Dressing for the Holidays: Part 1

Preparing for the holidays can be stressful. Between scheduling where you have to be, preparing food to bring, and gifts; the last thing on your mind is probably what you are going to wear. That is, until the morning of and you are running around And staring at your closet like it is from another world.

To help limit the crazines of the morning of, I’m going to do a series of posts on what to wear for family gatherings.

Today’s outfit would be my go-to outfit for family gatherings. It is comfortable, loose fitting (to help hide that extra cookie ..or 3) and it isn’t too warm. If your family is like mine, we often have gatherings at my grandparents and now that they are older, we actually use a gathering room in their assisted living apartments. If you have ever been in a similar establishment, you know they are often HOT. Well, as long as you are over the age of 10 and under the age of 55.



Why this is a great holiday outfit:

  1. Comfortable
  2. Festive – seriously, what is better than plaid this season?
  3. A bit of bling
  4. Not too warm (to counteract room temps near 80)
  5. Loose fitting to hide that extra serving of pie or whatever your holiday kryptonite is

What are your requirements for holiday outfits?

I hope you will come back for the next post in the series on Wednesday!

      Yes! I’m not sure how you can’t like something that is loungewear but is perfectly acceptable to be in public with. Patterned ones certainly add a dash of fun to any outfit 🙂
