Fashion Friday: My Holiday Outfits

Hey, friends!  For today’s Fashion Friday, I thought I’d share with you the outfits I put together for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!  Take a look!

Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve, we host lunch for hubby’s side of the family and my parents, then open gifts with all the Lattas.  Then, in the evening, we have a candlelight service at church.  While none of it is super-formal, I felt like dressing up a little for the occasion.  I chose an outfit that was festive yet comfortable, and appropriate for both events, as well as all the family photos I knew we would be taking.


Both my green dress and my cardigan came from my December Stitch Fix.  They were the two items I kept, and I love that not only are they great pieces on their own, they work together too!  I paired them with a wide belt from Pick Your Plum, black glittered tights, and tall black heeled boots.  To accessorize, I chose a layered bracelet from Charming Charlie, and my Star Necklace from Kendra Phillip.


My favorite finishing touch was that I was actually able to curl my hair with the help of my Christmas present from my in-laws!  The one and only thing I actually asked for this year was the Conair Curl Secret; I was super-intrigued by it even though I was a little skeptical too.  My hair is absolutely straight; there’s not a bit of natural curl or wave to it whatsoever, so I have a really hard time getting any kind of curl to go in, much less stay in.  But this actually worked!!  Like a charm!  It took a while since I have a lot of hair, but I got some fun beachy waves with my very first attempt!  Here’s one more quick family photo; you can see the bottom of the dress in this one, which is part of the fun.


Christmas Day

I absolutely love that I don’t have to travel anywhere on Christmas day!  We have a quiet morning together opening gifts and spending time just the three of us, then my parents come over around 1 PM.  Later in the evening, my grandmother, my in-laws, and some good friends come over for dinner.  I didn’t really “need” to dress up since it was a casual family day, but once I finally changed out of my pajamas at noon, I decided on this festive outfit that still made me totally comfortable for everything we were doing.


The gold polka dot shirt is from my November Stitch Fix and I built the rest of the outfit around it because I love it so much.  I thought the metallics were perfect for the hlidays!  I layered it over top of a black lace dress from Express and a pair of black leggings.  The leggings allowed me to get down on the floor and play games with the kiddos without worrying about being unladylike.  To accessorize, I chose a gold belt from NY&Co, a bracelet from Charming Charlie, and my Kendra Phillip star again.  I finished off the look with my Yosi Samra ballet flats from my trip to Lucky FABB; they’re nude with black lace.  Unfortunately, you can’t see them too well in the photo…this is the only one hubby took where you can see them at all; apparently he was more interested in other parts of the outfit. 😉


On Christmas Day, I also got a chance to play around with the Curl Secret for the second time.  I came at it with a plan this time and I liked the results even better than my first attempt.  I am so excited I can get curls so easily!  Meanwhile, what about you?  Did you go casual or dressy this year?  I’d love to hear about the holiday outfits you put together!

Hugs & Glitter,
