what are you wearing this thanksgiving?










thanksgiving is a week away and i knew what i was going to wear way back in december.
when larry bought me this blouse i knew the colors would be perfect for fall and that i'd wear it this year for thanksgiving.
talk about planning ahead.
we typically eat and then take a walk through the park so this is works well.

do you go all out and get all dressed up or is it a jeans day for you too?
what will you be wearing?


and...






yesterday's lunch.

tortilla grilled and stuffed with spinach and daiya cheddar cheese.
bbq chips.

&

yesterday on the pumpkin soup i left out a critical ingredient...1/2 t pumpkin pie spice.  sorry about that.

  1. Perfect blouse for Thanksgiving.

    I'm pretty impressed with the Daiya cheese. It's taste pretty good. I've also been using oat bran lavash in place of tortillas. They have a great nutty flavor when they're toasted.

    3. It's sad to be afraid of food.
      And if you find cheese evil, why do you call your faux-cheese "cheese?"

    4. who's afraid of food?

      i don't find cheese evil - but i do find the practices that the dairy industry use to be so.

  2. Looking very chic and Thanksgiving-ish in your outfit.
    I don't know what I am even doing for Thanksgiving this year, let alone what I am wearing. Lots of things up the air around here.

    I think it's so romantic that Larry buys you clothes.

  3. The autumn leaves are perfect for Thanksgiving. It's nice you can plan your outfit in advance. I tried doing that for a while but I usually ended up changing my mind anyway so now I just put the outfit together when I'm getting dressed. I love the idea of a casual Thanksgiving dinner and a walk in the park.

  4. Larry did well (he is quite a stylist, isn;t he?), the blouse is beautiful, perfect for anything! I almost forgot about the Thanksgiving, with the storm everything got so out of whack here, I have to think...

    1. hmmm, larry would laugh at the idea of him being a stylist but i personally think he has great taste. pssst, at least in women.

  5. Love the neckline and sleeves of that blouse. I have one very similar in black and have thought of taking it to a dressmaker to see if she can make a pattern from it and make me a few more, as that style is so flattering I think. I do not see it often, but it is a favorite. I'll be wearing a brown turtle neck sweater, jeans. Janet, can you please share what flavor Daiya cheese you use with the spinach tortilla. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving
    p.s. (I purchased the ingredients today to make your soup : )

  6. It's not our Thanksgiving but I'm doing it anyway! And dressing up, Kate Spade dress + apron.
    We should walk afterwards that would be sensible but we'll probably lie around and watch football.
    That blouse is so you, good job on the gift Larry!

  7. I'm enjoying your daily posts recently!

    Love that outfit and Larry has exceptional taste. :) My husband doesn't actually go out and buy me stuff, although I catch him on occasion looking at things for me on the internet. Just last week I was walking by the computer and he was on the Links of London website. A teacher at his school had a bracelet that caught his eye so he was thinking of getting the same one for me for Christmas. So sweet!

    Still need to try that Daiya cheese.

    1. i've been waiting for this...haha. chips are my weakness and sometimes i do give in.

  9. Chips?
    We potato lovers can't get enough of them.
    I cannot keep any in the house...too tempting.

    BTW Larry you've got a great eye for fashion.

  10. I love Daiya but am a little bummed re lack of nutrish and generous fat...but i keep eating it because it quells the cheese monster within me. I like the cheddar! I found my girls lovely Tg outfits but still am at a loss for myself. Isnt it interesting that we all gravitate towards Turkey colors for this holiday?(:

    1. i'm with you re the lack of nutrition on the daiya too. i use it sparingly. but it has been kinda fun using it lately.

  11. I love your blouse, and I don't even usually like prints. It's great and perfect for Thanksgiving. I'm having 18 for a full blown dinner, with me doing all the cooking. So, I'll be wearing jeans, and something on top that can get dirty most likely. I may change my top before we eat, although I'm usually sweating bullets by then.

    1. oh boy kathy i so remember those days. it is a mixture of fun and exhaustion no? i'll be thinking of you...

    2. Thanks, and I came back to tell you that I looked in my closet, as you inspired me as always, and will top off my jeans with a sturdy black lace blouse, so I don't look like the kitchen help, which is my usual ensemble. Yes, it's fun and exhaustion.

  12. That blouse is a beauty, what a great eye Larry has. Thanksgiving, chips (those are crisps here), it's like a different language! xxx
