Three Outfits for All Your Holiday Activities: Active, Elevated Casual, and Dressy Casual

Outfits for Holiday Activities: Active, Casual & Dressy casual

Huge thanks to JCPenney and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post

Anyone else gearing up for the marathon of the holiday season?  It’s a busy time filled with lots of errands, shopping, get togethers, and parties.  It’s fun, but busy!  There are a million things to think about during this time of year, so today I hope to relieve you of at least one of them: what to wear!

Today I’m partnering with JCPenney and ShopStyle to share three outfits for a variety of activities during the holiday season.  JCPenney has SUCH affordable clothes at prices that honestly blow my mind sometimes!  It’s a great place to get a few new pieces to wear for the holidays without breaking the bank.  And today, JCPenney is running a special sale!  In addition to current sale prices, you can get an EXTRA 25% off when you spend $100+ with code GOSHOP41.  Can’t wait to share some of my recent finds with you!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes, 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

Errands & Active Family Time: Leggings + Tunic Hoodie
First up is a comfy on-the-go outfit for errands with a soft hoodie tunic and leggings!  Wear this if you love to be comfy for errands or when you’re doing active things with your family, like going on a family walk or heading to the park.

I know you guys are always up for a good top you can wear with leggings, and this one is cute, comfy, and affordable.  It’s tunic length on me at 5’6″, measuring 29″ from shoulder to hem.  The curved hem gives it some movement.  And, who doesn’t love a front pocket to hold your phone while you’re on a walk or at the park?  It’s a medium to lighter thickness–not super thin but not thick either.  It comes in 6 colors which you can see HERE.  It’s currently on sale for $17.99 or $15 if you spend $100+ to get the extra 25% off!  I wear size S.

These leggings are only $14.99 (or $12.79 w/ extra 25% off) and pretty darn comfy!  This material pleasantly surprised me with a unique ribbed texture.  Often, inexpensive leggings feel suffocating (blech), but this material doesn’t at all!  These feel breathable, and they hold shape while not being constricting.  They come in grey and blue HERE.  I wear size S.

Elevated Casual for Lunch or Dinner w/ Friends
Here’s an elevated casual fall look with this button mock neck top.  This silhouette looks tailored and polished, but is SO effortless to wear!  It’s also very comfy as it’s soft and flexible, and it floats away from the body for a roomy fit. This top is only $17.99!!! (Or only $15 w/ extra 25% off!)  Can you believe it?  It comes in green, maroon, blue, and brown.  See them HERE.  I’m wearing size S.

Pair the top with dark wash jeans and tall boots, and you’ve got a chic casual outfit for lunch or dinner with friends.

Dressy Casual
Here’s an outfit if you need a nicer outfit for a dressier holiday dinner or a night out.  This top is another one of those effortless pieces that can be worn casually with booties and a cardigan, dressed up for work with slacks and pumps, or work for going out with a moto jacket like I did here!  It’s $24.99 on sale, or $21 with the extra 25% off.  Find it HERE.

If you’ve liked the idea of a moto jacket but don’t usually love leather/faux leather, this is a GREAT one to try!  It’s a heavyweight knit fabric that is SUPER stretchyVERY comfy to wear all day!  It’s currently on sale for $34.50 or only $29 w/ the extra 25% off, so be sure to check it out HERE!
