Me and my boyfriend have two thanksgivings to go to. One is a "friendsgiving" at my friends, the other is at my boyfriend's SUPER conservative Christian parents. I won't have time to change between both, but want to look cool and relaxed for my friends and "saintly" for the 'rents. How do I find an in between?
Aren't you quite the busy bee! Now that you've overcome the stress of scheduling, let's tackle your style issues. In the spirit of this holiday I want you to be thankful for 2 things: Sweater dresses and BIG bags. Both of these things will save you from appearing like a trollop in front of his parents or stuck up in front of your friends. Let me explain:

A conservative thanksgiving-
This Maroon sweater dress and Celine tote
will be your way to holiday transition. For the Christian parents wear the dress under a mid-length skater skirt. The layers make it look more put together and tasteful. Opt for flats and not heels. Think private school girl meets grown adult. The cross necklace is just a nice touch to gain some brownie points. So why the big bag you ask? Please proceed to my second outfit!

A thanksgiving fit for a friend-
You will be channeling Mary Poppins this holiday! Your tote
will carry all you need to turn your saintly self into a party gal. Ditch the skirt and let your sweater dress hang free. Pair it with some knee/thigh high boots and a floppy hat to up your trend game. Keep the cross or trade it for some cute accessories such as stacked rings.
