Mom and Toddler Christmas Style

This year, Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood asked me to be a part of a special mommy and child Christmas post with a few other bloggers. Of course I agreed; you know there's no arm-twisting needed for me to coordinate with Jona and put him in a blog post.

Be sure to check out all the blogs below to see more of them and their adorable families. Of course I love seeing beautiful, professional family photos, but I think these real-life, unposed glimpses into real life are even more precious.

ADA of Elegance and Mommyhood: "This was the day we took a million pictures. If you have a very active toddler you understand. Vivian and I still managed to dress up in red and white and take some cute Holiday snapshots among the huge bunch. From myself, my daughter Vivian and her favorite doll we wish you Happy Holidays and a very Merry Christmas!"
BROOKE of Pumps and Pushups: "Celebrating the holidays with these two is so very sweet. I love making the season magical for them and living through their excitement."

RACHEL of Threads for Thomas: "During the holidays, my family tends to keep our gatherings on the casual side. However, I still want us all to look put together, so a nice sweater is usually the solution.  I love dressing the twins in coordinating sweaters, and for me, a sweater dress is the perfect option."
ERICA of Pumps and Pushups: "This Christmas is extra special as it is the first one my husband, family and I will be celebrating with our brand new bundle of joy. Christmas has always been a favorite time of year for me and I am so excited to now have a little one of my own to share in the magic of the season!"

AMY of the Gifted Gabber: "Our after-church photo shoot resulted in a little impromptu porch decorating. My two little helpers had some unconventional decorating ideas, but we finally got things straight. My red plaid dress is a holiday favorite of mine from Old Navy. Little One's black plaid dress is also from Old Navy. Last Christmas season, we bought Scooter Britches' shimmery plaid dress one size up from Target and she has been able to enjoy it for one more holiday season."
SHEA of Shea Lennon: "I'm looking forward to a relaxing Christmas spent with family. Jona and I are ready to eat delicious food and open lots of presents in our comfy jeans and red plaid. Merry Christmas!"

Last week I talked about making everyday outfits a little more glam for the holidays. While I love the excuse to get dressed up, the reality is that for us, Christmas day itself is a pretty casual affair. No matter which side of the family we spend it with, we usually just hang out, chat, and eat.

Therefore, I like to wear something both comfortable and festive for our family Christmas. Jeans, stripes, and boots are a favorite, and my red plaid blanket scarf looks Christmasy and keeps me warm. And while I still can, I like to coordinate Jona with me as well. For him, I chose this red plaid shirt with jeans and gray sneakers.

On me: jacket: Loft (similar) | striped top: Ann Taylor Factory (similar) | denim leggings: Loft | blanket scarf: Target (similar) | boots: Crown Vintage (similar)
On Jona: plaid shirt: Gap via ThredUp (similar) | jeans: Gap | sneakers: Target
