Lyn’s Christmas Outfit Ideas

Hi everyone, it’s Lyn here! Sometimes I spend so much time preparing for Christmas, baking, decorating, wrapping presents that I forget to think about what I want to wear! This year I remembered to do some planning ahead of time so I wanted to share with you some of my favorite options for Christmas outfits.

Everybody has their own tradition. My family usually goes out for a nice dinner on Christmas Eve and then stays home and cooks a huge feast for Christmas Day. I came up with two different options: one of which is a bit dressier while the other is perfect for lounging at home.

Vince Camuto One Shoulder Ruffle Top $119 on sale for $71.40 as soon as I saw this shirt, I fell in love. I love both the one shoulder and the ruffles. I feel like this shirt would be a great option for New Years Eve as well. You can also dress it up even more by pairing it with black pants and heels or go a little more casual with jeans. I originally saw it in red which I thought would be perfect for the holidays but I ended up going with the black since I thought I would get more wear out of it. The best part about this shirt is that it is currently on sale at Nordstrom and Lord and Taylor. Hurry up and grab it though because sizes are selling out! I’m also linking a similar version that comes in a few different colors.

BP. V-Neck Dress $49 on sale for $25.50 this dress actually just arrived today and I am so excited to wear it. It has the look of a sweater dress but is much lighter and is super soft inside. It would be super cute paired with leggings and booties or with over the knee boots.

SPANX Faux Leather Leggings $98 I just started getting into the faux leather legging trend and so far I am really enjoying it. They are still pretty comfortable but definitely make an outfit a bit more edgy. The Spanx ones are on my wish list but I haven’t made the splurge yet. I currently own a pair from Express that I really like although I wish I had gotten them in the petite size because they are a bit long on me.

I also just ordered these from Athleta and I am excited to try them out. They are currently on sale and all sizes appear to be fully stocked. They look like a good cross between a workout legging (which is usually what I prefer, like the Align pant from Lululemon) and a trendier legging AND they are high waisted.

Sole Society Kinney Over the Knee Boot $149.95 I also think the dress would look super cute with over the knee boots. I bought this pair from Sole Society a couple of months ago and I am in love. I usually have to buy wide calf boots and I was having trouble finding a pair of over the knee boots that came in wide calf and that I liked. When I saw these on the Nordstrom website, I ordered them immediately. They do fit my calf although I don’t have a ton of extra room. They seem to stay up pretty well and they are comfortable. There are not a ton of sizes left so I am also linking to the Sole Society site where they are actually on sale but also only have a couple of sizes available.

Forever 21 Faux Fur Vest $37.90 If you are feeling crazy, you can also add on a fur vest. I picked up this one from Forever 21 and I am pretty happy with the quality and the fit especially considering the price. My husband and I are spending a couple of days at Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire right after Christmas so I am planning on packing this entire outfit including the fur vest. My husband will probably make fun of me but I will be warm and cozy!

Thank you so much for reading our blog! I hope you found some good ideas for your Christmas outfit!
