What I Wore: Holiday Capsule Wardrobe, The Christmas Edition


During the past week, I had get-togethers, errands to run, Christmas Eve and Christmas. So this is the “what I wore” holiday edition!

LOTS of green, because I had trouble finding warm autumn reds this year and the one shirt I thought would work, that I ordered from Coldwater Creek, turned out to be cool.

Now, this next green is really a green brown, but not so much a warm autumn color (more like soft autumn, I think). However, I love the way it feels (so comfy), so I decided to keep it, wear it anyway, and try to make it work by adding the right makeup. I think that worked, and what I used were more of the Elea Blake samples I mentioned last week.

What do you think? Am I getting away with it? Probably not quite! But it was wonderful to ding around in that day.

(By the way, please pardon the dust on my mirror!! It's right next to a window I always keep cracked, so it seems like I no sooner wipe it off than it has collected dust again.)

And finally, all green, with red accessories. I liked this outfit, too, though I wonder how often I’ll wear it after the season ends since I’ve worn it so much in the past couple of weeks!

And I have to say, this is my fave makeup look of them all, this week. Do you agree? I love that red lipstick!

Except for makeup and jewelry, my only red was on Christmas Day! And what a great day it was. I hope yours was wonderful, too.

What did you wear?

I am linking up today with Nina from Momma Go Round for Real Momma, Real Style  and on Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

  2. B.! How fun, a sequined top!! Hope you post pics. Thanks!! I felt like I was overdoing the green a bit, but honestly, it's so hard to find the right reds, so I decided to mostly stick with what I knew would work.

  3. That red lipstick is really flattering on you. And I love the idea of a green outfit with red lips and accessories for an autumn because the shades are a little muted and not too over the top Christmassy.

  4. (((Ann))), good to see you! I was just thinking about you the other day when I saw one of your comments. Hope you had a great Christmas.

    Thanks so much!! I like that lipstick, too.

    And I wanted to play more with warm, muted reds and greens this season but didn't really get the chance. Doing the green with red accents made up for that a bit!
