Festive avoidance has suit me quite well over previous years, that is, until I had a little man enter the world. I don’t enjoy eating ham, turkey, drinking beer, or devouring endless amounts of Holiday cookies while sitting cozily around the fireplace with my entire extended family. However, I do believe in spending quality time with family over the Holidays. Hence, my current residency (for the next week) in the Midwest to visit the family.
One might believe that I am beginning to sound like a complete grinch, but I am going somewhere with this…I think.
So once I birthed my son, all possibilities of avoiding Holiday spirit went out the door along with my ability to refrain from hiding this little Elf on the Shelf character, master the art of gift wrapping thousands of gifts, and get away with no Holiday decor. Despite all of this, it’s become quite festively interesting to create so much joy for my little guy. Additionally, I’ve busted out the Holiday fashion looks (which brings me to today’s post). If there’s any staple piece that should be in every woman’s life, it’s a moto jacket (a green one suitably works for the Holidays). This green moto jacket that I was gifted by GUESS is one of my absolute favorites from their Holiday collection and needless to say, I’ll be rocking it quite often.
Another classic piece is obviously the little black dress, but style is also defined by finding new ways to switch pieces up (like layering a flouncy A-line skirt over a textured black dress). It creates intricate depth and less of a boring look for this time of year.
