Last Minute Thanksgiving Outfit

Happy Monday, friends! It is a short week!

In case you missed it, I wrote a rare Saturday post about the life lessons I’ve learned so far in my 20s. I’d love for you to check it out!

How was your weekend? Two high school friends got married this weekend in a beautiful ceremony at Rose Hill Manor in Leesburg, Virginia, I crossed off several Georgetown tasks from my to-do list, and I managed to watch all nine of the Friends Thanksgiving episodes—ten if you count the episode in season two where they somewhat address Thanksgiving.

It really doesn’t feel like Thanksgiving to me until I’ve watched Monica and Ross compete for the Geller cup, seen Chandler’s wicker shoes, and cheer on Emma in her Thanksgiving-day beauty pageant. (Anyone else think The One With Chandler in a Box is by far the worst Thanksgiving episode?) I have to say, now that I’ve celebrated the holiday with some of my favorite fictional friends, I am really excited for the real deal this Thursday.

What are your Thanksgiving traditions?

My family celebrates here in Northern Virginia with my dad’s side of the family. We have a true dinner later in the day, but all meet for appetizers and cocktail hour around 4 pm. Even though I’m not a huge football fan, a lot of people in my family are, so we always have the games on. #HTTR

Because there are so many of us—27 this year!—we have at least two turkeys, and my Mom makes the best pumpkin muffins. (Which she started doing long before pumpkin was a trendy vegetable!) I also fill up my plate with stuffing—anyone else a sucker for Stouffer’s?—mashed potatoes, broccoli casserole, and, of course, carbs in bread form.

I love how noncommercial Thanksgiving is, and really enjoy the time at home after the holiday pulling out Christmas decorations, watching Christmas movies, and getting ready for the most wonderful time of the year.

Though I have to say, Thanksgiving snuck up on me more so this year than most. Do you feel the same way?

Because I don’t think to plan my Thanksgiving outfits ahead of time, I generally don’t purchase anything new for the holiday, and instead opt for tried-and-true pieces in my wardrobe. I am sure you also own some variation of these items as well, and thus can easily create this look for a last minute, casual Thanksgiving outfit. My family tends to keep our turkey day feast pretty casual, so I generally wear a pair of broken in jeans and a comfy sweater or long-sleeve t-shirt and blanket scarf combo like I did here. If it’s a warmer Thanksgiving day, I might opt for the dress version of this outfit instead.

A side note, if you’re looking for a good pair of booties, I can’t get enough of these Vince Camuto Peera Booties. The cutouts are such a cute detail, and they are on sale now! Treat yourself to a little early Black Friday shopping. I find that they run true to size.

    YAY for a short work week! I have 2 days of work – then going home to PA! My parents always host Thanksgiving each year and I LOVE staying at home with all of my family… eating and laughing.. then eating later lol! I have NO clue what I’m going to wear yet, but what’s Thanksgiving without a blanket scarf or plaid?? (Oh and love your outfit! So simple but totally fall!)
