It’s a Tuesday and a good day if you ask me. I only have one more day of class until a good ol’ 4 day weekend and I really cannot be more thrilled. I can surely tell you that I am much more excited to eat turkey than study the neural pathways one more damn time. During the boringness that is science classes at UNR, I take the time to plan my outfit for Thanksgiving.. so that way I can help you do the same.

I am just going to tell you now to skip the bedazzled sweatpants and ratty zip ups and opt for a cuter look. Your outfit needs to scream “I am absolutely the star of this family affair, but watch yourself because I am out for blood when it comes to my food”. In reality, your outfit should be what the family is thankful for.. girlfriend, give em something to talk about all the way up until Christmas Eve.. in a good way though.
I plan to wear something cute but comfy. Real cliché, I know. I love the idea of a cute sweater and some leggings, or you could even get wild with a little dress/skirt action. Who knows, just throwing some ideas out there?? I would really advise avoiding any outfits that look like they may also be worn by your great great grandmother, and maybe those that are only in fashion in late night clubs. There is nothing worse than being poorly dressed for an occasion.. or having to tell the 5th relative in a row that you really don’t know what you are going to do after college.
But these ideas will take all of the guesswork out of your wardrobe choices come Thursday. 🙂 Since I know I am cutting it a little close on the shopping train, you can even wear these looks to some upcoming holiday parties, Christmas in general, or just a night when you wanna look cute and festive.
Also please appreciate my neutral color scheme because there is nothing better than matching the leaves for just a little longer before they live us and get covered in snow this winter. Get into that wardrobe and pick out that outfit ASAP!
I don’t even know where these titles are coming from anymore.. I just know that I feel weird typing them. My brain throws some weird things out there and half of the time I think to myself, I wonder what people would think if they heard 90% of what I think but don’t say out loud. You should feel lucky that you only get to read the filtered 10%. I swear I am saving you.
Very important points of discussion in our world today but I want to talk to you about the most important one.. Did you know that showing your bare back is the new cleavage?! Shocking, I know. But apparently these days there is something spicy about a plain old back. So pull that neck line up and show off that backside, girl.
A great upside to backless tops is that your dad, brother, or any other male that has a pulse will greet you with the comment: “You forgot the rest of your shirt.” It doesn’t get funnier every time, but just laugh because it makes them feel better. 😉 Really though, a backless shirt or two is a great addition to your wardrobe. You can wear it with a cute bralette or go crazy and bare it all from the lower back, all the way up. You could even save money on bras that way too! look at me saving your money while I tell you to spend it. 🙂
I love a high neck top with an open-back because it kinda gives the vibe that I am all covered up, and then BAM turn it around and I lost the whole back half of my shirt. It’s a real fun surprise. Also, you can go flowy or tight, patterned or solid, or cropped or full length and a backless top will always be the right way to go. Here are a few to choose from, from me to you. <3
So remember that you can’t go frontless and that backless is really the only way to go! I hope you love them all.
Guess what!! Today’s post is my 100th one to hit the blog! That is truly so so wild to me. I have almost had the blog up and running for a year now too, which is even crazier if you ask me! I was thinking I was going to go big for my 100th post, but them realized that my 1 year post would be shortly behind it, so I figured that the November 7th post will be a big ol celebration instead.. like with cake and balloons or something.. that you will have to buy for yourself and eat in the comfort of your own home. Sounds fun, right?
I kinda really wanted to do the thing you do in elementary school for your 100th day of school and dress up as 100 year-old geezers, but my nursing home outfit is in the wash.. So since today is like any other day, I have a fashion post right here for ya filled with a super cute trend this season. Drumroll please…. that trend is checkers, gingham, black and white boxes things. Whatever you wanna call it, I’ll roll with it.
Fall patterns are my favoriteeeee compared to any other season. I bet you never really thought about it, but there are certain popular patterns depending on the season, and leave-falling season is no different. In winter you’ll see snowflakes & stars, spring is florals & stripes, summer goes to palm leaves and polka dots, and fall brings us to checkers & leopard. So now that you have that little tidbit of knowledge (don’t ever say I never taught you anything) and you already know that I love leopard more than anyone ever should, let’s chat about why those teeny tiny squares are so chic right about now.
So gingham makes you look like you’re having a 60’s disco party, but still like you know what fashion is. The pattern is fun, can be dressed up or down, looks cute mixed with other patterns (ESPECIALLY LEOPARD), and it’s something that only the brave truly embrace. Also, if you go for the black & white vibe, it kinda makes you look like an old man out golfing with his mates, but in a good way??
Needless to say, check check check it out. 🙂
Have a wonderful Wednesday and much love to you all. <3
