Holiday Outfit: Christmas Converse, Red Velvet Skater Skirt, and a Striped Sweater

Happy Christmas Eve! I can't believe it's already the 24th. To keep with the festive nature of this day here is a very holiday appropriate outfit. I wore this for our family Christmas card pictures. I'd been trying to find an excuse to wear my Santa-like red velvet skirt with my Christmas Converse so Christmas picture day turned out to be the perfect occasion. This skirt is mostly appropriate for holiday times due to the strange nature of its velvet material. Instead of a fine fuzziness it leans toward strange red faux fur. It's perfect for this time of year because it seems like something Santa's suit would be made out of.

What do you think about my Christmas Converse? I've had them since high school. Some years I forget to dig them out of my closet so they look mostly unworn after all these years. There are only so many days I can wear Christmas Converse! These are definitely a pair of shoes that will remain in my closet for many years to come because they're so unique and ridiculous. Maybe one day a child of mine will want to wear them! They'll still be sitting in their box waiting for December to roll around.

skirt: romwe | striped sweater: forever 21 | tights: walmart | shoes: converse 

I hope you're having a wonderful holiday if you celebrate and a fantastic Wednesday either way. I'll be spending time with my extended family eating various soups and tamales. I'm particularly excited about the white elephant gag gifts we'll be opening too. They're probably my favorite part of Christmas besides being with my family! 

Anyway, be safe and happy holdiays!

Those shoes are the best for Christmas. I love stripes and it is always a good combination with the velvet skirt. I adore my red velvet skirt, they are the best.
