This year, my family is going to a Thanksgiving buffet at a beach club in my hometown, so I don't think sweatpants and a large long-sleeved shirt will be acceptable attire. I found this dress (and created an outfit around it), and I think it strikes the perfect balance of comfort and fashion for Thanksgiving:
Love those fall colors!
Statement necklace that doesn't compete too much with the dress
These are sensible enough for a family dinner...
...but let's be honest...these would be more fun...
At six inches (with a two inch platform), these would probably make your boyfriend's grandmother raise an eyebrow, but doesn't everyone need the appearance of longer legs when you've just eaten your weight in turkey and dressing?
Here's wishing you and yours a happy, healthy, and fashionable Thanksgiving!
