I think this was my favorite photo shoot to date and my first time ever to attend a friendsgiving! So excited to share with you guys the outfits we wore, food we ate, and the cute hostess gifts and holiday decor we used. I don’t know about you but I never know what to wear on Thanksgiving. Well if I’m honest, I just want to roll on over to my Mother in Laws house in my pjs or work out clothes, but unfortunately that’s not very appropriate for Thanksgiving. Some of you may get more dressed up than others, but one thing for sure is that you want to be comfy!!
I opted for an asymmetrical hem sweater dress that is lose fitting allowing my belly to consume the massive amounts of food I will be eating all day long. These heels are surprisingly comfortable and on sale!
Natalie Keinan , The Fashion Hour
I love how Natalie paired a long sleeve striped tee with her button up skirt to give it that casual but super chic vibe. How great are these grey booties? I just realized I don’t own any and think I need to do something about that 🙂
Lynlee Poston , Gal About Town
Lynlee decided to make her white bell sleeve dress even more fall ready by adding a fringed vest on top. This vest is so versatile and can be worn with just about anything! I have her boots as well and they are currently on sale! Oh and they come in 3 colors!!
Amanda Miller, The Miller Effect
Amanda and I were laughing when we showed up in nearly the identical dress! The length of hers is great for wearing boots and I love the slight bell sleeve. This dress is only $48 and comes in 4 colors! No brainer!
So happy Brooke was able to make our group shot this time! She was out of town for the last one and we missed her! I think this may be the most perfect ivory off the shoulder sweater ever made! She said it was super soft and comfy as well.
Christina Beauchamp, Fashion and Frills
I am continually inspired by Christina’s style and ability to create such fun, unique outfits. This head to toe bordeaux colored look she put together is so fabulous. You could also wear a sweater with this skirt to dress it down a bit.
I don’t know about you all but I am bad about remembering to bring a hostess gift. Mainly probably because I don’t know what to bring!! I was so excited when the girls found all of these super cute gifts at great prices!
And then it was time to eat!!! It felt good after all the work we put into this to sit down together, share laughs, and inhale some food! I have never actually made a pumpkin pie, but I was told that my first attempt was a success! I don’t really love pumpkin pie either (crazy I know) but this one was actually really good! The table looked beautiful and I have linked some of the things we used below.
Here is the recipe for the pumpkin pie –
1 9 inch unbaked deep dish pie crust
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 can Libby’s 100% pure pumpkin
1 (12 ounce) can Nestle carnation evaporated milk
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs lightly in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. …
- Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F.; bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.
Already looking forward to the next holiday post with these girls! If you didn’t catch the last one you can read it ( here ).
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
