The Holidays at Home

The holiday season is vastly approaching and plans for this year are taking a major shift from year's past. Christmas parties are already being cancelled. And you know what - I'm ok with that. This year's gatherings will be a little smaller... a little more intimate. We'll still be celebrating with friends and family, but in a much more casual setting. We'll be celebrating in the comfort of home.

It won't matter whose house I'm at this holiday season - my home, my parents, or my friends... I still want to look festive. Today on the blog I'm going to give you some outfit ideas for being comfy and festive at home for the holidays.

If there's one thing I love wearing, it's a full skirt. Thrown on with a cute sweatshirt or sweater, you will instantly look festive and holiday ready. I also love a mid length tulle skirt because it's so functional at home. Whether I'm hanging on the couch or sitting on the floor opening presents with my kids, a tulle skirt will lay well and give you the comfort (and coverage) you need so you can focus on your company rather then wardrobe malfunction. These tulle skirts are CRAZY affordable at under $30.

I love the thought of throwing on a sheer top with a fitted cardigan. Such a girly edgy vibe. I'll be pairing this with a tulle skirt and lug sole boots this Christmas season.

The great thing about a tulle skirt is that you can rock pretty much any footwear you're in the mood for - trendy sneakers, booties, and of course, a killer pair of heels. I love pairing a girly skirt with a cute combat boot for a little edge.

To classy up your holiday outfit, try throwing on a sleek pair of dress pants with a dressy sweater. I'm in LOVE with these dress pants. They pull on, have a fit identical to yoga pants, and are incredibly high waisted. Perfect for all those cute cropped sweaters. One way I love to style these pants is to tuck in my sweater and throw on a lux leather wrap belt. You can find my leather belt here.

Another holiday classy option is to pair a long dress with a sweater. Think about all your summer maxi dresses. Now consider layering them with a sweater. Cropped or long, this look is so on trend right now. This leopard print dress is a set that comes with a cropped sweater to wear over the top... and I'm in love! I just ordered this set and plan on pairing it with my lug sole boots. Classy with an edgy vibe.

It's super easy to be holiday cool while still dressing comfortable. These faux leather leggings have been a staple in my closet for years. They are so easy to dress up or down and can be styled in countless ways. Here, I have them paired with a cool sweatshirt and glitzy sneakers. Or try wearing on oversized sweater vest with a button-down shirt. I love the elevated minimalist vibe of this sweater vest... and it's under $30!

I've also linked my go-to leather leggings for another trendy cool option. Both leggings are interchangeable and will bring an edgy vibe to any outfit.

Lastly, let's talk dressing holiday casual. A comfortable pair of jeans with an unexpected sweater will elevate your outfit from casual drab to holiday fab. (sorry... couldn't help myself). A classic v-neck tee paired with a grandpa sweater will keep you cozy and on trend. Or throw on a white button-down and bulky sweater vest. I found this cable knit sweater vest for under $30! Be sure to edge up your outfit with a cute pair of lug boots.

So whether you choose to dress chic or casual... classy or cool, be sure to tag me in your holiday posts - I can't wait to see all the festive looks you put together!

Happy shopping!
