Goodness, I didn’t realize how long these sleeves were until I saw the pictures. Next time, I’ll definitely be rolling them up a cuff or two!
The holiday countdown has officially begun for me!! Christmas is only 2 weeks away and I couldn’t be more excited! To kick off the countdown, I wanted to put on something festive and to me, nothing does the job better than the combination of red and gold. Full skirts are definitely in this year and this one was perfect in that it wasn’t too long that it shortened my already short legs and it wasn’t too poufy to make it inappropriate for work. The buttons down the center add a subtle hint of military inspiration without going overboard and it actually matched up with the metallic elements of the rest of the outfit perfectly!
I normally don’t wear baggy or oversized tops with high-waisted skirts, but the color of this top was just ideal. It was a light oatmeal color with little flecks of gold in the stitching — something that you would only notice if the fabric caught the light at the right angle. Since it was a baggier fit, I decided to untuck the sweater a bit and let it be a little looser around the waist. Overall, I think it worked, especially when topped off with a sparkly metallic belt!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend and staying warm! ^_^
