I hope those who celebrate had a very merry Christmas! We’re on the West coast with family, and I’m thrilled that my grandparents were able to come visit the Nelson residence. They don’t speak the same language at all, but communicate through good cooking and warm hugs : ) I had this outfit on for some festivities with friends, but ended up swapping bare legs for black tights and booties since it was so chilly! The feather-like fringe on this skirt makes it instantly party-ready (see other pairing ideas here and here), but can be dressed down a bit with neutrals. I hoisted the length up for nighttime by folding the wide waistband over – just make sure to remove the tag from the inner back.
Most retailers snapped into clearance mode the moment Christmas was over… almost everything in my look here is on sale! Ann Taylor is having a big promo which includes both my jacket (also worn here) and necklace. I’ve been reaching for this piece quite a bit; it has a good weightiness to it, and I like the crystal aspect for pairing since it takes on whatever color you’re wearing underneath. Also for fellow lovers of Stila sun bronzer (I’m wearing it here), I stumbled across a few in the sale section of Sephora w/ EXTRA20 for another 20% off. I stocked up but am so sad to see yet another favorite being discontinued! I guess many users didn’t like the red/orange tint, which I prefer to just brown for a warmer look.
I love seeing everyone’s tree styles, and mama Nelson’s never disappoints decked out in pearls and poinsettias. Don’t worry, Misty knows not to snack on them! I got a few questions on IG about her PJs, but it’s actually just a roomy human flannel shirt ; ) My comfy PJ Salvage sleepshirt however is from this post and just went on sale!
I snapped this Instagram before we left Boston, from a small holiday gathering at our place. The Cheers glasses are from my post here and now also on sale! The antler straws were found in the dollar bins of good ole’ Target.
PS – I also wanted to mention my leopard heels in this outfit are from years ago, but got restocked earlier this season starting in sz 4! I love the slightly lower heel and “normal” leopard print. They do run big though per the listing, so I’d echo trying half a size down.
