Casual Thanksgiving Style

At our house, we abide by the comfort first rule on holidays. I’ve always admired the families that use Thanksgiving and Christmas as an opportunity to look their best for family dinners, the class and elegance they have. But my family and me? We opt for comfort… and whatever will still fit after the feast we eat.:)

That’s why I love this outfit so much. I don’t feel like I’m bumming it, but I’m still dressed nicer than I would be every other afternoon of my life. I’m in a traditionally fall outfit and still super comfortable and still warm enough for any type of weather. Which basically means this is the perfect thing to wear for a casual Thanksgiving, right?;)

(Also, helloooooo mountain sunset, I like lookin’ at you.)

  I love it layered with a neutral sweater for the time spent inside the house. It’s easy to remove the flannel if needed, and I definitely look relaxed. Plaid itself just lends to a festive vibe.

If we go outside to toss the football (the typical Edwards thing to do on a holiday) then throwing on a vest kicks the warmth up a level. This also carries the outfit into the night, perfect for marshmallow roasting time.

This sweater is from the men’s department at J. Crew Factory and my husband and I both own multiple pairs. It’s actually on my Christmas wishlist to get more – it’s that comfortable. I might just repeat this exact same outfit for Christmas, switching out the flannel above for this red and green version (which my husband and I both own… #twinsies). It’s also almost 50% off right now! We both wear the slim fit version and I can pull off either a medium or a large, the medium fitting more shirt-like and the large more so like a tunic. I even tricked him into showing this shirt off in this post a couple weeks back:)

How in the world is Thanksgiving only one week away? We’re hosting it for our families this year, which I absolutely love to do! We hosted last year too, so I’m just aiming for a smoother run of it this time around. Bring on all the cooking, this girl is ready!
