3 Cozy Holiday Looks

3 Cozy Holiday Looks


Which means if you haven’t already because you’re a super procrastinator like me, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear for your holiday get-togethers!

I know Christmas is just around the corner, but don’t worry! I’m here to help by serving you up some simple style inspiration.

I am beyond excited to announce that I’ve partnered up with a local business for this post! I got to work with the lovely, Kali Lee. Her shop, Lillylee, is home to the handmade earrings you see paired with the holiday outfits I’ve put together.

Her earrings are incredibly unique with their lightweight leather and versatile patterns. They pair well with almost anything, are comfortable and chic, and would be the perfect gift to finish off any last minute holiday shopping for your favorite fashionable lady, or would make the perfect gift to treat yourself! 

When we spoke, she told got a few new earrings ideas in the works as well, so be sure to keep tabs on her Etsy page! You can find the link to here Etsy shop here, and if you find something you like you can use my discount code “KATIE20.”

I’ve put together 3 different cozy holiday looks for you today. They are comfortable, casual, and festive looks that would be perfect for more intimate gatherings with your closest friends and family. Let’s begin!

Outfit 01 – Cookies for Santa

This first look is all about being comfy and casual. This look is supposed to be something you’re not afraid to get messy in, but also can be super festive, so I decided to keep it simple with a red Christmas tee tied at the bottom to add a little flair, my comfiest blue jeans, and these black and white gingham earrings from Lillylee.

I had so much fun shooting this look while I was baking with my friend. She took these pics for me and I am so excited with how they turned out.

Earrings (Currently out of stock, but I’ll keep you updated!) + Top (Similar) + Jeans

Outfit 02 – Cozy Christmas In!

This is the perfect look for just spending a cozy Christmas night in with your family, sitting by the fire, watching your favorite holiday movies with a cup of hot cocoa in your hand.

All this look needs is your favorite Christmas sweater, a messy bun, some super fun earrings, like these gingham ones for Lillylee, comfy jeans that can be easily swapped out for PJ bottoms later) and last but not least, Christmas slippers (Of course!).

Earrings (Currently out of stock, but I’ll keep you updated!) + Sweatshirt + Jeans + Slippers

Outfit 03 – Sugarplum Blush

If you’re not a red and green kind of gal, no worries! I’ve got you covered. This look is the perfect slightly dressier than the other but still comfy as all get out.

I decided to go with a plain white baseball tee with gray sleeves, a pair a light blue jeans, and my favorite black ankle boots.

I went with a braided ponytail to dress up the look and to show off my Silver & Gold Lillylee earrings.

To add a little bit of a whimsical holiday touch to this look, I decided to throw on my pink teddy coat to finish off the look.

Earrings + Necklace + Coat + Top + Jeans + Boots (Similar)

I’d love to hear from you in the comments below telling me which look was your favorite and what you favorite way to celebrate the holidays is!

I hope you have a very merry Christmas and a happy holiday season with your loved ones and that you feel comfortable and stylish in whatever you decide to wear to celebrate!

Happy December!

It’s officially Christmas crunch time! Time to run around with arms flailing, Christmas sweaters on, your cart filled to the brim at Target with all the Christmas decor you never knew you needed, and of course a nice buzz from all the peppermint hot cocoa you’ve been chugging nonstop since the day after Thanksgiving!

This means it’s finally socially acceptable to bust out your favorite Christmas records to blast them from your car, or home, or wherever you feel like jamming because it’s officially the holiday season!

I’ve put together a list of my favorite Christmas songs, which believe me, was a huge undertaking because there’s a lot of good Christmas songs out there.

But without further delay, I present to you, my December/Christmas playlist!

Holiday Gift Guide 2018

Holiday Gift Guide 2018

Happy Holidays!

The holiday season is fast approaching, so what better way to get ready than to start making your lists and checking them twice?

I have been wanting to put out my own holiday gift guide ever since I started this blog, and so I decided that this year is the year!

I have put together six gift ideas for four types of people. Other than Boss Babe, which is specifically geared toward the independent ladies in your life, these gifts can work for anyone!

Under each gift guide, I have linked a few specific items that work from my lists, however, there are so many other options out there that would work as well that can be found with a simple Google or Amazon* search!

*If you’re doing your holiday shopping on Amazon this year . . .

There’s a lovely way that you can give back while shopping on Amazon and it is a little-known thing called AmazonSmile.

AmazonSmile is exactly like Amazon, however, most purchases you make can apply a small donation to a charity of your choice. It’s no extra charge to you, and all you have to do is shop at smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com.

I have been using it for well over a year and my purchases have been supporting Answers for Autism. I don’t use Amazon all the time, but every little bit helps! Especially this time of year, so please check it out!

Without further ado, my holiday gift guide!
