What To Wear: Thanksgiving Dinner

Can y'all believe that Thanksgiving is next week?!

I know, I know, me neither. 

But in my head, all that I've been trying to do is make it through these last few weeks of school.
I swear, I don't know how I let all of these projects and papers pile up on me, but they definitely do.
But the plus side of being in the education program is that instead of having a final, we have teaching demonstrations and portfolio assignments, oh and a million lesson plans-but that's another story.

I have been so busy procrastinating working on school stuff, that I have had hardly any time to worry about what dish I'm bringing to the million family get-togethers that I have coming up, but I have a few ideas for what I might wear to some of these dinners.

Some are pretty casual, while some are a little more on the dressy side, so I tried to do a little bit of both, although I still wanted to look nice for the casual ones.
Especially since this is C and I's first Thanksgiving as an engaged couple, so you know there will be a million pictures taken.

Anyway, let's get into it so I can finish up this post & get back into lesson planning. #TeacherProbs

Andddd as I type this I see that I messed up my graphic...but whatever.

I love everything about this, from the simple, comfy Piko top that is instantly dressed up with the rope statement necklace from LOFT (40% off right now!)
The fringe boots have been on my wishlist forever and will probably either be on my Christmas wishlist, or my Christmas gift to myself.
And you just can't not pair all of this with a classic pair of dark-washed skinny jeans from American Eagle. These have the perfect amount of stretch & have a comfy waistband for when you overeat on Thanksgiving dinner.

I would say that this is perfect for a more casual lunch/dinner.

Okay, I'm still working on the graphic situation. I'm trying a new method of doing them, so the more I practice, the better they will get-promise. 

I adore this outfit for a little more dressy occasion.
This maroon Piko and chunky knit cardigan are just the right amount of casual and fabulous.
Adding a long, dramatic necklace also adds a little something special.
The faux leather leggings are so chic and trendy & they're best way to wear leggings to dinner without looking like you just rolled out of bed.
Add these herringbone TOMS wedges with the entire look & you will be a winner for sure, and the star of all of the family photos.

Until next time. . .



  1. There is a good chance I will be sporting a Piko top this Thanksgiving. I'll be spending it with my fiance's family. They normally cook their turkey outside near a bonfire so casual will be a must. Love both of your outfit choices!

    1. Piko tops are SO versatile! I hope you have a blast at your get-together :)

  2. I love both outfits but the second outfit is my favorite!

    This recipe looks so delicious! Thank you for sharing!
