After an entire week with family in New Jersey, it really hurts to have to go back to work. It felt so good to be back in my hometown and I hadn’t eaten or slept that well in a while. I love the holidays. I say this every year, but I think I love the days leading up to Christmas more than I like Christmas. Those days are just filled with Christmas music, movies, shopping and nights on the couch enjoying a lit tree. As soon as I got back to Boston, I turned my tree on, flicked on the movie ELF and drank out of my Santa mug. I guess you could say that’s denial at its finest. However, even though the holidays are over, it doesn’t mean you can’t rock that infamous Christmas red. I pulled out my vintage red and check wool skirt from J.Crew and abandoned my usual fitted turtleneck and paired it with this trendy choker cut out zipper sleeve sweater. It’s super cozy and the funky zipper sleeves give this look an edge. I’ll admit, I wasn’t too keen on the choker trend, but after giving this sweater a shot, I think I’m a believer.
