Day 25 in my 30 Days of Outfits Challenge: November 25.
I am always compelled to wear something in traditional “Fall colors” on this day. Every year, I don browns, oranges, and reds – though I rarely wear these colors otherwise.
I made the fringed neckpiece following …love, Maegan‘s DIY tutorial here. It’s one of the pieces that I love in theory but just haven’t worked into my outfits enough after making it. I layered it under a lovely enamel jewel necklace courtesy of Accessorize.com…another piece I love to look at but haven’t put it into regular rotation in my wardrobe. It’s such a statement piece I actually have some difficulty matching my outfit to it – since I usually decide on the outfit first, then the accessories second. (Does anyone else style their outfits like this or is it just me?)
Lately I’ve noticed a lot of editorials in magazines are styling the models with fur scarves slung over their shoulders rather than worn around their necks. This intrigued me as a new way to wear a fur scarf. So I pulled the removable faux fur collar off a coat I have and attached it over my shoulder with safety pins. (Hub made a crack about Neanderthals when he saw this.)
For the last couple years, I’ve always worn this plaid skirt on this day – it’s super-warm, and I love its swingy shape (and the fact that I bought it over 10 years ago in Japan and it still fits wonderfully…in fact, it’s a little big around the waist for me now).
I wore the orange henley shirt in my 30 Days of Outfits Challenge before here and the boots here…but since it’s Thanksgiving I hope you will forgive…? (Full disclosure: I did remove all the necklaces and fur while I was cooking the meal:-)
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
