I am back today with the fifth installment of The Holiday Series, where fifteen fashion bloggers are sharing our Christmas Style. In years past for as far as I can remember I typically chose to dress up for all of our Christmas day gatherings. I always enjoyed making the day even more special by dressing up. The past couple of years I have chosen to save my dressier looks for holiday parties and have dressed more for comfort on Christmas day. As the boys have grown older and spend most of the day with their dad’s family in Georgia, and I typically spend a good bit of the day preparing for everyone to come to our home in the evening, dressing down just makes more sense for the occasion.
My cranberry polka dot vest and plaid scarf offer a cute pattern mix that is equally festive. They are a great way to keep my basic black sweater and dark denim jeans from being anything but boring. My cognac leather riding boots have been a longtime favorite and are a classic for anyone’s winter wardrobe. Overall I love this super cute, casual and cozy mix. It is one of my favorite fashion formulas and one that I mix and match all the time knowing it is always going to work, doesn’t require much thought, and the end result will look completely put together. What is your Christmas style? Do you have a favorite fashion formula?

15 Fashion Bloggers talk about their Christmas Outfits + Traditions!
Kristin: “Our last two years in Germany we have had friends and family come visit us for Christmas. This year my husband and I will be enjoying the holiday by ourselves (along with our pup) so we will make a nice dinner at home and pop some champagne. That’s why I’m keeping it casual with a bell sleeve sweater, jeans, and red heels. Happy Holidays, everyone!”
Linda: “This has been my Christmas Day outfit for the last three years. A skirt I found at Winners ( TJMaxx equiv) over a decade ago but on that is timeless. Sometimes I wear it with a black cashmere sweater or with a white lace sweater. I love the festive yet fun look of Santa and the skateboards.
Merry Christmas from my home to yours ( and from Lou too).”
Lizzie: “I love untraditional holiday looks and think this look would be perfect for Christmas Eve! I adore the velvet and sparkle with the unexpected color combo and print.”
Monica: “Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate! Christmas is such a special time for me because growing up we had a lot of traditions in our household and some of those traditions I’ve taken with me in my own home with my fiance and fur babies. I hope everyone has a great Christmas!”
Chrissy: “Christmas morning starts at home in our pjs, but we’ve been known to drop in on family and friends as the day wears on.”
