Vacation Outfit Roundup To Rock Around The Clock

Looking for the best holiday outfits? I can’t blame you. Being a beauty blogger, the holidays shouldn’t stop any of us from looking our best, as a matter of fact, it should be the opposite. Ugly sweaters shouldn’t be out of your list but I can’t say it should be the only one either. So if you want to be ready to take your obligatory Instagram photos this Christmas, then check out the best holiday outfits I rounded up just for you. Oh, and did I mention there’s a bonus?

I’ve always found the winter season quite challenging. It’s easy to see why a lot of women may just want to settle with an old sweater, it is sweater season after all. But as you probably know by now, I’m not the kind of person who wouldn’t take up a good challenge.

So I set out on a quest to find out the best holiday outfits a lady can wear and went to my friend Lauren. She’s an amazing DIYer so I probably had it coming when she gave me a mermaid tail blanket as an advance Christmas present. I’m not really sure how I can wear this to my office Christmas party but it was a thoughtful gesture. It can get a bit frustrating when you have good ideas, but you want only the very best. If it would’ve been a question of “What holiday drugstore makeup sets should I hoard?” or “What winter lipstick shades should I have in my makeup bag?” this would be a different story altogether. So when I got off the phone with my friend Jackie, I knew her answer was what I was looking for. Being a frugal holiday shopper, I only want the best quality and style for my money. So if you’re anything like me, dive into this list and be Christmas ready with the best holiday outfits!

Tips on beauty, makeup, cosmetics, skin care... etc.
