Hi dolls! I hope everyone had a very Merry and blessed Christmas weekend! I had the best Christmas with my family & fiancé. Tonight I thought I would do a little "Christmas Outfit Recap" post to share a few snaps of my looks from this past Christmas season!
Normally we celebrate Christmas with my precious Nana on Christmas Eve, but this year I was scheduled to work, so we went to my Nana's house on the Friday before instead! Nana always prepares the most delicious meal and then we open presents. It is always special to spend time with my loved ones every year; I never take it for granted!
Anyway, on to my first #ootd for Christmas dinner with my Nana and family this past Friday! My presh fiancé took the pictures above of my #ootd after we ate lunch! I bought this outfit at H&M this past fall on one of my trips to Nashville for school. I absolutely love lace, mainly because it is so feminine! I thought the maroon color of this top & skirt set would be perfect for Christmas :). I actually had never worn it before I did to Christmas dinner; however, this also would also be a great outfit choice for attending a winter wedding. Another thing I love about this outfit is that it is a top and skirt combination, so that the pieces can be worn separately. I could wear the top with jeans for a more casual look, and then to change it up, I could pair the skirt with a more casual top! Love the versatility of a top & skirt combination.
On Christmas Day, we celebrated with my brother and the rest of my family. It has been a tradition in my family to eat an Italian dinner on Christmas Day ever since I can remember (after we get hungry again after our amazing Christmas breakfast in the morning). My mom's spaghetti is my fave! After dinner, it was present time! My nephews are still in the stage where Christmas is super magical and Santa Claus leaves them the best gifts ever! I love going over to my brother & sister-in-love's house to see what all Santa brought them! After exchanging gifts & seeing my nephews' presents, we also had a blast watching old baby videos this year. My Dad has started to convert some of my old baby videos from VHS onto DVD. My favorite gifts are sentimental ones, so this was absolutely perfect! We laughed and laughed seeing myself and my brothers in our younger years. Not to mention that I have been posing for the camera from an early age; Mom said that it is no wonder I love to blog because I have always been ready to pose in front of the camera! Haha! 😉
So for Christmas Day, I opted for a more casual look. Our Christmas weather this year in Tennessee was a warm 70 degrees, and I'm not going to lie, I honestly enjoyed it! Haha! It was nice to wear a dress and not be freezing without tights or leggings. I bought this reindeer dress last year at a local boutique, Southern Charm. I love the sequins (as y'all already know from my sequin pants post here) & thought it would be perf for Christmas Day! I paired it with my lace-up flats from Old Navy (remember, I have them in 4 colors, lol). I love the way gold & red look together, and it was the perfect color combination for Christmas Day!

And, we just so happened to be standing under the mistletoe at the SAME time, such a coincidence & totally not planned, of course...haha! 😉 Any excuse to kiss my love!
So what did y'all do for Christmas!? Leave me a comment & share! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday spent with the ones you love most!
Thanks so much for reading, dolls!
