Merry Christmas, Darlings!
I hope you are all successfully completing your Christmas shopping and eating massive amounts of peppermint bark. If you’re anything like me, you are finally enjoying the season in all of its splendor. Finals are finished, Christmas programs have been completed and you actually have a week off work. (No 5:00 AM wake-ups for a week, praise the Sweet Lord!)
I wore this outfit the other day and I figured it may be useful in the holiday outfit inspiration department. I typically always opt for something sequin covered, or at the very least shimmery or sparkly, because I love being ultra-festive. However, this day I decided to go for the “cool and sophisticated” vibe, although I’m still indecisive as to whether that’s a thing or not.
So we’ll call it a “classic holiday outfit.” Turtlenecks and high-waisted skirts always give off that effortless, yet still “put together” vibe that we all so desire. Recently I’ve decided that turtlenecks are not only a staple but an absolute necessity for a woman living in Michigan…which happens to be in close proximity to Canada (the world’s frozen tundra…Kidding).
I decided to pair this wine colored turtleneck with my checked, navy high-waisted skirt. I then added my nude stilettos and my navy, snakeskin Kate Spade purse. When going for the sleek, sophisticated look, I feel that it is always better to sport slick hair, as it goes with the overall aesthetic.
Holiday outfits don’t always have to be sparkly to be fun!
