Thanksgiving Countdown

We are t-minus two weeks away from my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving!  Thanksgiving has been my favorite holiday for as long as I can remember.  I think that it is such an amazing holiday that often gets overlooked.  People go straight from Halloween to Christmas & usually entirely forget Thanksgiving.  Sadly even when people do remember it, they typically just talk about the food.  All of this has always bummed me out because I feel like people forget about what Thanksgiving is actually about.  Thanksgiving is a great time to come together with friends & family to celebrate what we are thankful for in our lives.  My family does a pretty relaxed day, which I love.  My mom cooks, I bake, & then whoever wants to come is more then welcome to.  There's no fuss, stress, or pressure, & it is a really fun day.  Here are some pictures from last year's celebration.

(The food is a yummy bonus!)

So now that you've heard my rant about Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to share some outfit ideas for the big day. I'm doing this early because I figured it would give everyone some ideas (including myself)!

Whether you're going dressy or causal I have options for both.  The dressy look is perfect for those of you hitting a party, restaurant, or anywhere else you would need to be dressed up.  I am in love with this dress, it's such a pretty piece.  I feel like its tan shade is very Thanksgiving & the silver in the arm pattern adds a little something extra.  The casual look is perfect for a more low key environment, watching football before dinner anyone?  This sweater looks so cozy & the elbow patches are a chic touch.  Tailored skinny jeans & riding boots finish off a perfect outfit to spend the day in. 

I hope everyone is looking forward to Thanksgiving as much as I am.  I know sometimes the holidays can be a stressful time, but I hope everyone can enjoy the day.  Now that I've told you why I love this holiday & shown you my fashion take on it, look for my post about what I am thankful for this year, coming up soon!

What are you doing for Thanksgiving?  Do you already have an outfit ready?
