It is Thanksgiving week and we are counting down the days until we're officially on holiday! And, of course, we decided the color of the week should be inspired by all the brown tones that really emulate the season. When you think of the color brown, it doesn't really get people too excited. Even the word "brown" kind of lacks enthusiasm lol. However, when you start thinking about all of the things that are that color (fallen leaves, wood in a fire, a warm cup of coffee) you start realizing that this earthy tone exudes a lot of warmth... AND distinct character! Please refer to my super geeky mood board I made for these references :)
Don't these images just make you so happy??
So in honor of the color of the week, we decided to choose 5 dresses to wear for Thanksgiving and we provided suggestions based on your personality. There's a little something for everyone!
1. "I WANT TO EAT ALL DAY"
This ruffled A-line dress is also a gem for those of us (me) who loooooove to eat multiple servings on Thanksgiving. First off, it's an empire waist and has gathering underneath. Why is this so key for Turkey Day? Well, there's plenty of space for you to eat and your belly has room to grow ;) Also, with a cute pair of boots, it is a great neutral piece to add to your fall closet.
2. "I WANT TO BE COZY AND TAKE MULTIPLE NAPS"
Nothing says 'warm and cozy' like a soft, cable knit sweater dress. Again, there's no waist so we've got plenty of tummy room and you can easily wear this with or without leggings/tights. I particularly love it because you can easily dress this up or down.
3. "I WANT TO DRINK AND DANCE THE DAY AWAY"
Velvety and totally flirty, the Melany Dress from Reformation is perfect for the sultry gals who just wanna have fun! It's triangle top hugs the girls much like a bikini top and the smock back helps to keep the lines clean and tight. It's a super playful option with a splash of luxury.
4. I WANT TO GET DOWN TO BUSINESS (EVEN THOUGH I'M ON HOLIDAY)
This Warehouse shirt dress has vintage vibes written all over it and the top pockets are reminiscent of a uniform work shirt. Combined, it is a look that gets down to business! If you're a #bosslady ready to take over the dinner plans this might be the look for you.
5. "I WANT TO STAND OUT IN THE FAMILY PHOTOS"
OOhhhhh leopard print, you saucy thing! If you haven't noticed at the stores, this trend is EVERYWHERE, but Connie and I agree that not all leopard are created equal. This silk jersey wrap dress from DVF is a favorite of mine because it's not as obvious that it's an animal print as opposed to the usual light yellow version. I also love the cinched waist, which accentuates the curves. This is a fun number for those who want to turn heads at the Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving party. It's also on sale right now!
What's your personality? We'd love to know!
