Dressed Up: Christmas Shopping


Christmas is only ten days away!! With all of the events and to-dos packed into the next week and a half, I’ve decided to share five festive outfits leading up to Christmas that will get you through every occasion on your calendar. Putting together this many style posts has been a little outside of my comfort zone, but it has been so much fun and I hope you like them! First up, a cozy outfit for Christmas shopping–I always try to wear a warm sweater so I can leave my coat in the car (thankfully, an option in NC!), rather than carry it around the mall. Wearing my hair up keeps it off my face while browsing through shelves, and my riding boots (which are only $52 right now!) help my feet last for a whole day of walking around and checking people off my list.

    I knew why I was looking forward to these style posts. You look gorgeous and it’s definitely a great outfit for holiday shopping or also grabbing coffee with friends while everyone is home for Christmas.
