Outfit Details: Thanksgiving in the Fall


This past weekend was so much fun! I ate a wonderful turkey meal, got to spend quality time with the family and relax completely! It was a weekend full of happiness and love, which is my favourite kind of weekend! So what brings this weekend full of joy? Thanksgiving, that is! In Canada, we give thanks in October. Everything is perfect from the Fall colours to the smell of turkey that consumes the household!

I thought that it would be fun if this week I made Pearls and Polkadots into a landing ground for looks. Outfit details for five days in a row! There will be dressy looks, classic looks and casual looks and I am calling it “A Thanksgiving Series of details!”…so make sure you return to get the details on each look I will be putting out!!

Today’s Look: Olive green sleeveless turtleneck, tan pants, cognac boots, gold necklace, and leopard clutch!

This weekend’s weather was beautiful, and surprisingly pretty warm. So it was necessary to dress appropriately and what better to dress in than a sleeveless turtleneck? Keep in mind, it is still Fall, so it wasn’t boiling like a hot summer day. I could definitely get away with this cozy sleeveless turtleneck from Winners! The olive green is one of my favourite colours and perfect for the Fall colours that have taken over my neighborhood!


I paired the turtleneck with tan coloured pants that I picked up at Old Navy last year. These are “pixie pants”. I love them and they are my favourite pants to dress in. They stretch so they fit my shape really well, and they are comfortable because they mimic leggings! If you were reading last week, I did a whole post on how much I love the colour tan, and more specifically, tan pants! Tan pants are a staple in my wardrobe…I wear them with pretty much everything!


I am pretty much obsessed with these boots. I got them on sale last Boxing Day and they are from Guess. They aren’t too high, and the colour is so rich. I can wear the colour with everything and more importantly, they do not hurt my feet at all! The gathered leather around the calf also gives the look a neat look. They aren’t so straight legged, which is perfect when you are going for a more dressy look (like a look for Thanksgiving…).


Gold jewelry steps a look up in any case. I much prefer gold jewelry to silver jewelry, only because it goes with more. The warm undertone of the metallic gold is an added bonus in any look, especially this one. I also think that gold picks up the tones in the tan pants, which is nice. This necklace is from Ardene – I love stopping by to get inexpensive costume jewelry here (when you’re a student…you have to keep to a budget) – it does the trick and looks nice!


I have had a thing for leopard print for a while now. My sister bugs me because she thinks it’s tacky, but when used correctly, I think it can look really fun and full of style! Now, there are limits when it comes to the print. I don’t own any clothing items (shirts, sweaters, etc…) that I would wear out (except a onesie…but that’s different), but purses, belts, shoes…I love to wear because it’s a print that can really step up your look. This clutch is from J.Crew Factory and it is the perfect clutch for family gatherings because it holds pretty much everything you need!


So there are the details of my first Thanksgiving look of the series! I love assembling outfits and even more, I love giving the details! There’s something to be said about looking polished – not just for a dinner, but in general. I love to dress up and I will never stop. It is the whole reason I began this blog in the first place! Sharing what I love to do…which is dress up in outfits and take pictures! Fashion is my passion…

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the necklace and clutch. And you’re right, leopard print is so cute on accessories (but only toddlers can pull off leopard print clothing). 😉
