A Holiday Lookbook

With just three days until Christmas, most of us are running around, doing the final preps for the holidays. My family is from Argentina so we celebrate on the 24th of December. We start with appetizers and charcuterie early on in evening and move into our late dinner around 10ish. We ring in Christmas (much like we all do NYE) at midnight. It's not until after midnight, after we have all hugged and wished each other a merry Christmas, that we begin opening gifts. It's a long night but there's nothing quite like hanging on to traditions from back home. The following day, we wake up (slow) and have a huge family brunch. From there, the eating continues on and on for the rest of the day.

With all of the running around with gifts and decorations, most of us are probably still wondering what we'll be wearing during the holiday festivities. It's easy to fall back on black dresses during the holidays because they are such a classic staple but I wanted a softer look this year. Because I've always wanted to wear a tulle skirt, I thought that maybe Christmas was the time! I wouldn't usually wear tulle but if you can't be a little extra with your looks during the holidays, when can you be?! I'm pretty minimal and casual when it comes to fashion and beauty so I thought this look gave me the balance I was looking for.

Faux Fur Wool Coat: H&M | Skirt and Sweater: Marshall's | Shoes: Nine West 

This soft tulle skirt falls just below the knee and would look stunning with strappy sandals. I chose this beautiful black wool coat with a faux fur collar to dial up the glam a bit. I paired the tulle skirt with a thin, black fine wool turtleneck. I fell for the scalloped detailing; it's on both the cuffs and the neck. Because it's a thin sweater, it easily tucks into skirts and pants without it bunching. This turtleneck has been one of my favourite purchases of the season!

Do you have your holiday looks ready?

No matter how you celebrate the holidays, take the time to be present and enjoy each moment with your loved ones! Merry Christmas!!
