Thanksgiving Day Look 1 || Casual In Boots (4 Best Boots For The Day)

Thanksgiving has changed for me over the years. When I was younger, all my cousins came into town for the week. We’d head to Disneyland, see movies, and do the whole Black Friday thing. As we all got older, and schedules became more complicated, Thanksgiving was spent with local family… a short drive away. In college, there was the occasional roommate who joined us, and now that my sister and I are both married, there is a blending of families: Turkey Bowls, Turkey Trots, Thanksgiving lunches, and Thanksgiving dinners. And, with all the different festivities of the actual day, having a versatile outfit makes shifting between events a cinch…..

My three requirements for the day are that my pants must always be stretchy…. my shirt loose…. and my feet comfortable. And while this makes me sound like a complete slob, there is an art to making the aforementioned requirements look seemingly pulled together. So, this week, I will be sharing three different Thanksgiving Day looks… all fitting my requirements… and all hopefully fitting the attire of your day… casual, dressy casual, or outright comfortable.

Today’s look is for the casual Thanksgiving day…. the one where you want to look pulled together until your day of visiting multiple families, or having a house full of people,  is over and it’s reasonably acceptable to change (or, in my case, until it’s time to turn on Christmas Vacation). For that type of Thanksgiving I always like to have a comfortable shoe option… since I’ll likely be on my feet for most of the day (playing with kiddos, helping cook, etc…)….. and more often than not turn to some form of boots to get me through the day. Nordstrom carries some of my favorite, well priced, boot brands… Sole Society, Hunter, Franco Sarto, and Vince Camuto. So today, I’ll be sharing with you the four booties perfect for Turkey Day… and any day after that…..

1. Over The Knee Boots: One of the easiest ways to dress up any outfit, toss on a pair of over the knee boots. And while they tend to dress things up a bit, what you pair them with determines how much. A slouchy oversized sweater +jeans keeps things on the more casual side… while a pair of velvet leggings + a blouse make it a bit fancier. I love this pair for a day of multiple Thanksgivings. They’re super comfortable, the perfect heel height… and if you’re like me and have a tornado tagging along with you, a pair you can easily run around in. I also own this flat over the knee boot (invested in them several years ago, budget friendly option here).

2. Bootie: Another perfect option if you’re house hopping, and another one that can be dressed up or down… I love pairing them with a frayed hem jean. One of my favorite pairs is this Sole Society bootie (which I own in navy)… extremely comfortable + I love the cut at the ankle. This white studded pair + this studded bootie in black would both be super cute options if you were wanting to dress it up a bit. This taupe bootie is also a great option, at a good price point.

3. Rain Boots: Every year I wish for rain on Thanksgiving… just makes the day that much cozier. So, if you have several houses to go to in the rain, and can’t stay inside all day, my favorite comfortable and stylish rain boots are these Hunter boots (I own in black and green) as well as this bootie option (which I own in black, but comes in several colors). Both will keep your toes dry, and look super cute with jeans, leggings, cute sweater, and warm coat.

4. The Cozy Boot: When you’re going super casual for your day of feasting, this is my favorite option…. coziness prevails. This short lined boot has been my favorite for the past two seasons and I love wearing it with jeans and a cozy cardigan. It’s pretty much like wearing slippers all day…
