Look 11: Happy-Merry Holidays
One of the benefits of being in a mixed-religion marriage is getting to celebrate both Chanukah and Christmas! The other benefit is not having conflicts on those holidays 😉 Haha! Being that it’s in the midst of Chanukah and Christmas is coming up fast, I figured it’d be fun to share what I’ve worn and will wear for our families’ celebrations. Typically, I can get away with wearing jeans, but this year, I decided to continue my denial that it’s winter dress up a bit more than usual and wear cute skirts with tights. I also snuck a pair of cozy ankle socks over my tights, hidden under my boots (shhh!), for both holidays–gotta keep those tootsies warm!
For Chanukah, I opted to toss on my trusty charcoal blazer, because my parents (who hosted) typically keep the house cool. I kept my accessories minimal because of the patterned shirt and the dynamic of the satin, tiered, pleated skirt. I went with my basic black knee boots because they’re easy and rather comfortable, and threw grey tights on under them to break up the dark a little bit. I added the belt at the waist as an accessory, because it needed something.
For Christmas, I went with a basic black short-sleeve turtleneck tucked into a cute blue plaid skirt, that came with a great belt. Because the skirt’s so bright, I stayed basic on the bottom as well, going with black tights and, again, my black boots. I added simple CZ studs and a cute, long locket to lighten things up a little bit, and because I know my nieces will love the locket, haha!
