Happy Monday, everyone! With November just two days away, I wanted to show you some options for casual fall outfits for Thanksgiving.
The loved ones in my circles of family and friends are always dressed in more casual outfits for Thanksgiving.
The meal is most often at home, with football games surrounding it…laughter…and outdoor fun (unless the weather prevents it).
On Saturday, Linlee shared her story in the comments about dressing nice even when an event is casual.
Reader Lorrie admitted to being a member of TEAM OVERDRESSED, and I feel like I am a founder!
Though Thanksgiving may be casual, I still desire to set aside the team jerseys with athletic pants, and look my very casual best in one of my options for outfits for Thanksgiving.
So, let’s discuss this…and I will begin with what I am wearing today.
CASUAL FALL OUTFITS FOR THANKSGIVING: TODAY’S LOOK
I am not going to host this year, because I do not know how mobile I will be at that point.
My foot surgery is one week from today.
I could get away with going super casual and use the surgery as an excuse. But, I do not plan on doing that.
I plan to wear this to my son’s house (his wife has graciously taken up the hostessing role)…except one foot will not be in a gold ballet flat! I hope a boot, but do not know when that happens.
This FLAP POCKET CARDIGAN IN GOLDEN MAIZE was recently purchased at Talbot’s on sale and makes for perfect casual fall outfits for Thanksgiving.
Of course, this is in my warm autumn palette, but I do feel like an autumn leaf when I wear it…it makes me smile.
My preferred way to wear it is with the FULTON WASH JEGGINGS….like the picture.
However, I might be in these because of the boot……
I still love these WIDE LEG JEANS and believe they will fit over the boot better.
Talbots continues to have some lovely items on sale that would work well for casual fall outfits for Thanksgiving….just go to TALBOTS SALE.
Today is the final day for the current BIG SALE HAPPENING AT TALBOTS.
I believe this is elevated casual style and perfect for most Thanksgiving celebrations.
In my feature outfit, the Vince Camuto scarf, Eileen Fisher brown tank, and the green Brahmin crossbody are all past purchases…sorry no links for these.
But, there is a link for my comfortable, fabulous, gold ballet flats! These are the GOLD LEATHER BAILEY BALLET FLAT FROM EASY SPIRIT.
CASUAL FALL OUTFITS FOR THANKSGIVING: WHAT WILL I TAKE
Now, that I know what my choice is in my outfits for Thanksgiving, I am preparing for what I might take.
Most of my traditional dishes require much preparation and standing. I am considering cooking and freezing something this week.
But, rather than the pumpkin pie I often make for Thanksgiving (one of my sons loves it), I may go with something super easy and super good.
Ice cream pie happens at our house all year long. I have even made a peppermint version at Christmas.
For this one, I make a graham cracker crust with the Cinnamon/Sugar version of the graham crackers.
Then I take the softened ice cream and fill the crust pretty full…back into the freezer it goes.
Once hard, I cover it with caramel sauce…back into the freezer.
Before taking it over, I will whip some whipping cream with a little pumpkin spice and touch of sugar.
It is yummy.
I have most of the ingredients already and waiting. I have worked hard to think forward and do many holiday preparations before the surgery.
Another excellent retailer with options for outfits for Thanksgiving is Dillard’s.
Also, if you search their site for Southern Living, you will see loving serving dishes for your Thanksgiving meal or to take as a hostess gift.
And which of us doesn’t love a salad set called All Dressed Up and Ready to Go!
How do you typically dress for Thanksgiving?
If I can help with more ideas, just let me know.
Are you also a casual fall outfits for Thanksgiving lady?
We still have time to shop together!
Join in the conversation…hopefully come back tomorrow…and always…
