Thanksgiving Outfit: Three Ways

For me there are a few things I have to consider when I'm planning a Thanksgiving outfit, but first you need to know that I enjoy "dressing up" for holidays, but most of my gatherings don't really call for that-so I have to compromise-elevate the casual, if you will.
 So for my outfit, like I said, I have a few parameters.
1. It's got to be comfortable: if I'm going to stuff my face with all the turkey, ham, dressing, and pies that it will hold then I have to have clothes that will expand with my waistline.
2.It's got to be festive: I need to have something that fits the theme; here I went with warm textures & the orange hints at Fall foliage.
3.It's got to have layers: Y'all have heard me preach this time & time again on Southern & Style, but in Alabama you never know whether it's going to be ninety degrees or forty degrees so you've got to be prepared for it all.
 I started out with basics for the first layer; a pair of my favorite jeggings that are stretchy but still have a denim feel & are the perfect dark wash.
Then I added a orange tunic top, it's long enough to cover your bum but still looks polished.

 If it's really cool outside, you can add a heavier cardigan, like this one with the beautiful plum, yellow, and orange detailing.
 I wanted to keep the accessories simple but still make a statement so I chose my favorite Mother-of-Pearl Kendra Scott earrings & a similar style necklace from a boutique.
Of course I decided on riding boots because they're comfortable & cute!



 Another option, if it's not quite cold enough for the heavy cardigan, but not warm enough to go with just the tunic my favorite answer to that problem is a cape.
This one has beautiful red & blue detailing on a cream background and the fringe provides awesome texture and interest!
Plus, it's like wrapping up in a blanket but socially acceptable!

Earrings (Similar)
Heavy Cardigan (Similar, Similar)
Fringe Cape (Similar)

A lot of these pieces are older (the earrings & both the cardigan and cape) so I had to link similar items, but the idea is the same no matter the pattern of the top layer.
This outfit meets all my criteria; comfortable, layer-able, and festive!

What are you wearing for Thanksgiving?
Let me know below!

Until next time. . .
