Dressed for the Holidays



It’s one week till Christmas! Are you ready? My kids are uber exited. Everyday new packages arrive in the mail, mostly from their grandparents.

I thought I’ll share some outfits we will be wearing on Christmas or over the holidays. My friend Emily did this photo shoot with us a couple of weeks ago. I posted some of those works of art  here.

For a photo shoot I try to see what we own already and buy as little as possible. I only bought Ella’s dress, cape, and hair pin,  and Esther’s dress and shoes recently. Everything else we either bought previously, got as hand-me-downs from our stylish cousins, or we thrifted. My jacket and Tasha’s red shoes were thrifted for example.

First up is Ella. Her dress and cape are from the Gap. Her shoes are from the Children’s place, tights are hand-me-downs. Her hair pin is from a local hobby store.



Next is Shane. The shirt is from H&M, jeans are from Old Navy. Pistol is from Cracker Barrel.


Next up is Finn. Finn always wears the same clothes so it is very likely he will wear this outfit from now until summer, unless he manages to grow out of it again. Top is from the Gap and pants are Levis.


Lucy is wearing all hand me downs except for her shoes and hair pin. The dress is from Gymboree, and the blouse from Ralph Lauren. The hair pin from Hobby Lobby, and the shoes from the Children’s Place.


Natasha is wearing pants from Carters, white top from Old Navy, and a tunic from Tea. The shoes are thrifted.

i-VDmMvgH-XLEsther’s dress is from Target, cardigan from Old Navy.


I’m wearing Levi’s skinnys (never thought I would be brave enough), top from Anthropologie, jacket from Talbot, boots from Merrel. I bought the buffalo leather bag decades ago in Frankfurt.This is the first pair of boots I have bought (other than snow or hiking boots). I bought rain boots to justify the purchase in case I didn’t wear them enough. Well, I wear them all the time. They dress up every outfit.



I will be posting Christmas pictures soon. I’m amazed how they turned out thanks to Emily. All pictures were taken behind our house.
