Happy Monday! I can't believe that it's already time for Christmas and Hanukkah, and the many gatherings that come along with it. Since so many of us struggle with what to wear when a new outfit isn't an option, I thought I'd devote several posts this week to sharing outfit ideas with a realistic angle.
I say that because, at least in small town Texas where I'm from, holiday gatherings don't always involve glittery jewelry, dresses or even high heels. When your family is sitting on the floor playing Mario Cart with solo cups full of Jack and Coke, it won't do to dress like you're off to have cocktails at Chateau Marmont. At the same time, you're likely to be photographed and you want to at least feel like your outfit is special and flattering. That's where I come in - here's the first in a series of ideas of what to wear this week and next:
Today I'm tacking the extended family gathering with dinner and presents:
I think that comfy cords, jeans or cropped pants will look totally festive with classic sweaters and blouses. I think I'll be wearing the first and second options this weekend!
What are your family gatherings like? Am I the only one struggling to fit in with the casual family in jeans?
