Cozy, Luxe Holiday Style with Monroe and Main (Plus a Giveaway!)

This is a Fashionista Event Opportunity, and is hosted by Still Blonde after all these YEARS and Modly Chic. Go pay them a visit, they’re fantastic!

This holiday season you can be sure you’re dressed for anything and everything with Monroe and Main’s versatile and stylish fashions. From a relaxed day of wrapping gifts to holiday party hopping, you can be sure to turn heads in timelessly elegant style! Monroe and Main is the industry leader in clothing that fits various body types in size 6-24 or S-3X, so you can be sure to find something that fits you and your style perfectly.

This year for the holidays, our plans are still up in the air, but no doubt there will be some travel involved. When Monroe and Main gave me the opportunity to choose a holiday outfit, I wanted something that would be comfortable for a variety of situations:traveling, a comfortable evening in with my husband, or attending a family holiday party.

I decided to start with the beautiful cashmere-blend Casmalia Sweater in an ivory color that’s a perfect winter white (but also totally wearable year-round). It’s something that would work just as well with leggings as it would with jeans or a fancy skirt. Next I chose the Sparkle Knit Ruana, a beautiful knit poncho-like piece woven with just a hint of sparkle that’s perfect for the holidays no matter where you are. And finally, I opted to go for comfort and snagged a pair of Muk Luk Angie Snowflake slippers… ideal for cold winter days or nights!

Cozy and luxe, but travel-ready too!

I threw together an easy look featuring these three pieces, and the best part about this look is that all I need to do is swap out the shoes for my cozy Muk Luk slippers and I’m ready for relaxing with the hubs. Or, conversely, I can laze around in the morning in this look, and toss on shoes and head out to a celebration. Either way, it’s a great look for the holidays!

With Thanksgiving already here, we’ve started our crazy holiday season, with both sides of the family wanting to see us this year. So we have our bags packed and are ready to hit the road! It was so easy to throw this outfit on and shuffle around the house in these toasty slippers while we got things together. And yes, even Trixie is ready!

Monroe and Main Winter 2015: Packed and Ready to Go!

I decided, since it’s the holidays and all, that I would go all out and wear my sparkle leggings. They accent the glitter in the Sparkle Knit Ruana (and in the Muk Luk slippers) perfectly. And since they’re black-based, they help balance me a little–you know how I am when it comes to black: the more the, uh, merrier. Plus, it makes it easier to toss on a variety of other shoes from my closet.

Of course, that would mean actually taking off my super cozy Muk Luk slippers, and since they’ve shown up at my door, I’ve practically lived in them! When we got that first snowfall last week, they were the perfect things to come home to and warm up in! They’re toasty warm, have thick padding on the bottom, and my feet don’t feel like ice cubes when I’m wandering around the house. Plus, they’re just beautiful!

Monroe and Main Winter 2015: Coziest Slippers Ever

Moving up to the top, I threw a black cropped top under the cashmere-blend sweater so that I had an extra layer, but one that wouldn’t bunch up all wonky. The sweater is a slightly lighter weight, so an extra layer is definitely helpful (especially since I’m always cold), but the thinner knit is nice for layering up too. Of course, I topped it with the Sparkle Knit Ruana, which can be worn like a standard poncho, or wrapped for a luxe-looking layer. And there’s nothing wrong with looking luxe even if you’re relaxing around the house (or running around like a madwoman getting ready to leave)!

Monroe and Main Winter 2015: Cozy and Luxe Wrap

While I could have showed you a ton of different ways to spice up this look for all different kinds of holiday parties, I figured one look would suffice. I swapped out the slippers for a pair of teal booties and tossed my grey jacket on to head out the door. Instead of packing my slippers, I left them on top of my bag so I could easily grab them to slip on wherever we end up for the holidays.

Monroe and Main Winter 2015: Safe Travels!

Safe travels, however far you’re going, to you and your family as we head into the holiday season! May your celebrations be bright and merry, and your home be filled with warmth and love.
