It can be tempting to wear my ugly christmas sweater, that reads “Beary Christmas” with cute bears frolicking in the snow. At this point, my family has seen my full collection of sweaters and it safe to say, I’ve played it out. Lately, I’ve trying to add back femininity to my outfits. This happens to be once a season when I get gridlocked in shorts or jeans. Both of which I adore, but you can’t deny the fresh perspective a more thought out look can offer your mood. I notice the more time I spend putting together an outfit, the better I feel at the party.
I wanted a look that felt collegiate yet feminine. When you get the layering right on an outfit, it can’t be beat. I tried on about 10 sweaters before landing on this one. I used a tank top button up shirt for the third layer.
If you want to feel dressy in the winter, I highly suggest getting a lace dress and go for a longer length. You can layer it under trenches, chunky knit sweaters, leather jackets, shrugs basically any jacket..you get it.
What do you guys think of the new grey locks?
I think this outfit could work with friends or at a work party. The back of this dress touches at mid knee so you don’t have to feel self conscious about pulling it down all night. Plus, you’re wearing a collared shirt, so like you could possibly mess with you?!
I hear these “purse poms” are out for next year. I say, who cares. How can they possibly say we only get one season with these cute fur balls?!
I’m embarrassed to say where I got this pea coat. I’m that person who realizes they need a coat about the last 2 months of the cold season, when everything is sold out. I did it this season too. I had to make a calendar invite for 7 am, 1 week ago to search online for a camel pea coat. Behold I waited way too long again and ended up paying way too much. Don’t be like me and know what you want early on, or wait until end of season when the prices drop.
What are you guys wearing to your holiday functions? Are you going for patterns, red and green or a little sparkle?
