What to Wear For Thanksgiving: The Holiday Series





Hello my friends! Somehow it's already time to be planning Thanksgiving, while thinking about Christmas. In just a little over a week, my family and i will be traveling to central Illinois to share Thanksgiving with my in laws! Yup. We are farm country bound and I can't wait! Of course there is much to do before we leave, such as: get life in order here and then shop for Christmas gifts to exchange. That's been a tradition for several years and no one objects to forgoing the task and cost of shipping at Christmas.



Now, how does this last minute, non-planner already have her Thanksgiving outfit all planned out?? Well, I owe that fabulous push to Ada at Elegance and Mommyhood for doing yet another fun collaboration - The Holiday Series -, and Seriously Happy Tees for hosting a flash sale on these adorable tees back in September!

I know these collabs are a lot of hard work on the host so I'll say that I'm THANKFUL for my friends in blogging who invite me along to join in on their fun! Be sure to tune in over the next few weeks as more posts are added!


***My Thanksgiving Outfit***




Y'all. Serisouly? What's up with the mail that I forgot to remove from the outside pocket of my handbag? #details


Ok. Let's chat about this outfit for a moment, where lots of my favorites are coming together. Now, I realize that it may be cooler in Illinois than our recent temps here in Georgia, but I'll just bring a flannel to swap out with the kimono if necessary.

The Shirley kimono was a birthday gift from a friend and I've already styled it over a jumpsuit, blue denim and a white tee, a dress and now this tee in the perfect color, referred to as "clay". I'm sure there will be more options...

The tee is slightly fitted, a great length and a more silky feel than I would have expected. It's nice! If you've even visited my blog twice you've probably seen the green jeans. Those are long gone, but I'm linking other options below. The same goes for my stone colored ankle boots from Clarks.

Let's see these beautiful ladies once more, as well as hear snippets of what they're doing for Thanksgiving...

-----------------------------------------------------------

Read on to see everyone's Thanksgiving plans and stop by these fabulous ladies' blogs, today, also.

Michelle: "On Thanksgiving, it's all about food, family & comfort! Adding a vest to jeans & a blouse is the perfect way to make a casual outfit appropriate for Thanksgiving dinner!"

Chrissy: "Every year our family of six hops in our minivan and travels to central Illinois to celebrate Thanksgiving with my husband’s side of the family. I chose this outfit because I love the colors, as well as the reminder to be thankful."

Kristin: "Living overseas makes it hard to be home for Thanksgiving, so this year my husband and I will attend a casual Friendsgiving. This red flannel has been in my closet FOREVER and I love it for Thanksgiving because it's as traditionally 'fall' as you can get!"

Shelbee: "This year for Thanksgiving, we are joining our best friends at their house and decided we might want to dress up just for the fun of dressing up.  I chose a black knit long sleeve dress with lots of stretch to accommodate for food intake.  My favorite red paisley blazer to add some color and tall black boots with a modest heel.  A statement necklace completes the outfit.  Comfortable, chic, and fun!"

Monica: "Hey y'all!  The Thanksgiving holiday will be here sooner than we think!  I wanted to show one of the many outfits that I'll be choosing from on Thanksgiving.  Over the past few years I've loved the whole casual vibes for Thanksgiving.  I also make sure to find outfit that will hide the food baby I'll have after eating on Thanksgiving!  Since the fiance and I go to two different places on Thanksgiving we eat double.  With that being said, I love this top because the sleeves are such a statement that no one will be looking at your stomach.  Plus, it's a super cute top.  The pants are really comfy and have stretch to them, so you won't have to worry about your pants not being able to expand, these will expand with you lol.  Check out more looks like this one on my blog Jersey Girl, Texan Heart.  As always, thank you to Ada for hosting this awesome collab!​"

Linda: " I love dressing up but I always need to be comfortable enough to serve and get everything ready for our guests. This Old Navy Tunic is a fav that can be dressed up or down at will.  With fun leggings and OTK boots I am fall appropriate.  Adding the pearls seemed to dress it up slightly."

Lee: "Hi, I’m Lee and my blog is Wine & Couture.  This year I am hosting, for the first time, Thanksgiving Dinner at my home.  I am excited to decorate and have family over to share good food with."

Kellyann: "Our Thanksgiving plans include dinner with our family.  We usually eat outside and don't expect cold weather so this dress and booties are perfect!"

Ada: "My Thanksgiving plans are laid-back. Some of my family members work till the afternoon. But we will get together, have a bigger meal than usual, talk, drink coffee and love on each-other. I chose a semi-dressy outfit this year consisting of a thick, brick-red skirt (it has the cutest pockets) with a forest green+navy plaid shirt and some fun sparkly white booties to glam it up. Also, I chose a long coatigan (cardigan sweater) as a topper."

Whitney: "This year I will be celebrating Thanksgiving with my family and boyfriend at my sister's new home in Colorado Springs.  I usually want to be comfortable (obviously) but a little bit dressed-up and festive, so this year I'm wearing an on trend velvet top in fall colors."
Jennie: "We are looking forward to having our four sons, daughter-in-law, and dogs together under one roof again for Thanksgiving! My autumnal colored shift dress is not only stylish with its bell sleeves, but also works well with leggings for a comfortable look that will disquise my holiday food baby!"

  1. Chrissy, this is, of course, the perfect tee for Thanksgiving! I have been on the hunt for a "thankful" or a "grateful" tee for some time now and I am just not having luck with sizing and neckline. I prefer a vee or scoop neck. Perhaps by Thanksgiving, I will have found one! I am loving the pairing of tee shirt with jeans and kimono. Totally my vibe. You look fabulous, my friend!

    1. Thank you! I tend to lean towards a tee or scoop as well. My last tee made me feel like I was wearing an unintentional choker. This one enticed me with the $15 flash sale! Thankfully, it's actually comfortable.

  5. Now that I read this post and saw your outfit in detail, I realized that pretty 'cardigan' is actually a kimono, so I love it more. The colors in your cute, beautiful, casual Thanksgiving look couldn't be more Fall. I love every piece you have on and want it all head to toe (except your mail lol), especially the tee and kimono. Your IL Thanksgiving plans sound great!

    Have a good night friend and thank you for the sweet words and for thanking me. But it is true, it is A LOT of work!
