Happy Sunday! I wanted to do a quick recap and answer some of your questions on these posts from my Instagram. I kept trying on & debating over this LOFT coat but decided to return it in the end. The pretty soft taupe & gray color scheme was the primary draw for me – it fits right in with my most-worn hues and would be very easy to pair. Ultimately I already splurged on another coat this year so want to give that one all the wear it can get. On another note, I’ve been in love with my Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots (last posted here) which get wear aplenty – enough to compel me to get the Highland heeled rendition. The chunky heels are Nick-approved; they’re stable and don’t get stuck in sidewalk cracks, so I can better keep up with his pace!
Yesterday I enjoyed one of my favorite holiday traditions with my girlfriends – afternoon tea at the Taj! We usually spend well over three hours there, getting buzzed on caffeine and treats while exchanging gifts. I ended up getting this BR skirt during a recent sale and really like it for festive occasions. My usual size was sold out both online and in stores so I went a size up (it fits but I’d prefer a little more fitted/shorter for a fun piece), however I saw they just restocked xxsp! It goes with so many tops, even my pajama dress which I was wearing before getting ready, ha! I’d recommend this comfy shirtdress for lounging at home and possibly outside (I’m definitely guilty of donning PJs in public)…it’s a cozy, soft cotton flannel which never fails to get me in a Christmasy mood!
Below, I’m so bummed that this shirt sold out of small sizes within a matter of days. I’m a sucker for drapey, wrap-style shirts, and this knit one was love at first wear. I have seen random sizes pop back in stock, so it doesn’t hurt to bookmark & check back if you really wanted it.
I only get to see my younger brothers once or twice a year so miss them dearly. Whenever together, we love to bake treats then gorge on them over Pixar movie marathons. The last time I went back to my parents’ house, I left my clothes strewn about everywhere which apparently left quite the impression on my brothers! It inspired these sugar cookies of my outfits, which I almost couldn’t bear to eat.
Last but not least, I’ve gotten more messages about the wrapping paper below…they’re all by Sugar Paper brand from good ole’ Target! Sugar Paper makes the cutest gift wrap & packaging, sure to be appreciated by your gift recipient (or at least will look pretty under the tree)!
