Friday Favorites – Turkey Day Fashion!

Happy Friday!  Or should I say, Happy Six Days Until Thanksgiving!  This week’s Friday Favorites is a little hastily written, as somehow the week got away from me and I didn’t have a lot of time to plan it out.  I want to show a few of my favorite styles for Thanksgiving.  Every family or group of friends does Thanksgiving a little differently – some are formal, some are sweatpants-casual, and some are in between.  I have a few ideas below for some great Turkey Day outfits in a range of styles.

This outfit leans more towards the casual side, but is still very stylish AND comfortable, which for a lot of us, is very important on a day with lots of food!  The camo leggings are a few years old, but still very popular and easy to find.  The field jacket is from Old Navy, I featured it in this earlier post.  Throw on a plain t-shirt in a neutral color, or even a cute graphic tee, and you are fashionable, comfortable, and prepared for cooler weather or potentially being too warm and losing the jacket.  I would either wear this with some neutral booties, or for even more comfort, some stylish sneakers, like Converse or Adidas.

I love this cozy vest from Bearpaw.  It looks great with jeans, a skirt, or even over a dress.  The color is so neutral it can go with almost anything.  Some cute booties or even over the knee boots will give this vest a lot of style.  If your weather will be chillier for the holiday, this would be a great choice.

This flannel plaid dress is so stylish and on trend.  Plaid is so big this fall, and I love wearing this with some thick tights or leggings, and riding boots.  You could also do a bootie or even a cute winter boot if it is cold and/or snowy where you live.  The belt also keeps it from looking too oversized and gives it shape.  This is from Eddie Bauer, and the flannel is extra thick and therefore very warm.  I got this last year but they have some similar ones here.  This would “dress” up your look a bit for the holiday. (See what I did there)

This picture didn’t come out great, because I couldn’t find a good dark background.  This is a cream colored sweater I bought last spring on clearance from Loft.  It is a crossover or wrap style, and is so soft and luxurious feeling.  This looks great with some black dress or ponte pants, and black booties, if your Thanksgiving gathering is more dressy.

And just for fun, if your gathering is super casual, here is where you can find some great comfy cozy lounge clothes!

Everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving, wherever it may take you!

Blue Embroidery

Happy Friday! It is raining so hard here today, it would have been a good day to stay home and read a book.

There is nothing particularly special or exciting about this outfit, but it makes a nice, casual, conservative outfit for work, if your workplace allows jeans. The top is a simple peasant top in off-white, with a lot of dark blue embroidered details, from Belk. This is from last year but they have a similar one that would look great. You know I am always talking about looking for pieces with interesting details! I thought it looked good with these dark indigo skinny jeans from American Eagle. Here is this year’s version. Be sure to balance your look-slimmer bottoms need looser tops, and loose bottoms (like palazzo pants or boyfriend jeans) need a more streamlined and fitted top.

The booties are one of my favorites, although I don’t wear them as much once the weather turns really cold. Because of the grommet holes, you can’t really wear socks with these, and my feet just get too cold in the winter! I wear them a lot in the fall, and on milder winter days. They are by Sam Edelman, and so comfortable. The neutral color also means they will go with almost anything. I bought these last year and couldn’t find any similar in this brand, but here is a similar, and very affordable, pair by Rebecca Minkoff.

I hope everyone enjoys the weekend with some fun fall activities!
