Aaand, here we are in Thanksgiving week. Despite the holiday decorations going up earlier every year, this is still the week that I mentally shift into Holiday Mode. I’ve found it’s helpful to have a few go-to casual holiday outfit ideas on deck, as our crew tends to be a bit impromptu when it comes to arranging get-togethers.
Casual holiday outfit ideas with jeans
The past few weeks I’ve found myself absolutely craving color in my outfits. It feels energizing, so I’m not fighting the urge. I’ve styled both of these outfits with jeans for more casual holiday gatherings, but will share some other non-jean looks soon. Many of the pieces I’m wearing are marked down quite a bit in the early Black Friday sales.
Bright & whimsical
There’s no rule that holiday outfits have to be red, green, or blue. This “brushed” yellow sweater (that I first featured here) is so fun & festive, and very soft. I’m wearing the X-Small. If yellow isn’t your thing, it’s also available in a soft, smoky off-white.
I’d wear this to a casual holiday brunch, Thanksgiving leftovers lunch, or other relaxed gathering at someone’s home.
Someone asked about the sleeve length on this sweater. I’m 5″1″ and don’t find the sleeves too long.
Polished & playful
This outfit hits my sweet spot for a mix of rough and refined. Yes, that’s another “Betty” cardigan (you didn’t think I’d pass up one in leopard print, did you? 😉). I’m wearing size Small. I love it paired with red!
Found in London
I’ve never really been much of a tea drinker, and still don’t care for most black teas. But I did get into the afternoon tea ritual, just with herbal varieties.
My hosts in London had this one on hand, and I had to order some as soon as I arrived home!
Have you watched the new episodes of “The Crown” yet? (On Netflix.) I’ve been fascinated with Diana’s earrings. Not the super big buttons, but some of those more sculptural gold ones have me hunting for similar styles.
