December is officially the busiest month of the year. I swear. Hope you’ve had a good week! Today’s outfit is kind of an experiment in holiday/winter layering (and of course, I took these photos on an unseasonably warm day a few weeks ago…). I wanted to play around with mixing unexpected textures: flannel, sequins, wool, haircalf leather – and I ended up really liking all the variations of this combo. I layered my sweater over this plaid flannel (a new favorite from J.Crew), draped it over my shoulders and tied it around my waist for a few shots, too. Since there are so many prints, textures and silhouettes happening here, I wanted to anchor the outfit with pieces in similar shades of gray and silver – from top to bottom (sweater + skirt + pumps). It helps balance the overall look and makes the contrasting colors even more vibrant. And personally, I love the unusual mix of a casual plaid flannel with a shiny disco ball mini. Possible contender for a holiday party outfit? We’ll see…
Have a happy weekend!
