The Most Perfect Blouse + 4 Thoughts for a Thanksgiving Friendly Outfit

Are you traveling this holiday weekend? If so, you’ll have to make some advanced decisions on what to wear for the best meal of the year. Personally, I like plenty of room for all of the stuffing I plan to eat, and also something that I can wear to play with my niece and nephews. I fully intend on crawling around on the ground, so it’s crucial that my outfit allows me to do that. When it comes to packing for Thanksgiving dinner, I try to keep these 4 little details in mind.

1. Despite the weather, choose something cool.

Maybe it’s just me, but the minute we start packing people into the house for dinner, the temperature starts rising by the minute. If I wear a sweater, I’m pretty much done for. That’s why shirts like this airy blouse are absolutely perfect for being cool, weather-appropriate, and still dressy enough for a holiday dinner.

2. Avoid anything too restrictive (duh).

This is arguably the best meal of the year, and we all want to be able to eat without feeling uncomfortable. (I think the HR folks who are currently running the “Maintain, Don’t Gain” campaign would vehemently disagree with what I’m about to say.) I’ll be avoiding extra tight waistbands so that I can comfortably scarf down that second helping of sweet potatoes!

3. Be mindful of children

We’ve got tons of little ones running around for the holidays (and I do mean running), and if you do, too, then you understand why wearing kid-friendly clothes is a must. I avoid skirts or dresses for days like Thanksgiving, because I want to sit on the floor and play games with them (preferably without worrying over whether I’m giving a free show). Holidays are all about family, and your outfit should not get in the way of that!

4. Take care of your toes!

Seems like common sense, but worth mentioning, is that you’ll likely be taking your shoes off wherever it is you’re visiting. With this in mind, I usually opt for a simple ankle boot that’s easy to get on and off, paired with a cozy pair of socks.

Tell me, what are you wearing for the holiday weekend?
