December didn’t kick off exactly as I had hoped–on my second day back at work after Thanksgiving, a bad illness sent me home, and I spent the next three days in bed with a fever. No fun! I’m happy to report that I’m feeling much better, and am now trying to get caught up on the festivities that I love about this time of year. I’m putting the finishing touches on my fall capsule wardrobe recap and hope to share it with y’all on Thursday, but in the meantime, I thought I’d round up a few outfit ideas for one of the (literally) sweetest holiday traditions: a cookie exchange! I love the way cookie exchanges are often on the casual side, but they’re still super festive. My outfit recipe (pun intended :)) for a cookie exchange? Cozy layers, sparkly accessories, and, of course, a bright red lip–my go-to shade is this one.

What are your favorite holiday party themes? I’m also a big fan of Christmas cocktail parties and anything with a hot chocolate bar :)
