Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Thanksgiving is the kickoff to the most wonderful time of the year (and it's my birthday), so naturally I am pretty excited for Thursday! Once Thanksgiving comes around, I feel like the holiday season is in full swing and there is nothing I love more than the holidays! Family, delicious food and of course, great outfits are what I am most looking forward to. Most years, my family hosts Thanksgiving, so when it comes to picking out and outfit I don't have to think about bundling up to travel somewhere. I am very indecisive when it comes to selecting an outfit for an event (this weekend I tried on five outfits before going out to dinner for a party), so I have three different Thanksgiving looks to share today! The first look is definitely the most formal, I paired my favorite black lace skit with a plaid shirt, nude pumps and a pearl statement necklace. For a more formal dinner, you could also opt for a dress, but I think that pearls and heels make any look more dressy. The second look is very simple and casual, I wore green cords, a white cable knit sweater and plaid scarf. Finally, the third look is semi-formal and I typically end up wearing some variation of this look every year. I wore my favorite J. Crew sweater dress with the perfect fall hues, a puffer vest, riding books and simple jewelry. What is your go-to Thanksgiving look, I am always looking for new ideas?

  1. I love all of these! Number 1 is my favorite, but my Thanksgivings aren't quite that fancy, so my outfit will be a little more casual!
