Ruffle Sweatshirt + The Sparkliest Shoes EVER!

Sweatshirt: Topshop | Skirt: Current Elliot, sold out; similar here, here and here | Shoes: Gucci; wear with these socks by Hue | Bag: Céline | Sunnies: Kapten & Son | Lips: Smashbox ‘Fig’ Lipstick & Be Legendary ‘Pout’ Lipgloss

I LOVE a sweatshirt!  I swear, I could just live in them.  Give me a hoodie everyday for real!  I thought this one was cute enough to actually wear in public, and I can sorta get away with it for work.  I put together this outfit, and found a way to dress it up for work, but then would totally put it back to jeans or cutoffs on days off.  It has just the amount of detail to make it wearable for the public haha!

I have the hardest time finding scarves that I really love.  I think it’s because the fabric is so close to my face, and I want to be sure that it’s flattering.  Especially when playing with color.  I love how edgy this one is and I LOVE the colors in it!  It’s also warm with the 100% cashmere!  My jacket is also an incredible value for what it is.  I think you get a lot of bang for your buck with this one!  It looks so designer and the fit is amazing.  I seriously want it in every color!!

Thanksgiving Outfit Idea #4

bp sweater, celine, vince camuto booties, topshop denim, celine aviators, leopard scarf

Sweater: BP (under $40!)  | Denim: Topshop | Booties: Vince Camuto | Bag: Céline; get the look for less here | Sunnies: Céline, very similar Ray Ban’s here | Rings: BaubleBar | Scarf: old from JCrew, but very similar here by Sole Society

If your family is more on the casual side like mine, this outfit would be perfect to wear on Thanksgiving Day.  I seriously think this sweater is the best thing I own for under $40!  It’s so soft and cozy, and perfect for the not so chilly weather we’ve been having.  I wore it to work last week and loved how comfy it was!  If you live in an area where you can layer, a chambray or white collared shirt would look adorable underneath.  It does run a size big.  You can size down one size in it and still get the oversized look, no problem.   I hope you enjoy and thank you so much for reading!

Thanksgiving Outfit Idea #3

rag and bone sweater, frame denim, over the knee boots, goyard st louis tote, stuart weitzman boots, highland

Sweater: Rag & Bone | Denim: Frame | Boots: Stuart Weitzman; get the look for under $100 here! | Hat: Kyi Kyi  | Bag: Goyard

If this isn’t a perfect Thanksgiving outfit, I don’t know what is?!  Rag & Bone did a similar version of this sweater last year, and it was soooo cute!  I’m so happy they brought it back in a newer style this year.  It’s a looser knit, so I wore a cream cami underneath it for a little extra warmth and coverage.  It’s a kind of short, but hit me right at the waist line.  If you’re longer in the torso, I would suggest wearing high waisted denim or a high waisted skirt, etc.

Outfit Idea for Thanksgiving Eve

topshop top, valentino booties, valentino rockstud, burberry scarf, celine sunnies, celine nano, frame denim, black ripped denim

Top: Topshop | Denim: Topshop | Booties: Valentino (perfect heel height and SO comfy!) ; look for less here and here | Bag: Céline; get the look for less here, similar option here | Scarf: Burberry | Necklaces: Chanel pearls and Lana ‘Love’ | Rings: BaubleBar | Sunnies: Céline

The countdown is on!  With Thanksgiving only 2 weeks away, I am already starting to think about the holidays (what I’m wearing to different events, gifts that I can get and store away, different food dishes to make, the list goes on!).  Anyway, I thought this could be an outfit you could wear the night before if you have dinner plans or a house party.  It’s definitely more of a “going out/edgy” outfit, so I probably wouldn’t wear it on Thanksgiving, but around it or the weekend, for sure!

Happy Sunday y’all!  We have had the BEST weather in Tampa this weekend.  I was just sitting on my balcony last night and taking it all in.  I love sitting out there in my sweats and a glass of wine in hand.  It was probably in the low 70’s, which is sweatshirt weather to me haha!

Cold Weather Neutrals: Colorblocking, Plaid, & OTK Boots

rag and bone, blanket scarf, stuart weitzman boots, highland, equipment sweater, celine aviators, otk boots, over the knee boots

Sweater: Equipment | Cami: BP | Scarf: Rag & Bone | Denim: Frame | Hat: Rag & Bone | Boots: Stuart Weitzman; get the look for under $100 here! | Bag: Gucci

This sweater is so thin and lightweight, but also super warm and perfect for layering!  It’s crazy soft…I just wish all of my clothes felt like that!  When we shot this look, it was getting cold out because the sun was just about to go down.  The over the knee boots and blanket scarf were perfect and definitely kept me warm!  I linked a dupe for my Stuart Weitzman boots that are honestly soooo similar!  I couldn’t believe how much alike they actually are.  I think the Weitzman’s are more comfortable, but if you don’t have the money to spend on them, the Steve Madden’s are a great pair to get.
