The Holidays are Here!

Can y'all believe that Thanksgiving is tomorrow?? And you know what that means- Christmas is coming! The holidays are one of my favorite times of the year- I can't wait for the tree to go up and to exchange presents on Christmas morning. I know some people already have their lights up, and a few start listening to Christmas music at 12:01 on November 1st. I try to contain my excitement and wait at least until after Thanksgiving (although Zac and I did watch Love, Actually last week).

Since the holidays are coming, that means it's time to start thinking about holiday outfits! The good thing about being in college is that most of my 'holiday parties' require little more than a crazy Christmas sweater or a pair of red jeans. But I still have a few formal events and of course Christmas events with my family. I wanted to put together a few looks that will work for any holiday gathering, whether you're sipping cocoa by the fire or laughing over cocktails at your office party.

1. This is totally something I could wear to my casual-dressy Christmas Eve celebration with my family! I sometimes all the time overdress, but this is the perfect mix of casual with a little festive sparkle. The hot pink skater skirt is a fresh look amongst a sea of red and green, and the sequined Alice + Olivia top add just enough glitter! The black tights and ankle boots help tone down the rest of the outfit.

2. If your Christmas is a low-key affair, this combination is festive without being over the top. And who wouldn't love to wear those plaid loafers all season long?

3. I have been lusting after this Kate Spade dress since I first saw Carly from The College Prepster rocking it at NYFW. Since it won't be in my budget for a long, looooong time, I can still dream, right? This all-Kate look is something I would love to rock at a fancier event like Zac's formal, but you could wear it at a cocktail gathering or maybe even an office party if it's held at a venue other than your workplace.

I hope everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving! I've been home since Thursday, and thankfully avoided the winter storm that's about to batter the North East! Fingers crossed there's better weather when I return to school...Happy Thanksgiving!
