Give Thanks- What to Wear to Thanksgiving Dinner

Sarah from For the Love

Hi all! I'm so happy to be guest posting for Dee Dee as a part of the Give Thanks blog event!

I blog over at For the Love about anything I want, but mostly frugal fashion. Every Tuesday and Thursday I do a segment called Really Frugal Fashion where I showcase my efforts to stay a hip mama on a not so hip budget. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I thought I would show you a sensible option for showing up to that upcoming Thanksgiving dinner.

It'll most likely be a little chili right? So I thought it would be a good idea to throw on a chunky knit cardigan- especially the kind that only cost $5. A vintage scarf for a touch of festivity, and boots for practicality.

Layering is perfect for the occasion. I figure it might be cold until you arrive for dinner, but once you arrive you know it's gonna be cookin! I'm prepared with a statement necklace underneath to replace the scarf.

Oh and you don't have to tell anyone if you secretly have to unbutton your pants after dinner. :

Here are the details for my thrifty Thanksgiving dinner appropriate ensemble:

Knit Cardigan: Auction retailer, $5
Top:Banana Republic via Name Droppers (in Utah)
Jeans:F21 via Plato's Closet $5
Socks: Husband's
Boots: Thrifted, $6
Scarf: Vintage, belonged to my Gram.
Necklace: Gift


  1. What a cute outfit! I especially love the cardigan :). For Thanksgiving, I'll be wearing a sweater dress from Old Navy that I picked up at the thrift store for $8!!
