Cute & Casual for Christmas

Thank you, thank you for the love on our colorful Sugarplum Christmas Home Tour yesterday! I can’t believe there’s only a week left before I take it all down! šŸ˜‰

I’m kind of obsessive about it, but as soon as Christmas is over, I’m ready for a clean slate. How about you? It drives Mr. SP crazy, and he sometimes insists we leave it up until after the New Year. We’ll see who wins that battle this year!

We have several family gatherings between now and Christmas Day, so today I’m sharing some cute outfit ideas for all your casual get-togethers. This darling Christmas plaid is the center of them both, and it’s all surprisingly affordable!


Plaid ShirtĀ (similar options here) | Similar Black Jeans

I love the classic colors of this plaid, and it’s soft brushed flannel for extra coziness. Paired with black jeans and boots, the whole style is elevated to a dressier look.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS, but would prefer the fit of a small.

As much as I love the plaid, this coat is the real find…I adore the feminine fit-and-flare shape, and fun faux-fur hood. Plus, it’s heavy and warm! It comes in several colors, and dresses up any outfit. (Also perfect for pairing with your dressier styles.)

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small petite.

For a more casual look, I paired the plaid with a quilted vest and flat boots. The red is so festive for Christmas, and this vest comes in tons of colors and patterns, and a steal at under $20!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS vest, but would prefer a small.

    Christmas season ends with Epiphany, Jan. 6, so it’s perfectly reasonable to leave Christmas tree up until at least Jan. 1.

    Oh boy, we are all in love with that coat! We keep our Christmas decorations up until Epiphany. In the Midwest, winter is quite long, so to begin the first week of the new year with lights and festive decorations sure is comforting!

    We generally do not start our holiday celebrations until Xmas eve due to work schedules so we may leave the tree up until Jan. 15 or do. I teach and most of our family works for a college or nonprofit or are self employed farmers so we cannot do much celebrating until the week of the holiday. A little sad that our culture is so eager to end the season.

      It’s not so much that I’m eager to end the season, it’s just that I’m ready to have my house back in order and minimal! After 6+ weeks, it starts to feel cluttered to me. But everyone is different!!

    Since you’re a blogger, you do have to put up decorations a lot earlier than you’d normally choose so I can see why you’re looking forward to a clean sweep up. But I think the house always looks a bit dull after all the fun of lights and ribbons and decorations so I compromise; I take down the tree and anything that screams CHRISTMAS and leave up everything I can label WINTER and go with that until valentine’s decorations start showing up…

    I agree with you! It has nothing to do with ending the season. For those of us who believe Jesus is the reason for the season, the season lasts all year! I love to have my house decluttered. I tried decorate a little less this year so I wouldn’t feel like it was so cluttered. I often take mine down on a day that coordinates with my cleaning lady coming if it works out just perfectly since she only comes every two weeks. To take it down one day and have the house cleaned the next is the best! And I had to have that black coat – my bday is 1/6, so I asked my girlfriends to get it for me. Merry Christmas!
