What Would Holley Wear: Dreaming of a White Christmas

I’m having a difficult time shaking off this OCD bug (Obsessive Christmas Disorder).  And to make things worse, now I’ve started dreaming of a white Christmas. My therapist says the best remedy is to journal about it!  So let’s do this and talk about all the beautiful white/neutral ensembles to wear during the winter holidays.

“Over the river and though the woods to grandmother’s house we go!” Sarah Vickers, our favorite classy blogger, shows us how to travel to grandmother’s house in-style.  Her gray Kate Spade sweater with sparkly buttons paired with a metallic gray pleated skirt is over-the-top classy.  We love how she complements her outfit with a pink pearl embellished purse and pearl pumps! After all….she is “the classy girl who wears pearls!”

Wondering what to wear to a holiday party?  A vest is always a great option. A preppy-party look on our Pinterest board features a white puffer vest, white sweater and jeans accented with gold Tory Burch flats and gold jewelry.  If you need to dress your style up a bit, think about wearing white slacks with a gray sweater and gray and white faux fur vest….party perfection!

Show me a white faux fur coat, and I’m 100% crushing!  Point proven with a beautiful white coat accented with a touch of apricot….stunning!  And the bigger and fluffier…the better! According to Jennifer Lopez, “her love don’t cost a thing,” but it looks like her coat sure does!   Take a look at our Pinterest board to see some of these beauties!

It’s that time of year to start wearing an overcoat.  My board favorite is a white teddy-bear coat matched with a white sweater and gray plaid pants…ideal for our Texas winter. Gap gives us their usual preppy vibe with a white cable sweater and white jeans topped with a neutral brown cargo coat from Zara. Add a pair of LL Bean rubber boots and a knit beanie cap….and I’m calling it a “snow day”!

I don’t know about you, but eating s’mores fireside in the snow sounds like the ultimate holiday experience to me.  For this dreamy occasion, we suggest a white shearling jacket, white sweater and jeans paired with over the knee boots.  A white puffer coat worn over a pink sweater with white jeans and suede boots will definitely impress the ski crowd. Hmmm….I wonder what the snow is like in Aspen.   

Baby its cold outside!  One of my favorite holiday activities is sitting inside by a warm cozy fireplace.  And of course this means wearing something really comfy. A pair of gray sweats and an oversized white cable sweater is perfect for tree decorating.  A pair of black and white polka-dot pajamas says one thing to me….“let it snow!”

Whether you are gathering around a flocked Christmas tree for a cup of hot cocoa or playing outside in the snow with your pup….we hope all your Christmas dreams come true!
