Thanksgiving Day Semi-Formal Outfit

img_4535 img_4536 img_4537  img_4540img_4539Good Morning loves!


It’s back to Monday and let me just say I am envious of you that get to have the whole week of Thanksgiving off.  Or those who are stay at home workers DEFINITELY JEALOUS!  Nonetheless I am very excited it’s officially Thanksgiving week! I hope everyone had awesome weekend and is ready to get right into the holidays because I know I am! (Everyone else how knows me also knows I am). I am ready to eat all the turkey and pie that my stomach can handle.  Also I’m very excited to go Black Friday shopping and of course Cyber Monday shopping (which I will also have a whole guide to coming soon!)

So I’m sure many of you have Thanksgiving potlucks coming up or ‘Friendsgiving.’  (I actually have a potluck at work today!) Maybe a huge family party or even a small intimate gathering with your loved ones but regardless one thing is for sure.  We must all dress our parts!  Now they’re a few who just wear their comfiest clothes because again if you’re with family they should love you no matter what you’re wearing!  (Even if it’s the PJ’s from the morning because you were too busy watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade and dipping your fingers into the everything… oops!)  But then they’re some who need to wear their best and I have something just for you! Don’t worry for those who keep it a bit more casual this might work out for you too! But I will also be posting another outfit for my casual peeps.

This look is all about our current trend… velvet.  Guys if you haven’t seen it or gotten into it let me tell you something.  I’M OBSESSED! It looks so good with EVERYTHING!  I’ve been trying to pick up a couple of pieces here and there but one thing I knew I wanted was a velvet dress.  When I found this one I snatched it before I lost it!  I have thought of so many different ways to dress this up but I thought I would keep it simple (we already have to worry about bringing desserts and sides jeez) and add it with a leather jacket and some suede booties.

For accessories I actually realized I have no black clutches.  I MEAN NONE! (WHAT THE!?!?!)  Which means I will now have a thousand because I’m just that type of person to over buy when I don’t have something (raise your hand if is you!).  So I paired it with this sparkling gold clutch which was nice because it went with the necklace that I received from Rocksbox.  I also added the fun sparkly earrings that Rocksbox sent me.

I think this outfit is perfect for those going to dressy dinner parties or even dressy family events! The dress is so now and of course with the right accessories you can’t go wrong! I’ll link many similar choices down below.  Let me know what you guys think of the outfit and what you will be wearing? Or if you are going to just wear your sweats and a t-shirt and call it day that’s cool too!  I hope you guys have an awesome Monday!
