Christmas is here!!! I can’t believe how quickly this day has come. I feel like I just put my decorations up even though that was actually way back in September. And I am honestly not ready to say goodbye to the lights and tinsel yet.
Dressing up for Christmas is one of the highlights of the season for me too, with all the red, green, plaid, and sparkle. It just makes me so happy picking out all the festive prints and styles, and doing all sorts of equally festive activities in them – even if it’s as simple as wearing an ugly Christmas sweater with some cozy PJs to binge-watch sappy Holiday movies. So before I say goodbye to my favorite time of the year, I put together a little Disney Holiday lookbook of outfits I’ve been wearing through the season, using some of my Christmas staple pieces.
Now, I know this will be a lot less than the number of looks I’ve done for my Disney Capsule Wardrobe blogs in the past (which I’ll link down below). But this past month has been so overwhelming, this is really all I had time to do.
So instead of creating 20 outfits from 10 pieces, I will instead show 6 pieces that I styled in 12 different ways – two Holiday outfits per piece.
(Sparkly Ears and fairisle sweater)
Who else loves being extra at Holiday parties? Just me? Lol okay. For my first look, I wore my fairisle sweater with a snowy white tutu and white pumps. Love how my ears are so sparkly that they almost look like Christmas lights.
Inspired by my personal Christmas tree that brings me joy every time I wake up to the sight of it, I just knew I had to create a look to match it. (If you’d like to see a Holiday room tour, I’m doing one on my Instagram stories today. Go check it out).
For a more casual Holiday get together, I paired my chosen pieces with white pants instead. Added a little statement piece/conversation starter with these silver booties. I know they’re not for everyone, but I love how they bring out the greys in my sweater. Plus they give such a fun vibe!
Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
(Mickey overall dress)
For my next piece, I chose my well-loved Mickey overall dress. Went with another fairisle sweater because I’m obsessed with them lol. Then took inspiration from the reindeer on it and wore antlers and brown boots to finish off the outfit.
For the second look, I took inspiration from 2 icons in red – Santa and Mickey. Wore a chunky red sweater and black booties with my sequin Santa ears.
Strayed a bit from the traditional Christmas colors, and picked up the blues from my plaid trousers with my blue puffer vest and blue suede shoes. Mixed up the prints with my Mickey Santa shirt, and tied everything together with a bright red scarf and reindeer ears (since reindeer are better than people especially during the Christmas rush lol).
I love using pieces with multiple colors. This time I picked up the little hints of green in my trousers and paired it with an olive sweater, brown suede booties, and the Christmas lights ears I made.
(Mickey Christmas sweater)
This Mickey sweater looks so much like Christmas wrapping paper to me that I knew I needed to do something cozy and comfy for it. French tucked it into some simple jeans, and wore my favorite knee high boots with them. Topped off the look with my Mickey beret, since you can never have too many Mickeys (as seen in this Christmas fit I recently did in Tokyo Disney)
Brought out my inner 90s kid with my plaid skirt this time, and wore some cream-colored knee high socks and simple Mickey ears for a fun, retro Christmas look.
I’ll Be Home for Christmas
(buffalo plaid Mickey cardigan)
There’s nothing that says Christmas to me quite like buffalo plaid. It’s my favorite Holiday print. So I knew I needed to incorporate this Mickey cardigan I’ve had since last year into this lookbook.
Went with a preppier fit for this by pairing it with a white turtleneck sweater, red trousers, black booties, and even a matching buffalo plaid bowband I made myself.
Went a little retro again with this look. Wore my cardigan with a basic Mickey tee, high waisted black jeans, black suede boots, and a black beret. I love how simple it is to transform an outfit just by picking up different colors from a key piece. All I had to do was emphasize the black instead of the red, and how that immediately changed the whole feel of the outfit.
Here Comes Santa Claus
(Mickey light-up ugly Christmas sweater)
And last but not least, my Mickey light up Christmas sweater that can take you from Christmas Eve to Christmas morning.
Put together this loud and sparkly look with my go-to gold sequin skirt, gold pumps, and gold Mickey ears. I don’t think it can get any more festive than this.
Just look how fun this Mickey sweater is! The lights blink in different colors too!
And for my Christmas morning outfit – switched out the skirt for my fuzzy polkadot PJs and fuzzy polkadot socks, and decided to match Mickey with a Santa hat of my own.
Totally ready for a full day of Christmas movies, hot chocolate, and s’mores now!
Merry Christmas everyone!
May all your wishes and dreams come true.
