Holiday Fashions for Less From Sears

Things I learned while crafting this post: I can’t take a good picture to save my life. There isn’t a single room in our house that has decent lighting. Don’t take “fashion” pictures at 8pm when you are tired, all your makeup has worn off and your hair is totally flat. In other words, there is no danger of me ever turning The Diaper Diaries into a fashion blog.

BUT when you are asked to head to Sears and purchase “holiday looks”, you don’t say no despite your photgraphical challenges. Because there is nothing I love more than a shopping challenge. So this weekend armed with $75 and my favorite fashionista (Lily) I ventured to Sears to see what I could put together.

Here are my top ten favorite holiday outfits from Sears compared to splurges I could have gotten elsewhere.

  1.   ok so this really isn’t a “holiday outfit” but I wore it to the Kindergarten Christmas party today with a green scarf (that didn’t make the picture because it has chocolate all over it #occupationalhazard) and thought I looked rather elf like. But I love that I can wear it all year long. {Shirt}
  2. jcrew oh look. Almost the same shirt. For over double the price. SCORE!! {Shirt}
  3. again, not holiday per se, but this just makes me want to snuggle by a fire. I think it would be perfect for traveling by car or by air. Or for a family Christmas. {Sweater}
  4. cardigan Here is a similar look that is quite the splurge. {Sweater}
  5. I have been dying to get a maxi skirt for quite some time. But haven’t really found one I love. This one I spotted and immediately grabbed hold of. I am not sure what to put on the top. Ideas? {Skirt}
  6. maxiskirt I kind of dig the stripes on this much pricier version, but I am loving the brown in mine much more. {Skirt}
  7. For quite some time I have wanted to get a sequined tank. I tried on several at Sears but this one won out. I am not sure I love it with jeans. Would black pants just be too black? I think this is the perfect tank for New Year’s Eve. {Tank}
  8. sequin See I am enjoying it with the skinny black pants. But I am not enjoying this price. {Tank}
  9. And now is the point where I realize there are supposed to be 10 things, but I only have 8.
  10. And now is the point where you forgive me.
    Please check out Sears for all your holiday fashion needs. I think you will be pleasantly surprised by what you find!

I received a gift card to purchase holiday styles from Sears as part of the Glam Trendsetter Program. The opinions expressed herein are those of the author and are not indicative of the opinions or positions of Sears. This post is linked up to Top Ten Tuesday at Oh Amanda!


  1. I love them. And you are adorable w/ or w/o a great photo.

    I think black pants w/the sequins are good. You can’t have too much black. ;)

  2. I love that tank! (though the link actually goes to the maxi skirt right now…) I have a copper colored sequined tank that I’ve had since well before babies. I still get compliments when I wear that thing. :)

  3. I think the tank would look better with bootcut or straight leg jeans and heels. Cute outfits!

    Ditto on what Nicole said. That glitter tank is my favorite outfit!

  5. I just bought a similar sequined tank for the holidays and love it! I was wondering too what to pair it with, but think both jeans or black skinnies would be great. Loved this post! :)
