The Christmas excitement is at an all time high in our house. We are so blessed to have many family members who live close to us so the holidays are a busy and wonderful time. I find most years I end up wearing black when I get all dresed up for Christmas Eve service or Christmas dinner, but this year I relaxed the reigns a bit and went for a softer Christmas palette when choosing everyone’s Christmas outfits.
Doesn't take much to excite Jake these days. At even the sight of a present he is all in! I love the burgundy tones in his plaid shirt. It has a wintery, cool feel but I can button it up and add a bow tie for Christmas eve service or keep it open with a darker tee underneath when he is ready to play. Kinsley's top I immediately fell in love with as it has a beautiful light pink embroidery detail just under the collar. The ruffles add a bit of charm and elegance but the material is comfortable and cozy for her.
Wayne and I couldn't have chosen more classic colours - boy blue and girl pink!! However I love how the colours play off of Kinsley's darker top and the burgundy in Jake's plaid button up. I used to think family photos meant everyone wore the same colour (I still have an all blue O'Reilly family photo that I love), but now I think it is beautiful to add different textures, colours and patterns when coordinating outfits.
These shoes!!! Winners and Marshalls always have incredible deals on shoes. I loved the strappy detail of these blush pink suede flats, complete with a gold zipper detail at the back. Wayne's neutral coloured shoes will work with so many different outfits and are the perfect accessory for all of our Christmas functions.
It's always a mad dash getting everyone dressed, out the door, and off to our Christmas events. However, this year at least I know our outfits are already planned and were so affordable at Marshalls and Winners. Kinsley's 2 piece outfit was $16!! That’s a steal in my books.
