How I Style It Link up: Christmas Chic

December 2, 2015

Whew what a week so far! Between car issues, rainy days with kids going crazy inside and then little Christmas shopping done let’s just say there is a bit of stress going on. However I have to count my blessings and am thankful for a home, family, food and so much more. God will provide the right car diagnosis, extra money for that and the sun in no time.


Today is another “How I Style It” link up where a few bloggers and I come together to show you how we each styled for Christmas wear or rather “Christmas Chic.” We were sad to loose a few blogger hosts from our past link ups but can’t wait to see how they style their looks regardless.

My outfit today was actually photographed by one of my sisters on Thanksgiving day and just wearing this look put me in the mood and spirit for Christmas coming.


I will be honest and say it was hard to find the right shoes and leg covering for this look since it was chilly out, but comfy black fleece lined leggings and booties worked, however I think this look would have looked great with tights, or even jean jeggings.


It felt nice to pull out my faux fur vest and red dress again. I can’t wait to style these items to church and Christmas plays coming up.

What will you be wearing for Christmas?

Outfit details: Red dress: Old Navy (similar here)//Vest: Target (same here)//Leggings: Target c/o Brandzaffair (similar here)//Booties: Target c/o Brandzaffair (same here)

I would love to see what you have done to style in the link up below:
