The Nutcracker

Welcome back guys!  Today I’m sharing my outfit for one of my favorite holiday traditions- The Nutcracker!  I really love the ballet, and combining it with Christmastime is like the ultimate reason to break out the formal attire (or the tulle.  All the tulle, please).  You can see my last Nutcracker inspired post here.  It’s always fun for me to see how my style evolves, especially since I can so clearly witness it through blog pictures.  Two years ago I was all about the pastels, and now I think this elegant midi dress is the perfect ballet outfit.  Naturally, I’m looking forward to see what I wear in years to come!

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is the ballet.  The Nutcracker will always be a timeless Christmas tale, and the ballet brings it to life so gracefully that it would be a shame to miss it even once.  Channeling the ballet’s tradition of pastels, I chose some cool winter tones and embellishments for some extra holiday glam.  This sweater is super cozy and warm, but I may add some tights with the temperatures still dropping consistently!  I also love this skirt with black for a sophisticated evening look- the embellishments add the perfect amount of extra sparkle for any holiday occasion!
