While the holidays bring plenty of fun opportunities to get all dressed up, as hectic as things get, most of the time this mama just needs to be comfortable. I know I'm not the only one who will be racing around shopping for gifts, groceries and all the other little goodies I'll need to pull off hosting a variety of holiday events. From pre-school parties to cookie swaps, my holiday calendar is full, so I need to have comfortable pieces on hand to help get me through the mania.
As per usual, I have no plans to sacrifice style for comfort. Dizzy-Lizzie shirts, for instance, are a great start to a casual-chic look. They come in a slew of fun prints and I just love that you can wear the contrasting cuffs up or down. I styled my Dizzy-Lizzie shirt with skinnies, riding boots and, of course, a statement necklace. No matter how casual your look is, you can never go wrong by adding a bold bauble. It just ups the fun factor. Had it been cooler, I probably would have layered the shirt under a sweater. I'm a sucker for a good layered look. And flat footwear is a must for holiday running around, so riding boots are a winter wardrobe must have in my book!

Speaking of flat footwear, Oxfords are a fabulous alternative to sneakers. Throw them on with a slouchy sweater and boyfriend pants and you'll look cute, yet will be totally ready to take on the holidays in comfort. And while you're shopping for your Oxfords, consider looking for a pair with a fun detail like the colored soles on AerGO by Aerosoles Skip to My Lous. Aren't they cheery? They'll definitely be getting lots of play this holiday season! And their cushy, ultra light soles have a little something to do with that too. If I'm brave enough to take on Black Friday again, I'm fairly certain I'll be turning to my Oxfords. Just sayin'.
So, remember, party frocks aren't the only pieces you need to focus on this holiday season. Don't forget to get your comfy-chic holiday wardrobe ready too!
