CASUAL CHRISTMAS LOOKS THAT ARE FESTIVE AND FUN

I know a lot of us are not going to celebrating Christmas in a big and grand style. More than likely, there will not be any large gatherings, office parties, or splashy events to attend. Many of us will celebrate Christmas across the table from close family members or via ZOOM, and the need for dressy Holiday fashions will be over-kill. So, today, I am bringing you TWO casual Christmas looks that you will be able to wear all winter long.

Christmas colors are traditionally red and green, and I also include white since it represents snow. Christmas trees, Santa Claus, Snowmen, and Reindeer, are typical characters that you will see on tee shirts, and since Christmas is celebrating the birth of Jesus, you will also find manger scenes. When I look for outfits to wear for Christmas, I try to pick items that I can wear all winter long, so I nix Santa Claus and Rudolph and will instead go with snowmen or deers without the red nose.

This outfit is a perfect example of looking Christmasy but also being appropriate for the rest of winter. This gorgeous plaid vest is festive, but it is also perfect to wear at any time during the winter months. This plaid puffer vest is from Talbots, but I just saw that they sold out of this color, but they do have an indigo blue plaid one that is just as cute and festive. I’ll link to that one below also.

You might recognize this white button-down shirt from yesterday’s post. This oversized shirt is fabulous for an easy-going style, and it is going to be so versatile all year round.

You can see that the shirt is PLENTY long to cover your rear, which is a good thing in my book. I am wearing a medium in this shirt, and it is still plenty roomy and oversized.

The ankle jeans that I have on are from Banana Republic, and they are so flattering! I am wearing the color Dark Indigo, and I think the dark-colored jeans look dressier and more polished than the faded variety. I still love the lighter colored jeans, but I don’t think they look as dressy. These are a mid-rise jean, and they run true to size. I am wearing my usual size 30 in the jeans, and they fit me perfectly.

This is another example of being festive without having a Christmas tree on your shirt. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas items that are very Christmasy, but I like getting more wears for my money also. If something has Christmas items on it, then I only get to wear it one month out of the year. If it is wintery, I get to wear it as long as it is cold outside, which is much longer than one month. Lol!

Who doesn’t like penguins? They are so cute in their little tuxedo suits!!! This soft red penguin crewneck sweater is adorable, and you will love wearing it this winter. Be prepared for comments because people will think the sweater is too cute! The sweater had just a touch of cashmere, making it very soft to the touch. I am wearing a medium in the sweater, and it fits me great.

You might recognize these jeans from the post with the green sweater and plaid scarf. That was another example of a festive style outfit that can be worn all winter long. These are AG Jeans, and I will warn you to sit down before looking at the price. I will say that these are extremely flattering and comfortable jeans, and if you like them, click on the red heart to make sure that you get an alert when they go on sale. I love buying nice clothing, handbags, jewelry, etc., but I love it when it is at a discounted price.

The cute tartan loafers are perfect for the holidays. I can’t make up my mind about these shoes though, should I keep them or send them back? I keep trying to decide if I will wear them enough to justify my purchase. Although they are on sale for 60% off, so the price is great. These run true to size, and I am wearing my usuals size 9. What do you think; keep or send back???

I forgot to mention the ankle boots that I am wearing with this outfit. I have had an old pair very similar to those I’ve worn for years, but they were getting dingy and needed replacing. I was thrilled to find these boots, and I love the pointy toe and the chunky heel. I have several shoes in this color; it is my favorite neutral color when it comes to shoes. I am wearing my usual size 9, and I think they fit true to size.

    I’ve learned with menopause that a down vest keeps me more comfortable than a sweater in my house.

    I have been going back and forth on whether to order that penguin sweater. I think you made up my mind for me.I love these jeans. This is a little off the subject, but I am looking for a red PVC trench type coat with reptile texture. I saw one on a tv show and can’t figure out where to find one similar. Do you have any idea where I could look? Thanks!

    Shoes are nice, but I think a bright red pair of sneaks would be even cuter. I vote for send them back.

    If it were me, I would return the plaid shoes. Although I love plaid, they are too busy and I would require a neutral shoe.

    I still wear a red plaid puffy vest from Talbots I purchased about 5 years ago. This year I bought the black & white buffalo check one. In this SoCal climate vests are about all I need for warmth. Keep the plaid shoes; they’re a great price. Talbots has a pair with silvery snowflakes that are very tempting!
