J Crew Blouse
Marc by Marc Jacobs Bag
Whenever the holidays hit I start over thinking what I'm going to wear. I always assume that what I wear to my family events will somehow define how my entire year has gone. I want the comfort of sweat pants, the forgiveness of an elastic waist (this year I ended up with 3 turkey dinners, a lunch and a brunch in a matter of 3 days), and I still want to look put together.
So during my mission to try to find this perfect outfit that screams "I had an amazing year and I swear I have my life together" while being comfortable and stylish, I usually end up only giving myself 5 minutes to pick what I'm going to wear.
Spoiler alert, I ended up wearing a skirt (with an elastic waist) and a blue silk blouse.
I tell myself that I'm not alone, that everyone puts pressure on themselves around the holidays and this is normal. Right? RIGHT?
