The holiday season is finally here or should I say already here? ha. I feel as if these last couple of months have flown by. Thanksgiving is versatile as some people dress fancy and others keep it casual. After all we are all just sitting around at the kitchen table with the purpose of showing gratitude. Whether you enjoy dress up or not this look book covers various styles.
To finish off the look I am wearing the Chuck Taylor II’s in white. Do not ruin an outfit with the classic black, try white; they are easier to keep clean than you think. Having trouble believing me, check out my blog post on how I take care of mine, they are a year old now.
Whenever I travel to family for the holidays I skip the tiny purse and opt for a backpack to carry all the essentials. Fuzzy slippers, games, and the usual. It makes it easier to carry in dishes to the party as well as my stuff. ha. This look is easy to replicate with items from your closet.
Starting from the top this sheep sweater was a Macy’s find for about $20, I dressed it up by pairing it with one of my button up summer dresses from Abercrombie. Leave the bottom of the dress unbuttoned so that it looks more like a long shirt. Instead of wearing black I opted for a pair of burgundy leggings to be a little more festive. Pair it with some combat boots to finished off the look, these are from Steve Madden.
Sass in Stripes
Cord Overall Dress in Oxblood | ASOS
Semi dressed up for a day with the family or meeting the parents. Keep comfortable with this overall dress complete with real pockets that will fit a smart photo without it peeping out at the top. Two rear pockets and three pockets on the chest. I am wearing a UK size 10 in regular, shown. Originally I ordered a petite size but it was too short to me at only 5′ 2″. I sized up in order to pair it with sweaters so sizing really depends on how you want to style it. To finish off this look I have my favorite booties by Ugg.
Elegance in Burgundy
Yet another must have from Athleta for the season. Warm yet not too hot for a California Thanksgiving day or evening, pair it with a bomber for night time. Lets be honest you are spending a majority of your time indoors anyway. Although I recently purchased this dress a couple months ago it is no longer available on their site but several brands have been making tie front dresses so it should be fairly easy to find.
Yes ladies that is a hidden pocket, your assumptions are correct it will hold approximately two sticks of gum and one solo key. ha. Nonetheless this is one of my favorite dresses currently due to this tie detail that makes it appeal more elegant. It feels literally like a giant sweatshirt though so score for me. Paired with my Carlos knee high boots.
