Tied-Up In Giving Thanks


I love dressing-up a little more formal and fancy around the holidays and what says fancy or formal more than a bow tie. Recently infatuated with getting my pup one, it was only a matter of time I attempted the look myself. Yet I had not been too keen on wearing one the traditional way, but more seeking a new take on the style. Almost as if it was meant to be, I picked up this bow tie necklace at SF Thread last weekend, jonzing to wear it asap. Taking inspiration in the bow tie's colorful ikat print, I ended up color-blocking an ensemble, worthy of yummy Thanksgiving dinner rounds. I must inform you though, my mother and I had quite the "discussion" over my outfit, her claiming it was a little too "loud" and me stating haven't I always been a tad bit too "loud". I almost doubled over in laughter when she of course figured out a way to bring up her dislike, of my color-collaboration, yet once again, as we discussed our Mexico trip coming up in March. "Aye no. Don't you even think about dressing like that when you go down there. Your gonna scare everyone," she claimed as she cut the Turkey.  Gosh I wish it was March already. Any who, thankful for the food and certainly thankful for the family time, my short but sweet Thanksgiving staycation was a fun start to the holiday season.
