MY CHRISTMAS GIFT OUTFIT

Shorts with tights is my new favorite combo lately. It’s so difficult to get creative with my wardrobe during the winter months because I get discouraged by the frigid temps. This outfit includes two Christmas gifts and you can be certain that clothing gifts are my absolute favorite. It’s clear that these gift-givers knew my style so I decided to create a look with both. The metallic Banana Republic peplum top is a new staple for me considering it can be worn casually with denim or dressed up with a skirt and/or trouser shorts. I decided to layer it over a white button-down, although if the weather permits it’s perfectly acceptable to wear it solo. And instead of my typical sheer black tights, I incorporated my other Christmas gift, these Anne Klein polka dot tights. I’ve been searching for tights like these since last New Year’s so you can imagine how excited I was to get these in my stocking this year. To top this look off, I slipped on my ONE and ONLY Black Friday purchase, these black laced booties. I can’t explain how comfortable they are and not to mention the added edge they give any outfit is undeniable.

Layered in Grey

Details: Banana Republic peplum knit top, here// Ann Taylor leather black pants, here// Ann Taylor 3/4 length black +grey jacket, similar here // black snake mules by Carrano, here

I think it’s safe to say that when in doubt, shades of grey are your best bet. This outfit is a personal favorite of mine, the Banana Republic windowpane black and white peplum sweater is one of my staples,  I like to call it my “Class Act” sweater because it’s sophisticated enough to wear to work, but it has a casual/fun side making it easily worn with jeans all colored denim for that matter. To top this look off, I layered it with my Ann Taylor 3/4 sleeve high collared jacket, which has become such a part  of me,  that it’s much like Linus van Pelt’s blanket (excuse my Charlie Brown reference).

On days like today when it’s difficult to pull yourself out of bed, let alone brush your hair,  create a shades of grey look of your own– it never fails.

Happy Friday!
