The goal of this holiday outfit series is to offer you practical inspiration for your holiday outfits. If your family is like mine, Thanksgiving is not a formal affair. Day one of my holiday outfit series kicks off with one of my favorite casual outfits. It's perfect for the lady who has a family, like mine, that just takes the holidays easy, no dressing up required.

Now anyone who knows me will tell you I am NOT a sweatshirt person. I love to keep warm but I balk at going out in public in a baggy, oversized sweatshirt unless I am in my car and going through the Starbucks drive-thru. I am so glad that the fashion world finally heard my plea for something warm AND chic and answered that cry with these great graphic sweatshirts. I picked this one up at JCrew on sale in the spring but there are many great options out there. I especially love this American Eagle version with a sparkly ampersand and then of course you can find a bunch of options at Forever 21. Now if you're looking for something a little more plain but still refined enough for family time check out Boden's selection of bright and cheery sweatshirts. Add a hint of plaid, flannel shirt or a big blanket scarf, for another pop of holiday cheer. What I love about this outfit is that comfortable doesn't have to mean sloppy.
