Who doesn’t love the holidays? Who doesn’t love the fun of dressing up for a specific, fun occasion? This can be intimidating for anyone but hopefully we can help each other fight the frump and step up our outfits for this fun time of year!
The holiday season is a unique time in that you usually attend many events, parties, and outings, all of which can range from a day at the pumpkin patch to a formal holiday dinner. This can be a challenge when you need to dress appropriately for your mom life and do so on a budget. Most of us don’t want or need the extra pressure of a whole new wardrobe to get us through this season.
If you are new to the blog, our purpose here is to give you tips, advice, and ideas to keep your outfits looking cute, classy and in-style, while keeping our focus on mom-friendly. Today let’s conquer this in a fun, festive holiday fashion!
Earlier this year we started some contests to see how you would style a particular piece of clothing. Our most recent contest was not just for one item, but holiday outfits in general!
Many of the outfits pictured below are based on outfits from our popular Year-Round Outfit Guide for Moms.
