I’m so excited that we are near the holidays! Being 12 days away from Christmas is the both the worst and best delayed gratification that exists. I mean, I know I only have 5 more workdays, but they are going be be the longest workdays of the year!
This year, I’m bringing back a tradition I started 2 years ago by putting together 12 days of holiday outfits to complement the 12 days of Christmas!
To start, I went with an outfit that is perfect to wear when both cutting down your Christmas tree and decorating it!
In most cases, cutting down the tree requires about 50 layers of clothing but down here (and as it seems lately–up north in some parts!) it isn’t quite that cold yet to add so many layers. I’m happy to report that it has cooled down a bit at night and in the early morning around here, so a bit of light layering is something we can definitely get away with!
When cutting down and trimming the tree, comfort and warmth are two priorities. In this particular outfit, I thought a simple layering with a slightly thermal gingham button down and fairisle sweater would work just swimmingly.
Not trying too much to get into the whole “red and green” ugly Christmas sweater aspect of the holidays, I tried a new color palette that integrates just as well with the “winter” theme.
A soft blue, warm off-white, and true red marry well to create an effortless and classic combination that will work both during and after the holidays.
To piggyback off the class colors, I added a soft off-white bejeweled beanie I scooped off Poshmark last December and my tried-and-true brown riding boots from Corso Como Footwear. I swear, these boots might get as much play in my winter wardrobe as my socks do!
Enjoy your last week before the holiday and keep warm 🙂
