Four Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

This month has completely flown by, but weirdly, since we hosted a Friendsgiving it feels like we're already past Thanksgiving in my brain. But nope, that's this week! After all of the craziness of last week with work (14 hour days all week - yikes!) this week is all about relaxing and catching up. I'm working minimally on Monday and Tuesday and then am off the rest of the week. 

I always think Thanksgiving is going to be relaxing, but really since I was a kid it has always been a go-go-go couple of days. This year we're doing two Thanksgivings the day of, one in the morning with Jeff's dad's family, and then another that afternoon with Jeff's mom's family. I always get asked how it feels to eat two Thanksgiving dinners in one day, but really, it's not that bad. I'm not too crazy about Thanksgiving food, so I don't stuff myself silly. Just give me some mashed potatoes, turkey, and a vegetable that hasn't been casseroled, and I'm a happy girl! After the big Turkey day, we're spending Friday downtown with my mom's family, and then, because I'm a crazy person, we planned Mia's baptism for Sunday.

For Thanksgiving, we've always gone pretty casual since my mom stopped putting us in lacy, ruffly dresses in about 1993. Jeans and tee shirts are perfectly acceptable at our dinner table. But, you know me, I like to make things a little festive. I put together a couple of outfit ideas for you in case you're trying to figure out what to wear. 

Outfit 1: Tee / Sweater / Jeans / Mules / Hair Clips 

This is really just a fancy jeans and tee combo, but adding a cardigan and mules instead of sneakers makes everything feel a little fancier. I love these jeans for Thanksgiving because they're super stretchy, giving you ample food baby room, while still somehow sucking things in. I also like that the outfit is still special on its own when you take the shoes off, which I will be doing at both of our Thanksgivings. 

In case your family gets a little more dressed up but you still want to feel super comfortable, this is the outfit for you. The leggings give a faux leather look, but really just have a slight sheen to them so they look fancier. The sweater is the coziest thing ever, it's so soft. I wore this all throughout my pregnancy and it is still going strong. This exact one is sold out, but there's a new version this year with slightly different sleeves. And then I love tossing on a scarf to add a little more visual interest. The plaid feels festive, but thanks to the colors screams fall instead of Christmas.

In case your family really does things up, this is the perfect outfit! It's actually what I'm planning on wearing to Mia's baptism. The dress is a sweater dress, so it's really easy to dress down too - I could see it looking super cute with some slouchy boots. This belt is something I snagged on sale a couple of years ago and I still reach for it all the time, I love how it adds just a touch of visual interest to whatever you're wearing. 

Lol I did these in the wrooooong order hahaha, but oh well. With blue jeans and a white tee, this is really the most casual of the four. I love the J.Crew toothpick jeans because they're so soft and stretchy, I'm pretty sure I've slept in these before! And I also like this particular pair of jeans because they don't have a ton of distressing, so your grandma won't suggest you're homeless - or is that just my grandma? It's such a simple look, but with the fall colors you can't go wrong.
