My Thanksgiving Outfit

Oh my goodness, Thanksgiving is next week!!! WHAT?!  Our family always goes to my brother and sister-in-law’s house on Thanksgiving Day.  If all of our immediate family are in attendance that is 19 people.  Although the group has gotten smaller with the passing of our parents and my sister-in-law Julie’s parents and sister, we are very thankful for each and every one that is there.

Our family loves to eat and we are pretty good at cooking too.  Because of this, it is necessary for me to be strategic when choosing the perfect Thanksgiving Day Ensemble.  It needs to be comfy but not sloppy.  It has to be free-flowing and not constricting in any way so as to allow me to make several trips to the dessert table.

Dress// Sweater// Boots// Necklace

As most of you know, I am a dress girl.  I love the ease of slipping it on with your favorite boots and voila, you’re done.  You can wear a cardigan over it if it’s a chilly day.  Layering is key when you aren’t sure of either how hot a room will be or if your internal furnace will go crazy.

This dress from Free People meets all of the aforementioned criteria for the perfect Thanksgiving attire.  The cut is very forgiving and allows for that extra helping of mashed potatoes and gravy.  It is swingy and the brown, black, and lime green colors make for a lovely Fall pallet.  I’ll pull on my chocolate brown Tory Burch Miller Boots and throw my favorite Madewell open cardigan over top.  Now, I am ready to get my grub on.

Tunic// Sweater// Leggings// Boots// Purse

If a dress isn’t your thing, then a nice pair of stretchy leggings and a tunic works just as well.  I still love this one that I got last year from Loft.  The print and colors are just beautiful.  I added a peach cardigan, a pair of navy leggings, a long necklace and my light tan Lucky Boots.  It’s as easy as that.

Don’t you show up at your family Thanksgiving or friendsgiving or ANY giving for that matter, looking like that crazy relative that just got a day pass from the mental hospital.  There’s no excuse to look like a hobo people!!!
