There’s a chill in the air and the leaves are changing colors. Fall is officially here!
Now that Halloween has come and gone some people are already jamming to Mariah Carrey’s Christmas classic “All I Want for Christmas” (and who can blame them it’s a certified bop). But here at Collective Culture, we don’t treat Thanksgiving and November like the overlooked middle child of the holiday season (no offense to any middle kids reading this) like others. Thanksgiving gives us time to reflect on what we are most thankful for in life with the added bonus of time off work and school as well as a valid excuse to pack on five pounds from stuffing our faces.
I don’t know what it is about fall but my absolute favorite colors to wear during this season are olive green and burgundy. These two colors look good an anybody in my opinion regardless of skin tone and gender. An olive jacket is a great staple piece for anyone’s closet, and adding it to an outfit gives your look that extra oomph for you to start feeling yourself. A burgundy piece, whether it be the center of your look or just an accessory, looks great on everyone. Having a pair of olive or burgundy kicks can add some flair to your shoe game. And the two colors together…name a more iconic duo.
As for activities in November, the most obvious one is to spend time with your family at the dinner table on Thanksgiving Day. Share stories and laugh with your loved ones as you eat your heart out. Maybe watch a football game or the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade. If it’s not too cold outside, go for a walk and see how beautiful the leaves are before they’re all gone.
If for some reason you can’t celebrate the holiday with your, or they tap dance on your last nerve and you want to avoid an ensuing headache, attend a Friendsgiving instead with your favorite pals. If you’re up to the task you could channel your inner Martha Stewart and host Friendsgiving too. The general idea is to just relax, enjoy yourself, and surround yourself with people who genuinely make you happy.
The last thing I leave you with is to wear something stretchy to the dinner table because if you don’t look like you’re at least three months pregnant after Thanksgiving dinner you didn’t do it right.
