Growing up, I wore all the Santa earrings, sequin and puffy paint sweatshirts, and rocked some light-up reindeer antler headbands. You could say I was totally extra. As a single adult, I may not have felt quite as festive around the holidays. Now that I have kiddos, I feel I have no choice but to revisit my sense of extra come Christmas.
I’ve found a few fun, yet subtle (ish) holiday items to incorporate into your everyday style. You won’t find any puffy painted sweatshirts over here, sadly. From a $6 holly headband, $12 chunky knit Santa hat or a cozy sweatshirt, any of these items are sure to make spirits bright.
