Start the Week Stylish link up-co-host & Christmas look with Pink Blush

December 21, 2015

red guest host


Today I am excited to be co-host of “Start The Week Stylish” link up with Michelle and Ana as we present to you our red & green Christmas outfits.


Christmas for us normally includes three different locations, three Christmas get together with family members. Each one is pretty low key and relaxed so dressing up formally isn’t necessary, however that doesn’t mean looking frumpy, but does mean adding some holiday cheer and looking a little more put together.


Shop Pink Blush Boutique a women’s online boutique sent me the festive shirt you see me wearing. Pink Blush is a trendy boutique online that offers loads of cute dresses for women, accessories and even shoes so it was hard to pick out items.  This particular tee from Shop Pink Blush(similar as mine is sold out) has plaid on the sleeves with hints of yellow and green and all down the back with plain white for the front, perfect for dressing up with a cute statement necklace (like I did) or scarf.  If this tee had been a bit longer in the front and back it would have made for the perfect bed time gown that’s how comfortable it is.


I added some  red holiday socks to compliment the red in the shirt.  You can’t really tell (sadly) but the socks have reindeer and snowflakes on them and are only $1 at Target.

I added my favorite ankle booties along with leggings for a comfortable relaxed look.  In this outfit I can’t wait to kick back Christmas day and open presents, drink coffee and spend time with my loved ones.

How do you dress for Christmas or Holiday get togethers?

Check out how Michelle and Ana wear their Christmas reds and greens below and link up your Christmasy looks.

    How cute is your new tunic. Perfect for this time of the year and I noticed the peek of socks right away and thought that was a nice little detail. I am glad you are co-hosting my Favorite Monday Linkup, today. Anna Luiza and Michelle look stunning too. Love their red pumps. I am wearing red pumps today, myself. 😉

    Looking forward to tomorrow! <3 Ada.
