Since Thanksgiving is but a mere three days away, I thought this would be a great time to share with you what my style-plans are for the day of! Hopefully this can help inspire you to make your own Thanksgiving style choices just in time! I also wanted to show you some of my fall decorations in case you're hosting Thanksgiving dinner and need some last minute decoration!
I purchased some strands of leaves right after they went on sale last year (when all of the Christmas decoration came out in like, July!). I actually took two strands because they felt sparse on their own. I twisted them together; one of leaves and one of fall flowers, to make a thicker garland. I cut it to the length of my fireplace mantle and wrapped the scraps around the candles sitting on the corner of my countertop.
I also purchased a brown vase to hold our long-stick matches. Neutral colors make it easy to transition from everyday decor to holiday decor.
I do something similar with my candles. I have mostly white, cream and brown candles and can mix and match to add them to my different holiday decorations. These candles are always on the mantle, with or without garland they add a cozy feeling to the space.
Onto the Thanksgiving outfit! My suggestion (and what I am wearing) is an oversized sweater. These are perfect for a feasting-holiday! I would say the best thing about a sweater is that they are casual but can be dressed up!
I'm pairing my sweater with leggings. Word of advice; if you choose to wear leggings please make sure your top goes past your butt! No "see-through" anything at dinner, OK?
Leggings are great for casual or dressy, depending on what you pair them with. I think they are great, especially when worn with an oversized sweater. You're ready to EAT!
But they may not be for a fancy five-star dinner.. Sorry.
I'll be topping my feet in my knee-high leather boots. Can you tell they are well-loved?
For my accessories I have chosen black, gold and white. Pictured above is my long fringe necklace. I love the texture it creates with the knitting of the sweater. I am also loving the leather that matches my boots.
I'm also mixing up the types of bracelets I'm wearing. When in doubt, try layering different styles together.
I also consider fragrance an accessory. I have ready Coach's Poppy scent. It's a deep floral, super feminine, and not overly tangy (which can cause people around you to sneeze).
I'm planning a brown smokey eye for my makeup and maybe a plum lip!
Also, straight hair with the ends rounded under for a polished look.
Nails.... hm, white stilettos?? We'll see...
What are your Thanksgiving style plans?
