Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week?! This year sure has flown by! Our Thanksgiving tradition involves gathering with my husband’s family, as well as our kids and my siblings. I’ve put together some classic looks for our Thanksgiving festivities that combine a casual look for comfort and function.
I try not to go overboard when it comes to Thanksgiving style, because after that huge meal and stuffing my face all day, I want to be comfortable in my clothes for the rest of the evening while we’re celebrating the holiday with our family. I’m glad that Blair, an online clothing company, offers such a variety of clothing that not only looks good, but feels comfortable while I’m wearing it too.
I love that the clothing at Blair.com is stylish, functional and comfortable. Their clothing is meant to stretch, for a better fit, which makes online shopping and picking the right size so much easier.
I’m in charge of making the appetizers and hors d’oeuvres on Thanksgiving. So, of course that means that I wear one outfit early in the day while I’m cooking, and another when it’s time to head out to our Thanksgiving dinner! My go-to clothing for getting things done always consists of jeans and a sweatshirt. I just love the Dusty Seafoam color of this Scandia Fleece Jacket and it pairs perfectly with my Flat Waist Boot Cut Jeans.
When it’s time for us to leave, I’ll change my outfit to include an Essential Stretch Tank and a Shaker Cardigan. I have not quite decided if I will wear the Boysenberry or Ivory Shaker Cardigan yet, or which pants I will pair it with. Perhaps you can help me decide?
I’m kind of loving the Boysenberry Shaker Cardigan, but I’m also loving the look (below) of the Ivory Shaker Cardigan paired with the Brown Stretch Leggings and the Winter White Quilted Car Coat with my knee high boots. Let me know which outfit you like the best!
I’m really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. We have a tradition that my kids hold dearly, and they love that we gather with my in laws every year for a feast. We start early in the day, around 3pm and snack on appetizers and hors d’oeuvres. When the turkey is done cooking, we carve it and set up a large buffet table full of turkey, bacon wrapped ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, corn, rolls and whatever else we’ve planned for that year’s menu.
Everyone in the family makes their plate and finds a seat. Once everyone is sitting, my husband’s aunt says a prayer, and we dig in. During dinner, we share what we are thankful for, and it most definitely involves the very family that surrounds us. After dinner, we have dessert – usually delicious homemade pies freshly baked by my husband’s cousin.
Throughout the day and evening, we spend time together, reminiscing on the year that has passed, and then we usually make plans for our Christmas celebration with the family.
Thanksgiving is the holiday that I most look forward to, simply because of the wonderful tradition of family gathering surrounded by delicious food. What are your Thanksgiving traditions?
