This year for Thanksgiving, we will be spending the day at our best friends’ home for one great big celebration of delicious food and wonderful friends. This is how holidays are often done military-style. When you live far away from family because of duty stations, travel can get too expensive to go home for every single holiday. So you have to rely on friends for the warm homey feeling on the holidays. Military families know all too well how to create families away from home! So during this Thanksgiving holiday, I am so grateful for our friends, our families away from home.
We haven’t yet decided on the Thanksgiving dinner dress code. We may play dress up just for the fun of it. But if the weather turns out being glum and cold as is all too common in the North Country, we may opt for super cozy and casual. In the event that we do go dressy, I chose this knit long sleeve dress with lots of stretch to accommodate a food baby! And then I dug out my favorite red paisley blazer for that happy holiday feeling. This blazer dates back to when Isaac Mizrahi collaborated with Target. Do you all remember that? That was a long time ago! And the tall sock booties are from Parade of Shoes which I guess was a branch of Payless many years back…that’s how old they are. They may be on their last wear, however, as the right heel is all wonky. Then, I added my new Bronson Bib Necklace c/o of Chico’s as my completer piece.

Read on to see everyone’s Thanksgiving plans and stop by these fabulous ladies’ blogs, today, also.
Michelle: “On Thanksgiving, it’s all about food, family & comfort! Adding a vest to jeans & a blouse is the perfect way to make a casual outfit appropriate for Thanksgiving dinner!”
Chrissy: “Every year our family of six hops in our minivan and travels to central Illinois to celebrate Thanksgiving with my husband’s side of the family. I chose this outfit because I love the colors, as well as the reminder to be thankful.”
Kristin: “Living overseas makes it hard to be home for Thanksgiving, so this year my husband and I will attend a casual Friendsgiving. This red flannel has been in my closet FOREVER and I love it for Thanksgiving because it’s as traditionally ‘fall’ as you can get!”
Shelbee: “This year for Thanksgiving, we are joining our best friends at their house and decided we might want to dress up just for the fun of dressing up. I chose a black knit long sleeve dress with lots of stretch to accommodate for food intake. My favorite red paisley blazer to add some color and tall black boots with a modest heel. A statement necklace completes the outfit. Comfortable, chic, and fun!”
Monica: “Hey y’all! The Thanksgiving holiday will be here sooner than we think! I wanted to show one of the many outfits that I’ll be choosing from on Thanksgiving. Over the past few years I’ve loved the whole casual vibes for Thanksgiving. I also make sure to find outfit that will hide the food baby I’ll have after eating on Thanksgiving! Since the fiance and I go to two different places on Thanksgiving we eat double. With that being said, I love this top because the sleeves are such a statement that no one will be looking at your stomach. Plus, it’s a super cute top. The pants are really comfy and have stretch to them, so you won’t have to worry about your pants not being able to expand, these will expand with you lol. Check out more looks like this one on my blog Jersey Girl, Texan Heart. As always, thank you to Ada for hosting this awesome collab!”
Linda: “ I love dressing up but I always need to be comfortable enough to serve and get everything ready for our guests. This Old Navy Tunic is a fav that can be dressed up or down at will. With fun leggings and OTK boots I am fall appropriate. Adding the pearls seemed to dress it up slightly.”
Lee: “Hi, I’m Lee and my blog is Wine & Couture. This year I am hosting, for the first time, Thanksgiving Dinner at my home. I am excited to decorate and have family over to share good food with.”
Kellyann: “Our Thanksgiving plans include dinner with our family. We usually eat outside and don’t expect cold weather so this dress and booties are perfect!”
Ada: “My Thanksgiving plans are laid-back. Some of my family members work till the afternoon. But we will get together, have a bigger meal than usual, talk, drink coffee and love on each-other. I chose a semi-dressy outfit this year consisting of a thick, brick-red skirt (it has the cutest pockets) with a forest green+navy plaid shirt and some fun sparkly white booties to glam it up. Also, I chose a long coatigan (cardigan sweater) as a topper.”
Whitney: “This year I will be celebrating Thanksgiving with my family and boyfriend at my sister’s new home in Colorado Springs. I usually want to be comfortable (obviously) but a little bit dressed-up and festive, so this year I’m wearing an on trend velvet top in fall colors.”
Jennie: “We are looking forward to having our four sons, daughter-in-law, and dogs together under one roof again for Thanksgiving! My autumnal colored shift dress is not only stylish with its bell sleeves, but also works well with leggings for a comfortable look that will disquise my holiday food baby!”
