This post is done in collaboration with Macy’s. As always, these opinions are 1000% my own.


The first brand that comes to my mind when I think about the holidays is Macy’s. If you are anything like me, Thanksgiving Day isn’t complete without watching the Macy’s Parade. As soon as Santa makes his way down the road, I officially cue the Christmas songs and start planning for holiday shopping. This year, I wanted to take a more “Christmas in the City” type of approach. While I’m completely enamored by the bright reds and soothing emerald greens, I am an edgy fashionista at heart. I love a little drama when it comes to the holidays…and I know I am not the only one.

My idea of the perfect holiday looks includes pops of red, a little bit of plaid, a sleek black number for the office holiday party, and edgy little number that I can wear to the mall all day long!  So what does my Christmas in the City look like?

 

The Every Day Look

Christmas in the City often involves commuting to work during the holidays and when your job is in the middle of downtown Boston, the sidewalk becomes your runway. One item that is a must-have during the holidays is plaid, and these plaid pants by Tommy Hilfiger hug the curves just right. Paired with Tommy Hilfiger’s Terzo Flats and a blazer, you’re 9-5 look is complete! This look is also optimal if you’re looking to go out for holiday drinks with your co-workers.

The Halls of Mall

During the holidays, I am at my fiercest. This outfit from City Chic gives me all the “fierce feels.” While most people are out in their sweats pants while shopping, the mall feels like an absolute runway for me, especially during the holidays. City Chic’s Skylar Corset Coated Skinny Jean accentuates every living curve of my body! And unlike most faux leather material pants I’ve worn, these babies have to be the best quality! Paired with their Layered-Look Shirt, how can you lose? Happy Shopping!

The Night Look

While I am someone who usually avoids jumpsuits at all costs, it was hard to avoid this one by NY Collection. The Cold-Shoulder Wide-Leg Jumpsuit is perfect for the Christmas party or family get together. With the option to widen the chest area, this jumpsuit can be worn on Christmas day or straight into New Years!
