Yo. I'm maaad late with this post from Thanksgiving. First, my cousin C got me sick, so I was rolling around in my bed for like 5 days dying, then I was just being lazy for a few additional days to make sure I was actually well lol.  Honestly, I'm not the biggest fan of turkey day. I HATE poultry, and pretty much every other dish most people eat in celebration. I guess the only thing I do like about it is the concept and an excuse to dress up.

In light of the festivities, I wanted to look pretty and classic, so I wore my new dress from Sugarlips. I was a little afraid that the color would exaggerate my lack of a tan, but I somehow managed to look sun kissed (read: bronzer).  It's conservative enough for church and fam time, but still has some edge because of the mesh and cutouts. I usually add some sort of randomness to my ensembles, here it's my shoes.

I was initially going to wear my SOIREE's or some black pumps, but that felt boring, so I tried on my fave shoes circa a year or so ago. They're these dope N.Y.L.A. shoes that closely resemble a Givenchy pair I seen Cassie wear and knew I had to buy. Sadly, I was broke, so these had to do. And I wore them to the GROUND! Even though they are leopard, I feel leopard is a neutral, and I couldn't take them off. I loved this look. Perfect for enjoying my day under the trees.
