Holiday Outfit Inspiration

Hey, friends!  I can’t believe there are only four days until Christmas!  I don’t know what your holiday calendar looks like, but we have family events going on today, Tuesday, and Wednesday, plus our anniversary on the 29th and New Year’s Eve right after!  Which means I need quite a few festive holiday outfits.  Today I wanted to show you a few combinations I put together with things I already had in my closet that you might be able to sort of recreate with things already in yours!  There are a few basic pieces that play a key role in most of these, so as you start planning, think about which of these things you might already have.

A dress or skirt in a holiday color {red, green, black, white, burgundy, metallics}
A neutral jacket or cardigan
A belt
Metallics: anything sparkly, shiny, gold or silver!  Jewelry, belts, tops…anything you’ve got!

Outfit 1: This one combines a holiday colored dress, a neutral cardigan {with metallic accents!}, a belt, and boots.

I absolutely love the dress and cardigan, which both came in my most recent Stitch Fix, and the color of the dress is perfect for the holidays.  I’m thinking this might be my go-to choice for Christmas Eve, when we have a family celebration in the afternoon followed by a candlelight service at our church.

Outfit 2: This one combines a holiday colored skirt, a jacket, boots, and a bit of sparkle in the top and the jewelry.

This skirt also happens to be from Stitch Fix…they sent me pretty much the only green clothing I own!  I don’t normally gravitate toward buying green things when I shop, but I love them on me and they’re especially great this time of year.  This outfit is a bit more casual, so I’m thinking maybe I’ll use it for one of our more low key family gatherings.

Outfit 3: This one is a holiday colored dress, belt, and boots combo with a little sparkle in the necklace.

I got this red dress from…Stitch Fix.  Yep.  Gosh, sorry.  I promise this isn’t a sponsored post for them!  I didn’t even realize it when I was pulling photos, it only occurred to me right this second as I was typing things out that it’s the source of the first three outfits!  Anyway, I love the bright red color and the fit of the dress.  This one might be for Christmas Day.

Outfit 4: This one combines a holiday colored dress, jacket, belt, and lots and lots of sparkles!

This dress is from Forever 21, and the jacket…ah, my beloved jacket, is from DKNY.  It’s that one piece of clothing I’ll wear until it’s literally got holes all over it.  The shoes are from Sears, and are nothing but glitter, and the crystal accessories are too.  There are actually tiny sparkles in the dress also, but you can’t tell in the photo.  This one would be great for a New Year’s Eve party!

Option 5: Metallic Shirt plus sparkly belt

I am in love with this shirt…which *mumble* camefromStitchFix.  Honestly, guys, I didn’t realize it until just now.  Apparently they did an awesome job of styling me this holiday season!  I love the metallics for the holidays, and thought it would be great for New Year’s Day!

I hope you’re inspired to find some of the same kinds of items in your own closet and put together some awesome holiday outfits!

Before I close, I need to tell you some great and some sad news.  The great news is that I just found out this week that I won a major contest with P&G Beauty and Lucky Magazine to be one of four “New Voices of Beauty” Bloggers for P&G Beauty {Pantene, CoverGirl, Olay, and Secret} in 2014!!!  It’s hugely exciting and I can’t wait to see all the new opportunities it brings in the new year!  But it does mean that although nothing will change at One Artsy Mama, I will have less time to contribute elsewhere, so this is my last style post here at My Favorite Finds.  I’m so grateful to Carrie for having me here this year and letting me share things with you each month.  Best wishes for a fabulous 2014 in every way, and I hope you’ll come visit me at One Artsy Mama often!

Big hugs & Lots of Glitter,
