We usually spend Thanksgiving in Southern California, as we always travel back to Texas for the Christmas holiday. But this year we decided to visit my husband’s hometown of McAllen – a small Texas town near the border of Mexico. It’s a vast change from the hustle of such a big city as LA, so we spent our few days back relaxing, eating good food (ALL THE TAMALES PLZZZ), and visiting with family. We baked my dinner rolls (which I make every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas), went to see Moana (go see it!), and roasted marshmallows for s’mores in the backyard.
I channeled my Texas roots with this laid back, all denim look. I used to think I couldn’t pull it off (flashbacks to this
disaster wonderment), but then I started thinking – we can all pull off whatever the heck we want. If we start putting limitations on ourselves for something as trivial as clothing, how can we expect to take risks in other, more important, areas of our lives? Don’t get me wrong, I think fashion is a wonderful and vital tool in expressing yourself, but there are much bigger challenges on which we should focus our energy.
If you’re still skeptical, the only “rule” I have for a denim on denim look is that the fabrics don’t match exactly (and maybe cool it on the bling – or not. Your choice).
For all my American readers, I hope you had a relaxing holiday break and were able to spend your time with loved ones (or just taking care of yourself – because that’s important too).
