Dress for Thanksgiving
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to prepare our stomachs for all the food we're going to eat, but also a fun outfit for the occasion. We always have Thanksgiving at my house and lots of family come to stay for the holiday. The dress is somewhat casual but I love coming up with clever ways to bring the fall and upcoming Christmas colors into my wardrobe.
I love the outfit on the very right. I have several dressy taffeta skirts and I love to dress them down by pairing the skirt with a plaid button down or oxford cloth shirts and flats. That way, you won't look too overdressed and you can get more wear out of your dressier skirts. I have written about getting plaid shirts and oxford shirts from the boys section of Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren. It's the best way to go because they have the best selection of plaids (way better than the women's sections) and they are also less pricey.
The second outfit from the left is another fall/winter staple look that I love. Pairing a crew-neck cable-knit sweater underneath a blazer is a great way to stay warm and also look put together. My favorite cable-knits are Ralph Lauren. I have several in wool and a few in cashmere-- I find that they are the best fit and have the most diverse selection of colors.
What are you wearing for Thanksgiving? Do you get dressed up or are you dressed more casual? I will post my Thanksgiving outfit in an OOTD sometime after Thanksgiving! Remember to enter the Lemon and Line bracelet giveaway! Have a fabulous day!
