December Dressing


December dressing is all about making a statement while staying warm! Whether I’m wearing a chunky turtleneck sweater, a puffer vest, a bow-tied beanie, or a colorful coat, I always aim to incorporate a little bit of cozy chic into my outfits during December. Tis the season!


I found this Vince coat and this chunky Theory turtleneck sweater at Nordstrom Rack and both of them have been on major repeat in my wardrobe rotation! They’re super warm and also on-trend. Don’t you just love when fashion and function meet?

When I say that I love this sweater, I don’t think you want to know how much I have been wearing it. The print and mix of colors is just so versatile! To let the sweater shine, I kept my accessories minimal and just added a simple pendant necklace. This jacket has proved to be the ultimate topper this holiday season. It’s roomy enough that I can toss it on over my heaviest sweaters and faux fur vests without feeling too constricted. Win, win!

How are you staying warm while making a statement this month?


Since gifting has been the name of the game around here lately, I’ve got a few more gift suggestions for you today. I was shopping at the Nordstrom Rack in Union Square in NYC last week and loved all of their little gift ideas scattered throughout the store. My favorite was the basket of bedazzled Hanky Panky boxes near the checkout! (No wrapping required!) Three pairs for about the price of one and a half — such a great deal! They’re the perfect stocking stuffers, but I was tempted to buy a few sets for myself. One for you, one for me… 😉

Another favorite find was all of the Kate Spade earrings in the jewelry section — such pretty sparkly studs (great for everyday!) and diamond-like danglers for holiday parties. Fun jewelry is the perfect gift for all of your girlfriends and sisters, too!
