Turkey-Friendly Fashion…

Happy Thanksgiving!

With the big feast brewing in the oven, I felt it only appropriate to discuss some Turkey-friendly fashion options for tonight’s festivities. Here are a few things to keep in mind when planning for tonight:

1. Make sure and leave some room to grow! Though it may look super cute in the mirror around 3pm, the post-stuffing distention will be anything but pleasant in that fitted cashmere top come 9pm. Opt for something adjustable: a belted flowy blouse paired with a bright cardigan, or a loose tunic top over leggings. Check out this Dancing Blooms Cardi, $128, available at Anthropologie.com.

2. Layer. You might feel a bit warm while eating that hot stuffing and pumpkin pie, but once digestion starts (about 20-30 minutes after eating), blood flow will rush from your extremities to your gut, causing you to get pretty chilly. Laying is a great way to combat this.

3. Add some sparkle! Please don’t parade around like a disco ball, but adding a little bit of flair to your fashion is especially encouraged during the holidays. I suggest picking one ornate item and then building your outfit around that. Try this gorgeous pair of Pyrite Teardrop Earrings by Alexis Bittar, $235, available at NeimanMarcus.com with matching Crystal Encrusted Gold Pyrite Ring (pictured above), $275, AlexisBittar.com; or this Sequin Jacket, $79.50, available at VictoriasSecret.com.

Most importantly, have a wonderful time with family, friends and loved ones. After all, if you can’t give thanks for the people around you, this entire holiday is a little pointless 🙂 HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
