I hope that today you're surrounded by the people and blessings that you love. It is so easy to get caught up in what we don't have, that it's easy to forget the things that we do. Remember that Thanksgiving isn't about waiting in line for a giant TV, or having the best stuffing recipe or even the parade! It's about love. I'm striving to keep that in mind throughout the holiday season and I hope that you will too!

On Friday, I shared my ideas for great Thanksgiving outfits for a casual day or a formal dinner but my Thanksgiving happens to fall somewhere between the two. My absolute favorite trend this year (and I hope it ends up sticking around) has been an a-line or bell skirt paired with a cozy, cowl neck sweater! I've been wearing a variation on this outfit a lot over the past few weeks especially now that it's starting to feel like fall! The best part about the sweater and skirt combo is that it will get a lot of wear all winter long since it goes from work and running errands to dinner and holiday parties with just a swap of accessories and shoes!

Ah, it's time for the holiday season! Emotional upheavals, scrambling for a New Years Eve date, trying to find the absolute, perfect present...it's a lot crammed into a month and I haven't even gotten to the most important part: outfits! Don't worry, I've got you covered with a few Thanksgiving outfit ideas! Because no matter how you celebrate, be it with a "friendsgiving" game of football or a formal, sit-down with the in-laws, you want to be comfortable for the marathon day and look cute! The best part is that you probably already have pieces to recreate the look in your closet...and if not, you still have plenty of shopping time!

And then there are those of us who have to seriously dress up for a formal dinner! If your Thanksgiving plans are closer to a black-tie affair than a day on the couch, I recommend a tea-length dress in fall's favorite color, burgundy! My favorite take is Alice & Olivia's Odelia Lace Dress. It's high neck is family appropriate, but the peek-a-boo bottom gives it just a hint of sexy. Plus, the classic shape means you'll be able to wear it for years to come! I'm also currently drooling over JustFab's Hadley Bow Stilettos- I think they make a charming dinner guest! With such a stunning dress, jewelry can be kept to a minimum (I like just a simple knot bangle) and then you can add a fun clutch (like this Juicy Couture Velour Lip Clutch. Just $35 at Kohl's) for a little extra personality!
If your Thanksgiving leans towards the casual side with a game of football outside, you'll need to be able to move! Flat booties, comfy jeans and a plaid are perfect for jumping in leaves with your neice or you can roll up those sleeves to mash some potatos! But you'll still want to look nice when you finally sit down, so dress it up with a red lip and some sparkle!

Glossier Soothing Face Mist//The Editor Suitcase by Steamline Luggage// White & Warren Travel Wrap// Rebecca Minkoff Julian Backpack// FRENDS "Layla" Headphones// Jetsetter Smoking Slippers by Del Toro// Polaroid Instant Zip Mobile Printer//
If you have a friend with wanderlust, you might not be able to pin them down long enough to exchange presents! I don't get to travel as much as I would like but when I do my main focus is on keeping comfortable and calm at the airport and on the plane! Here's my gift guide for the jet setter!
Any jet setter knows all that recycled air on the plane can do a number on skin! She'll be delighted to find beauty editor favorite Glossier's Soothing Face Mist in her stocking. The gentle, non-irritating spritz gives skin an immediate moisture boost and it's rosy smell is pretty great too. White & Warren's signature cashmere travel wrap will keep her warm (it comes in at least a dozen colors) and FREND's rose gold headphones guarantee she won't be stuck in a boring conversation with a chatty seatmate!
Finally, Polaroid's Zip Instant Mobile Printer (which, FYI, I received in a gift bag at Dunkin Donut's Fall Instameet) is slim and lightweight enough to fit in a carry-on. It's pretty fun to be able to actually wirelessly print all of those cell phone snaps and I've been carrying it around in my purse for a few weeks. You never know when you might need to print an Instagram!
