Christmas Shopping

How crazy is it that Christmas is almost two weeks away? I don’t know about you, but it seems like each day is busier and more stressful than the previous. Between keeping up with the regular daily activities, buying and wrapping presents {ok, haven’t wrapped anything yet!} and preparing for our Christmas party this weekend, I’m beat! With the countdown on to purchase those remaining gifts, I’m sharing a cute and comfortable outfit that is shopping approved…caffeine included!







Sweater: BP. via Nordstrom {on sale!} | Scarf: J.Crew Factory | Jeans: J.Crew | Flats: Chinese Laundry {available in several colors & under $60!} | Watch: MICHELE | Bag: Chanel, classic in jumbo {used HERE, similar under $300 HERE} | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Nail polish: wildfire {the perfect holiday red!} | Lips: #09

Return of the blanket scarf! You didn’t think I could go all holiday season without sharing a festive blanket scarf, did you?! All kidding aside, I do love blanket scarves and have been searching for a red and green plaid scarf since last Christmas. When I came across THIS one at J.Crew Factory pre-Black Friday {unfortunately, this color combination is sold out, other colors available} I knew that it would be perfect for a weekend full of Christmas shopping. And honestly, this scarf is more like a blanket, it’s HUGE! I had it on the floor in the family room and Ella instantly walked over and sat on it, thinking it was her blanket! Obviously, it’s Ella-approved 🙂

A few other must-haves: I have THIS sweater in the taupe color as well and it’s one of my favorites from this season. With a crewneck and oversized fit, it’s super cozy for the colder temperatures. And it’s currently on sale…$23 to be precise!! The perfect winter staple sweater in my book. Lastly, THIS red nail polish is my very favorite for this time of the year. I wore it all of December last year and it’s looking to be a repeat this year. It’s a weekly polish and so far, it’s held up pretty well. I painted my nails last Friday and they still look good. And it really is the perfect holiday red — I’m obsessed!

Any fun weekend plans? As I mentioned earlier, we are having our Christmas party Saturday evening so I have a lot of cleaning, cooking and baking ahead of me the next two days! It’s mostly drinks and hor d’oeuvres, but I have some delicious recipes I’m planning to make. I may share a few on the blog in the next week or so if anyone is interested! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend, friends!
