Shop the look:

Look! There’s snow! And I’m wearing an honest-to-goodness winter outfit – the first one in many moons! Haha. Don’t worry this isn’t Sydney. This was actually my Christmas Eve outfit for when I was back home by my family.

I passed up the traditional red and green outfit for a couple of reasons this year. First being I really wanted to wear this outfit but it’s been too warm in Sydney, haha. The top and the skirt were recent Black Friday purchases from ModCloth that I absolutely love…and have been wearing constantly. But I really like the way this outfit looks with booties, a pair of tights and a pop of color! (I had gotten some inspiration from Brittney in her feature!)

However, please note, both the top and the skirt are most definitely not white, they are cream. I was really in for a surprise, because every photo I’ve seen of this skirt always made it look white, but it certainly isn’t! It’s still adorable – and honestly, I’ve even seen it in person a while back (my friend, Shannon, bought it way before I did), so I should’ve remembered it’s cream and black.

And the second reason I didn’t look too Christmassy was because my mom wanted a family photo “to keep up all year” of all us kids. I honestly can’t remember the last time all us siblings (and my husband) were all in the same spot at one time. It was really awesome!

I also got to meet my nephew, Henry, when I was home for Christmas…but I’m going to make you guys wait until next week to see photos of him. (Spoiler: He’s the cutest little man ever!) 😉

Did you get to see any family members you haven’t seen in a long time over the holidays? Let me know in the comments!

    Lol, I like that your mom wanted a pic to keep up all year! Sometimes Xmas themed clothing is overrated…but that’s just my opinion! You look great and that’s awesome you got to have all of your siblings in the same place! XO

      Lol it has been a request she has made for many years! 🙂 And I agree on Christmas clothes. 😉 Thank you so much, Lauren!

  3. This is a dreamy Christmas outfit. I adore all aspects of it. The yellow cardie, the shape of the skirt and of course, AMAZING collar!!!x
