As much as I love to dress, style my hair, pile on makeup and do my nails – I really don’t dress up on the actual holiday. You know what? I don’t think you should either. We work ourselves to the bone the rest of the year and deserve to sleep in, wake up looking a mess, make a huge mug of coffee and relax in our best pajamas. This is what the holidays are really about. Sit around, eat, socialize with family, eat some more then simply sit back and take it all in. I see so many people stressed out because they didn’t iron their table clothes the right way, or they have to settle for using plastic plates instead of fine china as a table setting because their wondrous set was missing a piece. All the fancy dresses, accessories and such, save it for those special holiday parties.
You know what I’m wearing to my Thanksgiving meal? Leggings, fake uggs, a long sleeve tunic top, throwing my hair in a bun and calling it a day. I’m all about comfort and functionality. Who wants to suffer through a delicious meal in constricting jeans? Ugh, I hate denim!
If you do get dressed up, I hope you look fantastic and all your effort was worth it! Remember to pair your gravy stain on your top with the appropriate wine stain. You would hate to appear gouache when Thanksgiving meal hopping today.
Stay safe & be thankful!!
