Thanksgiving is such a special time with family, and everyone has their own wonderful traditions. My family spends Thanksgiving at my grandmother’s house (remember Monna) where we enjoy a full feast before watching the Dallas Cowboys, and decorating her house for Christmas. We start the day in our “nice” clothes to take a family photo and enjoy my grandmother’s wonderful cooking, but soon change into our sweats for an evening full of football and leftovers. While I will probably we wearing something similar to the outfit above, I am also sharing two of my favorite casual Thanksgiving outfits as well!
This skirt and blouse are perfect for a more formal Thanksgiving, or brunch at the country club. I found this blouse at Banana Republic last year (wish I had bought every color), but I have linked some similar blouses (like this one) at the bottom of the post. This faux wrap skirt is currently on sale at J.Crew, but only until November 27th. Use code HOLIDAY to receive 40% off, and if you have a student ID, you can receive an extra 15% off! I love the fit and texture of this skirt, however it does run a bit big, I am wearing a 00 and it is still a little loose in the waist. I paired this look with pearls and simple nude pumps, but the skirt does have both navy and black in it making it look great with navy or black heels as well.
This look is perfect for a slightly more casual Thanksgiving lunch or dinner. Banana Republic has some great fall pieces on sale right now including this sweater which also comes in 10 other fall color. I am wearing a small (fits true to size), but the best part is this sweater is not itchy! The vest I am wearing above is from J.Crew about 3 years ago, but J.Crew Factory has a similar vest with the same pattern. J.Crew has the exact same vest but in different colors. This vest does run a little large as I am wearing an extra small and still have plenty of room for a thicker sweater underneath. I paired this look with my favorite skinny jeans from Gap and these gorgeous over the knee black boots from ASOS. I am wearing a size 8 in these boots (fits true to size) and have room for thick socks without the boots bunching up along the sides.
My final Thanksgiving outfit is a casual dress for a warmer football filled Thanksgiving. This dress is currently 40% off at Nordstrom and comes in black, maroon, burnt orange, and two striped colors. I am wearing a small and it fits well through the arms and in length (it just looks shorter with my legs). Since the dress is short sleeved, I paired it with a classic denim jacket from Gap and some fun fringed booties. For a warmer look, the booties could be swapped out for knee high or over the knee boots. Shop all of my Thanksgiving outfit necessities below and enjoy your Thanksgiving! xoxo
