All I Want {To Wear} For Christmas
{Holiday Fashion from Lane Bryant}


Like many women {maybe even most women}, I have had a love-hate relationship with my body for as long as I can remember.  Especially the past several years since I have put on a few pounds.  The more curvy I got, the more I was determined to keep wearing clothes from my old favorite stores.  If I could still buy clothes there I wasn't really bigger, right?  What a dumb mistake!  It has taken me until just recently to embrace my shape, as-is, and figure out how to look my best now.  And I have discovered a new favorite store!!  Did you know Lane Bryant has really cute clothes?  Like, REALLY cute clothes.  And they're made for real women, not stick-straight mannequins, so they're actually super comfortable.  I was really excited when I was asked by Lane Bryant this week to put together a holiday outfit to share with you guys.  {Um, seriously . . . best job ever!}

I love to get dressed up!  My day-to-day life doesn't afford me much opportunity to break out the vintage party dresses and heels that I pin relentlessly on Pinterest, but I can usually count on the holiday season to provide a break from "the norm".  We usually have my husband's company party at a fancy hotel to dress up for, but this year I'm not invited.  Boo.  That didn't stop me from getting a fun, glitzy new outfit to wear.  I'll just have to create an opportunity for myself so I can wear it.

After browsing around on the Lane Bryant website to get some idea of what I wanted when I went to the store, I put together a couple of different looks to show you just how stylish their clothes are.  Since I don't have a formal party to go to this year, I decided to go with a dressy-casual holiday style.

How cute is that gray jacket? I think a really good, flattering pair of jeans can be dressed up or down.  With a pop of color and some sparkly accessories you can look "done up" without being over-the-top.

This outfit is my favorite:

I actually ended up buying that top and jeans.  When I went to the store and tried them on I fell in love.  It's been a long time since I went shopping for clothes and left the store feeling cute and excited instead of utterly discouraged.

{Wouldn't that pretty lace bra be a fun surprise for your significant other when you got home from your holiday get-together?  That might be all the Christmas shopping I would need to do for mine . . . Is that too much information? Sorry.}
