What To Wear: Thanksgiving

Now that we are really getting close, and I have a fairly full social calendar this weekend, I am beginning to give serious thought to what I am going to wear for Thanksgiving. The big question mark is, "What kind of an event is Thanksgiving, really?"

When I was growing up, Thanksgiving was more of a fancy dinner. I wore a dress. But this weekend we will be attending two separate dinners given at people's lake houses. Probably a bit more casual. Dressy leisure wear?

If it fit me, I might wear this leather blazer, for sale on ebay, along with jeans and a nice shirt and boots. Unfortunately it's a hair too small. Would it fit you? (Starting bid $9.25 American. Auction ends in just over five hours.)

I'm going to try to "play dress-up" and take some pictures some time today. In the meantime, how do people dress at your Thanksgiving festivities?

It would probably fit me. But if it runs small, just.

Thanksgiving was always a dress for dinner fine china occasion until a few years ago. Now it's more casual.

I'll look forward to seeing your what to wear pix!

We are casual in a jeans-and-a-shirt way. I'm not sure what I'm going to wear and the situation is complicated by the fact that we are having a weird warm streak! I do know that I will probably wear my black Jeffrey Campbell ballet flats. Now I just need the rest of the outfit...
