It's Christmas Eve already! How did that happen so quickly? Honestly, this year I just never really had the time to get into the Christmas spirit and I was literally still shopping/wrapping presents yesterday. The last couple of days, since being on holidays, I have gotten into the holiday spirit more by spending time with the kids, being outdoors, touring the city Christmas light displays, playing Christmas music and enjoying friends and family.
A couple of days ago I put this little outfit together for a casual day of running errands and ice skating, and I loved it so much that I've decided to repeat it tomorrow for my casual Christmas outfit. I love the bright red color of this cable knit sweater and how the statement necklace dresses it up just the right amount. I also styled my hair in a side messy bun which requires no hair brushing/straightening/curling, bonus for Christmas morning. My brown fringe booties were a favorite of mine last year but haven't been utilized hardly at all this fall/winter :( Since it was a super nice day around here, like 0C, I pulled out my puffer vest and skated around in that. All in all, I just love how this look came together.
I will be hosting my family over for gift opening, everyone wants to
see the kids, and a brunch. My mom will do a small supper in the
evening for us, and our big Christmas dinner will be hosted by my aunt
on Boxing Day (I have a couple outfits in mind but will probably repeat
this one). Our group will be small this year, my parents, my two grandma's, a family friend, and our family. I will be making Croissant Make Ahead Sandwiches, hash browns with mushrooms, red peppers and sausages, turkey breakfast sausages and a fruit platter.
