Outfit of the Week: Neapolitan


Outfit of the Week: Neapolitan



When & What: This is what I wore for Thanksgiving, and it was influenced by an eye shadow palette. Seriously! And it made me think of Neapolitan ice cream, hence the outfit title.

Where: I always drive 5 hours with pup in tow, to my Mom's house, and usually the weather is hot. Ah, South Georgia. But this Thanksgiving was different: the weather was in the low 60s, and we didn't eat a Mom's, but at near a pond (see pics below) in the middle of nowhere. It was a nice change and just so peaceful.
Guest Mill Pond, Homerville, GA

The rest of my weekend was celebrating Nephew #1's 3rd birthday and doing some online shopping. My step-dad and I usually venture out to the Black Friday sales, but stayed in and watched all the college football games we could!

Heard: Chinese by Lily Allen on Grooveshark
Chinese, Lily Allen. I've written before about my synesthesia, and when I hear this song, it sounds pink and dreamy, kinda like the neapolitan colors in my outfit. And the song's about her mom, and I'm thankful for  my Mom!

Wore:
  • I have this soft pink cardi (mine was from Old Navy on clearance, for about $5), which was perfect for sitting by the pond.
  • Underneath I wore a brown tee, again from Old Navy $5.
  • We keep our Thanksgivings casual, and jeans are just about required.
  • To complete the look, I added a necklace, boots (H&M for $31), and soft eye makeup from this Wet N' Wild palette.

  1. Love the neapolitan colour palette - the colours go together so well and do remind me of childhood - getting a piece of neapolitan ice cream was like major excitement at the time
