All dressed up with nowhere to be. It's the final day of 2020 and I'm not going to sit here and tell you it's been a bad year because we all know. So, instead of wallowing in that, let's just take a deep breathe and prepare for 2021.

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate!

We, personally, celebrate a secular Americanized Christmas. We don't do any elements that pertain to the religious aspect of Christmas, and our Christmas is really just a celebration of winter and the warmth we all need in the cold months. My husband absolutely loves trimming the tree and decorating and Christmas jazz music and he grew up in a Buddhist household. 

This skirt is definitely my Christmas skirt and you know I had to add my favorite blouse for a romantic festive day of outfit. I know that black tights and light shoes are a faux pas, but I don't actually care.

Happy Christmas Eve if you celebrate it, and happy Thursday if you don't! 

This cape is one of my recent endeavors into Depop. I've shopped there multiple times, of course, but, I've been burned a little while doing so. From dropshippers to people who don't ship at all, it's been a ride. But, sometimes you're looking for a certain thing and you have to cross your fingers (and toes) and hope the seller is a good one. 

The blouse under the cape is actually a pajama top from a set from Target. I bought it because I like the print and it's a lightweight satin that's great for layering and all seasons. I also like the pajama lapels and it's so subtle but so chic on this blouse. I tucked it into a black faux leather midi skirt for an edgier, more cool girl outfit, and finished the look off with fleece lined tights--it is winter, after all--and these darling red suede Mary Jane heels. I ALMOST got a similar pair on Poshmark but it sold while I was asleep and these popped up on the market immediately after and I snagged them. They're very Keiko Lynn, who is one of my favorite bloggers, so, I appreciate the vibes.

Here's a to a safe, socially distances, stay-at-home Christmas!

Fall is officially over, and winter is here! We already got our first measurable snowfall last week, and it was beautiful, so, Fall has bene gone for a while here now. Honestly, when the leaves all fall off I'm ready for the snow.

I actually like the combination of green and red, even if it is very obviously Christmas. 

Apparently, red is exhilarating and green is calming and they balance each other out. I don't really do color therapy, but I like the striking combination!

Navy blue is a definite holiday color and I'm proving it here, with the mix of red and navy. This navy skirt is a new addition to my ever growing pleated midi skirt collection, and it holiday ready, isn't it?! I love navy as a winter color!

Sometimes all you want is to wear an oversized sweater and be comfy. 

I know there is the idea that skirts are uncomfortable but, honestly, they're much more comfortable than jeans and pants. I can lounge in a skirt, work in a skirt and enjoy a night out in a skirt. I won't do that in pants.

It's Wednesday, and instead of wearing pink, I'm donning a sheer white blouse. Wednesdays should be celebrated: we made it half way through, two more days until the weekend! And, I think a dramatic blouse is celebration enough.

Whenever I hear the word "holiday", I will forever be reminded of the Christmas Honda commercial that plays one line of Holiday by Vampire Weekend, "Holiday, O a holiday, and the best one of the year." The commercial conveniently leaves out the lyrics that allude to the Iraq War, but, you know, it sold cars in 2010, so, I guess whatever works! 

The song has nothing to do with the song or Vampire Weekend, though, I'm sure Ezra Koenig would appreciate the preppiness of my plaid poncho.

Finally, the appropriate time to wear this dress! I got this dress from Poshmark earlier this year in late Spring, and it's definitely meant to be a holiday dress--it's got a pretty heft weight to it with it's lining, and it's sleeved and just in general, the shape of a holiday dress. Without a belt it looks very much like a mid-Victorian nightgown. It's a trapeze dress, so it has very little shape and I feel like Ebenezer Scrooge in his nighty. Thank goodness for belts.

Did I wear a near exact outfit last year? Yes. But, I am a semi-pro outfit repeater, so what do you expect? I love the gold on the red and the length and the sleeves and the neck tie--it's a vibe I didn't even see myself falling into for 2020, but, as we saw this year, I am very into this. Very.

While everyone else wears their black peacoats and puffer coats, I wear red because it's the season of red, and I refuse to not wear it!

This coat is old, like, one of my first thrifted finds, old. But, it is a goodie! It's sufficiently warm and roomy, which is a necessity in the winter. It's not great for a mid-winter cold, but, thankfully, it isn't quite that frigid yet.

Green velvet, need I say more?

I found this beauty on Poshmark and a perfect holiday dress! I do love green, even if I don't wear a ton of it. In my opinion, green doesn't look good on me, but, with some additions like sheer tights and a Peter Pan collar, it makes it look a little less bad on me.

I found this wrap on ThredUp and you know how much I love a wrap, so it was a definite add to cart moment. It's dark and moody and thick, so, it's warm for the cold weather.

The return of the silver skirt. I loved my outfits last year with this skirt and it's a good winter skirt, as it brings in the cool tones into an outfit. It's great with red!

Talk about a combo! The pink in the sweater is a perfect match to the pink in this skirt and it's a totally winter appropriate look. I absolutely love this comfy casual look that makes it look like so much more effort went into this outfit than actually was. Patterns and textures in coordinating colors make it look like you did the most, even if you did the least.

Yellow is a four season color no matter what people try to claim. Winter yellow is a burst of color against the usual bleak skies and environment, and paired with red, it's holiday inspired! I paired my silk neck tie blouse with a red pleated midi skirt for a winter Holiday look!

I may look like Ronald McDonald, but, hey, it's iconic.

Mulled wine, it's a vibe. 

I cannot believe that, months apart, I thrifted two items that were the exact same color and go together so great!

Is your outfit not festive enough? Just add plaid!

Realistically, this outfit would need tights and boots for the weather out there, but, since I'm not going out there, these mules are fine! I'm on the hunt for a pair of resilient colorful boots for the wet winter season secondhand, but, you'll know if I find some!

December is here and I'm in my full pastel glory! I'm a more red December kind of gal, and I'm sure I'll go full on red later this month, but I'm just enjoying this secondhand Atlantic Pacific x Halogen sweater! I can definitely see this in a post Christmas winter, it just screams snow day!
