I absolutely love brainstorming holiday outfits this time of year. I don't usually have a lot of formal events on the calendar - but instead quiet and cozy events with friends and family that call for casual but festive attire. I love to have the classics on hand this time of year to mix and match into festive outfits. A fun pom pom sweater, a gorgeous plaid top, anything bright red - like this coat or a scarf would do - and a pair of classic shoes like these penny loafers make for the perfect festive wardrobe mixers. Just having a few festive pieces on hand can really make it easy to pull together holiday looks.
In other news, I finally pulled the trigger on the cropped boot cut jeans that I had been eyeing all fall. This trend may not be for everyone, but I love that it's something a little different from my standard of skinny or straight legged jeans. And since I'm a little on the short side I have a tough time pulling off the flare jeans without wearing sky-high heels. So this is a fun middle ground. Have you tried this trend yet? Would you?
