I am working on paring down garments in my wardrobe and have put myself on a self-imposed ban. (Although, I did recently add a sweater to my wardrobe but I was replacing another sweater that is worn out.) As such, I have been shopping for jewelry to add to my collection instead. I have since added two bracelets, two rings, and a necklace to my collection!
In my opinion, jewelry is a great way to accessorize and complete an outfit. It is also a great way to add color or a delicate/edgy piece to reflect one’s style. As a person who considers herself to be fairly conservative style-wise, I find jewelry to be a great way to add some sparkle that isn’t screaming for attention. Here are some that I am currently coveting…
Resuming from a short break, this week’s rendition of What to Wear Where is the Thanksgiving outfit. If you can’t already tell, I quite enjoy this series of W2WW link ups. I was almost a little sad when there was no schedule or announcement of the next link up and tweeted Melissa of I Pick Pretty about it! To my relief, it was going on a short hiatus and not gone forever. Phew. 😛
Enough rambling and here’s an outfit that I would wear for Thanksgiving… (and for more outfits, head to Amy of Forever29‘s blog)
In the recent years, I have been wearing sweater dresses to Thanksgiving dinner when invited but I think I will switch things up a little this year and wear something brighter i.e. the jacquard H&M dress that is worn as a skirt. The colors also match beautifully with the Adia Kibur sample stone bib necklace courtesy of their PR team.
What will you be wearing for Thanksgiving this year? Do share!
I enjoy I Pick Pretty and Forever 29‘s What to Wear Where editions and I was a little upset with myself for not being able to partake in the Travel Outfit and the Date Night edition. I had taken pics for the Travel Outfit edition but forgot my laptop at home the night before I left for New York, as I stayed over at G’s since his apartment is closer to the airport. He was very sweet to return to my room to pick up my laptop but comically, he couldn’t find it as he was looking for it in the wrong bag! (no, I don’t have THAT many bags!)
Anyway, I’m back to blogging with an outfit for this week’s Arts Night Out edition hosted by Pancakes & Beet Juice. Here’s an outfit I’d wear to an Arts Night Out, be it to the art gallery, museum or theater…
I originally thought about pairing the outfit with my Cole Haan Violet Air Oxford booties here but decided to go with the tall boots instead for a more casual look. What do you think? Booties or tall boots?
Since the lovely PR folks at Adia Kibur gifted me this beautiful necklace (as posted here), I no longer need this necklace which I purchased from H&M. Therefore, I would like to give this to one of my readers here. (You may see it in my outfits here, here, and here.)

I had previously blogged about loving the Adia Kibur stone bib necklace but couldn’t justify the price and bought the H&M version in lieu of it. I was pleasantly surprised when their PR contacted me to ask for my details to send me one! Thank you, Joseph of Adia Kibur PR! (I will write a proper blog post about that soon!)
I would also like to take a moment to send my thoughts and prayers to all those personally affected by the 9-11 tragedy.
