Happy Thanksgiving, American readers! I’m still recovering from the coma inducing food binge of yesterday, so I’m thinking that something with a really forgiving waistline is in order for today’s outfit. The day before Thanksgiving, T. and I took a day trip to Salzburg and spent a considerable amount of time at the Christmas market there. Because we did drag ourselves away from the food and the Glühwein occasionally, I wore my flat boots to be able to comfortably walk around as much as needed. I wore my skinnies tucked into boots, since I’m really loving this look this winter. Sal did a great post on the art of tucking just recently, so if you’re having doubts or need some pointers on how to approach this trend, do check out her most helpful post!
I then wore this tank top as a vest (a trick I tried once previously) and intertwined two scarves for a cozier and fuller effect. I really liked the two-scarves look and think it would be really fun to try with a patterned scarf and a solid, or for the more daring, with two patterned scarves to create a really visually interesting result. Is this something you’ve tried out before?
And for a final note on the hair, I’ve been loving the “Dutch braid” to the side look, as rocked most fabulously by Julie of Orchid Grey. For this windy day trip, I pulled the braid and my remaining hair into a topknot. If you’re wondering how to do a topknot, check out Kyla’s great how-to video. Kyla makes me wish I had straight hair so that I could recreate her amazing bangs-and-topknot look, just see her great site Blue Collar Catwalk for case in point.
And now, I leave you with some shots of the Salzburger Christkindlmarkt, while I try to figure out what I can still fit into today. Oh, delicious Thanksgiving dinner, how you weak havoc on my waist line…. S.
