Thanksgiving Outfit & Target Finds


Here's another outfit from the 10 piece packing list which I wore on Thanksgiving.  Except, you can be sure that belt came off in the middle of dinner.  Belts + food = no good.  

On another note, thanks for your input on the black boots yesterday!  After tweeting a couple of days ago that in October and November the only clothes I bought were workout pants and underwear, and after all the talk on black boots yesterday, of course I ran to Target.  And of course I spent a million dollars there.  I checked out these black slouchy boots, which I ended up liking a lot.  They're not quite as wrinkly around the calf as the picture suggests, just mostly around the ankles.  I still want to try them against option 8 from yesterday based on your recs.

And with the rest of the million dollars, I took home this black and white sequined blouse, this patterned top in green, and the herringbone scarf from the Fall Shopping: Scarves post (option #3) which is no longer online.  (See similar version..)  Usually I am that girl who buys a billion things at Target to test at home, knowing I will return most of them.  You can do that when you live down the street from the happiest place on earth.  But this time I don't think the returns are gonna happen.  Yikes!  That's what happens when the only thing you buy in a month is underwear.

  2. You picked up some great finds! I just bought that chiffon blouse in royal blue with black dots - it was marked down to $5.98! The cream and black one was marked down, too. I really like the green and blue one you bought!

  3. So cute! I love the pumpkin and cobalt colors together (my 7 year old daughter was wondering who I was writing to. I showed her your picture and she agreed. LOL).

  4. Audrey,

    Not sure how much you're trying to spend, but TJMaxx has the Franco Sarto Poet in black and cognac for $99.99 in most stores (at least here). They are leather and I love them - I got both colors (didn't need either) because they had my size and they were leather. I paid $150 for my Nine West cognac ones last season, so this was a steal.

  7. I really liked the blue and the cream ones too! It was pretty hard to decide. If I found them for $5.98 I would have bought them all for sure. Great find!

  8. I do love it so far! I haven't actually worn it yet for a long period of time, so we'll see how I feel about it then. It's super easy to dress up or dress down, so I love that part about it for sure.

  12. I wore a similar outfit formula for Thanksgiving last year! I was recreating Cynthia Brown's "accidental outfit" and wore black leggings, cognac boots, teal flowy button up blouse, and a brown scarf. Also the green top from Target... is that the same one MK from Outfit Posts has?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hey Iris! I've been backed up on blog reading for a few weeks, so I'm not sure which of MK's shirts you're referring to. But, if they look the same and they're both from Target I would assume yes, right?

  14. Love that green top!

  15. Darn that Target! I always spend way too much there as well! But it looks like you got some great items.

  16. Somehow, that scarf and that shirt together is perfection. I'm trying to bask in the satisfaction of your purchase through you since I cannot go to Target (it doesn't exist here). Looks like you scored some good pieces. :)

  17. Oh MAN! I cannot tell you how happy I am to have found your blog (via Pinterest). I'm trying to upgrade my style by accessorizing and wearing the pieces I own in different ways...but am always nervous that I've made a style blunder! Thanks for being a great resource for us aspiring stylistas-in-training!

  18. Love the sparkly top Audrey!

  19. Love this outfit combination and the colors together! Will your sister make me a scarf, too? :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yay! Just found the animal print shirt on clearance and picked up two belts. I'd love to see a post on belts, how to wear, what to wear, styles of, etc...Thanks so much for all the inspiration and copy cat rights. :-)

  21. Honestly, Audrey, I love everything about this outfit. I want every.single.thing that you're wearing!! You look flawless!!

  22. Great outfit. FUn and bohemian. the chunky scarf complements the tan boots quite well.

  23. I love your scarf! Is it knitted are crocheted? Do you happen to know what pattern she used?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ready for the long reply my sister sent me? I don't know what any of it means, but hopefully you do. Haha :)

    Here's the basic pattern I used (it's for crocheting, not knitting):

    http://www.crochetspot.com/crochet-pattern-chunky-cluster-cowl/#

    However, I usually modify the pattern a little to get the exact look I want, so here are a few notes (sorry if this is confusing/technical):

    1) I adjust the number of stitches in the first step (the foundation chain) depending on the thickness of the yarn I'm using. A super thick yarn needs fewer stitches in the foundation chain. This pattern is made a little differently from some scarfpatterns because first step in the pattern determines how tall the scarf is going to be (vertically), not how wide. The rest of the pattern determines how long the scarf will be (how may times it will wrap around your neck). So, if the recommended 23 stitches in Step 1 makes the scarf too tall, you can decrease the number of stitches, but keep it an odd number (example: 21, 19, 17, etc) so the rest of the pattern still works mathematically. You'll notice the scarf is made of a bunch of puffs/clusters. Each puff uses 2 stitches, so ultimately, the number of stitches in Step 1 is double the number of clusters (plus one stitch for turning when making the stitches) in the height of the scarf.

    2) I totally disregarded the suggested number of rows. The pattern as written makes a short cowl that can't be double-wrapped (like your grey one). To make one that can be double-wrapped (like your orange one), I kept making rows until I reached the length I wanted (in your case, approximately the length of both my arms when holding the scarf horizontally in both hands).
