For years, I never wore jeans. There was something about how simple they were and how gosh-darn uncomfortable they are that made me chuck mine out and not touch denim for like three or four years. I know it’s weird, but leggings, stretchies, and colored pants were not only more comfortable, but more fun to wear. This year, I broke my jeans fast and bought myself good-quality Levi’s that are perfect for everyday, for nice occasions, and are stretchy enough to wear all day at work. Score!
Today I have an inspired-by Thanksgiving outfit built from old and new pieces in my wardrobe. This perfect Thanksgiving outfit is compiled almost exclusively of items that are years old. I’ve included some links below if you want to duplicate this Thanksgiving outfit! The emphasis here is on combining unusual colors to create something seasonal and classic!
I’ve worn this dress a couple times in the past two or three years; I love the silhouette and the design, but the best part is the colors: navy blue and a spring orange are unusual colors to combine, but they work perfectly together!
These American Apparel riding pants are my favorite because when I wear them to dinner they stretch very comfortably. I wore these on Fat Tuesday to celebrate gluttony at one of my favorite places, the Bronx Alehouse. They afforded lots of stretch to accommodate fried food and beer, plus they’re also cute and extremely versatile. My favorite thing to wear is probably a good pair of stretchy black pants. Who needs jeans? Not I. I wore them with a simple and artfully wrinkled (artfully because I didn’t iron it) white blouse. Also pictured are my favorite shoes, by Jeffrey Campbell.
