Oh, that was last week? Let’s revisit the holiday with these photos that have seemingly nothing to do with the holiday. But, nay, these were taken across the street from my house. A house that was filled with family, food, and football for the holiday. Too much food, actually. Most of us were so full from grazing on the appetizers all day that when it came time for dinner, a lot of plates were left unfinished. You know what that means? Leftovers!
I had pie, cake, and stuffing for breakfast about four days in a row. I like to eat healthy, so I made sure to have a few grapes on the side to balance it out.
Also, Black Friday? I don’t participate. My mom and Aunt went out at 2 a.m., when my cousins and I were winding down from our movie marathon tradition. I value sleep. And also knowing there would be a big chance that someone would finish the pie if I went out all day makes it a deal breaker. My cousins and I did end up thrifting a bit later in the morning after the crowds went home.
The best part about Thanksgiving though? Having a “Friendsgiving” later in the week. My waistline might have done a bit of expanding this past week.
I know I am on the Crossroads Style Council, but I can promise you that I do not style exclusive Crossroads outfits on purpose. It just happens. It’s happened before and it will happen again. I usually find a full outfit on the same shopping trip, so there’s your proof proving how awesome thrifting in general is.
Thrifty Tip #9583: Look for pieces that work together and get an entire affordable outfit. Then mix and match!
Also, this maxi skirt is pulled up over my bra.
Multiple people mentioned that I looked like I stepped out of Home on the Prairie with this outfit and hair style. And to them I said, “Good.” The more people don’t understand my outfits, the more I know that I do.
How do you feel when someone questions your outfits?
And then I ran away and twirled.
Truth be told, I was feeling a little “Sound of Music” in this outfit.
