It's time to start pulling out your seasonal best to dress up for the holidays! Christmas Eve is a week from today. We finally finished our shopping today (who else is extremely unorganized and scattered this year!?) and now I feel like I can focus on wrapping gifts, finishing up my baking and packing for all the upcoming travel we have over the next two weeks! 

I met up with Cindy of Cindy Bekkedam Photography last weekend and we shot a few of my favourite holiday outfits at the Andaz hotel in downtown Ottawa. Talk about a beautiful space! I'm still trying to figure out how I can incorporate their aesthetic into my own home. 

This crushed velvet top is actually a body suit from Zara. Body suits are so underrated! I was 100% against them until I tried one on and realized they are a total game changer. No more bulk from tucking in a shirt and much to my surprise, they are so comfortable. Now that I've been exposed to the world of body suits I'm not sure there is any going back. I've linked a few of my favourites down below! 

Body suit: Zara (I also love this one, this one and this one!) | Pants: Levis (similar) | Flats: Old Navy | Clutch: Aldo (old) 

What are you planning to wear for the holidays? Do you keep it casual and cozy or do you get glammed up to celebrate? I like the opportunity to do both. My idea of casual and cozy is new PJs on Christmas Eve but I also love the chance to wear a bit of sparkle for the holidays!
