christmas outfit inspo

December 08, 2018

christmas is just around the corner and i don't know about you guys but i can always use a little outfit inspiration when it comes to celebrating the holidays.  i'm really into buffalo plaid this year and think it works perfectly for christmas.  i'm planning on wearing this outfit christmas day where we do our annual secret santa exchange with my family.

my sister came up with the idea of secret santa for family gifts several years ago and it was the best idea ever.  the spend limit is $100.  i collect everyone's wishlist, type it up and provide it to everyone around thanksgiving.  this year we had a website generate the names for us but in the years past, we just picked names out of a hat on thanksgiving.  the idea was that we are each only spending $100 for christmas gifts but actually getting something that we really want (instead of getting a bunch of small gifts that we may never really use or worse, making everyone go broke for the holidays.  ain't nobody got time for that ;)

this year my sister and brother in law are hosting christmas breakfast at their house and i wanted something cute and comfy to wear.  i'll probably switch it up and wear thick black tights and flat booties but i loved how this dress looked with these fun tights and heels.

what are you planning on wearing for christmas day?  do you have any special traditions you do with your family?

  5. I love the Secret Santa idea. A lot of my friends with bigger families do this every year, and I've always been a bit jealous. My family is so small that it seemed silly for us. But it's been expanding with marriages and children over the past few years, so maybe in the future that'll be what we do too! Loving this cute ensemble you put together. The tights really make the outfit pop!

  6. Oh so adorable! Love how the tights have some interesting detail too! I'm a big fan of buffalo plaid as well.
