Such a day is Thanksgiving, a day in which my ridiculously ample blessings require generous gratitude from my person. And in order to convey my bountiful internal thanks, I need to make full use of articulate outer fittings. Below is a step by step recipe should you have appreciation to express as well.
Ingredient 1: Simple, sophisticated basics
Like butter and salt, a fine underpinning and a clean-lined knee length skirt are necessities for every sartorial pantry. Appropriate foundaions for every age, occasion, and season.
These ModBod basics are priced affordably enough that one can procure them in multiple colors. The stretch in both ensure a flattering fit and keep shy body ranges (shoulders & knees) out of view.
Ingredient 2: An ambrosial blouse
Something that speaks of nutmeg and cinnamon. Earthy, warm, and redolent. I chose a delicate tie-neck silk, just enough to add interest but not so much that it overwhelms. Procurement Point:
(This illustrated model is no longer available, but these alternatives are)
ModBod Anna Ruffle Neck Top
Victoria’s Secret Silk Georgette Tie-Front Floral Blouse
Step 3: A textured jacket
With a feminine nod at Sherlock Holmes, this nubby wool cape makes cozy chic.
Step 4: Apply Accessories
You can see a small smattering of my accessory choices photographed above, but my full dream list is available at Sensibly Styled.
Felicitous Wishes for a Jubilant Thanksgiving!
