I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away.  Where has the year gone?  Thank you for your amazing response to my Thanksgiving Tablescape.  I’ve had a lot of questions about what I was wearing and is that what would actually.  So I thought I’d do a post on What to Wear for Thanksgiving.  I also have a fun giveaway for you!

To answer the question, yes.  I do tend to dress up for holidays because I want them to feel special.  I cook all. the. time.  So because I want this meal and occasion to feel more special than any other Thursday, typically I do dress up a bit and my family does the same.  The girls wear uniforms to school, so it is fun for them to dress up, too.  I’m planning on wearing this winter white chevron sweater, winter white skirt and my favorite boots.  If the weather is on the warm side, I’ll be wearing my favorite dress.  Love this plaid!  If I were to be more casual, I’d wear my favorite camo jeans or cargo pants, a great sweater and booties.

How do you dress for Thanksgiving?  Do you amp it up a bit or keep it casual?  I have lots of ideas for both in the boutique below!
