Is it Thanksgiving break yet?!
For real though, I'm so excited to go home for a five day weekend with my family, including my sister who I haven't seen in a while. There's so many traditions during the break that I love, including seeing a new movie (either Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or Moana hopefully!), watching the Macy's Day Parade, a heavy delicious meal, and getting all decorated for Christmas! If there's one thing that is difficult about a holiday break, it's picking out an outfit to wear for the big day.
Usually I just go for a fancy dress that I can't wear too often, unless there's a few non-dress outfits that I want to wear instead. But this year, I found the perfect dress!
I got this dress from J. Crew, and it was originally around a hundred dollars. Luckily, it was on sale when I bought it and it was eighty dollars. Still expensive, but totally worth it! It's a flutter dress, with a gray-colored ponte knit material, grosgrain ribbon details, and a flirty skirt to bring out a feminine look that's perfect for a holiday party. I also love the plain black back of the top part!
For shoes, I always have my go-to classic pumps from J. Crew to go perfectly with the dress. If it's a little cold that day, simple black tights would also be a great match for the look.
And a hot pink wallet from Kate Spade, because why not? Makes the color-tone of the outfit pop a bit!
When it comes to makeup and hair, I would just go for a natural look with natural eyeshadow, eyeliner, and maybe a bright or dark lip shade. Curly hair is also great too, but if you want to try out a different hairstyle that is perfectly okay as well. You can do whatever you want with your nail polish, whether you want to keep them clear or paint them the same color of your lipstick.
I wouldn't wear a lot of jewelry either, at least no necklaces with this kind of dress. Chandelier-like earrings would be perfect, and a few rings and simple bracelets.
