Last weekend, I once again tried nude lipstick and proved to myself, that I need more color on my mouth. I love the sophisticated look of a nude lip but the older I get, the softer my coloring becomes so nude lips wash me out. I simply look much healthier with a brighter color on my lips so I’ll happily go back to my new favorite Rosewater pink and perhaps dabble with some soft raspberry for the holidays. Will you be wearing red?
Anywho…today I have an outfit for you that will be on heavy repeat for me and would be great for Thanksgiving Day. Let’s start at the top…this gorgeous scarf! I never used to enjoy wearing plaid, but now that I’ve broken the ice so to speak, I am loving it in everything!
Perhaps my secret desire to live in a rustic cabin by a lake is influencing me, but plaid just feels perfect for this time of year. Sheesh…I look at this photo and my hand twitches to add some brighter lipstick. I like to wear plaid in small doses but in this pretty color combo…I could wear it head to toe.
My funnel neck tunic sweater is the kind I normally wear over skinny jeans or my favorite jeggings. It’s got a straight boxy cut yet I’m loving the proportion with these barely bootcut jeans. I know most of you are faithful to your skinny jeans and I love mine too, but a small bootcut allows you to pop your pant leg over your boot, thereby elongating your leg.

Some boot cut jeans are closer to flares but these are closer to a straight leg. They’re slim through the leg until just below the knee where they flare out slightly. I find this shape so versatile, I now have this jean style in three different washes.
This scarf is so vibrant, I simply added my Dean Davidson Labradorite earrings and called my outfit done…other than brighter lipstick.
Do you reach for plaid this time of year?
What are your plans for Thanksgiving?
