Is your bird thawing??? Are your fingers ready to click away and do some serious online shopping or will you grab a Starbucks in the wee hours of Friday and fight for your right of the BEST Black Friday deals? Hard to believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving! 
Let's talk about dressing for the food feast! We tend to dress pretty cas on Turkey day so a nice, pretty relaxed shirt is always good! Sweaters are too hot for the heated kitchen. This Anthropologie shirt had just the right look, colors I love and the pretty little ruffle factor was the clincher. 
It's also another TWO-FER post for MelSheaffer and Shay's What's UP Wednesday for a special week early Thanksgiving Edition. 
I'm so excited to link this up today with our fashion find link-up with The Blended Blog!
We do not have an Anthropologie store near by. In fact, I've only ever been in one once. A little pricey but they do have good sales and if it is a piece that I know will last me a long time and will be somewhat timeless, I'm sold for the quality and uniqueness of their lines. 

I never really used to like blue that well, but it has really grown on me over the years, this hat and these boots from Aldo are a couple of my favorite pieces and I thought they looked pretty cute with the shirt. The wine colored bag was a Nordstrom sale purchase from Soul Society and I am so in love with it! It is sturdy, just the right size and the inside has a leopard print which is darling.
