Lee's Corner: A tale of Two Thanksgiving Styles
  Dear Lee, Me and my boyfriend have two thanksgivings to go to. One is a "friendsgiving" at my friends, the other is at my boyfriend's SUPER conservative Christian parents. I won't have time to change between both, but want to look cool and relaxed for my friends and "saintly" for the 'rents. How do I find an in between? Sincerely, Seeking Balance   Seeking Balance, Aren't you quite the busy bee! Now that you've overcome the stress of scheduling, let's tackle your style issues. In the spirit of this holiday I want you to be thankful for 2 things: Sweater dresses and BIG bags. Both of these things will save you from appearing like a trollop in front of his parents or stuck up in front of your friends. Let me explain:   [caption id="attachment_16730" align="aligncenter" width="630"]family giving Chickwish Dress, AA skater skirt, Jennifer Zeuner Cross, Asos Flats, Celine bag[/caption] A conservative thanksgiving- This Maroon sweater dress and Celine tote will be your way to holiday transition. For the Christian parents wear the dress under a mid-length skater skirt. The layers make it look more put together and tasteful. Opt for flats and not heels. Think private school girl meets grown adult. The cross necklace is just a nice touch to gain some brownie points. So why the big bag you ask? Please proceed to my second outfit!   [caption id="attachment_16732" align="aligncenter" width="630"]friendsgiving Chicwish dress, Celine Dress, Ryan Roche hat, Asos stacked rings, Givenchy boots[/caption] A thanksgiving fit for a friend- You will be channeling Mary Poppins this holiday! Your tote will carry all you need to turn your saintly self into a party gal. Ditch the skirt and let your sweater dress hang free. Pair it with some knee/thigh high boots and a floppy hat to up your trend game. Keep the cross or trade it for some cute accessories such as stacked rings.
