Is there any one out these who doesn't love stripes? Seriously, they are the best pattern around: coming in every color combo, mixing with other prints perfectly and looking flattering on everyone. Today I'm pairing my horizontal striped sweater with some fun metallic accessories for a little bit of glamour.

I decided to add a bit of masculinity and unexpectedness by pairing these pants & sweater with loafers instead of ballet flats or booties.  J picked out these loafers for me years ago at the Coach outlet and I have never been able to part with them. I was lucky to find them in the back of my closet because loafers. are. back.

To tie the look together, I finished off this outfit with a pair of statement earrings. I rotate the same few dainty pieces of jewelry so it was fun to switch it up with these dangling earrings from Banana Republic. I always avoid buying oversize earrings because of how heavy they get and how they pull on my earlobes but these are backed with leather making them shockingly light weight and wearable for hours on end.

Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving filled with family & lots of good food!

PS. A sweater and pants with some metallic or sparkling accessories would make a great outfit for tomorrow's festivities.
