So, I originally planned to post a gift guide today, but then I realized that most of you have probably already finished your Christmas shopping and would rather just see a festive and fun, wintery outfit instead! I’m having a bit of a blue Christmas, but not because I’m sad – I just can’t stop wearing blue! This color seems to be on repeat for me this winter season, and I’m not mad about it. I wore this exact same sweater for my engagement photos, along with a similarly color-schemed shoot here. It’s only $13 from H&M and comes in 8 other colors (and I own three of them)!
This is a ridiculously comfortable outfit, but it can still be worn to holiday parties and the like. Because I added this glamorous faux fur vest from Clavillè Fashion Truck here in RVA, the entire look is taken up a notch. When I saw this vest, I knew I couldn’t resist. It’s soft, warm, and it has pockets (which makes it an instant winner in my book)! This is definitely one of my outfit ideas for New Year’s Eve since I’ve combined faux fur, leather, and velvet in one ensemble. It doesn’t get much more party-ready than that!
I remember when I was younger, hearing that blue and black shouldn’t be mixed together. I laugh now when I think about that because blue and black have become one of my favorite color combinations of all time. They’re classy, sultry, and flattering on anyone. What do you think of these two together? And would you wear this outfit to a festive holiday party?
