Good morning my beautiful readers! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving full of memories, friends, family, and Christmas decorating. The day after Christmas I trekked outside and strung lights on the bushes and around the railing posts next to our front door. Contrary to what I want it to look like, this wasn’t a stress-free event. I can’t “keep it together” when dealing with lights and I don’t know many people who can! However, I did try to look good doing it!
No stilettos and sweater dresses for me though! Embracing my inner outdoorsy-girl, I wore my favorite pair of Lucky Brand jeans, a quilted vest, blanket scarf, and a glamorous pair of Sperry Top-Sider duck boots.
One trend I finally embraced was the blanket scarf. I bought this one through an online retailer (link here) and was really happy when it came! Plenty of infinity scarves sit in my drawers untouched so here’s hoping I actually wear this blanket scarf a little more often. I like to tuck mine into my vest for added warmth.
Believe it or not, I found this quilted vest by Kenneth Cole at a thrift store! Cost me only a dollar and the color is great on me. J Crew has tempted me for several seasons with their coveted herringbone puffer vest but I think I’ll stick with this cheaper option.
In an effort to embrace the damp conditions of the Mid-Atlantic right now, I donned Sperry duck boots to make the outdoor decorating experience a little preppier. I don’t know about you, but I love the animal print going on in these!
Completing my basic white girl look is a partial duck face! The Christmas decorating isn’t quite over yet so I might be revisiting this outfit soon. It’s simple but it works for the occasion while making me look a tad bit cuter!
