My capsule is large -- at least 5 pairs of trousers, 5 pairs of shoes, and it's not intended for special occasion wear, but is created instead to add a little bit of holiday flair to my everyday life. Outside observers might notice a bit of daytime sparkle and shine, or a a seasonal pop of red or green, but I'm not going for tinsel and Christmas sweaters here, but something wearable and fun.

The first installment is built around a boyfriend blazer that I wish was a tuxedo jacket, but I'm making do!
1. Worn to church for the first Sunday in Advent. I don't usually wear trousers, although many women do, but this was perfect as I have been a bit under the weather recently, and we went out for Mexican food for lunch. I'm loving the Munro booties!

2. As I staged it earlier --- tucked, which is a bit more casual. Which do you prefer, tucked or untucked?

3. Close up of lariat necklace and earrings that remind me of snowflakes.

4. Hinge blouse exchanged for the red cherry blossom shell.

5. What I wore to my homeschool group to teach music today. I had these jeans in the "donate" pile. I wore them extensively last year, and I'm a bit over them, but they do have that holiday spirit! They are not snug at all, but the light and shadows to my left make them look so. And yes, that is a plain Hanes tee, with my sparkly pewter and black animal print slipper flats. The women in this group and extremely casual, so I have to be carefully not to seem "fashiony." That doesn't mean I want to totally blend in!

6. ETA --- forgot this one: My outfit from the meet up with DayVies!

More to come from my holiday challenge. Thanks to DayVies for reminding me that I could dress for the holidays tastefully!

Do you ever create Holiday outfits just for your own pleasure, rather than an occasion?
