Today's Everyday Fashion: Thanksgiving Day


This is what I'm wearing on Thanksgiving this year! I'm on a plane to Kansas today so I already have my outfit picked out. ;-) I've had this poncho for years (same poncho, different color as the one I posted a couple weeks ago here). I love being super cozy to visit family and eat lots of food, but I put together a wide range of looks below that you could wear for Thanksgiving, no matter how dressy or casual your celebration may be. The common theme is fall colors and I would most likely wear #1, 2, 7, 10 or 11 for Thanksgiving - which ones are your favorite? What will you wear on Thanksgiving this year?

Poncho: Gap, old (similar)
Shirt: LOFT, $30 (similar)
Jeans: Vigoss c/o Nordstrom Rack, $35 (similar, similar)
Boots: c/o Chinese Laundry, $150
Purse: Karen Millen, $235 (similar, vegan)
Necklace: My Stella & Dot website, $98 (not pictured, for when I remove my sweater!)
Rings: My Stella & Dot website $39 and $69 and $39
Bracelets: My Stella & Dot website $59 and $59 and $79 and $19

  2. The poncho is THE best idea for Thanksgiving dinner! Although I do really love look #1 and #11. I love the colored jeans! I think this year I'm going to break in my colored jeans with my new gray booties! Happy Thanksgiving J!

  3. I love being cozy too, but I don't think I even own a sweater, because they always make me feel like I look fat! haha I think I'm going to have to go out of my way to get at least one this year though. Feeling drawn to a nice, cozy sweater. :-) Such cute outfits. Love the boots!

  4. I thought I'd post this poncho from the loft. It's similar to j's & super cute!

  6. I love this outfit.. you look so cozy and warm:)
    For girl's that are a L or XL ... what type of poncho would you recommend wearing
    that won't make larger girls look even larger?

  7. I'm so sad I can't buy that poncho. I love it!

  8. Love this outfit - I was disappointed that that the sweater is old because I wanted to get one of my own! Our family's Thanksgiving gathering is more formal, so I'll be wearing a long sleeve dress with tights and boots.

  9. What a fabulous poncho!  It's stylish, but you can still hide your food baby after eating Thanksgiving dinner :)  We are staying home with just our immediate family (me, hubby and two kids) so I may just hang out in my yoga pants all day!  Heather

  10. I am in love with look 12! I like the poncho but I worry that loose thick sweaters make me look heavier then I want to look.

  11. Dammit J...I love everything you put together!!

  12. Nicole, I would look for one that has a defined waist - and by that I mean a poncho that is nipped/sewn shut at the waist. Mine is literally a round sweater with a hole for your head, so something with sleeves or ruching at the waist would be what I would look for. Also, be sure to pair a big sweater like this with something slim on the bottom - no flares or bootcuts, stick with skinny or leggings if you can! Hope this helps!

  13. I saw this one and passed it up for some reason!! It's really cute, I added a link to the post for it.

  14. haha I have a very similar post today!  Great minds think alike, especially about the eating lots of food part! :)

  18. Stop.  Just stop.  I swore I would never like ponchos, but now you've posted not one, but two poncho outfits that I love.  You're going to make me regret my poncho-hate.

    I love this outfit!  It looks so cozy, comfy, and totally put together.  My family is not at all formal, and I always feel overdressed in anything but jeans, sneaker and t-shirts.   I could wear something like this and they wouldn't all ask me if I came from the office.

  19. The first one is my favorite. Great poncho!!!!

  20. From experience I have learned that a belted waist is a bad idea on Thanksgiving after you have eaten that big meal... haha Love these outfits though!

  21. This past Tuesday, my husband and I adopted an----(abandoned, about 5 years old)----wonderful orange marmalade cat from a shelter;  and I've noticed that when I wear my plush fleece cardigan, and hold our cat, he just purringly-*loves* the soooofffftttt texture of it;  so he'd probably REALLY love it then, if I bought a poncho similar to yours, because it looks just............ *so* soooofffftttt, too, J.!!

  22. First of all, I adore your blog. I also hate your blog because I keep buying cute things that I think I need (gray Old Navy poncho - seriously?!). It also makes me rethink my closet, though, too, which is really one of your mantras. My question is, where are you headed in Kansas?? I'm originally from there - a Kansas State girl actually (so hoping I get to Miami at the beginning of January for the BCS Championship, of course). Just wanted to say hello to a fellow Kansan.

  23. Hi Tricia! That is too funny! I grew up in Johnson County and that's where I'll be most of the week, although I've also got small trips planned to St. Louis, Ottawa and a couple other towns (I'm in a wedding + 2 TV appearances + seeing family). Thanks for saying hi!

  24. Sooo true Sophie! I wore a belt around my waist a couple years ago and definitely had to loosen it. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. My family is the same way! A hoodie would be perfectly appropriate but a sweater is just as cozy. Glad I could convert you to loving ponchos. ;-)

  26. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... okay you get the gist. These are all such wonderful outfits! You're on a plane to Kansas?! We should hang out the next time you visit and don't have such a jam-packed schedule :P

  27. Rock chalk ;) I get to spend my first Thanksgiving in Kansas in three years (since I started law school) and I am so excited! Love your sweater - definitely taking this into consideration while I'm packing this weekend.

  31. #1 - in fact, I can recreate that with what i own in the closet.  Thanks!  Now I don't have to figure it out!

    ReplyDelete
  32. thank you for inspiration every day. Here I learned to explore further the clothes I have, the amount is not the solution for us to innovate, create new looks. Before wearing darker colors, so thought it was easier to be well dressed, a mistake, now I try to always have some color. I sets, mix pieces and started taking pictures, I advise later we can always remember that look it was a success.I will continue to visit every day. Congratulations and continues.A Portuguese grateful

  34. I love this poncho!  I would die of a heat stroke though. I am almost always hot and love winter (in Texas) but rarely wear anything heavier than a cardi.  If I have on a jacket, I have to be able to take it off if I get too hot. There is a woman I work with that wears a wrap like poncho thing that is really pretty and might be an option though. I am still limiting my clothes purchases until spring unless I find something I LOVE.

  35. Are you a Kansas girl?! I'm in Kansas right now as well visiting family for Thanksgiving. I hope you have a great time with your family and good luck with your tv appearances!

  37. Okay, this is too funny. I'm flying into St. Louis tonight (I travel for a living), and I live in Rolla, MO, about 110 miles away from STL. I'll be traveling to Raymore, MO, for Thanksgiving! (Hello, Johnson Co neighbor!) Have a happy turkey day and safe travels!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Waaah! <------ That's me whining because I love the poncho you're wearing and was hoping it was still available! Have a great Turkey day!

  39. I could have swore you were on my flight on Wednesday in to St. Louis...  If not, you have a twin.

  40. Must be a twin. ;-) I flew into Kansas City on Thursday!

  42. Debbie, that sweater coat is also from Gap, around the same time I bought the poncho so 4-5 years ago!

  47. 1,5, 10, & 11 are my favorites. I'm 9mths preg and cooking for my DH, 2boys, and a friend, so I want to be comfortable, but also cute enough for any impromptu pics.

  48. Hi J! I recreated the look above (poncho w white shirt underneath) and wore it out to do some black Friday shopping and the Loft girl behind the counter was like "OMG! that is so cute!" I was so excited!! :) Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!
