How The Colors Of Thanksgiving Inspired My Outfit
I am lucky that my immediate family all live in the same city as us. This makes everything a lot easier for get togethers this time of year as we don’t have to travel very far to enjoy the holiday celebrations. Having said that, unfortunately my husband’s family all live in England and we hardly get to spend any of the holidays with them. What can you do…I guess it’s better to at least have one side of the family nearby and we can Skype the rest.
Every year me and my siblings divide the holidays among ourselves, so each holiday is celebrated at a different house. Somehow we always get Thanksgiving, which I think has a lot to do with the delicious roast turkey and traditional dishes that my husband makes. It is one of his specialties that I thankfully leave to him as I have never attempted nor do I wish to roast a turkey. Instead I make a roast tri-tip and the other tasty side dishes, so don’t worry there is plenty of work for me to do as well. We both enjoy doing the Thanksgiving cooking and entertaining as it is one of our favorite holidays besides Christmas to all get together. We love the meaning behind this holiday and enjoy the celebration of being thankful for everything we have in our lives with family, friends and loved ones.
I love the earthy and warm colors of fall and the Thanksgiving season. Rusts, oranges, yellows, greens and browns are some of my favorite colors. As I start decorating the house more in these colors and preparing for the holiday, I also start wearing these colors more. They are after all true fall colors. Last weekend when we were invited to a holiday dinner at a friend’s house, so I decided to wear my favorite Vivian Tam fall sweater jacket that I bought couple of years ago. At first when you look at it, you might think it is a faux fur jacket but it is really a shaggy knitted sweater jacket where the yarns are hanging out to create a shaggy look. I paired it here with my Uniqlo ripped denim skirt which I bought last week. I was pleasantly surprised with this find, since I only buy basics from Uniqlo. Add on some fall colored jewelry and my brown gladiator sandals, which can pass as boots in Los Angeles since its still in the 70’s, and I was good to go.
I think of you all as my friends and want to wish you all a very Happy & safe Thanksgiving holiday this week with all of your family, friends and loved ones and thank you for supporting me through my Jacket Society Blog, It means so much to me to share my love of women’s fashion and style with you and your comments and support mean so much.
