Floral Blouse-Thanksgiving Day Outfit

Happy Thursday! Two weeks from today, we will be gathered together with our families to eat the greatest meal of the year. I can already smell pumpkin pie!

A few days ago I popped into H&M and found this pretty floral blouse. The price point was good, and I thought it would be a great option for a Thanksgiving day outfit.

If you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner, you might not want to wear high heels (Haha!), so flats will be a better option. I am cooking Thanksgiving, but we are having an early Thanksgiving dinner with my Dad and his wife so I can wear the heels there.

Floral Blouse-Thanksgiving Day Outfit If the weather is cold, you can add a cardigan to this outfit. Layering is always a good idea this time of year. I am wearing an off-white cami under the blouse.

Because this is a trend, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, but I wanted to add one to my winter wardrobe. This teddy bear coat is from Target and of course sizes are going quick!!

Beauty For The Heart~~As I think about the upcoming holiday season, I’m always reminded that it’s not happy for everyone. I have been there, and I understand.

This quote by Max Lucado is a good reminder. 

“You’ll get through this. It won’t be painless. It won’t be quick. But God will use this mess for good. In the meantime don’t be foolish or naive. But don’t despair either. With God’s help, you will get through this.

You, who are torn between families? You, who are still grieving the loss of a precious friend, your loved family member? You, who are wondering if in this season of miracles yours may have been lost?

Is it possible that God is using the trials of this season to strengthen you? I think so.” 

My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested, it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger, it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking. James 1:2-4 (TPT)

Have a blessed day!

  1. I ordered this blouse. I like the colors and the style. It’s difficult to tell how roomy it is and I’m hoping I bought the right size. Anyway, the teddy bear coat – i wonder about the material looking matty over time from wear. Your thoughts?

  2. Sooooo cute!!! Great inexpensive options for a holiday outfit! I’d love you to style a few that would be cute with an apron on, as we so end up giving love to our families in the kitchen! And, I enjoy it!
    I very much loved your BFTH today. It is beautiful. I saw on television one lady screaming “I don’t want prayers” regarding this latest shooting. I also have a friend that doesn’t believe in prayer whatsoever. I have a hard time understanding that because I pray a lot and for specific people every day and night. I am happy to pray, and I believe that if we pray as a group (near or afar) God will listen. I wish we could start a national weekend of prayer for our country and it’s turmoils. Thank you Cyndi for being so inspirational. Your friend in Calif., Cat

  3. Just wanted to say, you always look great. I love your style. And I hope you never stop blogging. 😉 I know it’s hard work, but you encourage me everyday to keep trying!

  4. Hi Cyndi… I actually bought the same teddy bear coat yesterday.. same color, same size HA! 😉 love the heels too. thx for sharing and have fun with all the kids this weekend.. you got this!!
    P.S. so sad about the shooting, praying!

    1. I’m trying to remember what socks you recommend when wearing booties? If you get a chance to answer, that would be great! Thank you so much

  5. Very cute! I am sad about the shooting also. 🙁 I wish this would stop. Praying for our country & this madness to stop..
    Happy Thanksgiving early!

  6. Dear Cyndi,
    I am still grieving for the victims of the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh and now another shooting happens in LA. I know God has a reason for all that happens but sometimes it is so hard when we hear about all these awful things happening. Please keep your encouraging words coming.


  7. Cyndi,

    I rarely leave comments, but had to today. I have been struggling with a health issue and today my stress level was at a 10. Your “Beauty for the Heart” quote was a huge blessing to me. Even though I knew everything you said was true, I just needed to hear it. God spoke to me through you today and brought me the peace that I needed at exactly the time I needed it. He is amazing!

    I look forward to your blog everyday – please don’t stop. You are a beautiful person inside and out.

    Thank you!

  8. Cyndi, I’ve always wanted to tell you that I love your outdoor photos; especially this time of year when the leaves 🍁 have beautiful colors. We don’t get much of a fall in South Texas. We go from summer to winter it seems. Beautiful fall outfit too!

  9. You look so pretty in that burgundy! And the photos with the orange tree behind you–so beautiful. Thanks! I love this outfit. 🙂

  10. Great outfit. Love the teddy bear coat. I didn’t know they were a thing, but LOVE it. I see its out of stock when I go to Target site. Clicked the “notify me” when its available. As for the gift guide, great job. I’m glad you are sending them out now. I like to shop early. In fact, I already feel behind with the nice weather we’ve been having my way….. its hard to get into the holiday shopping mode. What a fun weekend to have the kids coming your way.

    1. Hi Kathy, I jut bought the teddy bear coat yesterday at my local Target. They had one left in my size/color. But they also had different colors. Hope this helps 😉

  11. love the outfit especially how comfy and warm that coat looks… sounds like a lot of fun is going to be happening at your place this weekend. I guess there is never really an empty nest.
    Thoughts and prayers for those families grieving today, such a sad time.

  12. Feeling somewhat close to the Thousand Oaks tragedy as our son graduated from Cal Lutheran University there in TO. The Borderline Wed Night line dancing was huge for CLU students. He is now a teacher in Simi Valley, just minutes away from TO. He is anxiously waiting for news of friends and former students being onsite as he’s been teaching for 6 years.

  13. Such a pretty floral blouse. Love the sleeves!
    I agree on spending little on a teddy bear coat as I’m sure it’s a passing trend. It looks so cozy, soft and warm.

  14. I just love your ‘Teddy’ coat. It looks so cuddly and such a warm colour. Very seasonal.

  15. Cute outfit! I, like you, am hosting Thanksgiving for my family. I would love to see an outfit suggestion or two that would be cute but still allow me to function with cooking etc. Thanks and have a great day with all those kiddos:).

  16. I love this outfit! Yes, the holidays are tough. Our parents are getting older and we still have to divide our time between families. I dread it every year! I just have to stay focused and keep my eyes on HIM.
