Dressing Up For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving~a day of feasting and being thankful. Gee, everyday should be like Thanksgiving don't you think? But alas, here in the states it is one time a year. I personally view it as a precursor to the Christmas holidays and the new year fast approaching.

This year we spent it with my in-laws and I dressed up for the very first time. Well, I usually dress up but not with a 1960's dress and all it's fixings!
I wore a late 1950's/early 1960's mini floral day dress purchased from one of my favorite Etsy vintage sellers, HolliePoint.  I love that the seller carries a variety of sizes. I paired up my dress with some carved jewelry that was purchased at an antique mall in MO and a carved cream colored bracelet that was gifted to me. Luckily all the pieces matched even though they were purchased it separately. 
I love mom or mother brooches. I have a weakness for them as you can imagine. This sweet one was gifted to me. Isn't the pattern of the dress so pretty. Oh I LOVE these style of dresses!
Best part of the day by far was being with my husband and children. Nothing more comforting and they are what I am most thankful for.

  7. You look so timelessly beautiful - as though you could have stepped out of the very Rockwell painting that this post led off with.

    Wishing you and your family a resplendent holiday season!
