Elegant & Festive Clothes for the Holidays

festive clothes

One of my favorite things during this time of year is picking out the outfits I’m going to wear for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Eve. Each year I wear something different and how dressy the outfit is varies on what I’m doing and where I’m going. Normally for Christmas Eve I dress up because my family and I go to evening mass, for Christmas Day I lounge in something cozy, and for New Year’s Eve I wear a dress to go out in the town. I also love to incorporate the traditional holiday colors such as red and gold to make it feel a little more special for the occasion. Today I’ve rounded up some of my favorite festive clothes from dressy to casual chic to help you decide what to wear for the holidays.

From the pictures above, I’m really loving this organza puff sleeve blouse that’s under $20 dollars and the gold top handle purse, called No. 19 Mini Lady Bag, by Neely and Chloe. For my red lip I’m wearing this lipstick and lip liner in Ruby Woo.
