Christmas in Leopard

     Merry Christmas!  I hope y’all have had a lovely day with your dearest friends and family celebrating Christ’s birth and the incredible gift of eternal life that His being brought about.  I also hope that you got everything you wanted, but even if you didn’t I hope you remember that the gifts really aren’t what Christmas is all about.  Today I’m posting a somewhat festive outfit that would be perfect for today (in all honesty I didn’t wear it today but I thought it would be a fun look to share!).  Enjoy!

     I think playful patterns are so perfect for the holiday season, which makes the oh so trendy leopard print even more fitting for this Christmas!  My stepmother recently gave me this thin leopard J.Crew Factory sweater and I’ve loved styling it, leopard is so much more versatile than you might think!  I paired the neutral print with a maroon button down skirt from Forever 21 (I’ve had this skirt for a year and a half now and it’s still one of my most worn clothing pieces!).  I dressed up the skirt a bit with my lookalike Gucci belt (it was only $15!  Read my detailed post about the dupe here), a pair of hoop earrings with little crystal drops at the bottom, a crystal choker with a gold ring in the center, my Kate Spade watch, and some gold and white Sashka Co. bracelets.  I finished off the look with my taupe suede booties, which I get a ton of use out of this time of year.

Oh Christmas Tree

     Last weekend my family visited a local Christmas tree vender.  Obviously I brought my camera along, so today I thought I would share some pictures from our little trip!  I wore a white embroidered top under a tan coat with a pink plaid scarf and bean boots.  Needless to say, our family found the perfect tree for this holiday and we decorated it that afternoon.  Today’s post is the fourth in my Christmas themed blog series, so be sure to check out the last three (and some from last year) here!  Now it’s time to see the pictures from our Christmas tree picking, enjoy!
