My Favorite Holiday Fashions & Accessories

November 22, 2021

As we approach Thanksgiving I’m getting very excited for the holidays. What about you? I already have a couple of fun, festive events on the calendar, so I’m thinking of what I’ll be wearing, too. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite holiday fashions and accessories in some of your favorite stores. Many of these items are already on sale!

Holiday Fashions & Accessories

It really doesn’t take much to get party ready. But I do think it requires having at least a few fun, sparkly or colorful pieces in our wardrobe that we can mix into our most basic outfits. Be sure to check out my most recent YouTube video for tips on creating great holiday outfits from your closet.

In that video I included about a dozen different fun and festive outfits. But I’ve got a few more below created from some of the pieces I’m included in my favorites list here.

What to Wear to an Ornament Exchange

I’m getting together with the women in my church fellowship for dinner and an ornament exchange in a few weeks. We’ll be casual, but I want to look a little festive. I think this outfit would work perfectly!

What to Wear to An Ornament Exchange Party

What to Wear to a Christmas Light Show

Friday after Thanksgiving, James and I are going to the Lumaze Christmas Light Festival here in Cincinnati. It’s a “family-friendly indoor Christmas light festival featuring towering light gardens, glowing activities, delicious treats, and live entertainment… All under the twinkle of a million lights.” That looks fun! We plan to get dinner afterwards. I think something casual but festive is in order for that outing, too.

Light Show Outfit Inspiration

What to Wear Out to Dinner with Friends

We also have a big, casual dinner out with friends on our calendar. We’re simply all meeting up at a hamburger joint here in Cincinnati. Again, we’ll be casual, but I’ll want to wear something merry and bright…just for the fun of it!

What to Wear to Dinner with Friends
double breasted coat // bead-burst ankle jeans // turtleneck sweater // lipstick in Dynamic // pave teardrop pendant necklace // pave loop drop earrings // flats // pointed pumps

I have a few more events and outings to attend this holiday season. Maybe I’ll share more outfit inspiration like this again in the near future. Let me know if you like this kind of post.

I have lots more holiday fashions and accessories to share with you below. Click through for pricing because sales have started and they don’t always show up in these widgets.

Here’s one set of my favorites. These are from Talbots, J.Jill and Brighton. I’m especially a sucker for a pretty Christmas pin. So I love this JOY pin and the Cardinal pin. I bought the similar JOY pin last year and it sold out fast.

This next selection is from J.Crew, J.Crew Factory, Ann Taylor, Nordstrom and Macy’s. I may have a few other retailers represented here, too.

Thanks so much for stopping in for a little style inspiration. Have a great day!

Blessed for My Day

Each day we have a choice about where our minds will dwell. Where we set our mind, there go our emotions, too. I know it sometimes feels like our emotions lead us. But indeed we can change our emotions by refocusing our thoughts.

Today let’s choose to dwell on the character of God and the truthfulness of His Word rather than being led down a bad path by thinking on the uncertainty of our circumstances or the lies of this world. And even while our emotions may seem big and real and weighty, they are not always based on fact. So let’s call them out for what they are and replace any faulty thinking with right thinking.

Let the peace of Christ, to which you were indeed called in one body, rule in your hearts; and be thankful. ~ Colossians 3:15

Spread the love
xoxo, Kay

  1. Very cute ideas for the holiday outings and just being in the house with family and friends also.
    I too started decorating early for Christmas this year. My son and family are coming for Thanksgiving tomorrow in fact and stay a few days. So I thought it would be neat to decorate for Christmas a little though I didn’t put the tree up yet. They will spend Christmas in Colorado where they live with the rest of their family.
    Should be a fun time!
    Loved the BFMD. Was cold this morning in Minnesota. 16 degrees Brrrrrrr
    Have a great day!

      In November when it gets dark so early, it helps to put the tree and decorations up as all the twinkling lights make everyone so happy!
