Holiday Fashion

Christmas gift and baubles on defocused lights background

If you’re looking for some threads for your kids, look no further. You are in the right place! Whether you’re shopping for an infant, toddler, tween or teenager, you are sure to find some items that fit your fashion liking. So sit back, get your pen and paper out and keep reading.

When I first started shopping for holiday outfits for my children, years ago, I thought it was going to be an endless battle, especially when shopping for my son, and it kind of was. I don’t know about you but it seemed (and sometimes still seems) like there is an unlimited supply of cute things for my daughters, however, for my son it is a completely different story. I mean, I would find some good items for him but most of the super affordable places had nothing that I thought looked nice on him. It didn’t, and still doesn’t, help that my son is a little on the husky side already…yep, that’s my football player.

After always needing to go to multiple stores to find something nice for my son, I decided that enough was enough. I was now on a mission to find just one or two stores that I would be able to regularly shop at for my little boy. To my surprise, I found a store that ended up being able to work for both, my sons and my daughters. The main store that I shop at for my son is Crazy 8. The girls also get a lot of stuff from Crazy 8 and Target but I mainly shop at Justice, especially for the two older girls.

So, are you having trouble arranging a good holiday outfit for your kiddos to wear to family events this season and/or for pictures? I have come up with a few styles that I am planning to dress my children in that may also help you out. Take a look…

My Boys:

The grey check button-up shirt paired with the black and grey Argyle sweater vest goes nicely with black corduroy rocker pants. I am going to let him wear some grey and black colorblock high-top sneakers and a grey herringbone cap. Everything came from Crazy 8.

*** I love it when my little guys dress up. I get very few chances throughout the year to get them all nice and “classy” so I take the holidays very seriously and this is usually the only time of year when I can get all of the kids together and looking nice for family photos. So, yes, it is an extra special time of year for us, indeed. ***

This year I am going to let my girls dress differently than they usually have in the past. Throughout the years, I have styled all the kids outfits to be almost exactly the same and the girls have always dressed very much alike for our pictures (don’t judge me; I thought that was cute). Now that they are getting older, they have asked to be able to wear things that are more of their “style” and to be different from each other, so we will see how this works out. We are all still going to be color coordinated (there is no one that will be wearing bright pink and orange while the rest of us wear grey or black, hahaha) but we are all wearing things that are more our own individual styles. With that being said, here is what the girls have decided to wear for our holiday photos.

Oldest Daughter:

My sassy singer’s outfit of choice includes: a grey belted top with a grey jean skirt and black leggings. She is wearing a  black accessories and black Mary Janes. The clothes and accessories came from Justice. The shoes came from Gap.

Middle Daughter:

Miss Free Spirit will be wearing: a grey and black patterned sweater dress with some black tights and black Mary Janes. The clothes and accessories came from Justice. The shoes came from Gap.

Youngest Daughter:

My little princess will be dazzling them in: a grey princess-like dress and black shawl with black tights, grey accessories and grey Michael Kors shoes. The clothes and accessories came from Crazy 8. The shoes came from Macy’s.

Hope this helped with some of your styling needs. Be sure to check back every Friday for more fashion tips, tricks and styles. Happy Friday!
