Over the river and through the woods…

It’s almost Thanksgiving, and if was up to me, the only requirement would be a hair tie and my eating sweats, but in my house, it’s a holiday that requires a touch of decorum, and an underwire bra. I mean, we’re rarely fancy, but I like to eat warm turkey in pretty clothes, and save the leggings for Black Friday eating it cold out of a zip lock bag. We all have our traditions.

In fact, it’s been my goal over the last three years to turn holidays into an event. My mom has albums of memories of my grandmother in pretty holiday dresses with set hair, entertaining rooms of people with stories and a glass of wine in her hand… I have no photos like that. Holidays were never an event for me, they were a “did you just take my photo? Can I see it? Oh my God, please delete it.”

Holidays are now an event in our home. And those photos are proof of life, so bring on the champagne and cloth napkins and clothes, I’ve got pictures to smile for.

Now, because everything’s better with options, I’ve put together four Thanksgiving Day outfits, from the casual to the lovely, to inspire and get those style juices flowing so you’re eating your pie in style… and hopefully with extra whipped cream.

Thanksgiving Feminine

Feminine. This outfit feels vintage with a touch of flirty; like Lucille Ball in the kitchen, Jayne Mansfield in the bedroom.
Denim Shirt: Target Women’s Plus, size 1
Skirt: Ikebana for All, Modcloth, size 1X
Belt: Brown Braided Gold Buckle Belt, Lane Bryant
Shoes: Tan Wedges, Target

Thanksgiving Casual

Casual. Eating is my number one priority, and I don’t necessarily need a dress for that. I can squat down at the kid’s table with the best of them.
Hello There Sweatshirt, size XXL, Old Navy
Yellow Striped Tank, size XXL, Kohls
The Rockstar Midrise Super Skinny, size 16, Old Navy
Brown Leather Boots, Fitzwell

Thanksgiving Country

A Little Bit Country. I’m a born and raised country girl, and this is me adding a touch of cold-weather flirt to last summer’s eyelet dress.
Gray Sweater, size XXL, Old Navy
White Eyelet Dress, size XXL, Target
Brown Leather Boots, Fitzwell

Thanksgiving Sporty

Boho Easy. It has taken me exactly five years to embrace this bootie craze, mostly because I don’t like things that cut me off in the leg, as it’s one of my thickest parts. But for a good mocc? I make exceptions and learn to embrace my calves.
Gray Fleece Dress, size XL, Old Navy
(Note: I seriously wish I would have sized up in the dress for extra comfort. Ahh hindsight.)
Brown Moccasins, Target
