Us Fashionistas have a hearty appetite for fashion and food. With Thanksgiving coming (and Black Friday—which we all know is equally as exciting) comfort is critical for most Fashionistas. Many of us will want to wear clothing that allows for seconds but still lets us look polished. I spotted this Fashionista on one of the last few days before Thanksgiving break and loved how casual and put together she looked at the same time. This Fashionista put a laidback spin on the classic blazer to show her own personal style. The way she styled her relaxed sweatshirt with a chic blazer sets her apart from the pack. It allows her to comfortably indulge in her favorite Thanksgiving treats because, let's admit it, we all need an outfit that forgives a few pieces of pumpkin pie.
