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.
