Meeting the family: What to wear

Hello lovelies!
As you may know, I'm spending the holiday season with my boyfriend's family. 
You can read up here.
Well... yesterday was the first of these holidays. P.s. Happy belated Thanksgiving!
I took the opportunity to review my "what to wear" guidelines. 

All I was told about the feel/dress code for the event was that it was "casual". 
Helpful. Right?
If your significant other is like mine, you may not get any more than this to go by. Still, there are things you can do to ensure you are dressed properly. 

-If you have met any other (preferably female) family members, it is helpful to casually ask their advice on family event dress code. (facebook makes this easy as pumpkin pie)

-When all else fails, dress safe and adaptable. A dark pair of jeans and a cute top can be dressed up or down with accessories and needed. 
This is what I wore. 
Top and Scarf: H&M
Jeans: Abercrombie and Fitch
Shoes: Toms

Ring: Handmade
Nails: Essie Hot Cocoa

This outfit ended up being perfect for the event, though the picture's don't do it justice, as this was taken upon arriving back at home, after the six hour drive, and the event. 

I will also be spending Christmas and New Years (2 week trip) with his family, and will be sure to update what to bring on an extended (his) family event. 

What was your most memorable "meeting the family" moment?
