Dress - Nobody's Child
Tights - Chinese Laundry
Boots - Material Girl
Unlike most families, for my parents and me, Thanksgiving isn't a big deal. I'm a first-generation American, so the culture of having a big turkey dinner with your entire extended family isn't part of my family's culture. That doesn't mean we don't do anything for the holidays though.
My mom and aunts always got together, especially when my cousins and I were younger, to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for us. The gatherings eventually stopped, but my family still tries to get together a few people to make it a special dinner rather than just another Thursday night. This year, we were also celebrating my grandparents closing the deal on a house to move closer to us, so I wanted to dress up for the occasion with a dress that suited both autumn and a heavy dinner.
I went with my plaid Nobody's Child dress from last winter, black tights to battle the weather (we're not in California anymore...), and black ankle booties. To be honest, it's essentially the same look I wore last December when I went to Serendipity with one of my friends to get in the holiday spirit. This time around, I curled my hair with a NuMe wand for a dressier look, which I love, but don't do often because it takes a bit of time.
Though smaller than what other people may expect for Thanksgiving, I had a great holiday! Now, the days following were pretty good, too, though my bank account is hurting a bit... I may have made one or two Black Friday purchases, one including a pair of over-the-knee boots, a trend I blogged about last year, from Missguided that I'm so excited about! I'll be sure to share once they arrive in the mail!
And a shameless Snapchat selfie because I loved my makeup...
