Y’all, it is hot. Not only is it hot, but it is humid… and it is December 17th, 2021. All over the country, people are experiencing cooler climate and snow. Now, I am not necessarily asking for a “winter wonderland” experience… because snow in East Texas has resulted into serious issues (Snowmadegon 2021). But, I would like to experience SOME cooler weather.
Yes, I know when it EVENTUALLY gets cooler outside, someone is going to say “Look Kelly, now it is cold!” I get that, and I am looking forward to that.
Especially with all of the holiday get-togethers, people are in the Christmas spirit and want to celebrate. We love the sweaters (ugly and beautiful), and it is fun to dress up! However, it is just to dang hot too wear thick wool sweaters. So, what can you do?
Holiday Attire East Texas Suggestions
Think Holiday Colors
Instead of wearing thick holiday sweaters, try using items in your closet that are holiday colors. Red, green, white, blue, gold, silver, etc. Mix and match in order to have a holiday color scheme. Maybe green shorts, and a red shirt? Silver top and blue pants?
It has taken me 10 years to come to the realization…. Holiday wear is not just sweaters. There are also holiday t-shirts. The designs have gotten a lot more creative over the years, but a t-shirt is a great way to show your spirit, while keeping cool.
Holiday pins, headbands, earrings, bracelets, shoes, ties, socks… these can give you some holiday flair, but without the bulk.
Going to a holiday party, and need to bring an appetizer or dessert? Dress comfortably, and then make sure your food item is on a holiday plate. Don’t have a holiday plate? Go with white, red, green, etc. You can even make your food item holiday themed (stocking sugar cookies, snowman crackers, etc…)
