On Christmas Eve our family has a couple traditions that we do every year. We always attend a Christmas Eve church service, which is one of our favorite church services of the year. After we get back from church, we eat a simple meal together that doesn’t require too much prep (lately it’s been lasagna-yum), and then we watch A Christmas Story. We love these simple traditions because we get to spend them with our family, which is one of the best things about the holiday season! Here’s our looks from Christmas Eve:
I always look forward to picking out the perfect outfit for Christmas Eve. I wanted this year to tie in Christmas colors so I went with a red portofino shirt from Express. If you haven’t ever gotten a portofino shirt before I definitely recommend them. They are great for so many occasions. Plus right now is a great time to buy them because Express is 50% off everything! I knew I wanted to wear a skirt with this shirt so I decided on my herringbone skirt from J. Crew. Since I was going to church and wanted to be dressier I decided to break out my classic black Dior purse.
I ordered this dress recently from Red Dress Boutique and got it just in time to wear it on Christmas Eve. I really love the dusty plum color of it! I don’t have any clothing items that are this color, and I really like how this color looks with my skin and hair. I decided to wear this J. Crew Factory statement necklace with it, along with booties to make this look dressier. I love that this dress can be dressed up or down, depending on what kind of look your going for!
Stay tuned for our Christmas day outfit of the day post coming up in a few days!
