there is a delicate balance between wanting your family to look cute (aka, not homeless) on a regular basis and not going broke. it gets especially tricky around the holidays with 100 other things to spend money on and just as many events and outings to attend.
most years for the kids holiday attire, i wait until the last minute and try to piece clearance items together. this rarely works out well. so, this year i’ve decided to buy each of the kids one versatile item that can be styled different ways with clothing they already have in their closet…. and maybe an accessory or two.

NO. 2 —> christmas card PICTURES: dress, orange cardi (h&m), clogs (hand-me-downs), tights. (slightly undecided on this look for pictures, but it will work for something!)
2 down, 2 to go; but it feels good to scratch some shopping off my holiday to do list!
how do you keep your family looking cute while stretching your budget? we’d love to hear in the comments!
