Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas & Traditions

How are we almost halfway through November?! It seems like the fall semester always flies by for us. Between recruitment, football games, homecoming and everything in between, it feels like you blink and then all of a sudden it’s Christmas! We were talking to each other last night about how crazy it is that we’re almost seniors in college…what?! We’re not ready for real life! LOL

Since Thanksgiving is fast-approaching, we decided to be proactive (for once) and plan our Thanksgiving outfits early this year. Hopefully this gives you all some inspiration! We’re also sharing our families’ Thanksgiving traditions. We love hearing what different families do for the holidays, so leave us a comment below and tell us how your Thanksgiving goes down!



My number one goal when it comes to getting dressed for this holiday is to be comfortable. You eat so much food on Thanksgiving that the last thing you need is the struggle of trying to button your pants after your third helping of mashed potatoes (#noshame). This year I’ve opted for these incredibly comfortable leather leggings. They are a little more acceptable than a typical legging, especially when worn with a longer top or tunic. PLUS, they are Spanx, so no one will even be able to tell how many pieces of pie you’ve had! 😉

My parents are divorced, so I always split the holiday with both sides of my family. Typically, I’ll go to my dad’s side first, where we all hit up my grandparent’s house for a Thanksgiving lunch. After I’ve had my post-feast nap, I’ll go to my mom’s side of the family, and prepare for round 2 of eating. It’s a lot of work, but hey, someone’s gotta do it!



My outfit is also super comfortable, but a little more dressed up. The sweater will cover your Thanksgiving food baby nicely, and since the skirt has an elastic waist, it’s still comfy. My sweater is 40% off right now on J.Crew, so if you are looking for a good sweater, get this one while it’s on sale!

Usually, for Thanksgiving my parents and I always start the day by watching the Macy’s parade (my little brother usually isn’t interested).Then, my whole family will get together (usually either at my grandparents or aunt and uncle’s house), and we always do a late lunch. I think most of our family traditions happen at Christmas time, but that is for another post. A recent one we have started, is that my whole family all goes around and we all say one thing we are thankful for. We also draw names to see which family member we will be buying Christmas presents for!

Don’t forget to tell us all about your Thanksgiving plans below! Thanks for reading y’all!

xoxo, Breana and Riley
