Hi friends,

December is speeding right along and I wish it would slow down just a tad! The boys are about to get our for the Christmas vacation, and we are so ready. This week they are “shopping” their holiday shop at school to buy gifts for each other. I am so excited our school is doing this for the first time. Gifts in the shop are like .25 cents up to $5-6 dollars. They took their own money to shop and have a budget written down on how much to spend. We talked about giving and thinking of others and how important it is do not only do this at Christmas time. I can’t wait to see how they shopped and what they picked out for each other.

This blog post is filled with my latest holiday looks and I will continue to update the blog page “HOLIDAY LOOKS” for an easy reference and central location for all my looks.

Wearing all black is sort of a holiday staple of mine. It is an easy go to and you will always look chic and put together. Add fun earrings, heels or a colorful bag to spice up your outfit.


Green blouse -tts | skinny jeans tts | black heels tts | leopard clutch | bracelets @shopbrightfaith

This green blouse is gorgeous y’all! When I first saw I instantly though Madewell vibes, but only $30! It will most likely be my family picture blouse this year. You can shop it here and it’s under $30!

My jeans were a black Friday purchase and I am so glad I finally pulled the trigger on these. They are currently 25% OFF and a great pair of classic denim. They fit like a dream and this brand is known for not sagging or getting baggy. It is my second pair to own and I am 100% impressed. Click here for yours! I also have these in the faded black wash-go down one size in these.

This outfit was perfect for my recent Christmas party look! Wore my coated denim and the fit was perfect. No stretching out or sagging at all. The fit stayed “fit”
