Word to the wise: anyone who tells you that they already know exactly what they're packing for Thanksgiving break is a flat-out liar. Or, like, a really good planner and someone we could all stand to learn something from. Either way, packing for a four-day weekend can be harder than packing for a two-week trip—because if you're going away for a legit long-vacay, you at least have an excuse to stow away half of everything you own.
For a shorter stay-over (and one that revolves around eating, at that), it's way better to condense your clothes into a bag or two and be comfy—which translates into cutting back on shoes and purses. *GASP* I know, I know. The HORROR. Let's be honest though: you're praahbably not going to clomp around the kitchen in those strappy suede stilettos you just bought. And do you really need to bring a giant tote when you'll be parked on the couch in a food coma for most of the weekend anyway? That's what I thought. ~Tough Love~
So, in an effort to help guide you through your inevitable procrastination, we went ahead and put together an entire Thanksgiving wardrobe that's all ready to be crammed into a carry-on.

Maybe you're meeting up with friends for lunch. Maybe you're headed to that one place in town where you ALWAYS run into EVERYBODY. Or maybe you just need an excuse to venture outside and change out of your PJs. No matter what you're doing during the day, being at home shouldn't be an excuse to look as lazy as you feel. Besides, no one has to know that you're actually wearing jeggings.
