J.Crew Stripe Tee (J.Crew Factory is on MAJOR sale right now, 40-60% off EVERYTHING and 50% off their Gift Guide) // Winnie Pants (Winnie pants are the Factory version of J.Crew Minnie pants and honestly there is no difference between the two, both are high-quality. I’d size down because they do stretch) // Plaid Blanket Scarf // Plaid Clutch (Similar and also from Marley Lilly!)
Countdown to Thanksgiving is ON. I’m flying out to Arizona on Wednesday night and I cannot wait to see my parents and Tommy! Tommy has a shadow day on Wednesday for a program for adults with disabilities, he’s already toured with my parents and had a good time meeting the other people. But suddenly he started telling my mom he didn’t want to go on Wednesday. Luckily, my mom figured out that he didn’t want to go on Wednesday because he didn’t want to miss picking me up from the airport! She specified he would go to school (What he calls the program) during the day and he’d pick me up at night. And all is well again and he’s excited to go to the program. But how sweet is that?? I almost cried when my mom told me this story.
As excited as I am to see my family, I’m procrastinating packing like a champ. Why? Because I have absolutely no clue what to wear for Thanksgiving in the desert. It’s going to be a brisk 89 degrees on Thanksgiving and my usual outfits aren’t going to cut it, especially since the plan is to eat outside. While I’d love to wear this houndstooth ruffle skirt, that’s just not gonna happen this year. So I’ll be living vicariously through all of your Thanksgiving plaids and flannels!
Here are 8 Thanksgiving outfit ideas and the good news is that a lot of the pieces below are on sale right now (Gotta love how Black Friday arrives earlier and earlier each year)!
J.Crew Sweater // J.Crew Factory Wool Skirt (Here’s this year’s Factory plaid wool skirt, it’s definitely on my list for Black Friday shopping because you can never have too many Factory sidewalk skirts!)
The Shirt (The Shirt is the best button down EVER, it has specially placed buttons so you longer have to worry about that unfortunate gap that happens around your chest. Problem solved with this shirt!) // Plaid Blanket Scarf
