5 Outfit Ideas for Thanksgiving

Ok friends, let's be real for a second.  Not only are we concerned with getting the food prepped and ready for our big Turkey day feast, but if you're like me, you have to put some thought into what you are going to wear!

I put together 5 different outfit combos that will help make your decision easier based on your typical style and activities of the day!

#1 Thanksgiving Day Casual

This is for those that like to be comfortable and casual.  Perfect for enjoying a meal and hanging out chatting with relatives, cleaning up dishes, and watching football.  Not dressed up, but still looking cute!

Jeans: Madewell, Blanket Scarf: Shoptiques, Tee: Merona, Ankle Boots: Toms, Bucket Bag: JCrew

#2 Thanksgiving Day Smart Casual

I tend to fall into this category.  I usually put on something a bit more than jeans, but still comfy and casual.  Definitely flats, no heels here.  Especially this year since I am hosting family and will be busy all day long.

#3 Thanksgiving Day Dressed Up Casual

I love this!  It's a dress, but being a sweater, it is still comfortable.  Paired with boots, it's the perfect fall combination.

#4 Thanksgiving Dressed Up

Dressed up Thanksgiving for a more formal affair.  Skirt, heels and a soft flowy sweater tucked in.  Paired with gold accessories and a leather cross body, you are set for a more dressed up event.

#5 Thanksgiving/ Black Friday Shopping 

This is for those who have finished the turkey, need the stretchy pants, and have moved on to the fun of the day, shopping!  Yoga pants, tennis shoes, a lightweight foldable jacket to throw in your bag and a small cross body are your necessities for hitting the stores!

      Heather, it’s the best and you just might see it pop up every once in a while as a table cloth, a blanket on my couch or in any number of other blog pics!! Multi- purpose, lol! 🙂
