thanksgiving weekend attire.
December 2, 2013 § 4 Comments
It’s with great pleasure that I report this year’s Thanksgiving was a smashing success.
Since my people celebrate this grand holiday in October and these American types prefer it in November, I was succumbed to waiting an extra month longer for my turkey, stuffing & pumpkin pie…how dare they :)
The extra days off and
probably most certainly one of the yummiest of meals is always oh so worth it, and spending it with one of my best friends and her family up in Oregon made it even better than I could have imagined.
I ate all the food, was all kinds of silly & childhish with her adorable and hilarious younger cousins, went wine tasting, spent a day exploring Portland, played with her aunt’s amazing bernese mountain dog named Sam (or Sammmyyyyyyyyy as he became known by) and finished each night lounging outside on the patio bundled under a blanket overlooking the city lights. It was perfect and I miss it already.
Packing for this weekend mainly consisted of throwing all my warmest layers into a small suitcase and hoping for the best. It all ended up working out just fine but in the spirit of all things fall and turkey-related, I thought I’d put together a round up of items that hypothetically would have made the cut had I given myself more than five minutes to pack :)
LA hasn’t had much of a fall – with the exception of a few days – so layering up, feeling my cheeks turning pink and seeing my breath was such a nice change.
I really never thought I’d say that.
