Hey pretties! Can we all just agree that it’s been quite a year? Between bad news coming at us every day and our individual personal struggles, it can all just feel like too much. I’m not sure how you are all coping but I’ve found that starting and ending each day with gratitude for what’s right in my world helps dramatically. No matter what’s going on, there’s always, always, always something to be thankful for.
What better time than November to practice radical gratitude! Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and also my second favorite holiday of the year. We’ll be hosting our extended family for dinner so I’m already thinking about some comfortable, easy outfits that will allow me to take care of hostessing duties while still looking put together.
Today’s post features two ways to wear a thankful graphic tee. In all fairness, the only thing that’s changing in these two looks is I swapped the plaid shirt for a long cardigan and added my favorite statement necklace. The base pieces in both outfits are my new thankful tee and my favorite super soft frayed hem jeans. Note: I’m wearing the women’s fit in this tee. It runs a bit small so you may want to order up a size.
UPDATE! My Thankful tee has sold out but you can shop some other cute options HERE.
Plaid Shirt + Thankful Tee + Frayed Hem Jeans + Ankle Boots
I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect pair of gray ankle booties for close to a year. This pair is really comfortable and I love the little cut outs on the side. They will look cute with some patterned socks peeking out in colder weather.
Long Cardigan + Thankful Tee + Statement Necklace + Frayed Hem Jeans + Ankle Boots
In this outfit, this statement necklace is really the star of the show, it keeps selling out and restocking so you may want to check out this one or this one if you can’t get this exact necklace. It was on the shopping list for the Fall 2017 GYPO Style Challenge and Work Wear Capsule Wardrobe. It’s gotten a lot of wear so far this fall and will into the holiday season too!
Now, on to this month’s Pretty Fix! If you’re new around here, the Pretty Fix is my list of five pieces you can add to your wardrobe each month – all without breaking the bank. Shop my picks or shop your closet to create this month’s outfit.
Pretty Fix – November 2017
1. Plaid Shirt
Trust me, you’re going to want a red plaid shirt in your closet for fall and winter. It’s so easy to layer over and under other pieces in your closet. I recently bought this one and love how soft and drapey it is. Don’t worry, if red plaid isn’t your thing there are plenty of other pretty plaid options. Shopping Options: 1/2/3
2. Thankful Tee
A thankful tee is a great reminder that’s just perfect for November. If you order this tee, you’ll want to go up a size as it runs small (I’m wearing the women’s fit). Shopping options: 1/2/3
3. Long Cardigan
This beige long cardigan is just the right weight and it goes with just about everything. It’s a year round classic basic. Shopping options: 1/2/3
4. Frayed Hem Jeans
You’re probably tired of hearing me rave about these super soft frayed hem jeans. But how can I not? They are truly the pair I reach for most often in my closet. Shopping Options: 1/2/3
5. Ankle Boots
These gray ankle boots are the result of a nearly year long search for the perfect pair! I love the charcoal gray, it goes with everything. Shopping options: 1/2/3
Get the Look
Here’s another super cute take on this look. Instead of a plaid shirt, pair a plaid scarf with this 3/4 sleeve thankful shirt.
