The Giving of the Thanks


Whoa. It’s been well over a month since my last post.
So. I am wayyyy behind, since I am about to post my Thanksgiving outfit, and Christmas is less than a week a way (IT’S LESS THAN A WEEK WHAT ON EARTH). But don’t be alarmed, since you SO obviously were, there is a flurry of posts coming your way (probably). I have my outfit for Christmas planned and it will be on here, and I also have the pictures already from an outfit I wore before school got out. I apologize that it’s been so long, but with finals, during which I got violently sick and had to reschedule a test, then my Nana being sick and briefly in the hospital (she’s better now!), and a flurry of Christmas preparation, all belated, I have been really busy and very uninspired to bestir myself to post. Also, the pictures I have are not the best and again bear the marks of my poor attempts at editing, so I’m sorry for that as well! I’m also very disappointed, because I had the BEST dress picked out to wear to my school’s fall semester graduation that would have been perfect for the blog, but I was sadly struck ill, as I mentioned.
Now, all excuses and explanations aside, here is the outfit I wore for Thanksgiving:

thanksgiving edit 1Pink satin and black lace top: Daisy Exchange, $8
Black skinny jeans: Forever 21, $10.50
Black flower headband: Cato, Christmas gift but I know it was only like $3
Black boots: Ross, $25
Outfit total without boots: $21.50
Outfit total with boots: $46.50

We ate Thanksgiving dinner at my dad’s niece’s house, an absolutely gorgeous two-story house that’s a hundred years old. There were tons of people there besides just my family, and I actually didn’t know most of them! I really wanted to look very nice without being too overdressed, and I think this outfit strikes a great balance of dressy but not formal.
Now, I do apologize because I actually wore alternate shoes earlier in the day that would have kept this under $25, but we somehow didn’t manage to get a picture. I hope that you all won’t count it as cheating if I total outfits without these boots, as I explained in my post after I bought them. I just think that they represent a good bargain in and of themselves at only $25. And even with my non-stop wearage of them, they still are holding up perfectly.
As for my shirt, I am in love with it. I think it looks expensive and trendy, and I’ve seen similar shirts to it on tons of models, etc. I don’t necessarily think this color is the most flattering to my coloring, but I loved the shirt so much I just honey badgered it and didn’t care at all.
Then, of course, we have my staple black skinny jeans and my darling boots. I wish you could see my headband a little closer because I really adore it. We somehow didn’t get a picture of it either, but that’s probably because holidays are always chaos for the Rowe family. Here’s a slightly better view:

Note my lovely sister, whose outfit was actually also very cute and cheaper than mine! I’m hoping to get her on here sometime to do a guest post, or at least a guest outfit. And finally, to round out my Thanksgiving post, the thing I am most thankful for- my family.

I am thankful my loved ones are safe with me. Some things, there’s simply no words for, and yet I feel I would be insensitive and remiss not to at least mention what happened. I only must say that the world is crying for them all, myself included, and my heart is broken. In light of that, I am posting what I feel is a much more appropriate pin than a Peeta one:
ctNever forget.

Now, especially, I wish you all pax,
