There’s nothing like being home for the holidays. For me, home on Christmas is actually always Jackson Hole at my grandparents house and not in Santa Monica where I live. I’ve been home in Santa Monica all of December though, which is rare for me since I tend to take so many weekend trips. Let me tell you, I’ve loved nothing more than enjoying my apartment in all it’s festive glory. Allison and I go all out when we decorate so, when I’m not at a holiday party, my favorite December pastime is curling up by my tree to watch a Christmas movie. I’m truly loving time at home for the holidays!
I love these black lace pants that I got specifically for the holiday season (although I wish I’d gotten them one size smaller… if you’re between two sizes then I recommend getting these in the smaller of the two sizes). They are a great alternative to black jeans when you need to dress up and to dresses when it’s too cold not to keep covered. Pssst, they also come in blush and are 30% off!
It’s impossible to turn a corner without seeing velvet! I love it as I actually have a solid handful of velvet pieces already in my closet from a few years ago when velvet was last in. I just love the plush material! This velvet cami is the perfect top of have on hand this holiday season because it goes with everything. I like both dressing the cami up like I did here with these lace pants and heels and dressing it down with distressed jeans and booties. I linked a bunch of other velvet camis for you down below too!
Are these heels not the cutest things you’ve ever seen!? They are sequined and have festive pom poms on them. Such a fun, flirty show and perfect for New Years!
I rarely wear a red lip but I’ve been really into the bold look this holiday season. Red lipstick gives me a little extra pep in my step because it’s such a merry color! I’m really liking this red lipstick.
I love spending the holidays with Edwin! I simply can’t wait for our first Christmas together next year as newlyweds. I’m so looking forward to making our own traditions. Edwin is wearing a great and easy holiday look for guys: khakis, a button-down, and desert boots (he has his desert boots in suede too, which make them a little more dressed up!).
On Jillian: Top (30% off but selling out so: similar, similar) / Pants (30% off!) / Shoes (they come in pink too!) / Lipstick / Earrings (old – similar)
