Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

We are entering the best time of the year, the holidays! The first of many is Thanksgiving obviously and I thought what better thing to post than some outfit ideas for you all. I tried my best to include some variety within the outfits and thought that these four outfits were perfect for this time of year.

To begin, I have a super cozy, chunky outfit. Turtle necks are perfect for this time of year and so is olive-green. I’m pairing this sweater from Old Navy with some matching boot socks from Kohls to create a matchy-matchy look. My skinny jeans are from Hollister and I paired this outfit with my UGG Booties to create some contrast between all the green. I simply accessorize with a long gold necklace from Loft and added a gold watch from Kohls to tie the look together.

Some families simply stay at home for the holiday and don’t get too dressed up. I personally like to stay comfortable in what I call my ‘eating clothes’ for Thanksgiving. This outfit means a loose sweater and some leggings for the win. My knit is from the Gap Outlet, my tank that is layered underneath is from Old Navy, my leggings are from Hollister, and my riding boots are from Target. I also made sure to pair some leg warmers to coordinate with the tank and add a little something extra.

For the third look I wanted to incorporate this mustard yellow top which is perfect to wear around this time of year. It’s fun, festive, and the cold shoulder is totally in style right now. The matching choker is from Forever 21, my girlfriend jeans are from Gap, and my booties are the same UGG one’s from the first look!

Some people prefer to go the dress or skirt route so if this is your situation, this is the perfect outfit for you. My button front suede skirt is super trendy and perfect for this time of year. I added a black sweater to keep at least half of my body warm and added my lace up flats to the look to coordinate with the black of the sweater. I added a gold necklace and a gold watch to match the buttons on the skirt. I adore this outfit and I hope you all do too.

Well that’s it for my Thanksgiving outfit ideas; I hope you all enjoyed. Be sure to let me know which outfit was your favorite in the comments below along with any suggestions or questions you may have! I hope you all have the best day and before I go I just wanted to remind all of you how THANKFUL I am to have you guys with me this Thanksgiving. Thank you so much for stopping by. With love, McKenz.

Recreating Pinterest Outfits

I know for a fact I’m not the only gal that is constantly pinning outfits, shoes, and their dream life on Pinterest before they go to bed each night. A few months back I did a post where I recreated a few of my recent pins from Pinterest and you all really seemed to like it. I chose a few outfits from my various boards and decided to style them to really challenge myself to look through my closet and actually put some of the pictures to the test.

The first outfit was super casual and chunky. It’s something I would easily reach for during the weekend when I’m looking to just lounge around for the day but want to get out of my pajamas. I threw on a knit sweater from forever 21, tossed over my denim jacket from Kohls, and put on a pair of leggings from Target. I’m sure almost everyone has some sort of Converse, I just so happened to have black high tops as well.

I have been timid when thinking pattern mixing and have been dying to style my cheetah flats with a bandana which has left me constantly pinning outfit inspo for similar looks. This outfit happened to feature all the things I was looking for and I was able to style it almost identically. I wore my denim jacket from TJ Maxx over a striped tee from American Eagle. My black jeans are distressed so I opted for a classic dark wash instead. I thrifted these cheetah flats a while back and they are actually from Target as well as my black purse.

I love the preppy style especially during the colder months for all the layering purposes. I happened to have extremely similar pieces to the girl on the right so I decided to give it a go. My window pane flannel is last Winter’s from Old Navy as well as my red scarf. My medium wash jeans are from Hollister and my watch is from Kohls. I wanted to keep my socks white to match rather than the blue to pair with my bean boots from DSW.

Well that is it for today’s outfit recreations. I really hope you all enjoyed and if you have any outfits you would like me to recreate, feel free to message me them on Instagram. I would be happy to do a similar post styling them. Thank you all so much for reading; I hope this inspired you to look through your Pinterest boards and get your creative juices flowing the next time you find yourself standing in front of your closet. Have a fabulous day. With love, McKenz.

Makeup

Makeup Of The Day- bold eyes and a matte lip

If I’m being completely honest, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve done my makeup and been super in love with the way it turned out. This morning before school I was determined to have a good makeup day, as I had a super big day scheduled, and I ended up being super pleased with how my makeup turned out; so, I grabbed my camera and snapped some photos for you all.

Processed with VSCO with a5 presetProcessed with VSCO with a5 presetI wanted a bold eye, and I knew I wanted to use the Too Faced chocolate Bar, so I slapped on some Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer, the Maybelline color Tattoo in ‘Barely Branded’, and then worked the maroon-tinted shadows into my crease, outter v, and lower lash line. For the lid I popped on the super pigmented champagne color over top of a Wet N Wild Glitter. Moving on, I used the Anastasia Dip Brow to shape and fill my brows. For mascara I used Maybelline Great Lash and the Covergirl Flammed Up Mascara. I was so happy with the eyes.

For the rest of my face I kept my usual for routine and then contoured using the Lumene Bronzer and took the same champagne eyeshadow I used on my lids to highlight above my cheekbones, down my nose, and on my cupid bow for a super glowy, dramatic effect. For the lips I chose a matte lipstick from Buxom in the shade ‘Brooklynn’.

Well that’s a wrap for today’s blog post. I am super sorry for the lack of posts this week, I have a huge county cheer competition, playoffs starting for football, and a new quarter beginning which has left me with almost no time to breate or create. As always if you have any questions or comments please leave them below.

If you have any requests for blog posts or YouTube videos (yes, I will be getting back into the swing of things on YT next week!!) please leave them below. Thank you all so much for reading; sending all my love your way. With love, McKenz.
