I tend to dress in clear holiday colors when those times roll around because I can get away with it. Since I have three Christmas events to attend this year I decided to branch out. I'm even thinking about wearing pink on Christmas day! As long as there's some sparkle or bows, it's Christmas-y in my book. I will, however, be wearing green for the Christmas Eve party tonight. I won't be wearing red with the green dress (even though that idea lingered in my mind for a few minutes).
I wore this outfit yesterday for a Christmas get-together at my grandparents' house. I thought the rich purple sweater paired with the gold skirt was still pretty festive. I also got to wear my new cape! You might have seen my post about it on Instagram, but it was 50% off and I couldn't resist. It's so pretty! There's a lace bow and sequins. It's wonderful.

It was another bouffant day! I just can't get enough of them. It's really nice having Mom around while I'm on break. She can throw my hair into one of these so much faster than I can and it always looks much better than my attempts. I love it! She's the best.
I just thrifted this cashmere sweater for $10 the other day. There's a great thrift store we visit each time we're up in Illinois and I don't think I've ever walked out empty-handed. I thought it was a great deal for a classic sweater in a very pretty color. Plus it's super soft and warm. I've never owned a 100% cashmere sweater before. Thrifting enables me to wear luxury fabrics without living on the street. Hooray for thrifting!
I hope you're having a nice Christmas Eve if that's what you're into, and a nice Monday if not! I plan on sleeping in, getting dressed in my pretty new eShakti dress, and going to party with Mom's side of the family. It should be fun. I enjoy getting to spend time with my family over the holidays. Family is hands-down the most important part of Christmas-time to me.
