My ever so stylish sister is taking over the blog today and sharing her ideas for getting dressed up on turkey day.
Let’s be honest – you want to make sure you look your best at family holidays; your crazy old aunt (you know you have one too) will be taking pictures every chance she gets.

I think I’ll look like this, except 2 feet shorter and 30lbs heavier:
