Happy (Early) Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is just a day or so away and I've been busy getting ready for the big feast by going grocery shopping and watching cooking tips on the Food Network! Since Thanksgiving can be such a hectic time of the year, with people traveling, shopping and cooking, I thought I would get in a Thanksgiving post a day or two ahead of time! This outfit, which I wore earlier this week, is the type of outfit I might consider wearing for Thanksgiving but, due to the fact that these jungle print pants are made of silk, actually wearing them on Thanksgiving is off the table! First, it's going to rain here on Thanksgiving and silk and water definitely don't mix! Second, after having several incidents involving near misses with relatives and turkey grease on Thanksgiving, I now have a hard and fast rule about only wearing things that can be washed!

I guess you could say that this outfit makes for a good Pre-Thanksgiving look! I think it could also work as a great Christmas outfit too. In fact, I was originally thinking about pairing these pants with a green cashmere sweater to bring out some of the other colors in the jungle cat print but that pairing will have to wait until after Thanksgiving. Speaking of after Thanksgiving, just a quick reminder for all my J. Crew loving readers: remember that for Black Friday, J. Crew will be offering a discount of 50% off just about everything, including these pants! In fact, the sale has already started for rewards members, so you can start your shopping early! I know I have! On that note, happy Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday!

  1. Katie, these pants are magnificent! And I love all the colors you paired with them. I hear you on Thanksgiving outfit choices. You definitely need washable pieces! We had an ugly Christmas top themed Thanksgiving. It was super cute and fun. I hope your holiday was filled with many blessings!


  2. Love the bright colors, which are so perfect for the gloomy, raining days of fall and winter sometimes. Thanks for linking up with the Style Six!

  3. Those pants are fabulous! I love how you've styled them with the mustard sweater and purple bag. Thanks for linking up!
