Last Minute Outfit Ideas for the Holidays



The holidays are right around the corner and if you’re anything like myself you’re just beginning to think about what you’re going to wear this weekend. For my fellow fashionista-procrastinators, putting off figuring out what you’re going to wear for the holidays leave no option but to throw an outfit together with what is already in your closet. Because it is too late to order anything online and Lord knows I’m not going to step foot inside a mall this close to the holidays. Talk about a shopping nightmare.
