Merry Christmas for those of you who celebrate Christmas! I will not have any more outfit posts this week, as I decided to take the week off. If all goes well, I should have outfit posts next week. I had a very a chill noche buena (Christmas Eve) and Christmas day. I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas fun of love, laughter, family and food!
This is not my Christmas outfit – it’s actually pj’s. But for my “holiday” look, I wore my version of a Christmas sweater. I don’t own any Christmas sweaters because frankly, I don’t like them, no matter how “cute” they are. I wanted a super chill outfit, so I paired this sweater with skinny jeans and black booties. A very simple outfit for a very basic Christmas.
Merry Christmas, Happy Early Kwanza and Happy (very belated) Hanukkah! And if you don’t celebrate any of the above, I hope you had a very restful, happy, joy filled, tummy filled four day weekend!

Vintage sweaters are my fave! My thrift store life goal is to find the coolest vintage sweaters on the planet. I have a long way to go but for now here you have this pretty little thing by French Rags. I did a quick google search and it seems that the brand is no longer in existence but that same google search generated several Etsy listings, so check that out here.
This is the perfect winter to spring transitional outfit; it’s warm enough to keep you warm in the morning and light enough to keep you cool in the afternoons. I’ve been playing around with my closet and trying to move things out of rotation. I pulled these jeans out of the closet (I forgot about them) and the embroidery flowers inspired the sweater. The sweater is a mix of grey and lavender but paired so well with the jeans. The outfit was very “greyed out” in color scheme so I added the neon yellow pvc heels for a pop of color. I kept the accessories simple by wearing this plexiglass clutch and a grey lip.

There’s something to be said about vintage sweaters. We usually don’t think about them until this time of year. They remind us of grandmothers sitting in their cozy living rooms by the fireplace knitting away at another snowman sweater or the tired office holiday party theme, ‘ugly sweaters.” I like to shop for vintage sweaters because often times, I end up using them as blouse replacements. So, I want something that has character. This vintage sweater is no ordinary sweater and definitely not your grandmother’s sweater.
I love anything sequin, sparkly and with lots of bling. So when I came across this sweater at my local Goodwill, I was ecstatic. It is super warm and versatile enough that I can wear it with just about anything. It is slightly large on me (shoulder pads removed) but I like the room that it gives because I can wear a blouse or camisole underneath. I really wanted this outfit to pop, so I decided to wear it with the Victoria Beckham for Target hot pink trousers, my snake print heels and a simple black clutch. I skipped on accessories altogehter because I wanted the outfit itself to do all the talking.
