I’ve done just about every kind of Thanksgiving:
I’ve had plenty of traditional turkey dinners at home with immediate and extended family, where I watched (a) my mom freak out about cooking and/or (b) my grandpa fall asleep on the couch in front of a football game.
One year, I went to New York and saw the Macy’s parade and had dinner with some people I had never met before who very generously let me and my friend come over to their tiny apartment.
I’ve had dinner with Kristin’s very large extended family, which, like the Macy’s parade, involves a large cast of characters. I’ve had Thanksgiving at the beach, which included sipping champagne while watching the waves (that was a particularly good one). Last year, I went to a potluck “Friendsgiving.”
That brings us up to date…to this year, when I added yet another variation of Turkey Day to my repertoire: a Thanksgiving date of dinner and a movie! I spent all day with the person I’m most thankful for (I know…gag). We made breakfast and ate it in bed while watching the parade (the Macy’s one, not her family), then got gussied up and went to see a movie, and finished the night with dinner at Cooper’s Hawk Winery (we took pumpkin pie cheesecake to go and I even shared a little of it). So there you have it: a fabulously uncomplicated and fun Thanksgiving, and a great excuse for this outfit. Now, if anyone can think of something new for me to do next year, let me know! Thanks.
Also, don’t think I forgot today is Cyber Monday. Since this blog is more about my style and my random nonsensical thoughts than it is about shopping tips, I decided not to do a special post for sales alerts. However, I will be posting links with sales and promo codes on the Sarah’s Real Life Facebook page and on Twitter, so you can follow along there if you’d like!

This is very chic! While I can’t imagine not spending time with my family on Thanksgiving, this is definitely going to be on my outfit ides list to re-create!
Love the dress, and really love the pop of turquoise in the belt. Hope you had a great holiday!
Thank you! I do love a good color pop.
Such a cute look! Loving that dress and how you added the mint belt!
Thanks! Mint just looks so great with leopard. I’ve worn the same belt with a leopard cardigan.
Mint + Leopard=genius! Glad to have found your blog ❤
