Keepin’ It Festive, Casual & Cozy…

Mom life and teacher life is always crazy, which unfortunately means we get a late start on our holiday festivities and shopping. However, with it being the holidays and all, of course you know this mama must be rollin’ in style.

This past weekend kicked off the first of our Christmas break. Thankfully my husband and I are both teachers, so we get the same vacation–meaning we’re able to be super productive in a short time.

First stop… McKinney, Texas.

This chic and adorable little town allows me to find affordable, yet unique gifts. I also get to antique shop, which my husband just loves (insert sarcasm). On this stop, I kept it festive!

This festive poncho (originally from Urban Outfitters) is by far my favorite piece for the holidays! Click here and here for two similar looks.
I paired my casual overalls with this super chic pussy bow blouse, just like I did in the fall.This look wouldn’t be complete without a knit pom pom beanie.
My rustic decorative sled I just had to have! I was inspired by the amazing Pearls and Petunias.  My husband is such a great sport! Ha! Thank goodness he’s always down for a photo opportunity. Click here for a similar hooded vest, and here for his plaid flannel.
Click here for my Sassy Pop’s “Be Bold” Old Navy graphic tee and here for her hat.
Also check out Tayteebear’s similar Old Navy boots, and patchwork denim.

Next Stop… Trade Days!

On the next stop, I kept it a bit more casual at trade days, sort of an antique flea market… I switched out my festive poncho and formal pussy bow blouse for my casual military cargo jacket and black turtleneck.

How cool is this lumber jack hat?
I’ve had this awesome jacket since I graduated from college, but click here and here for a similar military cargo jacket.  These Target rain boots are amazing, but unfortunately they’re long gone… but check these boots out! Pretty darn close!
Love this hat  This look minus the jacket… <3

Last Stop… Enjoy Christmas Lights with the Fam!

On our last stop we took a family walk enjoying all of the festive Christmas lights. We also drove through a strip of choreographed dancing lights. Love this time of year.

Everyone must have a cozy puff coat–see a similar one here.
Love this faux fur pom pom beanie!

Jam packed day… but so worth it when you get to enjoy it all with family.

Wishing you all festive, casual, and cozy holidays!
