10 Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas for Thanksgiving 2021

Happy Thursday my friends! I’m getting this up a day earlier than my typical Friday post, and that’s because we’ll be visiting my in-laws this weekend for our first gathering of the Holidays… which seems nuts! Anyone else feel like it shouldn’t be November already? Next weekend we are planning on getting out all of the Christmas decorations which also feels a little nuts, but also very right all at the same time ha! Getting a fake tree has definitely made early decorations a very tempting thing in our house, but with four young kids I’m happy to stretch out the festivities as long as possible. So since we’re already “in the spirit” I thought I’d share a little look book with 10 Thanksgiving outfit ideas.

These outfits range from very casual to a little dressed up, but they all have one thing in common: forgiving waistbands (or in some cases, no waistbands at all!)… a very necessary thing on a day filled with yummy foods (and thankfulness too of course!). So since there are 10 outfits to peruse, I’ll stop my chatting and we’ll get to the outfit ideas:
