Holiday Favorites

 The dynamic duo of Steph and Ellen is back with another collaboration. We’re sharing festive but casual holiday outfits and also talking about our holiday favorites! Scroll below to check out some of mine. Then, visit Steph’s blog to see her’s!

Isn’t this reindeer sweater the most adorable thing ever?
Wearing: J.Crew Factory sweatshirt | J.Crew vest (old, love this and 2 xs exact versions here) | Lululemon pants | J.Crew Factory scarf | L.L.Bean boots (backordered until April) | Ray-Ban aviators

I think this outfit is perfect for all sorts of holiday activities, like finding the Christmas tree or holiday shopping. Plaid is so fun to wear, especially during this time of year. I’ve been finding every excuse to wear this J.Crew Factory scarf (on sale for $29). Oh, and I am guilty of wearing this outfit twice in one week. Oops. Please don’t judge me. 

Holiday Favorites:

  • Movie: Elf. “Buddy the elf, what’s your favorite color?”
  • Starbucks drink: Caramel Brûlée Latte
  • Song: “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole
  • Memory/tradition: Going to my great aunt’s on Christmas Eve, followed by Christmas Eve mass. During “Silent Night,” the church turns off the lights, and it’s so peaceful.
  • Food/recipe: My mom makes a mean beef tenderloin for Christmas dinner. I also love french toast casserole for Christmas brunch. YUM!

What are your holiday favorites?

    This outfit looks so cute and really comfortable – especially that scarf! I love it. (And you're so right, Ellen – caramel brûlée lattes are to die for!)

    Keep up the great work, girl!

    You look so cozy! The holidays are such a fun time, although I'm definitely more of a gingerbread latte gal (er, at least when I had one in Paris!). Merry Christmas!
