outfit: holiday

the holiday season is officially upon us, and i’m suddenly feeling the urge to wear wintery things in blue and white and silly holiday colors like red and green. the only catch is that we don’t exactly have wintery weather. but despite getting away with wearing sheer blouses and sandals in november, i still feel quite seasonally appropriate and i may or may not have mariah carey’s christmas album already bouncing around in my weary skull.

i’m actually really excited about the season because i get a little break from work and am heading down to southern california this week to visit with my family for thanksgiving. it’s become increasingly hard for me to be so far away from them these days, so i’m taking any excuse to make the trip. so excuse me if i’m a little checked-out lately, i’m just dreaming of turkey dinner and early morning coffee chatting with my grandparents and listening to their stories.

wearing: family affairs bee’s knees nordic blouse and bandito skirt, vintage sweater, vintage pillbox hat, j.crew bag, swedish hasbeens braided sky high sandals, ysl rouge pur couture in le rouge


  1. totally head over heels in love with this look. who needs red & green to get in the holiday spirit! blue has also had that icy, winter-y, cool vibe to set the mood!!

  2. cute cute cute cute! I love the beret! I’m ready to bust mine out again!!!! You’re hair is getting so long, your blog is slowly turning into the many haircuts of Shelley Duvall

  3. As always, I love how you put everything together! It’s nice to see a wintery ensemble that’s not just straight-up Christmas :) The little red pops on your bag and lips are so fun!

    I’ve also been busting out my many nordic-print sweaters, and I’m glad to see I’m not the only one!


  4. I’m SO inspired by all things Holiday too! I love the blue and white, a classic you do beautifully.

    Enjoy Thanksgiving, the time off and the family reunion :)

  5. Lovely outfit! I know what I mean about wearing wintery things even though it’s not really wintery outside. I live in Miami, so you can understand why that is. =)

  6. aw this is SO darling! I love the pillbox hat, it works really well on you! I always look like I have a mushroom on my head. I like this silhouette too- don’t see it on you very often!
