Holiday Outfit Inspiration

Holiday Outfit Inspiration

Happy Friday, guys! Maryal here coming at you solo today to talk about one of my favorite things... THE HOLIDAYS! The time between Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day is my absolute favorite time of year. The holidays are always such a special, loved-up time of the year because it gives us so many reasons to spend quality time celebrating with the family and friends we hold dear. I also absolutely love giving gifts, and this time of year gives me plenty of excuses to give really personal, fun gifts to the people that have shown me so much kindness and support throughout the year, and I love reminding them just how grateful I am to have them in my life by giving a gift that made me think of them.

But there's another reason I simply adore this time of year - holiday style! This season always ushers in droves of outfit inspiration, from party skirts to fun flannel PJ sets, which is perfect for all of the celebrating and champagne sipping you'll be doing during the month-long holiday festivities. And since it's one of my favorite times of year to get dressed up, swipe on a red lip and head out with friends in style or cozy up with family around the fire, I thought I'd round up some of my favorite holiday style sightings from around the web in case you're in need of a little outfit inspiration as you get ready ready for the merriment. And bonus - so many of these things would also make great gifts for the ladies in your life. Hint Hint, Chris Carter! Bonus Bonus - most of the items in this roundup are on sale today... score!

Stay tuned for another holiday style guide next week when we turn our efforts to the guys in our lives. Chris would never admit it, but I'm pretty sure he loves dressing up for all of those holiday festivities just as much as I do. I'm also currently pinning so many more holiday-inspired style picks on my "Love + She Wants" board on Pinterest, so hang out with me over there if you're looking for even more inspiration. Cheers!
