Tasseled

I was recently reminded that these two weeks between Thanksgiving break and Christmas break are the fastest days of the entire year. I’m currently experiencing that rush, as I can hardly believe that today is Thursday! A week from now, the finals studying will commence. Here’s the breakdown:

Tee: Goodwill
Blouse (underneath): Ann Taylor LOFT via Garage Sale
Blazer: Old Navy
Jeans: Elle via Kohl’s
Boots: Target
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Necklaces: Garage sale
Earrings: H&M
Coat: DKNY Jeans 

A little velvet, a little black-and-white pattern plus some stripes? What more could a girl want in an outfit? This velvet blazer tends to get pulled out of my closet only around Christmastime; velvet any other time of the year just doesn’t seem appropriate. My favorite part of the outfit, though, are my tassel earrings; these are going to be my staple throughout the holiday season.

Hello, holidays!
