Quick Chic Outfits

One fun thing about being home for the holidays is that my closet triples in size thanks to my mom and sister. This outfit was a spur of the moment, we are leaving the house, make yourself presentable as soon as possible, outfit. It was a quick chic outfit. When I have to quickly put together an outfit, I always try to rely on silhouettes and pairings that already work for me.

I borrowed this blazer from my sister and I already tried convincing her to let me take it back to college with me. It looks pulled together because of the shape, but not too stiff because it is a soft fabric. These boots are very old, but I haven’t worn them yet this season, so I dug them out of a dark corner of my closet and had a reunion.

Home for Christmas

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, I am usually playing carols before thanksgiving, and my mom scolds me for it every time.  This year was different for me, since I was away at school, I did not have the luxury to go downstairs every day and have my morning coffee in Christmas tree light.  This made the days leading up to now a bit less festive, so now that I am at home, I am fully embracing the season. Now I fully understand the saying “Home for Christmas.”

I wore this outfit out Christmas shopping with my sister!  I don’t think you can go wrong with a fair isle sweater in December. It is the perfect way to say the Holidays are here. I just love how festive they are! Funny story with my sweater, it is the children’s brand Carter’s. I’m pretty sure it is over 12 years old. I used to wear this sweater as a little girl, and I rediscovered it a few years ago. Thankfully it still fits! This is just another example to never strictly follow sizes when shopping.
