Over the years, le Monsieur and I have simplified our holiday celebrations. We’ve kept what’s most meaningful to us from our various family traditions, and created a few of our own.
This post is sponsored by EILEEN FISHER. All ideas and opinions are my own. All clothing items shown were gifted except the light blue merino turtleneck. Accessories and shoes are my own.
It will be just the two of us this year (well three, including Gigi, the sweet-but-lively terrier mix 🐕 🐾 we adopted in August). Though we don’t do a tree, I do like to put up some greenery and lights on the mantel. I love the evergreen fragrance, and some twinkling lights make everything more festive.
Gigi likes to be a part of whatever is going on…
A cozy capsule for the holidays
I really like this merino turtleneck top in regenerative wool! It’s light and SO soft, not itchy at all. I’m wearing size XXS here. These pants are as comfortable as sweats, but a more polished in organic cotton knit twill. (When we’re traveling again, these would be an excellent choice for travel wardrobes!) I’m wearing Petite Small.
(And I love that EILEEN FISHER Regenerative Wool supports farmers who are using humane and sustainable practices, as well as helping to restore grassland in Patagonia.)
We’ll have to celebrate Hanukkah remotely with Jeune Homme this year. So we’ve arranged a Zoom with him one evening for the candle lighting. And we’ll drop off some presents beforehand at his group home for him to open after the candles.
So nice, I chose it twice…yes, it’s the same regenerative wool turtleneck in a different color (“Clearwater”). This time I’m wearing the Petite Small. The these ponte knit slouchy ankle pants are a comfortable-but-polished style, and I’m always thrilled to find ponte knit styles in other neutrals besides black. Wearing Petite Small.
We’ve hosted a family New Year’s Eve party for the last several years. We usually put out a buffet with a raclette station as the main attraction, and play games until midnight, when we toast the New Year. Though we’ll be celebrating remotely this year, I think I’m still going break out the raclette maker! 😋 🧀
This EILEEN FISHER velvet top and pants are as comfortable as pajamas, but can be dressed up to party. And they’re machine washable! 🥰 I’m wearing Petite Small in the top, and X-Small in the pants. (A sizing note: the top runs slightly smaller; if you’re broad through the shoulders/arms you may want to size up.)
Here’s the wonderful thing about all of these EILEEN FISHER pieces: they can be re-mixed in any combination! Any of the pants could work with any of the tops, so make a great capsule wardrobe. 😉 All styles shown are offered in Women, Petite and Plus sizes too.
