Happy Thanksgiving week! Give a warm welcome back to J as he makes an appearance in today's post. We are excited to showcase some Thanksgiving styling tips and outfit ideas today, thanks to a few pieces from our latest Stitch Fixes.
1. Wear fall colors. There is no time better than Thanksgiving to pull out your best fall outfit and really embrace fall shades. I did an entire post on my favorite fall shades a few weeks back. The cliff's notes version: If it's a shade that the leaves are, it's probably pretty great for the fall. Add shades like rust, mustard, olive and burgundy into your look.
2. Dress up your everyday pieces. None of these pieces are overly dressy, however they are slight upgrades from what either of us might wear on a typical day. Rather than wearing jeans and a tee, J chose to style his mustard chino pants and a woven button down. He still felt comfortable but he looks way more put together for a family occasion. I opted for white jeans over typical blue denim for a more crisp look. A berry lip by Giorgio Armani (my new favorite lip color) finished off my look.
3. Play with textures. There's no better way to add interest to an outfit than by mixing up your colors & textures. I decided to pair a faux fur vest over my sweater and accessorize with a suede clutch and leather boots. Simple layers and the addition of some differing materials make basics much more interesting.
My Outfit: Sweater: Pixley Nilla Button Back Sweater c/o Stitch Fix | Pants: DL1961 c/o Shopbop | Boots: Jessica Simpson (so old, these were one of my very first pair of heels - still love them! similar pair here) | Vest: similar | Clutch: Street Level Abri Suede Envelope Clutch c/o Stitch Fix | Lip: c/o Giorgio Armani (shade 201)

What are your Thanksgiving plans? My family goes to my grandma's house in NJ where we spend the day with my mom's side of the family. It's one of my favorite days of the year :)
