The perfect Thanksgiving outfit

This outfit is perfect for the day of Thanksgiving or the day after Thanksgiving if you have to go to work and need to hide the after effects of the turkey and pumpkin pie you had (don’t worry – I won’t judge)! The keys to a Thanksgiving outfit is comfort and flexibility.  Leggings are perfect for that as well as a belt that you can adjust over the course of the day.  And the pop of a fall color in the leggings and scarf make the outfit festive!

Scarf / Boots / Dress / Belt / Leggings

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving with your family and friends!  I’ll be going over my parent’s to spend the day with them and my sister.

What I wore for New Year’s Eve!

My New Year’s Eve this year was very low-key.  My boyfriend and I just moved into a new apartment together and NYE was our first night in the new place!  That night was after a very long day of packing and moving, so we were both exhausted.  We made dinner, had champagne and watched the Times Square celebration on TV.  But, even though we were just hanging around, I felt like dressing up a little..

Earrings – I don’t remember where I got these..maybe Filene’s Basement?
Gold top – H&M
Gray tank top – Target
Jeggings – Joe’s Jeans
Boots – Aldo

What to wear to a work holiday party

I’m lucky enough to work at a company that goes all out for our annual holiday party where there is plenty of food, drinks, dressing up, friends, and dancing.  Most of the girls wear a cocktail dress and guys wear suits.  For some reason this year, I didn’t want to wear a dress.  I didn’t want to wear a dress I had already worn and I didn’t feel like spending money on a new dress, so I decided to work with what I had to put together this outfit:

I already had in my closet the skirt, shoes and necklace.  All I needed was a sequin top.  After going to H&M, Ann Taylor Loft, TJ Maxx, and Marshall’s, I finally found what I was looking for at Forever 21 – for only $12!  While I was there I also bought a pair of earrings..and a belt..and a scarf..  What did you wear to your work holiday party?

Top – Forever 21

Skirt – Rodarte for Target

Shoes – M by Marinelli (from DSW)

Necklace – from Filene’s Basement (it was my back-up necklace for last year’s work holiday party outfit)

Earrings – Forever 21
