how to dress stylishly during the holidays? that’s our theme for this week. each day, we’re focusing on a different holiday. specifically, i’m giving you fashion ideas as well as decorating tips and tricks.
yesterday, i modeled my first true winter outfit. it was all about cashmere, cashmere, and more cashmere. it’s the perfect fabric to get the winter started off right. i started with a beautiful cashmere sweater and cashmere sweater-blazer and paired them both with a pair of cropped wide-leg pants.
as promised, i’m taking the same pair of wide-leg pants and styling it a different way: with a mockneck sweater, tailored coat, and razzle-dazzle holiday glitter pumps. i need a little midweek pick-me-up and figured maybe you do to. so join me today as we jump straight into Christmas. i know you’re going to love it.
another way to wear wide-legged pants
yesterday on the blog, i showed you how to wear cropped, wide-legged pants with flats. today, i’m taking the same pair of wide-leg pants and pairing them with a pair of glitter pumps. as you can see, these pants are very versatile and will work for you in both casual and formal settings.
if it’s particularly cold where you are, but you’re still looking to invest in a wide-legged pant, head over to this post for an example. there i show you how to style a full-length pair of wide-leg pants from Nordstrom.
home for the holidays
do you have your Thanksgiving menu set? are you already thinking about Christmas cookies? have you even thought about a New Year’s platter for college bowl season? i hope not: too much too soon. but i’ve got you covered. all this week, we’re featuring holiday tablescapes and decorating ideas over here on the blog.
every week on fridays with oscar, we try to give you tablescape ideas. we decided to blow that out this week by giving you one everyday corresponding to a different holiday. yesterday was Thanksgiving. today is Christmas. so make sure to scroll down to see our ideas!
ugly christmas sweaters? not this year.
are you going to an ugly sweater party this year? i have to admit they’re pretty find. and if nothing more, they remind us ’tis the season for… sweaters.
today, i’ve got a decisively not ugly mockneck sweater from J.Crew. as i mentioned yesterday, i’m all about J.Crew this winter season. i’m really enjoying their lineup, and they’ve got a fantastic 50% off sale going on right. let me know if you find anything that you’d like to see over on the blog in the comment section below.
christmas kitchen tablescape
like yesterday, we’re breaking out our tablescapes into two. we’re starting with a less formal kitchen one. i’m really loving the minimalist plaid runner paired with my trademark color pop: red plaid and green Christmas wreaths. how are you decorating this holiday season? let me know in the comments below.
christmas dining tablescape
if you’re hosting a larger crowd this year and have to move to a larger table, then this tablescape is for you. i’ve pulled out my traditional Spode Christmas tree dinnerware set. i’ve been collecting it for years, and i bring it out every year without fail. do you have any holiday decorating traditions? have you been collecting something for years—a Christmas village, dinnerware, ornaments? i’d love to hear any and lll family traditions you may have.
