The Fab Collab Celebrates Christmas at 40 Plus

 Holiday Collaboration for 4 Generations.

Holiday Styles for 4 Generations From Sherry’s Perspective

Holiday Collaboration for 4 Generations.

It’s that time again when Sherry, from Petite Over 40, is joining us in a Fab Collab. This time we’re going to take you back to our holiday memories and the clothing we wore for the occasion.

I hope you’ll check in each day to join the party! And be sure to share your own Christmas fashion memories—the good and the bad—in the comments below or on our Facebook pages. Pictures welcome! 🙂

A Preview of Sherry’s Story about her Christmas Picture Memories

We are not a fancy people, my family. We come from coal miners, farmers, and rugged immigrants who got their hands dirty doing jobs and dealing with things I can’t imagine today.

Even though Christmas has always been informal in my family, I don’t think of v-neck sweaters, flannel, or denim when I think about Christmas style. The images that come to my mind are something out of a Bing Crosby movie. (And Sherry doesn’t mean a sequined bathing suit—ha ha)

Holiday Collaboration for 4 Generations.

Make sure to click over to Sherry’s blog to read the whole story and see many more fun photos and the details of her present day outfit! She’s even including her parents in the present day part of the styling!!

Feel free to share your Holiday memories—it makes my day to hear other people’s stories! 

And Sherry would love it if you followed her by subscribing to her emails, on  Bloglovin‘ or on Facebook! She has an interesting spin on interpreting her outfits throughout the decades. Even when we think we’ve come up with a new style or trend, there’s usually a past decade to which it relates!

I see a ton of bloggers wearing red plaid for a holiday look. Is it your go-to at Christmas?

There are affiliate links in this post. What this means is that when you click on a linked item, I receive a couple of cents. Those couple of cents can certainly add up! So I appreciate it if you keep clicking to help support Jodie’s Touch of Style!

Since Sherry was wearing a beautiful red, plaid skirt, I thought it’d be fun to find other plaid pieces: Tell me those shoes aren’t to die for (they even have memory foam in them)?

  • It isn’t often that I shoot for a post ends up being something I wear in real life (my blog is my fairy tale dress-up land) but this Christmas, as it happens, I really did wear the outfit I shared for my Christmas Memories Continued post. Well, part of it anyways. I wore my ruffled plaid skirt with a B&W Striped Cropped Knit top for our Christmas Eve family dinner, so that’d be yes, plaid turned out to be my go-to 🙂 xoxo

      I think it’s fun to get ideas from the blog, even if they aren’t what you’d normally wear!
      I see plaid all the time for Christmas…at least here in Colorado, so maybe that’s why I don’t wear it much!

  • I am loving all this plaid! Hope you had a great holiday!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Laura!!
      We had a fun time in Vegas—I hope yours was special too!
      And happy new year!!

  • PetiteOver40

    You are THE BEST, Jodie! How thankful I am for you this Christmas (and everyday)! Thank you for boosting my post in such a great way!!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks but I think you’re wrong—you’re the best, and I’m just trying to keep up with you 🙂

  • I will be popping over to the lovely Sherry’s blog. Good to see her back. Funnily enough, thinking about Christmas memories always takes me back to my childhood. I remember listening to the Bay City Rollers album at around 4am with headphones of course! I was so over the moon with that album!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t it amazing how certain times and events bring back a glimpse of the past, Laurie?? I have to admit though I don’t think I know that album? I’ll have to google it!
      And what the heck were you doing up at 4 am? Ha ha!!

  • Lovely festive looks and loving the plaid!

    Treats and Trends

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Plaid really is a fun print!! I’m thinking I might have to buy those plaid flats—aren’t they the cutest?
      Thanks for the love, Jamie!

  • Beautiful, heartwarming family pictures! Style is not nearly as important as having loving and beloved people celebrating with us! Though style is a great fun, of course. 🙂

    Sending warmest holiday wishes! Thank you for being a part of Midlife Fun!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You hit the nail on the head Natalia!!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  • Very nice! I will have to hear the rest of the story. I love red plaid and need to take it out of my closet! Love the red plaid and is your skirt a gold jacquard? So pretty Jodie!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      My skirt is not jacquard, Jess—it’s a lightweight silk with sequins!! (You’ll see some better photos of it tomorrow!!)

  • Such a fun post! Loving the photos and of course the plaid.

      I do think it’s so fun to look back at our memories from the past!!!

  • Merry Christmas week! Holiday plaid is a classic! The red shade is so pretty & festive

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It really is, isn’t it, Michelle!!
      And back at you with the holiday wishes!! 🙂

  • Judy Gramith

    Ah the holiday plaid! There has to be some connection to European roots ( for some of us) since I see the popularity of holiday tartan in postings of many bloggers from across the Atlantic!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You’re so right—I do see it a ton on others!!
      I have so little of it in my closet—but my mom certainly isn’t lacking—I’ll just steal a couple pieces from her..ha ha!
      (or i’ll buy those cute flats I linked to—they are just calling my name!)

  • Love those pictures! Especially the one on the far right. I’m clicking on all of your links because I have no plaid!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      It’s funny, because I don’t have a ton of plaid in my closet either!! But my husband does…so maybe I’ll just “borrow” his—ha ha!
      Except those flats—I’m in love with those!!

  • Too funny! I have several skirts so darn close to Sherry’s. Off to read the story…

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It’s such a statement piece, isn’t it Suzanne??
      BTW, I’m wearing my olive green maxi from you tonight for our bookclub holiday party—thanks again for such a fabulous piece!!

      • Awesome! Take some photos will you? : )

        • Jodie Filogomo


  • I love a plaid skirt! And now I go reading! Bye bye
