luscious double lapel fit and flare blazer that draws attention to the waist. The double lapels and cream color really make this blazer stand out. For this ensemble I paired it with a cream cami but since the skirt is multi-colored you could select a top in any of the shades within the skirt. Again you’ll note the skirt is plaid with one of my favorite color combos. Finishing off this sophisticated outfit are burgundy pumps and handbag. I’d round it out with pearl earrings, statement necklace and a simple bracelet for a stunning look.
- Cream Blazer
- Cream Cami
- Black, Gray & Burgundy Tartan Skirt
- Burgundy Suede Kitten Heel Pumps
- Burgundy Mini Textured Satchel
- Thanksgiving Set #3 – Do you detect a theme here what with the burgundy, plaid, leopard? It honestly wasn’t intentional but here we go again, this time with a crisp, white button down shirt, dark jeans with a 70’s style flare, cardigan and leopard flats. The cognac bag goes well with the flats. I’d add a multi-layered necklace and earrings to this set as a finishing touch.
- White Button Down Shirt
- Blue/Black Flared Denim Jeans
- Gray Button Down V-Neck Cardigan
- Leopard Flats
- Cognac Pebble Textured Vegan Faux Leather Satchel
- Thanksgiving Set #4 – Classy is the word that comes to mind with this ensemble. The burgundy color of the blazer in this set is a nice contrast against the leopard top. The black jeans, pumps and clutch make this outfit look super chic. Again, adding a few jeweled accessories and you’ll look impeccable.
- Burgundy Blazer
- Sleeveless Leopard Top
- Black Straight Leg Jeans
- Black Suede Kitten Heel Pumps
- Black Beaded Clutch
Since I’m backed up a bit and I’ll be even more so tomorrow (I had my hair completely cut off and I’m getting it colored tomorrow-YAY). I’ll try my best to do a post for tomorrow once I get the diabetes one completed.
Thank you for bearing with me and I’ll talk with you again soon.
