Anyone else already listening to Christmas music? I tried to hold out until after Thanksgiving, but after finding a radio station last week that plays non-stop Christmas tunes, I decided it was acceptable. Since then, I start each day listening to Christmas music and drinking coffee out of my Santa mug. I know there is some rule that I should wait until after Thanksgiving, but it’s hard not to be festive when Christmas is everywhere I go. In my mind, the Christmas season started when Starbucks released their holiday cups!
This time of year, one of my favorite ways to feel festive is to add a little sparkle to my outfits. For the daytime, I look for pieces that have a hint of embellishment, and prefer to save the full sequined items for the evening. This turquoise sweater is embellished with gems just on the collar, and has a subtle sparkle perfect for daytime wear. To keep the look casual, you could pair the sweater with jeans and boots, but I decided to dress up and wear a skirt. This wool skirt comes in a few different colors, but I chose the winter white because the color feels festive, while still being wearable after the holidays. Also, the neutral tone makes it easy to style with most colors. The sweater is a steal at only $20.99 on sale, and the skirt is currently 40% off with the promo code HOLIDAY!
