I can hardly believe it’s already Thanksgiving next week! Maybe I’m just getting older, but this year feels like it’s flying by!  The big day filled with food and family will be here Thursday and of course I’m already thinking about what to wear.  Last year, I wore jeans, but I’m thinking I’ll keep it cozy and comfy in leggings this time.  No pesky buttons to undo after eating all day! 😉

One of my favorite pair of leggings has lasted me for years.  This pair by HUE with the wide waistband.  They are great quality, totally opaque and fit like a glove without squeezing.  They fit TTS and I wear XS, and just cuff the extra length under or let it bunch at the ankle where no one sees anyway when I’m wearing boots.

I found an ultra soft and silky tunic tee that’s long enough to wear with leggings, then created more looks to give you some layering options.

You can’t go wrong with a lightweight circle cardigan that’s flattering with the circle hem.

Or, for something warmer, I love this chunky cable knit cardigan with wooden buttons.  You can tie it with the belt it comes with it leave it off.

Sweater • Leggings • Similar Boots

If you want to dress up your leggings a little, a button down top is a great way to do so while adding a pop of color and pattern.  Then, you can add either a soft v-neck tunic over to keep you warm or a colorful puffer vest.

What will you be wearing on Thanksgiving?!  Honestly, even as comfortable as leggings are, when I get back home, I’ll change right away into either holiday pajamas or the coziest joggers known to woman!  I’ve been putting them on religiously everyday since I got them!

The Gibson x Glam collaboration was one of the most fun and exciting thing I’ve gotten to be a part of since I started blogging almost 9 years ago.  I didn’t even have it in my wildest dreams that I’d get to collaborate on a clothing line that would be sold at Nordstrom.

It’s a store I was first introduced to as a young girl when my two favorite aunts took me shopping and I was in awe and remember having such a fun day with those two.  Before that, I don’t think I’d ever even been shopping in a department store.  Needless to say, this is a full circle, pinch me kind of moment.

  1. I received your weekend email and would love the recipe for the quinoa, sweet potato, black bean chili. When I click the link it takes me to your blog post for Nov 16th, but no mention of the recipe.

  2. Where can I find the necklace you’re wearing in the top photo? I tried the link and it was different. Thank you!
