Polyvore: Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday!

Last night, I asked you guys if you've already planned your Thanksgiving dinner menu.
Now, my next question is: Is your Thanksgiving outfit ready? ;)

Mine isn't... so I decided to make some Polyvore outfits for inspiration.

Our family plans aren't quite solid yet -- I think we're going to my sister and brother-in-law's place for Thanksgiving lunch, and then perhaps to another relative's house for dinner. Since I'm not sure, I went ahead and made two sets of "Day-to-Night" outfits that I would love to wear (and hopefully can recreate with the stuff I already have, haha!):

Mustard Pants -

Thanksgiving Day-to-Night 1

I have yellow pants, but not the perfect mustard-y shade like the one here -- for the first set, I decided to have the pants as the main piece in this Day-to-Night outfit. Although I am going comfy with a slouchy v-neck pullover and a scarf, I still think it would be nice to dress up the look with oxford platforms and those beautiful stud earrings. I would put my hair up in a high ponytail -- to showcase the earrings (and to keep hair out of my face while I eat, haha!). ;)

At night, I would go for a pretty pink blouse, change my earrings to those beautiful blue dangling ones, and then go comfy with ballet flats. For this look, I think a nice and sleek bun would be best -- show off those gorgeous earrings and pretty blouse!

I love dressing up, but of course there are days when I want to dress down a bit while still being stylish:

Sequined Tee and Black Blazer -

Thanksgiving Day-to-Night 2

A sequined tee is a good way to "stylishly dress down" -- for day, I would pair the tee and a black blazer/jacket with cropped jeans. And as with the first outfit, I would add a bit of sass with lace up booties, a bright colored bag, and pretty earrings.

For a dinner get-together, I'd keep the tee, blazer, and bag -- I would go for black skinnies and those beautiful green suede slipper loafers. Keep the flower earrings or switch to a more fancy pair.

I am quite torn between these 4 possible outfits -- help me choose?
Which of these would you wear for Thanksgiving?
What are your plans for November 24th?

  1. Love it the outfits are so colorful but really simple and I love it!!!


  2. I want to wear something "fall"ish, but its been in the 70s this week! I'm hoping itll cool off. I had to wear short sleeves last Thanksgiving and it annoyed me lol.

  3. Fashion Kreator-- aww, yay i'm glad you love them! :)

    Katie-- haha, the weather can be soooo unpredictable! ;)

  4. ahhhh I love this. I always plan out my outfits for special events. Im not quite sure what Im wearing yet. I have 3 dinners to go to. So something with an expanding waitline! hahaha
    Your picks are gorgeous. I love the first one best!

  5. Veronica-- alright, i'll take your pick into account. ;) and yeah, i always plan my outfits in advance too. plus wow, 3 dinners?! that's amazing! :D

  6. hi dear! nice outfit choices :D love how you styled the mustard pants :)

  7. Oh wow..love the first group ...but really we are a much more casual bunch...so the second group would be more of my choosing.

  8. I am in love with those platform oxfords. I think I must have them. I have nothing planned for thanksgiving. Who knows what I'll end up wearing!

  9. Adore the first look, I would love those Tory Burch nude flats! :) xx

  10. i LOVE the first mood board the best (although the black cardigan on the second is really nice and elegant)
    I love the blue purse though... Its... gahhhh! Wonderful!

    And I'm feelin' the mustard pants!!! :)
    Whatever you wear, I think you're already safe with your "possiblities" ... you'll look great

  11. Great picks. I love that peach colored bow blouse.
