The Ultimate Holiday Hostess Outfit
We had the most relaxing weekend and it made for a very un-Monday Monday to start the week (aka I was in a great mood when my alarm went off at 7AM).
I decided that September and October are for fall decor and November and December are for holiday decor—so I happily set up our first Christmas tree on Friday night. Growing up, my family always had green Frasier firs, but I ordered this flocked tree on a whim, and I like it! So cozy. We tied up some loose ends on our wedding website, sent our save the dates (!!!) and went to a friend’s house for dinner before a hockey game at Chris’s alma mater. We were in bed by 10PM Friday and Saturday night, which is the best feeling on a weekend! I even had time to make the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies I bought ingredients for a month or two ago.
I also got the urge to plan a holiday party, so I sent out paperless post invites to a small group yesterday! I’m thinking apps, some kind of festive cocktail, charades and a gift exchange.
And I already found the perfect hostess outfit.
The combination of a casual turtleneck and tulle ball skirt is effortless and special at the same time—just enough fancy for a holiday party without feeling over the top. The white is so pretty—like a snow queen—but go with black if you want to fly a little more under the radar.
