Casual Holiday Style Inspiration
This is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the Holidays...the smells, the decorations, an excuse to wear sequins and bling all day/everyday and of course, the celebration of Jesus Christ. In honor of my favorite month I decided to share some practical Holiday looks with you all, as not everyone will be attending a fancy holiday party and/or dinner. If your family is anything like mine, we dress festive but casual for our holiday gatherings. We're not wearing sequined ball gowns and flowy sequin maxi's to Christmas dinner.
One of the key things for me for Christmas family dinner is comfort. Let's be honest food and good eats are a major part of the Holiday season and I may or may not be the type to over indulge in all of the good food. So, considering this something loose and comfortable is a priority. The top I am wearing is pretty roomy in the stomach area, allowing a little wiggle room for me to eat as much as I like and still hide my food belly and these particular leather pants I am wearing are pretty stretchy, so they work perfectly, as well.
I personally try not to over do it with the festiveness, for my families casual dinner. So, finding that perfect balance without being too over the top and stuffy is key. You don't want to look out of place. A beaded or sequin jacket paired with a pair of stretchy jeans would be a perfect style option.
If sequins and beading isn't really your thing, you can forego all of the typical holiday attire and just add a glamorous blingy statement piece of jewelry or rock an all black look with pops of red.
Lesson #1. No One Owes You a Thing
"Entitlement is a delusion built on self-centerdness and laziness." You get what you put in.
Good Day Loves!
Hoping you are all having a fantastic week! Today's look features this red ruffle maxi skirt that I am completely googly-eyed over.
Hoping you all had an Amazing weekend. Mine was a very lazy one, which is sometimes needed to recharge.

Through much reflection, I can sum 2015 up with one word, GRATEFUL! God continues to show off and show up in my life and 2015 was an AMAZING year for me.
If you follow my blog regularly then you know I am all about looking fabulous without breaking the bank. Affordable and stylish looks are easy to create if you think outside of the box a little.
So, for those who truly know me or have been around me a few times in a relaxed setting, you know the phrase, "Girl, Bye" has been a part of my vocabulary for years.
Hoping you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and a great weekend! My Thanksgiving was pretty good, a lot of family time which is always a blessing.
So, this Winter has had me down and out. Woo Wee...I understand that it's Winter and it's supposed to be cold, however, snow almost every week is not what I bargained for! So, I attended an old high school buddies wedding this weekend and in lieu of Valentine's Day and just the mere fact that I am over the cold....
Happy New Year Loves!!!
Hoping everyone had a fantastic and safe holiday! I'm not really one for making New Year's resolutions but I am definitely making a conscious effort to strive towards becoming a better me!
