I can’t believe Christmas is a week away! My parents are coming to visit later this week and we have lots of fun holiday activities planned.
When it comes to my personal style for holiday festivities I like to step outside the box (no surprise there) and go with more unexpected color ways and fabrics. Classic red will always been in style, but why not take a walk on the edgier side?
This faux fur sleeved sweater is a play off of a Sally LaPointe piece, but ethically-friendly and a fraction of the cost. It looks just as fabulous dressed down – I wore it with leggings and Nike’s to run errands last weekend – and is uber comfortable.
Because of its oversized silhouette I opted to tuck in a corner right where the ruffle began on my skirt for some visual contrast. You may remember this skirt from over the summer. It’s one of those tried-and-true pieces that fits all seasons and occasions thanks to its fabric content and flattering shape. A fabulous investment then, it’s now 70% off!
And oh, don’t even get me started on these boots. The minute I saw them I died and went to sartorial heaven, patiently stalking them until they went on sale. I scored them on Black Friday, but they are now even more discounted and come in pink and gold as well. I seriously might need to get the taller gold version too.
What I love about a spunky boot for holiday parties and events is that it’s more comfortable (i.e. warmer) and plays up an outfit so much more than a classic pump or high heeled sandal. In an effort to never be predictable, I just love the finished effect this more unusual choice has on an overall look, while still maintaining a holiday theme with the metallic leather.
