Incase you aren't aware of this already, I, Carly Sarah Holstein, am Jewish. So Christmas typically consists of being lazy with the family, who also seem to get this holiday we don't celebrate off, enjoying Chinese food and seeing a movie. Color us stereotypes. But that doesn't mean I don't want to dress the part i.e. having cute pjs to run down the stairs in, festive sweaters, home decor and more.
Thus, below, is what I would potentially wear, if I wasn't currently in crappy pj pants, a comfy high school tee and matching sweatshirt. Oh yah, and my hair, NOT presentable. Picture messy bun, top of head. And my contacts have yet to go in and if my family celebrated the holiday. And, I even left options for shoes, cause you know I'm a shoe lover.
FOREWARNING: There is a lot of J.Crew in this post. But I'm sure no one is surprised there. And family occasions in my family rarely occur for dresses, we're more of a football outside, jumping in the lake, general playing kind of family.
[J.Crew Boy Shirt in Flannel (old, similar) / J.Crew Cable Knit Cashmere Sweater (on sale!) / J.Crew Toothpick in Distressed (my favorite pair!) / J.Crew Crystal Circle Necklace / Tory Burch Reva Flats / Frye Shirley Riding Boots]
[J.Crew Collection Cable Knit Sweater / J.Crew Matchstick Jeans in Classic Rinse / J.Crew Lady Coat (cause nothing is more classic in winter than a white coat) / J.Crew Gold Wedges / TOMS Desert Wedges]
[J.Crew Fair Isle Sweater (previously mentioned here and now on sale, but still too much, unless of course, I can live in it) / Toothpick Pant in Garment Dyed Twill / J.Crew Janey Patent Flats / Jessica Simpson Nude Patent Pump]
Now, I'm off to enjoy family and the greatness that is New England. I'll be back on Thursday. But till then, tel me this, what are you wearing this Christmas?
P.S. You'd think this would have helped me packed for my trip home this week...but it didn't and I've overpacked yet again.
