I had my sweet granddaughter Alethea stay in my home for an entire week over Thanksgiving. She did very well, and allowed her mom to get some much needed rest, waking up only once every night. It must have been that fresh country air!
I took advantage of having Alethea home with me to do a holiday fashion shoot. We both wore burgundy velvet, but I must admit, Alethea definitely steals the show in her beautiful dress!
Alethea's dress had gorgeous pearls attached to her dress, so I echoed the pearl theme by wearing a pearl necklace and earrings.
I ordered this dress for Alethea from Macy's and I couldn't be more pleased with it. The pearl and silver accents are gorgeous and so elegant. And I love how soft and fluid the velvet is; perfect for a baby!
My velvet tee I purchased for $9.00 at JCPenney. It is the exact same one as the one I wore in THIS POST, except this one is burgundy and not blush. I absolutely loves these tees, they are so comfortable yet classy and elegant at the same time.
For my holiday outfit, I chose black dress pants and comfortable black suede wedges. I actually wore this outfit on Thanksgiving Day and even cooked in the kitchen with it (I did put on an apron during the messy parts of cooking). Our house was so hot that day, the weather was unseasonably warm, and we had both the wood stove and oven going all day. At one point the thermostat read in the 80's! The short sleeves definitely helped keep me cool!
I will probably wear this outfit again over the Christmas/New Years Holidays. It was so cool and comfortable. If your the mom or grandma in the family who spends most of the day in the kitchen, yet you want to still look nice, I highly recommend these velvet tees! They come in a variety of colors too!
I wore a burgundy lip stain so I could give Alethea kisses all day and not leave lipstick stains on her plump cheeks! :) My pearl earrings are from JCP.
The pants are by Worthington (old). They have unique zippered side pockets.
Finally, here are the professional photos of our holiday wear and links to where you can find them.
