What I wore to Thanksgiving dinner...

Thursday, November 22, 2012

I can’t believe that it’s Turkey Day already! My hubby, sadly, is working until 7 so we’ll be joining my fam for a late Thanksgiving dinner. It’s our first ‘married’ Thanksgiving, and I can’t tell you how many people have asked me if we’re cooking. Based on the fact that I had multiple problems with the boxed dinner I attempted to concoct last night for us, the answer is no. Maybe someday?  I will proudly be bringing over a loaf of pumpkin bread (my mom’s recipe of course) that I made on my last day off, which seems like eons ago, and then stored in the fridge (hopefully it’s not stale).
Grace at Camp Patton had the lovely idea to link up Thanksgiving dinner outfits. She and I went to the same college for undergrad (Steubie U, a.k.a Franciscan University of Steubenville) and I found her blog through mutual friends. She never fails to make me laugh, and she always has cute, budget-friendly outfit ideas.  Also, her husband is doing his Ob-Gyn residency, a specialty I’m seriously considering, although Grace’s stories of his crazy call hours are a little scary.
On to the outfit! I’m seriously loving chambray lately, as I am this orangey-red.  I took another opportunity to wear my favorite slim cropped pants and Target wedges sans socks before a predicted massive snowstorm hits tonight. And I give credit to my old roomie Megan for the necklace: she taught me that chunky twisted pearls make any outfit more fun.

    1. Gracias! I literally just started trying to blog a couple weeks ago, I've been wanting to for long time but medical school...I so love reading your blog!

      Might have to get more of the scoop on OB residency from you when I get closer to applying, ha.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  3. That is a fab color combo (the orangey red with the chambray). I might have to try and cook up something like that out of my closet o' doom!

  8. Great layers and that reminds me.....I think I'll break out MY pearls soon!!!

  9. Really great outfit! I need some pearls. Good luck in your continuing education and eventual chosen specialization. We need as many good, faithful doctors as we can get!

  10. Um. Can I have all of this outfit? I think we are style pals. I have those wedges in grey...they are my go-to. All of the time.
