Holiday Series – Christmas Outfit

Here we are friends, just days away from Christmas. By now you’ve probably got your shopping done, baking done, cards done, decorating done, grocery shopping done or at least a list made. But do you know what you’ll be wearing on the big day? Well hold tight because you’re about to get lots of inspiration from this installment of The Holiday Series created by my energetic and talented friend, Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood.
Of course there are a lot of factors to consider when planning an outfit. Location being one – are you traveling or staying home? Entertaining or being entertained? And of course what the weather will be like. Here in Orlando it’s usually pretty warm but every once in awhile a cold front blows through.
Since I host Christmas and the weather will be right about 80 degrees I chose a lightweight sweater (similar under $13!) and my faux leather leggings (similar). I’ll be up and down and these leggings are super comfortable.
The sweater (similar under $13!) has a cute tie detail on the sleeve. I purchased it last week at the outlet mall, the shop was called Roz & Alli. I hadn’t shopped there before but I was interested so we stopped in. I noticed right away that all the price tags said Dressbarn so I’m guessing they re-branded. If you’re local there’s a Roz & Alli in Waterford. The sweater was reasonably priced to begin with at $29 but it was marked down to $14.99. It was an additional 30% off so, yes, it was right about $10! Steal! While I chose the creamy white color my friend Windy chose a red one. This sweater I’ve linked is similar to mine and comes in red and cream. It’s on sale and such a great deal!
I decided to wear my open toe booties (on sale!) since I’d be up and down all day and these are just super comfortable.
To add just a bit of color I wore this stacked stone necklace (similar).
So let’s see what the other ladies are wearing on Christmas Day!

The Holiday Series: What to Wear for Christmas, the biggest Multi-Blogger Collaboration.
15 Fashion Bloggers talk about their Christmas Outfits + Traditions!

Ada: “Christmas is my favorite holiday – as if you didn’t guess by how I decorate – so of course I had to wear an outfit that says Christmas. Fair isle and red buffalo plaid do that for me. The red gloves are a bonus. I had to be comfortable too for all the yummy food we will eat and since I will be spending Christmas at home this year with my immediate family, I chose a simple+casual look. Gëzuar Krishtlindjet!! That means «Merry Christmas» in Albanian.”
 
Christine: “This romantic Victorian inspired outfit is perfect for a casual Chic Christmas. I absolutely love the delicate écru lace blouse and black velvet combination. It’s a chic alternative to any holiday dress outfit. Joyeux Noël! “
 
Whitney: “This year I’ll be sharing double the love since I will be spending Christmas Day with my boyfriend’s family as well as my own!  We will be hopping from family party to family party so I need something to wear that is festive, comfy (for all that eating) and practical for braving the Michigan elements. “
 
Kimberly: “On Christmas Eve I go out to dinner with my family I would wear this basic, classic outfit. As a coat I will be wearing this leopard coat. It’s the warmest coat I have and it was a great buy. It’s about 20 years old. On Christmas I go for a more casual look and like to be comfy.”
 
Roxanne: “I am going to be away in Munich during Christmas, but here is a festive look that I will be posting on Glass of Glam soon! I am Jewish so I don’t celebrate Christmas, but I like to partake in festive outfits and go to holiday parties! This red coat screams “holiday” to me!”
 
Kellyann: “I host Christmas Day at our house so not only do I want to be comfortable but I want to look good as well.  Since I have no idea what the weather will really be like that day – it could be 80 or it could be 50, welcome to Florida – I chose a lightweight sweater with fun sleeves and faux leather leggings.”
 
Jennie: “Over the years I always dressed up for Christmas to make the event even more special, especially as there were multiple family events over the day. The past couple of years I have been drawn to more comfortable looks as I now host the family celebrations in my home. My cranberry polka dot vest and plaid scarf bring some festivity to my comfortable jeans and boots.”

Shelbee: “I never was a fan of holiday-themed clothing at all, but this year I decided to go outside of my comfort zone for my Christmas outfit.  I chose this adorable black and green dress from Rosegal which features a festive winter scene on the skirt.  It is short sleeved so I layered a long sleeve back tee under it for extra warmth and my  silver velvet booties completely the look perfectly.  Happy Holidays to everyone!”


