striped turkey | a personal take on holiday styling

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
(I just noticed my hair is slightly red, no I have never dyed my hair, and no I did not edit any of these photos).

I hope everyone is having a very nice turkey day. Either busy at gatherings or just at home with just family. As promised, here is a more toned down holiday outfit. Very simple and easy to put together.
I styled a sweater that had a very Thanksgiving color-scheme with a normal dark blue button up inside. Then, because it is not very chilly here in southern California on this Thanksgiving, I decided to wear a skirt. If it gets chillier later, then I would put on some sheer black tights. Below (not pictured) I just had normal black flats on, that had a little bit of silver rings and bells on them for the holiday look.

This is mainly a Thanksgiving look so I didn't wear any makeup because I don't think that Thanksgiving is the occasion to go all shimmery sparkly and fabulous. (Save it for New Year's and Christmas). Thanksgiving is a day to be thankful for the things you have, and to spend it with the ones closets to you. I did not think that attention grabbing make up would be appropriate. But for slight makeup application I would suggest a neutral light bronze shadow such as Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadow in R.S.V.P or Birthday Suit, a coat or two of mascara, and then eye liner. Of course, a strawberry red lipstick wouldn't hurt either. Nails, could be champagne pink shimmer or a dark cherry red.
