I am experiencing mixed emotions about the time change. On the one end, winter is coming and on the other I think it’s midnight and I look at the clock and it’s 5:45 pm (#confused). A few things are clear however: shorter days, cooler temperatures and cozy clothing is IN! Give me all the comfortable clothing (& food) just in time for Thanksgiving.
Last year we had Mack’s parents in town for Thanksgiving and it was great! We cooked a big, traditional dinner at home and it was perfect. Mack and I were so happy to host our first big holiday in our home. Now one year later, we are headed to Dallas to visit my sister-in-law and her husband for a few days! No matter where we celebrate- food, football and our puppies are always in the picture. Just how we like it!
With food and family as the focus of the day it can be tricky to determine what to wear as everyone’s family traditions can be different. I am accustomed to casual days spent circulating the house from the kitchen to the dining room to the couch and around again- with football games running in the background all day long. I feel like it can be a tough balance to dress for a holiday while maintaining comfortability. This grey sweater tunic from The Mutineer Threads is the answer to that perfectly put together look while still allowing for that second slice of pie. I am obsessed with the added length, asymmetrical cut and love the fact that the cowl neck/hoodie combination is removable. The faux-leather trim is the perfect detail that dresses up the piece just enough! Pair with your favorite jeans or leggings, OTK heeled boots and a fun patterned clutch and you’re set for Thanksgiving Day. The key to dressing comfortable but still feeling dressed up is accomplished through those final two touches- the heeled boots and fun clutch- they work to tie together the overall look.

What does Thanksgiving Day for your family look like? Are you having family visit or traveling to visit them instead? No matter what plans your Thanksgiving day holds, I hope you can remain grateful for those who gather around the table- no matter how big or small it may be.
Happy, happy Friday! Thanks for reading today.
