SHOP EXACT/SIMILAR:
I decided to dress comfortably but still all glammed out this Thanksgiving. I had the stretchy leggings to accommodate all the yummy food, and the dark makeup, blingy details, and fur vest to add some drama. Of course, I took the vest off to eat-- I did not trust myself to get through a Thanksgiving dinner without spilling something on it. I wore the same leggings and boots for Friendsgiving. Couldn't get outfit pictures that day but maybe I'll wear the outfit again soon. :)

And I wanna talk leggings for a second: If you wear them a lot, a good pair of leggings is a wise investment. Sure, the $6 Target ones are cheaper. But they'll only last a few wears looking like new. I've had these Michael Kors leggings for around 3 years and have worn them countless times, and they still look and feel like new. The best part is they were only $20 in a Macy's clearance rack. I'm glad I found them at that price, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten them back then because I didn't yet know that leggings are worth splurging on.

I can't believe Thanksgiving weekend is over. Where does the time go?? I had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner with my family and then on Black Friday (not on Thanksgiving--never on Thanksgiving) I went to TWO different malls with my mom. It wasn't fun. Too tiring, and mediocre sales.  I did get three Target items I had been coveting, though, at 40% off, and I started my Christmas shopping earlier than last year. And hey, at least it wasn't as ridiculous as my first Black Friday. That was crazy.

How did you spend your Thanksgiving weekend, and what did you wear?
