thanksgiving weekend

Flor-ever Thankful

There’s something about the holidays that make me feel a little mushy inside, I don’t know if it’s the decorations, the songs, the people, -what I do know is we are all about to sparkle into the new year.  So many party looks from so many different brands making it hard to choose just one. BUT I’m going to find a way to control the impulse.  I’ve decided for all holiday parties (up until Christmas that is) -I will rework what I have in my closet. Whether if it’s a different shoe, accessory or even a hairstyle, anything can instantly change the vibe of your look.

This thanksgiving morning was a cold one, but I managed to keep it together wearing my FFF (favorite faux fur) to keep me warm; a cropped wool sweater, my 10 year old Free People flares and my can’t stop, won’t stop wearing platform shoes. I wanted to go for a boho vibe and blend in with the Fall foliage so my main attraction were the pants and its floral print. The blush cropped sweater complimented well with them. The platforms definitely added that spunk in my step.

Well ladies (and gentlemen) there’s nothing wrong with going extra this holiday season or even with your everyday outfits. Throw on your (faux) fur, your sunglasses and walk into your family’s living room like yes I’m here and I’m fabulous. And when they ask you what’s in your velvet pouch, tell them nothing, it gave your outfit the million dollar touch. You too should feel like a million bucks! :p

Back to cooler temperatures, I toughed it out in my biker jacket, studded pumps, torn skinny jeans and made it work appropriate with a button up shirt to the top and a bright red lip for some exxxtra sexy. It’s Black Friday I know many of you are out there toughin’ it out at your favorite stores. Hope you all get what’s on your buying list!

Happy Shopping Day!
