If you haven't noticed in these photos, it snowed and it snowed A LOT! It is officially Winter in Chicago. It has been really cold lately. UGH. The good thing though, even if it's cold, when it snows it's so festive and beautiful that it makes it SEEM like it's warmer. So the snow didn't bother me too much.

Here is another holiday outfit. As much as I love wearing a sequined, metallic, or cocktail dress during the holidays some of those dresses are not appropriate for Christmas Eve mass. Occasionally, my family and I would go to the Christmas Eve mass. I still like to look festive and dressed up and plaid is usually my go-to for a festive and classic style. This plaid shift dress is perfect for Christmas Eve mass. It is made with a woven fabric so it has that cozy knit look to it, and the 'berry' color is a subtle way to wear Christmas colors.

Pom beanies are my favorite winter accessories. They are so cute but they also do an amazing job keeping me warm. I actually wasn't planning on wearing a beanie for this outfit, but with how quickly the snow was falling, it was making my wig wet and I had to protect it! I actually like how the dress looks with the beanie. It looks more festive. Of course, I won't be wearing it in the church.

Do you guys do/go anywhere special for Christmas Eve?

  10. I have Raynaud's syndrome so just seeing the snow in your pictures made me feel so cold! Haha at least it looks festive, like you said!
    Also I seriously love this outfit, especially that coat! I am in dire need of a camel coat this winter and I stared at yours for ages haha!

    1. Haha! I only braved the snow because it usually feels "warmer" when it snows. Thanks for the sweet compliment Deborah! You should definitely invest in a camel coat. It's so worth it!
