I am just about ready to click “buy” on our flights home for Thanksgiving, if you can believe it.  This has led me to wonder — what will I wear?  I’ve been lusting after pretty much everything from Self Portrait this season, especially this and this, so this more affordable take on the lace styling of SP caught my attention: pair a high-necked crop top ($80) with a matching pencil skirt ($105).



Pair with some great heels (Gianvito Rossi, $670):

Other top picks: this Alice + Olivia textured collared dress ($396); this floral printed collared dress from Erin Fetherston ($335); this elegant floral midi dress from Cynthia Rowley ($388); this floaty floral mini ($368); this plum-colored maxi ($308); this printed Ronny Kobo ($398);  For post-turkey day shopping, love this woolen coat (on sale for $216) over my favorite fall sweater ($98 — just picked this up and LOVE it; super roomy and in the color of the season), with jeans and some suede loafers (M. Gemi, $198):
