If you're like me, you've got a lot of running around to do today before your city shuts down for the Thanksgiving holiday. Juggling the demand to be comfortable, feel warm, and stay true to personal style on days like today is not always easy. What I do is rely on an effortless combination of chic wardrobe basics—a pair of broken-in jeans, a cozy pullover sweater, a fresh scarf, a crossbody bag, and flats.
Need a gift for a coworker? Want to impress the host of a party you're attending? Looking for chic holiday finds for yourself? This post has you covered. I've rounded up some of the items I like to gift year after year. From the highly anticipated makeup collaboration between Prabal Gurung and Mac to a monogram mug that everyone wants to sip from, this gift guide has a little something for all.
A tailored shirt dress is such a wardrobe staple. Talk about versatile! The right shirt dress can take you from desk to dinner to weekend fun by simply switching accessories. The Plenty by Tracy Reese printed shirt dress, now on sale for $44 (orig. $148), is the ideal dress. It has a flattering feminine silhouette, a punchy illustrated print, and a classic point collar.
I fell in love with the House of Harlow brand when I received a few pieces as part of my collaboration with Rocksbox. I wear my pair of White Sand Sunburst earrings, a yellow gold plated stud with a cracked leather inlay, often because they are so edgy and sophisticated. The earrings also pair well with just about everything.
My Thanksgiving Day style is always quite laid-back. You can see my ideal look in the first Free-Style Friday Post. By the way, have you entered to win a $25 Gordmans gift card yet? Anyway, if I had to get dressed up for the holiday, I would probably wear something like today's featured look.
