TGIF everyone! Can you believe it is EIGHT DAYS until CHRISTMAS? And in just one little week it'll be Christmas Eve! Are you done your shopping? I only have a few small gifts left to pick up and a few things I'm waiting on to come in the mail, but I'm feeling pretty good about being done on time this year! I'm finishing up sending out Christmas cards, I've been doing them in batches because my hand cramps up and I like to take time and think about what I want to say in each card, so I'm feeling great about that. Tomorrow I'm heading up to my friend Jackie's house for an ugly sweater party with a bunch of friends from high school/my hometown and then on Saturday is my dad's extended family's annual white elephant/pasta Christmas party. It's always a fun time to get together with family members, sip some wine, play some games, eat the tastiest homemade pastas, and give out silly presents.
With all these events on the horizon, and all the events that have happened the past weekends (plus it gets dark at like 4pm) I have really been slacking on taking outfit photos. Therefore, I wanted to put together an inspiration collage on some of my favorite pieces I've been seeing that would create darling holiday looks. I hope to shoot some outfits this weekend and have them up for you next week, but for now I leave with you this round-up of festive, fun holiday pieces that I would not mind adding to my own wardrobe.
I own the red heels and I can't wait to pull them out on Christmas Eve for church with my family followed by a Chinese food dinner (our tradition) and then continue wearing them all winter to work! I wore the plaid Old Navy skirt on Thanksgiving and it was such a steal at only $7. It does run large, I wish I had sized down, but I did get the Tall and recommend it for length for anyone who has a problem looking appropriate in most mini-skirts like me. I'm really lusting after that BaubleBar necklace (currently 25% off!) and that cashmere-cotton blend button down, maybe a little Christmas present to myself?
What're you planning on wearing to holiday parties and events? I hope you have a great Thursday!
