The final few days before Christmas are always crazy ones for me. They involve hectic, hurried trips to the mall (along with the rest of Dallas), wrapping paper malfunctions, sugar overdoses and a good dose of personal pep talks to keep me powering through. Fun and high-energy, for sure, but definitely crazy.
So you can bet my wardrobe as of late has been focused on one thing… comfort! I’ve always envied those pictures of Blair Waldorf strutting around Manhattan with ten shopping bags in tow, but for some reason I can’t reconcile lots of walking and stilettos. Am I the only one? Luckily, with all of the cozy layers available to us during winter, it’s easy to pull together a look that is as cute as it is practical!
SCARF Fringe Scarf ($30) | VEST J.Crew Excursion Vest (30% off w/ code HOLIDAY) | BAG Chloé Marcie Mini Satchel | SWEATER Grey Pullover (old, similar linked) | JEANS Black Jeans | BOOTS Derby Riding Boots (25% off and available in most sizes) | EARRINGS Pearl Studs | RING Delicate Pave Ring
I came across this crazy scarf at H&M, and it immediately put a smile on my face. In the recent blanket scarf craze, I feel like classic, cozy scarves have been kicked to the curb. This one is here to compete, though, and it reminded me of how much I love classic outerwear. The colors, textures and detailing are all so unique – for some reason it looks to me like it came straight out of a Ralph Lauren catalogue!
Paired with my go-to J.Crew vest and trusty riding boots (which previously sold out but are back in stock at 25% off!!!) this look was perfect for an afternoon of Christmas errands! I’m thinking that today things will finally start to slow down… but then again, I always say that… :)
Hoping your keeping your sanity with a smile on your face this week! We’re all in the same boat, but what a FUN one to be in. So thankful for that tiny baby in a manger all those years ago, and that the world celebrates Him this season!
Love from Texas,
