My Chrismas Day Outfit

Holiday Outfit TJMaxx

Nothing says family like the Holidays! And with Christmas in five weeks, I’ve been creating menus, gathering recipes, decorating the table, and getting the house ready for family, food, and fun. This year, we are hosting Christmas at our Memphis home and I am way too excited! PS – I am already really in love with the Holiday tablescape I’m creating this year (post coming soon – see last year’s here). But I’m sure I will have to clear the table settings to make room for actual dining.

When we go to other family member homes, I typically prefer to dress up a bit especially with heels. But since my family is hosting and I’m doing quite a bit of cooking, I want to be cute, but I also want to be comfortable. And I can always count on T.J.Maxx for my fashion needs, whether I want to dress up or dress down. My motto of ‘every girl wants to look and feel great without breaking the bank’ has always made T.J.Maxx stores one of my go-to places to shop, so when I learned I could now shop online at I couldn’t wait to start shopping!

I snagged this gorgeous cream fringe sweater I’m wearing online from When I saw it, I knew it was what I wanted to wear for Christmas dinner. (This sweater came in a close second.)

I also ordered these jeans from I am always a bit skeptical about ordering jeans online because I have a bit of a tush and am always afraid jeans won’t fit. But I absolutely LOVE these jeans. They have a bit of a stretch in them and they fit perfectly! They’re high-waisted and the studded-ankle grazing detail is so cute, and I know these babies will be in high rotation! I’m almost certain I’ll be wearing them out-and-about the next day for all the after-Christmas sales! (The good news is if they didn’t fit, I could have easily returned by mail or to my local T.J.Maxx store).

And can we talk about these gold shoes for a sec? How cute are these sequin heeled beauties? Although I won’t be wearing them all day, I will definitely start dinner with them. I really need to make sure everyone sees them for compliments! #sorrynotsorry I’m very positive I will be wearing these again for NYE! Because I must sparkle and shine, right?!?

And although I will be indoors for most of Christmas , I still want share the full-length wool coat I scored from I love that it has a removable faux fur collar…although I’m sure I will be keeping it attached most of the time because I love me some faux fur! Don’t you?

    Pretty boho looking dress! I’d love to wear this kind of outfit with a skirt lol though sometimes it looked weird. But yours looked just perfect, it’s sexy and sassy look!

    Ok you have no idea how refreshing it is to hear someone else talk about TJ Maxx the way I do, lol! All of my friends are SHOCKED when I tell them what I’m wearing, because they never take the time or sometimes even consider TJ Maxx for clothes. I love this outfit, too! I’m going to need those shoes ASAP!
