Easy Holiday Fashion + The Meaning of Christmas

It’s officially the holidays! ‘Tis the season for time with family, gift shopping, Christmas music, and delicious food (Oh, the food!). And of course, if you’re a college student like me, then you must also battle through finals. All of this hustling around can be pretty disorienting–even the fun parts.

It makes you wonder, what is this all for? Why do we spend these cold winter months gathering together and giving each other gifts? What is the magic of Christmas?

Well, it’s not really magic at all. It’s the power of the Holy Spirit, working through the love of God.

You see, Christmas and the holiday season represents everything that Jesus is–peace, love, hope, faith, selflessness, and grace. Although this is a post on holiday fashion, I want you to keep these truths in mind. This world not only needs more of Christmas–it needs more of the Savior.

And now time for some holiday fashion! Here are 3 easy looks to fit every style.

Midnight Flower

This look is for the girl who loves a night out–or who loves a stylish night in. When I think of holiday colors, my mind automatically sees red and green. However, a deep navy also adds a dramatic winter flair to your wardrobe.

Pair your midnight blue with a bold floral pattern–one of this year’s most popular prints. A long sleeve dress is classy and keeps everyone’s eyes on your statement look.

Winter Blush

Sometimes it’s the  subtle details that speak the loudest. Most people don’t think of wearing pastels in the winter, but a soft blush is romantic and warm for the holidays!

Pair a simple blush sweater with floral patch jeans.  A blush wool trench coat will add a touch of glamour at night, while a pair of pink cat eye shades will make you look chic during the day!

Fab and Festive

This look is for the girl who is full of the Christmas spirit! If a fun holiday outfit that looks pretty and cheerful is what you’re aiming for, then this is for you!

Channel your inner elf with reindeer leggings and a red fair isle tunic. Cute Christmas accessories like these snowflake earrings finish the look, but don’t forget the sugar cookies!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6 NIV)

Keep Looking Forward: The 3 Fashion Trends I Want to See in 2017

Happy Friday and New Year lovely readers and followers! 2016 may be coming to an end, but I believe that God has amazing plans for us in this next year. If you want to learn more about preparing yourself for the New Year and ditching old school resolutions, check out Wednesday’s post here!

Although I will be reflecting on 2016 this week, I want to keep moving forward into what the Lord has planned for me. This past year has been full of blessings, challenges, loss, and growth. I feel closer to God now than I did the year before, and I am so thankful.

It almost seems like my theme this year is to keep looking forward. This can be hard to do, especially when you’ve lost someone you love, like when my Grandma passed away. But I know that I can still grieve and keep moving forward. Lovely reader, you can keep moving forward too. No matter what you’ve lost or what challenges you have faced this year, Jesus can redeem anything you put into His hands.

So are you getting pumped for the New Year?! I know I am. I’m also excited to see what’s in store for fashion this year as well. I’ve seen a lot of fashion posts/articles lately on the best and worst fashion of 2016 (I’m looking at you crop tops and heavy chokers). Although I almost went this route myself, I decided to be more creative. Today’s post is on the top 3 fashion trends I want to see this year.

 The 3 Fashion Trends I Want to See in 2017

1. Printed Pants

I’m pretty sure printed pants are going to be making a huge comeback considering how popular they were this fall. I love how the neutral backgrounds keep this printed look fresh and classy. It’s so feminine and unique!

2) Sparkly Sweaters

I hate to break it to you, but winter’s not over. Although I am already looking forward to spring, bundling up is still a must. That’s why I want to see some sweaters with jeweled and glitter accents. Although that has never been something I would look for in a sweater in the past, I think it looks fun and festive for the New Year.

3) Tie Dye

I know, I’m surprised too. While looking for inspiration on Polyvore, I discovered that I actually really like tie dye–in soft, pastel hues. I guess it’s sort of like ombré hair; when done right, it looks so dreamy. I’m especially loving the idea of tie dye shoes (cue my inner 90’s fan girl!).

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland (Isaiah 43:19 NIV).

Save Lunabelle + Cozy Fashion

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! I am editing this post in the middle of the night because my cat Lunabelle is sick. She’s urinating blood, but we really can’t afford to take her to the vet.

If you would like to help, please donate here

If you can’t donate, please share and pray for healing for her. Thanks so much!

I can feel it in the air; it’s almost Christmas! I love this holiday because of all the baking, pretty lights, decorating the tree, and gathering with family and friends.

Of course, I love remembering the birth of my Savior Jesus Christ most of all. Even though we all tend to get busy this time of year, it is important to slow down and remember what God has done. Read the Christmas story and think of some things you are grateful for this year. And of course, don’t forget to reach out and help a neighbor.

Another thing I love about the holidays is being cozy and warm (even though it can be freezing out!). And yes, you can still look chic while bundling up. I love parkas. I have an olive green one like the jacket in this collage, and it is the warmest coat I have ever worn. Parkas are long and figure flattering, and they go well with any outfit.

Flannel is also in style, and we all know it’s super warm. Try updated colors like blue, peach, or purple this year. Dark skinny jeans and simple ankle boots anchor this outfit for a casual, yet polished look. Perfect for going out Christmas shopping!

For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11 NKJV).

Styled in Skirts

Happy Friday beautiful readers and followers! I don’t know about you, but I’m a little tired of all the cold and snow. My prayers go out to everyone in the north east who will be experiencing such bad snow storms.

It’s been awhile since I did a post entirely dedicated to skirts, so what better way to usher in spring then to think ahead fashion-wise? These collages I created are a mix of winter and spring looks that are perfect for a (hopefully) soon to be transitioning wardrobe. It also helps with the cabin fever!

Boho Beauty

I have yet to find a long, yet stylish denim skirt! I think this is perfect for winter or early spring–especially when paired with cute combat boots. Amp up the indie vibes with a boho printed top and fringe cross body bag.

Pretty as a Peach

This outfit is so cute and romantic, it would be perfect for church or even Valentine’s Day (which happens to fall on a Sunday this year)! A pale floral lace skirt and water color print shirt are feminine, but they are still edgy when paired with oxford shoes. I also featured this Instax Mini 8 Polaroid camera because I got one in light blue for Christmas and love it so much! Maybe I will do a post on it someday…

Play it Gray

I think that gray is one of the prettiest neutrals, and it looks so classy when paired with denim. Skirts with button fronts are still in style for the upcoming season, and you can keep the look updated with some printed high-tops.

Connect the Bows

It looks like polka dots may be the new print of the season, and they look so chic when printed on a flouncy midi skirt! I also like the look of bows paired subtly with the dots. I think this would make a perfect work outfit!

I hope you like these collages! They certainly make me want to dig out my maxi skirts and start thinking of warm weather again 🙂

Thanksgiving Fashion

Happy Friday! Thanksgiving is almost here, which begs the question, what should I wear? Some like to dress up, while others like to keep it more casual. The most important thing is to keep it comfy and chic!

So today I have made some Thanksgiving fashion collages that will hopefully inspire you as you think about what outfit to wear for the holiday. Enjoy!

Berry Beautiful

Gotta love pink! These pants make quite a statement, especially when paired with this cute sweater and oxford shoes. And no, I can’t get over this cat purse =^_^=

And now for a dressy, yet edgy look. A black floral dress with lace panels is trendy yet elegant. Don’t forget your statement bag and some combat boots!

Enjoy your turkey and pie this upcoming week and have a great weekend! I pray that you will remember all of the blessings the Lord has given you.
