I can't believe it's that time of year already. It seems like it was just yesterday when I was working in my garden. Now the ground is covered in snow, the temperatures are below freezing, and Christmas is just a few weeks away. Has everyone got all their Christmas shopping done? I did almost all my shopping on-line on Cyber Monday this year. I got so many deals. I don't think I'll ever shop Black Friday again! Although I did find the entire experience so frustrating. I literally was on the computer all day long, and boy did I have a splitting headache when I was done!
Anyway, because it's that time of year, I wanted to show some posts in the next few weeks of holiday outfit ideas. I don't know about you, but I see so many holiday outfits that are completely impractical for both my lifestyle and my climate. It seems there are so many spaghetti strap dresses and strappy heels advertised for the holidays. It's way too cold and snowy in Wisconsin for those type of outfits, so I wanted to create a holiday outfit "Wisconsin Style".
I decided to wear a metallic gold sweater to bring on the holiday glitz, then I added a lux black fur vest to keep warm and also add even more glitz and glamour.
My bottoms are ponte knit pants, which keep me super warm and comfy.
Now I am wearing heels in this outfit, but if ice and snow are a problem for you, the heels could easily be switched out to ankle boots. Or, you could do what I often do: wear winter boots outdoors, and switch the shoes out to heels once inside.
I bought this sweater last year from JCP and showed it to you in THIS POST. It is a beautiful metallic gold and has this lovely neckline. It's the perfect holiday sweater!
The fur vest I also picked up last year at JCP for only $12.00. I know, what a steal eh? It's so warm! I've worn it numerous times and showed it to you before HERE .
The argument of wearing leggings as pants never seems to end. I think I just decided to throw in the towel on this issue because everyone continues to wear leggings as pants no matter how many bloggers speak out against it. These are ponte knit leggings which are actually described as 'pants'. They are super thick, so I have no problem wearing shorter tops with them. I bought them from JCP last year, but they are still available.

I hope to bring you more Holiday Outfit Ideas in the weeks to come. I even created a Holiday Fashion Board on Pinterest HERE featuring all my favorite Holiday Outfits I've seen so far in Blog Land.
Have a Great Day! Amy
