The glitzy holidays are rapidly approaching, y'all. Christmas will be here before you know it, and the New Year is soon to follow. Can you believe that it's already December? I can't! November passed by in a flash, but I am excited for Christmas to finally come. I am planning to share a ton of fun presents with my family this year, and it's always a blessing when I can give my family great gifts.
Besides gifts, one of my favorite parts of the holiday season is the fashion. There are so many sequin-laden outfits to wear this time of year. It's the only time besides Valentine's where it is perfectly acceptable to wear all the fun sparkles. You can seriously be head to toe sparkles, and no one is going to say anything. It's awesome. Let's delve into some holiday fashion inspiration
Note: Simply Be graciously sent the dress for this look for me to style, but all opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

To celebrate today's joyous blogging occasion, I decided to showcase some excellent fashion tips for serving lewks this holiday season.
1. Sparkle It Up
As you can tell by this blog, I am a fan of all things sparkle during this time of year. I think sparkles add something fancy to holiday looks. It doesn't matter if you are getting ready for a Christmas dinner or a New Year's Eve party, throw on some sparkle, my friends!
2. Wear All The Red Lipstick
I'm a huge fan of red lipstick during the holidays. I mean, I'm a huge fan of red lipstick all the time, but especially during December. I don't wear anything too fancy. My lipstick here costs less than $5. It's e.l.f. Cosmetic's moisturizing lipstick in Razzle Dazzle Red. Unfortunately, I don't think they carry this particular color anymore, but they have plenty of similar colors on their site.
3. Get Something That's Gonna Hide Your Food Baby
I love this dress from Simply Be because it hugs my curves so nicely. The knotted middle on this dress bunches up in all the right places to hide any food babies that might happen during the holiday season. It doesn't completely conceal my curves; it just makes them better.
In my infinite wisdom, I waited a bit late to film this look, and this dress isn't on the site at the moment. I see that they have a dress on their website called the Simply Be By Night Glitter Knot Wrap Dress that will do the same thing this dress does. Plus, it's cute, and it comes in two colors. Check out the dress here and here.
4. Wear Comfortable Shoes
I am all about comfy shoes over here. I know that it's custom to wear heels and look cute, but I don't have time for that. I'd wear tennis shoes all the time if it were up to me. In today's look, I am wearing the Bowla Oxford Flat in nude from JustFab. I've been wearing this shoe a ton. While they aren't the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn, they are much better than heels, and they are pretty cute.
5. Don't Be Afraid To Smile…Or Not
While a smile can be one of your best accessories, you don't have to smile during the holidays. I think whatever you have on your face is perfectly acceptable, girl.
Whether you are posing for a group shot or just going about your everyday life, you can look like whatever you want.
My usual go-to look is a smile, but sometimes I like to throw a serious gaze in there.
