Do you have a love\hate relationship with the holiday season? Every time it rolls around you get excited about all the hustle and bustle, the family, the spirit, the parties and decorations, but what you hate more than anything is the stress. I completely get it; the holiday season gets me too, especially the holiday parties. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good party but during the holidays you feel like you have to “look” good (glamorous) to get in the spirit. I’m not one to complain about getting dressed up (I love it) but it’s stressful and I think every female will vouch for me when I say…it’s incredibly time consuming.
Ladies, if anyone understands how unbelievably annoying it is to dress up for all those holiday parties it’s me, but that doesn’t mean it has to be unbearable or keep you from going out all together. You can still be comfortable, glamorous, and confident! Just because you want to look nice for the holiday party doesn’t mean you have to wear a short and skimpy little dress with 6″ heels. If it’s one thing you should be focused on this season, it’s yourself. Before you walk out the door in your outfit ask yourself, “how do I feel in this?” “Will I be comfortable?” If the answer is no then take the outfit off and try again. Don’t let your self-consciousness get the best of you because you think your skirt is too short or those heels are way too uncomfortable.
Here are a few holiday tips of my own (third bullet) as well as some from an article by Dr. Pam Spurr. Keep these in mind when you’re getting ready for the party. All you have to do is be confident in yourself and you’ll be the life of the party….guaranteed!
- Instead of wearing a skirt or dress that’s too short or too tight try a cute romper or a form fitting sweater dress (it’s too cold outside for the skimpy dress anyways).
- Instead of wearing heels put on a pair of sparkly flats; they go with everything and you can even use them for New Years too! (2 in 1).
- To top it all off, nothing puts you in the holiday spirit like actually dressing the part so before you walk out the door put on a cute little santa hat and let the festivities begin!
