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!

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing some holiday inspired outfits that began at T.J.Maxx! Their stores are absolutely stocked up right now for the holidays, and have pieces for every type of holiday gathering. TJX brands have always been a great place to score designer pieces at affordable prices, but I have to say I was so impressed with their holiday selection this year. As someone who will wear 95% sweaters for the next four months, believe me when I say their sweater game is strong. Filled with vague holiday inspiration, they are perfect for the season but versatile enough to continue wearing throughout the rest of winter! I will wear almost entirely sweaters to get togethers from Thanksgiving to New Year’s because I absolutely hate being cold, but it can be challenging to find new and exciting ways to wear a sweater than with a pair of jeans and riding boots. So I’m challenging myself to find sweaters this season that I know will look just as cute with a festive skirt as with a pair of jeans!
I bought this LC Lauren Conrad tulle skirt last year and it was absolutely perfect for Christmas Eve, but I wasn’t sure I would be able to find another way to wear it this year. Luckily as soon as I saw this Ivanka Trump sweater I knew it would be the perfect match, and even appropriate as early as Thanksgiving with a cooler color palette! I adore Ivanka Trump’s entire line (we are birthday twins, after all!), but I often find it hard to justify the hefty price tags (I bought my favorite black boots at 50% off in February last year). I’ve spotted so many to die for items at T.J.Maxx from my favorite designers, and the only thing I love more is the price tag. I was able to find this sweater at Lord & Taylor online, but make sure you check your local store for it and other similar styles!
