Thanksgiving #ootd inspiration

Thanksgiving Day #ootd, inspiration

Happy Thanksgiving week! I'm so excited that it's finally here! Mainly because 1) my family is coming in for the week starting tomorrow and 2) I don't have to be back at the office until the 30th! THE 30TH!!!! How freaking amazing is that?! If you're like me, you are scrambling to get your house in order, as well as get ahead for the week so you can free up your time to just relax and enjoy it with your family! That usually ends up meaning no time to figure out what the heck you are going to wear! I thought I would kick off this holiday week by sharing some outfits I thought were Thanksgiving-week worthy regardless of whether you normally go a little dressy, a little relaxed, or somewhere in between! Let's get started!


Our Thanksgivings are normally pretty low key, so I don't normally dress up. If I had to, though, I would be all about luxe textures like lace, faux suede, and sequins!

Holiday style, oversized sweater, sequin leggings
Outfit formula: Oversized sweater (option here, under $40 option here) | Sequin Leggings (exact here, budget option here) | Suede pumps (exact here)

Holiday style, lace skirt, moto jacket
Outfit formula: Moto jacket (exact here) | Statement necklace (exact in gold here) | Lace skirt (options here, here, and here)

holiday style, faux suede dress, booties
Outfit formula: Faux suede dress (exact here) | Fleece lined tights (exact here) | Wedge booties (option)


Let's be real, eating marathons are HARD! I like to hide my post-turkey bloat with relaxed sweaters, easy layers, and my favorite destroyed jeans. This is usually more like my Thanksgiving style normally looks!

holiday style, destroyed denim, buffalo plaid vest
Outfit formula: Buffalo plaid vest (options here and here) | Neutral sweater (options here and here) | Destroyed jeans (my favorite here)

holiday style, destroyed denim, oversized sweater
Outfit formula: Cold shoulder sweater (exact here) | Destroyed jeans (my favorite here) | Cut out booties (exact here)

holiday style, destroyed denim, plaid and pearls
Outfit formula: Pearls (option) | Plaid (option) | Destroyed jeans (my favorite here) | Leopard pumps (exact here, lower heel option here)


If it's too cold for air-conditioned jeans, then I just turn to the comfort of my favorite leggings. Anything + leggings = an outfit, am I right? Vests, scarves, and over the knee boots are my favorite things to layer with leggings.

Not your blue denim:

And last but not least are the outfits that involve denim, but not your typical blue-colored denim. I've already confessed my strong love for olive skinnies. You can see 9 other outfits with my olive skinnies in this post here. Wine colored skinnies are also a long time favorite. I didn't include any in the outfits below, but you can always check back in this remix post here if you need some wine colored skinnies inspiration!

holiday style, black skinnies and blue stripe top, statement necklace
Outfit formula: Ruffle-Sleeved Top (exact) | Faded black skinnies (exact) | Studded heels (exact)

Photo heavy by light text for today's post! Whatever your plans are for this week, I hope you spend it with the people you love the most and pigging out with your most favorite foods ever!! I'll be taking a couple of days off from blogging this week, but I'll be back tomorrow with a Black Friday Bonanza linkup (that you should totally join, BTW) and then I'll be sure to post my Black Friday haul later in the week! Stay tuned!
