This is the post where I reveal my go-to holiday outfit and makeup. Basically this is what I wear to family gatherings, not necessarily the office party. OK, probably the office party, too. This outfit and makeup is designed to be unfussy so you can easily go from rolling around on the floor with your 2 year old niece to sitting with the grown-ups gossiping over a cocktail.
Reasons behind my “formula” are basically two-fold:
1. I don’t want to go out a buy a new outfit just for the occasion because I am trying to live better with less, and this time of year money always seems to be tight, no matter how well you plan.
2. I want my day to be focused on spending time with family and friends playing games, watching movies, chatting, sledding, recovering from sledding, baking cookies, and whatever else we dream up. I don’t want to be tugging/adjusting my outfit all day or feel like I need to touch up my makeup every 5 seconds.
