Christmas edition

Christmas dressing is all about sparkle, shimmer and shine, am I right? Normally, Christmas isn’t a dressy affair at my house (I mean, we do live in the Midwest), but sometimes I feel like dressing up a little, even if my family are the only ones to see it. So consider this the Christmas edition of my outfit. Here’s the breakdown:

Cardigan: American Eagle via TJ Maxx
Dress: Target via Goodwill
Tights: Kohl’s
Heels: Franco Sarto via Goodwill
Belt: Garage sale
Earrings: Christmas gift
Bracelet: Nadri (c/o Vogue and QVC) 

I know I’ve been carrying my new Brahmin bag lately, but I also received another package during Christmas break that I wanted to save especially for Christmas day: this bracelet! It’s delicate and intricate, something I don’t normally go for in jewelry. However, I found the bracelet was a welcome change from the usual jewelry I’m drawn to, and I know I’ll be pairing it with more and more outfits throughout the year (even when it’s not Christmas).

Looking back on the year

A merry Christmas, indeed
