Hello! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Unless you are a blogger or a blog reader, you cannot understand how supportive people in the blog community are. Your messages this week have truly lifted my spirits. My Dad is still in the hospital but he started his first round of chemo last night.
Our Thanksgiving tradition is usually Thursday with my husband’s family here in town. His sister lives here and she hosts our meal around 3 p.m. We spend the morning trying to get some exercise, cooking, watching the parade, and usually cleaning and doing laundry.
We are lucky to have off on Wednesday, too. Last year I tried something different. I went ahead and decorated for Christmas on Wednesday.
On Friday, we usually travel just an hour to my parents’ house with my side of the family and we do it all again. When I come home, my house is ready for Christmas. That’s kind of how I am. I am a Thanksgiving purist but as soon as it’s over, bring on Christmas!
What are your traditions? How do you feel about early Christmas decorations?
So, let’s talk about Thanksgiving outfits. I like to have two cute and comfortable outfits for my two days. I also usually spend Saturday in my hometown starting my shopping for small business Saturday. I love shopping locally in my city and in my hometown. It’s a great way to buy your gifts, in my opinion.
This year, I am planning my outfits mostly around my most comfy pair of jeans. I don’t really like many of my pants now for fall. I think I’m in desperate need for something other than leggings.
I like to wear what I call Thanksgiving colors. We are pretty casual on both sides of the family.
Here are my favorite Nordstrom Vigoss jeans, my clogs, and a cute cornflower blue peasant shirt that I bought at consignment.
Here is a leggings option. I have this cocoa brown lace bottomed tunic and brown leggings.
I think camo is a good option for Thanksgiving.
I think I like the second pair of booties better for the camo.
I think camo would look good with burgundy.
This mustard yellow velvet top might be a contender.
If it warms up I may wear this poncho thing. I always get hot if I’m in the kitchen!
What do you plan to wear? I look through my closet and pull out all the colors I like and then go from there!
Thanks for reading!
