{Thankful Week} What to wear |

For the next couple days before Thanksgiving I will be putting together a few different outfits for all types of Thanksgiving gatherings. Today I will be focusing on the formal dinner look!


The Dress:

The Shoes:

Pour La Victoire Women’s Chantel Pump | $250.00

I know, I know… $250.00. Not my usual thrifty style.. but let’s be honest. These shoes are wonderful. I love them. Although I probably couldn’t bring myself to spend that, I just want these shoes to be seen! And hopefully someone will love them enough to give them a good home. :)

The Accessories:

Black Shell Pearl Pendant Necklace | $16.99

Black 7.0-7.5mm AA Freshwater Cultured Pearl Earring Set | $55.00

I went with the classic black pearls for the jewelry. I like to keep it simple when the dress already makes such a sweet statement. It could be really cute though with a chunky black bracelet and possibly a strand of black pearls.

The Outerwear:

Genuine Nappa Soft Leather Lined Gloves | $25.99


Hopefully this will give you some inspiration if you have a more formal thanksgiving gathering to go to. I love the look of the white dress with the red coat. You can never really go wrong when wearing classic colors like black and white and I love to add a bright accent for some color.

Does anyone plan on going for a more formal look this Thanksgiving? Our family is usually pretty casual, but it could be fun to dress things up a bit this year!

  1. I want that dress!!!!! And I really may buy that coat. I seriously love it. Great outfit- I could see myself wearing all of that! You’re inspiring me to break out of my shell a little and want to try new things :). Thanks!

  2. Red is the ultimate feminine color. You just can’t go wrong. And I think everyone looks good in black and white. Classic. You should wear some bright red lipstick with that outfit. :)

  3. I seriously need a clutch like that in my life. That looks like one you could keep forever! :)

    Also adore the sweet dress, gloves, and THOSE SHOES!!!

  4. I am LOVING those black freshwater pearl earrings…may have to invest in a pair. My fam is pretty casual, too, so no heels this weekend for me…wish I had the excuse (and the budget) to snap those up, tho!
