A Pot-Luck Thanksgiving

For the last few years my friends and I have had a tradition of what we call “Orphan’s Thanksgiving”.  Rather than lots of small thanksgiving dinners, those of us without family or without nearby family get together and do a pot luck thanksgiving.  Everyone brings a couple of things and we eat together.

As you might expect, this doesn’t require a dressed up look.  So I went for stylish casual with all items I’ve worn before:

  • Blue snake print jeans (Kohls)
  • Black flow-y knit top (Valerie Bertinelli for Marshalls)
  • Black ballet-flat style sneakers (Marshalls, similar)
  • Brass geometric necklace (Loyalty and Blood via Fab.com)
  • Brass bracelet (the little boutique across the street)
  • Prescription Sunglasses (Goggles4u)

Looking at the picture, I’m not entirely happy with the taper on the leg of the jeans.  However snake print jeans like this are a very trendy style, and likely to be OUT of style again fairly quickly.  Plus they were pretty cheap in the first place, and border on too big.

And I know; a fashion in sneakers!!!  What a shock!  I can’t recall the last time I saw that…  We’ll just write that one off as my own personal style 😉
