Red Velvet Crush: Holiday Outfits for Mommy and Me







Oh La La velvet.  I’ve been searching for a velvet piece to add to my close without much success  until I saw this on my Just Fab monthly boutique.  It took less than two minutes to click and purchase this lush, holiday perfect, bold red, slouchy sweater.  I have learned to size down in their clothing line so I went with an XS.  When it arrived and I rushed to put it on, even though it was freezing from being outside all day in the mailbox.  As I slipped it on , I felt instant relief wash over me because it was PERFECT!  It’s so soft on the outside and the inside is lined so it slips onto the body just right.  I wore it for our first family holiday outing ,to watch the production of Little Women the Musical.  I paired it up with my basic black skinny pants, black booties and my bold H & B necklace, also styled here.  Oh, and I let my hair go all natural with just a good blow drying and hairspray. 












The girls also got all dressed up in their newly purchased holiday dresses but weren’t too keen on taking pictures in the brisk, like -15 C, weather.  I took them shopping last week to the Bay, during their Bay Day’s sale, and Halie picked out a lacy velvet, midnight blue dress and Anya went with a bold red one (sold out but similar here and here).  Recently someone told me that I was going to be broke with two girls but I do love shopping with them.  Hahaha. 

We enjoyed a special lunch at a local crepe café that has GF crepes and then we went to the show.  What a truly magical way to kick off the holiday season.  If you missed my post on Wednesday and do the Elf on the Shelf gig with your little ones make sure you check it out for some ideas and a couple of pintables here.







Wishing you all a fabulous weekend and thanks for swinging by.

  2. I LOVE me some Justfab! What a beautiful top! Do you typically wear an XS there? I know the sizing can be a bit off.

    I also have to say - your daughters are insanely gorgeous! Well done my dear!

    1. Thank you so much. Every mother loves to hear words of praise for her littles, LOL. For the most part they are really sweet and I do feel like they make life just a insanely fun roller-coaster ride.

      As for Justfab sizing, yes to the XS. When I measure it indicates Sm. but I've had to exchange a couple of things at the beginning so now I just go with XS.

    1. Thanks Jodie. The girls don't always want to do the picture thing but this was a special occasion and they were into it, though not into taking photos outside as it's pretty frigid around these parts now. LOL. Thanks for stopping by.
