Happy Tuesday! I’ve teamed up with my blogger babes for this four-part holiday series, featuring outfits for the occasions this November & December. Today’s feature is all about what to wear for Thanksgiving dinner. Read along and be sure to check out my fellow bloggers’ looks for more inspiration ;]

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where you either dress to the nines or dress as casually as physically possible, depending on your family tradition and habits. In my family, were on the cusp of looking presentable while feeling comfortable when it comes to dressing for dinner. Not gonna lie, the pressure is on for me – in my own mind – to find that perfect balance…because I decided to write a blog about dressing for each and every day and occasion.

So here’s what I came up with: the comfortable yet aesthetically pleasing ensemble for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. All the pieces I’m wearing are comfortable, from top to bottom and yes, that includes the booties. I made the mistake one year of wearing tighter pants which resulted in the button popping off and spinning like a quarter on the wood floor, coincidentally at the conclusion of dinner and during that silence which comes with a full meal. It couldn’t be any more humiliating. Therefore, stretchy pants = more room to grow and a sweater to cover up the bloat.

A denim jacket up top and booties on the bottom are two pieces that make this outfit casual yet put-together. I opted for curing my now shorter locks and adding a gold-plated bib necklace for a dressier appearance, considering those two parts of my outfit will be showing the most at the table when we sit down. And there you have it, an outfit looking a lot less planned than it actually was. It’s all about the work that goes into the look behind-the-scenes, am I right? Shop similar below:
