I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
It has been a little while since I took the time to pull together a fashion oriented post. With holiday season in full swing, I thought it would be great to look at some previous holiday outfits I’ve showcased and then talk about ways to freshen them up a bit.
My motivation to get this post up? Being the guest co-host for the Thursday Fashion Files.
If you are visiting from the Thursday Fashion Files, welcome to Life Beyond Kids! This is a newer site for me with a focus on women’s lifestyle that does not include the role of mother.

Holiday Outfits from the Past & Made New Again
When it comes to the holidays, I love to get dolled up and look my best. It doesn’t have to be super fancy, but it does need to be festive!
These outfits appeared last year on my other site, Day by Day in Our World.
The black sweater with a plaid skirt was an absolute favorite of mine. I’ve worn it multiple times, even after the holiday season was over.
The gorgeous red blouse with lace inset is something I felt less comfortable wearing out of the house.
From the front it seems fine. But, the backside has the lace panel going to your waist. While some might just let their bra straps hang out for all to see, I am not that kind of gal. A recent weight gain had my low cut bra no longer fitting as it did in last year’s picture.
Here’s my solution: a black tank top underneath so that I can wear any bra and not feel super exposed. If I had a skin toned tank top, that would be my first pick. But, I find that the layering with black and a black skirt works for me.
Finally, this red wrap dress is one that I originally used for Valentine’s Day. However, I think the red works well for this season, too.
