First off… Merry Christmas! I hope you had a happy and relaxing holiday filled with lots of good food and family/friends. Kevin and I had a very quiet Christmas with my parents and brother, which was just what I needed. It was awesome having a few days off too. Next up? New Years Eve!

If you live on the East Coast, you’ve probably been [guiltily] enjoying this recent spell of warm weather like I have (on Christmas day it was warmer in Boston than in California where my in-laws live). I know this is a result of global warming – and we will probably pay for it with another horrific winter this year – but it’s hard not to enjoy it right now. Especially when it means I can comfortably be outside with bare legs and a skirt! The jacket in this post is actually overkill with a chunky turtleneck underneath, but I love the color combination of light gray and dusty pink. It’s one of my all-time favorite pairings and it works especially well you’re working with nice heathered wools and soft textures. I like the oversized sweater and skirt look (it’s one of I’ve been rocking quite a lot recently) – it feels like a good balance between casual and dressy, and it’s super comfortable. And these boots! I love them so much. I’m always a little hesitant when it comes to wearing heeled over-the-knee boots, since they can easily take your outfit into trampy territory. But I think they work beautifully when the rest of the outfit is kept casual and simple. I really like the stretchy suede on these – they’re very similar to the Stuart Weitzman boots, but a little more affordable (I actually got them from Amazon when they were on sale, so keep an eye out on any future deals!).

Anyways, I’ll be back with another post soon! I think one of my goals for 2016 will be to update the blog more frequently and revamp things a little.

Wow, so December is speeding right on by! Hanukkah just started and Christmas is coming soon – which means I desperately need to get my act together and buy gifts for everyone. Last weekend I was at least able to pick up a Christmas tree and I spent Sunday night decorating it while Kevin watched football on the couch (haha). ‘Tis the season, I guess! Anyways, today’s post is a collaboration with Old Navy to feature some of the super affordable and cozy pieces for winter. I was challenged to try styling some culottes, and I was definitely up for it when I saw these cute printed shorts. Totally not a typical choice for December, but the weather was unseasonably warm (no jacket required) and I layered with a tunic and oversized sweater. I topped the outfit with a vibrant plaid scarf (only $9… what?!) – mixing prints and textures so the overall look is a little funky/crazy. Sometimes I’m unpredictable like that! The great thing about Old Navy is the fact you can pick up a few cozy sweaters and on-trend accessories (they have the best scarves!) without breaking the bank. And saving a little money is definitely something to be thankful for during the holidays, right? Check out the links below to shop the outfit!

I hope everyone had a great holiday and got to enjoy a few extra days off! I can’t believe December starts tomorrow… where has this year gone?! Crazy, crazy. Anyways, this outfit is one of my favorite neutral combos: black and gray. You really can’t go wrong with black and gray (especially when you have an insanely colorful mural to add some background interest…). I adore color, but I wear more black, gray and white than anything else. For extra warmth, this comfy shawl-collared wrap coat pairs nicely with a blush pink hat (both of which are on sale!) and add a little contrast to the overall look.

Well, I’m off to New York tomorrow for work, but I have more outfit posts coming soon – plus plenty of holiday shopping ideas!
