Project Design: Holiday Fashion
Some stylish ladies are joining us (all the links are at the end of the post). My holiday wardrobe is pretty casual, for work, Christmas shopping, family dinners and the occasional festive party. If you are new here, I dress how I decorate: classically with some fresher elements. I don’t mind looking my age but I don’t want to feel old lady/dowdy. Know what I mean? Here are some Classic Casual Holiday Outfits!
If you use my links for your convenience, I may recieve a small commission. Thanks! I’m not very tall and wish I was 5 or 10 lbs. lighter… so I look for clothes with a good fit and proportion. Many of these items come in petite, regular and tall.
Leather Jacket I’ve had mine for years and it just keeps getting better. • The Gap Black Tee I like how these are thicker (on sale). • Longchamp Tote (great for shopping and you can stuff your jacket in it if it gets warm). It’s another bag that I’ve had for years and this is my second one.. • Banana Republic Skinny Jeans • Birdies Loafers (like walking on air). I like them so much–I want the black velvet, too.
Outfit For At Home With Family or Sightseeing
Here I am in Lisbon, but I would wear this to play cards or Scrabble at home…with my son, Tommy (he always says yes when I can’t get anyone else to play with me 🙂
One thing that I have been noticing is that jeans and pants look stylish with a bit of ankle showing with sneakers or booties.
Out To Dinner
This was on the way to dinner in Paris. Ahhh…I’m still sort of in a dreamy fog about the trip.
Cashmere Cardigan With Jewel Buttons (I have a similar one). • Gucci Crossbody Purse (I love crossbody bags–they were in all the windows in Paris–lots with chain straps). • Wide Legged Jumpsuit (I like that it has pockets). • Pearl Cuff Bracelet • Booties
This is dressier but comfortable. I would probably push the sleeves up and wear lots of bracelets. Turtleneck (I have this—its warm and washable). • Velvet Midi Skirt • Block Heeled Pumps (I have these–they can dress up jeans a bit, too).
And those are my Classic Casual Holiday Outfits!
Check out what these ladies recommend…going to be GOOD!
