Feeling Thankful and Lucky

Thanksgiving is a pretty big deal around here. We host every year and have extended family over for a feast that takes days to create. Needless to say, it’s a lot of work but totally worth it too. My parents spend six months of the year in Texas beginning each October so Thanksgiving is the kick off of many family festivities that we enjoy while they’re here.

This year, I’ll be roasting two turkeys and baking six pumpkin pies, in addition to making our traditional dressing and pitchers of cranberry spritzers. My sisters usually handle the rest of the sides while my husband and brothers-in-law will be readying the couch for some all-day football watching.

I feel incredibly blessed to be able to share this day with my family. We have so much to be thankful for – another year of good health and togetherness being first and foremost.

My Thanksgiving Day outfit this year comes courtesy of Lucky Brand. I love to be comfortable yet look effortlessly put-together when I host dinners at our home. To me, this outfit achieves that goal perfectly. The stretch corduroy jeans are comfortable and forgiving, while the red ochre color screams fall. This cream colored Tuxedo Top in Nigori is incredibly versatile and one of my new favorite pieces in my wardrobe. But the pattern and colors of the diamond Ikat printed scarf are my favorite; it’s just festive enough and brings the whole outfit together.

I’ll be combining these pieces in other outfits throughout the rest of fall and winter. These cords come in five different colors; I’d love to add a few more pairs to my collection.
