Wow it is already mid November. I feel like this year is just flying by. Since Thanksgiving is coming up I wanted to share some of my favorite outfits for the holiday. I did also rounded up some dresses that I am loving that would be perfect for Thanksgiving. Also this navy jacket looks fun for the holiday!
Bow dress, velvet dress, plaid dress, pink dress, knit dress, black dress (also this Reformation dress is beautiful!)
Outfit #1: The Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific collection has a great collection for holiday pieces. I love all the plaids, bows and fun prints.
Dress Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific (on sale right now), boots Tory Burch (similar, Tory Burch will release another similar style next year), sunglasses Karen Walker
Outfit #2: It is kind of hard to see but this navy plaid dress is a great thanksgiving option. I am really into belting dresses right now so I added one here and some fun tights and brown boots.
Dress last year Zara (similar), belt Madewell, blazer Leith, tights Commando, boots Sam Edelman, bag Kate Spade
Outfit #3: This was my Thanksgiving outfit last year and I still love it and would wear it again. Clearly plaid is a go-to for this time of year for me.
Skirt J. Crew Factory, sweater last year Halogen x Atlantic Pacific (similar), scarf vintage Hermés, boots similar
Thanks for reading and have a great Tuesday!
Newport is one of the most picturesque and classic towns in all of Rhode Island. I mention in an earlier post our day trip to Newport’s Bowen’s Warf but I wanted to dedicate a whole post to what we did and what there is to do in Newport since it is such an amazing place that often finds its way onto many travel bucket lists. I have been multiple times before, mostly to visit the mansions and enjoy the beautiful flower shows. This time my sister and I left in the morning and shopped the boutique’s on the warf. We stopped for lunch at Gary’s Handy Lunch which was is cheap and quick diner food that was great for us since we had to meet our cousin shortly after. However, the dining opportunities are definitely ones to take advantage of here. The seafood is incredible and there are so many seaside views, it can definitely get expensive though. I would save for a few really nice delicious meals and find the cheaper places or grocery shop for the rest.
We found some great shops including the KJP store on Bowen’s Warf, Island Outfitters, Coast to Country and Vintage to Vogue. There are so many other great shops and prices definitely vary so check it out if you see something you like (you never know). Some shops like KJP have such beautiful decorations that it is fun to just have a look around and get some inspiration.
In the later afternoon we met up with Aiden and his family to do the Cliff Walk along the coast. It is beautiful because you get the amazing ocean views with gorgeous mansions on the other side. I highly recommend this and other than parking it is completely free (parking isn’t too bad). Along those same lines, visiting any of the mansions is a great experience. The Breakers is the most famous and has a great walk through tour available. I have done several in the past and I learned some interesting history for sure.
There are definitely many other things to do if you are doing a longer stay (which I highly recommend). There are sailing tours and boat rides along with many other fun water activities. Hitting the beach is also a must if you are there for a few days, it is beautiful!
