Thanksgiving in a Cowl Neck & 50 Things I’m Thankful For

     Happy Thanksgiving y’all!  I hope you’re spending the day eating until you’re sick with those that you love the most.  I love Thanksgiving so much, between getting a few days off school and all the pie, what’s not to love?  Today I’m sharing my outfit from the “Friendsgiving” that I hosted a couple days ago, because I just think this look is so perfect for the Thanksgiving holiday.  In this post I’m also sharing fifty things I’m thankful for, just like I did in my Thanksgiving post last year!  Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Outfit

    I got this caramel-brown cowl neck from Old Navy last year, and as much as I love the neckline and color, it’s actually kind of an awkward length.  I challenged myself to style it for Thanksgiving because I think the color just screams fall.  I decided to tuck the sweater into a denim skirt.  I love this skirt because it buttons down the side as opposed to the typical front buttons and I actually cut the hemline myself to give it a more distressed look.  As for shoes, I chose a fun pair of colorful multi textile TOMS booties.  Since the booties are already so colorful, I kept my jewelry simple with my ivory pearl Kendra Scott pieces and some simple white and gold bracelets.

The cuff bracelet from Cuffed by Nano and beaded bracelets from Sashka Co. featured in this post were sent to me in exchange for a feature in my blog.  However, all opinions are honest and my own.  I don’t feature products I don’t truly love!
