Fancy Pants for Christmas

Christmas is right around the corner and now that I am off on break I am focused on baking cookies, wrapping gifts, and getting ready for Christmas dinner. Although it feels like a lot to do, it's definitely a fun and festive kind of stress! (Much better than the stress that I associate with work!) Although I have been wearing non-stop plaid over the last week or two, it's also fun to find some ways to introduce holiday colors into your wardrobe that don't exactly scream "Christmas" the way some plaid does. I was gifted these pants last month from Trina Turk and I waited until this weekend to take them out for a stroll because I thought they would be lovely for Christmas. I picked them out because I love the rich, jewel-tone colors featured in the stripes. They definitely work for Christmas but they could be worn throughout the fall and winter months.

I thought the bow on the collar of my white shirt would also be the perfect nod to Christmas because bows and wrapping presents are both an integral part of preparing for the season! Speaking of presents, my Gucci sunglasses in this post were actually a Christmas present from myself to myself, so I didn't even need to wrap them! While it's true that I have amassed quite the sunglasses collection (Elton John and Bono would be jealous!) these are technically my first pair with crystals and they were pretty deeply discounted, so I didn't feel too guilty about purchasing them. Plus, it's the holidays, which is always a good time to indulge in treating yourself a little while you're looking for the perfect gifts for others!

Last but not least, my silky, satin pants are the perfect match with Rudolph's pants in the picture below. Who knew that Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer was such a style icon? To be honest, I kind of want his gold vest, as it would be the perfect addition to my outfit!


  1. What awesome pants! So festive and I agree perfect with the white shirt! so funny you coordinated unintentionally with Rudolph, haha!

    Have a merry Christmas!
