Fall

Last week I was in Target and spotted these adorable booties. I walked out of the store without them, but I’ve spent the last four to six days creating outfits in my head to justify going back this weekend and buying a pair. As if a $29.99 purchase requires so much consideration; I’ve spent less time pulling the trigger on a $22 tube of lipgloss.
I took my ideas to Polyvore (the second largest time vortex, after Pinterest) and put together a little something for Thanksgiving with the family. Colorful cords and/or denim has been on my shopping list since the start of the season, and these Lauren Conrad skinny cords are the perfect color for fall. Added bonus: corduroy stretches nicely, a requirement for holiday gluttony. I added a pretty feminine blouse  — with extra flounce and flowiness — and topped it with a denim vest to keep things casual. {I’ve been on a hunt for an inexpensive secondhand denim jacket to turn into a vest, but no luck so far!} Garnished with simple accessories in autumn tones, and it’s my ideal head-to-toe for a day of family, food, and football!
What will you wear for the holiday?

    I just got those booties but in black. Love them! A must have :-) I am also a bargain hunter and almost never buy stuff full price, but I made an exception :-)

    Perfect Thanksgiving outfit! You should totally buy those boots, by the way.

    Psh, I have no idea what I’ll wear for Thanksgiving. I’m too busy trying to decide what to make for my first Thanksgiving as a vegetarian!
