{my christmas day outfit}















Velvet Leggings // White Sweater // Plaid Scarf (on sale for $18) // Red Bow Earrings // J Necklace // Monogrammed Clutch // Black Heels, old (similar) // It Cosmetics Lipstick in "it girl"

Velvet leggings, a big sweater, and my favorite plaid holiday scarf! This is the outfit I'll be wearing on Christmas day - sans the heels ;) The basics are simple but adding a bit of velvet creates a luxe look and the accessories help this pop. I found these leggings on a whim over Thanksgiving and can't stop wearing them - they don't stretch out in the knees either! Velvet is all the rage this season and I couldn't help but jump on the trend!

Let's talk blanket scarves too... I've been a fan since college and love wearing them to add an extra something something to my outfit. It's also the easiest way to stay warm (duh) since they're so big and can be wrapped around your shoulders! I love that this plaid adds some holiday spirit too. I'm not sure why plaid feels festive but it just goes with everything!

My family always wears their pajamas while we open our stockings in the morning and then we clean up and put on some comfy, festive clothes! It gives us time to cook some food and make our signature family drink while we FaceTime/call the rest of the family :) then we all sit down and open presents together. I love that we do it this way because we really take the time to spend the entire day together. Everyone puts such thought into each present for each other so we open presents one by one (not sure how this worked when we were kids haha). My sister, her boyfriend Mark, their two dogs, and Kyle will be with us for Christmas and a couple of days after so we have lots of bonding ahead!!

This Christmas is going to be very different because of my dad's declining health - so taking the time to soak up each moment and memory is going to be even more special. I find myself holding on to each second harder. 2017 has been the best and the worst year (don't we all say that every year though?) so ending on time spent with family only seems fitting.






Love Always,
