Can you believe that it is almost time for Thanksgiving and Christmas? Both holidays are my favorite. I almost always host a Thanksgiving dinner if we are not traveling.
Here in Oregon we do not have the best weather during the holiday season. More often than not it’s fairly cold and it’s pretty rainy and this factors in heavily to what the kids wear. Today I am sharing a little insight into my kid’s fashion for the holidays.
My daughter does not like to wear dresses when it’s cold and rainy, instead she prefers to dress up a casual outfit for special occasions. For example in the photo she is wearing OshKosh B’Gosh jeans and a unicorn t-shirt. On their own this might be too casual for a holiday event, but when she paired it with fur vest tied shut with a sparkle ribbon it was perfect.
Jonah hates dressing up, it’s just not his thing. He prefers t-shirts and athletic shorts, but he understands that sometimes he has to dress up slightly. Now the main thing is making sure he still comfortable, because I guarantee you that no matter what kind of holiday event I take him to, he is going to end up playing football. Also, he like to always have a “jacket” of sorts with him.
He picked out the two pocket flannel shirt to go under a a dressier layering piece, a sweater/fleece shawl collar pullover. I love his whole outfit and he loves being able to take off the pullover when it’s time to play ball.
You will notice that both kids outfits have common elements. First both kids can wear part of the outfits for casual everyday. Instead of buying an outfit they only wear occasionally I have bought pieces that they will wear all the time like jeans and t-shirts. Secondly, we dressed up each outfit with a layering piece. I am a big fan of mix and match stuff. They can take these layering pieces and wear them with other outfits.
