Hi!! Despite my namesake, Lil Red has never been one for wearing red (Or green!) on Christmas day. It has been months since I got myself all dressed up because COVID and I wanted to show out when we safely celebrated the holidays at chez parents. So, I put together my own unique holiday look and, I’m not going to lie, your girl was feeling her damn self. So much so that I just had to have my mom snap a few (Or fifty) pics so I could share my OOTD with all of you. Check it out:
Who? What? Wear?
- Star Sweater: Chaser, TJMaxx
- Black Skirt: A New Day + Vital Voices, Target
- Snakeskin Pattern Platforms: Vince Camuto, TJMaxx
- Heart Necklace: Meredith Leigh, TJMaxx
- Cuff Bracelet: Allsaints, TJMaxx
- Guillotine Earrings: Christmas gift from Johnny! ❤
First things first, please ignore my roots in these pictures! Lol, I can’t get my hair done until January 22nd and it is driving me CRAZY! Second things second, I absolutely love my holiday OOTD. I felt completely posh and there is something to be said for outfits that you feel beautiful in without showing a lot of skin. This is also an outfit that I can picture myself wearing again – not just on a holiday.
My Chaser sweater with the gold embroidered stars added a festive touch without going overboard and the creamy coloring is oh so lux. Paired with a pleated skirt with lots of movement and the unique pattern of silhouetted faces added the quirkiness while my snakeskin platforms gave a healthy dose of glam. And who says black and brown don’t go together?! I have heard time and time again that you should never pair a black bottom with brown shoes but when has Lil Red ever followed the rules of fashion? I thought it looked great!
Not only did I get to break out some new clothes but I also wanted to wear all of the accessories that I have treated myself to. I am in love with the earrings that Johnny got me for Christmas and I can’t get enough of my Allsaints cuff. My niece was enamored by my glittering heart Meredith Leigh necklace and it was special to me too because Johnny had to help me take it on and off because the clasp does not work well with my talons and it was a really sweet moment. ❤
I received compliments all day from my family about my outfit and it made me feel awesome. Like I said, it’s been a while since I “threw some paint on the old barn” and I was bursting with self confidence and holiday spirit, lol. Christmas with my family was the absolute best and I can’t wait to rock another killer OOTD next year!
How do you dress up for the holidays? What is a fashion rule that you love to break? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

I love the star sweater ! And you got that at TJ Maxx??? I have the roots too. I feel ya !! Every Xmas it’s tradition I wear a Mariah Carey Xmas hoodie or t shirt and I play her music all day long. Even this Xmas quarantined I had the hoodie and music going. I do like the outfit and it wasn’t even very expensive !
Omg my one friend would love your comment haha she loves Mariah Carey and I got her a notebook this Christmas that said “What would Mariah Carey Do?” on it lol 😀
