Holiday Lookbook!

Hey guys! I am so excited about this next week coming up and I have been getting into the holiday spirit. I thought it would be great to post a holiday themed lookbook with outfits that I like to wear at Christmas time and hopefully this will give you some ideas of what to wear for Christmas day, spending time with family and friends, or even just lounging around.

Snow Day

Jacket: Aeropostale, Boots: Payless, Hat: Forever 21, Scarf and Mittens: Walmart, Jeans: American Eagle

I am so in love with this jacket! It is fur lined and it's way warmer than I even imagined. I love the bright red color and it's just perfect for Christmas time. I got it from Aeropostale for 75 and it was originally 130! Now it is even cheaper on their website so if you like it go buy it! It comes in navy too. I also adore these Isotoner gloves, they are fuzzy inside and they keep my hands super warm!

Holiday Party
Dress: Forever 21, Tights: H&M, Belt: Forever 21, Shoes: Payless

This dress is comfortable but so cute! The blue polkadots on the dress didn't really show up in the pictures but they are adorable. The bow belt also goes perfectly with this look. I think this outfit would be great for a holiday party or even New Years. Also, in the top picture I'm holding an ornament that I made in kindergarten that has a picture of me in my favorite dress with a teddy bear on it! Don't you just love elementary school ornaments?

 Spending Time with Family and Friends
Sweater: Old Navy, Jeans: American Eagle, Boots: Aeropostale, Scarf: Aerie

I love the combination of this sweater and the scarf, I think it's a great example of how mixing prints can definitely work by sticking to a color scheme. This outfit is just so warm and cozy and it's perfect for when you want to look cute but you don't want to put a ton of effort into it. These Aero boots are new and they were so cheap! They were originally over 50 and I got them for under 20. Can't you tell I love a good deal ;)

Christmas Eve Mass
Dress: H&M, Tights: Jessica Simpson, Boots: Payless, Necklace: Forever 21

I would wear this look either to church or to a fancy holiday dinner or party. This dress makes me feel elegant and I love how the sleeves are loose then come together at the cuff. These boots are also a recent purchase from Payless and they have padding on the inside which makes them perfect if you will be on your feet for hours because your feet will be properly supported, which can sometimes be hard to find in boots. Forever 21 is the place I love to get jewelry because you can get great pieces for not a lot of money, like this Love necklace about 2 or 3 dollars.

Cozy, Comfortable Lazy Day
Sweater: Aerie, Shirt: DKNY, Leggings: Old Navy, Scarf: Old Navy, Socks: Old Navy

I'm sure everyone has days where they just want to be comfortable and lay around, and since it's the holiday time this is my comfy outfit with some festive touches. The sweater and the scarf have that knitted material which is super warm and my house is usually chilly in the winter so this is a perfect combo. And of course to make this look festive I have my green clothing and my red bobby pin which is subtle but still adds some Christmas spirit to the outfit without being over the top. In the winter I love curling up with a good book and some hot cocoa or tea and I'll definitely be doing that over my winter break!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
