Is it Time for Turkey Yet?

OK, so I technically wore this outfit about two weeks ago when the temps were much more conducive to keeping my legs exposed, but it seems rather Thanksgiving-appropriate so I held off on posting this outfit until now (plus I also have a backlog of outfit pics - ladies who post outfits on the day-of, I don't know how you do it).

For those in the States, I'm wishing you lovely ladies a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend! I hope you spend lots of good time with your families and friends, eat what makes you happy, and stay toasty for those who are going to risk the early morning crowds on Friday.

I'm with my fam in NYC this weekend and have been busy gobbling up all my fave homemade goodies while playing tourist through Midtown.

I'm so thankful for a loving family (who happen to live in one of the greatest cities on earth so I have loads of excuses to visit), a patient BF who does not eye roll me to death when I want to go into yet another J.Crew store, the cutest pup ever, a job that allows me the luxury of travel (and ability to buy pretty things), and some fantastic stylish bloggie friends like yourselves. Have a great rest-of-the-week!

  2. It was easier to grab a few pictures each day in the summer and post on the day or the day after but now I only really manage on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as I am at home those afternoons and it's still light!

    Have a great time celebrating with your family :) x

  3. I WISH I had a backlog of photos! Love the pretty floral print on your skirt...it makes me think of springtime and warm weather, ha. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  5. I love this look on you today. I need to work on getting a backlog of photos...it's been pretty difficult since I travel a lot for work. I don't know how you do it!

  6. Very festive outfit! You're so lucky to have a very understanding BF. I hate eye-rolling and the dirty looks "they" give you when you say you want to go to yet another J. Crew store haha. Happy Thanksgiving! Have a wonderful time with your family.

  7. Cute outfit Lisa! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!

  8. Aw what a lovely Thanksgiving-y outfit indeed! My favorite part of Thanksgiving is realizing how grateful I am. I love your skirt Lisa! Have a great Thanksgiving!

  9. That skirt is lovely! Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family!

  10. You look like you walked out of a magazine ad - marvelous outfit.

  11. I love the colors in your outfit, perfect for the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving!

  12. It's funny to hear all this Thanksgiving talk, because to me, Thanksgiving was almost two months ago. Canadian Thanksgiving. But I'm not complaining about Black Friday deals. :) Love the colours in this outfit, hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  13. I have a backlog as well. I only get two days off a week and have to wear a uniform to work. It's why I cut my posts down to once a week too, which really hinders my blog growth. :(
    I find this very Thanksgiving appropriate and the little jacket over top is so cute!

  14. This look is so pretty Lisa! This could go day to night and I love it! Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving!

  18. Hi Lisa,
    Thanks for stopping by! I really love your style! I also do a lot of indoor shots so we should compare notes some time :) What kind of lighting do you use? I'm going to have to take some time and go through your pictues...so I'll be back!

  19. Oh. Lovely classic pieces. I need to wear a print skirt tomorrow now! (and maybe we should use OOTAD for the actual days an outfit is posted. Geez, my instagram shows my lies!
    Have a fabulous yummy thanksgiving!

  20. Happy Thanksgiving :) The skirt is such a pretty color :)


  21. Love the skirt! Happy Thanksgiving :)

  22. I love Target clothing, but find that the jackets are make for a petite frame. Medium frame like myself - forget it.

  23. This is such a pretty outfit! I love the skirt--that pattern is so unique.

  24. Great top & skirt! I bet your family is fab. I had a really nice Thanksgiving.

  25. definitely a very festive color pallet, and who isn't missing bare legs?
    hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving!

  26. I have a backlog too and some of them will never get posted. Great outfiit as usual. I had that navy blue downtown field but returned it a long time ago, think I want it back. ;)

    I hope you're continuing to have a wonderful time with your fam and have a safe trip back.

  27. I love your necklace, so nice on the sweater...you look very nice, and the skirt really suits you!

  28. That printed skirt is so nice, I like it with the green top! :)

    Lovely outfit :)

    Away From The Blue

  29. This skirt is beautiful. I love the print against the bright shirt.

  30. Yes you lead a happy life. Good on you. That bag is so nice. And I made the mistake of clicking on your links for similar bags.... oh dear... Coach legacy Haley Satchel and B Brain Atwood Satchel. That is not fair. They are divine and I am in a NOT-BUYING-ANYTHING-ANYMORE fase. So this is what they mean by kicking off, by kicking the habit. PAIN.

  31. Lisa, I love the whimsical print skirt with all of your pretty and colorful additions. You are a true J.Crew model, and I think so highly of that brand and you: such creative and distinctive clothes, no one comes close to their niche!
