As I posted on Facebook, I was really struggling with what to wear for Thanksgiving. My husband and I traveled to our hometown to spend Thanksgiving with my family at my parents’ house. My mom and step-dad keep their house much cooler than ours (68 versus 75 degrees!) but I knew that as I helped in the kitchen I would warm up. Plus there’s the whole part where you want to wear comfy pants. You know. Because pie.

(By the way, I made this Brussels sprouts recipe and it got rave reviews even from the non-Brussels sprouts fans. We made a few changes in that we blanched the sprouts before thinly slicing them and shredded the apple in the food processor. Oh, and we didn’t have grapeseed oil so we used vegetable oil instead.)

Anyway, back to my outfit. I ended up wearing a chiffon plaid shirt under a light sweater and it was the perfect combo.

These jeans are a bit too big in the waist thanks to the diet and exercise plan I’ve been on for the past six weeks or so. Which was perfect for going totally off plan and eating all the things. Because, once again, pie.

Lots of primary colors which I think is unusual for plaid. It also helps that my niece wanted to guest star and her cream and metallic outfit works perfectly for the challenge, too.
