Happy Friday, everyone. I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday! I spent time with family, reflected on my many blessings, and of course, ate. Every year, my Mom makes a sweet potato dish topped with toasted/melted marshmallows. It's my favorite and it only happens once a year, so that's always the highlight! What's your favorite part of Thanksgiving?

Let's get on to it! Today we're taking it easy, as we hope all of you are, and keeping the content light with a classic favorites collection. Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope all of you are out celebrating the holiday with your loved ones. I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for you! Thank you so much for your support and for taking the time to read and view our posts. I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of this blog and wearing all of the hats that I do to deliver quality! If it weren't for all of you, The Closet by Christie would never have evolved into the website we are today and it certainly wouldn't be as much fun for me.

Our 3rd year was surely a whirlwind and we made a lot of positive changes and improvements to the website. Who knows what our 4th year will be like; we turn 4 in mid-January! Thank you for joining us on this crazy journey.

To express our gratitude to you, get ready for a lot of posts from us! We're about to start a holiday countdown in a BIG way. That's all I can reveal for now but believe me, you're all going to love it!

We're just one day away from Thanksgiving! Boy, did this holiday sneak up on us. This is such a tough holiday to dress for because everyone celebrates it so differently. What if you have two different parties to stop by and the attire is the complete opposite? That's the question we're addressing this week with our two-part series!

Earlier this week, we started out with the building blocks. We walked you through the steps of how to create a casual look that can easily be transitioned (see previous post: Transitioning Thanksgiving Style From Casual To Chic, Pt.1). So, what's next? The transition to chic, of course! Read on to see how we transitioned our casual look without the fuss.

Here's how to transition from casual to chic in just one step!

Transitioning Thanksgiving Style From Casual To Chic, Pt. 1

Have you ever seen the movie 'Four Christmases,' starring Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn? It's a comedy that hit theaters in 2008 and it's about a couple that struggles to make it to four different holiday gatherings in one day. Four holidays are ambitious but with the modern blended family, this is a plot that's all too familiar for many. To avoid making a difficult choice, some couples might opt to have Thanksgiving dinner with one family and dessert with the other family. Young adults might be spending the early part of the day at their mom's house and head on over to their dad's for the evening. You might even be rushing off to a Friendsgiving gathering to end your day!

Just like no two families are alike nowadays, no two holidays are alike either! Some families lounge in front of the TV watching football, while other families have a more formal celebration. Now just a few days away from the big Thanksgiving holiday, we're faced with what to wear. Because all of these celebrations are so different, wearing the same outfit may not be appropriate. 

So, how do we cope? Should we bring several outfits and change in the car? Of course not! This week we're bringing you a thorough two-part guide on transitioning your Thanksgiving style from casual to chic. Read on today to find out the first step, which is creating a casual look that can be transitioned easily. Check back here on Wednesday to find out how we transitioned this look from casual to chic in just 1 step!
