Fall Fashion: Thanksgiving Outfits #2 + #3


Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I’m so excited to see my family and eat some delicious food. In preparation for the holiday, I wanted to share two more last minute outfit ideas with you. Hope you all feel inspired!

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration #2: Fringe Top

Like I said in my last post, I try to wear flowy and comfortable clothes for holiday dinners. Aren’t holidays all about being comfortable and happy? But that doesn’t mean style gets thrown completely out the window.

Tops with fringe on them are bohemian-chic, and usually very flowy. Even with an empire waist, like this one from Pink Ice, there is still plenty of room for food beneath that top. The knit and fringe details add visual appeal to your outfit. I would pair this shirt with a pair of basic black leggings, both for contrast and for the stretchy waistband. Throw on a pair of over the knee boots on top for a bit of polish and edge. I love a cognac-colored boot with a lace back detail to play off the more natural color of the knit top. I would also add a scarf and purse with similar blue hues to add a pop of color and detail to an otherwise bland outfit.

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration #2: Sweater Dress

One last option I’d like to share with you all is a sweater dress. They’re cozy and comfy, and something with a fit and flare silhouette is perfect for Thanksgiving. To keep your outfit from being just another dress look, add a collared shirt. This adds some polish and interest to the ensemble. For something with short sleeves, use a collared tank top. If your dress has longer sleeves, use a long sleeve collared shirt and roll up the cuffs. To keep this look fun, but still comfortable, finish off the outfit with a pair of chunky heels, a metallic cuff bracelet, and a quirky purse.

Hey Tasters, hope you’re doing absolutely fantastic! I know I am: I leave for college in two days, and even though I’m majorly overwhelmed (I hate change), I’m super excited and can’t wait to meet new people, learn new things and have awesome new experiences. But there’s another reason I’m so excited today…

Today is Tantalizingly Tasteful’s second birthday!!!

So, a major shoutout to all of you Tasters who read all my ramblings and opinions.

And in the spirit of Tantalizingly Tasteful’s birthday, let’s take a look at my outfit from my friends’ graduation/goodbye party the other night!!

How to Transition Your Wardrobe from Summer to Fall

What’s the point of buying all new clothes for the summer that can only be worn for three months before being thrown into the basement until June comes around again? With these tips, you’ll be able to make your summer purchases last you way longer than summer beach nights!

  1. Layer, layer, layer!: Layering is basically the key to unlocking endless wardrobe possibilities. You can still rock a summer tank top or flowy dress in the fall, as long as you layer over (or even under!) to protect yourself from those crisp Autumn mornings and nights. Try a denim jacket with a maxi dress, a leather jacket over a cute summer crop top, or a pullover sweater with a brightly colored mini skirt! Seriously, you’ll be warm and stylish, plus you’re getting more bang for your buck! What’s not to love about that?
  2. Don’t underestimate the importance of makeup: Makeup can completely change your look before your eyes. By pairing a simple black dress with a dark red lip instead of a coral sparkly lipgloss, your ensemble goes from beach-y to vamp-y, which is perfect for fall! Even a darker eyeshadow can let you reinvent your summer go-to’s!
  3. Remember to accessorize: To me, fall means lattes, crisp morning air, and scarves. My go-to fall outfits are tank tops, a sweater, jeans, boots and a scarf, which is perfect for me because when I get hot in school, I can easily take off my scarf and sweater and still be comfortable. Plus, scarves are so darn soft and comfy, and come in so many different styles and colors, that they’re nearly impossible not to love! And then there are hats and gloves and bags… Just a simple change from a necklace to a scarf or a colorful woven bag to a structured purse can make such a difference!
  4. Shoes can make it or break it: Autumn would not be complete without a good pair of boots. Boots that can easily be paired with a breezy summer dress or a tank are so versatile and perfect. Even rainboots are a great way to add a little piece of fall (and even spring later on!) into your summer outfits.

Now I’d like your feedback! I hope this post gave to a little bit of a peek into my life and gave you some ideas about how you can make your summer wardrobe last you into autumn!

Back to School: Look #3: High-Waisted Jeans


When it’s time for school to start, I try to give my summer wardrobe an update by pairing items with pieces for fall. In this outfit, I’ll do just that to make an ensemble that is fun, cool and school appropriate! Hope you like it!

High-Waisted Jeans

I love high-waisted jeans so much. They flatter my small waist and are just comfortable. I just got an awesome new pair from Annie Sez (that I couldn’t find online) that hit my tiniest point. They’ve got four buttons and have a very classic silhouette, but they’re acid wash, so they’re super fun and flattering. If you don’t feel comfortable with a cool acid wash print, look for something with a dark rinse.

Crop Top

The awesome part about wearing high-waisted jeans? You can wear ultra cute crop tops without worrying about showing too much midriff. Crop tops draw attention to a small waist and show a little bit of skin without being too scandalous. Just make sure they’re not against your school dress code before wearing one! If you’re wearing a pair of acid wash jeans, I would stick to something solid but not boring, like this cute cutout crop top from Aéropostale. If you’re feeling brave, pair your jeans with a patterned crop top. Just make sure the tops have at least one similar color so they don’t clash, but avoid being matchy-matchy (unless it’s intentional!) If you’re going with a simple pair of plain blue jeans, pair them with a cute floral crop top to bring a bit of summer to the hallways!

(Tip: Let your crop tops air dry so they don’t shrink and become so small that you can’t wear them! That’s unattractive and a waste of money!)

Shoes

For this outfit, I would go with something effortless and simple to keep your outfit grounded and urban. I’d pair this with a pair of slip on shoes or a pair of Converse high tops. That way I’ll be cute and comfortable!

Accessories

For this outfit, I’d want to include some super cute and glam accessories. I’d wear a stack of homemade friendship bracelets on one wrist, and a watch and a few bangles and thin bracelets on the other. I would stick with stud earrings to keep attention on your outfit, as well as a few thin rings and one short and one medium length necklace or a layered necklace. This combination will make you look cool, but not like you’re trying too hard.
