Day 1 – Holiday Outfits – Cotton Candy Canes.

Hey there, bow friends!

I’ve had finals this week and found myself getting distracted a lot.  One night I was procrastinating reminiscing and found my collaboration with Warby Parker.  I really loved that week of posts.  Inspired by that kind of fun, I decided to share 5 days worth of outfits that follow the theme of holiday get togethers.  No matter what you celebrate, there are always occasions to get a little snazzied up this time of year.  So let’s get to it!

Casual Winter outfit


I’m going to start out with a casual outfit.  Something comfortable to wear for movie night  at a friends or maybe even some shopping.  This outfit is a great example of the fact that I tend to wear a lot of black during the winter and I live in Florida.  This means I’m not going to be wearing huge coats or a lot of long sleeves as it isn’t extremely cold until a bit after the holidays.  But I’m doing this to just give you some ideas or inspiration.  If it’s cold where you are, by all means, throw on a parka.

I love this baby doll dress.  I’ve always thought I couldn’t wear one because it would cut me weird and make me look even shorter, but I’ve been proven wrong.  It’s extremely comfortable and great for wearing leggings or thick tights underneath.  If it were cool out, I’d probably throw on a leather jacket and a red lip to amp this dress up.Pink BootsTheses boots are just the right pop of color I like to add to an outfit.  They remind me of pastry sweets or Jigglypuffs.  Either way, perfect.  They are so comfortable and even warmer when I pair them with boot socks.  They work well against the snow and rain too.  An all around winner.  To go along with their , I went with a soft, mauvey pink ( Surprised it’s not a deep red?!  Me too.).

And that’s day one!  What would you wear for a casual holiday kick back?  Also, what kind of outerwear would you pair with this kind of outfit?  I need some ideas.  My brain is in a slump as I’ve just finished my finals.  Are you all out onto break?  I hope all your tests and things went well and you get to enjoy time off with family.

We shall talk soon!

    your boots are the prettiest pale pink I have ever seen! I love how you matched your lipstick so well with your shoes. It makes me happy when I picked out something that matches perfectly even if no one noticing but me 🙂 have a lovely night. I really like your blog and the way you write.
