Okay, this may be one of my favorite holiday looks to date. Have you guys noticed that I haven’t worn a single holiday dress yet on here? It’s because I haven’t purchased one! I’ve been way more into the cute tops and pants or blouses and skirts.
This top is pretty much everything with the Stewart plaid and bow on the back.
Also, I have to make a note about my hair. I usually don’t put my hair up when it’s straight because it doesn’t “stick” in the bun. That’s why I have all the flyaways! Normally I need a little bit more texture for a great bun.
But with this top, a bun is definitely necessary. Otherwise, the pretty bow (which is the best part of the top) gets covered up!
I also got this trench coat a few months ago. I had spent an afternoon trying on Burberry trench coats. I had basically made up my mind that I was going to splurge on one. But then when I went to try them on, I couldn’t find one that I was completely happy with. And for nearly $2,000, I want to really love a coat, you know? I ended up getting the trench coat when it was 40% off (it’s full price now, but I’ll keep my eye out and let you know if it goes on sale UPDATE: it is 40% off right now with “THANKU” at checkout.). It’s perfect, and for the price, I’m way in love with it. From the reviews, it seems like the sizing has changed year to year, but I found it to run a little on the big side.
The shirt itself is the showstopper, and I didn’t want my jewelry to distract. I recently found these bow earrings that I’ve had for years and (omg) are still available! I kind of thought the double bow thing would be too crazy but went for it anyway because, well, I love bows.
My Jet Set Candy charm bracelet is always a go-to of mine. It’s a great conversation starter too, which I so appreciate when I’m feeling awkward at parties! I’ve been adding charms with pretty much every trip I take!
Another view of the back of the top. I mean, how could I resist!!!
