For the past three days, I’ve had all electronics and distractions stuffed in my bag and have allowed my family and the Christmas holiday to have my full attention. I may have turned my computer on once during the entire weekend, just to check the occasional email. I must say that it felt nice to get a break from my computer; I thought I’d never admit that in my lifetime. Here’s the breakdown:
Blazer: Old Navy
Turtleneck: Banana Republic via Goodwill
Beaded Tank: Ann Taylor via Garage sale
Pants: Lauren Ralph Lauren via Garage sale
Flats: American Eagle
Bag: Brahmin (c/o)
Despite not having the traditional white Christmas, I decided to get a little festive, anyway. I paired my ever-present-on-Christmas-Eve beaded tank (which weighs about 10 ten pounds) with something a little unusual for me: velvet. While I’m not necessarily a velvet girl, I couldn’t help but feel a little luxe lounging in the pants all day with my cozy merino wool turtleneck. Before heading to a Christmas Eve service, I added a little more pizzaz with the beaded tank and a velvet blazer on top. Merry Christmas (Eve), indeed!
