Excuse the windswept hair, it was quite the breezy day haha. This is my Thanksgiving outfit! It's the perfect fall/winter/holiday look, and is almost casual but for the crisp white blazer that polishes everything off.
Even though I don't personally agree with Thanksgiving Day's historic roots, I still think there's great merit in a day when people go out of their way to be thankful. I know everyone says trite things like, "You should be thankful everyday, not just on Thanksgiving," but c'mon. Honestly, that's not something we keep in mind amidst the hustle and bustle of our daily routine. It's unfortunate, but we've become so busy and caught up in our fast-paced lives that we forget the little, yet meaningful, things. It's nice that for a day, the whole nation stops what they're doing to reflect on what they take for granted. I'm thankful to be alive. I'm thankful for all seven of my wonderful dogs. I'm thankful for my friends; I deeply appreciate that every single one of them is someone I can learn from. I was born into extremely unfortunate circumstances and my family and I never had it easy, but I'm thankful that in recent years, our lives have been turning around. I really feel like 2013 was the turning point for us, and I'm thankful that we are making our dreams come true, together. Last, but certainly not least, I'm eternally thankful for you, my readers. You made this blog what it is! Not a day goes by that I don't think fondly of you guys and want to hug you to pieces.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving (for you Americans) and a wonderful day (for international folk)! Eat, drink, be merry, and cherish your loved ones! <3
