Well it’s that time of year again! The holidays are quickly approaching and I’ve had some inquiries lately on how to layer to keep warm while still looking festive and not too casual. The above look is perfect for just that! I paired a flounce sleeve striped top along with my black, faux fur vest (both from Talbots). I decided to wear a festive green pant with a tone on tone burgundy and rose statement necklace. This pairing helps brighten and bring holiday cheer to the look. I couldn’t resist wearing my favorite over-the-knee boots because they’re lined and so warm!
For an extra layer I tossed on my go-to blanket scarf. See, you can mix these two patterns without it being too over the top. It works because stripes is a neutral pattern.
Lets talk traditions for a moment. What are you in charge of when it comes to Thanksgiving and what is your favorite Christmas or other holiday tradition? I am always in charge of the mashed potatoes and stirring the gravy (pretty easy job, huh)?. My favorite Christmas tradition that I am now sharing with my daughter, Harper is making candy cane cookies from scratch just like my mom used to do with me. Love you, Mom!!
Here’s a glimpse into our little home’s Christmas decor. It’s a work in progress and most of it was designed by my 5 year old daughter :). I love my pallet wood art that my Dad made to create a warm and cozy setting…still looking for a great spot to hang some of them.
I hope all of you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with either your family or framily! Hope to hear from you!
Your Faithful Dreamer,
