For Damsels in Distress for the Big Dinner...



Whether it's a quaint gathering or a grand soiree Thanksgiving Dinner is Autumn's big day. 

From the parade, to the big game, to a days worth of food preparation, one should dress for such an occasion.



On a day of seeing distant relatives, boyfriend's/girlfriend's family, and our even our own all under one roof..."what to wear" can be quite the dilemma.


Flats or nice low heels, will keep you comfortable, and allow you to become you in-laws new "favorite" while offering to carry in the pie....

Neutrals and blacks will keep an autumn clean look 
A classic tartan Aumtumn-friendly patterned top tucked into your favorite corduroys or riding pants will adhere to the down-town prep vibe

A bright top or sweater will keep you cozy and lax which is something to definitely give thanks for... in the world of everlasting tight fitted tops... 
a relaxed silhouette is just right for this occasion

Pair a multi colored scarf to to tone down the brightness and keep a Fall-vibe if you are afraid of "falling" into a Summer look

Jacquard or patterned bottoms will keep your chic look present with a loose fitted top

Bottoms with interest such as a jacquard are a good way to incorporate a surprise-factor in outfitting 

Plain tops and patterned bottoms also enable one to accessorize more on top since your shirting is not distracting
