Can you believe Thanksgiving is next Thursday?! I swear it sneaks up on me every year. Today I thought it would be fun to share my Thanksgiving traditions with you plus a few outfit ideas to help you pick out something to wear to your Thanksgiving Day festivities!
My Thanksgiving Traditions
I like to think my family does Thanksgiving in a pretty unique way. Every year, for the past ten or so years, my mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, and I have ventured to Dallas to meet my aunt, uncle, and cousins to watch the Dallas Cowboys play on Thanksgiving Day. A lot of people don’t realize that the Cowboys and the Lions play every single Thanksgiving Day. The Lions have the early game and the Cowboys have the late one.
We usually head out to the stadium, which used to be the old, not so nice Cowboys stadium, but since 2009 it’s Jerry World, around noon. Don’t worry, we don’t miss out on a Thanksgiving feast, we actually have two! At our tailgate there’s usually turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, you name it! After tailgating and cheering on the boys to a victory, we usually head back to my aunt and uncle’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. My mom and aunt make all of our favorites – corn bread dressing and chocolate pie takes the cake for me!
This year I’ll be flying straight to Dallas from DC early on Thanksgiving Day so I’ll be all decked out in my game day gear starting that morning! I generally wear the same Thanksgiving outfit every year – jeans, booties, and my Cowboys jersey! It’s usually a little chilly so I always layer a long sleeve tee underneath the jersey.
This Year’s Thanksgiving Outfit
If you’re heading to a family lunch, I’d recommend keeping it cozy and casual. I’m obsessed with the details on the sleeves on this sweater. If it’s cold where you are, pair a pretty plaid scarf with a cream sweater, or snag this perfect fall colored turtleneck sweater to pair with jeans and a cute pair of boots!
