Happy Monday, my gorgeous friends!
How was everyone's weekend?! Christmas and Hanukkah are only a few days away; we celebrate both, so I double dip, haha! I'm so excited, you guys, we've got the menu all set up and guess what? I'm taking a break from the kitchen and Eddie's taking over! Remember I told you that I cook everything for Thanksgiving? Well, Eddie takes over for Christmas, though I'll be making the latkes, I at least get to sit back and relax most of the day :) What are some of YOUR holiday food traditions? I'd love to know!
Anyway, I'll be sharing some outfit inspirations this week to hopefully give you some ideas on what you can wear for your gathering(s). Today's look is definitely more suitable for a dressier setting. I personally think that a fedora and faux fur coat duo is the epitome of winter chic. The two can be a bit over the top when worn together, but this IS the season of over the top, so go for it, girlie! You'll most likely remove the hat anyway when you're indoors, but at least you can make a grand, fashionable entrance, while keeping your head warm ;)
I love to substitute a pair of black or dark wash jeans with unexpected colors, such as plum, especially during the winter months. I feel they're a great, stylish alternative that makes an outfit appear that much more fashionable and interesting. Plus, when coupled with a lush texture, such as faux fur or velvet, it can exude a dressier, luxurious vibe without trying too hard.
The coat I'm wearing is a bomber style, which can add some bulkiness to the look and body, especially since there's added texture with the faux fur. If this is an effect you don't like or want, then I'd suggest opting for a longer fur coat that doesn't have any lapels to avoid the bulk.
I hope this look inspired you in some way, my dear friends! I also want to thank you for your well wishes, I'm feeling MUCH better!! Let's make this week awesome, the holidays are right around the corner!
