I am always so excited about dressing up for Thanksgiving even though the tweet I saw last year is one of the truest things I have ever seen:
There really is almost no point in dressing up because we are just with family at home. I suppose it can be more fun to dress up if you have a lot of family coming that you don’t always see but for us, it is literally just us with the occasional add ons. Yet every year I am determined to dress up and usually recruit all the other girls to dress up to. I love when they message me asking what I am going to wear, like today one of my litter sister’s asked.
I am normally very adamant about wearing a dress. Why? I honestly don’t know, I just always want to wear a fall dress and boots. This year, my mind is completely opposite. This may be partially because we are spending Thanksgiving at our parent’s house in Arizona. I seriously cannot wait. I am unusually excited for Thanksgiving this year. I think maybe because it is my first one in a long time being single so I do not need to share my time, I get to stay with my family Wednesday night to Sunday night.
Anyways, this year I am thinking jeans, booties, and a cute sweater. I haven’t quite decided what sweater yet, I cannot make up my mind but I am working on it. In the meantime, I was looking around at Target and decided to put together five potential looks for you all. All cute, but on the more casual side. Check it out, all linked below!
This yellow sweater is sooo cute and only $15! This one I have on is a small, but I think I would prefer a medium so it can be a little more oversized. They didn’t have a medium at my normal Target so I am going to go on a hunt for one tomorrow. This would be so cute with dark jeans like the ones I have on and a pair of brown OTK boots or booties (this would even be a good sweater for the spring to wear with shorts). Linked here! *disclaimer: this sweater is much brighter in person, but with my filter it looks a little faded.
I really loved this next look! The colors are perfect for fall and again would go great with a pair of brown booties. I have a few button up shirts that I have tied at the bottom so when I found this one comes tied already, I was excited to try it on. The burnt red pairs really great with the gray cardigan, plus the cardigan can go over almost anything. Linked here: Top | Cardigan
This fluffy sweater is SO FUN! I love the pink and it is just funky and different. Not only would it be cute with dark blue jeans like I have on, but it would also pair well with black jeans or even white! For this one I would pair more of a nude shoe with it. I would dress this sweater up more with nude pumps. Linked here!… NOOO! Now all of a sudden Target doesn’t have this sweater online, but it is in store I promise!
I was so surprised that I liked this look! I am not a turtleneck kind of girl but the black and white stripes pulled me in. The sleeves on this top go to your elbows and it is just so cute and classic! As for this olive sweater, I have been seeing so many bloggers with chenille cardigans and I finally know why. They are so soft!! I didn’t even want to take this one off. This look would go best with again dark blue jeans or black jeans and paired with black or brown booties. If you go with brown I would suggest a brown belt and tucking the top in (best choice for that would be high waist jeans). Linked here: Top | Cardigan
This last look is technically more dressy but also the comfiest. The pants are joggers but a nice material, like I could wear these to work if I wanted to and I may go back to get them. I also loved this leopard chiffon top (but it is kind of a thicker chiffon) paired under a cardigan. Layering is always great especially since the last few Thanksgivings, especially in SoCal, have been warm but it cools off at night. This look would still looked dressed up and put together if you took the cardigan off for a bit. I would pair with black or gold pumps or pointy flats or mules. Booties could work but may be a little off with the joggers. This cardigan by the way, reminds me a little of my Topshop one but a WAY BETTER price point. All linked here: Top | Cardigan | Joggers
If you were in need of an outfit, I hope these help give you some inspo! I hope you all have a great and safe Thanksgiving!
