Classic Black V Neck Sweater / Black Cashmere Scarf / Veronica Beard Monroe Cargo Leather Skirt / Ivanka Trump OKT Boots c/o / Saint Laurent Sac de Jour c/o

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away!  We have a lot between now and then with Grandparents Day at two schools and a birthday party for one of my girls so I’m definitely planning ahead on what to wear for Thanksgiving and each event coming up.  Having a chic and easy look is key when things get hectic.

This easy look will probably show up more than one of the events.  I’ve now purchased this sweater in several colors.  It is so soft and a go-to for me in the fall and winter.  It was time to replace a few of the sweaters I wear over and over and at $29 (currently 50% off sale!) it is a no-brainer.  Also, machine washable, it was part of my October Under $150 washable favorites post.

In the fall and winter, you’ll often find me with a scarf.  It not only adds a bit of luxury to a look but really keeps me warm! This leather skirt from my favorite designing duo, Veronica Beard, was a bit of a splurge but I’ve already worn it several times.  It is such amazing leather.  It is so classic that is a piece that will not go out of style. It also comes in a navy version which is right on trend!  I also love it with these boots and this sweater both are other great options for Thanksgiving.

I’m obsessed with these OTK boots, also seen in this post.  They are truly so comfortable and I really like this style more than I thought I would.  Yes, I’m a bit of a late adopter here…like these and these, I thought the style would come and go.  But I was wrong…Did I just say that?!?!  Ha!

I’ve curated a boutique below on other items that would be good for Thanksgiving whether you are a dressy bunch or very casual.  Either way, you’ll find something to wear to celebrate the holiday with friends and family.
