What To Wear: Thanksgiving Dinner

Can you seriously believe that Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away? I have no idea where 2012 has gone! But I’m not complaining because I just love this time of year. For Thanksgiving I like to dress up a bit, but keep it comfy. (Because let’s face it. We all like to be comfy when we’re sneaking a second slice of pie!) Our Thanksgiving this year is going to involve nearly 20 people, a whole bunch of kids, loads of food and football. So a sweater dress, tights, riding boots and a couple of colorful jewel-toned accessories are where it’s at for me. While I won’t be eating at my mother’s house this year, I’ve embraced her policy of showing up to dinner with your own to-go containers and I’m loving these flip-top canning jars for stowing away leftovers. Oh, and you can’t forget the perfect pair of gloves in case the weather is chilly.

great picks! and love the idea of coming w/your own to-go containers! very smart :)

This outfit is fantastic! Perfectly cozy! I am always so envious of people who can wear that mustardy-gold color. As I am light olive skinned, I look sickly in that color! But I LOVE it. :D


You’re in luck, Gabrielle! They have that sweater dress in black and with an awesome scarf it’d be just as festive. ;-)


I love the fashion posts and the style you post is totally inline and accessible for me. Keep ’em coming.

Love this outfit! It says the scarf is sold out :-( Any similar ones you’d suggest? I am a scarf hoarder….so versatile & fun!


Hey Cindy! I really love the scarves from Ash & Anchor and they have a ton of beautiful patterns and colors that I think would look amazing with this sweater dress! You can check them out here – http://shop.ashandanchor.com/category/scarves


I love those boots! I have been looking for a pair of black riding boots that look great but aren’t ridiculously expensive (aka Frye!). These are perfect! I love both colors, but need black more!

You put together the best outfits! :-)
