Playing with Holiday Wear

Some less-traditional holiday style inspiration for whatever shin-dig is heading your way in the next couple of weeks.

I’m in LOVE with the new trend of blurring the lines between formal and casual. I mean flats – as in sneakers not just your perfect pair of ballets – with dresses? And the gorgeous model’s and savvy street style bloggers are all on board? As a mom of two may I just say: woot!



So that was my inspiration for my family’s party-look photo shoot. Though I did refrain from wearing my actual sneakers with my Badgley Mischka (tried them on, but refrained) -- I loved throwing this chambray top on with it. It made it more functional for chasing around after kids and more versatile. I can be the one who can’t resist an excuse to dress-up at a less-formal gathering or the edgy one at something more formal. The kiddos outfits were based off the same idea, throwing casual elements in with their party-wear. K rocked his black skinnies and sneakers to balance out his snazzy button-up look. H’s beanie, leggings and UGGS were a fun contrast with her gorgeous (amazing, soft, incredible) Nellystella dress. Poor R is always last on the list: “oh btw I’m contributing to the Denver Style Magazine blog now and want to do pictures this week – do you have anything?” Luckily for him he always looks good in his man bun. I think we turned out quite presentable – and by presentable I mean absolutely fabulous. It helps that the blonde hair seems to have dominance in the gene pool.

I love how the kids are fighting over personal space in this next pic. I felt like it was the only one that actually showed how much work I put into my hair so I had to use it. The decisions you face as a fashion obsessed mom: what matters most – the kids looking great or me looking great? This is probably how we would look by the end of a holiday party anyway:).
