H&M: Christmas Outfits

Happy Tuesday! :)

Christmas is only a couple of days away, and I'm sure everyone has holiday parties to attend here and there.
And of course, part of the fun of holiday parties are the outfits we're gonna wear, right?!

We've covered our gift list and our menu -- it's now time to talk about what we're gonna wear. ;)

I was on www.hm.com and I made four different outfits to show you guys what I would love to wear for the various Christmas celebrations I will be attending this holiday season:

1. I will be meeting up with my closest friends (the ones I mentioned on my Christmas gift list!) for a night of board games, catching up, food, margaritas, baked goodies, gifts, DVDs, and all that good stuff.

It's our little Christmas tradition and I am so so so excited!

It's gonna be a relaxed kind of thing -- just us spending some much needed quality bonding time together and catching up with each other's lives -- so for that, a simple outfit like the one above is more than perfect!

I love pairing oversized knit sweaters with super skinny pants or leggings. Ballet flats are the perfect shoes for this outfit. Simple stud earrings, a long necklace, and a bun complete the look.

2. We are also gonna have a mini-high school reunion. 
My friends and I are gonna go to dinner with a bunch of our high school classmates -- it's been three years since we last did that, so yup, it's gonna be interesting.

As for the outfit, I'm thinking something like this.
Sleek, black leather pants paired with a white tank top and a pretty purple cardigan.
I'm gonna finish the ensemble with black pumps, chandelier earrings, and a high ponytail.

3. Every year, my family and I go to church on Christmas Eve.
After church, we go home, we eat, and we open our gifts.

For Christmas Mass, my sisters and I wear dresses -- it's a bit of a tradition. ;)

I think this tube dress is perfect -- it's both dressy and simple, and the length is just right for church. 
I would use a leather jacket to make the look a little edgy, while the chandelier earrings, high-heeled sandals, and wavy hair keep it girly.

4. Christmas celebrations continue on until the next morning.
Our cousins and other relatives come over the next day for Christmas lunch (and more gifts!).

For Christmas Day, we usually go for a more casual ensemble.

This white sweater dress is absolutely perfect!
 I would wear it with tights -- gotta keep my legs warm (although, I think we're gonna have a warm Christmas this year!). Add ankle booties, stud earrings, and a side braid to top off this fun and casual Christmas look.

I am excited that it's time to celebrate Christmas again!

How are you celebrating the holidays?