Kristin: “Our last two years in Germany we have had friends and family come visit us for Christmas. This year my husband and I will be enjoying the holiday by ourselves (along with our pup) so we will make a nice dinner at home and pop some champagne. That’s why I’m keeping it casual with a bell sleeve sweater, jeans, and red heels. Happy Holidays, everyone!”
 
Michelle: “I love this layered look for picking a Christmas tree, Christmas caroling, walking around the neighborhood to see the Christmas lights or any other outdoor activity around the holidays. This look is casual but still festive thanks to my plaid vest, cozy hat and red lip! Finish it off with a hot cocoa to keep warm!”


Linda: “This has been my Christmas Day outfit for the last three years. A skirt I found at Winners ( TJMaxx equiv) over a decade ago but on that is timeless.  Sometimes I wear it with a black cashmere sweater or with a white lace sweater. I love the festive yet fun look of Santa and the skateboards.

Merry Christmas from my home to yours ( and from Lou too).”


Lizzie: “I love untraditional holiday looks and think this look would be perfect for Christmas Eve! I adore the velvet and sparkle with the unexpected color combo and print.”
 
Lee: “This year we are spending Christmas at the beach.  I am packing light with comfortable clothing.  This outfit is perfect for any occasion.  I love leather front leggings and this faux fur coat paired together!”


Monica: “Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate!  Christmas is such a special time for me because growing up we had a lot of traditions in our household and some of those traditions I’ve taken with me in my own home with my fiance and fur babies.  I hope everyone has a great Christmas!”


Chrissy: Christmas morning starts at home in our pjs, but we’ve been known to drop in on family and friends as the day wears on.”

    You look gorgeous. Love how you dressed up those fantastic flattering leggings. The shoes and necklace are beautiful too and what a cute new top for a steal! I really loved your at-home photos too. You are the hostess with the hostess at your beautiful home decorated for Christmas.

    This was another great collaboration and you look gorgeous my friend.

      Thanks Blaire! My baking is done as far as baking to give away. Christmas dessert is a whole other thing! One year I made a peppermine cheesecake and it was delicious, not sure if I’ll repeat that or go for something else. I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas, I hope you are blessed beyond belief in the new year!

    Of course your lipstick matches the package because you are just that good. This is the perfect outfit for the hostess with the mostess…that’s YOU! What a great deal you got on that sweater. I love the cute tie detail on the sleeves. You are killing with the faux leather leggings and I’m still kinda regretting returning mine, but I’d be so self conscious after the looks for the K&K. What party poopers😉. Happy Hump Day friend! XOXO

      How funny, I had no idea my lipstick matched, lol! I wrap only my nieces gifts in the pink paper but it’s my favorite of course. People are kinda funny about the leggings, if your family causes you to doubt then you did the right thing. I’m sure you looked marvelous in them but if you don’t feel confident you won’t wear them. They are just so darn comfortable and lighter weight than my black leggings so I grab them more often. And listen, I have no idea what they look like from behind. Who knows? I may scare small children!
      I hope you are having a wonderful week my friend!!

    There ya go, giving me more ideas on how to wear my leather leggings! This outfit is perfect for hosting. We are hosting the day AFTER Christmas, so maybe on Christmas I’ll go ultra-casual… maybe even stay in my PJ’s while I enjoy my hubby’s homemade cinnamon rolls that he always makes and a mimosa! Ahhh! Can’t wait, can’t wait. Altho, I had to laugh, because I am not done with my Christmas cards (eek, going to be late), baking or wrapping! Wah!!!

      Staying in pjs while eating cinnamon rolls and sipping mimosas sounds DIVINE!!! I was going to make a breakfast casserole but my parents like to eat an early lunch so I’m not sure if that will ruin our appetites. My kids don’t get up too early anymore. I love reading about everyone’s relaxing mornings with yummy breakfasts. Maybe I can talk my parents into coming over later, lol! Oh well, it’s all good.
      But girl, you better wear those leggings!
      Have a great one Carrie!
