Holiday Inspiration and Mini Reviews

Long time no see...Look who's back!  and I come with holiday outfit inspiration and a few mini reviews.

Whether you're finishing up that last minute Christmas shopping, in the office or spending time with family and friends, I hope you do it in style.  Here are just a few of the holiday inspired looks that I've been wearing.

A couple of items in this look to rave about...the Abstract Fair Isle Zip Cardigan and the Perfect Shirt in Stewart Plaid.  This sweater was love at first sight and it did not disappoint irl.  It is so warm and cozy, but word of warning...size down.  I actually sized down two sizes and it still has that oversized look.  As for the plaid shirt, Gorgeous!  and imo, you can never have too many plaids!

A fun holiday pattern mix for the office...

The Perfect Cable Sweater in Speckled Wool...I tried this sweater on a whim and boy am I glad that I did.  I am definitely feeling multiples of this one.  It also comes in speckled gray, as well as, solids (navy, cream, red and yellow).  It's medium weight and tts.

Fair Isle for the holidays is a must!  This is an old favorite, but I've linked a few new goodies here...J Crew Collection Fair Isle Sweater, Boden Fair Isle Sweater, The Loft Reindeer Fair Isle, Gap Fair Isle Sweater, Talbots Reindeer Fair Isle and Old Navy Fair Isle  And on another note, these loafers are just too good not to mention...Mallory Suede Loafers from Target.  They are very reminiscent of J Crew's Georgie loafer for a fraction of the price.  tts and so, so comfy!!

See I told you fair isle was a must!  Haha  Another fair isle favorite...the bedazzled version! and a link to this year's version from J Crew, the Sequin Fair Isle Sweater.  Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention this fabulous Downtown Field Jacket from J Crew.  It's a great lightweight jacket and the perfect layering piece!  And this color...all kinds of gorgeous and so versatile!  I went with my normal size and there is still plenty of room for layers.

And the last look...a bit of holiday whimsy topped off with a pattern mix.  Mr. Reindeer is another oldie goldie, but I've linked the new J Crew Factory Reindeer Tee which would pair perfectly with this J Crew Campbell Blazer in Tweed...the blues would be excellent together!  This blazer is another one that had me at hello...houndstooth, suede elbow patches and a bit of blue..what's not to love?!  It runs to the small size of tts...I went with my normal size, but a size up would have worked as well.

I am so happy to be back in the blogging world!  Hopefully, you found something that inspires you!
