Thanksgiving Side Dish Ideas + Thanksgiving Day Outfit Inspiration

Nov 15, 2017

Can you guys believe Thanksgiving is a week away?  Today I wanted to share a few side dish ideas for the big day.  If I am being completely honest the side dishes are always my favorite part!

We typically skip lunch and eat around 4-5 so sometimes we like to have a small nibble/app before dinner.  A few ideas for nibbles and side dishes:

Pears + Blue Cheese + Prosciutto

Sweet Potato Nibbles

White Cheddar + Sage and Pomegranite Cheeseball

Brussels Sprouts Salad

We made this salad last year and will be making it again it was so yummy!

Chopped Harvest Salad

Broccolini with Cheese Sauce

Winter Kale Salad

Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Mac and Cheese

Loaded Baked Potato Casserole

Kale + Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

Arugula Caprese Salad

Roasted Cauliflower + Chickpeas and Roasted Okra




I also wanted to share a cute outfit idea for Thanksgiving.  I know I have shown this vest on here several times but I wear it often.  It is perfect to toss on over almost anything!  It is 40% off today too!  This dress is under $100 and loose enough to hide a food baby from Thanksgiving Day eats:)  I loved the olive green/black color combo for Fall.  For reference I am wearing an XS/S in the vest and a small in the dress.

My earrings are by T Marie– she designs some of my favorite jewelry and she has graciously offered you guys 15% off her site til tomorrow at midnight with code NATALIE15. You can shop all her gorgeous designs HERE.  I am thinking about getting my mom a pair of her earrings for Christmas.  Scroll to the bottom to see some of my other favorite T Marie earrings.

Dress | Vest (40% off)  | Earrings  (use code NATALIE15 to save 15%) | Purse | Booties | Sunglasses

A look at the dress without the vest.  It has really cute details on the shoulders and back. The dress does come fully lined with a black slip.

A few other favorite T Marie earrings- you can shop them all HERE.  Use code NATALIE15 to save til tomorrow night at midnight.

    Why are your recipes not at the top of the blog anymore? I use my phone to hop on and get recipes all the time and all tabs at the top are gone???

      Hey Courtney if you are reading on your phone you have to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the tabs. I am not sure why it is like that but you can still find all the tabs at the very bottom!
