So if you live in the United States you are probably quite aware that today is Thanksgiving. I considered writing a list of things I’m thankful for, but that list is long. I feel it’s needless to say that I am thankful for my friends and my family and all of you lovely people out there. So instead I thought I would provide you with what I believe to be the anatomy of the perfect Thanksgiving outfit.
“But Morgan, shouldn’t any ol’ outfit do?”
Oh no, you’re mistaking. There truly is an art to perfecting your Thanksgiving outfit – you need to look somewhat nice to impress the relatives, you need to have stretch room for your post-feast belly, and you need to be comfy for the sleepiness that inevitably comes from the Thanksgiving meal.
You see, there really is a lot to it. But no worries, you have me here to walk you through it! Thanks to my boyfriend, I was able to capture these (admittedly a little awkward and staged) photos of my Thanksgiving outfit!
As you see, I’m working my high stretch jeggings. They are from American Eagle and are so soft that they might as well be pajamas. In fact, I slept in them many nights during midterms last semester. The stretch allows for me to eat as much as I want without feeling trapped.
On top I have a loose, flowy sweater that says “I am cute and collected, but who knows what I am hiding under here.” And just a hint, I will probably be hiding a tummy full of my Aunt Connie’s stuffing under there, but that’s our little secret.
As for accessories, I added a pretty headband to my hair and some curls and left it at that.
I stuck with black Uggs to complete my Thanksgiving outfit, simply because my cute black boots are 3 hours away in my dorm room, and I will be taking them off as soon as I get to my Grandma’s for festivities, anyway.
So, as you can see I’m not quite fashion blogger material quite yet – but maybe that’s something I can work on in the future! For now I am heading to my grandma’s house to catch up with my aunts, uncles and army of cousins. If you are in the United States, how do you celebrate Thanksgiving? If you are anywhere else – how are you making the most of this wonderful Thursday?
And I know you’re probably thinking, “Wow, Morgan! You’re a natural at this whole fashion blogging thing!” And you’d be right. And just to further drive that point home, I present you with this:
