Holy s*$%!!! Thanksgiving is only 2 more days away!
With all of the work, chaos and expense of the renovation, we really couldn’t justify the Thanksgiving trip to NYC this year. I’m definitely homesick and a little bummed. This is the first year in at least 6, that I’m not spending the holiday with my parents and immediate NY family. This is also the first year that I’m not quite as organized and/or prepared for the holiday.
Which ultimately means I have no clue what I’m wearing!
Thanksgiving in Cleveland is a really fun and casual affair. We spend it with my husband’s side of the family — all 30-50 of them (depending on the year)! As we’ve gotten older, even more chaos has been added to the mix in the form of A LOT of little kids ranging from teenagers, all the way down to newborn. I remember the first time I made the trip home to Cleveland with my then “fiancé,” Mr. THD spent the good part of our flight charting out a family tree so that I could at least attempt to keep up with all of the names and relations.
That was 13 years ago!
These days, I’m the one keeping track of new babies, birthdays and family events. My, how things have changed.
…but back to fashion!
For a laid-back, family-centric holiday revolving around food, my plan is to stick to my comfort zone — both theoretically, as well as practically! A basic blazer, a simple thin knit, jeans and over-the-knee boots are going to figure into the formula.

A totally easy-peasy, Thanksgiving outfit idea, right?
While the OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS I linked are definitely splurges, they are THE. ABSOLUTE. BEST. I’ve worn them 3 years straight and love them as much as I did when I first purchased them. The taupe/grey color is also probably the most versatile shade you can come by — they literally go with everything. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, these FAUX-SUEDE BOOTS look practically identical and are only $69!
What do you think about the DOUBLE-BREASTED BLAZER trend? I’m kind of into it. It’s a nice alternative to the standard long lapel blazer styles we’ve worn for years. I also like that the double breasted styles are cut a little roomier which makes for some good layering opportunity!
I’ve been wearing hats non-stop this fall. Even when I feel like a mess, I throw a hat on it and I instantly look/feel way more put together. The NEWSBOY CAP TREND is one I’m 100% behind — if you haven’t tried this style of hat yet, I can’t recommend it enough!
So, what are your plans for this Thanksgiving?
Equally as important — what will YOU be wearing!?
