Holiday Tip: Festive Pants, Three Ways

oldnavydec7When I entertain during the holidays I always end up rushing around until the last second in my sweatpants and then have little time to change when guests start arriving for the party. A couple years ago I wore a pair of comfy but festive pants all day long:  while wrapping gifts, cleaning, decorating, and then just changed my shirt and put on lipstick when guests showed up. It was so much easier!

oldnavydec1Wrapping: Pair your festive pants with a comfy sweater + slippers for wrapping gifts and card writing (and be sure to crank those holiday tunes too!)


oldnavydec5Decorating: My favorite part of getting ready for a party! Keep those tunes cranked, and pull on a comfy tee shirt with your holiday pants, and a pair of  suede oxfords  (below) while you hang twinkle lights and light candles

oldnavydec6Party time: I love anything bright, red and silky for holiday parties to pair with your festive pants. A gold necklace pops nicely on the red too.




I agree with meg and katie, I might nit have looked twice at this pants on a rack, but I’m digging the red shirt combo!

If I had seen these pants in the store or online I probably never would have bought them. Seeing them styled this way is making me think differently about that….

Cute pants and love all the outfits. Especially the red shirt!

That’s a great idea! It’s not so nice to spend half the day of the celebration dressed quite badly, I’m really guilty of this. Must find something comfy, yet pretty and only a few days left! Thanks for the inspiration.
