Ah, Thanksgiving: A time to eat, drink, be with family, and wear forgiving clothes. If I’m going to be spending my day eating, drinking, hanging on the couch, and playing with dogs and babies on the floor, you can bet I’m going to wear something that’s comfortable and requires no sucking in. I’ll admit, I’ve spent many a very casual Thanksgiving in leggings and a hoodie (ie when only immediate family who have to love me no matter how I look were present). This year, though, my future brother-in-law and his wife hosted Thanksgiving in Chicago for both mine & my fiancé’s families (yep, big undertaking) and in order to fit in with the gorgeous flower arrangements, tablescapes and food, I had to look somewhat presentable. These jeans may as well be leggings for how comfortable and stretchy they are. I figured the gold dots on my tank added some subtle holiday glitz, especially when paired with my current favorite statement necklace.
