Reader Request: What to wear for Thanksgiving

I love holiday movies like Love Actually, The Holiday, The Family Stone, and even Four Christmases (not my favorite, but I love Reese).  However, one thing that always makes me smile is seeing an entire family get all dressed up to eat.  Perhaps my family is just more casual than most, but for us, Turkey Day is about a big meal and football and is a decidedly casual affair.

One reader is about to spend her first Thanksgiving with her boyfriend's family and asked for some outfit suggestions, but nothing so fancy that she'll look out of place.  I love online shopping with a purpose, so here a couple of casual, but chic options that I think would be great for hanging out with family and eating a ton of food.

"Hi, I'm casual but dressed up enough to show that I care"
I love how sweater dresses look cute, but are as comfortable as pajamas. Pairing with boots keeps things casual but you still look like you made an effort.
Sweater: Gap, Dress: Forever 21, Boots: Corso Como, Purse: Fossil, Jewelry: Don't remember

"I'm here to eat and watch sports"
I think jeggings look fine as long as they are not worn like actual jeans with short tops.  Seriously.  They were made for lounging around and look cute long sweaters and chic ballet flats but start to look tacky when paired with crotch baring tops.
Cardigan coat and purse: Lands End Canvas, Sweater: J.Crew, Jeggings: Forever 21, Flats: Old Navy

Don't forget that I'm always accepting reader requests for outfits or home items, just let me know what you're looking to find and I'll try my best to help out.  I actually enjoy it!
