Sew Cute Holiday: Christmas Eve OOTD

Merry Christmas everyone! Today I'm sharing my family's Christmas Eve traditions plus what I wore to Christmas Eve dinner. 

For a while, every Christmas Eve we go out to a nice dinner with my immediate family and my Aunt. We have been going to a Brazilian steakhouse for a while and it is always so delicious! We dine on the endless salad bar (which is so good), yummy cheesey rolls, lots of steak and meats, plus some sides. It is one of my favorite meals of the whole year, second favorite to what we eat on Christmas day! We also got a pitcher of white sangria which was to die for. 

After dinner we come back to our house and open presents. We always change into our comfy Christmas pajamas to open presents. When we were growing up we would open presents from Mom and Dad on Christmas Eve, then presents from Santa on Christmas Day. It's fun because the excitement always lasted over the two full days. 

Once presents are over we usually watch a Christmas movie until we fall asleep. Some of my favorite Christmas movies include: Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, The Grinch, Charlie Brown Christmas, and White Christmas. 

As for my outfit, I have been saving this Altar'd State dress for a special occasion and I thought it would be adorable to wear for Christmas! I love the black lace and the overall silhouette of the dress. It fits like a glove, which is hard to come by, and is super flattering. The back has an interesting cut out design and the front has a v-neckline. 

To add a pop of color I paired the dress with a red maroon tight. I love brining color to a black look through colorful tights. For some sparkle I added my new glitter acrylic monogram necklace from Baublebar and a pair of glittery square studs from Kate Spade. To complete the look, of course, I wore a KJP Vickers Bow bracelet, Alex and Ani bangles, and my Daniel Wellington watch. My bag from Cambridge Satchel Company added an extra pop of red for even more holiday cheer.
