What to Wear for Thanksgiving: Red Ruffles and Tassel Earrings

Happy Saturday. I sure hope you have plans to enjoy your day. I worked my bottom off this week at school to make sure that I left on Friday prepared for our two days of school next week as well as the full week following the break. I did that so that this weekend could be completely devoted to stretching my mind creatively and working to come up with wonderful and worthwhile content for y'all in the coming weeks. While most people wouldn't consider this to be a fun weekend activity it pretty much sums up what I want to be doing so that this coming week I am able to enjoy the little vacation I'll have at home. 

I've started to think about what to take home for Thanksgiving (more on that soon) and constantly have to remind myself to actually check what the weather is going to be like in Alabama. I've been known to head home from Greenville with pieces that are suitable for our fall weather but a little too hot for what I should be wearing at home. In a hope to not make that same mistake I am sure that I'll be bringing home some blouses that are easy to throw on with jeans but still look cute for Fall. Most of my closet in the fall and winter is made up of white and grey, and I've been trying to make a point of adding in some pretty pops of color. Red is a color I have very little of in my closet (aside from 3 red cocktail dresses, because that's so necessary). When I spotted this bell sleeve ruffle number on Nordstrom's site last month I knew I needed to give it a try. 

When I arrived I realized it was closer to a wine color (or "garnet" if you live anywhere remotely close to people who are fans of the University of South Carolina). The color definitely makes it more versatile to be dressed up or down, and I've worn this both out on the weekends and with pants to work without any sort of hesitation. If this isn't your color however, it comes in navy as well! Fun sleeves seem to be the style of the season and I can't complain as I love the looser fit. If you're still searching for what to wear for Thanksgiving this top paired with my favorite tassel earrings make for a more dressed up casual ensemble. Paired with some dark wash denim and my favorite booties (seriously can't stop wearing these) it almost seems too easy to be true. When preparing for the holidays can come with stress over the details fortunately your outfit decision won't contribute to that.
