Thanksgiving Style


A Tradition of Style

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  It’s a day where everyone makes time to give thanks, say thanks and to be thankful for all they have.  It seems no matter where you are, who you are, how much you have or how much you don’t have – this day provides all of us the chance to reflect and realize what a blessing this life really is.

My Thanksgiving always starts out with the Parade Company’s Turkey Trot in downtown Detroit.  Rain or shine, thousands of metro Detroiters gather to start their day with a healthy run along the streets of Detroit. 

Folks lining up early and eagerly awaiting America’s Thanksgiving Parade cheer us on – it’s the greatest feeling.

I love dressing for Thanksgiving because it’s such a celebratory day….and well…I love fall colors.  It’s important to dress comfortably for Thanksgiving  - to make room for the excess of food and to lie around watching football in comfort.  

So what to wear on the big day?  Definitely nothing with fuss.  I always like to go for an autumnal cozy sweater and great accessories.  Anthropologie always has an amazing array of sweet sweaters that make you want to celebrate everyday, but provide the extra special touch on holidays (like the one featured at the opening of the post).

Accessories are the best way to put the holiday in your Thanksgiving style.  Etsy is my favorite place to find unique, special pieces that mark a special occasion.  I love the delicate camera pendant I found from Necklacependantworld.  With all of the family photos taken on this day, its the perfect fit.  For a more traditional fall fare, the acorn necklace from RhondasTreasures is great too.

KimArt - etsyFall inspired headbands and hairpieces are inexpensive, simple ways to create a special holiday look and Etsy is full of these handmade treasures.  A few are featured above in this post.  I also adore this little hair pin to the left from KimArt…and only $4.50!

Necklaces are an easy breezy way to jazz up your holiday look.  The pretty pieces above make a great statement and are made with divine craftsmanship. 

And for a little kitschy cool…who can resist these Thanksgiving inspired accessories?  I mean…common – Turkey cufflinks?  Turkey leg pendant?  You know you know someone to buy these for….!!!
