Thanksgiving Leftovers Party

Have you ever been to a leftovers party? Picture a potluck of Thanksgiving leftovers and games, with your friends, since yesterday was spent with relatives.

My outfit (that's me on the right, but dd's outfit is so cute I made her be in the picture too):

  • Old Gap jeans. I paid $1 at the thrift store. As usual, I am wearing silk "pants" under.
  • Old merino wool turtleneck, originally clearance at JCPenney.
  • Gotta love the burgundy quilted jacket with corduroy trim. $10 at the "Eddie (Bauer) Outlet". It's too "classic" for my style, I wear it as a costume. Alot.
  • My practical shoes.
  • Yay! My birthday belt came today!

Something else to be thankful for: the ladies bought us Apples to Apples for Christmas (and allowed us to open it prior to this holiday weekend). Have you played it yet?

Great outfits! I haven't commented in SO long, but I'm still reading! I find your blog so helpful.

We've been to a leftover/game night before, and it was really fun! Thanks for the reminder... we'll have to try it again sometime.

What do you mean when you call your jacket a "costume?"

Thanks Beck!

Jennifer, what I meant by wearing my jacket as a costume is kind of a subjective thing:

When I wear it, I am playing dress-up. I feel as if I am dressing up as someone more traditional than myself, and I only feel comfortable wearing it under certain circumstances. Fortunately, in my life anyway, those circumstances occur alot (low-key leisure event, with family or friends who are pretty traditional ...)

Did that make any sense?

Ah, yes, perfect sense!

And Apples to Apples is a great game! Great for the kids too!
