Thanksgiving is all about great food and great company, but it’s a delicate balance of being comfortable and still looking stylish. Not to mention the fact that I had plans to hit the outlet mall afterwards in 40-degree weather and rain!
The decision was hard, but here’s are the pieces I picked out and why:
- a forgiving pair of jeggings – to accomodate for the potential food baby
- a cable knit faux-fur zip up hoodie – to protect my ears from the cold!
- a pair of faux leather knee-high boots – faux leather ain’t scared of rain
- a thick military-style jacket — gotta layer up and stay on trend 🙂
And now I’m off to spend some quality time with the family and have my inaugural pot of shabu shabu for the year!
* Fit Notes:
Tulle Double Breasted Coat: Not recommended for petites as it was big all over. I had to hem the sleeves and add larger princess seams in the back as it was way too wide.
J. Brand 10″ Skinny Jeans: Too long for shorter petites (I need a 25″ inseam for skinnies) — hemmed 2″. Great fit otherwise!
[EDIT]: Since I received a few questions about the fit of these J. Brand Jeans, I thought it’d be helpful to include a picture of the backside. Note that I had to really increase the brightness of these pictures in order for the stitching to show up against the black fabric, so please excuse the quality of this last picture!
