7 Holiday Outfit Ideas

Yesterday I had the chance to run to the mall all by myself (thanks for watching Caroline, Mom and Dad!) so I did a little holiday outfit try-on at H&M.  All outfits are linked on LIKEtoKNOW.it  and below.  Ignore the shoes I have on in these photos, they were old Old Navy ones I wore to the store.  They do kind of go with some of the outfits though!

These pants are stretchy and comfy and super flattering.  And they’re high rise too which is pretty much the only kind of pants I’ll wear after having kids.  H&M runs small so I’m wearing a 6 (normally a 2 or 4 at J.Crew).  I bought this whole outfit I liked it so much!  The top has functional buttons down the back and it’s super cute, and the neck is kind of a faux cowl neck which made me like it a lot.  I’m wearing a small in the shirt.

floral wrap dress

I’m not typically into cold-shoulder sleeves but I loved this wrap dress.  The floral print is Christmasy but it’s subtle enough to work all year.  I’m wearing a size 6.  It’s $49.99.

I think paper bag pants and shorts are so fun.  They accentuate your waist and are comfy to wear.  And you can easily pair a simple t-shirt with them (this one is only $4.99 and I’m wearing a small).  I’d wear this outfit with a bold necklace or earrings and some pointy black heels.  The pants are $24.99 and I’m wearing a size 6.

This green dress is perfection and under $25!  I’m wearing the size 2 here but it was a bit tight up top and a little short.  I ended up bringing the size 4 home with me.  It’s more of a true green in real life, the lighting at H&M is a little deceptive.  The floral cutouts on the sleeve are a fun detail.  It would look great with tights too!

This sweater is so fun and has little pearls all over it!  I’m wearing a size small here but would probably size up to a medium for an oversized fit.  It also comes in gray, cream and black and is only $19.99.  The jeans are only $9.99 (marked down to $7.99 online) and were really great.  I was wearing the size 27 here and they fit but I think the size 28 pair would have been more comfortable.  I didn’t have time to try them on but may go back and get them.

These are the same pants as the top photo, just a different color.  The fabric isn’t quite as stretchy but they’re still comfortable.  I thought these were so festive and it would be fun to add some pops of sparkle or glitter and a sleek pair of black heels!  They’re $34.99 and I’m wearing a size 6.  I’m wearing the same shirt I had on in the top photo.

These fun shorts came home with me!  Perfect if you’re celebrating Christmas in a warm climate, like I am.  Pair with a simple tucked in t-shirt and you’re good to go!  I think these would also look great paired with a button down white shirt or a chambray shirt too.

I also snagged this cute headband and a pair of black tassel earrings.  You never know what you’ll find at H&M and I always love browsing the store.  Oh and I got this plaid dress for Caroline and this plaid shirt for Jack.
