Christmas Sunday



And some other pictures from my day:

I wore this Christmas inspired clothes yesterday at church. We had our annual Christmas Party. I had gotten this dress a few weeks ago and was hoping to wear it....the problem was it has short sleeved and I didn't have anything to wear on it. My grandma then gave me this fun red  sweater.....and it just was perfect.

I spray painted some black shoes gold and added gold accents everywhere in my outfit.


Red and gold....just can't get away from that. ☺

Vintage Christmas



I wore this outfit last Sunday. Again, a nice tartan skirt....prefect for Christmas

I am sorry for the bad picture quality. I am still getting to know my new camera (early Christmas gift) and the colors in the tartan skirt did not come out really nice....not just the colors..... Anyway, the colors are actually very bright.....green, blue, red and white. 

I paired it with a white shirt I redid tying in the red color in the skirt with my red cami & belt. I chose simple pearl and gold jewelery to accent my outfit.

What kind of style will you be wearing on Christmas.....normal, modern or vintage?

Christmas Jewelry



I don't own any Christmas jewelry except one set of snowmen earrings....and one of those are broken. But I really do love Christmas: the decorations, the colors and the festive jewelry! So I went on etsy and sent scouting for some pretty Christmas jewelry. I found some fun ones with great pops of color. I found some vintage looking winter necklaces and a few classy looking accessories. 

If you click the picture you can go to the individual shops.

Which ones do you like best?

Pastel Christmas




Natasha Atkerson mentioned liking to wear the "icy" blue in the winter.....and I really liked her idea. Almost any pastel color with white would look wintery! So I tried this all white outfit with my pastel yellow, pearl necklace and snowman charm..... and I think it turned out nicely! ☺

Do you think pastels can be wintery?

Blue Christmas







Blue is another great Christmas color though not my favorite one. My favorite blue Christmas color combinations would be: deep blue, black & silver. Or maybe even dark blue white and silver. But I don't wear black or silver so I tried another combonation.....blue, white and silver.

How do you like it? Do you like blue as a Christmas color?

Christmas Plaid



This is what I wore Sunday for Church...a good Christmas outfit. Plaid is always wintery/Christmasy. 
I wore my plaid skirt with a blue shirt and a brown sweater. Brown is more of a fall color but if you can wear deep blue, bright green, white or black you will look very Christmasy.....☺

Do you like wearing plaid around the Christmas time?

I love the Christmas Holidays....I love the days before. The excitement, the music, the lights.....the festive spirit. But I also love the Christmas colors. They are so fun & beautiful.

Today's Christmas colors are:

RED, WHITE & GOLD

The denim makes it warm and casual.....great outfit for family fun or...working at my church's booth at the Christmas market. ☺
