Turning Heads Linkup-Thanksgiving Outfit Idea- Plaid Dress

Plaid dress with suede moto and tall black boots

I’ve always loved plaid. Plaid is one of those prints that seems to speak to me for the Fall season. So what could be better than a comfortable fit, brown plaid dress for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday?

Thanksgiving Outfit

I’ve always enjoyed wearing dresses for the Holidays. Especially the holidays where there is a lot of good food! We all want to be comfortable right? I love the mix of brown and black ( see this POST) and the drop waist. I added the cognac suede moto and it cuts right at about hip level. You could certainly wear a variety of knitwear over this dress as well. I would love to add a knit vest to this dress as it would add a bit of additional shape and structure. A long cardigan in either a color or neutral would look fabulous. I have stuck with neutrals here with my favorite Brahmin bag in pecan, my Franco Sarto OTK boots and the Blank NYC moto. What I love about Fall dressing is the rich fabrics and textures you can incorporate into an outfit. The snakeskin scarf adds another pattern. You could certainly add a “punch of color” with accessories here if you chose to do so.

I have curated some similar pieces for you under “Shop this Post.” These pieces are all a few years old, but you could put together a similar look. LOFT has a drop waist plaid dress that is on sale right now!

Today I am doing a multitude of things before we head to Pittsburgh Wednesday to visit the family at moms for Thanksgiving. I will be running around like a “Turkey with my head cut off”! ( I couldn’t resist!)

Dentist appointment, eyebrows threaded, nails done at salon, and my friend/stylist will come to do our hair. Busy, busy! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone and I know mom is happy we are all coming. Did I mention there will be 4 dogs? 2 shih tzus ( mine) an Australian Cattle dog ( brother) and a Frenchie( brother). I love it.

    I am planning to wear a dress this Thanksgiving and then I’ll wear something cozy after we heat! Your plaid dress is so cute on you and I love the neutral brown and black colors. 4 dogs is a lot, I bet they’ll get some yummy table scraps, too! Ha!

    Oooh, it’s a doggie Thanksgiving, too! I love that. Mine have been groomed and have their turkey and plaid scarves so they are all set! lol! Super cute dress and jacket. Don’t you just love Franco Sarto shoes? They are still a bit of a secret and make those gorgeous leather pieces in Italy! Like your boots! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving at Mom’s.

    Digging the brown and black color combination. Pairing it up with accents of cognac was an excellent choice. I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family.
