It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and I can hardly believe that the holiday season is upon us! My family is gathering from across the country to celebrate, and I’m looking forward to time together and, of course, a lot of pie. Recently I’ve put together some outfits that I think will be perfect for Thanksgiving, so today I’m sharing three looks that would work well for a variety of celebrations. These outfits could also be easily adapted to be more casual or dressy. Whether you’re watching the parade, in the kitchen, or at a family dinner, I hope this post gives you some style inspiration!

Last month my family took a road trip out to Arizona to spend some time with family. We all met in Sedona, Arizona, a place I loved visiting growing up, and spent a few days at a house my aunt had rented. The scenery in Sedona was amazing, and we enjoyed exploring the town. We also took an afternoon to stop by The Grand Canyon, something that blows my mind each time I see it.
