Are you the kind of hostess who is perfectly coiffed and presents a perfect meal in a perfectly clean house?
Or maybe your cooking skills leave something to be desired but dang it, at least you're going to look great!
I've always been a fan of "dressing for dinner." I think that would have been such a neat era to live in. But more than anything I want our guests to feel welcome and comfortable in our home. I don't want to LOOK like I'm frazzled and the hosting duties have left me on edge. Even if something goes wrong with the cranberry sauce, I want the "clean and comfortable" theme to continue with my appearance. Hakuna-Matata and pass the gravy!
I think dark jeans and a comfortable blouse or sweater will be just the ticket. Anything too over the top and guests might feel out of place. Too underdressed and they might feel uncomfortable. I'm not a fan of shoes in the house so satiny slippers help me look polished and don't slow me down. A sleek ponytail, light makeup, and a fun necklace or earrings should top the look off nicely. I'll let you know how it goes.
I'd love to hear about your Thanksgiving style, whether as hostess or guest. Do you dress to the nine's or relax in your flannels? Either way, I'm thankful to have the choice. Thankful for so many blessings despite the struggles so many are facing.
