What Would Holley Wear: (OCD) Obsessive Christmas Disorder

Is there a doctor in the house?  I know I’m not supposed to self-diagnose, but I’m pretty sure I’m coming down with something called OCD (Obsessive Christmas Disorder)!  The good news according to my research….I should be on the mend by January 1!

Did I mention, we love Christmas “a-latte”?  Sitting by the tree with a cup of coffee and wearing a cute pair of pajamas definitely puts me in the holiday spirit.  From plaid flannel PJs to reindeer slippers, it just makes me happy! How cute are a pair of blue penguin pajamas? Pretty cute….right? And of course they look adorable when matched with penguin house shoes! Hmmm…a great gift idea for my daughter-in-law….penguin lover extraordinaire!   

You know that feeling when you are so crazy/busy during the season and just need a moment to catch up and meet a friend for a cup of coffee?  We’ve got just the look for you….a red coat! A red duffle coat worn over a camel turtleneck with white jeans and nude pumps is perfect for a quick coffee catchup with your bestie.  BTW…my holiday motto is: “Keep Calm & Drink Coffee!”

They’re back….tacky Christmas sweaters!  But the good news is, with a little tweaking, they can look “somewhat” fashionable.  To add an edge to your holiday sweater style, top if off with a faux leather jacket. A pair of red heels will definitely add a kick and a little class to your “tacky” sweater ensemble. Also think about wearing your sweater with velvet slacks, and drape a faux fur scarf over your shoulders. Wow…tacky never looked so chic!

Do I hear jingle bells?  It looks like my cousin, Alicia, invited her friend Jose’ Cuervo to a festive “girlfriend” party.  From her cute outfit to her Christmas margarita recipe, she’s ready to celebrate. How do you plan to add a little jingle to your holiday party style? From glorious greens to royal reds, our Pinterest board features an amazing array of holiday party styles. A board fav that shouts “Holley’s Style” features a red satin midi skirt matched with a black turtleneck and Gucci handbag.  Add a pink coat and this look definitely says….jingle all the way!!!

So here’s a personal question….have you been naughty or nice this year?  Oh my….then I think the “naughty” clutch from Harper’s Bazaar is the perfect holiday statement bag for you. When it comes to signature acrylic clutches, Edie Parker’s bags are the ultimate! Her “Ho, ho, ho” holiday bag is my favorite because it goes with everything, from a pair of jeans to an evening gown!

Rumor has it….a few of you are on Santa’s “nice list!”  So on your behalf, I decided to do a little investigative work and met with Neiman’s graduate gemologist at Clearfork.  To say their precious jewelry is breathtaking is an understatement. And just between you, me, and Santa’s elves…being nice never looked so dazzling!!!

Okay…let’s be honest, this OCD is really getting to me.  I’m starting to wonder if it will be as late as February before I recover.  Uh oh….looks like “someone” might be going to rehab!
