Can you guys believe it’s already November?! Holy crap! No lie, I’m ready to close the door on 2017, but not before finishing up two whole months full of blogger collaborations! Today is the first day in a series of posts with some lovely ladies on how we style some major events coming up, starting with Thanksgiving.
If my casual look isn’t what you were thinking of rocking for Thanksgiving, check out some of the other ladies at the end of the post for some different inspiration.
Alert the press! I FINALLY nailed the J.Crew sleeve roll! I’m telling you that I have tried and tried with almost every button down shirt in my closet trying to get that perfect messy roll, and here it is!
Who would have thought that my trusty red flannel button down would be the piece it worked with? I’ve had this flannel forever, and it totally sealed it’s place in my closet for a few more years with this revelation.
Now that I’ve got that announcement out of the way, let me get on to the rest of the look…
I’m normally a dressy girl, but for some reason I was craving a relaxed look for Thanksgiving this year. Actually I’m looking forward to attending a ‘Friendsgiving’ here in Germany since I’m not going home for the holiday.
Really the most important part of a Thanksgiving look is having some room in your outfit for a food baby at the end of the evening! My flannel is kinda loose, and I’m wearing some of my comfiest, stretchiest jeans, too.
But to be honest, I totally worked this whole look around my new black booties. One of my good friends inspired me to get some ‘witchy’ black booties and I LOVE them! Wouldn’t they look great with black tights and a dress for a nicer Thanksgiving look?
They’re completely comfortable and I can tell they’re going to be some of my new favorites. They have a zipper on the side so you don’t have to re-do the laces each time you put them on, which makes getting out the door even faster.
If you aren’t feeling flannel, jeans, and booties this year, check out the full looks from the other beautiful ladies and read about their Thanksgiving plans below! I love how different everyone’s looks are, but I still see two other plaid-wearing gals 😉
Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood // Linda from A Labour of Life // Monica from Jersey Girl, Texan Heart // Shelbee from Shelbee on the Edge // Whitney from Whitney à la Mode // Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots // Lee from Wine and Couture // KellyAnn from This Blonde’s Shopping Bag // Michelle from Michelle’s Paige // Chrissy from Granola and Grace
Michelle: “On Thanksgiving, it’s all about food, family & comfort! Adding a vest to jeans & a blouse is the perfect way to make a casual outfit appropriate for Thanksgiving dinner!”
Chrissy: “Every year our family of six hops in our minivan and travels to central Illinois to celebrate Thanksgiving with my husband’s side of the family. I chose this outfit because I love the colors, as well as the reminder to be thankful.”
Shelbee: “This year for Thanksgiving, we are joining our best friends at their house and decided we might want to dress up just for the fun of dressing up. I chose a black knit long sleeve dress with lots of stretch to accommodate for food intake. My favorite red paisley blazer to add some color and tall black boots with a modest heel. A statement necklace completes the outfit. Comfortable, chic, and fun!”
Monica: “Hey y’all! The Thanksgiving holiday will be here sooner than we think! I wanted to show one of the many outfits that I’ll be choosing from on Thanksgiving. Over the past few years I’ve loved the whole casual vibes for Thanksgiving. I also make sure to find outfit that will hide the food baby I’ll have after eating on Thanksgiving! Since the fiance and I go to two different places on Thanksgiving we eat double. With that being said, I love this top because the sleeves are such a statement that no one will be looking at your stomach. Plus, it’s a super cute top. The pants are really comfy and have stretch to them, so you won’t have to worry about your pants not being able to expand, these will expand with you lol.
Linda: “ I love dressing up but I always need to be comfortable enough to serve and get everything ready for our guests. This Old Navy Tunic is a fav that can be dressed up or down at will. With fun leggings and OTK boots I am fall appropriate. Adding the pearls seemed to dress it up slightly.”
Lee: “Hi, I’m Lee and my blog is Wine & Couture. This year I am hosting, for the first time, Thanksgiving Dinner at my home. I am excited to decorate and have family over to share good food with.”
Kellyann: “Our Thanksgiving plans include dinner with our family. We usually eat outside and don’t expect cold weather so this dress and booties are perfect!”
Ada: “My Thanksgiving plans are laid-back. Some of my family members work till the afternoon. But we will get together, have a bigger meal than usual, talk, drink coffee and love on each-other. I chose a semi-dressy outfit this year consisting of a thick, brick-red skirt (it has the cutest pockets) with a forest green+navy plaid shirt and some fun sparkly white booties to glam it up. Also, I chose a long coatigan (cardigan sweater) as a topper.”
Whitney: “This year I will be celebrating Thanksgiving with my family and boyfriend at my sister’s new home in Colorado Springs. I usually want to be comfortable (obviously) but a little bit dressed-up and festive, so this year I’m wearing an on trend velvet top in fall colors.”
Jennie: “We are looking forward to having our four sons, daughter-in-law, and dogs together under one roof again for Thanksgiving! My autumnal colored shift dress is not only stylish with its bell sleeves, but also works well with leggings for a comfortable look that will disguise my holiday food baby!”
