Happy Tuesday! Today I’m teaming up with J.McLaughlin to share how I’m making merry at home and sticking to the classics this holiday season.

This look is a great option whether you’re headed to a holiday party or hosting one at your home. Tartan  is one of my favorite prints, especially during the holidays! I can still remember being little and my mom dressing me and my sisters in tartan print dresses for our Christmas card. It’s still one of my favorite prints, it’s a complete classic. Pair it with an embellished black or navy skirt, a beaded black clutch and a classic Christmas red lip to create a timeless and sophisticated holiday outfit.

I love to fill my home with classic Christmas decor and this year I went with snowy whites, a pop of red and fresh, evergreen garlands. But I think what brings the holiday spirit into my home the most are the classic Christmas songs that we all grew up listening to. I thought I would share with you my Christmas playlist that’s currently on repeat at my home!

  • David Archuleta, The Piano Guys and Pete Hollens – “Angels From The Realms of Glory”
  • Idina Menzel and Michael Buble – “Baby It’s Cold Outside”
  • Natalie Cole – “Caroling”
  • Nat King Cole – “The Christmas Song”
  • Amy Grant – “Breath of Heaven”
  • Natalie Cole – “Jingle Bells”
  • Michael Buble – “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow”
  • Brenda Lee – “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree”
  • Ella Fitzgerald – “Sleigh Ride”
  • Eartha Kitt – “Santa Baby”

I hope this inspires you to make merry at home! And if you’re looking for some classic pieces to add to your wardrobe this season, get 15% off full prices items today and tomorrow using code: MAKINGMERRY. Enjoy!!

  1. Hi, I recently discovered your blog and I love it! All of your pictures are beautiful :) Your Christmas playlist is so classic, I love Idina Menzel’s Christmas album. Have you tried Josh Groban’s holiday album? His vice is amazing with some of the classic songs.

  2. Such a lovely and perfect holiday pairing, Rach! I too love tartan during the Christmas season and it’s definitely a classic print. I love how you styled yours with that lovely skirt and bold red lip and nails. I also love your playlist songs, my all time favorite would have to be Brenda Lee’s Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”!

    I hope you have a lovely day, beauty!
