6 Easy Looks for Thanksgiving Weekend

Here’s my case for Thanksgiving being the best holiday: it’s centered on two wonderful things – family and delicious food. But most importantly, it is devoid of the pressure to buy someone a gift! I know your family has issues (so does mine) and I know someone will probably burn something (it happens), but overall, time spent telling stories and sharing childhood memories over a piece of homemade pie is about the best way to spend an afternoon.

Just for fun, I thought I’d share six easy, comfortable looks for your Thanksgiving weekend plans. I’ve broken it down to three scenarios – Thanksgiving lunch (day look), Thanksgiving dinner (evening look), and Black Friday look (day after Thanksgiving…and whatever you choose to do on that day!)

So let’s get going. Here are two looks that achieve the trifecta of ease, comfort, and style. The key here is to layer (because you never know how high Grandma has that heater blazing this year) and use different textures and tones. As a bonus, the sneakers will allow for that mid-afternoon stroll around the neighborhood for fresh air.

My next couple of looks are perfect for an evening Thanksgiving dinner, whether that will happen at home or out on the town. While they are each blazer-forward looks, one is a bit dressier and the other is relaxed and fun. I’m really loving the 90’s influenced midi-skirt/blazer/cowgirl boots combo right now!

And finally, choose your day-after-Thanksgiving fighter: on the left, we have the chic shopper meets Sporty Spice look (she is ready to beat the crowds for an early coffee and Black Friday sales!) and on the right, we have 70’s Horsegirl (she is ready to sleep in, grab a late brunch, and then go for a stroll around the park with her bestie *swoon*). Who are you gonna be this year??

I hope this gives you an idea or two for getting dressed this Thanksgiving. Easy dressing…while you chow down on that turkey and…dressing…okay, I’m done. Hope it’s a good one! 🦃
