Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Will you be all dressed up on this thankful day?!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite American Holidays! When I first moved to the US I didn’t really comprehend the whole concept…..a big family gathering similar to Christmas but no gifts?! Once I attended and hosted numerous Thanksgivings I began to really cherish this wonderful celebration for families and friends to come together and be thankful for what we have.

Whether you like to dress up or stay casual there is often a conversation about what you are wearing to Thanksgiving Dinner. Some families get all dolled up while others literally hang around in their pajamas. I say each to their own and whatever you want to do works. I love a good excuse to dress up but also love the idea if you are not feeling it then you can go super casual too!

I am a big fan of dresses as they are so simple and easy to wear and can be roomy enough for post-dinner relaxation! Lately my friends and I have been talking about where to get dresses. Sometimes it can be challenging to find the right one. I have put together a few options for you to peruse! I am partial to the autumnal trends such as floral, cozy knits and fall colors before it’s time for sparkles and sequins for the holidays!
