HAPPY HOLIDAYS | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

HAPPY HOLIDAYS | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Regardless of your religion or what holiday you celebrate, this time of year fashion is fun and colorful.  I am lucky enough to be able to celebrate two holidays: Hanukkah and Christmas.  

Yesterday, on Christmas Eve, my family enjoyed a nice dinner at The Cheesecake Factory, and later on went to church.  I decided that I wanted to dress festive but comfortable.

I paired my favorite, must-have skirt-leggings from M.Rena with a red lace and tulle dress. Since the dress was sleeveless --and though it was not as chilly outside as some previous Christmases have been-- I decided that a coat was still necessary.  I paired my outfit with my fuzzy white coat and added a white pearl statement necklace to finish off the look.

My makeup followed my "Holiday Glow" makeup routine, and I added my favorite lipstick from Kat Von D ('Cathedral') to finish off the look.
