Thanksgiving Looks and Black Friday Wishlist

Happy Thanksgiving! We wanted to do something special today for the holiday before introducing our Thursday guest blogger’s post. Thanksgiving is such a fun time to get together with (extended) family and friends and loved ones. Perhaps you are visiting home and will be able to see old high school friends as well as family. Or maybe you are venturing off to new territory to meet the significant others’ family and friends. Either way, its an occasion where planning your outfit can cause a bit of stress– especially if you are traveling, if you are meeting new people, or have multiple plans for the day. We have picked 2 looks for the day that are equally comfortable (for eating) but still stylish and sophisticated (for making good impressions).

Whimsically Casual
Whimsically Casual… effortless tshirt dress belted with Oxford pumps (or flats) to match. (Doubtful anyone will notice if you need to remove the belt after feasting on tofu-rkey and pumpkin pie).

And what do we do after we stuff our faces!?!? If we are lucky to get out of our food comas, we clearly will be headed to the department stores for late-night shopping! Need ideas for gifts?! For her last post of the month, Annie has shared her seasonal wish list. And at such great timing, since Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year.

Holiday Shopping: NOT on a budget by Annie Zhang

  1. Your going to need some bubbly while opening your fabulous gifts…
  2.  A PINK Christmas anyone?
  3. Well I certainly DO now…
  4. Every girl needs a little Chloe in her life…
  5. Peacock me pretty!

Don’t make me say it. Ok I will. You are going to need a fabulous dress by ArielSimone to jazz up all the pretty gifts above. So what are you waiting for? The holidays await!

Its been a real pleasure to have been a guest blogger for ArielSimone. I like to thank my dear friends Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales for always surprising me with endless ways of delighting myself.
