'Tis the season for festive dresses, endless mugs of hot cocoa, and Christmas jingles heard all around. This holiday season has been the most magical one yet. My hubby and I went and got our very first fresh Christmas tree, brought it home, and enjoyed decorating it the first weekend of December. This month has been filled with countless nights of baking Christmas cookies (gingerbread ones being my favorite), wrapping the perfect hand chosen gifts for friends and family (my favorite thing to do at night with White Christmas in the background on Netflix on repeat), stuffing stockings with small trinkets to be opened on Christmas morning, and twinkling lights on the Christmas tree lighting up the room in display of the holiday season. The holiday season is something I look forward to year round because it's filled with magic and wonder. 

This year, I'm planning on spending time with both my family and Shawn's side of the family. We'll be doing Christmas dinner at his parent's house and this is what I'll most likely be wearing for the festivities. Now, red is not usually a color I wear, I honestly think this is the only red garment in my wardrobe, but for the holidays, I think red is the perfect hue. This dress has been in my closet for a few seasons now and is from Zara but I actually found a very similar dress (more like exactly the same!) at Nordstrom that is half off right now and would absolutely be perfect for any special occasion coming up this winter or even Valentine's Day. Did you know Target has Valentine's Day stuff out already? They're so ahead of the game! Anyway, to keep me just a little warm and add a little texture to this a-line dress, a faux fur vest is the perfect addition to this look. Lately, fringe and tassels have been very popular so I paired this dress and faux fur vest combo with a pair of taupe fringe heels. I also found and linked the cutest tassel heels in both red and black from TopShop down below that would look great with this ensemble. A bold red lip, dainty gold accessories, and a heart full of cheer complete this holiday look. 

A matching bold red lip and dress is quite fitting for Christmas, don't you think? Are you dressing up for the holidays? And more importantly, are you as excited for the holiday weekend as I am? As always, thank you for taking a moment of your day to stop by. I truly hope you have a weekend filled with magic and create wonderful life lasting memories with your loved ones. Happy holidays!
