10 outfits to repeat from holidays past

‘Tis the season for all of the holiday cheer in every form, but especially when it comes to outfits! I love pulling out my red sweaters, festive plaid, sparkly accessories, and all of the cozy layers at this time of year. I feel like December is the only month of the year where you can really go all out with the themed outfits. To inspire me (and you!) this season, I rounded up 10 of my favorite holiday looks from the past couple of years: everything from the cozy to the fancy to the outfits I wore to work. (As always, clicking on one of the photos below will take you to the original post.) Cheers! :)

Link Love, vol. 10

It’s been a minute since my previous link love post, which was shared way back in April! How is your holiday season going so far? Mine hasn’t been as relaxing as I wish it was. I’m trying not to overexert myself with too many activities, and I’ve been prioritizing time spent at home, but my house is so messy that it feels overwhelming. I really wish I had a week off of work (without taking paid leave) to clean and organize it. Sigh. I signed up for Apartment Therapy’s January Cure so I can really tackle the messiness come the new year. It’s amazing how out of control things can get—and there’s only two of us living here, ha!

If you look really closely, you can see the dusting of snow we got the morning these photos were taken. It’s funny to look back on these because the very next day, it snowed about 4-5 inches at our house! Even though this dusting was technically the first snow of the season, it wasn’t nearly as memorable as the snow dump we got the next day…haha! I guess it’s time to say goodbye to fall now. :(

By the time the real storm arrived, I was so happy at my past self, because I woke up early on the weekend and got my tires swapped on my car (winter tires make me feel so much better about driving in snow). I got it done just in time! Korri and I ran a bunch of errands while my tires were being done; we got new LED lights for the Christmas tree (which we will get this weekend, since the snow kind of kept us from getting it) and we shot outfit photos with downtown as the backdrop. It felt so cold with a fresh layer of icy slush on everything! I definitely needed a coat; a cozy flannel shirt and vest were not enough to keep warm.

P.S. Did you notice that I left my hair tie on my wrist (without me mentioning it)? I’m too much of a perfectionist when it comes to outfit photos, so I about lost my mind when I realized I left my hair tie on for the whole shoot. I’m curious to know if you would have noticed or if it’s just a thing only I can see because I’m so nit-picky!
