december uniform

All month long, I’ve been wearing all the plaid and all the vests, usually together. It’s kind of become my December uniform.

Truthfully, this combination wasn’t my absolute favorite, but at least the colors were festive! My apologies for the weird lighting–it’s hard to find a time when the light is right and I can be home!

camel + green

I guess it’s all the Christmas trees around, but this time of year I want to wear forest green all the time. I dug around on my Pinterest board and found an outfit or two combining camel + green, so I decided to try to make that color palette work.

Aside from the fact that this outfit makes me blend in with my backyard (ha!), I do like this outfit. I have a skirt in a similar color to these pants, so I can see multiple iterations of this look in the coming weeks!

the shearling vest

I actually thrifted this vest quite some time ago, but I haven’t worn it because I didn’t really know how to wear it. You would think it would be relatively easy to style, given its neutral color…but I just couldn’t find the right pieces in my closet. I recently acquired both this ivory blouse and the tan mule booties that happen to match the vest perfectly, so I seized the opportunity to try out the combination.

It’s pretty simple, but I really like the look. It was perfect for a day of grocery shopping (amongst crazy pre-Thanksgiving crowds!) and cooking. But now I need more inspiration…how would you wear a shearling vest?
