Thanksgiving outfit ideas

Hello my lovelies,

Since I moved to the States, there is a holiday, that we didn’t have it back home, but I totally love it… and that is Thanksgiving. Simply because it means just quality time spent with your family. It is not about presents, on this day, the best present that you can give or get it’s just being with the ones that you love the most.

I know that this time can also be a little bit stressful, with all the cooking and baking (unfortunately I can’t help you with that), but I got your back setting your outfit for the day.

Even though we spend time surrounded by our family or closest friends, it’s a holiday so I wouldn’t recommend showing up in sweatpants and sneakers.

I put together 3 different outfits, so you can choose what will fit you best.

Outfit no. 1

When I created this outfit, I thought that it would be just perfect for a family reunion dinner. It is casual but super chic and what I like the most is that is very comfortable if you want to play in the leaves or throw a ball in the backyard with the kids.

Sweater: H&M/ Jeans: Levi’s/ Hat: Lucky Brand/ Boots: Steve Madden/ Necklace & Bag: Zara

Outfit no.2

For the second outfit, I was thinking what if I need to go, at a Thanksgiving   dinner where I’m going to meet my boyfriend’s family for the first time. Well girl, that’s stressful… what am I supposed to wear? So I decided to go for a girly girl look, feminine but cute. That’s why I chose the floral skirt that I decided to pair it with a simple black turtle neck (no cleavage needed, trust me), you’re a good girl and their son is in good hands. Don’t choose a skirt that is too short, because grandma will be there too 😉 Be girlie, feminine, but decent and the most important: be you, let them know the real you and they’ll love you.

Turtle neck: H&M/ Skirt: Bershka/ Faux fur vest: Bershka/ OTK Boots: Aldo, Bag: Ross

Outfit no. 3

For this look, I pictured a dinner with my closest friends. It is a casual elegant look, even if I chose a pair of black skinny jeans, I kept it pretty classy with my shirt. The jacket it is for sure the star of the show and the rest of the outfit being black is popping out for  sure.

Textured jacket: Tularosa/ Jeans: Hudson/ Shirt: COS/ Shoes: ZAra/ Bag: Karl Lagerfeld

 

whatever you choose to wear, keep your tops a little loose, so you have room for all that delicious turkey, baby.

Have a great time with your families and Happy Thanksgiving!

XoXo, OD!

 

How to style: pleated midi leather skirt

Hello lovelies,

If there is an item, that you definitely need to have it ready for the fall season is the pleated midi leather skirt.

I wanna start by telling you, that with this particular item,  you have to pay a little more attention to your height, when you choose your midi skirt length.

A midi skirt can be anywhere from your knee to your calf, but if you are petite, you should choose a midi skirt that will sit above your mid-calf and wear it with high-heels, so you will give the impression of longer legs. If you are tall, my dear, you are lucky because you can wear any length for your midi skirt.

Styling a midi skirt is not that easy, even if it’s such a versatile piece and allows you to create so many different looks, you have to pay attention to the volume that you create. You don’t wanna look like you have been swallowed up by a big ball of fabric. Just know your body and play with proportions.

For today’s post a styled a pleated midi leather skirt in two, totally different ways: for the first styling option, I chose to go with a more of an edgy look, and in the second one, a more feminine, girly-girl look with a twist.

How to wear blazer and denim shorts

Hello my lovelies,

If you are familiar with my blog, you know that for me fashion and style means combining pieces that we wouldn’t normally wear them together. This was also the main idea behind this outfit: you would not necessarily mix a pair of denim shorts, which are totally casual, with an elegant black blazer.

It is a street style outfit that is really appealing and will make you look fabulous, without trying too much.

What I like a lot about this look is that you can mix almost any shoes with it: high heels to rock your girls night out, sneakers, if you have to run some errands around the city, and even flats for an end of summer romantic walk with your love.

Being mid September, add a pair of combat boots and make it the perfect summer to fall transition outfit.

It is one of my favorite looks and I think that makes you look put together with items, that you have for sure in your dressing.
