I am back again with my What I Wore This Week Series! This past week was the week of Thanksgiving, so the beginning of the week was nice and relaxed cozy outfits for work and then end is more fun, festive looks to celebrate the holidays! I didn’t include the weekend on this one because we went to Philadelphia and I have a blog post coming that features all those outfits, plus what we did. Be on the look out for that post this Thursday and keep on reading to see what I wore this week!
Monday again! Similar to last week, I was dealing with a horrible headache from the weekend that just won’t quit so I wanted to be really comfy today. I opted for this super cozy sweater and jeans with my new favorite loafers. I also added socks because my ankles are always cold standing on the train platform in the morning. I’m unsure if I love the socks or hate them and I genuinely think that is the appeal of them. One thing that I really love about myself is it’s not often that I feel self-conscious about what I’m wearing.
This Tuesday morning, I woke up feeling a little tired and a little bit like I didn’t want to wear my cute outfit. I was feeling just slightly off this morning. However, I decided to just push through and wear my cute outfit that I planned the night before and I am so happy I did! It was seriously so cute. I wore basically all green and my new green plaid coat that I’m obsessed with and it was such a ~lewk~. I also feel like it made me feel much more productive. Does anyone else feel like that? Sometimes when I wear an outfit that I feel really good about, I truly feel like I can conquer anything.
Thank goodness for a half day! Since it was the last day of work just before a holiday, I wanted to be comfy and cozy so I could relax and feel productive. My wonderful boyfriend got me this sweatshirt from his job earlier this week, so I decided to throw that on with a pair of jeans and some mule loafers for the ultimate comfy-but-still-put-together outfit. I also didn’t want to feel too sloppy, so I decided to wear my big gold hoops to feel more put together. I have to be honest, I am really into jewelry lately and I think I want to really invest in some nice every day gold necklaces, earrings, rings and probably also bracelets but no guarantees on that one. I think it’s such a good way to dress up an outfit. A few weeks ago, @sincerelyjules posted a photo of her wearing a bathing suit, I think, but with a ton of jewelry and I literally said “Wow that’s a cute outfit” before I realized it was a bathing suit. Accessories make a huge difference!!
This day was Thanksgiving dinner at my boyfriend’s family’s house so my outfit is a little more dressy than normal but I still wanted to be comfortable. I got this skirt recently at Target to use for another blog post and I realized that I really like it! It was great to wear for a family dinner and tuck a sweater in also. On another note, the dinner was so yummy. Thanksgiving in my favorite holiday and it was so special to get to spend it with Andrew and his family. Definitely the best one yet!
