holiday. outfits.

So, it’s officially December!  Yay!  To be honest, I’m not sure where Thanksgiving Break just flew on by and here we are.

Personally, this is my favorite time of the year.  I’m a big fan of the holidays I live for all things ho-ho-ho.  From the wrapping of presents to the shopping (duh!) to the festive decorations, I just love it all.  The worst part is when it’s all over…let’s not even go there.

With the holiday season fast-approaching (actually, it’s already here!), I thought I would share a few of my most seasonal outfits from last weekend.

Christmas is so much more than the typical red and green that it so often gets associated with. Fair Isle sweaters, pretty black patent ballet flats, bow headbands (heck, bow-everything!), wool skirts and sequins galore are just a few of the things that come to mind when I think of the holidays.

black. friday.

While some people bundle up in their warmest (and often frumpiest attire) for Black Friday, I did quite the opposite.  Take note, however, that I didn’t have to stand in any annoying lines waiting to get inside anywhere.  Nope,  I went outlet shopping with the fam in the wee hours of the night (or should I say morning?!).  It was super cold, but I simply cannot bring myself to not dress cute when I know that I’m going to be popping into stores like Kate Spade.

My outfit consisted of my favorite J.Crew black-and-white striped shirt, a red corduroy skirt and boutique necklace.  Oh, and I can’t forget my black sweater tights and coat which kept me warm and cozy!  Don’t be surprised if you see this exact same ensemble showing up on my Instagram feed in the coming weeks.

small. business. saturday.

Nothing starts the holiday season off right like a preppy tartan print (take note, I live for J.Crew’s city mini paper-bag skirts!).  Even better when you have a glittery skinny belt to add some dazzle.  Classic black ballet flats = standard.     

sunday. funday.

For outfit-number-three, though a tad cliche, I kept it casual in green denim by Blank.  To my defense, however, it was December 1st.  To achieve that effortless look that I so often strive for, I threw on a chambray shirt (yes, I finally got one - more on that in a future post!) and slipped into my sequined, peep-toe bow flats by Kate Spade. #bowsonthetoes    

What’s your go-to attire for the holidays?
