When I think of a good outfit to go hang with my girlfriends, I usually grab a skirt and heels. I don’t know why. I believe those two components just makes an outfit fun and feminine. I do like how the sequins of the shirt sparkle and shine. The sweater is very light weight and comfy. However, it’s very thin and the knit does catch on zippers (like the Juicy Couture skirt). I was able to straighten the knit out so no harm done. It’s getting really chilly in Houston, so the scarf by itself would not do. I am waiting for my cape to come in so hopefully it’ll be warm enough with this outfit.
This is my oldest, Megan. She wanted to be in the pictures but I think she was getting sleepy (due to that mean glare from her face). She’s very fashionable at 3 yrs old. And she will veto what I wear. By the way, I purchase the Juicy Couture skirt from Shopbop.com for a higher price. I had missed that Net-a-Porter had a sale going on and had the skirt at $40 cheaper than shopbop.com. Also if you like the skirt, it is meant to be worn high up. If you like it lower to your hips, buy a size up. My skirt is size 6 and I like it. It’s thinly lined though.
I chose the scarf for it’s French Paisian look. The soft colors worn with a slight bow at the neck. I love Madewell clothing. I think it’s durable and feminine. The scarf was also purchased from Shopbop.com. I have been a shopbop.com customer for a while but it’s only recently that I started shopping there again. I love the 2 day shipping and easy returns. I will probably return the skirt though, since Net-a-Porter is offering deeper discounts.

I love this oufit. We had a Thanksgiving Lunch to go to with the whole family. I put together this outfit with in mind a holiday spirit. The bright poppy colored blouse paired with a shimmery sweater. The cords give the outit a more casual yet still polished look.
The J. Crew blouse is a staple in my closet because it can be dressed up or down. The down side of it is that it’s very thin (it thins in some places) and easily wrinkled. This Forever21 sweater is from their LOVE21 collection. Very soft and buttery to the touch, I love that it sparkles with metallic fibers woven through the sweater. The 3/4 length sleeve was perfect for today’s Thanksgiving weather. Very low 60’s, sun shine and a light breeze.
It was amazing to get together with my family. We had a blast and I loaded up on turkey. I think that’s it for my turkey day! Happy Thanksgiving!

With this outfit, I am entering my first Fashion contest hosted by Cute and Little. I love turtlenecks. I start pulling out all my turtlenecks as soon as Fall starts. I just can’t wait to wear my winter clothes. It doesn’t get too cold in Houston, unfortunately. I am pretty sure I get funny looks from people because I will wear a sweater when it’s 70 degrees outside. I just love cooler weather.
J. Crew fashions are to die for. They always have brights, brights! I got this turtleneck while J. Crew was having their 50% off all sale items. Thank goodness for that or I would not have gotten this turtleneck. The color is very pretty and feminine. I paired this top with a Floral Print scarf that just pops even more against the coral turtleneck. I didn’t know if I should have worn a lighter colored pants. The brown slacks didn’t show very well in the light. It looks more black in the picture.
I am going live outside my box and experiment more with brights. This challenge was pretty fun.
Thank you in advance!
