Forgiving Thanksgiving Attire!

Turkey day is almost upon us and, as always, there’s the question of how to stuff the most delectable food into our mouths (of course in a ladylike fashion!).  Then there is the question of what to wear-tight dresses, skinny jeans, and high-waisted skirts are a no-go when your stomach will double in size over the course of three hours.  So here are three forgiving Thanksgiving outfits that allow you to heap that second serving of pumpkin pie on your plate without having to loosen that belt buckle!



Poncho- Free People sz XS $48

Slip- Notice sz S/M $16

Leggings- Eileen Fisher sz XS $68

Wedge Booties- Ash sz 8/8.5 $68
