In the midst of preparing the turkey and making the pumpkin pies, you need to decide what you will wear to your Thanksgiving Day dinner! We normally have at least 2 Thanksgiving dinners to attend and every year I give some thought as to what I will wear.
For me it isn’t a vanity issue. I just know that I only have the chance to be around certain family members a few times a year, and I don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb while I’m there!
You might be in the same situation I am. You have a larger than normal family and you might homeschool. Two strikes against you. You are only ever seen wearing a dress, so naturally you are Amish (no offense to the Amish meant at all, I’ve just been called Amish quite a few times in my lifetime). Also, the family dinner you are attending will have non believers present, and you don’t want to create a bad impression.
This is not the time for your favorite regency period dress. 🙂 When I am fellowshipping with people who dress totally different than I do, I don’t compromise by any means, but I do try to dress in an outfit that doesn’t stand out.

Maxi skirts are very popular right now.
Stripes are still in.
Layering is done by everyone.
Cute boots can make a long skirt look even more adorable.
Skinny belts can style to an otherwise plain looking outfit.
Scarves add a nice fashion touch.
These are all ideas of what I mean by blending in without compromising your standards.
I grabbed some family members and a friend and asked if I could take their pictures to share here. These are all outfits that would be appropriate for any Thanksgiving Day dinner. You don’t have to wear traditional Fall colors, even though quite a few of our outfits have brown in them. 🙂
I love this outfit my sister is wearing because it has a pop of color in the shirt and necklace! She also has adorable brown boots on, which look much cuter then the picture reflects. 🙂
My mother-in-law can put together some pretty cute outfits! I love this skirt for Thanksgiving, because it has a darker color in the skirt without it being brown. The top reminds me of vibrant fall leaves! The belt is a nice finishing touch, plus she has on red high heels.
Jessica from Candle in the Night blog is wearing one of our maternity ruffle skirts. A khaki maternity skirt is included in my basic essential list of maternity items. It is especially helpful to have at Thanksgiving time when you can pair it with a variety of tops for the perfect fall outfit!
Finally, I’m wearing a ruffle skirt from Deborah & Co. a new cream shirt from Zulily, (Lands End) and new brown boots from Zulily! A necklace from Mialisia seemed perfect to complete the outfit.
I hope these outfits give you some ideas!
